Your Horoscope This Week

Illustrated by Abbie Winters.
So, here’s the thing about the stars and heavens above: It's chaotic. Things shift slowly then quickly. There are ups, downs, and everything in between, dancing above our heads and within our hearts. It’s poetic and it’s tragic. Some days there are rainbows while others bring nothing but fire and brimstone.
Astrology is simply the tool we use to track the chaos — and, when we can, make sense of it. So, this week, when you’re experiencing your special blend of beautiful madness, just remember that all you have to do is show up and do your best, whatever that may be. Embrace the highs as well as the lows and know that they’re molding you into the best version of yourself. If you need to tap out because Mars, Saturn, and Pluto are crushing your soul, do that. If you want to go full tilt with those feelings of lust, courtesy of Venus and Mars, do that. If you need to find a place to pray because Jupiter and Neptune are calling on you to find your faith, that’s allowed, too. Get it?
The lyrics that come to mind when looking at this week’s transits came from an insightful Sagittarius, Imogen Heap of Frou Frou: "So let go / Jump in / Oh well, whatcha waiting for? / It's all right / 'Cause there's beauty in the breakdown."
