Witch tips  

This week kicks off with healing vibes brought to us by the Aquarius Sun and the asteroid Chiron, who’s in Aries, on the 22nd. The following day, we’ll all be the recipient of emotional surprises, when the Sun and Uranus, who’s in Taurus, square off. Venus, who’s in Pisces, and Jupiter, who’s in Capricorn, give us a lucky reprieve from the drama earlier in the day on the 23rd when they connect. The Aquarius New Moon occurs on January 24th and it will serve to shake up our lives. The 25th allows us to take action in our New Moon manifestations, when Mercury, who’s in Aquarius, and Mars, who’s in Sagittarius, collide in the cosmos. Venus and Mars square off on the 26th, creating intense romantic vibes. The 27th is the best day of the year for love and financial matters, due to Venus and Neptune aligning in Pisces. The only issue is that we may not be able to make any moves on the 28th, as Mars and Neptune will make us take a step back from moving forward this week.

You’re more motivated than ever to get your finances in order. This will require you to manifest abundance. In order to do so, you’ll have to take a dollar bill out of your purse or wallet. Sprinkle Himalayan sea salt or Epsom salt and sugar (for sweetness!) on top of it, and then light it with a match. As you watch the flame burn, allow the smoke to carry your wishes up into the atmosphere.




April 20 - May 20


It’s time you took your power back! Stop giving your energy to those who don’t deserve your time and fabulousness. Write a beautiful love poem yourself (preferably on something bio-degradable like the skin of a fruit or vegetable), and then toss it into a nearby flowing stream of natural water. The universe will help aide you in boosting up your confidence, if stay consistent in your practice of daily affirmations to elevate your amazing attributes.

Opening your mind to higher pursuits and meditative activities will allow you to unwind this week. You do the work of two people, wrapped in one person — which is why you need a momentary reprieve from all of your stressors. Breathwork, such as Transformational and Shamanic Breathwork, will engage your mind, body, spirit, and heart in healing. These techniques will clear out all of the negative and stale energy within, by bringing in fresh vibes. 




June 21 - July 22


A friendship has become too toxic to handle. Now, you’re making plans to let go of your pal as a result of their destructive actions. Before you completely cut them out of your life, meditate on the relationship. If you’re not ready to dissolve the partnership, then you can you don’t have to. However, if they are causing more trouble than they are worth — then it might be time to cut the cord completely. 




July 23 - August 22


Relationships will become erratic this week, especially during the New Moon. You may feel as though you are being pushed into a situation that you don’t wish to be a part of. To be real, you’ve created and added on drama to the matter at hand, which is why you may catch flack for choosing to dip out when the situation escalates. The only advice is to be careful in how you address these issues.

It’s time to set firm boundaries with others. This will help kick up your self-esteem, as you are given the cosmic push to create limits and structure within relationships. There may have been a strain on relationships, due to the fact that you are being taken for granted by those who are close to you. Luckily, the stars are here to help you to move forward with your peers — in a more defined direction. 




September 23 - October 22


A new artistic vision is blooming now, which may create anxiety within you to come to a head. You’re scared about taking the lead on projects and becoming responsible for substantial endeavors. Don’t shy away from these tasks. Give yourself a moment and some time to carefully craft the next stages of the project before jumping in. Having a schedule, being organized, and setting goals will help you become successful at the task on hand. 




October 23 - November 21


You’re diving head first into an exciting new partnership during the New Moon. You’ll want to commit fast like the rhythm of your heart because you’re in the mood to partner up and merge with your significant other. Be careful in moving too fast and quickly in such matters. You may engage in a minor power struggle, which will force you to assert your individuality and set some limitations of your own in the relationship. 




November 22 - December 21)


You may feel a bit restless this week and long for excitement. Instead of sitting at your desk pencil pushing and clock watching, switch up your vibe. By simply changing up your routine, you will be able to create better chi around the office or at home. Take a walk during your lunch break and cleanse your work area with Palo Santo to elevate the energy that surrounds you. It will boost your aura too.




December 22 - January 19


The only issue coming your way this week is concerning your finances. You may have minor issues with your finances that will force you to implement more structure to your budget. The bills from the holidays are starting to roll in and it’s important for you to make a payment plan to avoid extra fees from ecrewing. Growing a money tree or burning a green candle will help to boost your bank account and assets. 




January 20 - February 18


You are gaining insight into yourself and speaking your personal truth, which may create issues within relationships this week. All of the looming drama may make you avoid confrontation. If you don’t let your friends, family members, and S.O. know how you feel, then you may bottle up all of your emotions and explode at them over insignificant matters. Try to have a gentle conversation with those who are causing you annoyance. Don’t point fingers! 




February 19 - March 20


The past few weeks have left your head aching with work dilemmas and dramas, giving you minimal time to hang out with your crew and have personal time. This has left you feeling energetically depleted and exhausted. Chin up! You will have plenty of time to catch up with others and reconnect this week. Your dreams of snuggling up on the sofa and taking a much needed break from the world are now a reality.
