The One Magical Habit That Can Change Your Life

Every morning you prepare to meet a new day. The Earth has completed another rotation; the moon falls into deeper shadow; the seasons change.

Are your days slipping into a lackluster pattern? Monotony can be both comforting and mundane. But how do we know that our lives matter? How do we connect with our individual purpose? How do prevent ourselves from fading into complacency? The answer is by crafting personal rituals that evoke our highest self.

Feeling lost? Use this reading to find the way to a positive outcome!

Ritual is often disguised in the most ordinary of activities: brewing your coffee, making your bed, and brushing your teeth. Each of these daily exercises is performed to bring forth a desired result—to make you feel secure, revived, orderly, and refreshed. Just as you maintain your outer world through these familiar routines, you can likewise cultivate inner balance through a daily Tarot reading.

The art of Tarot reading is an illuminating and grounding way to begin each day. With the help of its steadfast characters and suits, Tarot cuts through the preconceived notions of our overly rational minds and illustrates our life’s path in the ancient language of symbols. Whether a deck is used purely on its own, or as a supplemental tool with one’s own dreams or journaling, over time tarot becomes a trusted guide and companion.

There are numerous ways to allow a Tarot reading to become a daily spiritual practice. Study various Tarot spreads and take note of which ones most resonate with you. Always conduct your ritual in a special space you have reserved for quiet reflection and invoking sacred energy. This can simply be a windowsill or corner with a few special objects that hold special meaning to you—a crystal, a stone, a feather, an image of a deity, photos of lost loved ones, or even a dried flower from a memorable day.

Once you are ready to begin, your personal ritual might look something like this: Light a candle and request the presence of the Divine. Acknowledge with gratitude the rising sun and the chance to start anew. Ask for protection around yourself and those you love. If you journal (which I highly recommend), take a few minutes to let your thoughts and dreams flow onto your pages. Now, open yourself to Divine presence and shuffle your deck. As you shuffle the cards, ask to be shown two cards: One card that depicts any obstacle you might face today and one card to show what solution may be used to overcome it. This is your lesson from above; this is today’s theme. Meditate on the images and let them rest on your altar throughout your day, if you wish. Continue to journal your first impressions from the cards and possible ways they may guide you today. Thank the Divine for Her guidance and also pray for wisdom and intuition to accompany you as you face your day. Close the practice with gratitude and blow out the candle.

Observing this simple rite on a regular basis will establish a beautiful rhythm to your days. Don’t be surprised if the Tarot cards repeat themselves until you have mastered a particular lesson, or if they seem to take on a lifelike energy of their own. You will find that the wisdom of the cards is just a reflection of your own, always ready to assist you on your journey, always making magic out of the mundane. —Jamie Richardson

I Did Everything Tarot Cards Told Me for a Week and Here’s What Happened

I Did Everything Tarot Cards Told Me for a Week and Here’s What Happened

I Did Everything Tarot Cards Told Me for a Week and Here’s What Happened

Everyone who has ever worked with Tarot deck knows they have personalities. Some Tarot decks are sweet, some are direct, and some are vague. I’ve worked with tarot for a few years now and my cards have to be the BOSSIEST cards out there. In-your-face blunt honest. Do I listen to my cards? No. Should I? Probably.

After a series of questionable life choices, I thought it might be helpful to call upon some otherworldly sources for guidance: my Tarot cards. So, I decided to listen to my Tarot cards for a whole week, following the advice without argument or reshuffling. Hey, they can’t do any worse!

The Rules: For this, I used my sassiest deck: The Kawaii Tarot by Diana Lopez. Do NOT be fooled dear readers, these cards may look sweet and innocent but are highly skilled at throwing shade.

I started my day with a one-card reading, asking for a piece of advice for the day. I also consulted my tarot whenever I had any decisions that I wanted a second opinion on.

Here’s what happened.

Day 1
Daily Card: The Star

the star tarot card

Interpretation: The Star means faith, hope, and positivity. I took it to mean: be still, things will get better. It’s the “hang in there, baby” of Tarot. I was very stressed before my reading so this comforted me. It’s also a card of patience, which is so not me.

How I took this advice: First, I took it to mean I should play “Faith” by George Michael as I got ready for the day, so it was already helping me make good choices. During the day when I got stressed about work, I meditated for a few minutes, visualizing what I wanted, knowing the universe wanted me to have it. It really boosted my mood and changed my mindset the rest of the day.

Day 2
Daily Card: 5 of Swords

Interpretation: I was wondering when I would get swords. I hate swords; swords mean conflict which I do not do well with; the 5 means change, which is something I also don’t do well with. This foreshadows conflict/change in a relationship. Don’t keep things bottled up. Be assertive! Take a stand!

Oh dear.

How I took this advice: I actually had a lot of unresolved issues with many people so narrowing down the list was a struggle. First, I thought of my ex who I had a nasty breakup with almost two years ago. Maybe it was time for healing?
Nope! Because when I asked if I should reach out to my ex I pulled two cards: The Devil, and The Tower (Reversed), which are the worst cards. The Devil is vice, addiction, and the Reversed Tower means holding onto a bad situation. Well played, Tarot.

So I thought about confronting a friend I was having issues with. I got the Emperor which is the bossy authority figure. That’s the one! I called him and we had a long conversation where I told him how I was feeling. Our relationship is different, but I’m healing.

Day 3
Daily Card: Page of Wands

page of wands

Interpretation: This card means learning about power, inspiration, or passion. Clearly my Tarot is telling me I needed to learn something new that day.

How I took the advice: I spent the day getting organized, career-wise. I read a few career-related articles, and learned how to write a decent cover letter. Knowledge is power!

Day 4
Daily Card: 6 of Cups

Interpretation: This card means nostalgia, old friendships, and connecting with the past. Cups and the number six are creative, so maybe I should look at things from a new angle?

How I took the advice: I decided to look at things from a different perspective and did creative work I didn’t normally do. I even wrote a poem. I treated myself with old childhood throwback: Coloring, to de-stress.

Day 5
Daily Card: 9 of Cups

nine of cups

Interpretation: This is one of my favorite cards in Tarot, not only because I connect to it (I’m a 9 life path) but it always gives the best news. 9 of cups means satisfaction, accomplishment, and indulgence; all things I enjoy.

How I took the advice: I did a LOT of online shopping. Hey, it’s the “Treat Yo Self” card. Plus, I asked my deck before I checked out if I can buy it, and I got yes after yes. So Tarot is the reason I shop (she lies to herself).

If you think I was being overdramatic in the beginning when I said my deck was sassy because it’s letting me color and buy clothes, don’t be fooled. Later I asked about the future of my relationship with this guy I’ve been talking to and drew the 7 of cups, which means illusion and fantasy. Please get me some Aloe, because I just got burned.

Day 6
Daily Card: Knight of Pentacles

Interpretation: This was a spooky experience. As I was shuffling my cards to do my morning reading my hands suddenly started shaking and my heart rate spiked as I rapidly shuffled my deck until I pulled out a card from the middle of the deck. It was the Knight of Pentacles, which is the responsibility card. Honestly, that was a really dramatic way to tell me to be more responsible. Chill, Tarot.

How I took the advice: Pentacles represent everyday actions, and since this is a card of patience and responsibility, it means I should get prepared for something coming in the next few weeks and months. So I got my finances in order (after my shopping “spree”), double checked that all my bills were paid, and finished most of my assignments for the week. I don’t know what’s coming, but I’m ready.

Day 7
Daily Card: 5 of Cups (Reverse)

five of cups

Interpretation: I felt it was sort of fitting that on the last day of the challenge, I got the “acceptance” card. 5 of Cups is also about moving on and letting go.

How I took the advice: As much as I hate confronting the past, I have a hard time letting go. It’s something I need to work on. I took the day to reflect on my goals, tried to center myself, and let go of negative energy.

When I started this project I didn’t think I was going to get much out of this, but I was wrong. This project made me reflect on emotions I hadn’t acknowledged. The deck was both comforting and honest. This was a great opportunity to analyze things and look from a different perspective. I enjoyed getting back into Tarot and plan to consult my cards more often. It might not predict the future, but it gives me the power to shape my mindset.

Embrace Your Power—5 Types of Witches and Witchcraft

Embrace Your Power—5 Types of Witches and Witchcraft

Witchcraft seems like a particularly buzzy topic these days, with books, blogs, and more delivering ancient magic to a modern audience. But while stylized Tarot cards and light-catching crystals have their place, the shift from intrigued observer to practicing pagan can be a daunting one. So why not start the process by determining which brand of witchery resonates with you?

Read on to learn about five specialized takes on witchcraft, where the variants came from, and which type of witchcraft resonates most with you.

Astrology

What is an astrologer? An astrologer, or cosmic witch, is a witch who uses planetary and celestial energy in their practice. They study and feel a personal and spiritual connection with not only the main planets in our solar system, but with asteroids, meteors, supernovas, stars, constellations, galaxies, and black holes. Cosmic witches pay particular attention to astrology, horoscopes, and zodiac signs—but that only gives us a picture of how the cosmic forces influence the individual. Cosmic witches are focused on how celestial energy influences the inner self, but also the world.

History: Cosmic witches have been around since the study of planets. According to the American Federation of Astrologers, the Babylonians are credited with the birth of astrology. They used their astrological charts to predict the “recurrence of seasons and certain celestial events.” Around 2000 B.C., Babylonian astrologers believed that the sun, moon, and the five known planets (Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto had yet to be discovered) all had distinct character traits (Mercury representing communication, Venus representing affection, and so on). Cosmic witches use these planetary traits to call upon their energy. For example, many witches choose to perform spells on a full moon because the full illumination can create an extra magical boost and enchantment—and the rock itself is said to align with emotions and the soul.

Modern cosmic witches: A present-day cosmic witch may not be using astrology to predict the weather, but rather to predict future events or influences. For example, it’s beneficial for a cosmic witch to know when Mercury is in retrograde, and in which sign, because it will allow them to determine where communication breakdowns will occur, and in what guise. If a cosmic which was planning to perform a love spell, their best chance of having it being successful during a new moon which corresponds with new beginnings and relationships.

Divination

What is a divination witch? A divination witch uses their magic to try to predict the future, often employing a variety of tools—or one that resonates. There are so many mediums with which to connect into the magic of the world: think Tarot cards, oracle cards, a pendulum, the I Ching, palmistry, and tasseography, and more.

History: Divination and divination witches have existed in just about every time period in history. In ancient Greece, divination witches were known as Oracles, and it was believed that deities spoke through them. A famous oracle was high priestess Pythia—known as the Oracle of Delphi—who was thought to be the mouthpiece of the god, Apollo. Every culture has its own form of divination. In ancient China, the diviner would carve out their question onto an ox bone until it cracked, and then the cracks were analyzed.

Modern divination witches: Today, divination witches don’t claim to be the mouthpiece of the gods; instead they use divination to predict likely answers to simple queries like, “Am I on the right career path?” or “Does this relationship stand a chance?” And in true modern fashion, divination methods like Tarot can even be found on our phones.

Herbalism

green witch

What is a green witch? A green witch works with magical properties found in the natural world. Their craft is based on respecting nature and all living things. Green witches focus on the magical correspondence of herbs, plants, and flowers. This incorporates herbalism, which is the study of botany and use of plants intended for medicinal purposes.

History: Herbalism is found in many cultures, but Chinese herbal medicine is one of the ancient variations still practiced today. Chinese herbology is based on the concepts of yin, yang, and Qi energy, where the herbs can either cool (yin) or stimulate (yang) certain parts of the body, the concept used for ritual and spiritual practices as well as medicinal. In parts of Africa, an herb known as purslane was used for purification during and after ritual ceremonies, while in some Scandinavian countries, clover was once used to ward off evils spirits and help develop psychic ability. In folk magic tradition, chamomile is said known to bring luck.

Modern green witches: Today, green witches still take herbal magic very seriously, using essential oils and creating small physic gardens in their own apartment. (You can find plenty of green witches on Instagram for inspo!) Be aware that this is a learned art: it’s extremely important to know the health effects of the herbs you plan to use or ingest as well as the magical benefits.

Kitchen Witch

kitchen

What is a kitchen witch? A kitchen witch practices magic within their own home. Their magic is not based on any divine power or spiritual guidance, but that magic that can be found in the everyday routine. Their craft comes out while cooking, baking, and nesting while tapping into the power of their own intention.

History: Witchcraft and cooking have always gone hand-in-hand. During the late 15th and mid-18th century many of the 200,000 witches (mostly women) were tortured, hanged, or burned at the stake were accused of poisoning food. Even now, our classic image of a witch persists as a woman stirring her cauldron. There has always been a magical and ritualistic nature surrounding food. Like green witchcraft, kitchen witches use herbalism in their food-based magic—but kitchen witchery isn’t just about food. It can also be making a homemade offering to a deity, cleansing and protection your home, and so on.

Water Witch

What is a water witch? A sea witch, also known as a water witch, works with the element water in order to tap into their magic. They feel a deep, powerful connection to the water—whether it is the ocean, sea, or lake. This powerful pull leads them to be more aware of their own mystical energies.

History: Sea witches have been found in many cultures throughout history. From the sea nymph Calypso of The Odyssey; Sycorax of Shakespeare’s play The Tempest; even Ursula in Disney’s The Little Mermaid. However, sea witches have a deeper history in mythology. In Norse mythology, sea witches were magical, malevolent feminine spirits who often took the form of mermaids. These witches believed that their power and bond over the sea and tides was born of their worship for the moon. The triple goddess symbol holds particularly deep meaning for sea witches, as it represents the three phases of the monthly lunar cycle: waxing, full, and waning.

Along with praying to the moon, sea witches have had a long history with practicing dowsing, a method of divination for finding water, metals, even gravesites underground by using a Y-shaped stick made of hazel. Dowsing has been around since the Middle Ages, used frequently in Europe until its association with witchcraft caused the practice to be shunned; its legitimacy as a science is still up for debate. 

Modern sea witches: Contemporary sea witches may not be luring sailors to their deaths, but they are still incorporating water, weather, and the moon into their practices, finding their own magical connection with the sea.

10 Simple Hacks to Bring More Magic Into Your Life

10 Simple Hacks to Bring More Magic Into Your Life

By Virginia Mason

10 Simple Hacks to Bring More Magic Into Your Life

Feeling stuck these days? The easiest way to get out of a rut is to reconnect with the energies around you. Magic is constantly present. In a universe that is always surprising us, where its origins and existence move in mysterious ways, everything is magic, and you’re a part of it! 

So keep connecting and keep the magic going each and every day with these lifestyle habits that can help you manifest the things you want faster than ever. (Hint: If you still want more magic in your life, check out these magical tools for your zodiac sign.)

1. Journal Your Dreams

When you sleep, you venture into an altered state of existence. Over the course of the average lifetime, this adds up to twenty-six years worth of experiences. Sure, sometimes dreams are just dreams. But sometimes, they’re more. By keeping a dream journal, you’ll able to decipher which dreams include messages and which ones don’t. As you write each morning, don’t worry about quality, length, or remembering every tiny detail. Just write, and the messages will come through once you find a trend.

2. Meditate, Meditate, Meditate

You don’t have to sit on a cushion to meditate. Meditate while doing the dishes, riding the subway, waiting in line, showering. Any mundane moment can turn into something magical. (Cancers supposedly benefit the most from this practice!) Not good at meditating? Here’s how: Slow down and breathe. Focus your attention on your breath. Focus your attention on your body and any movement you’re making. Tune into your physical senses in the moment rather than thinking about other moments in your mind. It’s okay to start thinking about things. Just let the thoughts keep on moving as you return your attention to your body. By bringing meditation into your life, you will rewire your brain to strengthen your connection to the present moment and the true nature of reality. This is where magic lives.

3. Get Outside and Go for a Walk

Take yourself for a walk each and every day. It doesn’t have to be long a walk. It can last just a few minutes, but getting outside will get you out of your head. By doing this, you free yourself from the grind. This helps you remember just how free you truly are.

4. Keep Your Phone Away From Your Bed

Is your phone the first thing you see in the morning and the last thing you see at night? If so, turn it to do not disturb, and move that thing away! Give yourself time to exist without the nagging sound of alerts and the nagging mental chatter of wondering how many likes you just got. This is a hard habit to break so try investing in an old-fashioned alarm clock so you can keep your phone elsewhere in the house. 

5. Make Your Space Smell Good

Smell is one of the most powerful senses, and when the right scent is paired with the right zodiac sign, magic truly happens. You can spread scents throughout your home with incenses or by burning sacred herbs like sage. You can also use essential oils in a diffuser to spread your favorite scent throughout your space. Select the scent that will give you whatever it is you want help with. Want to relax? Go for lavender or earthy scents. Want to wake up? Try peppermint or citrus scents. Want to feel regal? Go for rose. But ultimately, choose what makes you happy. Notice how different scents make you feel. And for even easier smell boosts, hang eucalyptus over your shower head or just boil some cinnamon sticks on the stove. You’ll be smelling the effects in no time.

6. Talk to Plants and Animals

Connecting to plants and animals helps you remember that we’re all intertwined. You may feel silly talking to them, you may think they don’t understand, but just because they don’t know your language doesn’t mean they lack understanding. You’re still giving off energy vibrations that they can feel. Some of them will want nothing to do with you. Others will embrace you with excitement. By strengthening your connection to plants and animals, you strengthen your connection to everything, and you gain a greater appreciation for your role in the whole wide world.

7. Dance Yourself Awake

No matter how you feel in the morning, the moment you turn the volume up on one of your favorite songs, it’s hard to keep your body from moving to the beat. So let it move. Not only does get your blood flowing, it gets your soul flowing. By fully expressing yourself this way first thing in the morning, you set the tone for the rest of the day—ready to accept the good things! 

8. Pull a Card

Take a few minutes each day to pull just one Tarot or oracle card. Through this, you strengthen your connection to the universe and train yourself to notice signs. This daily ritual keeps you engaged. Tarot requires practice to interpret, but oracle decks are great because they often have the message written directly on them. If you’re new to cards, get yourself an oracle deck or start by having a professional read your cards. If you want to work with tarot and don’t have a deck (and don’t want to spend money), ask the universe to send you one.

9. Turn Off the Lights

Electric lighting disconnects us from the natural cycle of day and night. It disconnects us from nature and the universe. So one hour before bed, turn off all your electric lights and opt for candles instead. By keeping your space darker, it’ll be easier to get a good night’s sleep. It’ll also add some magic and romance to every evening. You can live by the light of a fireplace or play with placing candles throughout your home or try a scented candle for another easy way to work with smell. Keep one candle on your nightstand, and every night before you go to sleep, make a wish as you blow it out. Get to know the darkness and become comfortable in it.

https://www.instagram.com/p/BRpCixFAC-i/

10. Massage Your Hands and Feet

With your lights turned out and candles burning, wash your feet. Weird? A little. Magical? Yes—and here’s why. Your hands and feet work so hard every day to keep you going. You’re using them constantly. Now’s your time to treat yourself, to love yourself, and to say thank you. So wash those tootsies, massage them with a relaxed-smelling lotion or oil, move up your calves and in between your toes. Do this all while thanking them for their service as a way to reconnect with your bodily form.

Your Weekly Horoscope for October 15 to 22: Go Deep. No, Deeper.

Your Weekly Horoscope for October 15 to 22: Go Deep. No, Deeper.

By Horoscope.com

On October 15, 2017

In Aspect, Relationship, Spirit

Your Weekly Horoscope for October 15 to 22: Go Deep. No, Deeper.

The stars bring huge changes in the month ahead. Get the full scoop with your premium October horoscope!

Ready to go deep? This is the week to do it.The stars are asking you to turn inward, do some introspection, and sort out what you want. Next week, the sun moves into moody, intense Scorpio, signifying a deeper, richer, more passionate phase in your life. You’re likely to feel rumblings of this change in the week ahead, and don’t be surprised if encounters are more passionate than usual. This isn’t a bad thing. Passion drives change. The stars are asking you this week to tune in and honor your emotions—the more you feel, the more you manifest change. Here, what else to look forward to (and watch out for) this week!

Aries Weekly Horoscope 
Expansive Jupiter is in your sector of transformation, and change not only seems possible, it seems inspiring. This is a great week to consider a physical shift—whether it’s a new haircut or trying a new look, you’ll be surprised by how the new look cranks up your confidence. But you’re also thinking longterm change—and Rams are always ready to take a leap, but the stars say that you’ve got time. Hold your horses, and now that if the move is right, it’ll still be right a week, a month, or even a year from now. Jupiter stays in this sector until next November, so you’ve got time. Baby steps will still get you where you want to be—promise. 

Taurus Weekly Horoscope    
An aspect in your relationship sector has love, like and everything in between on your radar this week, Bulls. Here’s the thing: In order to get what you want (and you know what that is) you’ve got to simultaneously be honest and tactful. It’s all about walking in the other person’s shoes. What do they want? And how can you partner with each other’s desires so everyone is happy? Meanwhile, expanding your social circle could be a smart move this week—you’ve been pretty driven on one goal in the past few weeks, but taking a bigger picture focus on your life (and balance within it) will pay off. 

Is love in your stars?

Gemini Weekly Horoscope    
With frisky Venus in your leisure zone, romance is everywhere, and it is hot, hot, hot. In the next few days, the universe is giving you the gift of the moment—truly everything is where it should be. The only thing getting in the way is yourself. Stop thinking about the past and the future, and as much as possible, pay attention to the moment. Put your phone down or keep it home for the day. It’s all about connection, baby! And on that note, how deeply connected are you to you? With Mercury, your guide planet, about to enter Scorpio, it’s the ideal time to focus on a long dormant goal or plan. You got this! 

Cancer Weekly Horoscope
With sociable Venus in your home and family sector, Crabs are all about connecting this week. It’s a great week for turning inward and having long conversations about the meaning of life and love with BFFs. But any long and meandering conversation must be followed by a plan of action. Don’t get too caught up in talk. And on that note, get out of your shell a little more this week. Yes, Netflix and takeout are divine, but even more fun with a friend! Extending invites is key this week. 

Leo Weekly Horoscope
Optimistic Jupiter and chatty Mercury are in your home zone, and you’re all about shaking things up at the casa. Maybe it’s finding a new place, moving in with a new roomie or partner, or even considering buying a pad. But while lions are all about taking action, the cosmos say that examining all options are key. You may overlook an issue in your haste to make something happen. You’re also in the prime place to network. The word sounds daunting, but really, it’s just about striking up conversations—talk to that stranger! You won’t know where the connection will lead until you take that first step.

Virgo Weekly Horoscope 
Finances, fun? Maybe not, but this week, you’re finding all sorts of inspiration in your financial sector. Maybe you’re exploring a promotion, cranking up your side hustle, or making steps for obtaining a more secure financial future. Whatever it is, you’re feeling buoyed by possibility and are actually finding the more you know about your money, the more confident you feel in your power to make it. Virgo, you can sometimes be idealistic when it comes to cash flow, believing “everything will work out.” And for you, it usually does. But this week, you’re realizing that taking a detailed look at what you’ve got and what you want will only make you feel more flush. 

Libra Weekly Horoscope 
Lovely Venus (your planet) is in your sign, and you’re pretty unstoppable, Libra! Ride that wave. You’re naturally charming everyone who crosses your path, and are finding tasks to be more effortless than they’ve felt in a really long time. Don’t take this period for granted. Yes, go with the flow and enjoy (you’ve earned it!) but also know this is the prime time to make the moves you want to get the life you want. Set up that meeting. Make the first move to arrange a date. Bring up that hard conversation. The more you work this week, the more the week will give back to you. 

Scorpio Weekly Horoscope 
With lucky Jupiter in your sign, you’re feeling pretty unstoppable in the week gearing up to your birthday month, Scorpio! You’ve had a pessimistic streak these past few months, but now, you’re feeling some internal optimism. Overall, this attitude shift is helping you manifest latent desires and get things done. But here’s the thing: You can’t ignore your past, and issues will come back to haunt you. Addressing some past issues, insecurities, or concerns will only make you more unstoppable. (Unsure of how to start? Read How a Life Coach Can Help You Find Your Purpose!)

Sagittarius Weekly Horoscope 
Sweet dreams, Sags! With Jupiter in a secluded sector of your chart, your subconscious is working overtime, giving you some pretty intense dreams that provide clues into what’s going on (and what you need to do) in your real life. Pay attention to those clues—they can give you a powerful and accurate road map for next steps you need to take. But don’t go 100% hermit. With the new moon in your social sector, make sure to go out, meet new people, and say yes to events you may not have in the past. As your dreams most likely have told you, you need a shakeup, and you’re going to get it by connecting to others. 

Capricorn Weekly Horoscope 
You are charming AF, Caps, thanks to lovely Venus. Work it! You tend to be serious and introspective, but this is a great week to give in to whimsy. Try something new. Say yes to a lunch away from your desk. Forget about your evening routine. The more you follow your gut and do what you want—not what your schedule dictates—the more doors will open up for you. The new moon on Thursday opens up a pretty key door, either for a new relationship, business opportunity, or social plan, but you’ve got to be open to it for it to manifest. If you seem like you’re too caught up in your daily to-do list, it just won’t happen.

Aquarius Weekly Horoscope 
The universe is asking you to roll up your sleeves and get to work. Are you ready? Optimistic Jupiter is driving your ambition, but you have to be realistic and know you may have a few overbooked days in your future. The good news: They won’t feel like a sacrifice. For now, this week is a prime time to make sure your personal care is on point—the healthier you feel, the better you’ll handle the challenges Jupiter will throw your way. It’s a great week to commit to trying the gym, eating healthier, or going to bed on time. (Need inspiration? Read The Perfect Workout for Your Zodiac Sign.)

Pisces Weekly Horoscope 
You’ve got major wanderlust, Pisces. Book that ticket! But before you go, ask yourself the key question: Are you running toward something you want or away from something you don’t? That key question will determine next steps and moves. Meanwhile, even if a ticket to a far-flung location isn’t in the cards, the universe is making it clear that it wants you to expand your horizons. Whether it’s taking a class, reading a book, or otherwise engaging with the world in a new way, doing so is essential for feeding your soul this week. Fish may be especially drawn to crystals this week, which can help manifest the goals and dreams you already have brewing.

Seeking Answers? An Oracle Deck May Be the Key

The Tarot can be an incredibly powerful tool, capable of providing clarity for questions big (where is my life going) and small (should I go out or watch Netflix tonight) It’s all encompassing, and that’s why it’s awesome. But sometimes, you want a specific reading about a certain aspect of your life. And in that case, you turn to an oracle card deck. What is an oracle card deck? While an oracle deck is  similar to tarot, with characters, meanings, and archetypes, an oracle deck varies in the number of cards it contains, and may focus on one specific aspect of life, such as love, luck, or chance. Oracle decks can be incredibly intricate and artistic, and many tarot readers go back and forth with both, depending on what questions they’re being asked.

Think of the tarot deck like the grocery store—you go there for everything, right? An oracle deck is like a specialized store or cafe—you swing by when you’re craving one specific thing. Here, some oracle decks to experiment with, read from, and rely on!

8 Oracle Decks Every Seeker Should Try 

1. Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards, $15
Oracle card expert artist Doreen Virtue creates a 44 card deck of goddess-inspired wisdom, perfect for anyone who needs to tap into her (or his) feminine energy. 

2. Postcards From Spirit, $11
Designed to directly help you connect with spirits (including your own inner voice) this deck, designed by Colette Baron-Reid, is a 52-card deck with each card a direct “message” from the spirit you invoke.

3. Compendium of Constellations Oracle Deck, $57
Designed to be read intuitively, this 90 card deck connects you to the constellations and helps you tune into their rhythms and lets you listen to their guidance. 

4. Vessel Oracle Deck, $38
Bright, whimsical, and a favorite of Horoscope.com’s Spirit Goddess Gala Darling, this 35 card deck has easy to understand, highly intuitive themes that are great for everyday readings. We also adore the cheerful pink color—a reminder that oracle decks can be fun and whimsical as well as being accurate!

5. The Every Day Oracle Deck, $25
Gorgeous paintings help you tune into nature and your animal archetypes in this 56 card deck by artist Jia Apple. This deck is ideal for earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) who find their deepest meaning through the rhythms and connection to the land. 

6. The Bone Oracle Deck, $25
Inspired by the Day of the Dead, this 28 card deck by artist Megan Weber celebrates life, death, and the interconnectedness of both, and is a great one to reflect on during life changes, as well as changing seasons.

7. The SoulSpace Oracle Deck, $50
Gorgeous watercolors by artist Jen Berlingo adorn each of the 60 cards in this deck, which is designed to tap into your subconscious. This deck works well for air signs, whose imagination connects with the abstract images on the cards.

8. Earth Magic Oracle Deck, $9
This 48-card deck taps into the rhythms and archetypes of the earth, and is a great deck to use in the winter months, when you may be going from enclosed space to enclosed space and feel removed from the elements!

Your Weekly Horoscope for October 8-15, 2017: Write Your Own Story

In Future, Horoscope, Spirit

Your Weekly Horoscope for October 8-15, 2017: Write Your Own Story

The stars bring huge changes in the month ahead. Get the full scoop with your premium October horoscope!

Brace yourself, especially on Monday. As the cheery sun and upbeat Mercury angle toward passionate Pluto, misunderstandings could occur, and a work situation or meeting could include a critical conversation. All signs will have to think fast on their feet and be willing to easily pivot, listen to other people’s concerns, and be able to speak up for themselves. It’s an all-zodiac-signs-for-themselves type of week. While it’s easy to get caught up in that jockeying, intense energy, try to step back. The ship isn’t sinking. The lifeboats have room for everyone. And the more calmly you can walk through the week, the better. So relax, do yoga, breathe, and know that this week does not define your future—you do.

Aries Weekly Horoscope 
Empathy will guide you through the beginning of the week, Rams, especially when you try to get someone to see your side of a situation. On Tuesday, lucky Jupiter enters your sector of transformation, and the sky is the limit. But again, the old question comes up: What do you want to do with your life, and how will you get there? The more soul searching you do this week, the better positioned you’ll be for the future. But as the Thursday harvest moon in your sign ignites your energies, you’re prone to distraction, and may find yourself caught up in a flirtation session. If you’re attached, be cautious. Single? Before you make a move, know exactly what you want out of the situation, and proceed from there. 

Taurus Weekly Horoscope    
Bulls have been hard on themselves on and off all summer, and the trend is continuing this fall. Ask yourself: What opportunities are you missing? What’s holding you back? Confront the fear—ignoring it just isn’t working. As optimistic and expansive Jupiter moves into your sector of relating at the end of the week, it’s a great time to enlist friends and mentors to help you build yourself up. And if one area of your life is frustrating you, don’t focus on it! The harvest full moon from last week still adds extra oomph to your sex life; time to schedule a date night?

Is love in your stars?

Gemini Weekly Horoscope    
You’re putting a ton of pressure on yourself, and the more stressed you are, the less accomplished you feel. It’s a vicious cycle, right? So what’s the answer? The gym is one sanctuary; having sex (with someone you love!) is another. But Gemini, it’s also time to stop blaming other people or past situations for where you are right now. The more embroiled you get in the what if, the harder it is to manifest the what’s next. This week, as lucky Jupiter moves into Scorpio, let go, and get excited about what’s next, because it will be so, so good. 

Cancer Weekly Horoscope
Finally, Crabs are getting a break! Expansive Jupiter moves into your leisure sector on Tuesday, and it’s giving you Friday vibes. Roll with them. You tend to hold yourself to pretty high standards, but what happens when you just let go and let certain things clise a bit? You may find that people are much more forgiving than you are. This week is all about play—do something fun, meet someone new, and see what happens when you live life past your expectations. Remember, relaxing is pretty damn important and you’re going to likely find that you’ll be even more productive after doing “nothing” for a few hours. 

Leo Weekly Horoscope
You’re stressed by a few situations beyond your control, but it’s so important to step back and see big picture, Lions. Whatever the situation is, obsessing about it and talking about it is getting in the way from your own enjoyment and productivity. As Jupiter enters your home and family sector on Tuesday, it’s a good time to take stock of what (and who) you have in your life. Someone in your family needs your support—reach out, especially to the people you may not have spoken with recently. Jupiter will stay there for a year, and it may be a great time to shift your focus to this part of your life—what do you want your home life to look like a year from now? Big changes could be on the horizon—the universe is just waiting for you to make your move. 

Virgo Weekly Horoscope 
You’ve been committed to trying to change a friend or family member’s mind, but let it go—at least for now. It’s not that they aren’t listening, it’s just that they need a little bit of time. This coming weekend may be the best time to revisit that covnersation. As expansive Jupiter moves into your sector of networking and communication on Tuesday, it’s a great time to focus on your career—where you are, where you want to be, and what’s holding you back. It’s here for the next year, so no rush, but it’s a really good time to set a big, expansive, scary goal: The universe has your back and you can achieve it within a a year, if you want it. 

Libra Weekly Horoscope 
You’re a master negotiator, but this week is a great time to step back, observe, and listen rather than trying to persuade. Patience wins the day, and you’re also going to get a lot of intel you need in the process. On Tuesday, optimistic Jupiter moves into your financial sector. It’s there for a year, and you may notice a big boost and positive changes upfront, within the first week. This is awesome! Don’t get too cocky and be cautious about big-ticket purchases. If the money isn’t in your account, you can’t afford it yet. But you will down the line. The more you can separate emotions from money, the better you’ll be—deep breaths and second (or third) check-ins with yourself before you buy. 

Scorpio Weekly Horoscope 
Woosh. That’s the sound of you breathing a huge sigh of relief. It’s been an intense few weeks, but on Tuesday, Jupiter enters your sign for a yearlong stay. This is what you’ve been waiting for and working toward for months, and you may feel overwhelmed with just how easy things seem. Conversations and opportunities flow toward you, and your only difficulty is prioritizing what and who is most important of all the people and prospects you want a piece of you. Remember to pencil in some time for yourself—it’s essential. And arguments, which may manifest as jealousy, will come up. You’re great at being combative, but this is a year to really experiment with empathy—it’ll only get you farther. 

Tired of being alone? See what’s in the cards with a free tarot Love Reading.  

Sagittarius Weekly Horoscope 
Deep thoughts abound this week, as Jupiter shifts signs. Your personal planet, expansive Jupiter is telling you to ask yourself the hard questions this year, as it moves to your spiritual sector for a twelve-month stay. Archers may be tempted to cast aside these questions and thoughts, but they would do well to really consider them, sit with them, and follow them down the paths they lead. A life coach or mentor can be extremely helpful. Figure out whose life you like and what lessons you can learn. The lessons the universe is posing to you are ones that should not be gone through alone—the more people in you corner, the better.

Capricorn Weekly Horoscope 
The beginning of the week is stress city, Caps, as you clash with someone important to you. This is due to a few conflicting aspects scattered across your sign; as much as you can, delay any arguments, keep to yourself, and know that things will settle with very little movement on your side if you play it cool. An intense argument could take weeks to untangle. Luckily, Jupiter moves into your social sector on Tuesday—a shift that will elevate your social life, will rekindle old connections, and will remind you of the importance of the ties you have with other people. The more connections you make, the happier you’ll be. It may be a pain to set up dates and meetups, but do so whenever possible this week; it will actually lower your stress. 

Aquarius Weekly Horoscope 
This is your year, Aquarius! You’ve had a lot of big, bold, plans you’ve put on the backburner because of schedules, commitment, life! But as confident Jupiter enters your sector of career and ambition on Tuesday, now’s the time to cast aside the excuses, doubts, and delays and just follow your gut and get it done. You need a workable plan, and you need a partner to keep you accountable. You also need to believe in the power of tiny steps—the sky’s the limit, even if you only have 10 minutes a day for your passion project. Finally, don’t let excitement cross the line to arrogance—people want to be on your side, but you can’t dictate the ways in which they will support you. 

Pisces Weekly Horoscope 
The beginning of the week may start with a major fallout with a friend. While it may seem the two of you have no middle ground, think again. A confusing blend of aspects may make it tough to talk it out—just wait for things to settle rather than getting caught up in a war of right or wrong. Luckily, the universe sets up a prime distraction: Jupiter enters your sector of far horizons on Tuesday. You may automatically see an uptick of travel opportunities or may find yourself captivated by a foreign stranger or situation. Remember, it’s a whole big world out there, and there’s a place for you in it!

Get a map to your future, with a free psychic reading.

As Libra season begins, the planets urge you to take a leap forward—especially if you’ve been stalling. Last month, Practical, ambitious Virgo gave you the tools and knowledge you needed to take important steps. You may not have all the details worked out, you may be second guessing yourself, but trust that the planets and stars are telling you to make further moves now; balanced Libra will help you work out what they are in the days ahead. During the week, a new person, idea, of offer may appear enticing, but the stars encourage you to consider all options. Finally, look forward to the weekend! Your ambition is through the roof, and it may be wise to just this once set aside some time to do some work or invite coworkers to a party—your work life will have a powerful impact on your personal life in the upcoming weeks. 

Aries Weekly Horoscope 
Balanced Libra asks you to take a hard look at your relationship (or your pursuit of one). Has spending time with your favorite plus-one overtaken other parts of your life? If so, then take a step back and recalibrate. Take the week and find a pocket of time where you can do something solo—reconnecting with yourself can help you remember some essential truths about who you are. The week ahead can be especially confusing, with conflicting information coming at you in all directions. While you may feel like you have to act now, remember: Taking the time to consider a decision is a decision. 

Taurus Weekly Horoscope    
Feel that stirring energy rising from your chest to your stomach? That, Bulls, is your call to action! You’ve been tentative all summer, putting off plans, but now is the time to move, move, move. Change is scary, but think about it: What do you lose if you don’t take a risk? Right now, what you need is a dose of courage. How to find it: Hang out with friends who have your back and can remind you how awesome you are. Pump up your adrenaline with a trip to the gym. Listen to a Spotify playlist on repeat. Finally, stop thinking and just do it—once you do, you’ll be amazed at what’s on the other side of that fear.

Is love in your stars?

Gemini Weekly Horoscope    
Open your eyes, Gemini: The universe is trying to teach you a lesson, and it may not come in the format you would expect. Put your phone down, take your earbuds off, and listen to conversations around you this week. You’re likely feeling in between a few different decisions or choices, and part of the process in searching for clarity is picking up on subconscious clues whispered by the universe. While you’re ready to embrace something fresh and different, prudence in the upcoming days is essential. You’ve got time on your side, and a too-quick decision could come back to haunt you. 

Cancer Weekly Horoscope
Admit it, Crabs, you’ve been feeling a little stuck. Right now, your focus is on all the things that aren’t working in your life. First, take a step back and take stock of what is—whether it’s your great group of friends or your commitment to hitting the gym, balanced Libra is reminding you that a shift in perspective is essential in making lasting change. Second, the stars say that something could change in your work environment—but you have to lead the charge for it to happen. To begin, ask yourself what would make your work life more enjoyable. It may be a more simple answer than you think. And regardless of what you think, consider adding a plant to your workspace, if you can. Bringing some of the outdoors inside will do wonders for your mood. 

Leo Weekly Horoscope
This week, Lions are likely to meet someone who could have a profound impact on their life going forward. The trick is to actually figure out who that person is, and to do that, Lions are going to have to go deeper than they normally do. While Leo is adept at having surface-level conversations with a variety of strangers, the stars say that you may need some one-on-one time to figure out what lessons this person is trying to teach you. Finally, it’s time to rethink priorities. You’ve been burning the candle at both ends, but doing that forever is unrealistic and will only make you exhausted. Time to figure out what you don’t need to do in order to be happy,

Virgo Weekly Horoscope 
Expansive Jupiter and innovative Uranus intersect right in your financial sector. What this means: You’re ready to make money. Whether it’s starting up a business, cranking up your side hustle, or finding yourself getting bonuses at your job, the sky’s the limit. And while you’re feeling confident, don’t get cocky—and don’t spend anything until it’s safely in your bank account. Want to make even more? Suss out what, exactly, you’re working for. The more passionate you are about a goal, the more money you’ll make. Enjoy the abundance! 

Libra Weekly Horoscope 
Romantic possibilities swirl around you this week. Great news if you’re single; tricky if you’re attached. Your flirt game is on point, but if you’re not looking, someone may misunderstand your intentions. It’s also so important to be honest about what you want and what you’re looking for. While compliments can be addictive, they mean so much more when they’re coming from someone you genuinely like. Finally, be careful what you say. You may be caught up in the moment, which can lead to tricky misunderstandings to untangle down the road. 

Scorpio Weekly Horoscope 
You finally clear the air on an issue that’s been bothering you for the past few weeks. While the conversation itself may be stressful, the relief you feel will be palpable. Getting past this issue also frees your mind to focus on something new. It’s a great time to consider shaking up your daily routine—perhaps trying a new gym class, or listening to a podcast you haven’t heard before. It may be a minor tweak, but trust that the change can help you maximize your full potential. 

Tired of being alone? See what’s in the cards with a free tarot Love Reading.  

Sagittarius Weekly Horoscope 
Oh wow, Archers—love is in the air, and it is good. In the next few days, expensive Jupiter, your personal planet, links with revolutionary Uranus, casting a spotlight on a person you may not have considered as a potential love interest. Attached? You may discover something (good!) about your partner that you never knew before. Bottom line: Libra, the sign of partnership, wants you to tune into your relationship potential. You’re always independent, but it’s okay to ask for help, do things together, and otherwise go through the world as a couple. 

Capricorn Weekly Horoscope 
The family tension is high, and you’ve just about reached your breaking point. First off, deep breath. The best thing you can do is take some time to destress before you explode. Second, it may be time to have that conversation you’ve been avoiding. You may be worried about hurt feelings or burned bridges, but trust that things will only get worse if you don’t let people know what’s bothering you. Finally, a reminder: You are not your family. Reclaiming your independence and realizing how you differ can give you some space to assert yourself. 

Aquarius Weekly Horoscope 
As dynamic Jupiter links to inventive Uranus, you’re on fire! Your brain is moving a million miles a minute, and you have so much to do, say, invent, and explore. It’s awesome! Remember: Ideas are more powerful when you share them. Inviting others to share your ideas not only will help you when your enthusiasm flags later this month, it can also help you actually get your idea off the ground. Also, consider becoming friends with your coworkers—you sometimes seem aloof, but right now, the stars say a bit more comingling of your work life and personal life could be a great thing. 

Pisces Weekly Horoscope 
You are so ready to take a leap! And you should—but remember, sometimes five small steps can be just as fast, effective, and smooth as one jump. In other words, take the risk, but break it up into a few different actions, so you aren’t doing everything all at once, you have everything accounted for, and if an issue does arise, you can quickly change course. What’s the big rush? The slower you go, the more effective you may be. Trust that things will work out—but hurrying things can backfire.

How Every Sign Can Feel Better, Right Now (Crystals Optional!)

How Every Sign Can Feel Better, Right Now (Crystals Optional!)

By Shereen Campbell

On September 18, 2017

In Dream, Element, Spirit

How Every Sign Can Feel Better, Right Now (Crystals Optional!)

Some days you just need a little ritual to get your oomph back!  It could be you had a rough day and aren’t feeling yourself. Or, maybe you just have something really special that you want to manifest, and you need an energy boost so you can make it happen! Either way, we’ve got you. These rituals, arranged by sign, can help you tune into your heart, check out from the world at large (it’ll still be there when you get back!), and emerge ready to achieve your goals. Psst: For added effect, add a crystal to your routine to amplify your intentions. Try these rituals now, and try them during the new moon in Virgo on Tuesday, September 19, for even more power. 

Aries Feel Better Ritual 
When you feel like you need to get your manifestation powers popping, Aries, the first step is to get your blood flowing.You are at your peak when you are out there being active, releasing your energy, so it doesn’t get bottled up. Feel free to throw on your favorite red gym outfit, and hit the treadmill or boxing bag. Once you feel good and exhausted, it’s time to do the soul work! Hit your yoga mat for some relaxation.  Lay down, put a carnelian (or any red stone) on your solar plexus (by your belly button) and breathe deeply.  Repeat the phrase, “I am” over and over until you feel your stresses of the world leave you.

Taurus Feel Better Ritual
Boy, do you hate being uncomfortable, Taurus!  If you’re feeling like too many things are happening outside of your control, it means it’s time for some self-centering! Turn on some calming music and make yourself a healthy meal. It sounds simple but you need to use those hands and create something beautiful and tasty sometimes to calm your nerves. Once you’re good and full, lie down, put a rose quartz crystal on your sacral chakra (above your groin) and breathe deeply, love. Make a mental list of all things you have starting with the phrase “I have” until you return to a place a gratitude.  The universe has your back, and this serves to remind you of just that.

Reveal your secret talents with a numerological portrait.


Gemini Feel Better Ritual      

Ever suffer from information overload, dear Gemini? Your mind is always buzzing at the speed of light, and sometimes you just need it to stop! Well, meditation might just been created just for you.  Don’t worry, it doesn’t have to be as boring as it sounds. Try out a guided meditation so you can slow your speedy thoughts down and focus them on what you hope to accomplish. Add a little extra juice to this by sitting with a piece of jade by your root chakra. Your go to phrase is “I Think,” and yes, you think a lot, so you can create a lot. Just gotta learn to focus all that thinking!

 
Cancer Feel Better Ritual
They call you sensitive for a reason, Cancer, and ain’t nothing wrong with that! You are sensitive, and it is a gift to hold on to tightly. You feel everyone’s vibes and are able to nurture even the most stubborn soul into peace. In order to keep this gift flowing, though, you need to make sure you make some time to give yourself the same type of loving.  Spending some time alone is the ultimate cure, as it allows you clear out any energy that does not belong to you. A long, hot shower followed by a hot tea and a walk will do you wonders. Try placing a moonstone by your root chakra (at the base of your spine), and listen to the sound of the ocean during meditation for an extra boost.

What color is your aura, and where is it leading you? Ask the Chakra Tarot….
 

Leo Feel Better Ritual
Feel yourself taking things a little too personally, Leo? Never fear, just dance. Yes, dance or do anything that requires fun and laughter. You have the tendency to take on the issues of all those around you, and sometimes you need to let it all go and let the universe take the lead. The best way for you to forget your worries is to dance like you ain’t got no worries! Lock your bedroom door, turn on your favorite tunes, and get your boogie on. Once you are all danced out, lie down and place some citrine on your sacral chakra (just below your belly button) and breathe deeply. Feel free to end the night with your favorite comedy. Laughter is great for the soul!

 
Virgo Feel Better Ritual
Everything cannot be perfect all the time, which we know is a hard pill for you to swallow, Virgo. but the imperfections in life are what makes it so darn magical. When you need to get out of your mind, to take a break a from all your analyzing (and overanalyzing), here’s what you can do. Clean! Pick a part of your house and scrub it down. Imagine as you are scrubbing, that you are also cleansing your mind of worries and stress. Once it’s good and shiny, take yourself a long bath preferably with some exotic herbs and oils. While you’re at it, put a red jasper crystal on your solar plexus and breathe deeply.  You’ll get out of the tub feeling clear and clean!

Need an instant answer to a tough question? This Tarot deck has it.

 
Libra Feel Better Ritual
Ever feel like you are being pulled in opposite directions, and you just can’t find a fair solution, Libra? Sounds like it’s time for a little self loving! Funny enough, the sight of beauty is incredibly calming for you. Treat yourself to a me day with the goal of surrounding yourself with as much beauty as you can find. Visit a museum or window shop. Buy yourself some flowers and have a nice dinner. End the day with a long bath and a meditation with a rose quartz on your heart chakra. Imagine the crystal sucking up any blocks you have so can approach all future decision from your heart.

 
Scorpio Feel Better Ritual
Admit it, Scorpio, sometimes you get a little too obsessive. It’s okay, it’s in your nature. Scorpios are deep thinkers and love to get the bottom of everything, understanding whatever it is far deeper than most signs have the patience for. However, you can get so stuck in your mind that you forget your body, and sometimes you need a little help breaking free. The cure? Pamper yourself. Go get a massage, mani/pedi, haircut or just have sex (solo sex included)—anything to get back into your body. Meditation can also help to calm you, so feel free to add an amethyst over your throat chakra to bring it to the next level.

 
Learn about your animal sign with the wisdom of Chinese astrology.

 
Sagittarius Feel Better Ritual
You know you need a little boost, Sagittarius! You are the life of the party, meeting and greeting everyone you can, and sometimes you take on so much responsibility that you end up a little worn down. The fix? Learn something new! Start a new book or take a class. This will feed your exploratory desires, but won’t create too much additional responsibility for you. It will also give you some down time from the usual crew, and a chance to not worry about others. A good meditation session with a piece of turquoise positioned above your crown could also do wonders.

Capricorn Feel Better Ritual
If you are feeling overwhelmed by all of the deadlines you must meet to accomplish your desires, Capricorn, it might be time for a little self love break. Yes, this means take a break from work. We promise it will not ruin your life. Take some time to explore nature. Go on a hike, do some outdoor yoga, or just go hug a freaking tree. You are an earth sign, and interacting with the earth will calm you. If you make it outside, a garnet crystal is a good companion! Position it at your crown chakra while you lay in meditation for an extra boost.

Where is your love life headed? Get two valuable perspectives.
 

Aquarius Feel Better Ritual 
Sometimes your superhero cape needs to be washed, Aquarius. We know you are busy trying to save the world, as you are the humanitarian of the zodiac, but even superheroes need naps. When you feel yourself exhausted by your spinning thoughts featuring climate change and world hunger, it might be time for some solo self love time. Being that you are an air sign, the first stop on your self love tour is absolutely meditation. A guided meditation will do wonders for you, especially if you add some hematite to your throat chakra. Next stop is working on your favorite hobby, practicing yoga, or reading a sci-fi book—more or less anything that requires no wifi or cellular service will do you so much good.

Pisces Feel Better Ritual
Sometimes you take on too much of other people’s junk, Pisces! It’s your gift and curse. You are incredibly empathetic, which is mostly a good thing, but it becomes problematic when you forget the boundaries. The cure? Do something artistic! Almost all Pisces have a natural gift for drawing, writing, singing, sketching, and creating some sort of art. Pull out your mandala coloring book and get to work. Let all of those emotions out through your art, and you are bound to feel rejuvenated. Once you are finished, take a long, hot bath. Add an aquamarine to your heart chakra (right at your heart!) while in the tub for an extra kick. You should be back to your normal self in no time!

Your Weekly Horoscope for September 17-24: Time to Set Those Goals (and Reach Them)!

Get a map to your future, with a free psychic reading.

As lovely Venus moves into practical Virgo, you’re getting the urge to crank up your motivation and get in shape, mentally, physically, psychologically and spiritually. Luckily, the stars and planets have your back, as a new moon urges you to continue down a healthier, clearer path. But don’t get too myopic and lose focus on the larger picture: As the bright sun enters congenial Libra, your relationships may require more TLC. Taking the time for some one-on-one friend dates, leaving pockets of your weekend free for socializing, and prioritizing hanging out with your SO will all pay off greatly. As the week winds down, prioritize yourself. No shame in that game. 

Aries Weekly Horoscope 
Sporty Rams are ready to take things to the next level. But before you sign up for that marathon, make sure you’re prepped—which means way more than buying a new pair of sneaks. Rams often look before they leap, especially in fitness and self-improvement, where you sometimes think buying the best new products on the market equals success. Do your research, ask around, and remember: Just because it’s not “trendy,” doesn’t mean it’s not effective. In other words, Rams, for your new routine to stick, you’ve got to do some internal prep work and ask yourself: Why am I doing this, and what am I willing to give up to make it happen? You’ve got this. 

Taurus Weekly Horoscope    
As Venus, your personal planet, moves through your aspect of having fun and socializing, you may find a “just friend” becoming something more, or find flirting to suddenly start to feel a little more serious. Enjoy this, and follow it where it leads. Also key: paying attention to your friends and family this week. You’ve been pretty focused on work or a personal project, and find that socializing can help recalibrate some balance that’s been missing from your life these past few weeks. During the weekend, the sun moves into Libra, prompting you to tackle some larger goals, projects, and plans. Do the prep work now, and nothing’s stopping you in the future. 

Is love in your stars?

Gemini Weekly Horoscope    
Restless Geminis are seeking a change this week. Remember, change is good, but also: It’s always better to be running toward something than away from something. If you’re dissatisfied with your life right now, find a way to change it. Even a minor tweak to your routine (like a simple daily ritual to center yourself) can lead to a major happiness boost. You’ve also been a little neglectful of your home space, which has had a major ripple effect on your life. We’re not saying making your bed will make over your mood, but it will set you on the right course. With the new moon on Tuesday in your home zone, the stars and planets are telling you to pay attention to where you are, right now—it’s important. 

Cancer Weekly Horoscope
Crabs would do well to get out of their shell and make some connections. Update your LinkedIn, chat with recruiters, or just redo your resume—anything to say, I’m here and I matter, will pay off big time in your professional field this week. People have been noticing your skills, but you’ve got to step up in order to be counted. As the glowing sun moves into Libra and your home sector mid-week, it’s equally important to pay attention to your friends and family. You’re so good at giving them what they need, but what do you need from them? Asking yourself this question (and even more importantly, asking the people in your life) is essential for a satisfying fall.

Leo Weekly Horoscope
Luxury loving Lions have been having a really fun summer—but the stars say it’s time to take stock of your savings, and, if necessary, cut back a bit. While budgeting is never “fun,” it’s important to realize that saving can be a way of nurturing yourself and preparing your bank account to be ready to support you when you need it. Shifting your money mindset is key to avoid feeling deprived. Setting a plan or intention on or before September 19 can set you up for success through the next few months. As the cheery sun moves into your sector of communication on Friday, it’s a good time to focus on brushing up on your networking skills. The first step: realizing some pretty clutch professional contacts can be right in your social circle. 

Virgo Weekly Horoscope 
With a complex blend of energies sweeping across your sign, it’s essential that you put yourself first. You’re always there to help out, offer counsel, or otherwise support your friends, but it’s equally important to make sure you have their support when you need it. Break down some barriers and talk to a friend about your problems for a change. It may feel scary, but it’s a pretty major move that will have a positive rippling effect in the weeks ahead. And part of this is pampering yourself—doesn’t need to be an hours-long professional massage (although that sounds awesome!) a five-minute self-care routine can also do the trick. 

Libra Weekly Horoscope 
Feel sorta psychic? It’s not your imagination. With complex Venus in a secluded section of your chart, not only are you tuned inward in a big way, but you’re very intuitive and empathetic of others. Pay attention to the things you feel, not necessarily the things you hear. But this extra-sensitive space can have you feeling especially vulnerable, which is why it’s essential to shore up your own personal cheering squad of people you know have your back. When the sun enters your sign on Friday, you are in the zone! Get ready, clear your calendar, and watch out for things to start happening.

Scorpio Weekly Horoscope 
As lovely Venus activates your social sector, romantic opportunities are (finally!) seeming to gel. In addition, your social life is on fire. You have plenty of invitations, and finally feel like things are going the way you want them. A word of caution: While everything is going well, it pays to be a bit cautious. Some situations may not be exactly what they seem, and the truth will shake out next week. In the meantime, playing some details close to the chest can be prudent. Finally, remember: Everyone has flaws (even you!) When you demand perfection, it only leads to feeling unsatisfied.

Sagittarius Weekly Horoscope 
A new moon in your sector of goals and ambition has you making major moves this week, Archers! Charm and a willingness to go the distance will impress all the right people. So what’s holding you back? Pleasure! Your single-minded pursuit of one goal (which you are so good at!) can leave you burned out and bitter if that’s all that is on your mind. Trust that work will only go more smoothly if you let yourself take the time to socialize, chill, and enjoy the people in your life. After all, if you can’t enjoy your leisure time, what are you working towards? Big questions like that will help you keep on the right track to a work/life balance that works for you. 

Capricorn Weekly Horoscope 
You want to move out of your comfort zone. But, as a tried and true tied to their routine Cap, this is so much easier said than done. Here’s a hint: Feisty Mars is in your sector of travel and exploration, and Mars is urging you to literally get out of your comfort zone. Whether it’s to visit a friend or take a solo drive across the country, making plans to travel is essential for making major moves in your life. No cash? No problem. Even opening your mind up to travel, by looking through travel inspiration or following a few globe-trotting Instagram accounts, can help you figure out what you need more of in your life (hint: it’s inspiration!). Once you set your imagination on fire, nothing is stopping you! 

Aquarius Weekly Horoscope 
Lucky Aquarius! This week, the possibility for transformation is so, so strong, giving you the motivation you need to finally make some moves toward where you want to be. The key, though, is figuring out what you want. If you’re not following a goal for your own intrinsic purposes, but more for what sounds good or what you think people want, you will come up against roadblocks. As the weekend approaches, your social sector shines. While as a rule, you don’t like to mix work and play, the stars say it’s the best weekend to talk through your career goals and concerns with a friend. Turn up the radio, hit the road, and get some internal stuff sorted!

Pisces Weekly Horoscope 
Now is the time to make some moves, Fish! With powerful influences in the relationship sector of your chart, now’s the time to schedule a date, talk next steps, or even just get together with a friend. But you’re also still coming out of an incredibly introspective few months, and the stars are still in a secluded sector of your chart. What this means: Leave plenty of time for self care,  make sure your own priorities get plenty of play throughout the week, and remember that you are so, so important. Loyal Pisces tend to swim with the pack; the stars are reminding you this week that sometimes, the strongest fish are the ones who break away and follow their own current (or internal guide).
