Don’t take words to heart or face value this week. This month is more about self-assessment, discovery while having a vision in mind. Start writing out your plans for the week, the day, the month, even including your meals for the week. Include a couple of days to center yourself, leaving room for some “me” time while structuring your life. Mercury will be the only planet in retrograde this month to make any revisions, reorganizing or reassessments. It’ll allow insight into what you started since January to receive a go or no-go of your plans in progress. If you lost anything, Mercury retrograde might assist you in finding items that were misplaced. “You can either experience the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The choice is yours.” Unknown

Capricorn: There’s a shift in your energy this week from “busy on the go” doing short errands and then suddenly shifting your life and focus on a committed regimen. It’s a month to acknowledge how valuable and essential it is to take time for self-care. Make a slight change in your appearance by changing your hairstyle, wearing a different color or perfume, in your routine, cleaning your car, rearranging the home, or implementing a routine. Every day, for seven days, look in the mirror, begin a detox, or start journaling to invest in yourself to write out your day. You should notice a difference the following week. Remember, pick one thing to accomplish for seven days to see your results. “Your passion is waiting for your courage to catch up.” Isabelle Lafleche

Aquarius: Lighten up this week as you will feel a slight resistance to get up and accomplish the task ahead to free up some time. Think about it as a way to catch a break or go for a walk. While you’re out and about, something may spark your attention in addition to a particular project or you may come up with a new concept. In the meantime, your neighbors or siblings may ask for your guidance or assistance. Also, you can overindulge in sweets in a bit but keep it in moderation. A smile a day keeps the pain and frowns away. “If we have the attitude it’s going to be a great day, it usually is.” Catherine Pulsifer

Pisces: Keep it simple, short, sweet and to the point. Don’t let sudden and unknown energies throw you off your mission. You have a prior obligation to self; fulfill the month without being distracted by others coming in. Pursue your dreams while your mind is fresh with new ideas, concepts, and ways of doing things to see the results. Do what you feel is the best move for yourself. You’re the boss, so don’t look around and see who’s in authority. Just know when you walk into the room, you’re in charge. You have to talk, walk and take control. “Magic is believing in yourself. If you can make that happen, you can make anything happen.” Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Aries: By now, you’ve probably figured out a plan of keeping your emotions in check, all for the betterment of yourself. If you have to analyze a situation, don’t forget your role. Your mind may want to do one thing, yet your heart may be set on another, making plans somewhat challenging in coming to fruition. Take a moment to meditate, contemplate, add a bit of yoga, sing, use a crystal ball if you have too or listen to music to take the edge off. Position yourself in a way to change your perspective, and you’ll see solutions when you do. “If something is important enough, even if the odds are stacked against you, you should still do it.” Elon Musk

Taurus: Mentally prepare yourself for what lies ahead as you walk into new or unmarked territory. Allow your heart to guide the way without fear, without doubt or hesitation while reviewing the details. Everything isn’t always straight to the point. You may have to experience some limitations or restrictions while waiting to be or feel free for the moment. Have faith and trust in yourself as you are much closer to home now than you know. Remember, home lives inside your heart. “People who wonder if the glass is half empty or full miss the point.The glass is refillable.” Unknown

Gemini: Butter yourself up this week due to the information likely coming fast, similar to a lightning bolt or jumpstarting a dead battery. In establishing a foundation rather than mapping, drawing or writing it out, you are full of enthusiasm while planning out the details. Jump, scream, shout for joy as everything is coming together like a 2,000-piece puzzle. Even with minor setbacks, it’s a guaranteed process for your comeback. Pace yourself, and every little thing will be alright. “Hold the vision, trust the process.” Unknown

Cancer: Physically and mentally, do what’s in your best interest and accomplish what you set out to achieve. No one can give you what you desire, wish or dream of unless you learn to find it within yourself. First, ask yourself, are you ready to receive? Have you cleaned out your closet and suitcases along the way to initiate the process? You are a Cardinal water sign who needs to water your progress like your plants and season your food. This time, season self-first for the new. Feel, taste, touch while opportunities are being baked and ready to eat as a piece of the pie. “It’s Monday…time to motivate and make dreams and goals happen. Let’s go.” Heather Stillufsen

Leo: A woman/man with a plan, similar to yours, is like eating a sweet and delicious slice of watermelon. It gets sweeter and sweeter and juicier with every bite you take, taking your breath away. It will only heighten your taste buds to a higher and satisfying level. Now that you’ve got a taste for more, finalize the next phase of your plan of action. Mercury is in retrograde in your opposite sign of Aquarius, and with the Sun of the zodiac in Aquarius, it’s an indication not to over-do or overload yourself. “No one is to blame for your future situation but yourself. If you want to be successful, then become successful.” Jaymin Shah

Virgo: Doing things differently adds a different flavor. How are you expanding yourself to spread the vital information you possess? You have the tools to guide you on your journey. Now ask yourself what’s your school of thought on the given material to advance you in your journey. A class, a group discussion, meditating, meet-and-greet events, or some other communication plan for this month seems to be moving forward. You can call this month your vitality period in your reputation cycle. In other words, you got this! “Every successful person in the world is a hustler one way or another. We all hustle to get where we need to be. Only a fool would sit around and wait on another man to feed him.” K’wan

Libra: A sense of right and wrong, love and hate, or a unite and divide kind of vibe, are floating through the airwaves from all walks of life expressing their feelings. How are you expressing your emotions and your love for self to those in your immediate environment? What floats your boat or who’s rocking your boat that you can logically converse with for better understanding in a newsworthy way? With so much news being buoyant, a pandemonium just may be brewing up. Control your space and your thoughts as further news flashes crossed your path. “The hard days are what make you stronger.” Aly Raisman

Scorpio: The best thing you can wish for is a plan of action on your next move, whether it’s for a new home or a better health regimen, for instance. Finalize the details of a well thought-out mission or seek a second opinion on a particular situation. The choice is up to you. How long are you willing to wait? You have the vision now, and it’s time to put a move on it. Please give it a go. It’s been inside of you this long. It’s time to unleash the best version of yourself. An oversized load is coming through to start the journey. “If you believe it’ll work out, you’ll see opportunities. If you don’t believe it’ll work out, you’ll see obstacles.” Wayne Dyer

Sagittarius: When it’s said and done, the writings on the wall were there all along, steering you in the right direction. How are you directing your affairs, boss? Are you being thrown a curveball, a longshot to make the grand slam, sending everyone home? Are the gateways of opportunity open to take charge while leading others? In doing so, look out for number one since everyone isn’t going to advance themselves. But as long as you do, carry on. All aboard, let’s make it happen. Apply pressure when and where pressure needs to be applied. “You’ve got to get up every morning with determination if you’re going to go to bed with satisfaction.” George Lorimer
