This week starts with inquisitive Mercury switching signs and entering Aquarius on January 16th. The following day, the Third Quarter Moon in Libra ends eclipse season (which will be a reprieve for us all). Mercury and healing asteroid Chiron, who’s in Aries, softly align on the 17th, allowing us to express our feelings clearly. The 18th brings radical insights to the forefront of our mind, when Mercury and Uranus, who’s in Taurus, square off in the cosmos. The Sun enters Aquarius on the 20th, setting off a new thirty day cycle around originality and humanitarian concerns. We round off the week with Venus, who’s in Pisces, making emotional and romantic waves around the Nodes of Destiny on the 20th
March 21 - April 19
Call upon your friends and community who support your goals, and drop any negative influences or mindset. You will be surprised how much you can achieve when others believe in your dreams. Not only your community boost you up when you’re down, but they will also lend their help and be of service to your cause by being a sounding board for you to filter out ideas with. Believe in yourself and others will too!
April 20 - May 20
Your soul will be awakened now, allowing you to disconnect from the material world into an altered state of happiness through spirituality or a higher power. You may find that your quest for knowledge and understanding is heightened from the philosophical stimulation you’ve been receiving through your studies. Let your mind open and become aware of all the natural forces and energies in the world. This will help you to attain the mindfulness you crave.
May 21 - June 20
Your desires are transforming, which are causing you to become more aware of what goes on in the other realms. Embracing the darkness, or your shadow self, will help you to rebirth your dreams and goals. At this time, you’re becoming in tune and rhythmic with all the parts of yourself — the good, the bad, and the ugly. Your personal evolution will grant you the ability to use your chameleon energy and grow within.
June 21 - July 22
You are being taught major lessons around relationships, all echoing the “golden rule” of partnerships: “do unto others as you’d have done onto you.” While that sentiment seems logical and nice, it’s the opposite of your personal vibe as it juxtaposes with your recent ideology about being number one. This may cause you to act out in ways you thought you would never do in order for you to achieve success, fame, and notoriety professionally.
July 23 - August 22
The week serves as a chance for you to implement structure into your innermost dreams. Throughout the week, you’ll have mini doses of cosmic inspiration floating your way which will have a great impact on the way you attain your goals. You’ll have the chance to set up the next phase of your professional and personal visions — which will take minimal effort, as the stars are on your side, pushing you towards attaining success.
August 23 - September 22
Daily life has left you feeling mundane and uninspired. You may feel as though your stamina and strength is fading — which is why you need a pick-me-up. The stars are helping you evolve your daily grind by giving you the push to explore the inner workings of your mind. You may decide to attend a yoga class or try Transcendental Meditation, along with your personal mantra, to perk up your vibe and boost your energy.
September 23 - October 22
This week calls for you to revolt against societal norms and dissolve your ties from outdated spiritual beliefs imposed on you by others. Your desire to transform your beliefs is strong, as you are thirsting to incorporate your newly found philosophical and spiritual wisdom into your life. The caveat is that you may confuse those close to you with your new attitude. Have patience with your friends and family while they embrace the new you.
October 23 - November 21
The lack of security in your life may cause inner anxieties to surface, mostly due to the personal matters becoming public. You’re not one to take deceptions lying down and you’ll certainly want to fight back against those discrediting you. However, you’ll come to find that it’s not worth involving yourself in the drama of this situation (even though it involves you directly). You’ll take the high road and let others believe what they want.
November 22 - December 21
You’re rebelling against the constraints
that hold you back from being the truest version of yourself. You will emerge victorious this week by breaking the barriers that stand in your way to freedom, but you’re also going to be hit with other matters that you didn’t see coming. Try to keep a positive perspective and stand in your power. You may feel like giving up on your pursuits; however, your willfulness will keep you going.
December 22 - January 19
You’ve gotten too heady for your earthy vibe, which is causing you to have anxiety and stress. It’s important for you to take a step back and allow yourself a moment to detox your brain through breathing exercises or meditation. Your mind is on overload and it’s making you evaluate every decision you’ve made ad nauseam. Once you unwind and calm your thoughts down, you’ll find clarity and relief knowing your fears are not real.
January 20 - February 18
Change is always a part of your life. This week, you’re yearning for intimacy will transform relationships (for the better), as you are switching the dynamic between you and others. You normally have an aloof approach to love, romance, and friendships. However, you’re passions are burning hot and bright (which is totally unlike you), forcing you to take control of relationships by letting your feelings be known. You’re not holding back, you are speaking out.
February 19 - March 20
You’re a giver, not a taker in life. This sentiment is sweet, as long as others aren’t taking advantage of you. Setting more boundaries will help you find your footing and peacefulness this week. But, you’ll need to take a step back when circumstances and relationships feel overwhelming. Instead of fighting for a cause or person, try to let the matter resolve itself. This way, you’ll set the precedent that you cannot be emotionally manipulated.
