The Rumblr’s in-house astrologer, Madame Clairevoyant, presents her latest dispatch from the stars:
Aries: This week, keep to yourself; this week, keep your secrets. You’re going to feel that every single bit of you is so precious, that your thoughts are pure and magical, that your bones are made of gold. Try not to let it all spill out, try to just let some of the brightness show in your eyes, in your voice. It’s good to be gentle this week, it’s good to keep your secrets inside of you, right now, while you watch all the life and motion in your street, while you watch your cat stretching out in the sun.
Taurus: This week’s going to be made of feelings that are full and wild, feelings that are stormy, feelings that make you want to dance, that make you want to puke, that make you feel like you’re splitting apart. Spend time with other people, this week, because they’re the ones who will keep you together, the ones who will remind you who you are, the ones who will listen to you and share their food. They’re will let you crack apart, just a little, if it’ll help you breathe easier. Listen to songs about love.
Gemini: This week, you’re going to feel most alive at night, most alive underwater, most alive when you’re dreaming. This week, you’re going to feel pulled to places that are a little inhospitable, places that are hard to make sense of. Follow the weird forces that draw you through the world; listen to the things that the wind and the water sing to you. Carry this with you, when you come back to your regular life, to remind you of your own peculiar, precious dreams. Get lonely, if you want. Listen to songs without words.
Cancer: This week is a good week to chase down warm sweet summertime feelings. It’s a good week to float at the lake, to smell the summer pines, to get dreamy and nostalgic and silly about it, to drive home on the highway in the hot blue night. It’s a good week to take cold showers and turn up your fan and think about nights full of fireflies and sweetness. Pretend that the whole world can be as dreamy and hazy and green as you want it to be, and ignore anyone who tells you it can’t.
Leo: This is a week for being a little curious and a little serious, for reading, for asking questions that scare you, for letting your mind spin around and around. This week is a good time to organize your house and to organize the things inside your head, to put the pieces of your life in place, to look at your world like it’s a puzzle. This week, the closer you look, the more you focus on details, the more questions you ask, the more the world will show you. Spend your days in the library, spend your nights reading in bed.
Virgo: This week you’re going to find yourself so exhausted at the end of every day, so worn out, so drained and still so full of a wild and restless energy. This week, it’s going to feel very urgent to fill up your whole life with things that are new or things that are solid or things that glow like the moon. This is good and this is real, but remember to stop, when you can, and feel the way your body lives in the world, feel the way blood and water move through you. Read poems that make you sigh.
Libra: This week, all your vision and all your energy are going to become sharp and intense and they’re going to focus—like a laser, like a sunbeam—on the strangest places inside you, the places that get darkest, the places that you need to look towards. It’s important to pay attention. Watch for details. This is a good week to work on yourself and to work on your home. Mow the lawn or plant some seeds or paint the walls or hang up pictures of your friends, your heroes, your mom. Open all the windows.
Scorpio: This week, it’s going to feel like everything going on in your life is happening in languages that you have not quite mastered yet, in colors your eyes can’t see, in registers too low for your ears. This week, it might feel like you’re not quite on solid ground, and this is okay. Try not to listen so hard. Try to watch faces, watch hands, watch for changes in the light, trust your instincts, trust your stomach. Don’t try to do anything with all this information right now, just hold it, take it inside your body.
Sagittarius: This week’s going to be really embarrassing, maybe, and this is a good thing, this is the best thing, this is something rich and full of possibilities, full of joy. Try to commit to it, this weird embarrassment that comes when you try, when you show yourself, when you let yourself be known. Try to open yourself up, this week, try to display your messy brain and guts and horrible beating heart. Be very earnest about it. Sit up as straight as you can. Tell your secrets to every single person who will listen to them.
Capricorn: This is going to be a good week for trying, a good week for motion, a good week for victories that are small and dense and important to you. This is a week for building, for walking up hills, for feeling yourself getting stronger, getting smarter, getting better, every time you try to be, at the things you want to do. Work on your projects, work on asking for things. Work on being open and being generous and being ready for every future, for every sweetness. Read books about machines and books about magic.
Aquarius: This week, every blade of grass, every cloud, every single atom in your body, are all going to be aligned in just the right way, just the right configuration, to let you be brave, to let you face some very dark places and very real ghosts, to let you move—bright and courageous and protected—through your streets and your town and your weird inner world. Trust the sky and the ground and the things you know: trust yourself. Read about people who are afraid and people who are brave and people who make the wildest choices.
Pisces: This week might feel confusing, this week you might feel small, this week you might feel a little lost, this week you might feel very far from home. There are joys in rootedness and joys in connection and there are other, different joys that you can find this week, in floating through the world, untouched, unbothered, unseen, eyes open. Love and honor your roots, your connections to people and places and landscapes and pieces of sky, but also, this week, honor your need to move so freely, your need to get unstuck. Listen to songs about leaving.
