ARIES (MARCH 21ST- APRIL 19TH)
Have you been plugging away at a particular dream or goal only to find yourself moving at a snail’s pace? Perhaps you need to work smarter rather than harder. Before giving up and admitting defeat, ask yourself whether you’re focussing your efforts on the wrong thing. Is there a smarter and more time effective way, Aries?
If someone close to you has been nagging you recently, you may feel like a volcano that’s about to erupt. Keep your cool and avoid damaging any relationships. This person’s only nagging because they care about you. They want you to achieve your full potential and sometimes you need that extra push to get the show on the road.
Is your fear of losing someone close to you hindering your life, Taurus? If this stress and worry is spiralling out of control and preventing you from living life to the full, it’s time to check yourself before you wreck yourself. If you’re not careful, it could damage your relationships with others, particularly if you can’t help but smother those you care about in overprotective love. Take a step back and give others their breathing space. Deep down you know your fears are irrational. Listen to your logical self and let your worries go.
If you’ve been feeling a little overwhelmed recently, now’s the perfect time to address the issue. Have you taken on a challenge that you’re no longer enjoying? Perhaps you agreed to help a friend with an ongoing project but now you’re struggling to find the time. You’re probably worrying about hurting your friend’s feelings and letting them down but it’s best to rip the plaster off quickly and get it over with. The sooner you tell them the truth, the sooner you can get on with other things and they can find help elsewhere. A true friend will understand the predicament you’re in.
Are you approaching the end of an era, Cancer? Perhaps your relationship has just ended, you’ve left a job, graduated from university or a family member has moved away. Whether you’re happy, sad or battling a range of emotions following this big life change, don’t let it consume your thoughts too much. If you’ve achieved something great, don’t spend too long praising yourself. After a short period of celebration, move onto the next challenge. If, however, you’re mourning the loss of something special, surround yourself with love and take your time to recover. There is no rush. Take all the time you need.
Someone’s failing to see your point of view, Leo. Whether you’ve been working for someone for free or you’re trying to change a friend’s mind on an important matter, it can be hard to get people to see things from another person’s perspective. Don’t let this person’s lack of awareness drag you down. Instead, simply walk away when you’ve had enough. If they chase after you with offers of a compromise, fantastic! But if they’re unwilling to budge, prepare to move on to bigger and better things.
This week could see you giving up something you once thought you’d stick with forever. If your relationship’s making you desperately unhappy, a bad habit is draining your finances and damaging your health, or your second job is working you into an early grave, it could be time to call it a day. Don’t make any irrational decisions though. Think carefully about what you want in life and ask whether your current situation is helping or hindering.
Do you have mixed feelings towards a certain someone in your life? This could be anyone from your partner to a relative. Before calling it quits and severing ties, take a look at yourself and question whether there’s anything you need to do to improve your relationship. Taking ownership of our lives can be incredibly powerful and liberating, even if others seem to be the ones to blame. Take responsibility and make an active effort to make a change.
By the time the weekend comes around, you’ll probably be in need of a pamper session. Book a spa day or invite your friends round for a night of Netflix, pizza, and laughter.
A change of scenery could give you a fresh perspective on things, Scorpio. Break out of the routine and do something different. Start small by rearranging your workspace and work your way up to crazy spontaneous plans. If you’re not usually the one to organise get togethers with your friends, it’s time to be creative and arrange something fun. Paintballing could be a great option if your budgets will allow it but don’t be afraid of something more cheap and cheerful. A picnic in the park should do the trick!
If you’ve been lusting after holidays and foreign destinations, push any doubts to the back of your mind and get your flights sorted! Life is a book and those who do not travel read only one page!
Don’t let procrastination zap your happiness away, Sagittarius. Whether you’re putting off a particular task because it’s boring or you have a lack of confidence in yourself, procrastinating won’t help the matter. Don’t obsess over the finished product – just start.
Surround yourself with positive people this week. Keep an eye out for those who always have a smile on their face and are quick to crack a joke. If you’ve been taking things very seriously in recent week, it’s time to let your hair down. Teamed with your new found refusal to procrastinate, this really is going to be a work hard play hard week.
Focus on building your own little squad and support system, Capricorn. If you already have a pretty solid group of friends, look for ways you can strengthen your bond even further. What are your weaknesses? Is anyone in the group prone to causing unnecessary conflict? Acknowledge this as soon as possible and work as a team to prevent any drama arising.
If you’re an introverted Capricorn who loves alone time, try to step out of your comfort zone and nurture some new friendships. Although you’re perfectly content when you’re by yourself, there will always be times where you need someone to confide in. And since you’re such a kind, energetic and funny person, there’s no point letting your best qualities hide away. Share your fantastic personality with others and you never know what might happen.
If your love life has been a little erratic and unpredictable in recent months, the coming weeks could see stability return to your life. This may be in the form of a serious relationship but it could equally be the result of a romance ‘dry spell’. If it’s the latter, don’t think of this as a bad thing. In fact, spending a couple of months on self improvement, progression and spirituality could do you a world of good. When your time comes to finally meet The One, you’ll be 100% ready to let true love into your life.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 19TH- MARCH 20TH)
Be extra picky this week, Pisces. Whether someone you’re not so keen on invites you on a date or a less than ideal job offer comes your way, think carefully before saying ‘yes’ to things you don’t really want. You sometimes have a habit of snatching every opportunity that comes your way because you fear you won’t get offered anything better. Have faith in yourself and believe in your abilities and self worth! You’re far more valuable and worthy of love than you give yourself credit for.
