The Rumblr’s in-house astrologer, Madame Clairevoyant, presents her latest dispatch from the stars:
Aries: This week, when the stars are out, when the nights get quiet, keep your eyes open and keep your heart open and let the weird magic of fall take hold of you. Let these days thrill you, let cold night winds knock loose some of the sadness in your head. Let them make you believe in magic or love or a world where nothing is dull, where everything is bright and weird and full of surprises. Indulge your imagination this week, indulge your dreams, let your thoughts go bendy and wild. Listen to Stevie Nicks.
Taurus: This week, the world you move through is going to feel bright and cool and gentle, like it’s welcoming you home, like it’s somewhere you could feel okay staying for a while, like everything’s going to treat you right, right now. Watch the generosity of the trees and the sky this week, look at their colors and their quiet motion and their warmth. Let your own energy move outward, let it warm rooms and brighten streets, let your best good thoughts out to move, to breathe. Watch Moonstruck. Watch movies about funny love.
Gemini: This week, when your days get slow and strange, when dreams show you different shapes of sadness, your words are going to be such a comfort, your words and stories and jokes and gossip, your wild and quiet laughter. When things are not right this week, trust in all the different ways that your words can build a whole world that will keep you safe, trust that your stories can build a place where you can live. Trust yourself to tell stories that could shake the earth, that could build a home out of nothing, if you had to. Listen to Joanna Newsom.
Cancer: This week, the world around you is going change and brighten and shift. It’s going to melt and explode into colors brighter than anything you’ve ever seen, it’s going to shimmer, it’s going to glow. This week’s going to be about wild green questions; it’s going to be about mysteries that open out onto mysteries that are brighter and deeper; it’s going to be about mysteries that open out onto sweet sunny afternoons where everything makes sense, where your own story can become clear, where all you need to do is sit outside and feel the sun on your face.
Leo: This week is going to be about warmth on cold days, it’s going to be about gentleness on rough days, it’s going to be about good food and good dreams on days that make you tired. This week is for loving other people the way you want to be loved, for loving people as openly and as much as you can, for loving other people as if that love has the power to heal every wound in the world. Even if it’s not enough, even if it’s not the only thing, this can make your days bearable, it can make your house warm, it can make your eyes bright.
Virgo: This week, even when the winds blow, even when it gets dark early, luck is going to be on your side. This week, you’re going to be clever and sharp. You’re going to be so light on your feet that you can escape anything bad that comes near you, anything bad that says your name. This week, you’re going to trick your anxieties and your fears into looking the other way, to talk your demons into leaving you in peace. You are magic. You are a hero. Listen to songs that make you dance.
Libra: This week, the stars and the wind and the roads and the songs on the radio are all going to be aligned, they’re all going to be just right, they’re all going to call out to you to wander, to set off on voyages, to travel to weird faraway spaces in search of the things you need, in search of the things you’re made of, in search of the things that can save you. It’s a week for wandering on strange streets, it’s a week for riding buses, it’s a week for for seeking and finding all the different kinds of love and treasure that you’re looking for.
Scorpio: This week, your life and your head and your guts are going to be full of conflict, full of storms, full of clouds, full of a bright electric power that flows through you, that can make you strong, that can make you free. This energy is a kind of magic, it’s a rare gift, it will let you do anything you can imagine, anything you want. Be careful and be kind—this is the kind of power that can crack worlds wide open—but don’t be afraid to use every bit of it, to tear through your world, to leave the air clear and sweet and bright when it’s over.
Sagittarius: This week, when your days feel boring, when your nights feel slow, when the air in your house feels heavy on your skin, try not to panic, try not to let it get you down. This week, more than ever, magic can happen; this week, nothing is too much to hope for and nothing is too late. Let this knowledge sound in your head like a song, let it beat in your heart, let it guide your feet like a beacon. Let it make you brave enough to ask for everything you’ve ever needed, let it make you brave enough to ask for the whole world.
Capricorn: This week, a magic energy is going to grab you, it’s going to make you wild, it’s going to make you see possibilities and doorways everywhere you look, everywhere you turn. This week is a week for trusting the weird song in your heart, it’s for trusting the bright fire in your dreams, it’s for watching love come to you from the weirdest places and for letting it carry you. It’s a week for letting your feet carry you out past the farthest place you can think of, for running until you feel like stopping, for going on until the sun rises over the trees.
Aquarius: This week is for letting out whatever badness has been making a home in your body, all the exhaustion, all the weird angry sorrows. This week is for taking the time you need, for taking baths and drinking tea and sitting with it all, for deciding what you need to keep, then breathing and sweating and screaming the rest right out of your body. This week is for the kind of forgiveness that can tear through you, and it’s for the kind of forgiveness that lets you start to breathe again. Listen to loud songs then listen to Karen Dalton.
Pisces: This week, try to get out of your house, try to look at the sky, try to feel the earth moving underneath you, try to feel how alive it is. This week is about mountains, about oceans, about the vast forces that made you, the things that live in you, the things that are reflected in your eyes. This week, try to remember the ways you’re connected to the land you live on, try to remember the ways it feeds you, try to let it make you solid, try to let it help you listen.
