Cosmic Candy: March 18 – 24
March 18, 2013 10:00 am Posted in Lifestyle
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- I have an image of you rising out of the waters like a modern day Aphrodite or Lakshmi, a fully formed Goddess with an edge. There is a new quality to you right now, but it’s not soft and serene like a newborn; it’s something a little more rock-n-roll, dangerous even. Perhaps after a very introspective and quiet winter season you are ready to bring to light some new vision, understanding or project and you care even less than you usually do about what others may think of you. Go with this energy but be weary of burning bridges or doing something just because you can. Have integrity, vision and foresight and your actions this week will carry you far into the spring.
Taurus and Taurus Rising- I would start turning your awareness inward for your answers. It’s been a tremendously social time for you lately with a lot of your attention on the outer world. It looks as though something is going on behind the scenes that you can’t quite see but can feel. Start paying closer attention to your dreams and hunches, especially towards the end of the week as they may give you insight to something you can’t quite put your finger on but need to be aware of. The other side of this is that you are becoming increasingly more aware of how thin the veils are between this world and all the others. This is good information for you to utilize by asking for help from the other side as the spring heats up and things get a little dicey. It may be a little shocking to see just how out of your control life really is, but isn’t that also so freeing?
Gemini and Gemini Rising- The emphasis in you life is shifting to incorporate lessons on playing well with others, or learning how to deal with conflict when that isn’t an option. We are moving into a season of exposing relationship dynamics, but also a season that can tend to aggravate our tender spots and wounded places; therefore proceed with energetic padding. Think invisible capes and Matrix-like moves for dodging oncoming obstacles. A way to work this energy positively is to enter into new social circles, get outside your usual community and make room for a different folks, exciting visions and inventive communities. You are still working things out on the career front so please stay patient, as this week is sure to reveal some information that you were not aware of.
Cancer and Cancer Rising- Exposure my dear, exposure. Not the most comfortable for many of your tribe-instinctually you protect by withdrawing- but there is some part of your spirit that is in need of a coming out party. An outwardly rebellious nature is ruling your chart right now and there is either the temptation to buck the system or change your work or status. Any of this is good, but just keep in mind that it’s more about you finding your individuality than it is about rejecting something. There are many ways to experience freedom without losing your footing.
Leo and Leo Rising- This week looks like it has the ability to shake up some of your core beliefs though it’s a little less disturbing and a little more freeing-like being let out of a cocoon that you had outgrown. The universe is lovingly pushing you out into a formidable playground where you are being asked to play the risky game of Life. Look, the thing about this year is that absolutely nothing is secure, stable or boring. Everything is up for grabs and this week’s astrology kicks off a fairly wild spring-the more you can let your ideas about life, love and truth be reinvented the happier you will be. You don’t know what you think you do, but you can know that you don’t.
Virgo and Virgo Rising- There is something you are going to need to let go of this week and it’s most likely going to be something you are not going to want to release or something that you are unconsciously carrying-like an inheritance. We are often dragging around and living out family patterns unconsciously making our loved ones and ourselves miserable in the process. This week could help to set you free of one or many such patterns by means of illuminating them. Therefore if you try to fix everything too quickly you won’t actually receive the benefits of this transit. If you can let things get a little ugly then some historical toxicity can actually rise to the surface and be restored to it’s original medicinal state.
Libra and Libra Rising- So the planetary emphasis is moving from your work to your relationships, which normally is great news for you, however…. The end of this week seems to bring some sort of clash and/or disagreement for you to tend to. The thing to be mindful about is your reaction to it and your tendencies. Do you seek out approval and peace at all cost? Do you manipulate others or situations to get out of dealing with deeper issues in relationships? Can you stand in conflict or disagreement and not leave yourself or turn a blind eye to another’s others point of view? Can you move beyond the fear of missing out on one option and choose the other?
Scorpio and Scorpio Rising- You are probably feeling a type of call to duty right now. The tone has shifted and life is asking you to go underground for a moment and tend to some earthly matters. Your health, work and daily routines are of paramount importance and you will get to experience just how anchored (or not) you are by your regiments. This is an important area of life to cultivate in order to sustain the creative ground that you have gained recently; without health we have no desire or energy to bring new life forth. Without a work environment that supports exploration and growth we end up feeling like indentured servants, and this week’s astrology wants you to free yourself of all things that inhibit your growth. This week isn’t about comfort, but it is about invention-so whether you need to reinvent your health or your work I would get on it as soon as possible.
Sagittarius and Sagittarius Rising- It’s time for you to discover a new way to have fun. I want you to be a joy inventor, a play pioneer and a courageous scientist on a mission to revolutionize your passion for life. As long as you are safe about it, I want you to experience as much joy as you possibly can this week. Short of doing anything irresponsible or dangerous, (especially on Friday) I am calling you all to let your hair down and your freak flags fly. The reason why I am advising that you do this responsibly (apart from wanting you to take care of yourself) is because as you experiment and play you are creating something that is real. I want you to both be mindful about what you bring into form and bear witness to how powerful a creator you are.
Capricorn and Capricorn Rising- This week has you feeling like the tectonic plates of your foundation are shifting. This creates the perfect environment to bring up old childhood memories, specifically on Friday. This event could send you temporarily reeling and reverting to some of your long forgotten past patterns. The good news is that you are no longer a child, and therefore those dynamics can’t have the same kind of power over you that they used to. In fact that is the message of this week; it’s time to break away from the ties that bind you to the unskillful behaviors of your family. Be brave enough to find your adult voice and see just how far you have come. If you can remind yourself to stay present and conscious I think you will find a tremendous amount of freedom from things that have held you for far too long.
Aquarius and Aquarius Rising- A million thoughts are buzzing around your mind like bees at the hive, loaded down with pollen and ready to contribute their well-earned findings. Everything in you is teaming, scheming, igniting and delighting in the new or could be if you let yourself be. I have no doubt that this week will be busier than recent ones because you are being asked to move in many different directions at the same time. However, instead of wasting all of your energy moving for the sake of not standing still, how about you use this energy to problem solve? All of this inventive, creative brilliance you are channeling should not be wasted on arguing with siblings, gossiping with neighbors or being angry about parking tickets. See life through the eyes of a beginner and I promise you will see possibilities that no one else can.
Pisces and Pisces Rising- There has been such a flood of Pisces energy lately that I would not be surprised if you are feeling realigned. Whatever was up in the air, unfinished and free floating is now starting to consolidate and take form but I want you to stay away from any fixed ideas of what this could look like. This week is asking you to be very open to change, especially in terms of money and it’s relationship to your self-worth. This week may bring some money or take some money-I can’t predict which but what I want you to focus on is trusting that you’ll be OK either way. Know your own value and proceed as though everything has already worked out perfectly.
