It’s the last week of Mercury’s current retrograde cycle, and Sandy Sitron has a new astro symbol for your sign in her Numinous weekly horoscopes …
Aries or Aries Rising
You may feel like this is the time to power forward and take action. But your energy is better spent going with the flow. Discover if it’s possible to coast like a leaf on the wind or a twig in a river. Connect with the elements that surround you. Notice where you are supported. You can get a lot done alone, but you don’t need to.
Taurus or Taurus Rising
Continue to go about your daily life. But notice that every situation, relationship and emotion is a teacher. What might normally irritate you becomes meaningful when you reframe events and interactions as moments of learning. Interrupt your normal mental chatter and ask yourself what you need to learn. This is moment in which you can gain spiritual perspective.
Gemini or Gemini Rising
A piece of a cloud.
Eat clouds for breakfast. Fill yourself up with air and water — aka ideas and feelings. The fear might be that you drift away. But you will always come back down to earth like rain. You don’t have to worry. Your desire to share and teach will be supported. Disrupt your earthly security fears and just stay inspired by the knowledge and wisdom that you’re taking in.
Cancer or Cancer Rising
Hands and heart.
You are under pressure and it’s coming from all directions. But your emotional intelligence is growing. Tend to yourself as carefully as you would tend to a newborn. If you feel safe and emotionally secure in your cozy nest of self-care, you’ll find that you can easily reach out your hands to share your heart with the world.
Leo or Leo Rising
Ray of light.
You’re getting a direct transmission. It’s coming at you like a ray of brilliant inspiration. If you become cloudy (and we all get cloudy sometimes) you’ll ignore the sparks. Stay awake by confronting your underlying subconscious fears and stripping them of their power. Then you’ll notice things that will inspire you for a very long time.
Virgo or Virgo Rising
Spices and herbs.
Reinvigorate yourself with vitalizing smells. You need a restart. You need to learn to let go and begin again. A transformation process becomes bleak if you feel disconnected from nature and your body. Let aroma bring you home to yourself. You are changing on deep levels and you need physical support in this process. Keep it simple.
Libra or Libra Rising
This ship can explore great depths, but it must stay self-contained. The internal pressure must be regulated. The control panels must be monitored. The technicians must work together. Get all of the parts of yourself working together. Monitor your own internal pressure. Then you can bring your ship into relationship, exploring and connecting with others in a healthy way.
Scorpio or Scorpio Rising
Cow eats grass.
Honor your digestive process. How many stomachs do you need to digest everything that’s been coming your way? You can’t just keep taking it all on without a symbolic cleanse. Draw a diagram of what your metaphorical digestive process should be right now. What will help you process, cleanse, and release? This will make you much more creative.
Sagittarius or Sagittarius Rising
You are creating a maze, when the path is actually a straight line. Get out of your own way. This can be much more simple than it is. Rearrange the shrubbery of your mind. When you begin your trip again with fun, playfulness and sharing as your driving values, you’ll find that the path is much easier to navigate.
Capricorn or Capricorn Rising
There is a strange role reversal happening. You have loads of life experience. You know how to take charge. But for a moment you are like an adult trapped in a baby body. You have to let go of control and let yourself be coddled. This will bring you more perspective. Don’t fight the process, just let go and receive. You’ll go back to making boss moves soon enough.
Aquarius or Aquarius Rising
Covered in clay.
The current energy might make you feel like you’re floating away. Getting very grounded will help you feel brilliant and aligned. If you want a good idea, breathe and center yourself in your body. If you want a new philosophical outlook, go outside. Ground your physical container and you’ll find that your creative ideas and social connections flourish.
Pisces or Pisces Rising
There’s a focal point to aim for. But you need to practice. The best way to waste time is to flail around trying to do something you’re not prepared for. Go step by step. Follow your routine and build up your skills. Focus on strength and you’ll find that everything becomes exponentially easier. Learning and practicing can feel very productive.
