The Rumblr’s in-house astrologer, Madame Clairevoyant, presents her latest dispatch from the stars:

Aries: It might be easy to get stuck inside yourself this week; it might be easy to get lost in your own weird swirling mind. Try to live in the world. Try to spend your days with other people. Try to stay open to all the best surprises. Let your thoughts move in the bright afternoon air. There will be colors in the distance, and at night the stars will shine so strange and far above you. There’s so much more than what you know. There’s so much room to breathe.

Taurus: This week, things might get so strange inside your head. This week, your dreams might get tangled and your desires might get wild. Your days will be easier if you let this weirdness out your body, out of your brain, out into the world. Let your words get weird, let your voice get loud. Read books you’ve never read. Drive out to places you’ve never seen. Everything will make sense again, and for now it’s a week for turning up your music and telling your truths.

Gemini: This week, when it’s hard to find north, when it’s hard to find the way home, when it’s hard to remember what you’re doing, try not to worry. Try not to talk yourself in circles. It’s a week for living in your body more than your head. It’s a week for trusting the instincts that live in your stomach, the feelings that live in your shoulders, the wisdom that lives in your skin. You know so much more than you think. You can believe your own self.

Cancer: This week might feel like a river, this week might feel like the sea, this week might feel like nothing in the whole world is solid. This can be strange and it can be such a gift, if you’re ready for it. Think about motion. Think about waves. Think about all the water in the world and all the water in your body. Let yourself love other people the way they need to be loved. Let yourself bend, let yourself float. Think about how many ways there are to be free.

Leo: This week, the world might feel chilly or prickly or strange. This week, the days might feel short. This week, you might need to search harder than you think for brightness and softness and love. You can find all the goodness you need, you can find enough warmth to fill your whole city, but you’ll have to work. Clean your kitchen. Eat the foods that make you strong. Let your friends know that you love them. Listen to the music that opens up your whole heart.

Virgo: This week is for thoughtfulness, this week is for memory, this week is for finding solid ground to stand on. Even when the wind blows, even when the sun sets, you will have your own good thoughts, you will have your own good friends, you will have your own good heart. You don’t have to hide your truest self. You do not have to doubt your capacity for bright wild joy. Read your old diaries. Remember your old dreams. You can come back to yourself.

Libra: Your whole body might fill up with some wild energy this week; your dreams might fill with such bright bendy colors. You can get unstuck, you can get inspired, you can get moving again. You might not recognize this energy right away, you might not know quite what to do with it. Just try to let it move you. Try to let it brighten your nights. Try to be open to new cities, new people, new roads. You can glow, you can shine, you can light your own way.

Scorpio: Your language can do funny things, this week. Your language can go so wild. This week, you can talk yourself into anything, you can talk magic into being, you can speak whole worlds into life. Your voice can carry you, it can light up rooms, it can calm storms, it can move whole oceans. Try to be kind, this week when the world bends around you. Try to be generous. Listen to other people. Listen to songs with no words at all.

Sagittarius: The world might feel unpredictable around you this week, and you might feel unpredictable inside it. You might feel your veins fill up with electricity, you might feel your skin flush with a wild heat. Do whatever you need to do, this week, because nothing in the world can contain you if you decide not to be contained. Nothing in the whole world can dim your bright light. Think of yourself as fire under a dark sky; think of yourself as warmth on a cold night.

Capricorn: This week, you might feel so acutely, so tenderly, the way the world is spinning, the way it’s moving through the sky. This week, you might feel a new season begin. You might wake up feeling new, feeling bright, feeling strange in your own skin. Try to watch and wait, just for a little bit. You don’t have to rush and you don’t have to worry. Wear your warmest sweaters. Wear the clothes that make you feel strongest. Look at your face in the mirror until you recognize yourself again.

Aquarius: The space around you might wobble this week; the air might shimmer and the ground might shake. It might feel hard to catch your balance. It might feel hard to see your true self. This wild moving world can be so exhausting, but you’re strong and strange enough to live here. Try not to be afraid. Try just to take such tender care of yourself. Put an extra blanket on your bed. Cook your favorite soup. Call someone who loves you, just to hear their voice.

Pisces: Your days might be full of motion this week, and they might be full of surprises, and they might be full of wild desires that you hardly recognize, that you can hardly even name. If you search for courage you can find it, and if you search for kindness you can find it, and if you search for joy, your whole life can bloom. Let your life fill with music. Let your life fill with color. You don’t have to settle for anything less than what you need.

The Rumblr’s in-house astrologer, Madame Clairevoyant, presents her latest dispatch from the stars:

Aries: You might feel a little distant from your own life this week, like you’re far from home even when you’re in your own kitchen, in your own bed, in the most familiar corners of your thoughts. This week might feel strange, but if you keep your eyes open you’ll be able to find a beautiful bright clarity. You’ll be able to know what you want. You’ll be able to see what you need to do. You’ll be able to come back to earth when you’re ready, but for now just focus on breathing in this cold clean air.

Taurus: This is a week for cleaning bad feelings out of your house, for clearing bad feelings out of your body. There are so many ways to keep living. There are so many ways to get free, and there are so many kinds of strange joy that you can let into your heart, and it’s okay to quit things that make you sad, sometimes. It’s okay to walk away. It’s okay to talk and talk and talk until your secrets turn into air. Drink water or go on the longest walks or cook something beautiful just for yourself.

Gemini: The world around you might not fully make sense this week, and this is okay. The world around you might feel tangled and bendy and wild, but it will be filled with the glimmer of possibility. It will be filled with the thrill of the future. Your days will come into focus slowly, and the truths you are looking for will reveal themselves to you when you don’t even expect it. Your life might not make sense, but you have what you need to keep moving. Listen to songs you don’t understand. Listen to songs about love.

Cancer: This is a week for talking, it’s a week for making so much bright golden noise, it’s a week not to hold back. This is a week for saying things that might embarrass you, as long as you speak with a full heart. This is a week for saying things that might make your life strange, a week for saying things that might make your life better, a week for saying what’s been on your mind. Write letters, write long funny emails, stay up late at night on the phone. Talk about your secrets. Talk about your love.

Leo: The world might feel slow this week, and you might feel stuck. It might feel like there’s nowhere to move, like there’s not enough air, but still there are so many ways to make space for yourself. There are so many places to find movement, even on the slowest and weirdest days. It’s a week for reading, it’s a week for telling stories, it’s a week for turning up the music loud enough that you can feel it in your bones, wild enough that you can hear it in your dreams.

Virgo: This week, your dreams might feel heavy with meaning, and your days might shine with truth, and you can see your face reflected back to you in windows and mirrors; you can see your own life reflected back to you in the sky, in the morning, in the eyes of the people you know. It’s a week for finding small moments of quiet for yourself, a week for building slow peaceful days, a week for sitting back and letting your mind wander and watching the golden afternoon light. It’s a week for remembering who you are.

Libra: This week, you can feel something inside you fit into place, you can feel your life start to make sense to you again. This week, you can believe in the rhythms that beat in your dreams, you can believe in the love pumping in your heart, you can believe in the things that you feel in your bones to be true. Let the world fill you with a sense of wholeness. You’re made of blood and bone and water and dreams and you don’t have to try to be anybody but your own sweet self.

Scorpio: This week, if you pay attention, you might feel your body in moving in some kind of funny rhythm with the world. You might feel your thoughts moving in harmony with the life you’ve built for yourself. You might a stillness, or a sweetness, or a funny feeling of peace. It’s a week to let the world move you. It’s a week to sit back in awe at all the wild days that have brought you here. It’s a week to drink coffee, to be good to your friends, to watch the world spin, to wait and see.

Sagittarius: This week might feel strange, it might feel frustrating, it might make you so impatient. This week might feel like nothing is quite settled, like nothing is quite what you’re expecting it to be. Sometimes it takes such a long time for the patterns of your life to make themselves known. Sometimes the way forward is clear, and sometimes you just have to be patient, sometimes you have to do the best you can while you wait. Try to be kind. Try to keep moving. Try to trust that the message will become clear.

Capricorn: This is a week for learning new ways not to back down when the world gets strange. This is a week for learning new ways to create your own light, to create your own energy, to create your own fire. It’s a week for moving, it’s a week for sweating, it’s a week for shouting and singing and cooking and eating. Fill yourself up with stories of people who are brave enough to keep living. Listen to music that makes you believe in your own body, your own strength, your own life.

Aquarius: The skies might feel heavy above you this week, the ground might feel hard, the streets might feel crowded and close. The world might try to shrink your imagination, or your belief in your own bright magic, or your wild love for the people around you. This is a week for staying bright and generous even in a difficult world. This is a week for resistance, it’s a week for pushing back, it’s a week for staying strong and strange in the face of all the forces that would have you feel small.

Pisces: This week, follow the rhythm of the earth as it spins under your feet. Follow the rhythm of songs played in supermarkets, in cars, in your head. Follow the thoughts that won’t leave you alone. Follow the images that keep tugging at you, keep speaking to you, keep bothering you. Follow the things that move you, even if they don’t make sense yet, even if you aren’t sure where they’re taking you. It’s not your job right now to know why. All you have to do is honor your own instincts.

The Rumblr’s in-house astrologer, Madame Clairevoyant, presents her latest dispatch from the stars:

Aries: This week, you can see the whole world around you with new eyes; this week, everything can look different. There are things that you’ve known for too long to really see them, and there are people you’ve taken for granted, and there are dreams inside your own heart that you’ve been ignoring. Try to slow down for a minute. Try to let your feet guide you, try to believe your own eyes. You can look around, you can reevaluate the things you thought you knew, you can see your world clearly, you can let strange new love blossom in your heart.

Taurus: This might be a week for being a little quiet, it might be a week for letting yourself get distracted, it might be a week just to sit and listen to the world move around you. This week can be full of unexpected moment, unexpected joy, things you could not have even dreamed up on your own. Try to listen to the birds in the morning, listen to the radio, listen to the traffic outside. Try to listen to the stories your friends tell you; try to take their advice.

Gemini: Maybe you’ll feel a new burst of energy this week, and maybe you’ll feel a change, and maybe you’ll feel some wild need inside of you. It’s a week for just growing toward the sun, it’s a week for angling all your body and your thoughts toward the light. Think of yourself as a plant, as a tree, as something with all the green wisdom of the world in your own body. You don’t have to keep growing straight up into the sky. Growing strong and strange can be enough.

Cancer: There are so many things you don’t know and so many futures you can’t see, and this might bother you this week, it might scare you, it might get under your skin. It’s going to be a week for uncertainty, and this is not a bad thing. It’s going to be a week for believing what you need to believe, even when there’s no proof, just a feeling in your stomach. It’s going to be a week to walk to the park, to look at the sky, to sit and live and wait and see.

Leo: You might feel some fire start to burn in your blood again this week, you might start to feel some new energy taking hold of you, you might start to feel like you’re finally in motion again, like the world is new. You might feel moved to quit your job, to drive across the country, to change your name, and even if you can’t do these things, it’s okay to daydream all day long. There is motion in your dreams, there is motion in your words, there is so much world for you. There’s so much you can do.

Virgo: This week might be full of a strange bright electricity. It might be a week for storms in the afternoon, thunder that wakes you up at night, lightning that rips branches off the trees on your street. It won’t be bad and it won’t even be scary, just a sign that there’s a charge in the air, that the weather is changing, that good strange days are coming. Stay inside as much as you have to. Drink a cup of tea and watch the rain on your windows and wait for a change

Libra: This is a week for working to love the place where you are, it’s a week for working to love the place that’s your home, it’s a week for feeling your feet on the ground and the world moving all strange and sweet around you. It’s a week for taking long walks, it’s a week for talking to your neighbors, it’s a week for returning your library books. You can let the town you live in love you back, if you want. You can find a feeling of rootedness, if you want.

Scorpio: This is a week for spending time with people you love, with people who make your eyes sparkle, with people who make you generous and kind. This is a week just for being with the people you love, even if it sounds too simple, even if it sounds like it could not be enough. You can let your thoughts slow down just a little, this week. You can let your muscles relax. You can spend your days with people who bring out the self that you like best, and for now that can be enough.

Sagittarius: It’s going to be okay, this week, to let yourself be ruled by curiosity. It’s going to be okay just to wait and to see what’s going to happen next. If you really let curiosity bloom all bright and weird in your heart, it can open up whole universes, it can open new futures, it can let you see the world so strange. Try to let your curiosity make you brave. Let it make you generous. Let it help you to see with an honesty that could haunt your dreams.

Capricorn: This week you might feel strange and you might feel scared and the world might seem too full of noise for one person to live in. Try to remember that you have everything you need. You have dreams that could fill up the whole sky, and you have days full of sunlight, days full of motion, days full of possibilities. You can walk away from every bad thing. You can build a house to live in, all warm and sweet. You can keep singing all through the night and all through the morning.

Aquarius: The world might offer you so many choices this week, it might show you so many possibilities, it might dazzle you with all of the lives you could have. This is a gift, but it might not always seem that way. This is a gift, but not an easy one. You have to keep moving, this week. You have to rely on your own sense of balance. When there is no map, you have to rely on your own self. Listen to songs that make you feel brave enough. Listen to Nicki Minaj.

Pisces: If you start to forget who you are this week, if you start to forget how to live, try to see yourself through other people. Try to see yourself through the friends who believe in you most. Try to see the ways you glow and shine in other people’s eyes. There are so many ways to live and so many ways to see; spend your days with people who help you remember this. You can rebuild your confidence. You can relearn how to love your own self. You can remember the magic in your bones and the light in your heart.

The Rumblr’s in-house astrologer, Madame Clairevoyant, presents her latest dispatch from the stars:

Aries: This is going to be a week made of small moments, it’s going to be a week for staying connected with the people in your world, it’s going to be a week for listening to what people tell you and listening to the quiet in between their words. It’s a week for enjoying other people’s company. It’s a week for being a little careful and a little kind with strangers in the grocery store, on the street, on the bus. Listen to the radio, listen to the night. Just being here can be enough.

Taurus: This week you’ll be able to feel yourself changing, maybe, getting wiser and getting weirder. You’re growing every second, even when you’re bored at your job, even when you’re stuck in traffic, even when you’re asleep. You don’t need to rush and you don’t need to worry. You’re doing so much work all the time, so try to go a little easy on yourself sometimes. Give yourself time to feel quiet and time to feel slow and time just to sit outside your house and feel the night on your skin.

Gemini: This week, you aren’t going to be able to make everyone happy, and you aren’t going to be able make everyone love you just how you want, and you aren’t going to be able to sail through this week all neutral and untouched. You aren’t going to make everyone happy this week that’s ok. That’s where the magic is, that’s where you can find yourself, that’s where you can find the truths you really need. You can stop watching everyone watch you. You can stop worrying so much. You can live the way you need to.

Cancer: This week you can watch the sky change color, and you can watch the days slowly start to get colder, and you might get a little scared of the long nights ahead. It’s a good week to make sure you have the things you’re going to need. It’s a good week to clean your bathroom, clean your fridge, clean your room, do all your laundry. It’s a good week to hang pictures on your walls. It’s a good week for taking care of the space you live in, a good week for making a home.

Leo: It might feel like the world is shifting under your feet and it might feel like your bones are shifting inside your own body, this week. It’s not always easy, but try not to hold on to everything so tight. It’s okay to let the world shift and breathe. It’s okay to let your friends live in ways that you don’t understand and it’s okay to let the air move in ways you don’t understand. Let your thoughts get away from you sometimes; let them carry you to bright weird places.

Virgo: This is a week for making order of all the strange parts of your life, it’s a week for making meaning, it’s a week for sorting and naming and drawing maps. It’s a week for navigating the weird territory of your dreams and the weird landscapes of your desires. Try to keep moving and try to keep your eyes open. Even if you don’t know what you’re doing, you can find what you need to guide you. Even if you don’t know what you want, you can stay honest, you can stay good, you can keep trying.

Libra: This is a week for letting your blood flow hot in your veins, it’s a week for letting your dreams overflow right out of your heart. It’s a week for getting worked up over how big the world is, how full, how exciting. There are so many bright clear days coming your way and it’s okay, this week, to get happy about it, to get so hopeful it’s a little embarrassing. Listen to Beyoncé and let this energy carry you through the week. Let this energy make you believe in everything good.

Scorpio: This week, if you need to, if you’re ready, you’ll be able to make things right, you’ll be able to make amends, you’ll be able to fix the things that have been wrong and the things that have been bothering you. It can be a week for apologies or a week for forgiveness, it can be a week for laying your heart bare, it can be a week for restoring the balance inside of you. Try to be brave, try to be honest and true to the people you care about, try to be kind to yourself.

Sagittarius: When your days start to move faster than you can even keep up with, try to take a break if you can. Try to stop moving for a second and just look around you. Give yourself time to check in with yourself, with the people you care about, with the place you live in. Give yourself time to get your bearings, give yourself time to catch your balance, give yourself time to breathe. It’s a week for remembering where you are, it’s a week for making adjustments to your path, it’s a week for finding north again.

Capricorn: Even when everything seems most strange, even your own words, even your own heart, even your own face, try not to beat yourself up so much. Even when all you can see is the empty space, even when all you can think of is the work left to do, try not to be so hard on yourself. You’re doing okay, you’re trying so hard, you’re doing so much better than you even know. Let your friends love you however you can. Let yourself live your funny strange life in this funny strange world.

Aquarius: This week, you can focus on the way the sun shines through your windows, or the way your hair looks when you first wake up, or the little green leaves on the plants in your windowsill. This week will be full of small gifts, full of these gentle reminders that you deserve every good thing in the world, every good thing there is. You don’t have to doubt your own thoughts, you don’t have to worry, just let the world around you fill up with possibilities. You can do anything you want. You deserve all the happiness there is.

Pisces: This is a week for trusting your skin and your guts, it’s a week for trusting the borders of your self, it’s a week for trusting the thing you know to be true. You don’t have to believe anything cruel and you don’t have to believe anything that rings heavy and false. You don’t have to be open to anyone who doesn’t care about you; you don’t have to be open to anyone who doesn’t want to see you grow into your best and happiest and most generous self.

The Rumblr’s in-house astrologer, Madame Clairevoyant, presents her latest dispatch from the stars:

Aries: Maybe the world’s been moving fast around you and maybe your thoughts have been moving fast inside your own skull, and either way, things can start to slow down this week. You can find moments of sweet stillness; you can find time just to sit, just to live, just to watch colors in the sky. Everything around you can come into focus. Everything around you can make sense, for now. Just keep your head up and keep your eyes open and keep breathing the clear sweet morning air.

Taurus: You’re going to be so busy this week, busy just building the best life you can, busy growing older, busy growing up. There might be hints of magic and there might be signs of a glowing future somewhere up ahead, but this will mostly be a week for keeping your head, for keeping your feet on the ground, for staying honest. Try to keep believing in your own life. Try to keep believing that all this work matters. Try to get enough sleep. It’s going to be a very good week.

Gemini: This week will present you with some challenges, maybe; it will offer you some choices. This might seem difficult and it might seem like too much, but you’ll know what to do. You already have all the tools you need, you have all the raw materials, you have all the wisdom and the guts. Try not to forget that. Don’t let anyone convince you that you don’t know what you need. You can make warmth out of nothing; you can build joy out of air. There will be nothing that you can’t handle.

Cancer: The world around you can calm down this week, and your days can all start to make sense again. You can sleep so well and you can wake up happy and you can move like you know where you’re going. Things are going to be okay this week, even the things that didn’t seem like they would be, so try to use your time to be kind. Try to use your time to set things right. You can find your own balance again. You can find your own voice. You can find what you need.

Leo: There will be so many things that you don’t know, this week. There will be so many things that can make you feel small. There will be so many kinds of love that will be gentler and weirder and more real than you can even see, and it’s okay. This is a week for learning to let other people live, learning to feel small, learning to feel awe at all the things you don’t know and can’t even predict. Just try to keep your eyes open. Try to keep your heart beating. Try to be kind.

Virgo: Your thoughts have been racing inside you, maybe, working so hard to make sense of the world, working so hard to find a story that makes sense. This week things might start to settle. This week you might start to feel solid again. Things have changed inside of you, and this is a week for adjusting. It’s a week for being as patient as you can. It’s a week for practicing living until it feels natural and easy again. Your days might not make sense yet, but they will.

Libra: This week does not have to be such a big week; this week does not have to bear all the weight of the past and the future, and it does not have to bear the weight of all of your secret dreams. This week, try to give yourself a moment to rest. Take a bath, take a day off, take a minute to watch the sky. You’ve survived so many things already, and all you have to do this week is be very good to other people. All you have to do this week is be kind.

Scorpio: This is a week for trying; this is a week for experimenting. This is a week for doing things you’ve never done before, for talking to strangers or cooking without a recipe or driving without a map. Go to places where you’re never been before, places where there might be sparks and their might be nothing and there might be magic like nothing you’ve ever seen. It’s hard to surprise your own self, so let the world do it for you. Let the world show you what you didn’t know you were looking for.

Sagittarius: It’s okay to let your dreams light you up this week, it’s okay to let them make you happy, it’s okay to let them make you a little gentle. It’s okay to believe in the magic of what’s possible. It’s okay to trust the path that you’re walking on, to believe that it’s leading to the place you’re hoping to find. Either you’ll be right in the end or you won’t, and either way it will be okay, and you’ll keep living, and the sun will still light up your days all gold and bright.

Capricorn: If you’re not so productive this week, or if you don’t spend your time the way you think you should, try not to worry. Nothing’s going to be wasted this week, not even your wasted time. Things are going to keep getting better this week, slowly, quietly, so gently that you might not notice. It’s a week for opening all your windows and watching the light change; it’s a week for watching storms in the afternoon. It’s a week for getting up early and watching the sun rise over the trees and rooftops.

Aquarius: This is a week for waiting and watching and letting the world unfurl itself all bright around you. This is a week for eating lunch outside, a week for looking to the sun, a week for letting your body set its own pace. It’s okay, sometimes, to go through slow seasons and dry seasons and strange seasons. It’s okay to move slowly when you need to. It’s okay to give yourself time to let your brain catch up with your body, time to let your dreams catch up with the sky.

Pisces: There are thing you’ve been working to let go and there are things you’ve been meaning to let go and there are things that you haven’t even noticed hanging over your head, weighing heavy in all your bags and your pockets. There are things that have been taking up too much space in your heart. This is a week for clearing out some space for yourself. You can drop some of this heaviness, and you can be brave enough to carry the rest. Have your friends over for dinner. Fill your dreams with light.

The Rumblr’s in-house astrologer, Madame Clairevoyant, presents her latest dispatch from the stars:

Aries: It’s okay if you don’t know what you’re doing yet, this week. It’s okay if you don’t know where you’re going. It’s okay if you don’t know the shortest path to the life that you’re trying to find. Look at yourself in the mirror and think of all the different haircuts you’ve had, think of all the different faces you’ve worn. Float on your back in a lake, in a pool, in the sea, and think of all the time you have to keep learning how to live.

Taurus: This is a week for stoking the fire inside of you. This is a week for turning up the music in your heart. This is a week for practicing and working and trying as hard as you can to live as the best version of yourself. You don’t ever have to feel like you aren’t enough, and you don’t ever have to feel like you’re too much. Just try to recognize the warmth inside of you, try to recognize the glow, try to recognize the funny bright magic that can fill your whole house.

Gemini: This can be a week to feel like you’re floating, this can be a week to feel like you’re flying, this can be a week to have total faith in your own self. The sun can light up your kitchen just right, and the sounds floating up from the street can be gentle and sweet, and the people in your life can love you just the way you need. Good things can happen and good things can keep happening, just doing whatever you can to be kind.

Cancer: The world is going to move fast and bright and wild around you this week; the world is going to be full of sound and motion. The world is going to throw so many questions your way this week. This can be exciting and it can fill you with life and it can keep you up at night. Try not to worry. All you have to do is keep living, all you have to do is keep breathing, all you have to do is keep trying as hard as you can.

Leo: You might feel a little tired this week, you might feel stretched so thin, you might feel a little emptied out. Spend your time alone, if you need to. Take long baths, take long walks if you need to. If you can’t figure out what you need, try to rely on the deepest strongest kindness you can find inside you. Try to rely on generosity. Try to give everything you can of yourself and watch all your goodness come back to you, watch it carry you.

Virgo: This week is for getting out from underneath the clouds that have been hanging over you, this week is for breaking the curses that have stuck to you, this week is for tapping into the best magic you have. Some things take energy and some things take time and some things take magic, and this week you can find whichever of these things you most need. You can practice fearlessness this week. You can practice loving yourself just so much. Listen to songs sung by witches and songs sung by ghosts. Listen to Kate Bush.

Libra: The night sky might sing to you this week; the moon might call your name. This is a week for tapping into some deep true wildness inside yourself. This is a week for trusting your beating heart, it’s a week for trusting your pumping blood, it’s a week for letting yourself be moved by love. Try to stay open; try to wait and see where love can take you. See what it can show you. See how it can shift and bend and guide you home.

Scorpio: This week you might find yourself just bursting with feeling, bursting with energy, bursting with more of your own essence than you even know what to do with. This is a week to let yourself be full and expansive and wild. This is a week for avoiding, as much as you can, the places and the people who make you shrink. It’s a week for climbing mountains, it’s a week for swimming in the ocean, it’s a week for walking down crowded streets, it’s a week for remembering your own true name.

Sagittarius: You might feel tired this week and you might feel drained, you might feel like you’ve used up all your stockpiles of energy and love. You might feel like you’ve used up all the bravery in your body, but you have things inside yourself that even you don’t know about. You have hidden reserves of wildness and joy waiting to be uncovered. This is a week for resting, and this is a week for remembering your own best energy. Drink enough water. Listen to songs you’ve never heard before.

Capricorn: Your body might react so strongly, so strangely, to the shifting seasons this week. You might feel the change in your blood, in your brain, in your bones. You might feel the change in your stomach, in the tips of your fingers, in your voice. Try to let it sink in. Try to let yourself settle. It’s okay to take everything a little slow while you readjust to your own body, while you readjust to the length of your days, while you get used to this new season’s air on your skin.

Aquarius: This week it might feel like you’re finally waking up from long weird sleep, it might feel like you’re coming out of a deep and strange trance, it might feel like you’re just snapping out of something, like you’re breaking free, like you’re coming back to yourself. Try not to let this week go to waste. Try not to let this magic awakening slip past you unnoticed. You can celebrate your waking brain. You can celebrate the bounds of your body. You can dance, you can shout, you can do anything.

Pisces: This is a week for asking questions; it’s a week for getting stranger answers than you expected. This is a week for fitting the pieces of your life together and finding something different than you were waiting for. It’s a week for looking at your world with clear eyes and an open heart and a weird bright curiosity. You might be surprised, this week. You might be overcome by joy. You might not yet know what to do with the answers that you find, and that’s okay.

The Rumblr’s in-house astrologer, Madame Clairevoyant, presents her latest dispatch from the stars:

Aries: If you start to feel restless this week, if you start to feel trapped, try to remember that it’s okay to be impulsive, it’s okay to move in circles, it’s okay to change your mind. Try to make your choices with kindness in your heart, try to move through the world trusting in the wisdom of your body, but it’s okay if you aren’t right at first. It’s okay to move backwards. It’s okay to take risks that might never pay off. Go to the beach, go to the mountains, go to the movies. Keep moving.

Taurus: This week you’ll be able to see the future stretched out in front of you, all the way to the horizon, vast and blue as the sea. If you look at it too much, if you look too closely, it might play tricks on your vision. It might throw you off balance. There’s no map that can show you where to go, so try not to worry so much. There’s no way to see everything at once, so just keep moving and trust that the ground will stay firm under your feet, because it will.

Gemini: This week your heart might feel so fragile, like a sunset, like a morning, like a dream. It’s going to be so easy to lose yourself in the sorrows of the world, like you could spend whole days lost inside your own head, like you could spend whole days just sighing and gazing out the window. Try to remember the ways you know to fill yourself with joy. Try to remember the ways you know to make your own light out of nothing. Try to remember to eat enough that you’ll stay strong.

Cancer: This week there will be so many ways to know your own self, there will be so many ways to anchor yourself in this world. You can wear clothes that look like the fire you feel in your heart, you can wear clothes that match all the greens and blues of your dreams; you can wear clothes that glitter like the stars. There are so many songs you can sing, there are so many spells you can cast, there are so many ways to remind yourself of the person you most want to be.

Leo: You might feel really driven this week, like you can do anything, like there’s nothing in this world that can stop you. You might feel lit up by all the bright energy in your limbs. You might feel like you can see all the way to the end of the world. Just don’t drive all the softness out of your heart. Don’t drive all the tenderness out of your body. Think of your best future self but still, always, think of the people all around you right now. Try to be so good to them.

Virgo: If the streets bend all strange around you this week, if your days feel like such small brittle things, just try to breathe, try to sleep, try to drink enough water. You can slow down, if you need to, or you can stay inside all day, or you can talk to kind strangers in the park, in the store, on the bus. The future will come when it wants to, so try to enjoy your time this week. Try just to enjoy your own body. Try just to enjoy your own sweet life.

Libra: This week, try to let your muscles get loose, try to let your thoughts wander, try not to worry too much about all your big plans. You can think of yourself like you’re made of water, you can think of yourself like you aren’t even solid. You can take on so many forms. You can move at so many different speeds. You can stay home and watch movies all week long, if you need to. You can sit on the porch and watch the sky. You can walk and walk and walk until you know what to do.

Scorpio: This is a week for letting go of what makes you feel small, it’s a week for letting go of what makes you feel less alive. Worlds can end this week and it will not be the worst thing. Whole worlds can end this week, and you’ll be surprised at all the space that opens up to you. You can say no to so many of the thoughts that crowd inside you. You can say no to so many small cruelties. You can create so much clear bright space inside yourself that you almost start to glow.

Sagittarius: This week’s going to feel strange and sharp and prickly, maybe, like there’s a stone in your shoe, like your clothes won’t fit right. It’s not the best and it isn’t easy, but this kind of discomfort can show you so many things, if you are patient. Try to sit with it, for now. Try to live with it. If you don’t rush to smooth everything over, if you don’t rush to fill every crack, your vision can become so clear. Your backbone can turn to steel. You can know what you need to do.

Capricorn: This week you can find strength in the weirdest places, you can find more strength than you knew your body could hold. Listen to the bands you used to love and let them remind you of all the ways your thoughts can move. Listen to the songs you’ve always loved and let them carry you through your days. The world around you you can get so tangled and wild, but you can learn what you need to do just by moving forward. You can learn what you really want if you just keep living.

Aquarius: This is a week for being a little tougher than you need to be, maybe, or a week for being a little weirder than you need to be, or a week for telling the truth just a little louder than you have to. It’s a week for fighting back against everything that makes you feel small, everything that makes it hard to move, everything that makes your heart feel so heavy. You can resist, this week. You can shout, you can sing, you can eat ice cream all day. You can grow into your fullest freest self.

Pisces: This is a week for weird honesty; this is a week for trusting yourself to find a way through the space between what you have and what you need. Try to be brave enough to say your own true name out loud. Try to be brave enough to go where you haven’t been before. Try to be brave enough to believe in the quiet glowing truth in your blood. Listen to the rhythm more than the tune. Listen to the bass more than the melody. Let the world carry you.

Q

Anonymous asked:

Hello! I feel a bit silly for asking but I am really interested to know what Anti-Genius is / all about. Somehow I feel like I should just know, but I don't. Love your horoscopes, by the by.

A

doskapozora:

Oh anon I’m glad you asked!! I worry that “anti genius” is really easily interpreted to mean something totally different than what I’m trying to do, and I am grateful for the opportunity to keep being a broken record about it!

First, to be clear, Anti-Genius is not anti art! Not anti-good art, not anti-difficult art, not anti-complicated art. Not, as all these litbros insist on believing, about reducing great literature to a sad flat landscape of “good” and “bad” people. It’s not about being “offended” by “characters i don’t like,” it’s not about wanting to only read “viewpoints that I agree with.” (I trust that you know this, anon, but I think probably it’s an important thing to get out of the way. Ok!!). 

The tag has started to sprawl a little bit, but the original and most basic point of Anti-Genius is that producing great art does not excuse a person from the responsibilities of being human. The most basic point of Anti-Genius is that good literature is the most important thing in the world to me BUT STILL people are more important. 
I went to a liberal arts college full of brainy social justice-obsessed weirdos and even then, in one of the first lit classes I took, we spent the entire semester discussing whether or not The Artist is of a fundamentally different breed than the regular person. Liiiiiike, truly, I cannot believe that is even a question. The artist is a human just like the rest of us. The poet is a human just like the rest of us. Same as the movie actor, same as the Wall Street banker, same as the pro football player, I don’t care. This is not to say that “we’re all human let’s get along!” but rather that we all live in a difficult world, and we all need to do the best we can to live kind and just and moral lives, and having a cool job does not excuse you from this. This is like so basic, it’s so uncool to say. My internalized poststructuralist theorist is cackling and groaning at me right now, my internalized Cool Brooklyn self is cringing so hard, I don’t care, here we are. 
Not saying that nobody should consume art by anyone who is a “bad person,” etc etc etc. We all have our own complicated moral arithmetic to do, to determine what we’ll ignore, what we’ll let go, what we’ll forgive. I will not watch a movie by Woody Allen but I still love David Foster Wallace. It’s not easy and I’m not pure but like, but like
I once went to a comedy show at UCB where Donald Glover did a joke about Michael Jackson, about how liiiiike wellllll maybe a kid or two got abused but Thriller was worth it. Anti-Genius means fuckkkkkk that. Anti-Genius means that the wives matter, the girlfriends matter, the kids matter, what is even the point, otherwise. Anti-Genius means that art is the most important thing there is but it is never that important. 

No Madame Clairevoyant today. (She is traveling.) Instead, however, we offer her thoughts on “ANTI-GENIUS.”

The Rumblr’s in-house astrologer, Madame Clairevoyant, presents her latest dispatch from the stars:

Aries: This is a week for letting your ideas breathe; this is a week for thinking out loud. This is a week for letting your secret projects and plans out into the world, for letting them stretch their legs, for letting them come alive in the sunlight. Talk through your thoughts with other people. Let your friends show you the things you don’t see; let them show you new ways your brain can move. Try to be brave, try to be generous, and your thoughts can sparkle, they can glow, they can light your way.

Taurus: This can be a week for making choices, a week for narrowing your focus, a week for remembering that your time and your attention and your life are your own. You don’t have to spread your energy all across the world; you don’t have to give of yourself every time someone asks. You can stop listening to the people who don’t care about you. You can choose what to do with your own days. You can speak your needs out loud. You can listen to your favorite song as many times in a row as you want.

Gemini: This is a week for dreaming about motion; this is a week for dreaming about flight. This week you can get unstuck from whatever has been holding you in place, and it will feel like you can move through the sky, like you can move through your days, like you’re made of light. You can believe, just for now, that there are no limits on the range of motion available to you. You can believe that everything will always be this easy, that everything will always be okay. Call somebody you miss. Write letters full of bright love.

Cancer: You can feel the winds shifting this week, you can feel change in the air, you can feel the stars calling out to you at night. The possibilities of your life can open up. You can imagine your way into so many futures and so many lives. This week you can move like light, you can move like sound, you can move like a dream. You don’t have to be solid, you don’t have to be sure, you don’t have to know quite what you’re doing. It’s okay to live in possibilities, for now.

Leo: When your world gets most strange this week, when you need it most, you can find bright fire buried deep in your heart. You can find a little bit of darkness, you can find a little bit of steely trust in your own self. You can find energy that feels like a forest, you can find energy that feels like the sea, you can find energy that can carry you through anything. You can stand up for yourself, you can believe in your own face in the mirror, you can be so generous with your love.

Virgo: It might be easy to get frustrated this week, it might be easy to get impatient, it might be easy to feel like your own life is moving too slowly. Try to be patient, even when you want everything all at once. You have so much time. You won’t get left behind and you won’t get stuck. There are stories that can unfold slowly, there are stories so full of texture and sweetness and light, there are stories that can unfold in stranger ways than you can predict. Keep moving, keep living, keep your eyes open.

Libra: This week you can feel so present in your own skin. You can feel your feet on the ground, you can feel the air on your face, you can hear the song of the world in your ears. You can feel peace if you need peace, you can feel strength if you need strength, you can come into your own. You can find yourself in storms, you can find yourself in mountains, you can find yourself in sweet foggy air. Try to be gentle with the people you care about. Try to be tender with your own self.

Scorpio: This week you can find your power, you can find your center, you can find your balance again in this weird shaky world. Walk through the streets of your city watch all the life all around you, watch the buildings and the faces and the trees and the concrete. You can be strong enough to get so wild. Listen to the songs that remind you of the rhythm of your own body. Listen to the songs that remind you of your bright voice. Listen to the songs that remind you what your own best confidence feels like.

Sagittarius: This is a week for stretching your muscles, it’s a week for testing your abilities, it’s a week for taking the wildest flying leaps you can manage. This is a week for doing the things you don’t yet know how to do. You can learn how to move by moving, you can learn how to live by living, you can learn how to speak by speaking. You don’t have to wait for anything. You don’t need permission. You can imagine the life you want into being. You can work magic, just by trying.

Capricorn: This week, hard work can keep your head clear and your blood flowing. This week, you can get a little lost in the projects that you care about. You can write the stories you need to read, you can sing the songs you need to hear, you can see the world you need taking shape around you. If you keep moving, your vision will be clear and your sleep can be sweet. You can follow the golden stars above your head, you can follow the lights of the city around you, you can follow your own heartbeat home.

Aquarius: If you start to doubt yourself this week, if you forget what you’re doing or where you’re trying to go, try to trust other people. Try not to stay stuck in your own room, even when it feels hard to go outside. Try not to stay stuck in your own head, even when your own voice sounds like tin in your ears. You can call your friends, you can make food for them, you can sit with them on porches and in parks. You can let the people who care about you call you back to yourself.

Pisces: This is a week for talismans and charms, this is a week for wearing your softest shirts, this is a week for eating the foods you like most. This is a week for magic you can touch and magic you can see and magic you can carry in your pocket. There’s so much floating through the world, so much movement, so much strangeness, so much feeling, that it’s easy to get a little lost. Try to anchor yourself to the physical world however you can. Let it guide you through your days, let it guide you through your dreams.

The Rumblr’s in-house astrologer, Madame Clairevoyant, presents her latest dispatch from the stars:

Aries: This week, something might not feel quite right, like maybe your insides feel all twisted up, like maybe your heart feels sore in your chest, like maybe your thoughts are heavy and weird. Try not to get lost inside yourself. Try not to let your racing brain make you too sad for the world. Focus on things outside you, maybe. Focus on surfaces. Get your hair cut, or wear different clothes, or just look at your face in the mirror. Let this work like magic; this can work like a spell.

Taurus: This is a week for traveling, it’s a week for moving, it’s a week not to stay still or sit at home too much, if you can help it. Take a bus to a faraway city. Watch the green earth from an airplane, from a mountain, from your roof. You don’t have to feel trapped, not in your your town, not in your body, not in your head. Listen to songs that stay in your head. Listen to songs that keeps you company as you move through your days. Listen to songs that sing you to sleep at night.

Gemini: This week you can catch your balance, you can hit your stride, you can feel like gold. This week you can let go of the the feelings that are too heavy, the ones that don’t even move you anymore, the ones that have haunted you the most. The changes you’ve made in your life will start bloom and glow, this week. Your desires can sparkle in front of you. Your future can shine. Go to the beach, go to the pool, smell flowers and sunscreen in the air. Listen to songs full of motion and songs full of light.

Cancer: You might feel scattered this week, you might feel split, you might feel turned around. You might feel like you aren’t even solid, like you’re full of air, like you’re full of water, like you’re full of dreams. Try not to let it worry you. Try not to think that you need to be doing more than you are. This is a week for small kindnesses and small joys. This is a week for being so good to the people in your life. Listen to your favorite song on repeat. Try to believe that you are enough.

Leo: This week you might feel your blood hot in your veins, you might feel lightning in your head, you might feel a storm brewing in your heart. You can feel like a witch this week; you can feel like the sun. This is a week for tapping into powers that have stayed dormant inside you. This is a week for learning that you are so much weirder than you thought you were. Listen to songs without words, listen to songs full of words you don’t understand, listen to songs sung in the language of your dreams.

Virgo: You can be so weird this week, you can be so bright, you can do everything you want to do and nothing that you don’t. You can be your own best self this week, or your strangest self, or your bravest self, or the self who shines like the sun. If you keep being as kind as you can, if you keep moving even when you’re afraid, everything dark can fall away. Listen to songs that bring you back to a younger version of yourself. Listen to songs that make you sing.

Libra: This week, you don’t have to work too much and you don’t have to try too hard. This is a week for watching, for waiting, for giving yourself over to the songs in your dreams and the pull of the moon. If you’re patient, if you don’t hurry, you can watch your whole life start to bloom. You can learn so many kinds of magic if you’re willing to move a little slowly this week, if you live with your eyes open and your feet on the ground and your windows rolled down.

Scorpio: This week can be so full of joy, full of sweet sunny mornings and tender blue nights. This week can be full of light and full of easy goodness, and that can be enough for you right now. You don’t have to be serious and you don’t have to be hard and you don’t have to bear the full weight of the world on your back. You can let yourself float a little bit, you can let yourself fly, you can let the world be kind to you. You can be kind to yourself.

Sagittarius: Everything might turn out different than you expected, this week. Everything might turn out better than you hoped. Your predictions might turn out to be wrong this week, and this is such a blessing. It’s such a gift not to be right, sometimes. It’s such a gift to be surprised by the world’s sweetness, sometimes. It’s such a gift to watch your days fill with brighter colors than you ever thought you could see. It can be so good to feel how small you are, this week. Every word you hear can sound like music.

Capricorn: This week, you don’t have to look at the stars, and you don’t have to dream about the future, and you don’t have to feel the ghosts of your old selves all around you. You can just be quietly alive in your own body, quietly alive in your own small part of the world. All you have to do is keep breathing, all you have to do is remember the ways you’re alive. Sit outside, or take a bath, or watch a baseball game, or eat fruit that stains your hands and popsicles that stain your teeth.

Aquarius: This week is about knowing the shape of your own weird emotions; this week is about knowing the size of the love and the need you carry inside you. You don’t have to be sad about the things you don’t have. You don’t ever have to feel like you aren’t enough. You can know what you need to keep living, if you pay attention. You can know how to find the truest joy. You can be so kind to yourself, you can find ways to rely on your own heart. Buy yourself flowers, bake yourself a pie.

Pisces: This is a week for finding your wildest bravery. This is a week for feeling your heart beat. It’s okay to risk embarrassment, it’s okay to risk falling, it’s okay to feel so much ambition you can hardly breathe, so much desire you can hardly see. Let the bright future swell like the ocean. It’s okay if you don’t know what you’re doing and it’s okay if you don’t know the rules. It’s okay to put your dignity on the line sometimes. It’s okay to be humbled by your wild desires.
