"Women have internalized the feminist message that we’re beautiful just the way we are, and we accept that everyone’s life is imperfect, but still can’t stop judging each other — and ourselves. We don’t want to acknowledge what a big role material concerns play in that judgment. So we end up doing much of the same work our foremothers did to appear pretty and stylish and well-rounded, but we pretend it isn’t work. We pretend we aren’t even doing it." - Ann Friedman

Let’s come together in our messy, beautiful, weird realness, girls.

Libra: This week, it might be easy to live in the echoes inside your own head; it might be easy to spend your days in your memories and desires. Your funny weird thoughts can light you up, they can give you new energy, they can open up new pathways inside your head. Go on walks by yourself. Stay up late listening to songs about love and fire. You can dream whole new worlds into being this week, but leave a light on in your window. Don’t forget the way back home.

Don’t know about this week’s horoscope but the word home certainly sticks out like an old kerosone lantern at the end of nighttime, summertime dock.

Above all else, be the heroine of your own life.

—Nora

Libra: This week, when you don’t know what to do or when you don’t know where you’re going, try to let yourself be moved by desire. Let the things that you want map out your way; let them light up the path. It can be hard to want so much, but the wanting can guide you. The wanting can fuel you if you don’t hide from it, if you don’t keep it locked up. Let your thoughts wander and keep your heart open. Try to remember your wildest good dreams.
