How do you cope with change? If the past 18 months have offered nothing else, they’ve been like an Olympic training in change management. This week we get a chance to test if the training is paying off. Courage, generosity and compassion are on our side to tackle things head on. It may not be without drama but shifting our perspective will help alleviate the angst.

ARIES AND ARIES RISING

Do you see change as a threat or an opportunity? Spotting the silver lining amid the uncertainty this week is your #1 task this week. New perspectives or offers – especially around cash and fun – could change the way you approach creativity. If you feel yourself slipping into stuckness, let your imagination be your guide and prioritize play.

TAURUS AND TAURUS RISING

The astro weather this week brings the bigger story of 2021 to the foreground, shining a light on what you’re meant to be mastering. It’s not new, but the way you cope with it all could be. With the Sun and Mercury firing up your reserves of courage, trying a totally different approach to the same old issue could yield some very interesting results.

GEMINI AND GEMINI RISING

This week’s wild astro weather gives you the chance to practice your pivot. When things change, stay supple and watch with curiosity what unfolds. Ask yourself, “What is the lesson in all this? What little moment of wisdom can I take with me?” Staying curious and philosophical about the circumstances will help manage any underlying fears.

CANCER AND CANCER RISING

There’s some unexpected wisdom on offer this week… if you’re willing to stay open to new perspectives. Resist your instinct to cling to what you’ve always done and be open to friends and work contacts showing up in unexpected ways. They could inspire a totally new way of approaching a cash issue that’s been weighing you down.

LEO AND LEO RISING

While things aren’t as stead as you might like rn, there’s some pretty interesting opportunities swirling around you this week…if you’re open to it. Unexpected news offers or changes at work could shift your whole outlook. It could be a new job or a new way of approaching an annoying co-worker. Stay open to possibility and see what happens.

VIRGO AND VIRGO RISING

Staying grounded amid the turbulence this week is your top priority this week. Despite the craziness, there are some intriguing insights to be had, but only if you slow down long enough to notice them. Do whatever you need to re-centre your energy, calm your nervous system and remind yourself: busy does not equal important.

LIBRA AND LIBRA RISING

If 2021 has taught you anything right now it’s that plans – especially with friends – are bound to change. Staying supple and light when the goal posts move is essential to avoiding disappointment. A call or connection from out of the blue – especially around Tuesday/Wednesday – could be the encouragement you’ve been needing.

SCORPIO AND SCORPIO RISING

You know, at least objectively, that nothing changes if nothing changes. Your task for this week is to stop expecting a different outcome from the same tired, old approach. At work and in love, experiment with a different way of doing things. Loosen up and reserve judgement until you’ve at least tried a different way.

SAGITTARIUS AND SAGITTARIUS RISING

There’s change in the air this week, and thankfully you’re wired to cope it better than most. The results may feel familiar (e.g., having to cancel plans) but how you respond on an emotional level is up to you. What is the deeper learning? Approaching the uncertainty as a lesson, rather than just a huge inconvenience, could prove seriously fruitful.

CAPRICORN AND CAPRICORN RISING

Can you release your tendency to try and take care of everything on your own? It’s a big ask, but when plans go awry this week, consider how it might feel to share the burden. While the independence of your “If you want something done right, do it yourself,” attitude is admirable, this week’s stars call for a group effort. Try it and see what happens.

AQUARIUS AND AQUARIUS RISING

Carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders is Aquarius’ signature style, but this week it’s time to try something different. Making space to do something that lights you up does not mean you care any less. Laugh. Dance. Play. Be silly. No, it’s definitely not your usual MO, but you’re being served a stellar notice to at least give it a go this week.

PISCES AND PISCES RISING

The state of flux this week is unsettling, but it also offers a unique opportunity. With fire charging up the part of your chart connected to health and wellbeing, exercise is the magic bullet to any swirling anxiety. Whether it’s cooking up a bunch of new, healthy recipes or trying a different workout, having agency over your body will help calm your nervous system.
