We are pleased to announce that we’ve teamed up with one of our favorite astrologists (and talented yoga pro), Chani Nicholas, to bring you weekly horoscope readings. Check back each Monday to see what’s in the stars for your week!
Aries and Aries Rising- Don’t be confused, or should I say don’t have confusion as your default mode. There are a lot of things in your life that need to disintegrate, scatter and be diffused. Unfortunately this can feel very unnerving at times, like you are losing control of all the things your ever tried to be certain of. Fear not and remember that nothing that fades has any true value-it’s the soul of the thing that counts. By the looks of your chart you are under construction, a soul rejuvenation if you will. This is a time for you to value the essence of your spirit, acknowledge your inner — life and get a little closer to its depth, its wisdom and its courage.
Taurus and Taurus Rising- I would not be at all surprised if this week brings many ex-lovers, old friends and long lost archenemies to the foreground. There is an air of review in your chart and if one thing is for sure you are about to review the effects of many a relationship. Sometimes I like to wonder what life would have been like if I had not met so-and-so, if I had not dated such-in-such. When reviewing life it’s easy to understand the connections, the patterns and the synchronicities that are near impossible to see in the moment. I’d like you to carry with you the inkling that everyone you meet right now is integrity involved in fulfilling a very important aspect of your destiny. Pay close attention to who shows up this week, especially on Thursday. Like we have been discussing-do not be shy about accepting help and teaming up with others. Now is the time to recite this mantra, “People are my greatest resource.” (Thank you, Yon Styles).
Gemini and Gemini Rising- Monday highlights some sort of work/home situation, Tuesday has you re-working an issue in your career or clearing up a miscommunication from a couple weeks ago, Wednesday has you feeling on the more vulnerable side of things publicly, Thursday has you in a unique position to be everything to everyone (as an astrologer once said to me, “A little projection never hurt anyone’s career.”) and Friday has you building with ease. Thank Goddess Saturday and Sunday are a bit of a break. Simply put, Gemini, this is your time to shine and to shine brightly. Please hesitate less and flirt more. Do not get lost in confusion; in fact rebel from trying to do anything in any kind of linear fashion that could make “sense”.
Cancer and Cancer Rising- Listen, if haven’t heard me say this yet, here it is: LET YOURSELF OUT OF THE BOX! The box is self imposed, enforced by society (or your interpretation of it) for sure, but if you could really understand the kind of energy coalescing around you now, you could burst out of it like you were Kelly or Michelle at the half-time show (but with more verve). I know that you may not know the way out and that it can be ever so tempting to remain within known territory-but that’s simply not helpful at this stage of your evolution. Writer P.C. Hodgell once wrote, “That which can be destroyed by the truth should be.” Dare to risk your comfort for your freedom.
Leo and Leo Rising- There is something almost mystical, perhaps even alchemical happening in your life right now. I want to advise you to be unafraid of mixing the tasteful with the distasteful, the raw with the cooked and sacred with the profane. The depth of experience that you are after right now requires a strong stomach and a sturdy digestion. Your life is requiring you to look at all the ways in which you are connected to others and there seems to be more than one opportunity this week to join forces with someone else to further your business, romantic life and/or knowledge about intimacy. The universe is asking you to be brave, bold and decisive-even if you aren’t quite sure what the right thing to do is. Fake it till you make it and play for keeps.
Virgo and Virgo Rising- This week starts off with a full moon in your sign. POW! The weekend may have been a little emotionally edgy because of the moons waxing to fullness but Monday should have you on blast a little more than usual. In fact it seems that this is the time when many folks would like to get a little piece of the action that is swirling around you. You are on the irresistible side of life at the moment, which may feel unnerving to you but please, go with it!! If you could bottle the essence that you are giving off right now you would be a bizillionaire. I know it’s a little against your nature but take a page from your fellow Virgo Queen, Beyonce and joyously shake what your mamma gave you!
Libra and Libra Rising- There may be a step or two you need to retrace, a conversation at work that needs cleaning up or an adjustment you need to make in your health regiment. I would pay close attention to how you are treating your body right now and the ways in which it’s responding. We have been talking recently about your drive and your ability to accomplish a great many things, this is all true but the rules have switched up a little and it’s now more of a two steps forward, one step back kind of game. Take it in stride and focus on maintaining good relationships with all those that surround you at work. It feels like you are learning how to build an empire right now, stay on course and be sturdy in your step.
Scorpio and Scorpio Rising- Don’t retract or withdraw in sulky despair, please! There is far too much going on for you that is juicy and just. This climate is really good for you if you can get over the urge to destroy whatever is not to your liking. Feeling a tad insecure may be part of this astrology, but on the other hand there is so much life affirming energy for you to dive into, interact with and truly explore that I would hate for you to get hung up on what isn’t happening. Please, focus on was is happening and so many gifts are awaiting you, trust.
Sagittarius and Sagittarius Rising- When it’s good at home, it’s good everywhere. There are details that need to be tended to in the coming weeks in regards to your physical environment and possible a review of what it means to come home (insert childhood trauma here), but all in all this should be a sweet time for you in your private life. I say “should”-not because this is what you ought to be experiencing-but because it is a potential and possibly, an ideal to have in mind. Finding a place to settle into and call one’s own isn’t the easiest of ventures for many. This time could have some of you in a wee bit of a panic and in a smidge of discomfort, not because you are incapable of feeling grounded but because the material associated with “home” is a little nuclear in its reactivity. Either way my wish for you is that this fleeting season brings you and eventual sense of peace with your past and with your present.
Capricorn and Capricorn Rising- The conversation ranges from heated to inspired this week and there may be many ways in which your patience is tested and your self-delusions exposed. There is no better time than now to speak from your heart and in order to do this you’ll have to apply the Capricorn talent of finding some alone time. Meditation is a simple and short way to attain this and I would challenge you to try it everyday for the next three weeks. I would like you to be ever more mindful of what you say, why you say it and whom you say it to. This is a great time for exposing self-defeating passive aggressive tendencies and cleaning them up with a great amount of compassion.
Aquarius and Aquarius Rising- When I look at your chart I get the feeling that you are looking into many different mirrors. Some are smoky, some rose tinted; some fun house, some cracked and some are true reflections of your potentials. The issue is to know which you are gazing into at any given time and not to get too lost in your reflection-for better or worse. There is some good money-making mojo around you now and I would love you to be able to harness it, however at the same time a transit (Mercury retrograde) could make getting paid a little complicated. Do yourself a favor and be really diligent about billing your clients, employers and associates. Keep finances up to date and use the next three weeks to clean up any lingering financial issues. It will make you feel better about yourself and you’ll be able to see a clearer reflection of who you are in the world.
Pisces and Pisces Rising- You are increasingly sliding ever deeper into your own skin as the planets keep meandering into your sign. Love you must right now, as the Goddess of Amore, Venus, is with you for the next few weeks. This can only mean one thing: Relationships. Mostly the energy is centered on the relationship you have to yourself and the one that you show to the world; your self-image. There is some sort of re-invention your self-image is going through and I would use this time to shed all the parts of your life that feel inauthentic. These parts aren’t good or bad; they just don’t completely fit you anymore. Let them go with a blessing and a kiss and make room for the 2.0 version of you.
