The Rumblr’s in-house astrologer, Madame Clairevoyant, presents her latest dispatch from the stars:
Aries: This week, after you’ve fed yourself and taken a nap and paid your rent, use all the energy left over for watching the way your take up space in the world, for being gentle with the people around you, for being as generous as you can with your good thoughts. It’s a week for listening and doing favors and sharing everything you can. It’s a week for cultivating feelings of kindness in your own heart, for tending to them carefully, for watching them grow in your heart like a garden, like a field, like a forest.
Taurus: This week is for working hard, at your job or on your art or on shaping your own small part world into a place that can sustain you, into a place where you can live. There are weeks for dreaming and there are weeks for laughing and there are weeks for running away, but this week it will be good if you can look all difficult things straight in the eye, it will be good if you can keep working, it will be good if you can keep moving and keep trying until you’re sweaty and tired and happier than you were before.
Gemini: This week, when the world feels rough, when the sky feels heavy, keep your secrets, speak in codes, move in ways that are unreadable and unpredictable and confounding to every force in this world that would hem you in. This is a week for following the weird, unknowable, electric rhythms beating in your chest, this week is for doing things exactly how you want, this week is for growing strong and for defying logic. Fill your house with colors or sing to yourself; eat foods you’ve never even seen before; leave town until you’re ready to come back.
Cancer: This is a week for being as generous as you can manage, a week for sharing your stories, a week for sharing your good feelings, a week for believing in other people. This week, you’re going to be lucky; this week, it’s going to feel easy to be a little more kind than you normally are. This week, you can be gentle without even trying. It’ll make your life better, more open, more sweet. Drive around with your friends, drive around with the windows down, drive around with Rilo Kiley on the radio.
Leo: This week, your desires are going to move you and they’re going call to you, like a song in your head, like a motor in your chest. This is a week for claiming them, for holding onto them and facing up to their wild powerful force. Don’t let them take over your entire life but try, this week, to make peace with the desires that won’t let you go and the ones that will not not let themselves be made quiet. Try to make peace with the dreams that will keep calling out to you until you look at them, until you call them by their names.
Virgo: This week is a week to live in very small moments, it’s a week for living in the smallest units of feeling you can find, in smells or tastes or moments of warmth on your skin. Try to let your plans rest, for a little, try to stop looking out for the future, try to slow your insides down, for now. Take a bath, eat an orange, listen to a sad song played on the piano, listen to your best friend’s voice. Let your smallest moments sing you to sleep, let them carry you home, let them make your world livable.
Libra: This is a week for indulging in all of your weird curiosity, it’s a week for seeing as much of your world as you can, it’s a week for going out and moving through your town. This week, the world has strange and beautiful things to show in the concrete of your sidewalk, in the clouds, in your friends’ bright faces. This week, let your curiosity live, let it grow strong and wild, let it run in wide loops and circles through your life; it’s the thing that can make your world bearable, the thing that can help you live.
Scorpio: This is a week for looking north, for looking to the stars or the trail markers or the quiet faded maps in your heart. It’s a week for checking in, a week for getting your bearings, a week for figuring out your path. Trust the maps that you carry inside you, trust the things your eyes show you on the paths ahead. Trust that your imagination can show you how to reach the shining futures you’re looking for, trust that your feet can carry you there. Spend your days walking, spend your days searching, spend your days figuring your own truths out.
Sagittarius: This week, listen for rhythms and listen for songs and watch for doors opening up before you. Spend your days the way you want, as much as you can. Spend your days walking, spend your days dreaming, spend your days imagining new ways to move, new ways to speak, new ways to live. Let your dreams open up wide and let them carry you. This is a soft week, it’s a rare week, it’s a week where the things you dream up can change the way you live, can change the whole rest of your life.
Capricorn: This week, all the electricity of the world is going to move in strange and unexpected patterns and it’s going to shake things loose inside of you, weird feelings and dreams and small bright shards of bravery. Hold onto every moment that makes you feel less afraid, this week, hold onto the moments that let you feel in new ways, hold onto the moments that ask you to shift and take risks and become someone who is bolder and weirder and made of strange kinds of magic. Talk to strangers, listen to loud songs.
Aquarius: Even when it’s cold in your house, even when it’s dark at night, even when it’s hard to even walk outside for how strange and wild the world is, this is a week for standing up for yourself. It’s a week for shouting, it’s a week for believing in yourself in fierce and serious ways. This is a week for staking out a space in the world where you can live, a space where you can feel okay, a space where the air is easy to breathe. Clean your kitchen this week, clean your room, clean your windows and watch the bright sunlight streaming in.
Pisces: This is a week for forgetting, as much as you can, the things that make you worry, for forgetting about the heavy weird feelings that sit in your stomach, for not even thinking about the things you’re supposed to do. This is a week for doing the small simple things for yourself that make you feel good. Read books about love or books about outer space or books about magical powers. Read gentle poems. Listen to the pop songs that make your insides feel safe and warm, listen to the pop songs that make you want to dance.
