With Mars in retrograde, some may be scared to make the first move and initiate changes in their lives during the coming weeks. Sure, you may see better results if you postpone big life transitions until the planets to return to normal, but you can’t let life grind to a halt. No matter what your sign, trust your instincts and do what feels right for you. But before changing your path, do plenty of soul searching to gain a greater understanding of what you want in life. Preparation is your pal.
ARIES (MARCH 21ST- APRIL 19TH)
Pay close attention to your finances this week, Aries. We’re reaching the end of your birthday season and chances are you’ve pushed your budget to its absolute limits this month. Try to reign in your spending and look for ways to have fun without spending money. It is possible, you know!
You’re a sociable creature and as far as you’re concerned, ditching your social life is not an option. Invite your friends over for a night in and encourage everyone to bring a homemade dish of their choice. You’ll be able to try a variety of delicious foods without blowing your budget at an all-you-can-eat restaurant.
- Pay close attention to your finances
- Find ways to have fun for free
- Don’t neglect your social life
It’s your birthday month and you won’t let anything or anyone bring you down. Good for you, Taurus!
You had a creative few days last week and you’re feeling ready to tackle anything life throws at you. Keen to make your mark on the world, your birthday season offers you the perfect opportunity for self-reflection and goal setting. Take a look at your most recent achievements and think about how you’re going to propel yourself forward in the future. Don’t be afraid to say ‘no’ to things that you don’t want to do. After all, this month is all about you!
- Make your mark on the world
- Reflect on the past and plan for the future
- Don’t be afraid to say ‘no’
With your birthday season edging closer, it’s time to simplify your life so you can truly enjoy your birthday. Embark on an adventure to lighten your load spiritually, emotionally and physically.
Declutter your home and be ruthless with your possessions. Not worn those jeans in the last 12 months? Get rid of them! Found an old family heirloom that doesn’t make you happy? See if a relative wants it instead.
Stop wasting time and energy on toxic friendships that don’t bring you the love and laughter you deserve. You don’t need to ditch these people completely, but be sure to no longer make them a priority in life. And finally, meditate. Even if you can only spend 10 minutes being mindful each day, it will do you the world of good.
- Declutter your home
- Put toxic friendships on the back burner
You’re certainly not one to sit back and watch life pass you by, Cancer. That’s for sure.
Even when you’d rather spend the day on the sofa, there’s this little voice in your head that urges you to get up and reach for your dreams.
Some of your friends are envious of your ability to achieve greatness but they don’t often see the late nights and early mornings that go into your achievements.
Continue to reach for the moon, dear Cancer. You’ll soon make a name for yourself as a force to be reckoned with. On the off chance you do succumb to the occasional duvet day, don’t be too hard on yourself. You deserve it, after all.
- Stay ambitious
- Take regular breaks
- Don’t be too hard on yourself
You’re slowly learning how to look after Number One and it’s paying off, Leo. By prioritising self-improvement, your self-confidence has reached impressive new levels. The people around you have noticed a change and they’re in awe of your charm and presence.
This new found charisma is helping you progress your career with ease. Colleagues are approaching you for advice on a daily basis and you’re finding yourself displaying leadership qualities you never knew you had. In the coming weeks you may start to feel like a big fish in a small pond but this certainly isn’t a sign you should leap into a new job just yet. With Mars in retrograde, you may see better results if you hold off making drastic career changes until the planets have settled.
- Keep looking after yourself
- Be a leader
- Don’t jump straight into a new role until you’re sure it’s the right move
The dust seems to have finally settled from last week’s drama and thanks to you, the relationships around you remain intact. After working hard to keep the peace, you’re feeling exhausted and ready for a well-deserved break.
You feel overwhelmed with wanderlust and you’re desperate to meet new people and experience new places. Locate your passport ASAP because you may be soon met with a once-in-a-lifetime travel opportunity. Whether you find tickets to Paris on your nightstand one morning or your boss sends you to a conference in the city that never sleeps, unexpected surprises may lie ahead.
- Give into feelings of wanderlust
- Be ready to take a big leap at short notice
- Enjoy the surprises life throws your way
A long-time acquaintance has become your new best friend and you can’t believe they’ve been right under your nose all this time. Whether they’re a work colleague or a Facebook friend you’ve barely spoken to until now, their friendship is a pleasant surprise.
Like a glove, they fit into your wider social circle so perfectly and your team feels stronger than ever before.
However, while they may be ashamed to admit it, one of your oldest friends may be feeling a pang of jealousy. Although they have the best intentions they’re a little worried about losing you. Don’t neglect your old friends and be sure to spend time with them individually.
- Enjoy the excitement of a new friendship
- Look out for a well-meaning but jealous friend
- Don’t neglect the people who mean the most to you
The start of the week comes with exciting news that leaves you smiling from ear to ear and benefitting from a much-needed surge in self-belief.
This calls for a celebration but keep your head down and take it easy until the weekend. Going wild so early on in the week could leave you suffering from fatigue by Wednesday and cause you to miss out on valuable social opportunities by the weekend.
Put the partying on the back burner until Friday and you’re sure to have a crazy weekend full of events you might never remember with people you’ll never forget.
- Celebrate exciting news
- Don’t burn the candle at both ends too early in the week
- Prepare for a weekend to (ideally )remember
Never one to give up at the first hurdle, your health streak continues and shows no sign of stopping. Sure, you may have spent the weekend eating great food in even greater company, but it was so worth it.
A friend wants to follow in your footsteps and become a healthier version of themselves. If they invite you to a fitness class, don’t let them down. With your help every step of the way, they’re sure to complete each workout with a smile on their face. Don’t worry – they won’t slow you down, they’ll spur you on.
This week isn’t all about fitness, of course. Revamp your schedule and spring clean your life. If there’s a room in your house overflowing with junk, it’s time to tackle that now. With that weight off your shoulders, you’ll thank yourself later.
- Don’t punish yourself for life’s indulgences
- Help a friend with a new fitness routine
- Spring clean your life
With summer fast approaching, don’t be afraid to sign up for a sponsored run. It will give you the motivation required to take your fitness routine to the next level.
Single? Sparks could fly if you’re willing to keep an open mind. Maybe you’ll meet The One in a romantic coffee shop setting or perhaps you’ll meet them online. Make it easy for the perfect person to find you by getting out there and being proactive.
Coupled-up Capricorns will be feeling stronger than ever and it may even be time to take the next step in your relationship. This could be anything from your first holiday together to the wedding of the century.
- Sign up for a sporty challenge
- Single Capricorns should keep an open mind and be proactive on their search for love
- Loved-up Capricorns should be prepared to take the next step
This week is all about party planning and entertaining your nearest and dearest, Aquarius. You’re a social butterfly with bags of creativity and organisational skills to die for.
In fact, the party preparation stage is one of your favourite bits. You love filling your shopping trolley with delicious treats before putting on a fine spread of goodies. There’s just one problem…your budget! On your mission to throw the perfect party, don’t try to please everyone. You’ll save so much time if you make the decision between sausage rolls and cocktail sausages yourself rather than texting everyone to ask their buffet preferences.
Try to get out of people-pleasing mode in other areas of your life too. Be decisive and stand by your choices. We may not know the key to success but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.
- Plan the party of the century
- Don’t try to please everyone
- Be decisive and use your initiative
PISCES (FEBRUARY 19TH- MARCH 20TH)
You spent so much time last week planning for the future that your brain is overflowing with ideas. Be careful not to take too much onboard at once though, Pisces. After all, you’ve never been the most productive multi-tasker. Pursue just one task at a time and focus on the present rather than thinking too far ahead. Prioritisation is a much-needed ingredient in your recipe to success.
Once you’ve got your organisational juices flowing, your calendar will be filled with fun activities. From surprise parties to music festivals, your social life is set to explode this summer.
- Avoid taking on too much at once
- Prioritise the most important tasks
- Get set for an exciting summer
