Can you get lit without eclipsing yourself? We’re in the middle of “eclipse season,” which kicked off January 31 with a Leo full moon eclipse. On February 15, we’ll get a “booster shot” from an Aquarius new moon eclipse. Eclipses are tipping points, with the heavens appearing to push us over the edge in some way. How can each sign mix the right celestial cocktail without drowning our raging inner beast in too much calm, cool, and collectedness? Read on.
Take charge when others won’t decide to act, but then chill when a decision’s set.
Appreciate that you are all that and a bag of chips, but you’re in for a shock if you believe you’re the only dish.
Speak to understand and be understood, not to bedazzle, belittle, or bullshit.
Don’t let fear make you greedy. Trust that the cosmos will give you enough.
Lavish your best on folks who love you, but don’t twist yourself in knots over humble haters.
True humility is when you serve without making too much fuss. Roll up your cuffs and get in there.
Indulge in life’s lusts and pleasures in order to delight yourself, not just others.
Use green-eyed envy to remind you of the desires you’ve denied yourself.
Forgo brutal honesty for being radical with considerate candor.
Go for yours, but leave some for others.
Shine, dammit! Honor your faults, but don’t hide your own greatness behind them.
Do good for yourself or another without judging the act’s value, and you’ll gain momentum to do even more.
