ARIES (MARCH 21ST- APRIL 19TH)
Stop taking life so seriously, Aries. You have big ambitions and you’re keen to build yourself a reputation as a force to be reckoned with in your industry, but this sometimes comes at an price. Let your hair down and take time out to goof around. Do something totally silly and out of character. Let your inner child run free! Play a game you loved when you were a kid or spend a day watching cartoons. If you’re not already hooked on Pokemon Go, it may be time to venture outside with a pocket full of Poke balls.
People tend to turn to you in times of crisis as they admire your wisdom and ability to give brilliant advice. Although you’re supportive, you’re never afraid to give constructive criticism and tell your friends the truth. The truth may be hard to hear, but your friends love your honesty. By speaking your mind and telling people how it is, you help them progress and grow.
Be extra careful not to betray a friend’s trust this week. They confided in you and, if you’re not careful, you may unintentionally spill their secrets in an attempt to impress others. It’s not worth sacrificing an old friendship to fit in with a new crowd.
Although you’re one of the zodiac’s most fun-loving signs, you sometimes find yourself overwhelmed with emotion and negativity. Switch off the news and step away from social media. A constant stream of bad news cannot be healthy and sometimes we need to take time out to remind ourselves how much kindness and magic there is in the world.
This week, focus on creating your own things rather than consuming the work of others. Instead of reading blog posts written by others, write your own. Instead of binge-watching your favourite TV show, spend an afternoon writing your own script. Don’t worry about perfecting it – just let your imagination run free. Seeing creativity flowing through your fingertips is sure to lift your mood.
Use your head, Cancer. As important as it is to follow your heart, it shouldn’t be the only decision-maker. If every choice you make is influenced by your emotions alone, you might end up in a position you regret. Faced with a dilemma? Sleep on it. You’ll find it so much easier to think clearly if you give your mind and body a chance to rest and recuperate.
You may be seeking revenge in the next few days. If so, let it go. There’s a risk you may make assumptions and throw accusations around that could prove damaging to yourself and others.
You might be feeling exposed this week, Leo. Someone’s let the cat out the bag and your secret is out. You might feel as though everyone is looking at you but take no notice of this paranoia. This too shall pass.
Spend a few days keeping your head down and staying out of trouble. If you’ve done something wrong, you may be tempted to speak out and defend yourself, but bide your time and hold your tongue instead. If you speak your mind in the heat of the moment, you may end up saying things you’ll later regret.
Don’t be afraid to break tradition, Virgo. Perhaps your family has very strict expectations of you or your workplace has a certain way of doing things. Sit down with a pen and paper and make a plan of action. How are you going to change things? Your opinions are important and you shouldn’t stay silent to please others. Who knows, by breaking the mould and going your own way, you could reap results that benefit all involved.
In other news, romance could blossom for single Virgos willing to step outside of their comfort zone. Virgos in love are likely to see their relationships strengthen following big news from a friend or family member.
Has a friend said or done something that’s hurt your feelings? Don’t let their words and actions get you down, Libra. Rather than getting defensive or cutting ties with your friends, address the situation head on and give them a call to discuss things. You never know, they may be incredibly sorry for hurting you. By being the bigger person and making an effort to rectify the situation, you can strengthen your relationship and resolve the issue like the adult that you are.
You have no time for petty drama, Scorpio, and yet you may find yourself drowning in a sea of controversy and arguments this week. Although you’d rather stay completely out of it, you may have to act as a mediator between squabbling friends. Your wisdom and lack of judgement could prove invaluable in terms of resolving issues and mending damaged friendships.
Make an extra effort to be kind to others this week and demonstrate the way friendships should be. Organise a party or get together with your nearest and dearest. Offer to help a friend in need. Whether a friend is drowning under wedding plans or trying to move house, lend a helping hand.
A friend or relative may refuse to accept your help in the coming days, Sagittarius. Whether you’re dishing out advice or offering a gift, don’t be offended if you’re met with a polite ‘thank you’. Although you think you’re being helpful, forcing your views on others isn’t going to benefit anyone.
Learn to stand back and allow others to make decisions for themselves. By forcing your opinions on them, you’ll only create an unnecessary divide.
If you’re struggling to find direction in your life, a tarot reading may help you gain an insight into what lies ahead.
If you’ve been a busy bee over the last few months, your hard work may really begin to pay off in the coming weeks. You may be feeling on top of the world and ready to tackle anything life throws at you, but be careful not to throw yourself right in at the deep end without any prior research and planning.
Although you have a steady and loyal support network behind you, one or two people might be out to topple you over and steal your crown. They’re looking for signs of weakness and this is precisely why you should plan the next steps carefully.
Remember, the jealousy of others speaks far more about their own securities than it says about you. So don’t let any negativity bring you down.
Remember the old phrase ‘cutting off your nose to spite your face’? Well, don’t do that, Aquarius. You may be tempted to make a bold statement or say ‘no’ to something for no reason other than to prove your point but if such a move won’t actually help your cause, what’s the point? It may be necessary to swallow your pride and do what makes sense. Although you may face conflicting emotions and people may be dragging you in different directions, deep down you know the right thing to do.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 19TH- MARCH 20TH)
Make your finances your number one priority this week, Pisces. If you’re in financial difficulty, there’s no point burying your head in the sand and hoping your problems will go away. You need to address the cause of the problem and start fighting it.
Are you in debt? Sit down and work out exactly how big the problem is. Ask for help if you need it. Do you have a savings account? If not, make a start. A little bit of spare cash each week can soon add up over time.
If you’re lacking motivation, have a good think about what you’d like to achieve in life. With a specific vision in your mind for the way you’d like your life to pan out, you’re more likely to succeed in your goals.
