Aries(March 21-April 19) Don’t get caught up in other’s vexations, this will only slow you down and prevent you from reaching your goals. This week is all about self-reflection and cleaning up your environment. What changes do you want to see in the world, and how can you make them happen? Are there people in your life that are not supportive or conducive to your goals? Maybe it’s time to let them go!

Taurus(April 20-May 20) Now is the time for you to act! Make moves on what you have been meaning to do for a while. Pay attention to what you need to learn more about so that you can make what you have longed for finally happen. This week is a favorable time for you to network, so don’t miss out on this opportunity!

Gemini(May 21-June 20) In the next few days you may feel like you are finally gaining control over a situation in your home where you felt helpless previously. It’s time to contribute to matters that are important to you, whether that deals with fighting for social issues, focusing on a passion or spending more time with loved ones. If you feel called to make a difference in your community, now is the time to join people you admire and start being the change you wish to see in your environment.

Cancer(June 21-July 22) This is a good time in your life, and this week guarantees good communication. You will be practical and logical when dealing with your desires. You hold the “Triforce” this week, so use it to your advantage and take this time to harness your power, wisdom and courage to conquer the semester a little smoother.

Leo(July 23-August 22) This week may demand a lot of extra work but it will make you advance greatly in your endeavors. These obstacles will make you progress professionally. People are a little more on edge this week, so make you sure you use tact when communicating with others. They may not be as open to your suggestions or criticism and they may even misinterpret your words, so take caution and don’t take it too personally. Now is not a time to procrastinate.  

Virgo(August 23-September 22) It’s time to let go of your toxic relationships and break free from the toxic environment around you. Communication is flowing freely. You are on top of it this week and have left behind last week’s confusions. Enjoy this time of clarity and use it to make things happen!

Libra(September 23-October 22) A lot of issues you have been struggling with will finally start resolving themselves. Of course, you will experience new difficulties but isn’t this part of the fun? This life is all about problem solving. Depending on your perspective, you could see this as a defeat or embrace the challenge of this never ending puzzle. It’s time to build strength and a firm structure, which will lessen the puzzle’s difficulty.

Scorpio(October 23-November 21) This week is all about new friends, new social relationships and new love interests. Saturn retrograde is breaking what was tying you down previously, whether that is self-doubt, a stressful job or a harmful relationship. It’s making room for renewal and change!

Sagittarius(November 22-December 21) You will find new ways to work this week which will make your semester and work life a lot easier. This will allow you to be more productive and reach your goals more rapidly. Be sure not to pass up this opportunity!

Capricorn(December 22-January 19) It is a time for mental expansion. Have you been focused on others flaws lately? Remember that you can focus on others differences just as much as you can focus on each other’s common grounds. Shift your len’s angle to realize that you are not so different than the person next to you. Upon this realization, you will experience tremendous improvements in your home, school and work life.

Aquarius(January 20 to February 18) It’s a busy time for you, Aquarius. You’re in for a surprise this week, and are in-bound more more still, for better or for worse. Try to be more inclusive when it comes to your plans and your friends. Good will come your way if you take these actions.

Pisces(February 19 to March 20) You may be feeling depleted, which means it’s time to rest. Don’t be too hard on yourself and dare to sleep in until 12 pm or longer this weekend. On the brighter side, there is an opportunity for a partnership to become more powerful or you may even form a new relationship. This could be platonic or romantic. It is time to eliminate boundaries and barriers—to get closer to things that are deeper so that you may find deeper friendships.
