Sept. 1 - 8
It's not right to be warm with people only when they give you what you want or to feel good about your outfit only if you get compliments.
Mercury goes retrograde Sept. 7, so remember to dot your i's and cross those t's!
March 21-April 19
Strive to find the balance between taking responsibility for things and taking charge of them. You are going through major transitions that demand your constant attention, Aries, and if you are willing to be humble enough to recognize what you can't change, you'll be able to get to what you can. Be humane and not an attention ho this week.
April 20-May 20
What's so frustrating is that you just don't know what you want, Taurus. Sure, you know what you think you want, but then there are these parts of you that keep undermining your good sense with their own agenda. Get a look at the ways you're self-sabotaging by clarifying what it is that you're really after. No need to bring all that junk to your shrink, just cut it out.
May 21-June 21
Ground control, it's Major Gem. Commence your countdown, engines on (you know the song). Everyone knows you can get all spaced out and spazzy, its part of your sparkle charm. This week get in touch with your ground, the real nuts and bolts of what fuels your engine. Things are apt to start spinning way out of your control if you don't.
June 22-July 22
When mercury goes retrograde it's a rough time to keep the lines of communication clear. This week is likely to find you trying to put a positive spin on things you're just not sure are all that. Find the best in your situations without glossing over what is still missing from them. Avoid speaking up until you know exactly what you need to say, Crabcakes.
July 23-Aug. 22
It's time to get off your durn keister and cut through the crap, Sunshine! You've been wallowing in discontent for too long now and you need to make some healthy choices. Don't be scared of change, 'cause you need it right now! Stand firm for the life you want and be willing to do whatever is necessary to make it happen.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
Sometimes you've gotta fight for peace, man. In order to get the kind of quality of life you're looking for, you are going to need to take some chances and have some changes of heart. Find the stability in the chaos of growth by looking at the big picture. Getting mired in the details will make you miss the point of all this excitement and lose your way.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
Being independent doesn't mean being lonely, and being free doesn't allow you to wander the streets without any obligations. You have much to learn about understanding the parameters of your autonomy this week. Maintaining your uniqueness shouldn't interrupt your closest relationships if it is, you're doing something wrong.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
Don't get too comfortable, Scorpio, because you've only just begun! This week take stock of all the things you've been working on. It may have been feeling like you were treading water for some time, but things have finally started to come together. Don't rest on your laurels. Enjoy your current progress, but keep on keepin' on.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Your attitude can help you out or hold you back, Sag. Don't let fearfulness and your resistance to letting go stop you from seeing all the good that is inherent in the changes before you. See if you can get grateful for what you do have and hopeful for what's yet to come! Put out the good vibes you want to receive for best results.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
It's not right to be warm with people only when they give you what you want or to feel good about your outfit only if you get compliments on it. You've got to have more belief in yourself, Cap. Develop a greater willingness to stay emotionally present, even through the hard stuff. Don't go through the motions, even if that means slowing down your progress.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
A little bit of fear makes a person cautious and that's not all bad. Too much worry, à la you right now, makes everything and everyone a suspect, and that's no way to live. Be brave, badass, and beautiful this week as you proactively make shit happen. Trust yourself to make good enough calls so you can trust what's going on around you.
Feb. 19-March 20
Get excited enough about something, and feel compelled to act on it, Pisces. Whether it's a social activity or some major life revision, it's your time to boldly go where you've never gone before. Just don't be a selfish fish, and make sure you don't alienate your supporting cast in your enthusiasm. *
