Insecurities will surface with this weekly horoscope, pushing us to act out in relationships and friendships. Instead of acting aggressive toward others, try to use the energy to change your feelings and vibe. By practicing positive daily affirmations, you’ll be able to bounce back out of your insecurities and into a pool of heightened confidence.
June 21 – July 22
While the difficulties your squad is facing may not have anything to do with you personally, it’ll feel like it. Rather than handle their troubles maturely and wisely, they’ll take it out on you. By projecting their problems, they’re hurting you. Their coping mechanisms will create a lot of tension to rise within your friendships. It’s not your fault — people hurt the ones they love most when they’re in pain. You don’t have to take the emotional abuse. Don’t engage. Take a step back from the friendship to deal with this situation.
July 23 – August 22
There has been a lot of drama brewing in your personal relationships. This week, things aren’t that much easier when it comes to love. The reason is because you want to control your crush or S.O. But you’ll quickly find out that you cannot be the boss when it comes to a partnership — no one can. In order to have a healthy relationship, it’s important that you both see each other as equals. That simply cannot happen if you’re the one calling all the shots. Be confident of your boo’s feels to create a balanced relationship.
August 23 – September 22
You’re never one to flake on plans that have been made with your crew, but this week you are longing for freedom. This may show up as you deciding to do your own thing or spend time chilling at the beach solo with a book instead of meeting up for a cup of coffee. You don’t have to be joined at the hip with your besties 24/7. However, you shouldn’t space out on plans that have already been made. Send a text (even if it’s last minute) to cancel them instead of being a no show because that’s not cool.
September 23 – October 22
Yes, you are a very good friend. However, that doesn’t mean you aren’t allowed to receive the same amount of TLC you give to others. This week you may require a few pep talks from your besties. The caveat is that they may not have time or want to give you one — which isn’t really fair. If that is the case then it’s essential for you to take a step back from friendships and focus on healing yourself. You can reassess your friendships down the road and in time. But, focus on giving yourself love because you’ll need it.
October 23 – November 21
Summer vacation has just begun and you’re bored already. We get it! You are totally thirsting for adventure and fun. Unfortunately, there aren’t many ways for you to experience thrilling activities in your local town, as you are seeking newness and freshness in your life. Take a road trip or head to the next town over with your pals and check out their scene. It will feel great to get out of your zone and experience something new — even if you are driving 15 minutes out of town. Your seasonal adventurous vibes will appreciate the change of scenery.
November 22 – December 21
The past few weeks have been spent canoodling and connecting with your ex. Now, the flame that was reignited is extinguishing itself and its extremely confusing to you. The truth of the matter is that this was a fling that wasn’t really supposed to go anywhere. Old feelings have come to the surface, which are triggering former insecurities. You may choose to keep the situationship going for a few more weeks, but it’ll only hold you back from experiencing new feelings with someone new who has long term potential.
December 22 – January 19
Oftentimes, boundaries are hard for people to understand and respect. Mostly because they are afraid of the unknown. You have to reteach others how to respect your limits, which will serve to the advantage of both of you as they’ll learn how to treat you and themselves. By communicating your requirements, you’ll help the friendship to thrive. Remember, when you create boundaries and stick to them you are helping others to grow outside their comfort zone — as well as yourself. But, you gotta speak up and let them be known.
January 20 – February 18
Change is a wonderful thing — if you’re ready for it. The issue is that you’re wanting to evolve, but your crew is not. They won’t understand your need to transform, as it will make them feel as though they have to make changes too. Also, they may be scared that you will move beyond the friendships. Real pals encourage their BFFs to level up and they are people that you can grow with. Don’t let your friends hold you back from becoming the best version of yourself. They should support you, not hold you back.
February 19 – March 20
Although you are popular and fabulous, you aren’t the Queen Bee. That is all about to change. It’s your time to step into the spotlight, Pisces. While you normally roll your eyes at the political hierarchy at school and in your peer group, you’re finding that it is lovely to have the attention and affection of others. Don’t feel bad for liking the TLC of your BFFs. Lap it up! Embrace it! Let this be your time to shine brightly in the summer sun. ‘Tis your season. Relish in the fame and acclaim that is coming your way this week.
March 21 – April 19

It’s not fair, and you don’t deserve to have people spreading gossip about you. The lesson here is to not overshare with people and to not impulsively express all your drama.
April 20 – May 20

Even though the weather is nice outside, you can veg out with your Kindle, iPad, or computer in the park and beach.

May 21 – June 20
