The Rumblr’s in-house astrologer, Madame Clairevoyant, presents her latest dispatch from the stars:
Aries: This week is going to be about returns, about repetitions, about revisiting places you thought you were done with. This week, each house and each cloud and each tree might seem too familiar. It’s easy to get frustrated by this, but try not to. Some things will keep coming back to you, and that’s okay. Some things last a long time, and that’s okay. Some things are part of you. Some things are becoming part of you. Think of this week as practice. Think about highways and horizons and the stars that can guide you home.
Taurus: When your life starts to feel a little stuffy this week, when it gets hard to breathe, try to get outside your house, try to get outside your own head, try to get outside the loops you’ve been running in. Or, when nothing feels quite comfortable and nothing feels quite right, this week, try opening the windows in your house. Try letting air into your kitchen; try letting light into your thoughts. Try letting yourself move in ways you’ve forgotten, try letting yourself expand into the world. Read books you’ve never heard of.
Gemini: This week the world’s going to move in loops and repetitions. This week, the world’s going to waken memories buried deep inside of you, thoughts that you haven’t seen in a long time. This week is going to be about charting your path, and the orbit you move in, and the bodies that orbit you. This week is for dealing with the patterns and the recurring dreams and the ideas that just won’t leave you alone. Be as brave as you can. Plant flowers that will come back, year after year.
Cancer: This week is going to be good to you, it’s going to be full of light, it’s going to leave you feeling warm and safe and free. Try to send some of this kindness back into the world. Try to light up the spaces you move through. Try to care for your friends as much as you can. This week you can catch the light, you can glow, you can shine like gold. Listen to songs that light your heart on fire; listen to songs that make your heart fly above the clouds.
Leo: This week, wild feelings are going to rule you, they’re going to fill up your sky, they’re going to take you on a ride, probably. They might not be true and they might not last, but for now, they can sustain you. This week, trust the things you’re sure about, and trust your doubts, and trust your anger and trust your joy. Trust the feelings that tug at your heart and trust the feelings that live quietly at the back of your head. They’ll carry you to where you need to be. They’ll lead you home.
Virgo: This week, your days are going to fill with color, they’re going to fill with warmth and brightness. It’s going to be easy to be dazzled, it’s going to be easy to get lost in all the colors, in all this wild joyful mess. This week you can get lost this week looking for structure, looking for order, looking for sense. Trust your gut and you can feel your way through. Just try to focus on colors, try focus on feelings, try to focus on the ways the sunlight fills up your room.
Libra: This week, you’ll find yourself digging for answers, you’ll find yourself looking for clues, you’ll find yourself seeking weird bendy truths that you can’t even name. You can find what you need this week; the answers are waiting for you, there are treasures waiting to be found. Just try to stay patient. Try to remember that the life is complicated. Try to remember to eat. Try to keep your eyes open, try to keep your ears to the ground, try to ask the questions that are so big they give you chills.
Scorpio: This week will be full of good luck, full of sweet and strange coincidences, full of joy falling right into your lap, like it was written in the stars, like it was meant to be. Try to trust this funny luck; try to live inside of it and believe in the goodness it can bring to you. Sleep with good luck under your pillow; wake with good luck on your mind. Trust your brightest days, and don’t stop working to earn this abundance. Don’t stop working to earn this generosity. Dream about flying; dream about the sky.
Sagittarius: This week, it might feel like you’ve got a stone in your shoe, maybe, or like your clothes don’t fit quite right, or like the furniture in your house isn’t quite where it should be. Pay attention to this. This week is for making things fit; it’s for making things right. Buy new shoes, if you have to. Move your kitchen table, if you have to. Spend your days the way you want. Spend your love the way you want. Let yourself be cared for in ways that fit right; let yourself be loved in ways that are true.
Capricorn: Even when you feel soft this week, even when you feel hazy, even when all you want is to live inside your head, inside some dreamy imaginary future, it’s going to be important to keep living, important to keep moving in the physical world. This week is for stretching your muscles, for remembering all the different things your body can do, for remembering how solid your dreams can get when you try. This is a week for doing things that will make you stronger. Listen to pop punk; listen to the songs that make you feel unbreakable.
Aquarius: This week might feel frustrating at first, it might feel weird. It might feel like you can’t quite catch your balance, like nothing’s going quite the way you planned it. The world’s going to remind you, this week, that it can still amaze you. It’s going to remind you of how big it is. It’s going to remind of what a sweet strange thing it is to be alive. Try to be open to surprises, this week. Try to wake up early and watch, every day, as your world comes to life.
Pisces: This week, you’re going to feel seized by some wild impulsive generosity, to share every single thing you have and every piece of your heart. This is good and it’s brave and it can leave you cold and gasping for air, if you don’t hold onto your own core, if you don’t hold onto your roots. Hold on to what you need to survive. Keep these things with you, keep them safe. Look at your face in the mirror and look at your feet on the ground and feel yourself in your own body, solid and true and real.

“They were all in their early thirties. An age at which it is sometimes hard to admit that what you are living is your life.”
― Alice Munro, The Moons of Jupiter
[Beneath her body are the cool stone and the whole mountain, enormous and solid and infinite.] She thinks: How thin is the crust of Earth.

"THERE ARE CHILDREN ON THIS TRAIN"
We are not isolated individuals but part of the family of all living beings. Everything we own, everything we enjoy, all our opportunities for spiritual development, and even our very body come from the kindness of others.
