It’s a battle of wills ahead for you midweek. If you make things too personal in this contest of wills, you may lose. Don’t bring up the past.

Your vision questing is starting to pay off big and midweek, you’re on fire! Take care, though, to communicate gently. Someone or something has really caught your eye. Be careful, though. Embellishment can be misdirection. You may be yearning for a crown of your own. Just be sure to ask yourself if you’re questing after the Crown Jewels or a plastic tiara.

Get spiritual and trans-personal with the eclipse vibes on Friday and Saturday. Ideas discussed then will have power over the next six months. Power color: lavender Affirmation: I totally enjoy the present.
Someone in authority grates at you midweek. Their inflexibility is not helping you grow something that’s really taking off, so you may have to continue to keep your plans hush-hush.

Power color: pink Affirmation: All is right and perfect.
Midweek, ask yourself what your definition of success is. Just because folks around you think it’s one thing, doesn’t mean that it’s your definition of success too. It’s time for to define success for yourself. How many “successful” people do you know that are secretly miserable? Success isn’t always about being on top.

This weekend’s lunar eclipse has you thinking about the future. Stargazing opens up new thoughts. Power color: indigo Affirmation: I give myself the star treatment.
A lack of direction early in the week sets up challenges midweek. In an effort to expand, you’re getting pushed in a direction you’d rather not go.

You feel like you are on the right track on Monday. Don’t rush into new agreements after Wednesday and don’t make your communications all about you.

You always want to move forward and you need to remind yourself that you’re seeing the future before everyone else is and you’re seeing the future more clearly than everyone else. Trust your vision.

If you’re feeling disillusioned with your love life, it’s time to fall in love with you—the real you, not who “you” you were told or commanded you were.

Power color: white Affirmation: The past reverberates into the present unless I change my vibes.
