April Horoscopes

By Ichrak Dahou

April is a month of mixed progress. While new beginnings, proper to the Spring season, arrive with enthusiasm and spirit, the retrograde movement of key planets this month will delay robust and firm establishment. Therefore, be sure to give your situations additional thought, care, and consideration. This is more an extended season of seeding than getting brand new ventures off the ground. Continue reading

March Horoscopes

By Ichrak Dahou

This month begins with a vibrant and electric energy that could bring about a quick development, an avalanche of events, or an unexpected stroke of luck that offers a chance to break free. This is a free-wheeling energy that does ask for conscious engagement rather than flow with previous or existing status quo. It is a chance to create something new, and to give the consciousness upgrade that is occurring an outlet through which to express itself!  Continue reading

February Horoscopes

By Ichrak Dahou

February is an eclipse month. During eclipse months, time seems to lose its sense of linearity — it speeds up, and a lot more seems to happen within the space of a calendar month than seems typical or possible. Warrior energy winds through the month. Find ways to appease your inner pioneer, rebellious shit-stirrer, combative lone warrior. It is better to direct these archetypes than to have them direct you!

January Horoscopes

By Ichrak Dahou

The Sun travels through Capricorn for much of this month, and the Sun’s light will bring the earthly energy of Capricorn into our consciousness. Many planets are in Pisces for much of the month, which means psychic fields are more porous than usual. Take care to keep both your physical and emotional spaces energetically clear. Be deliberate about creating and entertaining positive thoughts, and about seeking solutions that are aligned with your personal values. Focus on things that are immediately applicable in your world, rather than giving in to feelings of helplessness about what is happening in the world at large. Continue reading

December Horoscopes

By Ichrak Dahou

December brings a different quality of high octane energy than November did. The planets are reflecting excitement, nervous tension, and impatience with the status quo. Responding quickly to these impulses will be tempting, and easy to do. But a concurrent influence of caution, deliberateness, and strategy will allow us to rein in our compulsions.  Radical change is called for, but we must proceed with caution and consideration for what needs to be preserved. Continue reading

November Horoscopes

By Ichrak Dahou

There are months that are about chatter and engagement, months about diligence and purity, months about social exchange and the intricacies of a just society, and then there are the months that grab you by the gut and ask you to say without words what you’re really about. That’s part of the reason why Scorpio season is associated with therapy. Therapy, ideally, is a safe space where dropping boundaries and presenting the most raw and honest version of yourself finds a ready container. It is a place to process and heal, to change what used to be a crippling vulnerability into a formidable storehouse of strength. But there is a lot that happens in the middle of those spaces, and there is no skipping over that difficult, tumultuous part. That middle is what Scorpio is about. Continue reading
