“What you resist not only persists, but will grow in size.” Carl Gustav Jung
I find myself in the midst of an important, albeit, uncomfortable cycle. It’s one that has reoccurred for as long as I can remember. The only difference, now, is awareness of the fact that the only way I can get out of it is by staying in it. Yes, that’s right: the only way to end a cycle is by seeing it to its end.
How often do we find ourselves exhibiting similar patterns of behavior that get us into trouble? We say, “I’ll never do that again,” until we’re back in the same situation. Our intent is usually to avoid the temptation of repeating past mistakes, knowing they will only bring dissatisfaction. But then all of sudden, we’re right where we started – examples of this could be in regards to an addiction, unhealthy relationship or financial hardship.
History (be it personal or collective) repeats itself when important lessons aren’t learned. While some lessons are easier to learn than others, it’s the harder ones we resist. Such resistance is exactly why certain lessons come up again and again. Our only choice during the next round, then, is to either fight it or face it; the latter option can make a world of difference.
The planets Venus, Jupiter and the Sun are all currently in the sign of Leo. This is brave heart energy (Leo rules the heart in Astrology) that will grant us the courage along with a loving disposition to break habits that bring about completion. This time, we’ve got more than enough cosmic support to move through what feels like a never-ending cycle. You can expect significant progress to be made in the weeks ahead.
Check your horoscope to see what’s in store this week ahead, and don’t forget to read for your Ascendant sign, too.
On the day you were born, all of the planets were positioned in the signs of the Zodiac – not just the Sun. To find out more about your full astrological make up, email Tracey for a personal Astrology reading at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Aries: Some of the toughest lessons you’ve learned over the past few years stem around your investments, shared resources, joint projects, debt, and sexual intimacy. If only others could see your worth and understood what you had to offer, certain ventures might not have suffered. Unfortunately, life doesn’t always work this way, Aries; it’s up to you to decide where you want to devote your time, money and vulnerabilities. Focusing on what you love may be your saving grace.

Taurus: Partnerships have left you perplexed as a result of your own confusion. Being so intent on things going your way in your own time, you often fail to recognize how the more you dig in your heels, the more others choose not to cooperate. You get your stubbornness honestly, dear Bull. If you could only take the time to tap into your emotionality, you may find it easier to understand the position of those close. Instead of relying solely on what’s practical, try considering what you feel. I’m excited to tell you about my new Referral Program! Visit www.randomnessofrudy.com for details.
Gemini: Gemini is known to juggle a lot of balls. But lately, you haven’t been doing so well (sorry, just being honest!). Your attention span is all over the place, and so important lessons beg the need for you to get a better grip, streamlining your focus in a way that promotes productivity. If you can set certain parameters around interactions with others, and the information gleaned from them, you may very well become better equipped at managing the daily affairs of your own personal life. I’m excited to tell you about my new Referral Program! Visit www.randomnessofrudy.com for details.
Cancer: Your authenticity has come into question, Cancer. It’s almost as if you’ve stifled your creative genius for the sake of more adult pursuits. We all come packaged with an inner child, and yours has been repressed for far too long. The only way around this seems to be tied up with how you value all that is unique about you. Don’t let a false fear of being disingenuous lead you to discount your worth and attributes. We already know how genuine you are, so show us your gifts. I’m excited to tell you about my new Referral Program! Visit www.randomnessofrudy.com for details.
Leo: Family responsibilities have really left you feeling somewhat resentful. No doubt, dealings with kin have made you emotionally insecure. You know how to overcome this? Love yourself. I’m not kidding. The fact of the matter is that you are no good to others if you’re not being good to you, first. There are far too many of us out there who get it all wrong, mostly backwards. Grant yourself permission for once to put your needs, desires and independence first. All else will fall into place. I’m excited to tell you about my new Referral Program! Visit www.randomnessofrudy.com for details.
Virgo: How you communicate has resulted in many misunderstandings. It doesn’t help, either, that your thinking has turned negative in recent years, and that optimism has become harder to manifest and sustain. Important lessons in these areas stem around your ability to be mindful of how you converse with others. Interestingly enough, the simple act of tuning into your inner voice is what will lead to successful interactions. Allow your intuition to speak for you; clarity will follow. I’m excited to tell you about my new Referral Program! Visit www.randomnessofrudy.com for details.
Libra: I know too many Libras who doubt themselves, and it all stems from fear, i.e., fear of acknowledging an inherent worth and value. There’s a sense of lack that you may be experiencing psychologically or even financially, and if you don’t find a resolution, you will never get out of this cycle. You might want to talk to your friends and see where they stand in their opinion of you; you may just be surprised by what you learn. If they believe in you, maybe you could believe in you too.

Scorpio: Focus on your life’s work may be what’s necessary to feel better about yourself. When I say life’s work, I don’t mean your job or career. I’m referring to your vocation – the work that you do that brings a sense of fulfillment. This may be the missing piece to the puzzle that is you, and it could explain why you feel such tension with regards to personal initiatives, goals and pursuits. If you can find the time to do more of what you love, you may soon begin loving yourself a little more. I’m excited to tell you about my new Referral Program! Visit www.randomnessofrudy.com for details.
Sagittarius: As you continue to self examine, unveiling hidden fears and angst that need to be released, your faith in all things otherworldly continues to guide you through the trenches. Faith is a wonderful tool you have, but there’s still a dilemma: either you’re not using it, or you’re not doing the inner work that necessitates its use. Stop trying to avoid psychological trauma, and quit ignoring your inner voice. Your faith is mighty, and cosmic Angels surround you. You can trust the universe. I’m excited to tell you about my new Referral Program! Visit www.randomnessofrudy.com for details.
Capricorn: Here’s the thing, Capricorn. If you allow yourself to be vulnerable for the sake of camaraderie and teamwork, you’ll find it much easier to build important connections and experience a sense of belonging. While you are extremely reliable and friendship worthy, there’s an element of caution and reserve you sometimes exhibit that makes others uncomfortable. Let down your guard; no one will embarrass you. You’re too cool and collected for that to happen, anyway. I’m excited to tell you about my new Referral Program! Visit www.randomnessofrudy.com for details.
Aquarius: By building, growing and expanding important connections, you will be in a better position to pursue professional goals. Let’s face it, you haven’t had the easiest time on the career front for a couple of years now, and it’s primarily been due to the fact that certain authority figures have kept you down (or you’ve kept yourself down). That’s why it is imperative for you to engage others for the sake of partnership. Going it alone will not only bring delays, but also consequences. I’m excited to tell you about my new Referral Program! Visit www.randomnessofrudy.com for details.
Pisces: You’re already aware that you have much on your plate, and over the coming year, certain tasks and responsibilities will further fill your days. We’ve been talking about this for a while now, so hopefully you get the point: you’re being challenged to do a better job at managing your daily affairs. I don’t doubt you’ll enjoy being able to multitask using a more streamlined approach. But what exactly does that entail, and how is it conducive to a healthier lifestyle? Ponder that, Pisces. I’m excited to tell you about my new Referral Program! Visit www.randomnessofrudy.com for details.
