The Rumblr’s in-house astrologer, Madame Clairevoyant, presents her latest dispatch from the stars:
Aries: This week, try to keep things simple, try to keep things solid, try to let your head stay focused, directed, fixed on a sweet shining place somewhere out in front of you, on a vision. This week you can be tireless, you cannot be distracted by anything, not by boredom, not by love, not by the quiet turmoil in your head. It’s a good week for work and a good week for building the future. Don’t forget to come up for air, don’t forget the sweet night outside your window, don’t forget to call your parents.
Taurus: This week, even in the smallest moments, even when things are so mundane, keep yourself open, be alert, feel your skin tingle. This week, if you let your body tune itself to different frequencies, if you let your mind go a little wobbly, a little loose, you will hear your ghosts speaking to you, your ancestors speaking to you, through you, into being, even now. This can feel silly, it can feel weird, it can feel like a shock, but if you listen, if you ask, the past can teach you what you need to know, it can show you how to survive.
Gemini: This week, when you’re stuck on the bus, when you’re running late, when you’re distracted by your own weird thoughts, when you’re alone in your room staring up at the ceiling in the yellow evening light: try to be kind as you can manage. This week, with yourself and with your family and with the friends you never even see, try to be good and try to be as generous with your love as it’s safe for you to be, and maybe even a little more. Let yourself open up like a plant, like a window. Let yourself care as much as you can.
Cancer: This week will seem, maybe, like everything you can see is moving without any kind of pattern, without rhythm, without frames and structures you can hold on when things get weird. This week’s going to seem filled with a deep swirling chaos, it’s going to seem fast and wild. Try not to feel too scared, try not to feel weird. Try to go with it, try to believe that there are patterns and the pictures and rhythms that are still unclear but that are waiting, ready catch you and ready to hold you.
Leo: This is a week for taking walks, for going on runs, for going swimming, for playing soccer in the park with your friends. It’s a week for moving your body in lines and loops, for letting your thoughts speak through your eyes and your hands and your feet, for letting your weird feelings live in every inch of your body, for letting them move you. It’s a week for giant laughs that shake your whole body and it’s a week for crying over every single thing that even touches you. Living like this can tire you out, it can electrify you, it can make you feel whole.
Virgo: This week’s going to be calm, it’s going to be happy, it’s going to be a little lazy—if you want it to be, if you’re lucky. This week, as the nights get cool and the moon gets bright, feel the sharp edges of sadness and stress wear down, a little. Feel the ground around you flatten, a little, feel your path get a little smoother. Watch the air around you get clear and you’ll be able to see for miles, all the way to the end of the road, all the way home.
Libra: This is a week for going to the beach and going to the pool and taking long warm baths. This is a week for living like your whole body is water. It’s a week for staring into oceans and lakes and faucets, for watching water swirl down the drain. This week, let your thoughts go clear, let your dreams go blue, let them all fill with salt, let them flow down mountains, let them flow to the sea. It’s a week for being loose, it’s a week for being in motion, it’s a week for being wiser and weirder than you can be on solid ground.
Scorpio: This is a week for taking things on faith, for believing in people, for moving forward even in conditions of strangeness and doubt. It’s a week for sending letters, for sending every kind thought you have, even if you don’t know that they’ll get there, even if you don’t know that they’ll be seen. It’s a week for waiting, it’s a week for hoping, even for things that seem so far away. Go to work and clean your house and get lots of sleep and keep working, keep trying, keep believing in the good things that coming to you.
Sagittarius: Spend this week dreaming about mountains, about big skies, about thunderclouds, about nights so dense they could make you disappear. Spend this week dreaming about the longest roads, about oceans, about things that are vast and deep and old. Spend this week letting your small self grow large, letting yourself blossom, letting your head feel like a cave, letting your body feel like a forest. Think about connectedness this week and try, in all your goodness or your weirdness or your own vast unknowable depths, to be worthy of the whole huge world.
Capricorn: This week is going to welcome you with such open arms, this week’s going to open all the doors and windows and air the world out for you, this week’s going to feel fresh and cool and sweet. Move through the air like the whole world belongs to you, move through your streets like you’re a guest, thoughtful and grateful and kind. When you step outside each morning, notice the way you’re welcomed by cool air, shadows, by the smells of trees or rain or your neighbors’ cooking. Notice the space your world makes for you; make it your own.
Aquarius: This week is for places that are green and places that are brown and places that smell like mud. It’s a week for spending time in places where sunlight filters through clouds, through branches, through fire escapes, to touch you with some kind of bright and earthly gentleness. It’s a week for digging, for getting your hands dirty, for doing what you can to get connected. It’s a week for working to get rooted, to get close to the ground, to get close to the secrets of the whole green world that you live inside and the weird bright world that lives in you.
Pisces: This is a week, if you need it to be, for making scary choices and weird emotional gambles. This week is a good one for aiming high and taking weird risks, it’s a week for betting everything you have on love, on clear happy afternoons, on nothing but a belief that everything’s going to be okay. It’s still a wobbly risky world, but this is a week for looking loss right in the eye and daring it to touch you. This week all the luck in the world is on your side. Take it. Be wildly and fully alive.
