The Rumblr’s in-house astrologer, Madame Clairevoyant, presents her latest dispatch from the stars:
Aries: This week will be full of challenges, full of chances, of opportunities to change, to grow, to move into brighter, wilder places. Take these chances when you can, but don’t get reckless. Try to move carefully, try not to rush, try to appreciate this strange dizzying space on the verge of newness, on the verge of greatness, on the verge of some kind of happiness you’ve missed for a long time. Try to move carefully enough that you can still be gentle, still do the dishes, still call your mom. Listen to songs with weird rhythms and listen to songs about coming home.
Taurus: This week, the world around you is going to unwind a little and it’s going to loosen its grip on you. This week you can feel very free, if you try. Spend your days taking long naps and reading long books and working on the projects that make you feel alive, the projects that you could spend your whole life on. Trust your thoughts this week, trust your body, trust that your brain and your blood and your hands can guide you through your days. Listen to songs about highways or forests or love in wintertime.
Gemini: This week, when the world feels tough, when the air feels heavy, when the light is wrong, try not to worry, try not to get unkind. Just try to work on fitting yourself into the world that exists around you, on finding the cracks and the clearings where you can live. Work on carving out quiet spaces for yourself that are safe, then building homes with the people you love. Work on making places where you can eat and sleep and dream your dreams and experience moments of magic and moments of joy. Listen to songs on weird instruments and songs about friendship.
Cancer: This week, try to keep your heart open to the vastness of the world that you live in, even when it makes you dizzy, even when it’s too much to even look at. Try to keep yourself open to the whole glittering weirdness of your own dreams, open to the triumphant weirdness of your own body. It’s such a wild gift to belong to this world, such a wild gift to be living this life that is yours, and this week, as long as you’re trying, all of your choices will good and they’ll be right and you’ll be able to feel it.
Leo: This is a week for movement, it’s a week for traveling, it’s a week for walking so far that your legs get sore, for doing so much that you fall into bed every night to dream about flying. This is a week for expanding, for shouting as loud as you can, for stretching out your arms, for making your world bigger. Go on a trip or read books about people who aren’t like you at all, or practice your Spanish, or stay up late and listen to all of the songs that make wild caverns open up in your heart.
Virgo: This week, the world is going to offer you truth and it’s going to offer you clarity, even when you’re not looking for it, even if you’re not ready. It’s going to be a good week to get a little distance on your life, to leave town, or take a day off work, or go someplace new for lunch. It’s going to be a good week to imagine wild and different ways of living, to dream of forests or deserts or mountains or quiet night streets, then returning to see yourself in new light, clear and true. Listen to songs about losing things and songs about finding things.
Libra: If you’ve been feeling a little lost, a little off-balance, a little bit out of orbit, things are going to swing back into place this week, they’re going to shift back into focus, they’re going to get sharp and bright and good again. Let this feeling carry you—spend your days outside, spend your days moving, spend your days talking and working and asking the questions that make your brain buzz and your heart sing. Trust yourself to live right this week, trust your own choices, listen to songs about solitude and songs about triumph.
Scorpio: This week, things are going to calm down, they’re going to even out, the world and the sky will be soft around you and the ground will feel solid and real underneath your feet. It’s going to be a good week for getting into a flow, a good week for finding yourself again, a good week for making plans and for finding the rhythms that make your world make sense. This week is going to be kind and it’s going to be warm and it’s going to sparkle at you, gently, quietly. Read stories about traveling, listen to songs about families.
Sagittarius: This is a week for growing tall, growing strong, growing into your powers in ways that are strange and beautiful and bright. It’s a week for rebuilding your favorite dreams and remembering your own depths and your own strangeness and your own brightness. Spend your days with the people you love most and remember your roots, remember the wild gardens and forests of feeling that live inside you, remember the things that keep you connected to the world and the things that let you be brave. Listen to songs that make you move and songs that make you sing.
Capricorn: This week, the world’s going to be open and solid, and the air is going to be clear and bright. It’s a week for nurturing warm feelings inside yourself, toward other people, and toward your weird sweet self, toward the world. It’s a week for hanging out with your friends and loving them as much as you can. Things are going to be okay this week, better than they’ve been in a while, better than you even expect; try not to worry about it, try to just move and feel and take time to eat a good breakfast before you leave in the morning.
Aquarius: If you’ve been frustrated lately, if you’ve felt stuck, if things haven’t been quite right, they’re going to be better this week. It’s going to be a week of answers, a week of gifts. There are good things waiting for you this week, just around the corner, just waiting for you to look out the window, waiting for you to notice them. Good things will come to you this week if you work, if you’re kind, if you keep believing in the things you feel and the things you know in your bones. Listen to TLC.
Pisces: The world is going to feel wide and clear around you this week, weird and generous and full of life. It’s a good week for working hard, but not worrying any more than you have to. Focus on your poems or your paintings or your clothes or the songs you sing to yourself in the shower; focus on the things that make you feel bright and alive. This is a week for being your truest, most generous self, and for spending time with the people who recognize this in you, who love it in you, who see you most truly.

Illusions of the Body was made to tackle the supposed norms of what we think our bodies are supposed to look like. Most of us realize that the media displays the only the prettiest photos of people, yet we compare ourselves to those images. We never get to see those photos juxtaposed against a picture of that same person looking unflattering. That contrast would help a lot of body image issues we as a culture have.
Within the series I tried get a range of body types, ethnicities & genders to show how everyone is a different shape & size; there is no “normal”. Each photo was taken with the same lighting & the same angle.
Celebrate your shapes, sizes & the odd contortions your body can get itself into. The human body is a weird & beautiful thing.
