What resources do you have on hand to help hold your centre? While the ground may feel like it’s moving beneath you – especially early this week – it’s all part of a larger story that’s been building for some time. Tricky as it may seem, there’s wisdom to be mined from the uncertainty. Although it may be hard to move past your knee-jerk reaction, look for the deeper lesson you’re supposed to be mastering here.

As things heat up on a macro level, working with what you’ve got to stay grounded will be key. Surround yourself with the things that make you feel confident – and courageous – if necessary. Connect with that Leo season fire to stay true to what’s right for you, and try not to get too attached to outcomes. Things will change, but you can control how you respond.

Aries and Aries rising

Don’t be surprised if you find yourself curled up with your computer and a full cart of ‘I can’t believe I’m actually going to buy this’ pieces. The impulsivity you’ve been feeling around spending reaches fever pitch, but if you dig a little deeper, the real question is, what are those purchases saying about who you long to be?

Taurus and Taurus rising

There’s a sense of significance to this week as an ongoing storyline that’s been unfolding since November last year reaches a crescendo. It’s not an eclipse, but it almost feels like one. Don’t put things down to coincidence, the developments are most definitely intended to for you. Lean into whatever practices help ground you through the growing pains.

Gemini and Gemini rising

“Big change” is the signature scent of this week. Thankfully you’re more equipped to deal with it – maybe even enjoy the vibe – than perhaps any other sign. Flex those iconic Gemini smarts and roll with it. Just remember not everyone will take the shakeup in their stride as effortlessly as you.

Cancer and Cancer rising

Theoretically speaking, if you were looking for new friends, what qualities would you seek out? What do you care about in a friend (right now)? Exactly what matters to you in your platonic relationships is something to bear in mind this week. With curveballs coming at your thick and fast, let what you truly value be your guiding light.

Leo and Leo rising

The excitement at work continues this week as a growing desire to realign your work with what you care about, reaches fever pitch. A double-whammy of “screw this” energy from Mars and Uranus could be the thing you needed to make a big change. While it may seems sudden, the underlying motivation has been brewing for quite some time.

Virgo and Virgo rising

Your MacGyver nous makes you the one most likely to carry a travel-size version of your complete skincare regime and several spare pairs of knickers when your flight is delayed/cancelled/detoured. While other signs may mock you for your packing prowess, you could have the last laugh this week. Rest easy knowing this week, even if you feel out of control, you’ll be more prepared than most.

Libra and Libra rising

You could find yourself burning through cash or spending like you’ve got money to burn this week, as Mars and Uranus trigger surprise purchases…or annoying expenses. There’s no need to panic, just calmly work through what needs to get sorted. Get quotes, run the numbers and remember sometimes debt is sometimes a necessary evil.

Scorpio and Scorpio rising

Learning to love the different versions of a person is one of the hardest parts about being in a long-term relationship. This week, if you’re feeling triggered, remember no one stays the same. The question is not ‘what happened to the person I fell in love with?’ but ‘Am I prepared to grow with you?’. There is no right or wrong answer. Deep down, you know the answer.

Sagittarius and Sagittarius rising

Staying malleable and gracious is essential to navigating this week’s wild weather. With more plot twists than a Scandi noir, concentrate on being open to – and expecting – change. Accept the fact that sometimes stuff just doesn’t work out the way you expected – especially when it comes to appointments and scheduling. It’s not the end of the world, being on time is way overrated.

Capricorn and Capricorn rising

Expect the playing field to be turned upside down this week as Uranus and Mars stir up a whole lot of where-did-that-come-from energy. It’s the underdog beating the season leaders vibes, or a hook-up with the person least likely. Random? Yes. But whichever way you slice it, it’s definitely not dull.

Aquarius and Aquarius rising

The restlessness that’s had you on edge all year – especially around where you’re living – will come to a head this week. Things will move quickly – you might worry too quickly – but ultimately this is a step in the right direction. Try to maintain a sense of perspective and if it all gets too much, do something to get out of your head and back in your body.

Pisces and Pisces rising

Breaking free is a major theme this week. Exactly what that looks like will be different for everyone, but if anyone can let go, it’s you. Sure, the method may seem a little blunt by your standards but the result will ultimately make space for what’s coming next.
