ARIES (Mar. 20 - Apr. 20) Okay, ready, set — change! If you have wanted to break free of someone or something, now is the time. The energy for freedom is big, so use this energy to free yourself from any situation that has been holding you back. It's okay to do it one step at a time, so you don't have to feel like you have to be in a hurry. Pace yourself, just make the changes.
TAURUS (Apr. 20 - May 21) Time for some talking and more talking. Even hard things will be easier to say and will be more kindly received under this week's energy. So write some poetry or have a heart to heart with the one you love, or get in touch with a long lost friend. Talk about things and clear the air. It's time.
GEMINI (May 21 - June 22) It's all about feelings this week. You may find yourself more sensitive than normal, so it's a great week for romance or spending time with small children; it just may be harder in the 'real' world. It's best to try to not take things too personally. Know that it is your sensitivity that is heightened, not other people's ability to be rude.
CANCER (June 22 - July 23) You are a crab and you do have that nice hard outer shell that you can retreat into and this week may be the perfect time to lay low and seek protection where you can find it. The energy is big and stern and your delicate constitution may find it difficult to tolerate. So see if you can remember that hard outer shell and know that you can stand up to whatever is going on around you.
LEO (July 23 - Aug. 23) Serious, serious, serious. Try to think 'sober' and 'real,' rather than getting overly serious about things. You just want to make sure you check in with yourself and are clear that you are seeing things as they really are and that you're not overreacting because you are feeling so heavy. The heavy energy will pass, so try not to do or say things that will be impossible to undo later on.
VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 23) Really, really try to avoid any 'poor me' thinking this week. Know that you are not a victim; you are truly a resourceful survivor. Indulging in the victim roll right now will tend to ignite your anger and right now the anger vibe is way too big to be playing with. So, take hold of your life and take charge. It's not about blaming others, chances are you aren't see things clearly. It IS about you being real and finding and standing in your power. Anger is not the only way to feel powerful.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 23) Mushy, sentimental and nostalgic are all words I would use to describe this week's energy. Not your usual mode to feel this mushy, so you may as well ride the wave. Great time to listen to music or write some poetry. Use this week to tell all the mushy people you know how much you love them — they'll love it! They may be surprised to hear it coming from you — yet they will love it!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 - Nov. 22) Relationship matters may not be working out too well this week, so you may want to put big plans on hold, at least for a few days. Best to let go of expectations, in all areas of your life. You get more from those around by expecting nothing. Feel free to talk about what you need, just don't expect anything. Hidden expectations still count as expectations.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21) As long as you don't need for things to go in a very orderly fashion this week, you will probably get a great deal accomplished. The energy is changeable yet productive. So go with the changes and just keep one foot in front of the other and keep moving. It may end up that you are so busy you can't even think, in that case, take a break and re-group, then move forward.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 21 - Jan. 20) Sometimes chaos happens. This would be one of those weeks when things may seem totally out of your hands and your left standing there wondering what just happened. You don't like to move too quickly, so this quick changing energy may be uncomfortable, yet you can do it. Why not try lightening up and not taking it all so seriously and try to have fun instead — you know that fun thing right?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. 19) Once again — no running with scissors! It's a fun-filled week, with lots of opportunity and good feelings, so you don't want to overdo things or take on too much. Pace yourself and enjoy the good fun energy. Avoid angry situations or people and it would be best to walk away from a potential fight than to jump in.
PISCES (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20) Stick close to home and watch the show! Outside forces, people, situations may get overly serious and make themselves big and scary, so you may want to pace yourself and wait for all the information to come in before you react, or before you get too serious about something that may not matter at all by next week. Do your best to stay lighthearted and see the humor in all of it!
NOTE: If you were born at the end or beginning of a sign, read the sign before and after your birthday.
