Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19):
“To feel intensely is not a symptom of weakness, it is the trademark of the truly alive and compassionate.” -Anthon St. Maarten
As a sensitive soul, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed especially after the many changes that have occurred this year. Embrace your emotions and let them be felt. Reflect and grow from the events happening around you. However, at the same time, recognize that it can be exhausting spending too much time wrapped in your own thoughts. Be sure to find a balance between introspection and living in the moment.
Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20):
“Jealousy is both reasonable and belongs to reasonable men, while envy is base and belongs to the base, for the one makes himself get good things by jealousy, while the other does not allow his neighbor to have them through envy.” –Aristotle
You may feel a little unsteady lately due to some recent challenges. When looking around at the lives of others, be sure to note that everyone faces their own battles. A dose of jealousy can spark motivation to achieve something. However, letting it consume you will only create new challenges in your life, creating blocks in your own thoughts and desires. You have equally as much to offer as those you perceive as above you; don’t forget your worth.
Gemini (May 21-June 20):
“You can’t forgive without loving. And I don’t mean sentimentality. I don’t mean mush. I mean having enough courage to stand up and say, ‘I forgive. I’m finished with it.’” -Maya Angelou
A time for growth and change is coming. While this normally pushes you to switch paths and avoid confrontation, try and sit in your discomfort a little. Take this time to make peace with past mistakes, relationships, or other troubles that have held your attention for too long. Allow this forgiveness to bridge a way to new explorations for your future. Make room.
Cancer (June 21-July 22):
“You owe yourself the love that you so freely give to others.” -Unknown
You’re a natural giver and never fail to provide for those you love. However, always remember to make time to care and love yourself as well. It’s easy to invest your time and find worth in things or people other than yourself. Now is a good time to put YOU on the top of your list and give yourself some extra love in whatever way you see fit.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22):
“To let go does not mean to get rid of. To let go means to let be. When we let be with compassion, things come and go on their own.” -Jack Kornfield
A natural-born leader, it’s easy for you to take control of your life and new developments that arrive. Especially over the next month you will feel a kick of motivation. Control is good and proves ambition, but too much can be toxic for your well-being and those around you. Be sure to take breaks and ease on the reigns to decrease your stress, and never forget that it’s okay to sit back and let others help you.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22):
“There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine…” -Marianne Williamson
You have recently felt very open to new things and free. Throughout the next month you may feel some insecurities trying to encroach on your newfound liberty. Prone to over-analyzing yourself and others, be sure to take extra time for self-care when you’re feeling down and never fret on expressing your emotions to those around you. Enjoy the good things around you and don’t give way to negative thoughts that are trying to crowd your happiness.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22):
“If you go off into a far, far forest and get very quiet, you’ll come to understand that you’re connected with everything.” -Alan Watts
For someone who is normally very balanced, recently you’ve been feeling off-kilter. Take time to disconnect and recharge to find that equilibrium again, but try not to distance yourself too much. Alone time is valuable, but with moderation. Make sure to express your gratitude to those who have helped to keep you stable through rough times. It is good to be connected to yourself but from that stems our connection to others, and both are needed for a happy, harmonious life.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21):
“It is easier to be happy if you look beyond imperfections than seeking happiness by trying too hard to make everything perfect.” -Anonymous
Striving for perfection is a good trait to have, but it can also be your downfall. When things go awry, it may not be entirely bad. Try something new and embrace that change. With negative experiences comes the opportunity to learn and grow in new ways. ‘Live and let live’ a little this month.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):
“I walk toward the kind of fear that leads me to expansion and growth; I walk away from the fear that is not serving me anymore.” -Jennifer Williamson
Typically being very confident and outgoing, you grow fearful when insecurities creep in. Don’t let your power fall as questions loom and challenges pop up over the next month. Fear can push us to plummet or it can build us up with new strengths and courage. Be sure to march forward and embrace your fear. Everyone feels fragile at times, but know that there’s strength in that and to not be afraid to rely on others if you need an extra push to keep moving forward.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19):
“A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.” -John Lennon
Your ambition and motivation is relentless when it comes to the things you’re passionate about. This has pushed you to accomplish many things, but can also isolate you from other aspects of your life. At this time be sure to remember that pursuing your desires and working hard is amazing. But remember the team of people around you that are helping you achieve those dreams; don’t let them go unrecognized and don’t grow too secluded. It’s better to have someone to celebrate with.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):
“Keep your heart open to dreams. For as long as there’s a dream, there is hope, and as long as there is hope, there is joy in living.” -Unknown
After a period of hard work, you may be starting to feel exhausted. Be careful as this period of fatigue could push you into isolation and elicit a lack of motivation. However, with more inspiration to chill comes more time to explore your thoughts. Don’t be afraid to pursue something new. If it excites and intrigues you, it’s a good investment that deserves to be followed up on.
Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20):
“Trusting is hard. Knowing who to trust , even harder.” -Maria V. Snyder
All of your relationships may feel in flux at this period of time. As a Pisces, you are a feeler and lead with emotion. Embrace that this month as old relationships may seem to taper and new ones begin to bloom. It’s scary to let people go as it is scary to break down your walls and let new people in. Just follow your gut, seize your sensitivity, and explore all of your connections. It’s good to be cautious, but also don’t let that caution entirely overcome you as it could limit prosperous pursuits.
