Aries

The Astrologer Says:

Your mind may be fixated on how you can feel more free and in control of your life this week, Aries. Consider what personal values and social contacts you’ve maintained over the years are leaving you feeling uninspired and constrained. Is this the mindset or the community that’s going to have your back when you’re out being a revolutionary? Take decisive action when cutting away outdated the ties you have, but also look out for the people and ideas who light up your heart with fireworks.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

Last week was wild, so this week you’re trying to take control of everything that was previously spiraling out. But are your friends going to be in your corner, ready to support you? Think about that before you consider picking up the next round of beers (or stupidly agree to be the designated driver).

Leo

The Astrologer Says:

You already know that you’re a natural leader, Leo, so try to keep that in mind during your work this week. It’s great to be brimming with brilliant ideas that could shake up the status quo, but remember that even leaders need companions and collaborators to make greatness happen. Remember that you win more friends with honey than vinegar. Work your charm in such a way that it makes potential business partners and lovers feel that supporting you is the best idea since sliced bread and that doing so was their idea all along.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

You’re a leader, right? So do the damn thing. And remember, it’s not really considered leading if you don’t have any followers who believe in your ideas. You wouldn’t wanna approach a woman while her friends are around with your friends joining you to take the heat off yourself, right? Exactly.

Sagittarius

The Astrologer Says:

You’re not as helpless as you think you are, Centaur. Part of your trouble is negative thinking and fixating on things beyond your immediate control. Knock it off. Your mind is a powerful tool when you give it the room to think outside the box. You know that just because something hasn’t been done before doesn’t mean that it cannot happen in the future. Focus on how you want to change up your day-to-day experience. Once you’re clear on the “what,” the “how” will start to reveal itself to you. Thoughts become things, Sadge, so think decisively.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

You can barely keep your head above water, and we all know you can swim with the best of them. Stop doubting yourself. Go get that weekly haircut and get in your bag, Sag.

Taurus

The Astrologer Says:

You’ve entered a phase where no matter what you do, you stand out in a crowd, Taurus. Don’t shy away from the traits that set you apart from the rest. Instead, figure out ways to use your uniqueness in ways that help you attain your worldly ambitions. You’re filled with the energy to get things done; just be mindful about running roughshod over people and creating enemies instead of allies as you position yourself to succeed. Stay true to your ethics so that no one calls you a tyrant later on.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

Bro, you’re weird and it’s okay. Being weird is cool and sets you apart from everyone else. Who doesn’t wanna be different? As Kid Cudi once said, “I’m what you made God, f*ck yes I’m so odd.” Embrace that sh*t.

Virgo

The Astrologer Says:

Don’t become so self-assured that you never push yourself to examine your philosophies and beliefs, Virgo. Routine can be the killer of innovation if you’re not careful, so make an effort to examine where you may have fallen into a rut and need a new point of view to get your energy going again. Remember that there are many ways of seeing the world and just as many paths to truth. You’re under no obligation to accept anything that doesn’t ring true to you, but try to keep an open mind so that you recognize your personal path when you see it.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

You’re stuck in your ways and it’s preventing you from growing as a person. There’s nothing wrong with evolving into a better version of yourself. If you’re not rocking the same hairstyle you were five years ago, why would you think the same? I mean, that is unless your name is Pusha T.

Capricorn

The Astrologer Says:

You’re discovering that one of the most important lessons in life is not just mastering the material world around you, but learning to master the self. Accept the fact that no one but you can dictate how you express yourself in the world, and standing up for the right to be exactly who you are isn’t a one-off type situation—it’s a long term arrangement. Keep in mind that when you allow yourself to shine, you’re also pulling people into your orbit who want to shine with and support you along the way. It’s a win-win, Capricorn, so get out there and show yourself off.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

Being cool and successful at work is fun and all, but what about you as a person? Who are you? You’re more than your 9-5, and while it might be scary AF that you don’t have an answer to this right now, you’ve got a lifetime to figure it out, King.

Gemini

The Astrologer Says:

Your endless curiosity has led you to discover that the world can be a beautiful and brutal place, Gemini. And although you may have optimistic and idealistic plans for the future, it’s important to realize that you’re a part of the tangled web of humanity, not separate from it. You, too, are influenced by the joys and the sorrows you see. Honor that duality instead of denying it. When you feel overwhelmed by the world at large, know that it’s best to take a step back. Even a people person like you needs breaks from humanity.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

There’s good and bad in the world, but the darkness always turns to light so you’ll be alright. Did your barber f*ck up your hairline? It’ll grow back. Hungover? Drink water and sleep it off. Oh, and stop drinking dark liquor straight.

Libra

The Astrologer Says:

You’re all about bringing harmony and balance to your environment, Libra. Think about your creative talents and projects and how you can use them to help breakdown taboos and barriers that exist between people, but be careful dismissing the concerns of others as unimportant or that their right to privacy is irrelevant. You can figure out a way to get the best out people without being overbearing or straight-up crazy.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

You always spread good energy with people you know vibrate on the same wavelength as you. So why not try to bring that same harmony to someone who’s not like you? Get to it. But please leave people who wear MAGA hats alone, though.

Aquarius

The Astrologer Says:

You’re realizing that you do have the charisma and courage of a natural born leader and fighter, Water Bearer. The question is who and what are you willing to fight for, and who is going to have your back when you go up to bat for your ideals. You’re hitting a point where you’re questioning the obligations, traditions and allegiances that you’ve held onto and whether or not they match up to who you are as a fighter. Don’t be afraid to step into new traditions that support your inner fire. You’ll need them when you lead others in battle.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

There’s nothing wrong with what you’re feeling right now, because what you’re feeling is growing pains. Look at you finally realizing how much of a leader and fighter you are.

Cancer

The Astrologer Says:

You have a talent for making others feel welcomed and at home in your company, Cancer. This week, focus on how you can bring like-minded people together to get something important done. Trust that you have ways of persuading people to get involved in any cause, but try to keep a handle on any emotionally manipulative techniques or getting cold feet as soon as opposing views come up. Collaborative efforts aren’t always smooth sailing, but if you’re brave enough to stay the course, you and your people could wind up creating something magical.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

People love to be around you, and you’re really good at getting them to do what’s right. Why not get everyone hyped up on midterm elections and make them realize how essential they are? You know, just a thought…

Scorpio

The Astrologer Says:

This isn’t the time to be afraid of your changing relationships, Scorpio. Yes, we know that you can be rather protective and/or possessive about the people you care for, but things change and you have to lighten up a bit. Give yourself and others the space and freedom to figure out what new arrangements can be struck that feels closely intimate without being smothering or controlling. You get to decide what commitment and security looks like for you and yours even if it looks unconventional to others. Strange love is still love at the end of the day.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

Changing relationships? The weather is this nice, and you have the nerve to have a relationship? Anywho, get that in order this week so you don’t have to explain to anyone why you’re texting someone named “Pizza Spot” at 2 a.m. asking if they’re up.

Pisces

The Astrologer Says:

Sometimes the way to get things done isn’t with a hammer, but with gentle coaxing instead, Pisces. Your mind is filled with new and brilliant ideas about how to educate and communicate powerfully, but people might be a little slow with the uptake at the moment. While you could go full-scale radical to get them on board, that may not be the best plan of attack. Work your gentle Piscean magic to your benefit by showing flexibility and imagination when working to change people’s minds… just don’t take advantage of people’s vulnerabilities when you do, and it’ll all go swimmingly.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

Sometimes you have to be the first person to do things in order to get everyone to hop on the wave instead of yelling at them that you’re always right. Start the trend you’ve been thinking about and it’ll catch on. Yes, people might make fun of a man for wearing an anklet, but do it.
