Capricorn

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

Make sure you’re taking time to relax, rejoice, and reflect this week. Sometimes the best way to make progress with a difficult problem is to turn away from it and immerse yourself in something lighter and unrelated. You don’t need a singular solution or approach to the things you’re feeling ambitious about. What you need is a sustainable approach and a nuanced set of solutions, my pragmatic friend.

This isn’t the time to be looking outside of yourself for answers. You’ve gone through a lot, and the stage you’re at now requires you to listen to your own self and apply the wisdom you’ve been working so hard to accrue, Aquarius. You don’t need to know what’s coming next to be able to figure out what you need in the here and now. Choose life affirming acts that reflect your values, even in the face of uncertainty, this week.

If you fixate on your fears it will work as a binding spell, bringing you closer to the things you most wish to avoid. Get grounded, get present, and get real. It’s time to embody the changes you’ve been working towards, and the way to do that is by confronting difficult emotions and coping with them head on. Freedom doesn’t mean “good vibes only,” it means having options. Choose to be brave this week, Pisces.

As you push things forward, it’s important to question your motives this week. If you’re allowing scarcity or fear to drive you, it’s possible that your efforts are coming across as defensive, and that can stir up opposition to your efforts. Remember to play, Aries. Don’t forget to infuse your capacity for passion to your responsibilities. Not only will you be more effective, but you’ll feel better, my love.

It’s all about relationships this week. You may be feeling impatient to change things up, but be careful what you ask for, Taurus. This isn’t a good time to test people, because everyone is feeling pretty stressed. Instead, bring your most patient self to your interactions, so that you can truly listen to what others have to say and how they’re feeling. In this way, you can cultivate an aura of peacefulness with others that you can build on through good times and bad.

May 21-June 21

If your ego is maladjusted, you may act defensively when you’re trying to assert yourself out of fear that you don’t actually have the right to advance your goals. Not only will this feel bad to you, but it’s likely to push others away just at the moment when you need their support the most. Look at your approach to your goals, and consider whether the energy that you’re bringing to the table is helping or getting in the way, Twin Star.
