Aries (March 21-April 19)
There’s a Full Moon coming in your sign later in the week (Oct 1) and there’s no doubt you’ll feel extra tension from that. You’ll be fine. Before that though, and possibly equally tension filled, is that your ruler Mars is square Saturn. Your absolute best strategy is to be calm, be cool, be collected at all times. Quite possibly your only harmony this week will be that which you make yourself, or using your instrument of choice (including pen & paper). This is a good time for self care in your safe place of choice.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
This could be a frustrating week… okay, fine, this will be a frustrating week. Didn’t want to start off on a low note. You’re really not down with any “new normal” speak, and it’s not that you’re not open to evolving, it’s more that you feel others may be forcing their opinions on you. Like they’re going to decide how you do your thing going forward. But they don’t do, can’t do, have never done what you do, so how can they tell you anything. It’s like that. Look inward Taurus and find new strategies for you. Don’t waste time fighting, just find the “way” that works for you.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Funny that the two of you (those Gemini Twins) who are part of a team (you and them) are finding it hard to work within a group or promote connections in order to work within a group. Almost reverse energy. But it is what it is. The Full Moon isn’t going to make it any better so understand that now; partnerships both personal and business will be challenging later in this week. Instead of trying to do something for everyone (leaving some with less than they need) try going old school. You know, when you do something for yourself first and connect with your own soul. You’ll be inspired to create, you’ll be better, so they, ripple effect, will be better too.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)
There’s a reason that symbolically The Crab, has its own house, and that’s because in solitude you find peace and stability. This is good when you need to rebuild a foundation but not so good if you get caught up in retreating into aloneness because it seems that you’re being blocked no matter which way you turn. Inspiration is lost, and the urge to create has vanished. So yes, this could be the time to reconnect with self, and it is not selfish to do so. It is freeing, it is salvation, it is you protecting your world by protecting yourself.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
You’re usually blinded by the lights that point your way, but, for this week we want you to really pay heed to what is said and done around you, and what you say and do yourself. It’s a generally frustrating week for creative people because it seems that no one is willing to listen, or watch, or believe in what we (you) have imagined. Maybe people in general are just tired of it all, all being… just everything. It’ll pass, not because anything’s been solved or rectified, but because people in general, you Leo, are resilient and the flames of inspirational fires will grow again. This week observe the immediate but dream on the future.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Tensions for you this week Virgo will centre around financial things - residuals, contracts, royalties etc. But more generally it’s just the building energy of a Full Moon in Aries. This occurs on Thursday so things might … blow around then. Agreements = 0. Disagreements = all of it. It’s hard to feel blocked and deal with others who also, in their own way, feel blocked. This in no way resembles a block party. Block parties are fun. Sit back and use your sensible, observant side to get through it and past it before anyone else realizes you’re on the move.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
One of the things about this week is that most everyone is super stressed with the Full Moon energy but a lot of it is undercover as people try to deal with it in their own minds. So not outwardly freaking out but walking a fine line on the edge of an emotional cliff. Yes, as dangerous as it sounds, and more so for you as a peacemaker. Best best advice this week is to stay in your lane (one you pick), do your own thing, get clear about your intentions and directions and work towards them. Let other people work their creative and general differences out for themselves.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
This upcoming Full Moon in Aries will most certainly trigger tensions within you and around you. Negatively this dampens your spirits and you know what happens when you let self-doubt creep in to your projects and visions. Things grind to a halt. You quit on yourself. Maybe only briefly but then you’re pissed off (again at yourself) when you pick it all back up and bitch yourself out for time wasted, wasting time. You feel me on this. Don’t be drawn in to disagreements physically around you even if, or when, something gets thrown right to you. Don’t even throw it back. It’s beneath you and you know your silence frightens them more.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
You feel pushed and pulled in all directions this week, Sag. You don’t like it. It’s uncomfortable. It feels un-winnable. More so because you’re not actually trying to “win” anything, you’re just trying to make it through some tension filled days fuelled by the Full Moon in Aries on Thursday. So what should you do? Be yourself, work on yourself, do whatever you do for yourself when you know you need some personal TLC. Which you do. Trying to make sure everyone else is okay is self-defeating. There’s no need to throw yourself on their fires hoping to arise like some great reborn phoenix. Too dramatic? LOL. Then just roast some smores and relax.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Most everyone’s having a difficult blocked stuck kind of week. Important thing to note here is that this is what it feels like, not necessarily what it actually is. The astral energies are giving everyone a shot of doubt and fearfulness: They keep saying my old normal is gone. What now? What now Capricorn is that you stay true to your course, a course and direction that you chose. A dream that you have dreamt for yourself. A vision of success that is your vision. No one gets to change that, maybe the stage you do it on, but that’s it. Carry on Capricorn and do not ever give up.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
For one as in tune with others as yourself, this week and it’s stressed out energy might be troubling. Well, most likely will be is closer to the truth, so it’s not a matter of negotiating it, it’s one of surviving it emotionally and spiritually intact. Best strategy: do not bare your soul unwittingly. Meaning, do not involve yourself in the passionately charged disagreements of others. If you end up there, get out. Simply that, get out. Great creative inspiration may be found in troubled times and that remains true - use what you encounter without exploitation. Quiet observation is your super power this week.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Geez, money problems again this week: stop already. This time financial confrontations may come disguised in the general stress of the week. And not fuelled by what someone thinks you have over them, more that they haven’t got what they think they deserved. It’s a fine difference but the difference is there. Avoid these conversations if you can. You do not thrive creatively in situations where there is a struggle for power or ownership, or coercion, subjugation, or exploitation… any of those things. This week (and anytime really) if you need to, then remove yourself from the process. Enjoy Love and Support where it rises to meet you.
