Aries

The Astrologer Says:

Don’t throw in the towel just yet, Aries. Although the Eclipses have left you feeling unsure of where you fit in and how to use your gifts, know that the only way forward is patience. Reignite your passion for the things you believe in. Make a serious commitment to seeing your goals and ambitions come to life by making a plan and taking one step toward it every day. This is a marathon, not a race. Practice discipline and control and watch yourself flourish.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

Patience is key. Remember last year when you wanted to grow out your hair so you could  braid it and then fade the sides into your beard so you look like an R&B singer? It took time, right? Remember that all good things take time before you try to rush greatness.

Leo

The Astrologer Says:

Don’t take your talents for granted, Leo. It’s one thing to be gifted, but it’s another to be able to use those gifts to support yourself financially and/or emotionally. Instead of crossing your fingers and hoping for the best, try planning out how you’re going to make the best of your interests. Put the same time, love and money into your creative and romantic pursuits and see what happens. Remember that rocks are hard and water is wet, so what you give is what you get.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

There was always that one kid in high school who was smart AF but didn’t apply themselves. And if you didn’t know a kid like that… it might have been you. Anyway, use your gift and plan things out as you shoot for the stars. Kobe Bryant was always super talented, but that didn’t stop him from being the first person in the gym and the last person out.

Sagittarius

The Astrologer Says:

Venus is shining on you and your ambitions, Sagittarius, but you may not feel up for the task of making power moves yet with so much fading away from your life thanks to the Eclipses. Take some time to get reacquainted with your desires and values. Remind yourself that you’re good at adulting even when it looks like everything is falling apart (and know that this funky period will pass, too). Practice discipline with your career this week, as time and love poured into what you do will have you reaping benefits before long.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

Look at you soaking up that beautiful-ass sun, Sag. You’re struggling between living your best life and being an adult, and we know how slippery that slope is. But you know what? So is every other so-called adult in the world.

Taurus

The Astrologer Says:

Enjoy yourself, Taurus. With Venus in your House of Creativity and Pleasure, you’re being encouraged to enjoy the good life. It doesn’t have to be flashy or expensive to be good; so long as it fills you with joy, then you’re on the right path. Live out loud and wear your happiness on your sleeve. The more you enjoy yourself, the more permission you give to others to do the same. We could all use a little more joy in these streets, so don’t be stingy with the good vibes—spread it around.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

Just because you’re living the good life doesn’t mean you should feel guilty. You don’t question waking up without a hangover after drinking way too much the night before, right? And when you’re happy, spread that shit around. Let the new guy at work in on the water cooler talk so he feels like he belongs.

Virgo

The Astrologer Says:

It’s a good time to be feeling yourself, Virgo. With Venus in your sign adding some flair to your look, it would be a shame to let all this beautiful energy go to waste. Use this time to shine and get some work done on your creative project, but also let people show you love and affection, Virgo. The more you love up on yourself and allow yourself to enjoy the good things life has to offer, the easier it is to find creative release and expression with others. As the Jacksons used to sing, you gotta enjoy yourself.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

Self-care is important, king. Go to Lush and buy yourself a bath bomb because you deserve it. But once the bath bomb leaves a ring around your tub its time to get to work and be creative. In order for you to get better at your creative outlet, you’ve gotta start expressing it.

Capricorn

The Astrologer Says:

You don’t have all the answers, Capricorn, and guess what? That’s totally alright. Use this week to get out of your comfort zone and into spaces with people who can teach you something new. The point is to not get stuck mental in a rut, believing that the heavens are whispering all the answers into your ears. They’re not, because the only way to wisdom and clarity about your beliefs is to experience them yourself. Crack open a book, engage in conversation, fall in love with broadening your horizons, and watch how it influences your view of the world.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

Like Sway, you don’t have the answers and that’s cool. That’s why its time for you to surround yourself with people who are smarter than you and will offer you all the keys to success that you need. But there’s also another way: pick up a damn book or Google it.

Gemini

The Astrologer Says:

You know there’s nothing wrong with hanging out around the house, Gemini. This week you’ll be feeling the need to keep a low profile as Venus urges you to love your home and also organize the mess you may have lying about collecting dust. Think of it this way: the more cleaning up you do both physically and mentally, the easier it will be to discover long-hidden gems that can be repurposed and used to your benefit. If you’re having trouble letting go of old things and ways of thinking, consider unloading your burden with a trusted friend or confidant. You’ll feel better when you do.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

Whether you’re broke until your next paycheck and currently getting by on Arizona teas or have racks in the bank and are just cheap as hell, you’re in luck this week. Keep it lowkey and chill in the crib. You’re already three weeks behind on the latest season of Power and please clean up the crib— including under your very, very disgusting bed.

Libra

The Astrologer Says:

You’re allowed to be sensitive, Libra. With so much activity and weird ugly sh*t happening all around you, its okay to feel a little spooked. You may find that you need to retreat more these days just to recharge your energy and deal with the madness that’s going on, so be sure to do so. When you take good care of yourself, it’s easier to take care of those around you. Practice setting and creating a mood for peace in your world this week. In doing so, you can extend it out to others who are also in need of focus and calm. It’s a win-win that does everyone a bit of good.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

There’s nothing wrong with being in your feelings. There’s nothing wrong with being reactionary if you ain’t too crazy. Keep taking good care of yourself and quit pouring into people who aren’t pouring into you. Who wants an empty cup? (The correct answer is no one.)

Aquarius

The Astrologer Says:

It’s the wild wild west out there, Water Bearer. Although it’s been hard to keep your cool with all the fussing and fighting going on in your life, know that you’re still loved and needed by your people. This week, focus on using your sensitivity and ability to think outside the box to the benefit of others. You can feel the tension in the words left unsaid, so why not use your talents to help people through the worst of their anxiety and suffering? You have the insight and wisdom that’s needed now more than ever. Show us the way forward, Aquarius.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

Yo, it’s been a week. Going to brunches and avoiding ex-flames isn’t the wave, so you’re forced to wear sunglasses to look unrecognizable while downing your umpteenth mimosa. But you’ve been a bit selfish this week, so focus on your people a bit more going forward. If the next person you date has a cute friend, don’t hesitate to put your homie on.

Cancer

The Astrologer Says:

Tell us how you really feel, Cancer. No really, open up. This week, make use of Venus in your House of Communications and flow into conversations with your partners and close friends about whatever’s been on your mind. Unfortunately, most people aren’t as naturally receptive and intuitive as you are, so don’t rely on others to know what you’re thinking and feeling, as that will only lead to more trouble. If the words are too difficult to say out loud, then pen, paper and text work just as well. You never know when you’ll say exactly what’s on everyone’s else’s mind. Speak up so they can hear you in the back.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

Open up to your people and let them know the real you. Deflecting and making jokes about your friend’s sketchy mustache when he asks what’s wrong is only hurting you in the end. Holding sh*t in for too long will start to take a toll on your eventually. And that’s big facts.

Scorpio

The Astrologer Says:

Being among your people is the way to go this week, Scorpio. Whether it’s your crew from around the way or the organization you find yourself volunteering with, make an effort to be around like minded individuals who light up your mind with their insights. For you, this goes beyond just having a good time (even though it is). This is where you’ll find both the inspiration and the validation for your own ideas while you figure out that what you say holds power and influence over others. Stay in community, as that’s where your blessings lies. Fist up.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

This might be a trying week for you, but having your people around you will make things way more bearable. Even if it just means hanging out with your friends at the park, getting winded immediately, and realizing how truly washed you are in basketball. That’ll just make it even more fun as ya’ll watch Summer League and complain about LeBron’s big move.

Pisces

The Astrologer Says:

Pay attention this week, Pisces, as you could be meeting future lovers and collaborators through mutual friends. Venus has you looking attractive to everyone around you, so use that energy to your benefit. Go out, socialize, dance and have a good time, and watch who comes close to get to know you. Just be responsible, Pisces. If they don’t fit into your world because lack of shared vision or common goals, chances are they’re not for you in the long run. No pressure to commit just yet. For now, enjoy the ride.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

You’re poppin’ this week. Make sure that shape-up is as clean as possible, because your love life could be seeing a new jolt sooner than later.
