(Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Welcome to your season, Earth babe! You’ve been waiting so patiently for your time, don’t shrink from the spotlight now that it’s here. Your job, right now, is to learn how to enjoy yourself and show up for the things you say you want. So, what do you want? What are you aching to be a part of? What kinds of relationships are you hoping to cultivate? Make your list of wishes and commit fully to the work of staying in your body, clearing your mind, and meeting the universe halfway in creating the exact life you want to live.


(Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Things are getting real weird for you, right now. It may feel like you’re “losing control” or that things are happening to you, but this is exactly where you’re supposed to be. What “realities” are you letting rule your life, or are you investing all of your focus in, that aren’t moving you forward? Where is all of your focus lately? Is it scattered? Is it on what’s wrong instead of what’s going right? It’s time to call your energy back to you and dial in on where you really want to be making progress. Find the support you need to let it happen.


(Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

It’s time to really get out there, Scorpio. Mingling, networking, whatever you want to call it, big ideas and glorious encounters await you in the social side of things. How can you make the things you already have to do into something you can do with others? Work dates, house-cleaning parties, vision-board get-togethers and other communal activities should be at the top of your priority list, this week. These spaces are not just a time for you to have fun, but to also practice being vulnerable, asking for help, and offering it to others. Now’s the time.



(Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is an exciting time for you, as the planets file into your house of social position and success. The only thing that will get in the way of you fully reaping the rewards of this time is concerning yourself with a bunch of busy work. What are you currently giving your time and attention to that won’t have big pay-off? Where are the mega-opportunities and why are you shying away from them? Get real with yourself about what you’re fussing about in order to distract yourself from the uncertainty of taking real risks. It’s time to just go for it.


(Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Your sister earth sign, Virgo, is trying to push you and your limits. When was the last time you fully stepped out of your comfort zone? And what did you learn about yourself and the world by doing so? This is the time to, once again, put yourself in situations that challenge you-who you are, what you know, and what you think you’re capable of. Make a plan for how you’re going to push yourself and some ways the people in your life can hold you accountable to it. You’re on the brink of a breakthrough, Capricorn. Let this be the final thing to push you through.


(Jan. 20-Feb.18)

Some people, scenarios, etc, from your past may resurface, right now. What this “means” is up to you, and which explanation you reach for first will show you where you’re at in your growth. When you hear the term “the past” what immediate feelings flood your body? Why? Is this the relationship you want to have with that time in your life? If not, use this week to work on it so that you can continue to flourish without pause or hesitation


(Feb.19-March 20)

Who you are, how much money you aspire to make, what you talk about and focus on, are all heavily impacted by who you surround yourself with. If you think about the kind of people you have in your life and list the major qualities of them all, what kinds of ideas and aspirations are you soaking in? Does this feel reflective of where you want to go? If not, what is keeping you tied to these connections? Use this information to help you figure out what relationships you’ll continue to feed, and where you may need to take space or have some honest conversations.


(March 21-April 19)

You’ve got a tough constitution and your body can take a lot, but if you don’t start paying better attention to what it truly needs to keep going, you run the risk of burnout. Try to practice your own version of intuitive eating and exercise, right now; stop to get quiet and tune into what your body needs in a given moment, rather than just following what your brain thinks you want. Attempt to follow these bodily requests without question for at least a few days for a full reset. You can go back to beastmode once you’ve got your nutrients right, again.


(April 20-May 20)

This is your time to get spicy and sexual, Taurus. People are always attracted to you and your energy, but it’s time for you to find what attracts you to others, what you find lovely and enticing about yourself, and how you want to celebrate that. Make this play with pleasure a priority. Avoid creating pre-determined destinations or involving people who will ask for them in your practice. It’s all about feeling embodied, safe, and free.



(May 21-June 21)

When was the last time you “nested”? When you slowed down and settled into somewhere or something? You sometimes spend a lot of time in your mind or in the past or future and forget that life is actually a continuous process of living in the exact moment you’re in. How can you drop down and take root in exactly where you are in your life now, and love and cherish it just as much as you do your dreams for the future? This is your job, right now.



(June 22-July 22)

Organization and structure are what will enable you to really thrive, right now. You have lots of ideas and thoughts about how to make things bigger and better, but if you don’t have a solid foundation of containers to make everything stable, your dreams may stay in dreamworld, or collapse soon after they materialize. Test the strength of your structures, right now, and add some new ones to the mix to test out and see how they can support you. You’re on the right track, just mind your details.



(July 23-Aug. 22)

As things move to your second house, The focus is on how you tend to the resources you have. How can you take full advantage of the opportunities at your fingertips? What are those opportunities, exactly? What are you hoping they can support or contribute to that you’ve already cultivated? Your season is over but your year is just getting started. Act like this is the new year that it is and grab the possibilities in front of you with all you’ve got.
