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

Aries: This week is for letting yourself get weirder, for letting your dreams get louder, for growing into your truest self. You can talk the way you want, you can move the way you want, you can tell the stories that beat hardest in your chest. You can use whatever tools you have; you can use whatever tools you need. It’s okay to rely on honesty or on pop songs or on your friends. It’s okay to live quietly and it’s okay to live loud, just keep working to be generous. Keep working to be kind.

Taurus: You might feel strange this week, you might feel like you’re living in so many worlds at once. You might feel split between the earth and the sky, split between the afternoon and the night, split between your bright inner life and the world outside, full of soil and trees and concrete. Try to remember that you don’t have to be whole all the time. You don’t have to make sense. You don’t have to tell your life like it’s a story. Stay honest and keep living and you can find everything you need.

Gemini: This is a week for big projects and hard work; this is a week for bright colors and things you aren’t even sure you’re ready for. You can find so much magic inside yourself. You can find so much bright strength just by leaving the house every day, just by moving. You can surprise yourself with how much you’re capable of. Drink so much water, drink so much coffee, buy an old sewing machine, build a garden bed. There are so many places you can find energy this week. There’s so much you can do.

Cancer: When you look in the mirror this week, when you look out the window, when you look up at the sky or out at the ocean, you might get so restless. When you walk through the streets of your city this week you might feel parallel worlds and possible futures tugging at you, aching in your heart, singing in your dreams. This restlessness can make your imagination so big and bright, but try not to let it distract you too much. Don’t forget your own body, don’t forget your own friends, don’t forget to go outside.

Leo: This is a week for living a little wild; this is a week for trusting your luck, for trusting weird coincidences, for trusting the stars above you and the breeze in your bedroom at night. Try not to think too much; try not to worry. You are where you’re supposed to be, and that could mean so many things. You are making the right choices, and that can mean so many things. Trust your body and trust your feet. Write letters to the person you love the most. Write poems that you’ll never show anyone but yourself.

Virgo: This week you might feel a little bit small in the world, and this can be such a good thing. You aren’t the only person in the world; you aren’t the only person who has seen the things you’ve seen and lived the things you’ve lived. You are never alone, but still there’s so much space to breathe. There’s so much space to dream. Spend some of your days alone. Spend some of your days with friends. Spend some of your days on crowded streets just watching the huge world move all around you.

Libra: This week, it might be easy to live in the echoes inside your own head; it might be easy to spend your days in your memories and desires. Your funny weird thoughts can light you up, they can give you new energy, they can open up new pathways inside your head. Go on walks by yourself. Stay up late listening to songs about love and fire. You can dream whole new worlds into being this week, but leave a light on in your window. Don’t forget the way back home.

Scorpio: This week can be so good and so bright and so wild, and still, the world around you might not quite make sense. The words and stories of your life might bend and shake; the joy in your heart might be too much to be contained. You can live so well this week. You can break so many rules. You can let your dreams overflow. Watch the sky change, watch the shadows move across the ground. Draw pictures of your dreams. Draw pictures of the future and watch the world shift.

Sagittarius: This is a week for keeping yourself busy; this is a week for staying in motion as much as you can. It’s so easy to get caught up in reflection, caught up in dreams, caught up in an invisible future. Sometimes it’s enough just to move, sometimes it’s enough just to live, sometime it’s enough just to keep walking. Spend your days cooking, spend your days building things, spend your days on your bicycle. Work so hard that your sleep is easy and sweet. Work so hard that you can stop worrying for a while.

Capricorn: This week, choose a magic to believe in and let it make you powerful. Choose a magic to believe in and let it fill your heart. There’s so much sorrow in the world. There is so much strangeness. There’s so much light. There are so many ways to survive and get older and keep living, and you can believe in whatever weird forces you need. Listen to songs that sound like the sky. Listen to songs that sound like the color red. Listen to songs that can show you a way out.

Aquarius: This can be a good week for getting unstuck from the things that have been weighing you down. You don’t have to run away and you don’t have to leave your whole life behind, but you can take small slow steps out of dark rooms and sad places, this week. You can find new sources of energy, you can find new sources of joy, you can find so many ways to sustain yourself. Believe in your own motion. Believe in your own bravery. Open your windows, or cut your sleeves off your shirt, or go swimming all day.

Pisces: You might feel a little lonely this week, and this can be okay, this can be so good. This is a week for remembering what it’s like inside your head when there’s no one else around. This is a week for quiet independence and quiet joy. Take walks alone and let your thoughts grow and move and change colors. Open your windows to the sweet early morning air, or take walks under green trees, or read books that make you feel full of light and courage. You can remember who you are. You can return to yourself.

Today’s image was made specially for Madame Clairevoyant by Jen May.

“For a few months when I was eighteen I was having sex with someone who had faded scars all up and down his arms, small short scars from a knife, maybe a razor blade. I would look at them when he wore t-shirts and I would look at them when we were naked and I wanted to run my fingers along every single one. I touched them a few times, but always lightly, like I didn’t mean it. I don’t know, I thought I’d embarrass him. For a few months when I was nineteen I was having sex with someone with little stretch marks all over his shoulders and chest and stomach and I wanted to stare at them but I tried not to; I wanted to touch them but I was scared to make him feel strange in his body. Later that same year I had sex just once with someone who I met on the bus back home from school, who had straight blond hair and tattoos on his calves and no scars at all on his body. He bought me some beers at the bar out past the mall, then brought me back to his place where he put his hand around my throat and laughed and laughed. I stayed the night anyway, then left his house early in the morning and walked all the way home down Loudon Road and over the river, wondering how close I’d just come to dying, making a list in my head of what the pros and cons would’ve been.”

Ungrateful Skin by Claire Comstock-Gay | Two Serious Ladies

A very important melty, hurty, yearnful story by our own Claire Comstock-Gay, who you may better know as Madame Clairevoyant. This is her first published piece of fiction!

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

Aries: You might start to doubt yourself week, you might start to feel lost, you might wonder what you’re doing. This is not the worst thing. This is a week for strange growth, for opening yourself up. It’s a week for asking for love when you need it, for asking for help when you need it, for letting other people surprise you. Listen to the radio. Listen to the sounds of your city. You won’t be alone, even when you feel a little shaky on your own feet. You can be understood, even when wild inside your head.

Taurus: This week your whole world can be in motion in the best kind of way. This week the air around you can feel fresh and clean; this week your whole body can feel new. You’ll be able to rediscover hidden reserves of strength inside yourself, you’ll be able to rediscover the bright gold at your core, you’ll be able to find precious things that you thought you’d lost. You can quiet your bad thoughts, this week. You can believe in so many kinds of magic. You can believe in so many kinds of love.

Gemini: This week, if you need it, you can find so much brightness in the sky, you can find so much funny warmth in your heart, you can find enough goodness to live on. You can find enough strange quiet joys to keep your heart beating, to keep the blood flowing through your veins, to keep your dreams full of color. Just keep your eyes open, just don’t stay inside all day, and you can find love that will move you, love as hot as the sun, love as sweet as a song.

Cancer: In the warm soft days ahead, there is going to be so much magic available to you, more than you know, more than you can even imagine. There’s going to be so much you can see, so much you can do, so much in the air. You can let your days fill with color, you can let your nights fill with song, you can charm every person around you, you can fill your own heart with weird bright joy. Try to believe in your own powers. Try to believe in your own body.

Leo: This week, the world is going to open up for you. This week, your world is going to fill with light. You’re capable of so much more than you think; you have so many more choices than you can see. This week you can find all the tools that you need to build the life you want. You can find new roads, new pathways, new doors. You can find the people you need the most, right now. Get a new haircut. Get a new pair of shoes. Get a library card. Get a bus ticket to go somewhere weird.

Virgo: This is going to be a week for motion, it’s going to be a week for blue skies and sunshine and highways, it’s going to be a week for traveling with only the things that you need. You don’t have to carry every sorrow with you. You don’t have to keep every piece of doubt all locked up in your heart. It’s okay to leave these things behind, sometimes. It’s okay to forget, sometimes. It’s okay to watch the moon change shape and the clouds move across the sky. It’s okay just to keep living.

Libra: This week, when you don’t know what to do or when you don’t know where you’re going, try to let yourself be moved by desire. Let the things that you want map out your way; let them light up the path. It can be hard to want so much, but the wanting can guide you. The wanting can fuel you if you don’t hide from it, if you don’t keep it locked up. Let your thoughts wander and keep your heart open. Try to remember your wildest good dreams.

Scorpio: This week, the light might change or the wind might shift; this week, there can be so much room for you to grow, for you to make choices, for you to keep moving. You don’t have to move fast and you don’t have to know where you’re going, just don’t stand still for too long. Try to use your time to build the life you want in the world you want. Try to treat your life like weird magic thing that it is. Try to keep filling your heart with joy.

Sagittarius: This week it can be easy to get restless. It can be easy to get a little lost in thoughts of all the different lives you could be living, all the changes you could make, all the places you could go. This can be thrilling and bright, but it can get overwhelming so fast. It can make you forget about the life you’re living. Try to keep your heart open to the place where you live. Try to be there for the people you love. Try to remember your own feet on solid ground.

Capricorn: The world might seem too full of heaviness this week; the world might feel like a weird airless place. It’s so easy to forget your own powers, when the world feels this way. It’s so easy to forget all the ways you can make your own light. You can paint your walls yellow, you can paint your nails gold, you can just keep breathing. Let this be a week of resistance. Let this be a week of strength. Let this be a week for living well and staying kind in this big strange world.

Aquarius: The world around you might seem very wild, this week. The sky above you might seem too big or too bright. The road in front of you might look too long, too strange, too dark. It’s all going to be okay, and all you have to do right now is keep living, however you can. You don’t have to worry about everything in your life, right now. You don’t have to worry about futures and stories and plans. Just drink enough water. Get enough sleep. Call your friends when you need them. Eat foods that make you strong.

Pisces: This week, when you most need it, you’ll be able to find a small place inside of you that’s as hard as a diamond and as bright as the sun. This week, when it really matters, you can find a corner of your heart that truly knows your own worth, that can protect your from all darkness. This is a week for believing in your own bright magic. This is a week for standing up against everything that would have you stay quiet and everything that would have you be small.

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

Aries: This is a week for getting out of your own head; this is a week for living in the world. This week will be so full of good things you couldn’t have come up with on your own, good things you couldn’t even have imagined. Go to the movies, go to the beach, work in the garden. Go to the library and take out books you’ve never heard of. Talk to somebody you’ve never met and just listen to the things they have to tell you. There’s so much room to grow. There are so many things to see.

Taurus: This is a week to feel your strength so fully; this is a week to feel love and wildness in your veins. This is a week to stand up for everything that you need; it’s a week to ask for every good thing you’ve been working toward. Turn up your music. Open your curtains to the sunlight Think of the life that you’re building for yourself, the one that you see when you close your eyes. Try to be bold, try to honor your own wild desires, and the world will reward you this week.

Gemini: If you feel a little strange this week, if you feel a little lost, if your neighborhood feels a little empty, try to focus on all the things that keep you connected to the rest of the world. Think of the people you love, think of the people who move through the sames spaces you do, think of the people who’ve seen the same things you’ve seen. Think of all the strangers you share this world with. Let these connections with other people move you to live well. Let them make you feel less alone.

Cancer: This is a week for clearing your head, it’s a week for making space to move, it’s a week for remembering how to breathe. You can dust out the weird dark corners of your heart. You can  face down your loudest doubts and change them into something smaller, something empty, something you can look straight at and not feel afraid. Your days can feel so good this week, and your nights can make you feel strong and alive. Listen to songs that make you feel like you’re swimming. Listen to songs that make you feel like you could fly.

Leo: This is a week is going to feel so soft, this week’s going to feel so good, this week the whole world is going to be kind to you. You’ve been working so much, you’ve been trying so hard, and this is a week for relaxing for a minute. This is a week for settling into the bright life you’ve been building for yourself. Try not to work harder than you have to, right now. Sleep late if you can, or eat lunch outside, or go swimming, or convince yourself that this sweet summer could last forever.

Virgo: If your days get strange or boring this week, or if you can’t stop worrying about your world, you’re going to find deep wells of bravery inside of you. You’re going to find so much light. You’re going to find enough compassion to map your own way through the mountains, to make all the light that you need. You can be so kind to the people you love, this week. You can be so gentle with your own tender heart. You can be brave enough to believe in your own future, brave enough to believe things will be ok.

Libra: This is going to be a week for bright and strange kinds of honesty. This is going to be a week for looking at your life with clear eyes. Pay attention to the music playing in your heart. Pay attention to the colors in the corner of your vision. Pay attention to each prickle on your skin and each glimmer in the back of your memory. This does not have to be a week for action, just a week for looking directly at the truths you’ve already been carrying and a week for calling them by name.

Scorpio: This is a week for telling your own stories and building your own life. The world has its own plans, always, but your body belongs only to you. Your heart belongs to you. Your stories belong to you, and there’s so much you can do with them. You can choose which stories to tell yourself before you fall asleep at night. You can choose which stories will keep you alive, which stories to believe, which ones to share. You can choose which stories to sing and which ones to forget. You can do anything.

Sagittarius: This week you’re going to be able to see the funny edges of your world, the gaps between the world as you want it to be and the world that exists. There’s so much you can do in this in-between space. There are so many ways you can move. There’s so much room to grow bright and unafraid. There are so many golden dreams that could be yours. Try not to get overwhelmed by this. Don’t worry about changing your whole life. Just focus on waking up in the morning and opening the window and moving your feet.

Capricorn: This week your days might feel bendy and strange, they might feel tangled, they might feel too weird to live inside. It’s going to be ok, and for now just focus on ways to keep moving. For now just focus on being good to your friends. Focus on being good to your neighbors, or your cat, or the plants on your windowsill. It’s ok to get a little sappy this week. It’s ok to use love as a way to survive in the world. It’s ok to trust that all your kindness will come back to you someday.

Aquarius: This week, try to set the rhythms of your body to the rhythms of the world. Try to let yourself slow down in this summer haze. Don’t let anything rush you. Watch the sweet morning sunrise, feel the day heat up. Watch the afternoon storms roll in, slow and heavy. Listen to the crickets outside your window at night and listen to quiet songs until you fall asleep. It’s ok to let your energies cycle like the seasons. It’s ok to let your feelings change like the weather. It’s ok to trust yourself to know what you need.

Pisces: This is a week for nurturing the goodness inside you in every way you can. It’s a week for treating yourself with all of the compassion you can find. It’s a week for taking some risks, too, but only the ones that will let you grow, only the ones that can help you live. Don’t spread yourself too thin. Don’t wind yourself too tight. Go a little easy on yourself. Spend your days cooking and eating with people you love. Spend your days reading stories with happy endings. Spend your days staring up at the sky.

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

Aries: This week you can feel so full of energy, so full of movement. This week you can feel your own bright thoughts busting right through the walls of your skull. This is a week for running and talking and singing, a week for moving however you need, just to relieve some of the pressure inside your own head. You can do so much, this week. You can conduct electricity. You can work magic. Think of yourself like the moon, think of yourself like the tides. Think of all the ways you can share your wild light.

Taurus: This week you’re going to feel so good in the world, so right, so much at ease. This is a week for living in the world, for being with other people, for talking and laughing and listening to everybody’s funny bright stories. You can find so much kindness this week, and you can find so much generosity. Try not to doubt this, try not to worry. Other people can surprise you this week. Other people can sustain you. Other people can give you what you need to keep living.

Gemini: This week, if you need to, you can escape from every hard bad thing in your live. You can escape into books, into dreams, into places far from home, into lives far from your own. This is a week for letting yourself float away from your own heavy sorrows or your own tangled thoughts. You can get some rest, and you can learn so many things about yourself and about the cool green world. Don’t get too far from yourself that you can’t come back, but let yourself wander a little; let yourself dream.

Cancer: The world might wobble underneath your feet this week, and your thoughts might get loopy and weird. Try not to be afraid. Try to relax into everything that’s coming your way. You don’t have to know where you’re going this week, and you don’t have to know what you want. Just try to focus on your own bright heartbeats. Try to focus on the sun coming through your windows. Try to focus on your bravest thoughts. The world can surprise you in bright good ways. The world can lead you to the home you need.

Leo: This week will be all about mornings, all about the sunrise, all about dark skies breaking into light. Everything bad in your life can crack wide open; all the shadows inside your head can melt away, for now. This is so lucky and it’s so good and it’s going to be easier to live than it’s been in a while. You can watch your world brighten, you can dream so big, or you can just let your heart breathe. You can spend your days with your friends, you can spend your days just in love with the world.

Virgo: The world around you might not quite make sense, and your days won’t quite move the way they should, and the ground might feel strange underneath you. This week will be so full of goodness and light, just not the goodness and light you’ve been expecting. Instead you can find something different, brighter, weirder. Don’t hold out for the joys you were waiting for. Try to let your heart open wide to the joys that are showing themselves to you right now, wild and real. Talk to strangers. Drive to places you’ve never been before.

Libra: This is going to be a week for big skies, a week for wide open spaces, a week for wild expansive landscapes in the world and inside your head. You can be a little restless with your days. You can be a little reckless with your love. You can run wild through your dusty afternoons. You can feel desire fill your whole body. Let this restlessness carry you. Let it sustain you through so many hot afternoons. Let it remind you what it’s like to be so brave. Let it remind you how big your world can be. 

Scorpio: The air can feel a little thin around you this week, like suddenly anything is possible, like suddenly you can really move. You can get unstuck, you can dream in new colors, you could almost learn to fly. If you need them, you can make big changes this week. You can grow into your truest self. You can surprise everyone you know with how bright you can suddenly shine. Listen to stories that move you. Listen to stories that show you your own self. Listen to stories that take so long to tell.

Sagittarius: If you’ve been struggling, if things have all been a little strange, the pieces are going to fall back into place this week. Your brain can make sense again; your world can become whole. This is a week for live in green summer brightness; this is a week for living in warm summer air. This is a week for seeing yourself in the streets and the clouds and the trees, it’s a week for recognizing your own face in the mirror again. You can return to yourself. You can find your way. You can feel at home.

Capricorn: This week, suddenly, you can find yourself energetic and bright and full of fire. This week, you can believe in yourself, you can believe your own eyes, you can believe in your hands and your skin and your feet. You can be moved by love for your city. You can be moved by faith in your weird thoughts. You can get so much done, if you want, or you can spend your days listening to songs in your backyard and either way it’s going to be so good, it’s going to be important, it’s going to be right.

Aquarius: This week, as the sun rises and sets, as your days get warmer and denser and sweeter, you might wake up and find that suddenly things feel easier, suddenly things make sense. This week you can settle into the life you’ve been building. You can settle in to your own body. Spend your days swimming, spend your days sweating, spend your days eating. Think of all the things your body knows how to do. Think of all the ways you know how to be kind. Think of the shapes of your best dreams.

Pisces: When you walk out your door each morning, you can find new ways to see and new ways to live, if you look. You’ll be able to understand so many strange languages, so many secret codes. Things you’ve been struggling with will give way and become easier, more manageable, small enough to hold in your hand. Write your wishes down on paper and watch them become poetry; watch them become magic. Call your friends and tell them your secrets. Listen to the crickets outside your house at night. Watch the fireflies. Watch the golden moon.

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

Aries: This is a week for taking care of yourself; this is a week for not backing down. It’s a week for trusting yourself, it’s a week for reminding yourself how much your own needs matter. It’s ok to need love, it’s ok to need kindness, it’s ok to just need to be left alone. It’s ok to walk out when you have to; it’s ok to get up and leave. You can love yourself enough to survive. Listen to songs that fill you with life, or read books with happy endings, or watch movies that make you cry.  

Taurus: This week, the world might feel so hazy and warm around you; this week, your days might feel so slow. Try to match the rhythm of your heart to the rhythm of the world. Try to live a little slower. It’s ok to need a break; it’s ok to need some rest. Listen to the sounds in the air, and listen to the rain, and try to trust your own skin. Sitting on the porch and watching the sky can be enough, this week. Spending a quiet day with someone you love can be enough.

Gemini: This is a week for letting your heart and your feet and your racing thoughts slow down a little. It’s a week for letting yourself get lazy and calm, for letting yourself heal. Let yourself move through the world slowly enough to notice each crack in the concrete, each bird, each blade of grass. Let yourself enjoy quiet moments and still moments. If you need to, you can spend the whole week sitting on your porch or sitting on your roof or gazing out your open window, feeling the breeze on your face, feeling all the world’s potential.

Cancer: The future will sparkle and shine in front of you this week, all bright and illuminated, but first this week, try to use your time this week to finish the things you’ve started. This is a week for completing projects, it’s a week for endings, it’s a week for closing some doors behind you. It’s easy to feel like this makes your world smaller, like it is a loss, but endings can make your future so much bigger. Closing some doors can make your vision so bright and clear.

Leo: This is a week for slowing down; this is a week for living in stillness. The roads around you can come into focus, and your dreams can get vivid and bright. You don’t need to worry so much this week, just open your windows and watch the world move in the sunlight. Read the books that light up your heart with joy. You can look forward with clear eyes. You can look back with a clear heart. You can remember what you’re seeking and you can remember what you need the most.

Virgo: It might feel a little hazy inside your thoughts this week; you might feel a little dreamy; you might get so distracted by all the colors and light around you. It’s a good week to let your mind float and wander, a little bit. It’s a good week to get a little lost. You won’t move in a straight line this week, and that’s ok. Your days won’t make total sense right now and that’s ok too. You will be able to find your balance. You’ll be able to live so well in this sweet strange world.

Libra: This week is going to be filled with closeness, with warmth, with love. It can feel like heaven but it can get too crowded, too tight, too much. Do what you can to give yourself room to breathe, room to move. Give yourself time to let your thoughts get loopy and weird. Drive on empty highways. Swim in the ocean or swim in a lake and look at the sky above you. There’s so much space for you to live. There’s so much space for your dreams to wander through. There’s so much space for closeness and love.

Scorpio: Everything might feel so weird this week, like you’re disconnected from your own world and disconnected from your own self. It can be a week of strange days, and it can be a week of finding new ways to live in your body, new ways to live inside your thoughts. You can shed the layers that have been weighing you down. You can run until your muscles are sore. You can let your dreams get so big that you can’t ignore them. You can let your desires get so big that you have to call them by name.

Sagittarius: Your world might feel a little lonely this week, and you might get a little restless. The sky might feel too empty, like there’s no solid ground, like there’s too much space between where you’re living and where you want to be. This is ok, just try not to let the melancholy sink too deep into your bones. When it gets to be too much, call the people you’ve been meaning to call. Write to the people you miss. You can fight off your sad days by working so hard to care for other people.

Capricorn: Your days might be a little tangled and a little strange this week, and that’s ok. You can let the world be a little complicated. You don’t have to make sense of each moment of each day. You don’t always have to know just where you’re going. You don’t have to decode every word, every sigh, every star up above you. This week, it’s enough that they’re there, it’s enough that you’re breathing, it’s enough that your world is rich and bright and blue and green. It’s enough to be kind. It’s enough to keep trying.

Aquarius: You might not realize your own strength this week, you might not realize your own wild power, but when the world isn’t right this week you can rise up like a flame, you can rise up like the sea, you can get so loud, you can make everything better. Even if you don’t quite feel this energy inside of you, try to have faith that it’s there. Even when you want to doubt yourself, try to believe in your own wildness, in your strangeness, in all the things you can do.

Pisces: This is a week for living in small moments of kindness and small moments of joy. This can be a week for living in colors and textures and dreams. You don’t need to seek out stories that are bigger than this; you don’t need to make your own life more complicated than it already is. Take walks down the streets you like best; take walks through places that make you believe in the magic of your own life. Read the books that are the kindest, the most generous. Be good to the people you love.

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

Aries: The world can open up all around you this week, if you pay attention. You can find whole new roads and passages, if you know where to look. The world will offer you choices, the world will offer you maps, the world will give you so much space to move. Listen to the sounds outside your window at night, and watch the summer air around you shimmer and glow. You can change your whole life this week, if you want. You can live in possibilities. You can take wild risks. You can live like a braver version of yourself.

Taurus: This week, each morning is going to bring new colors to your world. Each sunrise is going to show you different ways you can live. The life you’ve been living might feel like it can’t quite sustain you anymore. It might feel like it isn’t enough. Try not to be afraid. Try to let this week feel like a blessing, like a gift. There is so much unexpected goodness coming to you. There are so many kinds of brightness waiting behind each corner. There is so much strange joy to be found, if you keep your eyes open.

Gemini: This week, you will be able to see the world so honestly and so clearly. You’ll be able to see all the contours and the patterns and the limits of the world as it is now, and you’ll be able to see a world that might exist someday. Think about the world that doesn’t yet exist, and think about the self you’re only beginning to grow into. Try to believe in your own clear vision. Wake up early to watch the birds and the sky. Stay up late to read about science and magic.

Cancer: You’ll find moments this week when you can live exactly how you need to. You’ll find moments this week when you can be strong and strange and bright. They might be big moments or they might be small and quiet, but try not to doubt this weird freedom. Try to feel it in heart and in your blood and in your bones. Think of yourself as a storm, as a tide, as something wild and unstoppable. You don’t have to be humble, you don’t have to be small, you just have to be kind.

Leo: You might feel a little ferocious this week, and you might feel a wildness flowing through your veins, and you might feel some fire in your heart. This week can terrify you, and it can change everything, and it can be so great. Let your own wild energy warm you. Let it move you. Let it make you a little impulsive, maybe. Try not to get tangled in worries. It’s ok to move without knowing quite where you’re going. It’s ok to trust your weird instincts. It’s ok to be driven by love.

Virgo: Things can go your way this week; your days can be so full of luck and light. It will be a week for learning how to live with your successes, with your happy days, with your best shining moments. It’s so easy to doubt yourself. It’s so easy to doubt your bright beating heart and your wild spinning dreams. It’s so easy to forget how much joy you deserve. Do what you can to stay unashamed. Do what you can not to back down. Try to let your good days make you thoughtful and generous and kind.

Libra: This is a week for moving a little slowly; this is a week for watching where you’re going and watching where you’ve been. You’ll be able to see so clearly the green world all around you, and you’ll be able to see so clearly all the ways you’ve been shaped by the mountains and highway and cities of your life. Don’t think so much about maps, just think of the colors outside your window and the sky above your head. Let your dreams shift and brighten and blossom with the landscape around you.

Scorpio: The world might feel a little softer than usual this week. The rooms of your house are might feel so quiet; the sky over your head might seem so hazy, so sweet. You can afford to be a little soft right now, so try to spend your days storing all the kindness you can find in your bones, in your hair, in your skin. Try to hold on to whatever gentleness you need. Sit and dream and laugh with your friends. Take a nap, or take a bath, or listen to your favorite quiet songs.

Sagittarius: This week won’t be difficult and it won’t be so weird, but it might be a little slow, it might be a little quiet. It will be a week to live for yourself. This week you can find peace where you most need it; this week you can find whatever quiet kinds of goodness you need to survive. Go to the movies by yourself, or go on long lonely walks under the trees, or spend days with your friends who don’t mind when you get a little lost in dreams.

Capricorn: If the world around you starts to feel a little too tight this week, a little too dense, trust that you know what to do to make your own life better. You’ve been learning how to live the way you need to, and you’ve been learning how to care for yourself, and you can trust your own thoughts this week, you can trust your own memories, you can trust your own limbs. Hold on to small good moments. Go swimming, or walk your dog, or watch the stars on clear quiet nights. Drink water. Keep breathing.

Aquarius: It might get really loud inside your head, this week; it might get so busy. This is a week for doing what you can to calm your wild swirling thoughts. It’s a week for drinking tea, or for running until you’re too tired to worry, or for sitting out on the porch, breathing, feeling the sun on your face. It’s a week for remembering that the world is bigger than your echoing brain. Talk to other people. Listen to their stories. Let their kind words fill up the air all around you.

Pisces: The world might wear you out a little bit this week; the world might ask a lot of you. This is not the worst thing — you are going to be so important to so many people this week. Try not to let it all overwhelm you. Try not to let it consume you. Leave yourself time to do the things that can sustain you. Leave yourself time to do the things that will fill your heart with goodness. Eat the foods that make you feel strong. Read the poems that make you feel whole.

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

Aries: Try not to worry if the sun shines too hot and bright this week. Try not to worry if your city moves fast and strange. This week will seem intense, maybe, but it will be fine. It can surprise you in good gentle ways. Just do what you can to keep yourself happy; do what you can to keep yourself safe. Call your friends and go to the movies. Call your friends and go to the pool. Call your friends and tell them you miss them. Tell them they’re going to be okay.

Taurus: This is a week for living in your body as much as you live in your head. This is a week for feeling your blood and your bones and your limbs, all solid and strange and real. It’s easy to get caught in your dreams, it’s easy to get caught in words, it’s easy to get caught in sorrows you can’t even hold in your hand. Try to leave your house. Take a long walk, or take a long bath. Let your body remember what it can do. Let energy move in you until you can breathe again.

Gemini: This is a week for believing in your own life so much it makes you dizzy. It’s a week for believing in your own future so much it makes you laugh. It’s a week for being wild enough to trust yourself, to trust the tools you have, to trust the desires that sparkle and flare in your heart. Try to trust the life you can see ahead of you. Spend your time with the people or books or art that believe in you. Spend your time with the songs that help you live best.

Cancer: This is a week for being as open as you can to the whole huge world. This is a week for reading every day. This is a week for doing everything you can to help your heart and your imagination grow so strong. It’s a week to let them grow as wild and immense as the sea and the sky. It’s easy to forget how big the world is. It’s easy to forget how many things you can do. Remind yourself how big the world can be; remind yourself how big you can be.

Leo: This week, every moment and every color and every sound might feel so important. This week the world might feel heavy with significance, like each step you take could change the entire world, like every word you hear might be a clue, a secret, a sign. Let this carry you as far as you need it to, but still, let some moments stay small. Let some words just float on by you in the sweet afternoon breeze. Give yourself space to sit, to wait, to listen to songs that don’t mean much but that make your heart feel light.

Virgo: This week you might feel a little solitary. This week you might feel consumed by dreams. This week you might feel immersed in loneliness that feels bendy and strange, or a loneliness that feels like home, or loneliness that feels like an empty road, or loneliness that feels like a sweet clear night. Let it thrill you, let it hold you, let it show you weird bright parts of yourself. Still try to remember the other people in your life, your neighbors or your sisters or your friends. Don’t forget the world outside your own head.

Libra: Your days will be busy and full this week; there’s going to be so much to do. It might get overwhelming and it might get annoying, but try not to let this stuff loom. Try not to let it lurk in the dark corners of your house and your heart. Try to work as hard as you can, and prove to yourself that you can be brave, and show yourself how good you are at living in the world. Try to save some time to nap and dream and eat popsicles on the porch.

Scorpio: You can find connections in strange places, this week. You can find bright sparks you won’t expect. You can find small moments of perfect warmth and you can find small moments of unexpected quiet love. Follow these connections. Let them lead you through this week. Let them lead you to strange places, to bright mornings, to friendships that are weird and important, friendships that can change everything. Listen to songs that make your heart beat fast. Listen to songs that make you believe in so many different kinds of love.

Sagittarius: When you watch the sun rise and set this week, when you watch the plants on your street flower and bloom, when you watch your own sweet face in the mirror, you might feel the passage of time so strongly. You might feel so rushed to live a good life, so rushed to live the life you need. Try to slow down, just a little, just enough. Try not to let your heart get so frantic. Take a bath, drink a cup of tea in the morning, call someone you miss. There’s plenty of time.

Capricorn: In your still quiet moments this week, when you have time to yourself, work on fixing the small things that have been making your life less good. Make repairs to your house or your bicycle, or mend the holes in your shirts, or apologize to someone you’ve been unkind to.Do the things you’ve been putting off. Do what you have to do. It’s not the most fun and it’s not the most wild, but it can make being a live feel so much better. It can make you feel strong. It can make your days feel golden.

Aquarius: This week, as you move through crowded places and empty places, remind yourself that you are not alone in the world. There are people who know you. There are people who see you, clearly and true. There are people who can show you small bright moments of kindness. Try to remind yourself that you share this world with other people. There are moments that belong only to you, and there are long looping hallways in your own head, but try not to get lost inside yourself this week. Try to treat other people right.

Pisces: This is a week for trusting yourself to know what you need. This is a week for trusting your own desires, even if other people think you’re being so weird about it, even if they think you’re being picky, even if they think it doesn’t matter. You can know what matters to you. You can know who to trust and who to love. You can know what kind of light you need in your house, you can know what songs will sustain you, you can know how to spend your own days.

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

Aries: This is a week for searching, it’s a week for seeking, it’s a week for traveling through forests and fields and strange dark nights. It’s a week to keep trying and a week to keep looking, as you move on your way to the things you need most. You can accept whatever help you are offered. You can find kindness in the funniest places. You can find gold, you can find treasures, you can find your truest friends, you can find everything you need.

Taurus: This is a week for choosing the life you want. This is a week for committing to your future self. You can cultivate gardens inside yourself, you can build cities, you can nurture your brightest warmest light. Try to be brave enough to turn away from the futures that will not be enough for you. Try to be brave enough to turn away from the futures that could make you unkind. Open your curtains, open the windows, watch the world outside moving all solid and shining and real.

Gemini: This week, the world is going to feel full of potential, full of electricity. Like you can feel it on your skin, like you can feel it in your bones, like you can hear it in the thundering skies. This is a week for believing every day, every moment, that something is about to happen. This week you can find the energy to do whatever you need. This week you can find the energy to end your boredom. Listen to songs that make you feel like you could fly.

Cancer: This week is going to be about the homes you can build for yourself. This week is going to be about the family you can choose for yourself. There are so many places you can escape from and there are so many places you can come home to. There are so many different kinds of love. There are so many ways to build spaces where you can live. Spend your days working hard to love the people you love. Cook food together, or tell stories, or sit together without even talking.

Leo: You might feel a little out of control this week, like the world’s moving in ways you aren’t ready for, it’s moving in patterns you don’t recognize, and it might feel like there’s nothing you can do but go along for the ride. Try not to let it scare you. Try to do the best you can. Try to give yourself time on your own, and time with the people who understand you best, and time to sit outside and watch the clouds and the birds and the people.

Virgo: This week is for traveling on highways, this week is for driving on back roads, this week is for flying so high above the ground. Keep your eyes on the countryside, keep your eyes on the clouds, keep your eyes on the golden horizon. The world can feel so big this week. The world can feel so dense and rich and strange, and the more you move, the more you can remember who you are. The more you move, the sweeter it is to come home.

Libra: This week, in the moments when you’re alone, in the moments when the sky is dense and quiet around you, in the secret moments that belong only to you, try to be brave in your thoughts. Try to name name your biggest desires. Try to hold them in your hand, try to hold them in your thoughts, try to dream of them at night. Speak them out loud to yourself and let your words work like magic. Let your words cast spells. Let them shine when you close your eyes.

Scorpio: When you’re faced with weirdness this week, or when you’re faced with challenges, or when you’re faced with unbelievable joys, try to meet them all head on. Try not to hold anything back. Don’t save anything for later. Meet the world with your fullest strength, with all your bright hot courage, with all your funny reckless love. This is a week for being wild enough to believe in your own future. This is a week for being wild enough to believe in your own life.

Sagittarius: As you move through this week, the best choices are going to be the ones that scare you, probably. The best choices are going to be the ones that thrill you, the ones that make your heart beat fast and wild in your chest. It will be easy to see your fear is a sign that you should stop, that you should turn around, that you should go back home, but for now, try to resist that. Try to fight. Try to love this bright path you’re on and your funny jumpy heart.

Capricorn: This week, try more than ever to pay attention to the world outside of yourself. Try to pay attention to what’s not said out loud. Try to pay attention to ways you can be kind, ways you can be generous, ways you can care for your friends. Even when your blood flows so hot in your veins, even when there are storms in your heart, don’t lose sight of the way the world moves, of the greens and golds of your city, of the faces of the people in your life.

Aquarius: Your feelings are maybe going to get a little wild this week, they’re maybe going to get a little tangled. Your feelings can confuse you, and they can turn you around, and they can lead you in strange directions. When it gets too wild, remember that you don’t have to listen to your own bad thoughts. You don’t have to listen to your own unkindness. You can trust your best memories or your favorite books or the sunlight through your window. You can trust the people who love you.

Pisces: It’ll be easy to feel like you’re spinning this week, maybe. It’ll be easy to feel like you’re being pulled in a thousand different directions. It’ll be easy to feel like you could just float away. Try to hold on to whatever keeps you on solid ground. Try to hold on to whatever keeps you whole. Try to hold onto the still moments and the quiet moments. Spend your evenings on the porch with your friends, just sitting, just being together. Spend your evenings watching the moon.

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

Aries: It’s going to be easy to feel like everything is urgent, this week. It’s going to be easy to feel rushed. The world will pick up its pace around you, maybe, and it’s going to require a specific kind of bravery, a strange quiet kind of courage, to move at your own speed, to move slowly and intentionally through even the strangest of days. Try not to let the world chase you off your own path. Try not to let the world make you panic. There’s plenty of time, there’s so much time, there’s all the time you need.

Taurus: Nothing will quite make sense this week. Nothing will be quite normal. This can throw you off balance. It can be such a blessing. Let your eyes adjust to the new light and let your feet find their balance again. The things that you know best can become strange, and the strangest things can begin to make sense. It’s a week to reconsider. It’s a week to be made new. It’s a week to change your mind. Light candles, or watch the moon change. Do whatever makes the air around you feel like magic.

Gemini: The world’s going to be great this week, and the world’s going to be generous, and the world’s going to be ready to offer you so many different kinds of joy. You’re going to see the results, finally, of the things you’ve been working toward for so long. You’re going to see the results of all of your work, all of your energy, all your kindness. Try to appreciate this goodness. Listen to loud happy songs with the windows open. Feel the sun on your face and the bright sky above you.

Cancer: This is a week for honesty, it’s a week for truth that shines like the sun. This is a week that will ask you to make the difficult choices that you’ve been hiding from. You can stand tall or you can shout or you can leave and not come back, but you have to choose. Try to let the sky guide you. Try to call upon every bit of courage you’ve been holding in your bones. Apply for new jobs, or buy a bus ticket across the country, or stay where you and make your life so good.

Leo: You might feel a little lost this week, in new places or old places or the weird deep corners of your own head. It might stress you out at first, but if you can remember who you are, it’s going to be so good to lose your way. If you can remember where you came from, it’s going to be so good to forget where you’re going. Try to feel your way. Try to find your way by the light of the stars. Try to stop moving, and just watch the landscape shift and bloom around you.

Virgo: This is a week to think about other people; it is a week for generosity without bounds. This week, generosity can cure your boredom, it can ease your sorrow, it can remind you how many ways there are to live. Connections with other people can keep you solid, they can keep you honest, they can hold you to this world when you’re feeling lost and unsure. Talk to strangers or call your grandparents or spend your evenings babysitting. Fill your house with so many colors. Remember what it’s like to be needed.

Libra: You’re going to have such a clear head this week, and your imagination is going to spark and glow, and you’re going to find ways to make your world make sense. You’re going to find ways to solve the puzzles that have been haunting you. You’re going to be able to put the pieces of yourself together in ways that feel right. You’ll be able to look straight at the things that have been troubling your dreams, and you’ll be wise enough to find paths to the other side, wise enough to find the way to safety.

Scorpio: This week, the world might feel small or the world might feel dull, and your life might feel like it isn’t enough. Try to give yourself time to sit with the thoughts that won’t let you go, time for the obsessions and preoccupations that structure your life and your days and your thoughts. Don’t let yourself get bored. Don’t let your thoughts get small. Drive to the place you were born, or walk through the streets you can’t stop thinking about, or listen to the songs that won’t let you go. See what your dreaminess can show you.

Sagittarius: This is a week for moving one step at a time, for taking each day as it comes, for trying as hard as you can not to get weighed down by worries, not to get stressed out over your plans. There are so many doorways open to you, there is so much space for you to live. There are songs you haven’t heard yet, there are people you haven’t met, there are whole worlds you haven’t even imagined. You can change your course. You can change your mind. You have so much time.

Capricorn: Living’s going to feel a little bit less difficult, for now. Living’s going to feel a little bit less strange. Your body is going to feel like it belongs to you, and your dreams are going to feel fresh and safe, and you could almost cry, it’s so good. Try to live in these moments, try to live like this gentle sweet world could exist forever. Try to set goals, while the world is being kind, while the sun is shining. Make plans. Draw maps. Write your own future into being.

Aquarius: Nothing much will happen this week, probably. This can feel like such sweet relief. It can feel like heaven; it can feel like magic. It won’t be a week for surprises, but a week for small movements and quiet repetitions, each moment building on the last, accumulating, building a life. Try to remember this as you move through your days, all stressed or bored or happy. Try to remember this when nothing much is going on. Try to do what you can with each moment you’re given. Try to be very kind.

Pisces: As much as you can and as long as you can, try to move slowly this week. Try to move with care. Don’t hurry your thoughts, don’t hurry your speech, don’t hurry your feet. Give yourself space to grow slowly. Give yourself time to put down roots that are deep. The things you need most won’t happen fast but they will happen, and they will be good, and they will be right. This week, just focus on giving yourself what you need. Focus on getting enough water, enough sunlight, enough gentleness, enough sleep.
