This Pisces season, remember to be grateful for the little things. Now is the time for sentimentality and dreamlike reality. Try not to feel victimized by life; instead, put on a brave face and confront your problems. It may not be available to you to fight for yourself, but you can always benefit from at least making your voice heard.

Aries (March 21 to April 19)

Don’t rely on your vices. Granted, sometimes coping mechanisms are necessary, but it can become exhausting or even dangerous after a while. You know better than to get carried away, so this is simply a reminder to take care of yourself in healthy ways as much as possible; your mental health will thank you.

Taurus (April 20 to May 20)

Dig deep. You’re already a thoughtful and caring individual, and you do what you can to show your loved ones kindness and support. Perhaps, though, there’s something you could be doing more often for your loved ones to solidify that support. Be unwavering in your love and encourage thought-provoking self-discovery.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20)

Here’s a challenge: Don’t close yourself off from others. Sometimes people deserve second chances, even if you think they don’t deserve one. Be slower to judgment; extend your empathy to those not usually in your social circle. The world doesn’t revolve around you, so don’t treat others as if it does.

Cancer (June 21 to July 22)

Speak your mind. You likely bottle up your emotions in order to look strong for others, but this simply won’t do you any good. Utilize healthy emotional outlets. It’s not embarrassing to ask for help unless you make it embarrassing. If therapy is accessible to you and you’ve never tried it before, this may be another helpful tool to consider.

Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)

You’re a survivor. Keep pushing! Life may look incredibly grim right now, and you might not have faith that things will look up for a long while. Maybe they won’t, but eventually, you will be OK. Your struggles are valid, and you have many supporters cheering you on. If you don’t see any supporters around you, look within.

Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)

Inspect situations closely. You have a great talent for observation. If you’re the silent type of Virgo, there’s an almost deadly presence to you when people know that you see all. Try not to be threatening, but take advantage of your abilities. You may not always know what’s going on, but your intuition is strong and should be followed.

Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)

Your hard work is paying off. This week may be more chaotic than you bargained for, but don’t let the chaos deter you from your work. You have a job to do, and you are going to do it well, as long as you have faith in yourself and the process. Don’t stop now! Remember to breathe in between bites (literally and metaphorically).

Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)

Don’t take yourself so seriously. When everything you do is seemingly for the good of your work, projects, education or self-improvement, one may get the impression that you’re purposefully being rude or standoffish. It may even be that you are — it may even be that it’s to avoid how you’re truly feeling.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)

Responsibility sucks sometimes! It’s a skill you’re learning how to better hone with each passing day. If last week was any indication, you may need to rest more than you think you do. Don’t push yourself into the land of burnout if you can avoid it. If you’re already there, know that it is possible to move out once you perform some self-care.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)

Be gentle with yourself. Any progress is progress, and if you think you’re failing because something isn’t going how you planned, do your best to roll with it. You may enjoy exploring the wilderness of life without plans; you may also crash and burn, lost in the treacherous unknown. That’s for you to discover and survive through.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)

Rediscover the little magics of life. All your excitement is either pending or has already passed you by for the foreseeable future. Because of this, it may be wise to take time to enjoy simple pleasures, finding comfort where you can until the next wave of joy washes over you. Not all hope is lost — just keep your head up.

Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)

Happy birth season! Go with the flow this week, even if it leads to you being elusive with others. If you become distracted by something, follow that impulse and go see what that new thing is about. There’s a childlike innocence in wonderment and discovery, and your inner child wants to come out and play.
