ARIES (MARCH 21ST- APRIL 19TH)
Be honest with yourself and others, Aries. You sometimes have a tendency to bottle up your emotions and pray everything will work itself out but deep down you know the chances of that happening are slim.
In an attempt to appear ‘nice’ to others, it’s only natural to avoid saying what we really feel but by telling fibs and tip-toeing around the issue, we can actually cause more hurt in the long run. This week, make honesty your number one priority. Obviously be tactful and compassionate about it though.
Are you feeling a little under the weather, Taurus? Even if you’re not battling a cold, you might be feeling a little worse for wear emotionally. If the pressures of day to day life are taking their toll on you, don’t be too proud to take some time out to relax and recuperate.
With the festive season upon us, you may be feeling a little stressed – particularly if you still have plenty of shopping left to do. Take a deep breath and remind yourself that Christmas is about more than just stuff! If your budget is tight, speak to a handful of friends and relatives and see if you can have a gift-free Christmas this year. You never know – they may be glad of your suggestion!
Life is a journey, not a destination, Gemini. You’re an ambitious soul with big dreams but sometimes you’re so focussed on your goals that you forget to look around you at all the wonderful things you currently have. Whether you’re working towards a particular promotion, saving for a house, or searching desperately for love, don’t forget to enjoy the voyage itself. Life is filled with ups and downs and in order to get a rainbow, you’ll need to endure a little rain!
Are you settling for less than you deserve, Cancer? Whether you’re sticking with a partner who doesn’t deserve you or staying in a job that doesn’t inspire you to jump out of bed in the morning, question whether your perseverance could be doing more harm than good. You don’t want to be seen as a quitter but sometimes it’s necessary to quit in order to improve our lives and boost our wellbeing.
If you’re struggling to make a decision, question whether your current situation really makes you happy or it simply makes you comfortable. You deserve more than comfortable!
Are you a relationship hopper, Leo? If you have a tendency to leap from one serious relationship to the next, you may be ruining your chances of real love. If a dating hiatus sounds like your worst nightmare, it could be the very thing you need. If you recently experienced a break up, take some time out to focus on yourself. As cliche as it may sound, spending time with friends and family instead of potential love interests could do you the world of good.
By spending some quality time alone you can strengthen the love you have for yourself and improve your chances of finding true love. Whether you’re single or loved up, this is a great week for listening to spiritual podcasts and self-improvement TED talks.
Have you fallen head over heels for someone new, Virgo? If this person feels like The One, try not to get too carried daydreaming of wedding bells and honeymoons, particularly if it’s very early days. Relationships are a journey and although the early stages can be exciting, it can take a long time to really get to know and understand someone. Instead of throwing yourself in at the deep end, take each day as it comes.
This week you might feel as though your future is set in stone and there’s little leeway for change. Thankfully, this couldn’t be further from the truth! There are so many possible routes you could take and it’s up to you to steer your life in the direction you choose. The rest is still unwritten.
You are far stronger than you think, Libra. This week you may get some news that has you curling up into a ball and wondering how you’ll carry on. Although it might not seem like it just yet, you’ll not only be able to survive, but you’ll also be able to thrive!
Time is a fantastic healer and when combined with self love, it can work wonders in just about any situation. So whether you’re going through a break up, a job loss or a rough patch with someone you care about, just know that everything will get better with time.
This week may be a little rocky, Scorpio. And when times get tough, you may be tempted to turn to someone from your past for comfort and support. Before picking up the phone, ask yourself whether this small act could open a can of worms and unleash old feelings or emotions that you’ve tried to bury deep inside.
Instead of trying to make amends with an old flame or relative you’ve not spoken to in years, question whether an existing friend could help instead. Surround yourself by positive people who lift you up rather than focusing on those who may have caused upset in the past.
This week you’re likely to be feeling more creative than ever. And with Christmas on the horizon, this is easily one of the best times of the year to get your creative juices flowing. From wrapping gifts in a quirky way to hosting a magical Santa’s grotto-inspired Christmas party, your artsy side is desperate to run riot through the snow.
Looking for your partner in crime? Opposites attract this week. You might not find a romantic partner, but by keeping your options open and socialising as much as possible, you could find a mischievous new friend to share countless adventures with.
Are you being too hard on yourself, Capricorn? You’re a sensible soul but sometimes you might be guilty of being a little too strict. Don’t be afraid to take a break and let your hair down. If you’ve been putting off the fun stuff until Christmas day, you’ll only end up suffering from serious burnout. That’s the last thing you need during the festive season!
Have you been trying to make everyone happy lately? If so, there’s a good chance that you’re lying to yourself and others. It’s impossible to be popular with everyone while still remaining true to ourselves. Sometimes you have to put an end to people-pleasing behaviour and focus on whatever it is that you want from life. As long as you’re not hurting anyone, where’s the harm?
Single and hating it? Stop looking for someone to complete you. You’re perfectly fine on your own! Rather than looking for someone to fill a void in your life, you’d be wise to look for someone to complement what you already have. If you keep making the same mistakes in your relationships, do something different.
If you’re already loved up, be sure to spend some time on your own this week, Aquarius. Although you and your partner may be inseparable, alone time is crucial in order to progress and develop independently.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 19TH- MARCH 20TH)
Let yourself feel your emotions, Pisces. If someone’s telling you to toughen up or forget about something that’s getting you down, it may be worth distancing yourself from this person temporarily. In order to fully heal and overcome life’s challenges, we often need to embrace the rollercoaster of feelings that come with it. Don’t let anyone else dictate to you how you should feel or behave.
Be sure to spend time doing the things you love this week, Pisces. This could involve anything from visiting an old friend to taking yourself to the cinema to watch a movie you’ve been dying to see.
