Personal Horoscopes

For best results, read for your ascendant/rising sign. If you don't know your ascendant, you can calculate it here.

Aries This week promises to be an illuminating week for you, Aries. Long-term issues with publishing and your calling are in the spotlight, but if you keep your eyes open, the potential exists for major progress in these areas. It may require acknowledging truths about yourself that you don't want to admit, but you'll have the information you need to make a plan with concrete steps in order to publish work that's up to your current standards. At the same time, keep an eye out for new information that reveals how things that have been kept from you, callings you couldn't pursue, were actually (admittedly harsh) blessings in disguise. With this knowledge in hand, you'll be able to embrace a new beginning. 

Taurus This may be a difficult week for you, Taurus. If you have wounds or painful growing areas around publishing, they'll be in the spotlight this week. This time won't last for long, though, and if you keep your eyes open, it's possible that you'll be able to see ways in which the things you lost were never actually in your best interest, anyway. Maybe, a market that rejected you folded soon after. Or, a success in one area would have kept you comfortably in a genre you had the potential to outgrow. If you can, try to find ways to avoid being imprisoned by the past this week. Draw a line in the sand and mark this time as a new beginning.

Gemini This week is the ideal time to set writing goals for the next six months, Gemini. The energy may be difficult to work with, but, if you can keep an honest eye open, you'll be able to get a lot of clarity this week. You will be able to see how your closest relationships can grow to support your calling, and you'll be (perhaps painfully) aware of personal growth and shadow work that might serve as good fodder for a new project. The trick is to sit back and let insight come to you. Don't try to chase it down. If you are attentive, you'll get all the information you need.

Cancer This week has the potential to be an illuminating one for you, Cancer. If you keep your eyes open, you may see potential ways in which your approach to health and routine can grow to support your calling. At the same time, you may get some clarity around how some hard lessons (and more than a little garbage cleaning) in your intimate relationships was necessary weeding so your purpose in this life can grow. With this knowledge in hand, you'll be well-equipped for a fresh start with your calling later in the week.

Leo This week has the potential to help you see exactly why play is so important to your process. The lessons may be difficult to integrate, though, as long-term upheavals in your daily routine make it hard to see how to find a place for what you're learning in daily life. If you can figure out how to move forward, though, you're well-placed for a strong new beginning with publishing and a few weeks applying what you've learned to your writing practice. 

Virgo It's been a quiet few weeks for you on the writing front, Virgo, but this week this begins to change. There's still likely to be a lot of focus on the inner/shadow work you've had the opportunity to do, but the energy lightens up a little and becomes more playful this week. So, this is the time is right to start dipping your toe in the water and think about how you're going to take what you've learned and turn it into something publishable. 

Libra A view of the way forward comes from your closest relationships this week, Libra. If you have been stuck on a writing project, observing the people around you--and how they react to your true self--is likely to help you get unstuck. It may require facing your shadow, though, or thinking about things that have the potential to make you uncomfortable. But if you can face the truth, your writing has the potential to become more soulful and mature as a result.

Scorpio Playtime is over this week, Scorpio, and it's time to get back to work. You're well-equipped right now to see ways to restructure your daily routine to support the maturing of your craft that is necessary to radically transform the quality of your writing. If you can, try to treat this week like the beginning of a new year. The seeds of habits you plant now have the potential to really take root and reward you for your efforts six months from now.

Sagittarius You've been doing a lot of inner work lately, Sagg. Now it's time to come out of the dark and have some serious play time. It might be hard. You're still keenly aware of places in which you need to transform your skill-set, but you also have special access this week to your kind inner parent. If you can negotiate between the need to level up and the need to chill out, you'll be well-placed to begin a new creative cycle and have a more joyful next six months.

Capricorn It's been all writing hustle for you lately, Capricorn, but now the energy is changing. If you suddenly feel the need to withdraw and spend some serious time introspecting, you're right on time. If you can, set some time aside this week for day dreaming or thinking. If you have the courage to truly look within, you'll be better equipped to develop some new habits and routines to support your growth a few months from now.

Aquarius This week promises to be a great one for meeting your writing goals, Aquarius. If your goals are realistic and true to what is really important to you, you'll have easy access to the grit and determination needed go heads down and really get things done. If anything is going to get in your way, it's likely to be any deep wounding you're currently dealing with, but if you can find a way to deal with the things that are holding you back on the page (fresh new monster idea, maybe?), all the better.

Pisces Writing is on your mind this week, Pisces, and the best place to focus your attention is on developing the skills you need to fulfill your calling and get where you want to go as a writer. It may be difficult. Your relationship with your community and goals has been under construction (or more like demolition) for a long time, and this week that aspect of your life is likely to be right in front of your eyes, but if you can find a way to see the writer you're trying to become and write to that place, you'll be surprised by how much progress you can make.
