Astrology & Empty Houses

If you look at your natal chart (the chart constructed for the time and place of your birth) you’ll find some empty houses in it. Meaning, there will be houses (sections/sectors) in your chart with no planets residing in them. This is what is meant by empty houses.

The below descriptions are based on these empty houses. They are extremely accurate… so naturally, I’m sharing. Calleen

Feeling Lost? Your Astrological Midheaven Sign Can Help You Find Your Purpose by Mary Grace Garis

Your midheaven astrology sign, also known as your MC, is an important piece of your cosmic personal brand. Beyond indicating how people see you in a one-on-one way, like your your rising sign does, it also provides clues about your natural gifts and how you can contribute to the wider world. To learn your own midheaven astrology sign, look at your natal chart to find a vertical line at the top with a little “MC” above it. This stands for medium coeli, Latin for “middle of the sky,” and it marks the zodiac sign that was directly overhead (or midheaven) at the exact moment you were born.

“The midheaven relates to our ambition and can be a good indicator to how our biggest achievements will occur in our life,” says astrologer Corina Crysler. “The MC can also be where we set goals and what we aspire to achieve.” She notes that the midheaven sign also marks the cusp of the 10th astrological house in a person’s natal chart—the region that rules career, public reputation, and drive.

“The midheaven relates to our ambition and can be a good indicator to how our biggest achievements will occur in our life. The MC can also be where we set goals and what we aspire to achieve.” —astrologer Corina Crysler.

While MC and career can go hand-in-hand, your midheaven astrology sign isn’t only about the calling that earns you money. For example, my midheaven is in Gemini, and my career—as a writer who communicates information—is reflective of that. My side hobby of posting sardonic Facebook statuses about living with my parents at age 29 is not part of my career, but judging by the volume of laugh-react emojis they garner, I believe it’s another way that I’m fulfilling my Gemini MC destiny.

Here’s what your midheaven astrology sign says about your higher calling in the world.

Midheaven in Aries

Aries are the zodiac wheel’s initiators. They tend to be very goal-focused, competitive, and are typically drawn to roles that promise growth and adventure. “This fire sign is all about movement and starting new projects, which will be infused with excitement,” says Crysler. “This is someone with a lot of courage and determination and no task will seem unachievable.” She adds that this person should avoid roles in which they’ll be micromanaged.


Midheaven in Taurus

Taurus rules authenticity, so Crysler says it’s important for this person to be seen for who they are. Staying true to their good, steady, and reliable work ethic will likely pay off. “They are good with money and could choose a career around this,” Crysler says.  This midheaven sign, in particular, should approach their goals with a methodical plan in place. “They need to feel secure and grounded in their achievements. It may take them a little longer to get there, but when they do, they tend to do it successfully,” says Crysler.

Midheaven in Gemini

Gemini midheavens are known to be excellent communicators, and therefore excel when it comes to speaking or writing. “They typically can see trends and are clever in their delivery,” says Crysler. “They have a wonderful ability to multi-task and thrive on diversity in their projects. Any path of learning and discovery will be a happy one for this MC.” The only downside to this placement? They can sometimes burn out from taking on too many projects that inspire them.

Midheaven in Cancer

“Cancer [MC]’s nurturing disposition makes them the ultimate caregiver,” Crysler says. “They love to create beautiful spaces and a comfortable atmosphere.” A career in hospitality or interior design could make sense for this person—or they could find their ultimate purpose in parenting, as Cancer rules maternal energy. No matter which path they choose, it’s important  to have energetic boundaries in place. “Be mindful of holding onto suffering, as this sensitive water MC tends to be affected emotionally by others,” Crysler says.

Midheaven in Leo

Leo energy is always closely tied to creative work, often in a very public-facing way. (Think actors, artists, or singers.) This pleasure-seeking sign must learn to stay the course even when the road gets rocky, says Crysler. “It’s important to not lose faith in your dreams. Use your creative nature to pivot and problem-solve, and, more importantly, don’t give up. Learn to keep your ego in check, and listen to those who have constructive feedback.”

Midheaven in Virgo

Those with their midheaven in Virgo have the potential to be a powerful force in wellness or healing. Crysler says they intuitively know what someone needs to rest and recover, and their love of routine allows them to help others find a personal path to well-being. “Structure is important to this sign and they make excellent problem-solvers,” says the astrologer. “But be aware of perfectionism, and [make sure] that it doesn’t prevent you from moving forward. Just get started.”

Midheaven in Libra

Libra is all about equality and bringing things into balance, so those with this midheaven sign could be phenomenal mediators, counselors, or lawyers. Their natural likability and people skills could also help them go far in interpersonal professions. “Ruled by Venus, this charming sign can attract great partnerships,” says Crysler. “Just be mindful of how much you give to others, as it may be draining your life force.”

Midheaven in Scorpio

Scorpios live to pull back the veil on what’s hidden, which means that those with this midheaven sign can make excellent therapists and investigators. Spiritual professions may suit them as well. “Many psychics, mediums, and energy workers have this MC, as they have a deep inner knowing,” says Crysler. “This midheaven sign can work in areas that may be uncomfortable for many, but they thrive on the unknown. Anything ‘surface’ will be super-boring for Scorpio MC.”

Midheaven in Sagittarius

A Sagittarius MC is someone who marches to the beat of their own drum: an offbeat teacher, a philosopher, a world traveler (you know, in happier times). “This MC does not worry about what others think of them. They are going to create their own method or modality, as their desire is to become the master of their craft,” says Crysler. Freedom is essential for this midheaven astrology sign, so they should avoid any role that would constrain them in any way.

Midheaven in Capricorn

With a natural entrepreneurial spirit, Capricorn midheavens know what they want and what they have to do to get it done. “This intelligent Earth MC is the master of structure, systems, and logistics,” says Crysler. “Their extreme ambition and need to be their own boss typically outweighs anything that stands in their way.” Feeling pessimistic or bogged down by the hustle? Crysler recommends tapping into your creativity to lighten things up.

Midheaven in Aquarius

With a philanthropic spirit, Aquarian MCs thrive on contributing to the collective. “They make excellent visionaries and inventors and have great ability to channel in ideas, especially around technology or mathematics,” says Crysler. “This MC can’t stand bureaucracy or too many rules. Therefore, aspire to have flexibility in whatever you do.” That said, don’t shy away from formal job settings because they seem stiff—you can still find fulfillment in group projects or networking.

Midheaven in Pisces

Someone with a dreamy Pisces midheaven would likely be highly intuitive and eager to to utilize their creative side. “They typically are great at design and artistry,” Crysler says, adding that they’d also do well in spiritual or healing professions. Public-facing roles, however, are not necessarily their jam. “Pisces [MCs] need their space and being the center of attention is not the most comfortable position for them,” says Crysler. They’re happiest when making things rather than managing their image—and who can fault them for that?

How To Heat Up Your Sex Life Using Your 8th House in Astrology by Mary Grace Garis

The 8th house in astrology is considered to be the zodiac wheel’s underworld—or its sex dungeon, if you will. Ruled by Scorpio and Pluto, the transformational zone of our natal charts is where our darkness lives, where we can get in touch with our deepest desires, where we can experience ecstatic growth and come into our own being. The 8th house in astrology is also, as transformational astrologer Corina Crysler says, where we can look at how “sex, intimacy, and orgasms can influence our life force, deeply connecting us to the truest essence of our soul and root chakra.”

Clearly, the 8th house in astrology can be pretty awesome, and it turns out that right now is a great time to call up on its service for improving your sex life. “Now, in a time of deep transformation with a strong influence of Pluto, it’s time to reconnect to this powerful part of ourselves and transform,” Crysler says.

But before we delve deeply into tips informed by the 8th house in astrology, let’s recap how astrological houses work in general. Each person’s natal chart is divided into 12 segments, or houses, and each house overlaps with a specific sign or two and governs a specific area of life. Knowing what sign (or signs) is connected with your 8th house in astrology can provide you with valuable intel about your sexual needs and desires.

To find out which sign that is, enter your birth date, time, and place into this free natal chart generator. Then, look to the sidebar on the right of your chart to see which sign rules your 8th house and come back here to read what that means for your sex life.

Here’s how to use your 8th house in astrology to improve your sex life, according to a transformational astrologer.

Aries 8th house

This is a passionate and physical 8th house, one that can make you an initiator in bed who’s always up for trying new things. But the confidence it brings can sometimes veer into cockiness. “Pay attention to your flirty ways whether you’re being selfish in your lovemaking,” Crysler says. “Don’t make assumptions about what your partner wants and be open-minded to be guided.”

Taurus 8th house

Ruled by the feminine energy of Venus, this 8th house has the potential to be very sensual. When it comes to sex, you need to feel connected and safe—but once you do, you’re eager to let out your wild, free spirit. “Pick beautiful places to have sex in, wear what makes you feel sexy, or create a romantic setting to call in the more spiritual side of yourself,” says Crysler.


Gemini 8th house

With Gemini in the 8th house, you need to focus. “This 8th house needs to connect mentally before they will emotionally, but getting their attention might be hard, as they’re often distracted,” says Crysler. “Dirty talksexting, writing about sex, or connecting after sex with pillow talk will heighten your sex life.” She also recommends using a feather or some oils to get out of your head and into your body.

Cancer 8th house

“Deeply emotional and intuitive, this 8th house wants you to throw down in the vulnerability department,” Crysler says. “Cuddling after and before sex might be the real fantasy.” As the zodiac’s moon child, you may have a hard time achieving orgasm without an emotional connection. Either way, Crysler suggests exploring different “avenues of touch” to help break down barriers with yourself or your partner(s).

Leo 8th house

Leo in the 8th house is fun and courageous—you’re likely willing to put your heart into romance. Role play, dress up, or some kind of sexy performance may be a turn-on, but remember to give your partner a turn in the spotlight, too. “Be open to communicating with your partner in terms of what they want, and try to not allow your ego to get bruised if they direct you in what they want,” says Crysler.

Virgo 8th house

Virgo’s emblem is “the virgin,” but having this sign in your 8th house doesn’t mean you’re destined for celibacy. You may just happen to be a natural-born perfectionist who needs permission to get a little wild. “This 8th house has to let go of overanalyzing and allow themselves to be free and messy,” says Crysler.

Libra 8th house

Love, beauty, and balance define this Venus-ruled sign. While there’s a certain elegance to Libra in the 8th house, your overwhelming need for next-level sexual attraction may lead to superficial connections. “Be open to trying spiritual practices that help you dive deeper into the 8th house,” says Crysler. If you find yourself giving more than you’re receiving, self-pleasure can help you feel more comfortable getting yours, she adds.

Scorpio 8th house

You’re not going to have a boring sex life, especially if your moon or Venus is in this house. You may be someone who’s constantly working on ways to evolve your sexual practice “Be kind and patient and help them feel safe, even though you probably intuitively know what they want,” Crysler says.

Sagittarius 8th house

“[With] this 8thy house, you can expect a playful and adventurous sex life,” says Crysler. “Toys and role playing might be fun for you.” However, as an energetic fire sign you may also rush through sexy time, so be mindful of your partner and really try to enjoy the moment.

Capricorn 8th house

“Capricorns are leaders and are strong, so this can be super hot in bed when used the right way,” says Crysler. On the flip side, you may have trouble being vulnerable, and you’ll benefit if you learn to let some of your walls down. “Practice the art of surrendering to allow yourself to enter new heights of pleasure,” says Crysler. “Look into your partner’s eyes when you are making love to them.”

Aquarius 8th house

Expressing yourself and maintaining individuality when it comes to love and sex, which sometimes detaches you from the emotional aspects, is most important to you. “Try spiritual practices like tantra to promote more full-body orgasms, or meditate with your partner for a deeper connection,” says Crysler. “If you’re bored, it won’t work.”

Pisces 8th house

This romance-forward 8th house is all about deep, meaningful connection—with an imaginative streak. “Play out your fantasies and be creative in this 8th house. Allow yourself to go to new heights of ecstasy by connecting to the strong water aspect of this sign,” says Crysler. You can intuitively express yourself in a number of ways, which, says Crysler, is what makes you an exciting lover.

Your Esoteric Astrology Outline by Coretta Cannon

I stumbled upon this page online and found it tremendously interesting. In many ways I’ve rather automatically performed Esoteric Astrology chart interpretations for most of the time I’ve been working with astrology.

For me, what really matters is where you’ve been and where you’re headed. Once you know this you rather automatically begin to understand why your life works as it does. Plus, it allows us to review all of the other planets to see how they support or challenge your mission.

Anyway, I LOVE this. So thought I’d share. Calleen

THE NEXT HOME-DECOR UPGRADE TO MAKE BY ZODIAC SIGN, USING YOUR 4TH HOUSE ASTROLOGY by Mary Grace Garis

When you’re considering a potential home renovation, or even a simple redecorating project—and with the influx of time you may have spent at home recently in order to hep stop the spread of the pandemic, you might be doing exactly that—you’d be wise to consider your 4th house in astrology. As a reminder, the zodiac wheel is divided into 12 houses that overlap with each of the zodiac signs. Each house represents a different aspect of life, and the 4th house reflects all things domestic.

“The 4th house in astrology is the sector of your chart dedicated to home and family,” says astrologer Rachel Lang. “Think of it as the soil that nurtures your roots so you can grow and succeed in other areas of your life. The 4th house shows how our living space nurtures and supports us.”

“The 4th house shows how our living space nurtures and supports us. Think of it as the soil that nurtures your roots so you can grow and succeed in other areas of your life.” —astrologer Rachel Lang

So, when you know which sign (or signs) is in your 4th house in astrology, you can make more empowered home-decor choices that can help to set you up for success in other areas of life. You can run a free online chart generator like this one to find out what exactly is going on in your 4th house.

The best home-decor tweak to make, using your 4th house astrology sign

Aries

If you’re looking at Aries energy within your 4th house, then your home is best warmed by anything conveying firey imagery—literal or abstract.

“Candles work, of course, but you can add fire in other ways,” says Lang. “Add red accent colors to your main living space, or any artwork with triangles—the shape associated with the element of fire.”

Taurus

Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of beauty and harmony, and it usually yearns for some kind of flora. Your home craves an eternal springtime, complete with fresh blossoms and pastels.

“Add flowers and live plants throughout your home to bring more beauty into your space,” says Lang. “Taurus colors are rose pink and light blue. These colors enhance the qualities of your Taurus 4th house.”

Gemini

Gemini is a quick-witted brainy sign, so your home needs a space where you can learn more and more about the things you love.

“Your 4th house needs to nurture your intellect,” says Lang. “Add a bookshelf, if you don’t have one already, and fill it with your favorite books. Make sure to leave some space on the shelf, though, for new books. A bookshelf that’s too full communicates no more room for learning and personal growth.”

Cancer

Since Cancer is the ruler of all things domestic, it feels at home in the 4th house. You need your sphere to be untouchable and calming, and you can best do that by playing upon Cancer’s given element.

“Add a water fountain by your front entrance so whenever you enter, you have an immediate sense of coming home to a spa-like environment since water is Cancer’s element, and the sounds of it would be soothing,” says Lang. “If it’s not possible to have a fountain, consider a painting with blue tones. Make your space a place of relaxation from the very moment you enter the door.”

Leo

You want to bring out your inner lioness, and that means being able to play with sparkle and lux, fuzzy textures.

“I recommend gold for your home decor,” says Lang. “Really make your space shine with a dramatic flair. Metallics work well for Leo 4th house people, and another idea to consider would be incorporating animal prints into your decor or having a faux fur throw on your sofa.”

Virgo

Lang suggests that Virgo 4th house people make their space sleek and clean. While you appreciate simple, elegant decor, what matters most is that your home is orderly.

“For those with Virgo on the 4th house cusp, organization is a priority. A trip to the Container Store could be dangerous,” Lang says. “I recommend creating a multifunctional space that you can use as an office space for the times when you’re working more from home. Turn a closet into a desk space, or add a statement-piece desk with an organization system.”

Libra

Beauty and balance are the cornerstones to rely on here. “The sign of Libra is the sign of partnership,” says Lang. “In choosing art, go for paintings and sculptures that feature things in pairs or multiples of two. Stay away from images with either one person or three, since things in threes are considered challenging for relationships in feng shui. Avoid three mirrors hanging side by side or triptychs.”

Lang also recommends you stay clear of pictures of just one person, unless there’s a particular significance to attached (like, say, a beloved family member).

Scorpio

Leaning on Scorpio’s love of mysticism, you likely see your home as a highly sacred space where the magic happens.

“I recommend creating an intentional meditation space with an altar, meditation cushions, candles, and silk cloths,” says Lang. “Silk is a high-vibrational fabric. It can be a protective barrier between you and other things in your environment. You could use it to cover your altar or meditation cushion to add to the sacredness of your space.”

Sagittarius

“For you, outdoor space is as important as indoor,” Lang says. “Even if you live in a condo or apartment, it’s helpful to have a space in which you can enjoy being outside for nurturing a sense of home. Sagittarius is a fire sign, and adding fire elements would support the foundation of your 4th house so you can grow in all areas of your life.”

Consider adding a beautiful, sculptural fire bowl to your outdoor space, for cool summer nights when you really need the fresh air.

Capricorn

Capricorn is associated with keeping tradition and honoring the past, which is why your home decor will probably benefit from going vintage. This means collecting old photos of your grandparents or trolling Etsy for antique finds.

“Antique tapestries, furniture, or fixtures will add elegance to your space and a touch of history,” Lang says. “Be careful to not have your space look like a museum, though. Layer old and new items in your space. It’s a bonus if your antiques have a special meaning for you because that will enhance the energetics of the space.”

Whether you inherit or buy these materials, Lang recommends you make sure you clear them with sage to dissolve any energies of the previous owners. Do a ceremony in which you burn sage and smudge the item, bless it, clear the energy of the previous owner, and claim it as yours.”

Aquarius

Aquarius is the sign of energetic connections between others, as well as a socially responsible humanitarian sign. And as Lang points out, anyone with Aquarius in the 4th house knows those connections transcend human relationships.

“We feel them with our pets, plants, and all living things in our environment,” says Lang. “I recommend adding a living wall to a space in your home. This decorative element would help you feel connected to nature. It would benefit the environment and clear the air, contributing to the overall ecosystem of the home.”

Pisces

Like Cancer, relying on Pisces water element will help you feel really nurtured and safe. And hey, you might actually be able to get some quarantine company.

“I find an aquarium or even a goldfish bowl helpful,” says Lang. “If keeping things alive isn’t your thing, then add a water element in a different way. Decorate with shades of blue or incorporate a water fountain in your living space.”

Your Zodiac Sign’s Most Overlooked Quality by LISA STARDUST

There’s more to Pisces than tears, okay???

We all know the classic “traits” of each Sun sign: Scorpios are sexy, Tauruses are stubborn, Geminis are “two-faced” (seriously, what’s with all the Gemini hate?). The list goes on. However, these characteristics aren’t necessarily *true*. That’s why we compiled a list of your sign’s most overlooked qualities—to wake everyone up. Not all Capricorns are workaholic CEOs and not all Leos are IG influencers-in-training.This content is imported from {embed-name}. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

Here’s the ~other side~ to your Sun sign:

ARIES

The haters may call you aggressive, but you have a soft, romantic side that’s rarely seen. When you fall, you fall hard, and you’ll do anything to woo your boo—even (gasp!) letting them take the lead in planning dates.

TAURUS

You have a rep for being stubborn and rigid, but real talk: You can also be carefree and spontaneous. You’re amazingly centered and you know how to ~live in the moment~.

GEMINI

The term “ride-or-die” is all you, Gemmy! In fact, you always put your pals first—even before your own needs. You’re the one organizing the group Google Hangs and listening to your friend vent about their roomie. You’re a real BFF.

CANCER

Face facts, Cancer: You’re a total baller! You like to work and play hard, and you’ve got the inside scoop on the people and places to know. Plus, you’re always ready to share your networking skills, which—bonus!—boosts your own success.Related StoryThe Best Days to Ask for a Raise, by Zodiac Sign

LEO

You’re generous to those in need, which is a trait that’s overshadowed by your ~love of the spotlight~. The truth is that you give your all—resources, contacts, compliments, whatev—to anyone who needs a boost. You’ve got a big personality, yes, but your heart’s even bigger.

VIRGO

Ever hear the saying “patience is a virtue”? Well, that could be your motto. But despite your *cool vibe*, you have a slow-burning temper that comes out when you’re really pushed (after being calm for far longer than you should be). Overall, you’re 95 percent chill, but that other 5 percent…watch out!

LIBRA

You can be a lil aggressive when it comes to getting your way. True, you’re not the type to triple-text the group chat to make your point known. But you’ve got the *intensity* to make sure that you’re always heard, no matter what.

SCORPIO

Contrary to what people think, you’re actually really sweet. This may surprise those who don’t know you very well, because your brooding intensity keeps out those who aren’t the real deal. But when people get to know the ~real you~, they’ll find a calmness and niceness that might surprise them.Related StoryWhat Your Sun Sign Says About Your Breakup Style

SAGITTARIUS

You tell it like it is and sometimes even get in trouble for your blunt nature. However, you still have an imaginative side. You’re always ready to swap stories and open up about your ~feelings~ to others, even if some of your tales aren’t one hundred percent true. Your dreamy vibe is your most overlooked characteristic—embrace it more!

CAPRICORN

You are hands down one of the funniest signs of the zodiac. You’re a workaholic, yes, but your dry wit makes you a favorite with your friends and in the office too. You know how to make your colleagues laugh with your sarcasm and eye rolls during those meetings that should have been emails.

AQUARIUS

You can be a little competitive—even with those in your inner circle. Being fierce isn’t a bad thing, so don’t fret! This characteristic will enable you to crush it at work—but stay away from cutthroat tactics because they can backfire.

PISCES

You’re known for your intuitive, dreamy nature, but you’ve got an analytical side too. You observe matters carefully before committing to a particular way of thinking. This helps you understand people and situations on a deeper level before you decide whether to dive in or swim away.

Hidden Message Beneath Your Deepest Anxiety, Based on Your Zodiac Sign June 2020 by GamingBrat.com

I stumbled upon this accidentally and saw SO much truth in it, for so many people I know, I had to share it. Great Article. Calleen

Aries

After years of uncertainty and longing, you’re finally coming home to yourself. Over the past few months, you’ve gained radical clarity on exactly who you are and exactly what you want, and it couldn’t be a more exciting time for you personally. What you have to remember is that just because you have determined your end-goal, it doesn’t mean you’re a failure because you haven’t quite arrived there yet. The more you are able to visualize the life you want, the more you can start living it now. Don’t put your happiness on pause until you’ve achieved something greater than yourself. Remember that the energy that you infuse into this very day will be what ultimately determines your fate.

Taurus

You are beginning to learn that life does not have to be difficult in order to be worthwhile. After a year or so of tremendous growth, you’re ready to tackle an entirely new chapter in your life, but that much change won’t come without uncertainty and a degree of fear. But in that is the lesson itself: life is not just about working, paying bills and going to bed. You don’t need to feel guilty for living exactly the way that you want to, even if it seems more lush or exciting than other people. The truth is that you create your own paradise, and you will not be able to tolerate a lukewarm existence for much longer. Your fear is not holding you back, it’s signaling the start of a new future.

Gemini

For too long you have spent your life trying to earn your own happiness, Gemini. You’ve been in and out of relationship funks, financial woes and other stressors that have seemed to be nonstop. But no longer. Your new lease on life involves not only accepting yourself as you are but leaning into your existence as it is. This year you are tasked with finding the true, unprecedented joy in everyday life, no longer idling hours away worrying, ruminating and trying to make everyone else around you happy. At this point, you’re reckoning your identity. You’re realizing that you’ve built your entire self-image around the service of other people’s needs, and no longer. You deserve your own happiness right here and right now.

Cancer

You’re in a period of transition right now, Cancer, that’s undoubtedly true. What’s stressing you out the most at this point in time is probably not your own fears, but your response to those around you who are going through their own emotional issues. This is not just a period of learning for you, it’s a period of finding yourself deeply. You cannot allow your happiness to be contingent upon how those around you feel or behave. You need to hold your own not only for yourself but also for them. You have made or are making profound life changes that are due to have an incredibly positive impact on your day-to-day quality of life. Even if you have doubts now and again, remember that you are on the right path, even if you get scared that you aren’t. Next year you’ll begin to truly feel the depth of the important changes you’ve made.

Leo

This season, you’re getting a crash course on true self-love. You are utterly exhausted from having to try to battle yourself, your body, your mind, your relationships, and everything else. The good news is you no longer have to if you’re willing to understand that your deepest anxiety simply comes from a lack of self-acceptance. You are permitted to be as you are in the world, you do not have to change anything about yourself to be deemed worthy of love and grace and joy. You mistakenly think that changing your external life will shift how you feel when in reality, the very act of radical acceptance will heal you, and nothing will ever be the same again.

Virgo

You are allowed to fail. You are allowed to be imperfect. You are allowed to rip off the last few pages in your story and start anew. Your deepest anxiety comes from your perceived imperfections, which are, ultimately, an illusion of your mind. In order to move on with your life, you’re going to have to accept that not every single thing you attempt will be perfect, and that’s okay. You are not liable for being the most ideal version of yourself at every moment of every day. Your true pain comes almost entirely from not being able to accept that you are human, not actually the failure itself.

Libra

The fears that you have been grappling with lately are not trying to signal to you that something is wrong with your life, rather, they are symptoms of a deep emotional and energetic purge that you must undergo in order to step into your new life. In 2016, you went through your emerald year, in which all of the pieces of your best and most fulfilling life were presented to you. In 2017, you went through the process of readjusting and settling, letting go of what was in order to embrace what is. This year, it’s all about not just getting by, but thriving. No longer will you be able to accept a life half lived. You are finally ready to reap the benefits of your years of hard work, and a personal renaissance is right around the corner. Lean into the reckoning, and shed your old skin.

Scorpio

This is a time of big transitions and bigger decisions for you. You will probably find yourself in limbo at this juncture in your life, and the lesson that you have to learn is discernment. Do you want to spend the rest of your life with the person you are dating? If not, why are you with them? Could you see yourself happily staying at your job for another 3, 5 or 15 years. If not, why aren’t you looking for other options? If you’re so jealous of what other people have, why are you ruminating in your self-pity rather than trying to build joy for yourself? These are the questions that need to be lingering in your mind because this is a year of radical self-transformation for you. Once you make a decision, and a commitment, to what you want for the future, everything will unfold perfectly. Your greatest joy is on the other side of your indecision.

Sagittarius

Deep down, you know that this is a time of reinvention for you. The old life you were leading is not working anymore, whether, by necessity or desire, you know that there’s something more you can and need to be doing. Your lingering anxiety is trying to communicate to you not only that you’re capable of making these changes, but that you need to. You have to stop punishing yourself for not being where you want to be and recognize that your fear is actually a signal that you are underutilizing your potential. But you know what? It means that potential exists, and if you can focus on that more than what you’re afraid of, you’ll be on the brink of living the life your dreams.

Capricorn

You know that something needs to change in your life, and you’ve known it for a while. The job may not be working out. Your hangups with your ex may not have faded as you’d hoped they might. Over time, you’ve found yourself gripping onto remnants of the past, pieces of a life that no longer suit you. Your anxiety is trying to communicate that this is no way to live. It robs you of your joy, your energy, and most of all, your potential. The incredible thing about accepting what isn’t working is that you can finally lean into what is. Your ego is the only thing holding you back from experiencing more happiness than ever before. Don’t deny yourself any longer.

Aquarius

This year you’re getting a radical schooling in character. Sure, you know what it’s like to be powerful, successful, accomplished and proud… but what happens when you’re not also grounded, humbled, and kind to all whom you interact with? You lose your way, that’s what happens. When challenges arise, you recognize how crucial it is to treat others as you’d want to be treated, to be the same person in private as you are in public. Maybe you haven’t realized that your actions have been negatively impacting other people, but you’ve begun to get the hint. Either way, you’re in a process of finding your inner kindness, which can only be facilitated by a sort of inner peace. Embrace that which you already know to be true.

Pisces

It is never too late to wipe the slate clean and begin again, and this is what you need to remember during this period of your life. You are not responsible for upholding the values and priorities of a person you no longer are. If you dislike where you are or what’s happened in the past, stop focusing on it, and instead, build a new reality in its place. You are not defined by what happened, you’re defined by what you do now. Your anxiety is gnawing at you to realize that ruminating is not serving you. It’s not making you more wise or intelligent or compassionate. Only present, mindful action can do that, and you’re going to continue to feel uneasy until you realize you’ve always had the power to build the life of your dreams.

Mercury Is In Cancer. Grab The Tissues By ELIZABETH GULINO

Chatty Mercury officially enters intuitive Cancer on 28th May, and you might want to stock up on tissues. The messenger planet will be spending an unusual amount of time in the emotional sign of Cancer this year — like, almost four times longer than usual.

Normally, Mercury hangs out in each sign for about 17 days. But on 18th June, the planet of communication goes retrograde. As a result, it’ll stick around in Cancer until 5th August, according to Narayana Montúfar, senior astrologer for Astrology.com and Horoscope.com. And while Mercury is in Cancer, you’ll be in your feelings.”Cancer is one of the most sensitive, psychic, and emotional signs of the zodiac,” Montúfar says. “When communication planet Mercury enters it, our exchanges become more connected and influenced by our feelings.”

“Cancer is what we call a ‘mute’ sign,” adds astrologer Lisa Stardust. “The water sign is unable to speak its sentiments. It leans into emotions and intuition, not words.”

This energy could help you strengthen your bond with your loved ones and yourself. “This transit gives us the opportunity to get in touch with our intuition as we learn to communicate in a more empathic, sympathetic way,” explains Montúfar.

But it could also set the stage for crossed wires. Stardust says that when Mercury is in Cancer, you’re so plugged in that you may expect others to understand how you feel on an intuitive level — which can be problematic, when others have trouble reading your mind. Practice saying how you feel out loud, and try not to take misunderstandings too personally.

Flag 8th July and 27th July. Those will be two of the most difficult days of the transit, says Montúfar, as Mercury “forms two angry squares with warrior planet Mars, releasing anger and pent-up energy.” Knowing you could be feeling a little hot under the collar on these days might encourage you to slow down. Spend a little extra time on self-care, and make a point of thinking before you react.

“Mercury in Cancer will be most comfortable for water and earth signs, and it will be more difficult for those born under fire signs,” explains Leslie Hale, psychic astrologer at Keen.com. Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius — we’re looking at you. These next several months will challenge you to learn to react less emotionally and more logically. You might slip up, but there’s the potential for long-term growth.

Don’t worry, there are bright spots too. The most positive days of this transit are 5th June, 30th June, and 22nd July, Montúfar says. “These dates are when Mercury will form opportune sextiles with Uranus, bringing creativity and the ability to channel a genius-like energy,” she says. Use this time to brainstorm and work on passion projects. You may be surprised by your own abilities.

“Perhaps the luckiest day is 30th July, when Mercury will oppose Jupiter in Capricorn to deliver all kinds of fortunate and maybe even unexpected gifts in the form of messages,” Montúfar adds. Mark your calendars and keep your ears and eyes open — you won’t want to miss a thing.
