“We plan, God Laughs” ~Yiddish proverb

I was commenting the other day about how my life has changed quite dramatically over these past few years; I’m definitely not where I thought I would be. Of course, where I was wasn’t so terrible. I’ve had an amazing life ride so far! It’s just that I had assumed I’d still be on that first path headed in a certain trajectory. Enter the saying “we plan, God laughs.”

Nowadays, I find myself content to just sit back and observe how events unfold in my life. It seems this current iteration is the right one – I’m happy, and aware of how I can be of service. But the uncertainty of it all is still challenging. I may be in the habit of asking about circumstances when in doubt, but that’s only if I can muster the courage to do so.

To be honest, there’s a part of me that’s afraid of where I’m going, as if it’s anyone’s guess! Oftentimes it’s harder to wish for clarity than it is to know the truth of a matter, out of fear of what that may be. Nevertheless, the cosmos is telling us not to be afraid this week. We’re being encouraged to walk towards what is with bravery. Here goes nothing!

How ironic; I read the stars for a living, and it still doesn’t exempt me from sudden twists of fate!

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 tracey@randomnessofrudy.com.

Aries: This week, you are overflowing with creative energy, busy with recreational activities, spending more time mentoring those younger than you, and possibly engaged in a whirlwind romance! To say you feel like a kid in a candy store would be an understatement, and I hope you’ve got a solid list of playmates on speed dial to help keep life thrilling! Take this new joie de vivre as a sign of brighter days, Aries. You deserve it; the cosmos is bringing good times in the weeks ahead. I’m excited to tell you about my new Referral Program! Visit www.randomnessofrudy.com for details.

Taurus: Just when you thought life couldn’t get any crazier on the home front, there it is! The truth is, you could use the distraction. Matters at work have had you on edge long enough, and that will continue to be the case throughout the remainder of this week. I suggest you use the influences above to your advantage, Taurus. Paint a wall, plan for your baby’s nest, or simply pamper your emotional self with a little TLC. Family gatherings could also do the trick, as long as you’re flexible. I’m excited to tell you about my new Referral Program! Visit www.randomnessofrudy.com for details.

Gemini: Alright Gemini, it’s time to do what you do best: socialize! Last week was a little cray leading up to Sunday’s Full Moon. Now that you’ve been able to sort out a few things (namely your personal truths) you can begin interacting with those who speak your language. Check out the local scene this week, or visit a neighboring community. You may find that you’re back in your element learning about others, and absorbing their knowledge offered. Can you say information overload? I’m excited to tell you about my new Referral Program! Visit www.randomnessofrudy.com for details.

Cancer: Due to the courage you exhibited last week by asking for what you need, you may find that life is going well for you on the career front, and that others are beginning to recognize what you have to offer in the way of skills and talents. Hopefully, this will lead to the proper compensation. But first, you’re going to have to ask yourself a pretty hard question: What is my worth? This time, don’t measure it based off of what others have to say. Base it off of what you know is true for you. I’m excited to tell you about my new Referral Program! Visit www.randomnessofrudy.com for details.

Leo: Hopefully you’ve been able to express your truth. If not, the opportunity will arise this week. This begs the need, of course, to be mindful of how you come across. People know by now that your bark is much worse than your bite, so try throwing them off by purring instead. For the sake of important connections, you can’t go on making so many demands. Listen to your higher self this time. If you can stay present in all interactions without bringing the focus back to you, you will win. I’m excited to tell you about my new Referral Program! Visit www.randomnessofrudy.com for details.

Virgo: This week will be a highly revealing one, dear Virgo. You’ll become aware of a few personal truths that finally solve the riddle in your heart. Of course, this will involve you taking some time to yourself for the sake of contemplation. You may also have to dig deep into the trenches of your soul (where you sometimes prefer not to go) in order to really come to an important understanding. It will be well worth the journey, I promise. All you need is a little courage, and you’ve got plenty of it. I’m excited to tell you about my new Referral Program! Visit www.randomnessofrudy.com for details.

Libra: There comes a point in time when you can no longer follow the crowd. You have to do what’s best for you, which not only takes courage, but also inspiration. Over the past few years, unpredictable one-on-one connections have left you feeling sad, alone and isolated. But what have these experiences taught you, dear Libra? I bet it had something to do with owning your truth, instead of apologizing for it. Now that you are aware, how do you intend to pursue your dreams? I’m excited to tell you about my new Referral Program! Visit www.randomnessofrudy.com for details.

Scorpio: Career matters seem to be getting the bulk of your attention, Scorpio, and that’s totally fine. There are some wonderful things happening here (even it feels more stressful than celebratory), and it would behoove you to keep your eye on certain professional goals. Just don’t let this come at the expense of home and family matters; there are wonderful things happening here too. Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, will be to find the right balance in daily affairs. I’m excited to tell you about my new Referral Program! Visit www.randomnessofrudy.com for details.

Sagittarius: This week, shifts in your thinking and philosophies will bring creativity, love and romance to your personal life. As you strike a balance between what you know to be true in your heart, and how you life your life accordingly, certain friendships and associations may begin to change and evolve. All is not lost, however; what will be replaced involves like-minded connection. The cosmos is working in your favor, and important contacts made now will have lasting effects. I’m excited to tell you about my new Referral Program! Visit www.randomnessofrudy.com for details.

Capricorn: Important mergers and commitments have forced you to question your worth. It’s been an exercise that begged the need for you to assess your own value regardless of what others have said. This has primarily played out for you on the home and family front, as you’ve had to contend with sudden changes over the past few years that left you emotionally unstable. Currently, the cosmos is in favor of new negotiations in all life areas, primarily those that bring emotional resolve. I’m excited to tell you about my new Referral Program! Visit www.randomnessofrudy.com for details.

Aquarius: This week, your focus is on important others – from business partners to your spouse. Yours is a sign of freedom and rebellion, so even you might be surprised by just how much attention and power you’re giving them. There’s no use fighting it, Aquarius. This will be the case for a few more weeks. I suggest, then, that you surrender to all that’s transpiring, offering the occasional quip on how frustrated you are about the whole thing, all the while sticking with current circumstances. I’m excited to tell you about my new Referral Program! Visit www.randomnessofrudy.com for details.

Pisces: As life begins to pick up speed, Pisces, it will be important that you find time for rest and solitude. Without it, you can’t even begin to map out your day (or your week), and you’ll only feel depleted when all is said and done. I suggest focusing on one thing at a time, starting with what you value. Other things can be put on the back burner, so there’s no need for you to feel bad about having to issue a “not now” or asking for a rain check. Prioritizing life should be a priority this week. I’m excited to tell you about my new Referral Program! Visit www.randomnessofrudy.com for details.
