Dawson’s Divinations

Hello my loves, how are you? I am excited to share with you some knowledge from the stars. We have an amazingly tranquil week with no planets in retrograde. You may already have felt a calm setting in, but be ready for those feelings to be intensified with opportunity and possibility. Get excited—but stay cautious. The lack of action this week may make most signs feel like they are waiting for something. 

Amicable Aries, the skies may feel a little boring this week. The harmonious Venus is constructing the heavens to be fluid, spiritual and deep for you. Uranus transits across your “friendly sextile,” meaning that this week you will be asked to be practical, level-headed, and — perhaps for such a strong sign — a little bit meek. Bring yourself home to where you belong. The complexity that confronts you is a mirage. See through that and you’ll be on your way.

Taurus, the stillness of the sky this week is a great comfort for you. As an earth sign, your solid and firm demeanor helps you maintain balance when other signs waver. This week you will be able to profit from smooth seas and navigate a course that may seem contrary to your own nature. Don’t dig your heels in. Go with the flow, so to speak. Lose that argument: it wasn’t worth pursuing in the first place. Don’t let anything invade your peace.

Gemini, it’s time to shoot your shot. I don’t have much to say. There’s something you want out there. Go get it. Rejection is just a fool’s excuse. 

My beloved Cancer, your heart is so beautiful and mild, but I know it can often seem like a burden. Do not interpret your fragility as weakness. Rather,  see it as a new form of strength. Your Venus in Pisces is imbuing you with an optimism that can be scary. Are you looking to ask out a crush? Yearning for someone to stop by and speak to you in the Libe? Trying to make eye contact with your gym crush? This yearning can be scary — painful even — but remember that this openness to the world is what makes you uniquely beautiful. I know you are waiting for something and the stars do too. Learn to love yearning this week, my sweet little crab. You were made to be loved. 

Leos will be a little buzzed this week! Mercury’s long journey through Capricorn has been disorganizing your sixth house of health. This house also corresponds with Virgo, so be sure to look out for the Virgos in your life. You are an industrious individual, but industry does not equal success. Last week you may have been spinning your wheels, but this week may give you new traction. Find a soulmate in your work. Fall in love with a philosophy. 

Virgos are probably hoping I will say something about love this week. I won’t. Focus on how your courage and erotic appeal can nourish yourself, not others. You limit yourself with your tendency to obsess over others, oftentimes those who are out of reach. Take yourself on a date. Learn that romance can be an affair of the soul. Avoid sticky situations.

Luminous Libra, don’t get lost in the details. With zero planets in retrograde, it is time to focus on the big picture. Your house is in order for the time being, so it is time to begin reforms. Trust your gut this week. Focus on getting your probiotics and begin a new project.

Where Cancers and Virgos are longing this week, Scorpios are becoming romantic renegades. Maximize your socialization and get out there. Count your drinks and your wins. You are in for a very, very busy week in your romantic sphere. Make some good trouble, but don’t break any hearts. If you do, don’t blame this column.

Sagittarius, it’s time to make some money! Where other signs are focused on romance this week, your Mercury in Capricorn spells financial success for you. Pluto indicates that this wealth is hidden, and it is up to your intellect to solidify your gains. Pay attention to your choices, they will come back to you in the future. Find a penny on the ground and give it a flip. You’ll know whether you want heads or tails, but what decision are you asking for help with?

Curious Capricorn, you’ve been seeking pleasure where you probably shouldn’t (leave that hot prof alone!). This week will be a week of experiments. The week of no retrograde planets enables you to do much more now. Read a new book and find ways to connect it to your current projects. Eye sight, interpretation and discernment are skills you will need. Turn away from indulgence and toward self-actualisation. You know when you have too much of a good thing.

Aquarius, there is a certain sensuality about you this week and a focused attention on the kidneys. Venus and Uranus, leaders of your astral chart, are bumping into each other (not literally, that would be bad) this week. Love and structure snuggle in the skies, watching you as you gain ground in your pursuits. Eat something green and find ways to channel the sensual into the seductive and the seductive into the creative.

Pisces. You may be feeling like there are a lot of questions this week. So I am going to give you just one to focus on: Who are you?

How did I do? As always, feel free to email me at [email protected] with questions, comments and concerns. You are amazing, keep up the good work.
