Oct. 7-13: Lucky for you, you've got a gamblers spirit because it's time to roll the dice
March 21-April 19
There is a bummer in town and it has taken up residence in your achy-breaky heart. No matter what the downer is, the worst thing for you to do right now is to boldly and courageously get past it. That's right, Aries. Trying to push ahead will backfire. Instead, right the loss of balance you feel on the inside.
April 20-May 20
You've got a breakthrough percoutf8g. This is not the time for compromising your vision or plans, but don't confuse that with a green light to forgo diplomacy. Stand firm for what you want, and kick some ass to get it. Including others in your process will not only advance your cause, it will make it sweeter too.
May 21-June 21
How can you maintain your sense of self around all the different people in your world? Work toward moving in different circles and still remaining true to your identity. Know yourself well enough that you can hold your own, no matter what your circumstances.
June 22-July 22
You have to take some risks in the name of a happy heart. Being emotionally open is hard work, 'cause you run the risk of being open to the bad stuff along with the good. It's worth it. Make whatever adjustments necessary to stay balanced. And try to bring a sense of adventure to the unknown, rather than the worrying you're famous for.
July 23-Aug. 22
In the illustrious words of Young MC, "Don't just stand there, bust a move." Amass your energy and make shit happen, Leo. Just do it differently than you used to, now informed by the wisdom of your past exploits. Step out and leave all the old demons behind you so you can make new mistakes instead of the same tired old ones.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
The thing about hoarders is not that they are terribly materialistic, but that they attribute sentimentality to objects in a way that it makes it hard to get rid of anything. The process of discerning what needs to go and then giving it the old heave-ho is an art form. Recognize what's outlived it's usefulness in your life and let it go.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
Fretting over things doesn't actually improve matters. Finding someone you can blame for injustices has a shelf life. This week, take responsibility for what you are bringing to the table, remembering that if you are not part of the solution, you're part of the problem. Channel your inner diplomat and put 'er to work.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
Your week is very Sammy Davis Jr., very "I've just gotta be me." Not remaking past mistakes takes a bit of patience and a lot of insight. If you can swing being true to yourself, it'll help you step up and be unhampered by the crappy conditions you've been living under. Make up your mind and then speak it out, Scorpio. Things are looking up.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Lucky for you, you've got a gamblers spirit because it's time to roll the dice. Well-timed action and a little risk-taking will carry you far. Just don't let external pressures bully you. Find your own pace and follow that.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
You may posture like a badass, but I know you struggle with not trusting yourself. Anxiety is the only thing that can get in your way, so develop a strategy for dealing with it before it smacks you around again. Every light casts some shadow, so don't get caught up in your fear of the dark. You're on the right track, Cap.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
This is not the time to freeze up or throw in the towel. Change your life for the better, even if you feel like giving up. You have something to learn from all those obstacles in your way, but not quite yet. The universe wants you to find the energy that can carry you forward before you make any important moves, so get it together.
Feb. 19-March 20
Trust your instincts, because you're on a one-way track to awesome. This is one of those special times when your energy is in harmony with your insight, which is flowing with your wits. In other words, you can totally make shit happen! If you don't know what you want, now is the time to figure it out and follow through on what feels right. *
