Nature is restless. The planets are always moving, connecting continually with one another to create resonances that can be harmonious or challenging, infusing each day — and each zodiac sign — with a unique set of astrological circumstances.
Your horoscope can be a powerful tool for setting a daily intention, a practice that is both grounding and empowering.
A daily intention can be as simple as “I will have patience with myself today,” or, “I will take time to breathe when I feel overwhelmed.”
Setting intentions can help set the tone of a busy day, and keep you close to your center and protect your emotional energy. Think of it as a loving boundary for yourself.
So, how can your horoscope assist with this practice?
As the planets move, they influence your natal chart in specific ways, encouraging you to create or explore, or perhaps to pull back and rest.
Each new day is a fresh opportunity to engage with the rhythm of the cosmos, and with no two days being astrologically identical, the possibilities for working intentionally with the planets are endless.
Here are some suggestions for setting intentions with your horoscope.
Follow the Moon
The Moon’s cycle of waxing and waning brings us through moments of abundance and lack, and connecting with the Moon wherever she is in her particular cycle is a helpful way to understand how to make sense of where your energies can be best directed.
Make a Daily Mantra
When reading your horoscope, pay close attention to the language that describes the cosmos that day.
Use the horoscope as a guide, or as a way to check in with yourself.
Does the horoscope accurately reflect your circumstances or your feelings? If yes, or no, use the horoscope to create a mantra to guide you through the day.
For example, if your horoscope mentions that the day will be one fraught with difficult communication, your mantra may be, “Though I may not find the right words, I accept and welcome supportive conversations with myself and others.”
Engaging this practice of setting an intention with your horoscope can bring calm, clarity, and a deepened connection with your own unique astrological experience.
