TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
The English language, my native tongue, doesn’t ascribe genders to its nouns. But many languages do. In Spanish, the phrase for “bridge” is puente, which is masculine. In German, “bridge” is Brücke, which is female. A blogger named Tickettome says this is the reason Spanish audio system could describe a bridge as sturdy or sturdy, whereas German audio system check with it as elegant or stunning. I encourage you to meditate on bridges that possess all the vary of qualities, together with the Spanish and German notions. In the approaching weeks, you’ll be sensible to construct new metaphorical bridges, repair bridges which are in disrepair, and extinguish fires on any bridges which are burning.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
Académie Française is a company dedicated to preserving the purity and integrity of the French language. One of its ongoing missions is to withstand the informal incorporation of English phrases, which the youthful technology of French individuals is inclined to do. Among anglicisms that don’t have the Académie’s approval: podcast, clickbait, chick-lit, deadline, hashtag, advertising and marketing, timelapse, and showrunner. The ban doesn’t cease anybody from utilizing the phrases, after all, however merely avoids giving them official recognition. I recognize the noble intentions of the Académie, however regard its campaign as a shedding battle that has minimal influence. In the approaching weeks, I counsel you to chorus from conduct that resembles the Académie’s. Resist the temptation of quixotic idealism. Be sensible and pragmatic. You Geminis usually thrive in environments that welcome idiosyncrasies, improvisation, informality, and experimentation—particularly now.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
Cancerian writer Vladimir Mayakovsky wrote a poem about how one morning he went half-mad and conversed with the solar. At first he known as the supreme radiance a “lazy clown,” complaining that it simply floated by the sky for hours whereas he, Mayakovsky, toiled diligently at his day job portray posters. Then he dared the solar to come back down and have tea with him, which, to his shock, the solar did. The poet was agitated and nervous—what if the shut method of the intense deity would show harmful? But the customer turned out to be pleasant. They had a nice dialog, and ultimately the solar promised to offer further inspiration for Mayakovsky’s future poetry. I invite you to strive one thing equally lyrical and daring, expensive Cancerian.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
I can’t perceive the self-help gurus who advise us to relentlessly dwell within the current second—to shed all consciousness of previous and future in order to give attention to the everlasting NOW. I imply, I recognize the worth of doing such an train every so often for just a few moments. I’ve tried it, and it’s usually rejuvenating. But it may also be downright silly to don’t have any ideas of yesterday and tomorrow. We want to guage how circumstances will evolve, based mostly on our earlier expertise and future projections. It could be a deadening, depleting act to attempt to strip ourselves of the wealthy historical past we’re at all times embedded in. In any case, Virgo, I counsel you to be completely conscious of your previous and future within the coming days. To achieve this will improve your intelligence and soulfulness in simply the appropriate methods to make good selections.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Psychotherapist and writer Clarissa Pinkola Estés poetically refers back to the supply of our creativity as “the river under the river.” It’s the deep primal vitality that “nourishes everything we make”—our “writing, painting, thinking, healing, doing, cooking, talking, smiling.” This river beneath the river doesn’t belong to any of us—is doubtlessly obtainable to all—but when harnessed appropriately it really works in very private methods, fueling our distinctive skills. I convey this to your consideration, Libra, since you’re near gaining considerable new entry to the ability of the river beneath the river.

I like to recommend it to you now, because it’s excessive time to wrangle and finagle with elements of your life story that must be alchemically remodeled and redeemed by your love and knowledge.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
In one in all his poems, Capricorn-born Kenneth Rexroth complains about having “a crooked guide on the twisted path of love.” But for my part, a crooked information is the most effective type. It’s unwise to have interaction the companies of a love confederate who’s at all times searching for the only, straightest route, or who imagines that intimate togetherness might be nourished with straightforward, apparent options. To domesticate essentially the most fascinating intimacy, we’d like influences that recognize nuance and complexity—that thrive on navigating the difficult riddles and unpredictable solutions. The subsequent eight weeks will probably be a wonderful time for you Capricorns to heed this recommendation.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Aquarian singer Etta James (1938–2012) gained six Grammy Awards and is within the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Grammy Hall of Fame, and Blues Hall of Fame.

It’s essential for the way forward for your therapeutic that you simply establish precisely what you’re sorry about.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
“Sometimes you win, sometimes you learn,” writes Piscean self-help writer John C. Maxwell. His assertion is helpful, nevertheless it harbors a problematic implication. It suggests you can expertise both successful or studying, however not each—that the one time you study is once you lose. I disagree with this presumption. In truth, I feel you’re now in a part when it’s potential and even probably so that you can each win and study.
