The Rumblr’s in-house astrologer, Madame Clairevoyant, presents her latest dispatch from the stars:
Aries: This week might feel really intense, like the world is all lightning and heat and strange heavy thoughts. If it starts to get like this, it’s good to try to get a little vulnerable, to try to notice the flecks of blue and green and gold all around you. If it starts to get like this, let your insides relax, slip out the back door late at night, sit and breathe in the cool quiet air, adjust to the heavy softness of the world.
Taurus: This week, unimaginable reserves of some kind of weird energy and weirder optimism are going to open up inside you, are going to start to grow. For now, even the worst things will feel okay; your friendships will feel strong and funny and great. It’s going to be a good week for having parties, a good week for laughing, a good week to drive out to the lake with your friends and float around on this good feeling all day long. Listen to the goofiest rock and roll songs you can even think of.
Gemini: This week is going to be full of watching, full of waiting, full of a sweet eager breathlessness. This is a week for keeping yourself awake and ready, through the moments that are quiet and the moments that are lonely. This is a week for keeping your senses sharp. This is a week for listening to the rhythms of strangers’ voices, a week for listening to the sounds of your friends laughing, a week for going to the library just to sit and think, a week for learning secret new ways to see or dream or sing or sleep.
Cancer: This week’s going to be full of repetition and false starts and paths that loop around, paths that circle back, paths that are wide and rambling and generous. The spaces you live in will give you second chances this week. They’ll give you time to start fresh, time to notice the tracks and the sounds and the greenness that you missed, maybe, before. This week, try to follow these long and looping paths as far as you can. Try to move and work during the day, then go out for burgers and beer and ice cream at night.
Leo: This week’s going to feel very quiet and very still, all around you, all inside you. This week’s going to feel like a foggy early morning, like a clear, glassy lake. This week, you’re going to be so perceptive, so attuned to every tiny change in the static in the air, in the echoing sweetness of the night, in the textures of the loneliness inside you. Go on walks through your neighborhood, call your parents and call your sister and call your faraway friends, listen to them loving you through the phone, watch the sky brighten.
Virgo: This week, the more you move and the more you work, the bigger and kinder and brighter your world’s going to feel, the more everything is going to make sense. This week is about loving the work, loving the sore legs and the tiredness at the end of the day, loving the things that your weird body can do and the things that your weird brain can do. Listen to the music your friends make. Think of all the things you could do. Work in your garden or work in your kitchen or organize your bookshelves or run until you’re too tired to move.
Libra: This week, you’re maybe going to find yourself striving for wholeness or realness or some kind of proof that you’re real, that you’re alive. Even if you won’t mean it, even if your life is very good, this feeling’s going to follow you this week, it’s going to whisper to you that going to work and coming home and eating tacos and watching television with your friends is not enough. Try to remember that the small things and the fake things and the boredom are what make you real. Eat tacos and watch television with your friends. Listen to The Shaggs.
Scorpio: This week, the everyday motions of your life are going to be fun and bright and full of joy and success, but everywhere you look and every way you move, you’re going to keep running up against the difficult thoughts and the ugly dreams that hide in the tight corners of your head and the faraway corners of the world. This week, in between the moments that are easy and joyful and good, try to look directly at sharp and difficult things, try to hold this weird darkness, try to keep it as close to you as you can.
Sagittarius: This week, your world’s going to feel precarious, it’s going to feel a little chaotic, it’s going to feel like you’re standing right over the fault lines, right at the stretching seams of your world. Anything can happen, at these cracks where the light gets in, where everything can rip apart, where everything can collapse. It’s a weird and wobbly balancing act—it’s a fragile thing, walking right at the edge. Try to honor this fragility and try to be brave and also try do your laundry, pay your electric bill, keep your feet on solid ground, as much as you can.
Capricorn: This is a week for moving a little slowly, for treading lightly, for keeping your eyes open to possible futures, possible presents, possible new worlds. The world that’s opening up this week can bring goodness and it can bring chaos and it’s going to be good if you can navigate it carefully and slowly. It’s okay to demand the space to navigate this week on your own weird terms. Try to remember where you’re from and try to remember the words to your old favorite songs. Drink a lot of water, drink a lot of coffee, read Yoko Ono’s poems.
Aquarius: This week is going to be a good week for getting things done, a good week for feeling proud of yourself—a week for getting a little vain and a little brash. Look in the mirror and see yourself glowing. Recognize what’s in your face that’s so bright and so precious. This pride is important this week, and this almost unreasonable love for your own messy self is important, and don’t let anybody tell you it’s not, and don’t be a jerk to the other people you love. Be loud, if you want. Wear clothes that make people never want to look away from you.
Pisces: This week, the ground under your feet is going to shift and wobble, and the world is going to show itself to you in ways that are strange and bendy and wild. You’ll wonder if your eyes are going to play tricks on you, or you’ll wonder if you can trust your own thoughts, your own feelings. This week, keep your eyes open and let yourself see the truths that are hard, but trust your feet to walk on shaky ground, trust yourself to know your own way home. Spend time with the people you love the most. Listen to songs about storms.
