Rest Up For What’s Ahead


A waning Moon passes through the final three Houses of Zodiac this week: the 10th and 11th Houses of Social Status, respectively, as well as the 12th House of Self Undoing. Each House governs wide-ranging, broad aspects of daily life. The Moon’s energy and motivation decreases, which signals a need to rest, reevaluate, and recalibrate. 

The end of Libra season is approaching as the Sun crosses into the 2nd House of Value in Scorpio. This new position will put the Sun in a weeks-long opposition with Uranus retrograde in Scorpio’s ruling 8th House of Reincarnation. This cosmic line-up promotes inner revolution and external transformation. 

How is your sign doing this week?

It is a fallacy to believe that following your intuition will bring only positive results. Sometimes, the road that we feel compelled on is not always smooth. Coming up on rocky terrain or unexpected obstacles doesn’t mean you made a mistake or are somehow weaker.

You have the chance to prove your worth. Trust the process but, most importantly, trust your self. The prosperity you seek will come to you in due time—no sooner, no later. Keep moving forward.

You can’t stop interpersonal relationships from having messy moments, no matter how hard you try. It’s an unavoidable part of life, Taurus. So, you might as well save your energy for more productive endeavors—like learning how to clean up said messes. 

This requires you to learn to depend on others. As adept as you are at cultivating your ideal environment, you’re severely underestimating the benefits others’ insight could have on your life. What’s the harm of considering it for a moment, at the very least?

Overthinking has caused you to cut, dice and open up your past wounds in every possible way. You’ve gone over all possible scenarios, do-overs, and should-haves in your head. Yet, here you are—in the same spot where you started.

Your body is present, while your head is in past. Consequently, you’ve started to feel detached from yourself and those around you. Stars encourage you to spend some time reconnecting to yourself and others. This moment. There’s nothing left to dissect from those memories.

Allow the Moon to guide you towards a more peaceful state this week as your ruling body wanes. This week, focus on letting go of that which doesn’t serve you and leaning into what does. Even the smallest adjustments can make a big difference in your life.

As the Saturn retrograde stands in opposition to a waning crescent Moon, tension may peak midweek. Don’t jump ship too soon. This moment will soon pass, so don’t jump ship too quickly.

Your fiery nature may manifest in intense passion and romance but it can also lead to stubbornness and pride. Indeed, you’d rather pretend the problem never happened than admit you were actually in the wrong. These stars encourage you to reconsider your approach. 

Avoiding accountability won’t make this dilemma go away. On the contrary, it’ll likely make it stick around longer. This relationship will heal faster if you are willing to be vulnerable and open to communication. But you can’t have the latter without the former.

Why do you assume that your needs and those of others are different? Your emotions are much more universal than your inner voice suggests, regardless of what you may think. Of course, if you never ask, then you’ll never know, right?

Accepting that others struggle in the same way as you has two benefits. You can be more genuine and offer advice or insight to others. You can let go of the need to be perfect and openly reach out to others. They help.

Although it may not feel like it at the moment, conflict can be a good thing. canThere are many benefits to it. It can teach us how to interact with others. But it also reveals how we feel about ourselves—where we fall into our priorities or what we deserve.

As you go through this difficult time, keep your eyes open for the silver lining. Hurt feelings are never pleasant, but they don’t last forever. This conflict will not last forever. Keep your heart and mind open while you wait and resist the urge to be spiteful.

The seasons shift and you feel alive. Enjoy this wave of creative and confident energy while it’s here, Scorpio. Think about the ways you can leverage your strengths to jump from one plateau to another. You’re closer than you think.

However, you’ll have to shift your expectations a bit first. There will likely never be a time when you feel 100% sure of yourself—people rarely do. It’s your responsibility to leap anyway. That blind faith in yourself is the only way you’ll move forward.

It can be difficult to balance work and family life. But if you stop communication between them, it can make it impossible. It might surprise you how much more room you have if your needs are expressed openly.

The right people in your life won’t want to see you fail. You might need to ask yourself if they want to see you fail. As long as your motivations are good, you’ll make it out of this snag unscathed.

Nobody is obligated to make your life a one-size-fits-all affair. You can choose to let go of one obligation and not have to take on the rest. Don’t let your emotions lead you to dump the baby with the bathwater.

Could it be that careful selection requires greater attention—even greater vulnerability? To make a decision, it is important to weigh all options. It’s easier to let go of all things. But does Any part of you believe it’s actually productive?

You’ve made the cuts, taken the time off, and despite all of this, you still don’t feel any different. Be hopeful before you lose heart. It’s easy to let go of the stuff that doesn’t matter. 

But what about those things that make us feel comfortable? Those things are harder to break. Our egos can convince us in many ways that we are entitled to continue these bad habits and values in our lives. But that doesn’t make it true.

Self-care can seem like just another thing to pile on the mountain of Your to-do’s, but maybe that’s the problem, Pisces. You’re never going to feel prioritized if you can’t even make yourself a priority. It’s high time you start looking out for number one. 

Don’t be so quick to push your own needs to the bottom of the pile. The universe will eventually force you to pull them out in one way or the other. Wouldn’t you rather keep them up top where they’re easily accessible?
