ARIES (MARCH 21ST- APRIL 19TH)
Was this Christmas a little different to those that came before? If so, avoid dwelling on the past or longing for people or places you’ve loved and lost. Change can be difficult to get used to but it’s a natural part of life and essential in order for us to progress and grow.
With New Year fast approaching, it’s time to look forward rather than back. A little reflection can be beneficial but too much rumination can be stifling. Spend an afternoon thinking about what you’d like to get out of 2017 and how you plan to get there.
Are you keeping secrets, Taurus? Whether you’ve uncovered some classified information by accident or you convinced a friend to confide in you, think carefully before spilling the beans, especially when it comes to secrets that aren’t yours to tell!
You may bump into someone from your past this week, Taurus. If this person evokes negative memories, don’t let them get you down or spoil your post-festive fun. Sometimes you’ve got to ask yourself the question ‘are they worth it?’
Have you been feeling less than festive this year? If recent events have left you feeling a little exhausted, take this opportunity to really relax and clear your mind. Although you’re usually a social butterfly by nature, this could be the year that you curl up under a thick blanket and spend time with your nearest and dearest in front of the telly.
If the thought of spending the remainder of your Christmas break in front of the TV leaves you feeling restless, why not pick up a new hobby or set yourself a challenge you can do from the comfort of your own home? From knitting to reading a different book every day, there are plenty of things you can do without having to leave the house.
When the drinks are flowing and the emotions are running high, be careful not to say or do things you may later regret. Your usually-positive YOLO attitude to life can take a turn for the worst when you’ve had a few drinks so be careful not to go overboard.
Christmas day may well be behind us but that doesn’t mean the celebrations have to end just yet. Make friends and family your number one priority and remind yourself of all the wonderful things you have in life.
If a new love interest is promising you the world, it may be time to question their motives. It’s easy to get swept up in the romance the festive season brings but it’s important to keep your feet on the ground and head screwed on. Is this special someone really as smitten as they claim to be or are they ‘future faking’ to get what they want?
With the New Year just around the corner, this could be an ideal time for some self reflection. What have you achieved over the last twelve months and what are your dreams for the future? By having an honest think about our strengths and weaknesses we can transform our lives and propel ourselves forwards.
Are you finding it hard to get over an old flame, Virgo? You’re not the first person to feel this way about someone you loved and lost and you certainly won’t be the last. Things will get better with time and you may be able to speed up the process by taking good care of yourself.
Is social media a trigger? Take some time away from it. Are you devoting time to things that make you happy? If not, rejig your schedule and make fun a priority. Are you surrounding yourself with people you love? No? You know what to do! Even if you’re not battling heartbreak right now, the above advice can still apply. We all can benefit from making ourselves a priority in life.
Now that Christmas is over, you might be feeling a little deflated. But there’s plenty left to look forward to. If your social schedule’s looking a little empty, be the proactive one this week and make the plans. From inviting your friends to yours for a takeaway to booking tickets for a show, your mates will appreciate you going the extra mile.
Looking for love? If you’re willing to step outside your comfort zone, your bravery could lead you to someone new. Whether you start a new hobby, sign up for an online dating app, or attend a speed dating event with a friend, there are plenty of ways to get out there.
Did you follow our advice from last week? If so, you’re probably basking in good karma and appreciation right now. Don’t let the good vibes go straight to your head though. Rather than putting your feet up and considering your work complete, go the extra mile and keep being kind to others.
If you missed last week’s horoscope where we suggested you spread love and joy with those around you, it’s not too late to make the world a more positive place. Treat a sibling to a delicious home cooked meal, help a friend clear out their basement, and offer to wash a neighbour’s car. With the New Year just around the corner, your kindness could set you up for months of positivity.
Have you been looking for permission and approval recently, Sagittarius? If so, it’s time to put an end to this. Instead of approaching the things you want with caution and reluctance, just go for it! It doesn’t matter what other people think of you. All that matters is that you’re pursuing your dreams, being your authentic self and not hurting anyone in the process.
Guard your time fiercely this week, Sagittarius. You can be generous with it if you wish, but be careful to only spend it on those who deserve your undivided attention.
Don’t be too proud to say you’re sorry, Capricorn. If you’ve done something that’s offended someone, you may get defensive, particularly if you didn’t mean any harm. Sometimes it’s easier to just apologise and admit you were in the wrong. By doing so, you can heal wounds and prevent further fallouts.
Use vulnerability to your advantage this week. When we allow ourselves to be vulnerable and let our guard down, we blossom and grow. Your honesty is without a doubt your greatest strength in the days to come and by wearing your heart on your sleeve, you could make the remainder of the Christmas break even more magical.
Have you spent a considerable portion of the Christmas break waiting to hear from someone who’s no longer in your life? Take this as a sign it’s time to move on. Whether it’s a former partner, an old friend or a distant relative, holding onto someone who does not love, respect and appreciate you is a waste of your time and energy.
This week, find ways to put this energy to better use. Perhaps you can channel it into creativity and make something you’ll be proud of for years to come. Alternatively, focus this energy on those who are able to show they care for you.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 19TH- MARCH 20TH)
Are you looking for someone to rescue you? Be your own hero, Pisces. It doesn’t matter what the movies tell you; everyone is too busy trying to save themselves. By being your own superhero, you can emerge triumphant and strong from any situation, safe in the knowledge that you’re going to be okay.
For the remainder of the festive season, think carefully about what makes you happy and list them on a piece of paper. Make a second list including all the things you do every day. Take a look at the two lists and adjust them accordingly.
