there’s always a storm brewing on the horizon in this city.
what a strange, racing year it’s turned out to be.
The Rumblr’s in-house astrologer, Madame Clairevoyant, presents her latest dispatch from the stars:
Aries: This is a week for searching, it’s a week for seeking, it’s a week for traveling through forests and fields and strange dark nights. It’s a week to keep trying and a week to keep looking, as you move on your way to the things you need most. You can accept whatever help you are offered. You can find kindness in the funniest places. You can find gold, you can find treasures, you can find your truest friends, you can find everything you need.
Taurus: This is a week for choosing the life you want. This is a week for committing to your future self. You can cultivate gardens inside yourself, you can build cities, you can nurture your brightest warmest light. Try to be brave enough to turn away from the futures that will not be enough for you. Try to be brave enough to turn away from the futures that could make you unkind. Open your curtains, open the windows, watch the world outside moving all solid and shining and real.
Gemini: This week, the world is going to feel full of potential, full of electricity. Like you can feel it on your skin, like you can feel it in your bones, like you can hear it in the thundering skies. This is a week for believing every day, every moment, that something is about to happen. This week you can find the energy to do whatever you need. This week you can find the energy to end your boredom. Listen to songs that make you feel like you could fly.
Cancer: This week is going to be about the homes you can build for yourself. This week is going to be about the family you can choose for yourself. There are so many places you can escape from and there are so many places you can come home to. There are so many different kinds of love. There are so many ways to build spaces where you can live. Spend your days working hard to love the people you love. Cook food together, or tell stories, or sit together without even talking.
Leo: You might feel a little out of control this week, like the world’s moving in ways you aren’t ready for, it’s moving in patterns you don’t recognize, and it might feel like there’s nothing you can do but go along for the ride. Try not to let it scare you. Try to do the best you can. Try to give yourself time on your own, and time with the people who understand you best, and time to sit outside and watch the clouds and the birds and the people.
Virgo: This week is for traveling on highways, this week is for driving on back roads, this week is for flying so high above the ground. Keep your eyes on the countryside, keep your eyes on the clouds, keep your eyes on the golden horizon. The world can feel so big this week. The world can feel so dense and rich and strange, and the more you move, the more you can remember who you are. The more you move, the sweeter it is to come home.
Libra: This week, in the moments when you’re alone, in the moments when the sky is dense and quiet around you, in the secret moments that belong only to you, try to be brave in your thoughts. Try to name name your biggest desires. Try to hold them in your hand, try to hold them in your thoughts, try to dream of them at night. Speak them out loud to yourself and let your words work like magic. Let your words cast spells. Let them shine when you close your eyes.
Scorpio: When you’re faced with weirdness this week, or when you’re faced with challenges, or when you’re faced with unbelievable joys, try to meet them all head on. Try not to hold anything back. Don’t save anything for later. Meet the world with your fullest strength, with all your bright hot courage, with all your funny reckless love. This is a week for being wild enough to believe in your own future. This is a week for being wild enough to believe in your own life.
Sagittarius: As you move through this week, the best choices are going to be the ones that scare you, probably. The best choices are going to be the ones that thrill you, the ones that make your heart beat fast and wild in your chest. It will be easy to see your fear is a sign that you should stop, that you should turn around, that you should go back home, but for now, try to resist that. Try to fight. Try to love this bright path you’re on and your funny jumpy heart.
Capricorn: This week, try more than ever to pay attention to the world outside of yourself. Try to pay attention to what’s not said out loud. Try to pay attention to ways you can be kind, ways you can be generous, ways you can care for your friends. Even when your blood flows so hot in your veins, even when there are storms in your heart, don’t lose sight of the way the world moves, of the greens and golds of your city, of the faces of the people in your life.
Aquarius: Your feelings are maybe going to get a little wild this week, they’re maybe going to get a little tangled. Your feelings can confuse you, and they can turn you around, and they can lead you in strange directions. When it gets too wild, remember that you don’t have to listen to your own bad thoughts. You don’t have to listen to your own unkindness. You can trust your best memories or your favorite books or the sunlight through your window. You can trust the people who love you.
Pisces: It’ll be easy to feel like you’re spinning this week, maybe. It’ll be easy to feel like you’re being pulled in a thousand different directions. It’ll be easy to feel like you could just float away. Try to hold on to whatever keeps you on solid ground. Try to hold on to whatever keeps you whole. Try to hold onto the still moments and the quiet moments. Spend your evenings on the porch with your friends, just sitting, just being together. Spend your evenings watching the moon.
