Last week was intense. In this weekly horoscope, you’ll learn that this week won’t be that much better. But here’s the good news: it’ll be the last bump in the road for a while. Instead of avoiding confrontations and issues, accept accountability and responsibility. Owning your part in a situation is essential to mending and repairing relationships, and that’s the only way to get through all of this cosmic energy unscathed.
May 21 - June 20
During Mercury Retrograde, you’re the blast from the past that’s seeking revenge. But before you plan a sneak attack to torment your exes, ask yourself if you really want to go there right now. It may stir up residual negative emotions about situations and relationships, and TBH — you’d be digging something up that should remain buried. Sometimes it’s best to leave the past alone, and that’s the best option for you this week.
June 21 - July 22
Hide from all the noise and drama this week. After all, these aren’t your battles to fight! The problem isn’t you or anyone else — it’s the person stirring the pot. Unfortunately, ignoring the issue and avoiding confrontation is the only way to remedy the problem in a mature manner. Let everyone else argue while you relax in peace. As much as being in the mix is important, it’s not worth it when it comes to Gossip Girl-level drama.
July 23 - August 22
Does the drama ever stop for your squad? It’s not fair to your friends to be blamed for situations they are not a part of — especially since you’re not being real with yourself about the part you play in the conflict. Don’t project your issues and worries onto those you care about! And don’t pop off right away, either, especially when you’re feeling emotional. Take a step back and breathe. Tone it down before you start a major argument.
August 23 - September 22
Everyone is draining your energy lately, which is why it’s the perfect week to implement self-care into your daily routine. Don’t dole out any of your energy to others until it’s replenished. And, even then, make sure that it’s filled to the brim. That way, you can avoid feeling exhausted and be radiant instead. Protect your aura and energy by cleansing your phone with crystals and sprinkling salt along the windowsills.
September 23 - October 22
The main character syndrome is real this week. You’re acting like everything is about you, and, well... it’s not. The over-romanticizing and constant monologuing in conversation is adding a lot of tension to your friendships. The only way to get out of this habit is to remember that life is not a feature film. Although it would be nice to live in a movie, the reality is that you need to refresh the way you communicate with your besties to mend your friendships.
October 23 - November 21
Never one to hold back, you’ve found that you’ve actually been biting your tongue for the past several weeks. Now, you want to speak up and let your feelings be known. But you’re also not known to handle matters of the heart delicately, which is why a big storm is brewing with your BFFs, thanks to you. Before you confront them, think about what you want to express — this will keep you on task and ensure that you don’t snap when provoked.
November 22 - December 21
After months of being M.I.A., your favorite ex has resurfaced. Before you question whether or not you should send them to voicemail when they reach out, consider it like this: you wouldn’t like it if they ignored you. Treat them with the same respect you’d like in return. It doesn't have to be a long-winded conversation about your lives — a quick catch up is totally fine! Just remember that they’re not trying to start drama rooted in the past, so it’s totally cool to have a chat with them to check in.
December 22 - January 19
You may be a boss at school, but that doesn’t mean that you’re the one calling the shots in your friendships and relationships. Power struggles are brewing within your crew. Drop the need to be in control. The moment you realize that there are no leaders in a group, you’ll be able to connect with those you care about on a deeper level and feel like equals. It takes two to make a friendship work!
January 20 - February 18
You’re beginning to freak out about your summer plans. Work had been placed on the back burner while you finished up school, and now you’re stressing about what's next — especially because all of your pals have job plans set in motion. If it’s too late to apply for an internship, look around for a local gig. It’ll feel nice to make your own money for the next few months and start saving if you’re able to.
February 19 - March 20
We all have dreams, Pisces, but you have more than others. This week is a great time to start bringing your visions to life. Think about what you want to manifest and try to take the necessary steps to make them a reality. With a little hard work, you’ll find that everything you’ve dreamed of and thought was impossible can actually happen. After all, the word “impossible” spells out “I’m possible.” Don’t let the naysayers get you down! Anything is attainable if you believe in yourself.
March 21 - April 19
Let’s keep it real: you always feel the need to be #1 at everything in life, but most of the time you won’t be. This applies to school, family dynamics, and friendships. There’s a lot going on within your squad, and it’s okay to take a break from them. The moment you stop worrying about and focusing on what everyone else is doing or saying, the better you’ll feel about yourself.
April 20 - May 20
You are a creator and an innovator. This means that you should never feel hindered by expressing your artistry with others, or even discussing it with your friends. Opening up and talking about future projects will help others understand and recognize your talents. Let the world see your artistry. They will be blown away by all that you’ve been holding inside, and you’ll continue to impress them for years and years to come. You are capable of anything as long as you put your mind and heart to it.
