The eclipse saga continues this week as we integrate and buzz off of the intense energy of last week. Even though the eclipse has passed us, it is so necessary now to continue to up the self-care ante and put aside time for deep reflection and kindness for yourself and others. If you express yourself through witchcraft and ritual, this is a great time to practice!
Also making news, Venus and Chiron are conjunct the South Node in Pisces, creating a harmonic doorway to really understand and heal sadness and other negative emotions from the past. Use affirmations, creativity and self-expression as a healing connection to any unpleasant past memories or thought patterns.
Venus invites us to embrace and love the wounded parts of ourselves that Chiron brings to the surface. The energies at play are conspiring to show you lessons that you need to learn in a beautiful and powerful way, so that you can better express yourself and your voice can become clearer and more powerful than ever before.
This week is also allows us to pour love and inspiration to the parts of ourselves that truly need it. It is an intense energy, so of course put aside plenty of time for yourself, but also allow yourself to be there for others.
The South Node also invited the past up for recollection, so expect your inbox to be buzzing with texts or emails from old partners, romantic interests or friends out of the blue. Accept whatever makes you feel safe and lovingly reject anything that does not. Gently allow lessons from the past to be recognized and understood, but don’t dwell on them. Be proud of how far you’ve come and continue to strategize moves in a positive direction.
This is the last introspective lull in the stars for a while. In April and May we will have a chance to really use the lessons we’ve learned the past few weeks as tools in our daily lives, when our social lives start to kick into high gear once more! Use this week to solidify your lessons and move on!
Happy continued birthday, Aries! This week is all about strategy. Now is the time to start your to-do lists and plan for the next phase of your work and/or creative life. Last week gave you a good idea of where you wanted to go. Now it is all about putting those ideas into a plan that can yield action and positive results.
Recognize and honor yourself for all the shit you’ve been through, Taurus. Celebrate your powers of survival this week and use this time to wear the shit you’ve been through as a true sign that you are a powerful, resilient human being and you can do anything you set your mind to.
Allow yourself to feel all the feels this week, Gemini. Don’t put any judgement on what the voices in your head are telling you. Notice what you love and what you don’t, what makes you happy and what makes you feel icky. Work on creating new structures around what and who makes you feel good and worthy this week.
Jupiter and Saturn are restructuring everything, Cancer. Stay close to home and go with the flow. It is so important for you to dream big this week and work with positive affirmations, especially around career and money. Repeat to yourself, “abundance comes freely into my life now” and “I am worthy of my ideal life, I am ready to live my dreams” If you do this enough times, and really believe it, see it and feel it, it will come true.
Leo, you are bursting with passion and attitude this week! A word of caution: think twice before you take a romance too far. Your physicality will be running rampant this week and you could definitely use a second opinion before you react. Stay grounded, use essential oils, yoga and grounding meditations to transmute that wild Leo energy into unbridled creative fire.
This week, Virgo, I challenge you to understand the deep-seated thought patterns behind your reactions, especially those that stem from anger and frustration. These negative feelings come from a deeper emotional picture that is really worth investigating with open and loving eyes and ears this week. Understand where the frustration is really coming from and allow yourself to be wrong. It’s OK. You are perfect, no matter what.
Now is the time to weed out people in your social circle that are sucking you dry, stirring negative energy or are just plain draining. It’s time you have a frank convo with yourself about the choices you have made and why you’ve made them. Not just regarding friends, but all relationships. Your life is yours to create; you just have to decide what actually makes you feel good physically and emotionally and in all parts of your life.
This week you have a powerful chance to get really real about your finances. A drastic, bold move could take you right where you need to be, Scorpio. Don’t forget that money is energy — and it’s a reflection of how you feel about yourself. You know you deserve the funds you wish to see in your bank account, and this week the stars are aligned to give you what you want, if you believe in yourself.
With Mars about to go retrograde in your sign, you could be feeling wonky or unable to make things happen this week. Use the energy to match the outer to the inner. Are your goals and priorities a reflection of who you really are and what you really want? These are the questions to ask this week and and in the upcoming weeks as well.
This week, allow your fears a place at the table, Capricorn, but don’t make fear the guest of honor. Lovingly embrace the lessons and helpful warnings your fear may be trying to provide, but do not let it overtake your mind and or life. Know when to listen to your fears and make healthy moves for yourself and others without letting fear rule your thoughts and actions.
Your social life is about to level up, Aquarius. Take these final moments of energetic integration after the eclipse to really solidify who you are and who you want to be in the public eye. You’re about to get a lot of attention, so make every thought, word and bit of eye contact count.
Venus and the South Node in your sign might be making your finger itchy on the trigger — for texting exes or crying over romances of yesteryear. Think twice before you hit send, Pisces. Take the lessons but leave the nostalgia. Accept the past for what it is and keep your eyes looking forward. Continue the self-care and be gentle with yourself and others.
