In this weekly horoscope, it’s evident that it’s been a long road for us all towards finding personal fulfillment. Now, we’re being challenged by the universe and questioning our paths. But the solution is simple: we must do what it takes to make ourselves feel good. This includes putting ourselves first. You are the only person responsible for your happiness. Go get it!
May 21 - June 20
Thanks to Mercury’s current backwards spin, there’s been a ton of miscommunications in your life. It’s been challenging trying to overcome the tension that comes with misunderstandings and a high level of anxiety. But this week’s a wonderful time to try and remedy the situation. Your friends and family will forgive your missteps, mostly because they totally get what you’re going through. After accepting your apology, if they offer help in reducing your workload, take it. They have your back because they want you to succeed.
June 21 - July 22
Your intuition is off! It may feel as though all of your friends are talking about you behind your back, but they’re not. TBH, their lack of communication has nothing to do with you. They’re just spending some quiet time alone this week. You haven’t been in any arguments with them — so there’s no real reason to be concerned about their silence. Stop spending your energy on worries. Figure out what’s really bothering you by meditating and looking within. Then, you can reclaim your energy from others and grow stronger as a result.
July 23 - August 22
You and your BFF are constantly leaning on each other, which is creating a lack of structure in your relationship. You both can — and have — become too invested in each other’s lives, which is breeding lots of issues and confusion. The only way to salvage your friendship is to implement boundaries and avoid codependent behavior. If you don’t, you’ll start projecting your feels onto each other — and your emotions mixed with their emotions is a recipe for muck. It’s best to not give too much to one person. That way, you can share the emotions and stories you want, without divulging all your secrets.
August 23 - September 22
These past few weeks, the energy has been stagnant and heavy. Finally, the clouds are parting and you’re able to see the sunshine. There’s a major shift in the tides bringing you extra luck. Hope is on the horizon! Bask in the good vibes and don’t stress the small stuff (really try, Virgo!). Grab an iced coffee with your bestie and take a socially-distanced stroll around town. Let yourself laugh. By embracing the abundance of positivity headed your way, you’ll find that you’ve achieved happiness with more ease than you thought.
September 23 - October 22
Just when you thought that you were getting the hang of being in the limelight with your peers, you’ve come to the realization that it’s not really for you. Ruling the halls at school is cool for like, a minute... but it’s a lot of pressure. Being popular can be time-consuming, stressful, and exhausting — not to mention the fact that everyone’s always judging you. As a soulful person, you understand that none of the glamour matters. Focus on doing what you want, with whomever you want, instead of worrying about what people say. It’s your life, go live it!
October 23 - November 21
Let’s be real: you don’t have much balance in your life. You’re the kind of person with a one-track mind. The one thing that consumes you becomes the only thing that matters. However, you’re learning how to give your all to multiple projects, and take on more than just one responsibility, and the same applies to your relationships. You want to be social, but that doesn’t mean spending every second with your crew. Try not to overdo it by hanging all night. Make minimal plans to ensure that you have time for yourself, as well.
November 22 - December 21
Time travel and say “hello” to the past — or, well, an ex. Whether or not you want to, you’ll be forced in one way or another to interact with them. Being the free spirit that you are, this isn’t something that you’re particularly comfortable doing. But rather than gallop away, listen to what your former boo has to say. You may be surprised by what they want. Odds are, your old flame wants to catch up or hook up, nothing more, so try not to stress about the meetup.
December 22 - January 19
You like consistency, but you’re growing a little bored with the same old routine. It’s time to spice things up. Rather than drinking basic coffee, add a dash of cinnamon or cocoa powder. Take the long scenic route when driving with your friends to school. Mix things up at lunch by eating your fave meal that you don’t often get a chance to enjoy. All of these little choices will add up, and inspire you to take bigger steps towards diversifying your life throughout the week. Pretty soon, you’ll be Postmating your lunch from the local taqueria and exploring different parts of your neighborhood.
January 20 - February 18
You have finally connected with the perfect crush. Now, your anxiety is high about meeting them IRL. The best way to ease your worries is to chat with them on FaceTime beforehand to see what they’re like. You’re going to like them more than you expect. Your insecurities may make you feel as though you’re not good enough for them — you are! (And then some!) Don’t let your self-doubts get in the way of linking up with someone that could be your future love.
February 19 - March 20
They say home is where the heart is. Nothing rings more true for you this week. It's been a long spring, to say the least, and you’ve been focusing your energies on familial matters. Hanging with your brood has been amazing. You don’t want the fun to end. However, the fam wants to start doing their own thing. Rather than guilting your family into staying home and watching Gilmore Girls for the trillionth time, let them go out and spend time with their friends. It’ll be good for all of you to have some time away from each other.
March 21 - April 19
All the gossip and negativity in your friendship circle is getting to you. You don’t feel the need to participate in the shadiness. In fact, you may even stand up to your friends in defense of those they’re making fun of. The truth of the matter is this: you’re a fundamentally kind person. You don’t need or want that type of energy in your orbit. And if that means taking a break from your squad, then so be it.
April 20 - May 20
No one knows how you’re able to work hard and play hard 24/7 — not even you! But TBH, it’s been more work than play these days. Your brain is overloaded with all the assignments you’ve recently taken on. Before you add more to your to-do list, consider if you can actually have enough room on your plate. Can you realistically do any more work? If not, that’s all the more reason to press pause. This week, you’re in need of some real R & R. Allow yourself time to chill out at home and do literally anything else other than think about work. Relax, Taurus!
