    The current cosmic conditions mirror the ongoing intensification of the unfolding Earth drama. A seemingly chaotic cauldron of caustic elements is triggering our vulnerability, both individually and collectively, and pushing us to deeply and immediately contemplate what survival requires of us.

    ARIES (March 21–April 19)

    Your anxiety has been amped up in recent months, but you were born for this moment. Always the warrior, you have an impulse to win. However, try to see yourself in your enemies now in order to heal the gaping divide.

    TAURUS (April 20–May 20)

    Your fears can be mitigated by paying attention to the details of your life. Channel your energy into creating order, beauty, and harmony in your immediate surroundings.

    GEMINI (May 21–June 20)

    Give yourself permission to enjoy some simple pleasures. From this relaxed, rejuvenated state, a well of creativity bubbles forth a message for the masses. Your brilliant mind has a story to tell that is an essential piece of this giant puzzle.

    CANCER (June 21–July 22)

    Let “peace within” be your mantra now. As you cultivate diplomacy at home, and balance in your being, you’re better equipped to fight for justice in the world around you.

    LEO (July 23–August 22)

    A portal opens for you to see more possibility for harmonious interactions with those around you. It’s a good time to bridge gaps with people who might think differently than you, and to connect via your commonalities.

    VIRGO (August 23–September 22)

    Your gifts of tact and diplomacy are highlighted now, and people will buy what you’re offering. You have a tendency to doubt yourself, but currently the planets encourage you to take action to increase your earning power. Stay steady.

    LIBRA (September 23–October 22)

    Happy birthday, Libra! As you are one who is usually thinking of others, it’s okay to put yourself first now. Relationships will trigger useful conflict, which if used rightly can push you to give birth to a whole new you. Establish healthy boundaries. 

    SCORPIO (October 23–November 21)

    You are not one to trust easily, so meditation, contemplation, and spiritual rituals can help ground you now. Let your grief and suffering crack you open to access an inner power that has been lying dormant until now. 

    SAGITTARIUS (November 22–December 21)

    The world needs your optimistic light, and social justice causes beckon you. As your own values have been shapeshifting this year, the circles you give your time and talent to must change accordingly. 

    CAPRICORN (December 22–January 19)

    If anyone has undergone an overhaul this year it’s you, Cap. As such, be sure you are taking solo time to suss out your next most authentic moves. Your mission has likely changed to be more aligned with the new, as-yet-unfolding you.

    AQUARIUS (January 20–February 18)

    Your passionate opinions could crack some eggs now. While you have much genius to offer the world at this time, you’ll be most helpful as you tailor your views to unite people rather than divide further. 

    PISCES (February 19–March 20)

    Partnership can, and must, support your personal values as well as your mission. Your mission must make use of your gifts of healing, imagination, and spiritual awareness, which are all ripe and ready to pour forth through you into the world.
