Times are extremely uncertain right now, and even those that thrive on change are scratching their heads. If you’re struggling to find a place of calm, a deep study of what the stars suggest can help.
Moving Forward, Despite Unknowns
Remember the luxury of being not really sure? We were “not really sure” what we were doing over the weekend, but there would be time for fun. We used to be “not really sure” of what was for dinner; maybe we’d just go out to eat. We used to be able to be fairly certain of what tomorrow held. Currently, the language is flipped and the only thing to be quite certain of is that most of us are really not sure of much at all.Read More »

Maybe it’s time to go back to our more basic natures, as individuals and as signs. If you love to make people laugh, take a break from the negativity on social media and write a silly post about your cat to give people a grin. If you tend to be more secretive, reach out via email or text to the folks you seldom hear from. Tie in to what you know to be true for you and use your elbows to get comfortable.
If an Aries was invited to a dinner party, they showed up in time to help wash veggies. This sign is fist in line! Now is the time for Aries to shine. When it’s time to raise the visibility of a cause or step up and help a particular person, Aries can still stand in the spotlight. Be first! Dive in and help where you can.
Taurus doesn’t need to be visible to feel of use; in fact, Taurus may prefer to work behind the scenes. If you know someone who’s overwhelmed by work or other circumstances, put your skills to work by doing some food prep to help a teacher or health care professional get through a crazy week. Freeze single servings, wrap them up tight and drop them off to provide sustenance to someone on the front lines.
Geminis are some of the only folks who can, in fact, move in two directions at once. If you’re really good at getting everything done, share that knowledge with a blog or a YouTube video on simple steps to stay on top of the labor of line. Go ahead and stay busy. In fact, teach a class on getting things done.
Sensitive and gentle Cancer can see underlying conditions. Even if you are sheltering in place, you likely have strong social media connections and a healthy on-line life. Embrace your sensitive side and check in privately with those who seem the angriest, because anger on-screen is often a sign of deep fear. Be prepared to let folks wander through anger until they touch that fear, then offer support.
Everybody looks at Leo, so bring a serious cause into the spotlight! If you need help with something, share it. If you know others are struggling right now, share that. You’re going to be visible no matter what, so put that amazing power to use and become a beacon of hope by letting folks know they’re not along. Notify folks of a serious need in your community and be a champion of that cause.
Dear, uber-practical Virgo: You always can dig down to the truth of any matter, and you’re a detailed solutions person. Create a budgeting system for yourself and for other folks facing real world challenges, then offer to teach it to those who are struggling.
Libras are uniquely fixed on balance, harmony and symmetry. These skill make you the right person to figure out how we can hold and enjoy socially distanced holidays! How do we celebrate one another and keep one another safe? You’re the go-to person for a Thanksgiving of harmony and a winter season of connection while keeping one another safe.
Scorpio, you’re a water sign that runs deep, but you understand fire. You’re ideally placed to lower the incendiary reactions going on in our world right now. Be willing to serve as a sounding board for those that are dangerously reactionary at this time.
Keep learning, Sagittarius. Find new places to shoot your arrows and synthesize new connections between disparate topics. Can you help a friend manage part of their home-schooling? Design a science or history project for an older child? Where will your arrow hit?
Capricorns are ideally suited to promote the chop wood, carry water perspective. You love the spiritual but thrive in the day to day world. You get that prayer is about engaging your feet as well as you heart. Share, teach, and connect.
This sign has a deep humanitarian bent. You are the person to organize a food drive or a hygiene pantry. You understand suffering and can make a practical choice to reduce it. Aquarius brings both practicality and empathy to the table.
The fish is an observer. As you notice causes and projects being taken up by those around you, Pisces will notice the causes not getting the attention necessary. Pisces can be the ones helping those who fall outside the mainstream.
We can all find something to do. We all bring something to the table. If you’ve always been a helper but now you need to ask, you are being stretched in a new way that you’ve never gone before. In giving and receiving help, we can find hope.
