Mercury is still retrograde, so make sure you're being clear in all communications.
March 21-April 19
Not only is Mercury astrological ruler of texts, e-mail, chats, and processing of all kinds retrograde this week, but it's moonwalking in your opposing sign. This may put you in a bad bargaining position, Aries. Turn that lemon into lemonade by cutting problems off at the pass. Be super honest, direct, and to the point.
April 20-May 20
Your inner child wanted to watch a movie that your inner parent knew would be too scary, but your inner child begged and got its way. Now your inner parent is disgruntled because it has to take care of an inner child who's scared of her own shadow! Have better boundaries with yourself so that you avoid the problems you see coming from a mile away.
May 21-June 21
You are so Goldilocks right now! You're on the fence about how much pressure is too much or just right. The time is right for you to be assertive, sweet heart. Step out and firmly stake your claims, just don't get too aggressive and entitled about it. If your ego is out of balance, those bears are gonna have one delicious Gemini soup.
June 22-July 22
Your emotions are like so many newfangled roller-coasters they move way too fast and throw you l upside down and all around. It makes your intuition get stomach sick, and thus unreliable. This week avoid the coasters, bumper cars, and teacups, and opt instead for a Ferris wheel. Take it slow and look at things from as many angles as you can.
July 23-Aug. 22
Leo, you have got to do something about your anxiety levels. But just any old thing will won't do. This is not the time for brash or impulsive action, no matter how desperate you may feel. Stop whatever you're doing before you try to fix things. Ask for support from your peeps and then slow down enough to receive it.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
Being controlling doesn't actually give you any control, Virgo. Taking responsibility for your needs is totally tubular, but doesn't promise you any rewards. Put your best out there without stipulations about what needs to happen in order for you to continue being your awesomest. Take care of yourself because it will make you a better person.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
Coping with loss and disappointment is not easy for any sign, but you like to keep things pleasant, which is tough going when you're bummin' hard. Look at what's got you twisted in your relationships vs. what you are projecting onto them. This week is triggering some old patterns so that you can see your part in them and start some healing.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
Feeling lonely and being alone are two separate things, Scorp. Get real about where you're at with your people. There's nothing wrong with letting yourself feel lonely if that's what's real for you, but don't convince yourself that you are hopelessly without recourse just because you feel hopeless. Acknowledge your options even if you won't exercise them.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
There are more ways things can go than either awesome or crapola. Allow yourself to reserve judgment until you have a clearer vision of what's going on. The weight of the world is a heavy load on your weary shoulders, pal. Allow your life to develop as you make room to adjust to the many changes you are going through.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
Your past is a powerful teacher, and it would behoove you to study it carefully. Blaming yourself for problems is a waste of energy: even if you're at fault, blame is a game with no winners. Look at who you once were and who you are now, and make sure you like the souped-up autumnal '09 you. Whatever does not please you is your homework!
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
You need a good book, a cozy comforter, and some quality time with a sexy Water Bearer named you.
