Aries

The Astrologer Says:

This is the week to pay attention to your dreams and the visions that come your way, Aries. You may realize that there are signs and symbols in the form of music, art, or random people catching your attention who are trying to lead you to where you’d like to be in life. But progress doesn’t come from floating in the misty intangible abyss. Get to work by completing practical tasks that move you closer to your dreams coming true. The only way to become what you wish is to practice every day.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

Recognizing your dreams is cool and sh*t, but unless you’re executing, its not worth much. Break down realizing your dreams into tangible steps, then get to it.

Leo

The Astrologer Says:

It’s important to admit when you’ve gone too far and need to reel it in a bit, Leo. Check in with your self esteem this week. If you’ve been attempting to lose yourself in other people via intense interactions that feel obsessive and all encompassing, know that you’re falling out of whack. Remind yourself that passion and sharing with others requires a healthy respect for yourself first. Mind your boundaries, Leo, and don’t get carried away.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

Your ego has been out of hand this week, bro. You’ve been in your bag, getting ’fits off and women have been all over you. That’s cool, but that’s not who you are. You confused Meghan with Malia and tried to feed salmon to the one who’s allergic to seafood. That’s a clue that you’re doing too much and need to set new boundaries for yourself.

Sagittarius

The Astrologer Says:

Striking a balance between work and family has been trickier than usual for you, Centaur. There’s the energy and the desire to continue climbing your career ladder, but it often comes with the cost of missing out on family gatherings and occasions. Remind yourself to take a break when you need to reconnect with loved ones; it replenishes your strength so you can continue to tackle your ambitions. Keep in mind that you don’t have to plan everything; let others pick up some of the slack so that you can just show up and enjoy their company and not see hanging out as another task on your to-do list.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

The great Aubrey Graham once rapped, “I’mma always take the money over sex.” And honestly that’s cool, but it creates a terrible work-life balance. Learn when work and fun should be split evenly, and when one should get a little more attention than the other.

Taurus

The Astrologer Says:

This week, surround yourself with people who encourage your creative expression, Taurus. Remember that this year has been all about embracing change, so surround yourself with friends and associates who are on the same wavelength and demonstrate how each of us has something to add to the whole. Just keep an eye out for duplicitous friendships. Energy vampires who are constantly in need of help need not apply to your crew, so don’t feel guilty when you tell them to beat it.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

Instead of hanging out with your friends who only wanna talk about all that craziness that happened with Kanan from Power or Issa’s latest relationship issue on Insecure, get with your creative homies. Once y’all get into a vibe and the creative juices start flowing, there’s no telling what greatness will ensue.

Virgo

The Astrologer Says:

As much as it’s in your nature to give of yourself without end, Virgo, this is a good week to learn how to balance how much you give with how much you’re able to receive. It’s great to desire fairness and peace in your partnerships, but there are times that you have to put up healthy boundaries to create it. Remind yourself that you have a lot going for you and there’s no need to hide in your relationships or overextend yourself so that you feel needed. Pour a little lovin’ on yourself first, then the rest will follow.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

Find your balance. This weak is going to be hard AF, but its alright because you’re ready for that sh*t. Your commitment to certain relationships will be tested. Welcome the challenges, as they will show who deserves your attention right now and who doesn’t. Choose wisely.

Capricorn

The Astrologer Says:

You get to trust your own thoughts and ideas this week, Capricorn. Believe it or not, you too can have a way with words that brings healing and support to other people’s lives. Think about how your life experience and adventures have blessed you with hard earned wisdom that deserves to be shared for the benefit of others. Use your imagination and all the ways you can weave tales and inspire others to do the same. Just be mindful of giving unsolicited advice or engaging in deception to sway people to your side. No fake news, please.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

Trusting your own thoughts is scary AF, isn’t it? Too bad. This week you’ll have to become more comfortable with who you are as a person and be more confident in the decisions you make. Just don’t start giving advice about things you don’t knowing anything about; don’t tell your friend the bartender about your new idea for a disgusting drink because no one wants avocado in their beer.

Gemini

The Astrologer Says:

You could set a new tone this week, Gemini. Consider tapping into your philanthropic side and being the kind of person who shows what it means to be compassionate and giving. In today’s world, everyone can use a little more nurturing, so consider how you can lead that charge whether at home with family and friends or in a more public fashion. Don’t stand around waiting for a higher authority to step in when you see someone in need of your assistance. You’re the one we’ve been waiting for, so step up to the plate.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

With all the wild things your Gemini brethren have done as of late *cough* Kanye West *cough*, it’s time to give back. Doing dope sh*t is cool and all, but inspiring others and donating to people who aren’t as fortunate as you is where it’s really at.

Libra

The Astrologer Says:

You’re no use to anyone if you overwork yourself, Libra. As much as you want to be of service to others, be mindful about going above and beyond for those who may not appreciate your efforts. Keep your plans loose rather than overcommitting yourself to people and events that leave you feeling overwhelmed and burned out. Take time out each day to do something small that brings you just a little bit closer to your idealistic vision of reality. If your find yourself unable to act, remind yourself that perfectionism and procrastination go together like peanut butter and jelly. You don’t have to be perfect, just give and receive from the heart and all will be well.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

You’re out here giving to people who aren’t investing in you? Nah, we off that.

Aquarius

The Astrologer Says:

You know exactly what people need in today’s environment, so what can you do to give it to them? Sometimes we need fewer big ideas and theories and more practical displays of support to get us going. The saying “put your money where your mouth is” rings true for you, as you’ll be presented with opportunities to give money and other resources to those who need it most this week. Remember to be pragmatic though, don’t tap out your funds trying to appear generous when giving a little less would be just as appreciated without putting you in the red. People trust you to be real, so be just that.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

You gotta chill on those big a*s ideas, fam. Do something more practical to get the ball rolling. If your dream vacation is to visit Italy and you can’t afford it, opt for making some lasagna. Baby steps, man.

Cancer

The Astrologer Says:

One of the best ways to use the knowledge you’ve gained recently is to share it with others, Cancer. Invite some friends and family over for dinner and regale them with your storytelling while holding space for others to do the same. Just watch out for dogma and closing yourself off to ideas that challenge your worldview. Remember, you don’t have to believe in anything without questioning it nor do you have to convince anyone to see the world through your eyes. The point is to share, listen, and feed your mind something new. Open up to the wider world; great things await you.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

Going out to brunch is fine, but how about sweating over a hot-ass stove for hours and inviting your friends over to your cramped apartment and watching The Bachelorette? That sounds better right? Be real with yourself; no it doesn’t. Just promise to be more social this week and appreciate the homies.

Scorpio

The Astrologer Says:

It’s a good week to practice shining your creative and inspirational light on others, Scorpio. Use your gifts to encourage others to get involved and do the same with their own. When you take charge in this way, you can become the heartbeat that keeps any cause going. Just make sure to set aside time for your own interests, as overcommitting yourself to the larger group can leave you feeling rebellious and unwilling to show up when you’re needed most.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

Helping the people around you is all fun and games until those same people aren’t around to you get through your issues. We imagine this is how sad Drake was when he wrote “Jaded.”

Pisces

The Astrologer Says:

With this week’s energy, its easy to want to go to bat for the people you’re close to, Pisces. Being able to give of yourself and be of service to those in need will always be a part of your DNA, but the tricky part is not getting so caught up in other people’s fights that you lose parts of yourself. Be mindful about blending your energy so well with others that you can’t make out where they end and you begin. Remember that you’re not just standing up for others, but for yourself and your beliefs, too. Make sure that your needs are also being met.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

Like so many of your other astrological brothers and sisters, you gotta learn to live and let go and stop being disappointed about people and things. Well, unless its the new Eminem album. You’re more than welcome to be disappointed by that.
