Aug. 26 - Sept.1
This week it's important to indulge some of that intensity your sign is so famous for but do it in private.
March 21-April 19
Your governing planet is Mars, the ruler of action, sexin', and generally making things happen. So it should pose no problem for you to rise to the occasion and resolve old conflicts in a proactive way. Forget proving your point or explaining your side of things. Let your actions speak for themselves.
April 20-May 20
Self-doubt and paranoia is such a waste of energy. Even if you trip on every obstacle in your path, you're still traversing the same way. Your sign is inclined toward being stubborn and slow, and often hesitant to change. Realign your focus, then your energies, so you keep moving towards your goals.
May 21-June 21
You don't know who you want to let into your inner circle. You are struggling with deep questions about obligations and priorities in your intimate relationships, and you have some unmet expectations. The question is, could it be you who hasn't stepped up? The answers aren't simple, so think carefully before you act.
June 22-July 22
The truth works, Cancer. If you've been trying to do what you think others want or have been disingenuous for any reason, it's only making you feel worse. Deal with the potentially impractical and awkward realness of where you are and give your life a chance to meet you there.
July 23-Aug. 22
Forgiveness is giving up all hope for a better past. Look at the grudges you hold against yourself and others. All that negativity is bringing you down, man. There is nothing to figure out, except whether you are ready to let go. To forgive is not to forget or pretend things are perfect, but to release unnecessary sadness.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
To paraphrase, don't build your Rome in 50 seconds. You don't need to fix everything right away. For now, just cut things up into digestible pieces so you can work on them bit by bit. You will have the most peace and productivity if you don't let yourself get overwhelmed. Take your time so that in your moment to shine, you down-right sparkle.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
Guilt is an ugly bedmate, and a sign as vainglorious as yours deserves a little more pretty at night. Look at how and where you are responsible for things you aren't happy with. Own it, be a humble human, then do you what you've got to. You may need to make some apologies so you can step out of that shame spiral. It'll be worth it.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
You've got too much going on. You need and deserve a break. This week it's important to indulge some of that intensity your sign is so famous for but do it in private. The universe wants you to work on the fine art of self-regulation and pay close attention to when you get burnt out so you don't barrel past that point.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Everybody's got rules, and we're all entitled to them. But sitting around waiting for others to figure out your preferences and regulations in an exercise in futility. Open your big mouth and speak clearly those things you know to be real for you. Optimism alone won't bring people around to your perspective.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
BFFs, frenemies, homies, and the kinds of bros one is meant to put before ho's are all of supreme importance to Cap right now. You cannot be the empire you were born to be without the support and camaraderie of true friendship. Invest in people who hold you up, then allow yourself to enjoy the feeling for a change.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
Revolution is grand, but if you're unprepared for it, things can go from fabulous to funky in a heartbeat. You may have put into motion the hands of change before you were completely ready, and now find yourself in a low self-esteem pickle. Do like those shoot 'em up video games: reload offscreen as you gather your energy.
Feb. 19-March 20
You want so badly to do things right that you are looking too far outside of yourself. There is no right or wrong way to hit things, just paths with different consequences. Allow for your vulnerabilities to have their place so they don't passive aggressively run the show. *
