There is a lot going on in the world, and just as much is happening with the cosmic forces that oversee it. This week may reveal a lot, and not all of what we’ll see is pretty.
The Sun square Uranus is shedding light on our very humanity. As Venus trines Uranus, we see beauty in the faces of the oppressed and disenfranchised. Jupiter’s square with Mercury warns us not to jump to hasty conclusions or act without the whole story.
At a time like this, it’s important not take the words of the powerful at face value. We must all do our due diligence. The planets enhance our stubbornness and resolve this week, so that should help because sticking to the facts and learning the truth requires persistence.
In all, this week is begging us to contemplate how we wish the world to be and what we can do to make it better.
March 21 – April 19
You have a fire and passion that will guide you to a worthy cause. Speak truth to power, and let your anger be a tool this week. Channel it into something great.
April 20 – May 20
You’re able to create beautiful things, and the world needs beauty and truth right now. Work is a virtue. Take this week to create from the depths of your soul.
May 21 – June 20
Everything feels like an uphill battle right now, and self-reliance is the rule of the week. What are you able to accomplish — just you alone?
June 21 – July 22
What new journeys will you set upon this year? This is the week to contemplate them. Meanwhile, the space around you will determine who you become. Is it serving you?
July 23 – Aug. 22
A lethargic lion doesn’t make a good hunter. All your contemplation of future needs is robbing you of your present. Sleepless nights are of no use. Rest, dear lion.
Aug. 23 – Sept. 22
Learn to let go, Virgo. Look up the “sunk cost fallacy” and accept that some things end in a loss. That sucks, but it’s worse to keep losing when you could just walk away.
Sept. 23 – Oct. 22
The world can be an ugly place, but don’t let that put you into a state of dysphoria. What you see depends on where you’re looking. Celebrate the beautiful whenever you can.
Oct. 23 – Nov. 21
Some people can’t handle the truth, and some just don’t deserve it. Before you offer it, ask yourself: “Is this to help them, or is this for me?” If it’s just for you, close your big mouth.
Nov. 22 – Dec. 21
Boundaries and determination can take you to great heights. If you have a goal, set firm boundaries with anything and anyone that might keep you from moving forward.
Dec. 22 – Jan. 19
A subtle change may be turning into something more right before your eyes. Don’t rest on your laurels; changes aren’t always for the better. Learn, improve, and keep moving.
Jan. 20 – Feb. 18
Consider that the way you think about the world isn’t completely accurate. “The map is not the territory” should be your motto for the week. Experience outweighs theory.
Feb. 19 – March 20
Hasty choices are the enemy of growth for you this week. Think through your actions before you make decisions. You may need to wait things out. Give yourself time to breathe.
