ARIES (MARCH 21ST- APRIL 19TH)
What’s your number one priority, Aries? Is it to build a loving relationship with a current or future partner? If love is your ultimate goal, the best thing to do is love yourself first. Self love, esteem and care should form the foundation of your dreams and aspirations. Unless you respect yourself and stay true to your desires, you’ll never build a truly meaningful relationship with others.
It’s time to open yourself up to fresh and new opportunities. You sometimes have a habit of getting stuck in your ways. But your fear of change and reluctance to embrace unfamiliarity could be holding you back and stunting your growth. This week, make a vow to filter out any stresses and strains in your life while making the most of those joyful little moments.
A good deed could do a world of good by the time the weekend comes around. Whether you do something nice for a loved one or a stranger, make an effort to go the extra mile and spread positivity.
Are you taking advantage of the people who love you the most, Gemini? In your quest for happiness, you often seek approval from people who don’t care about you. Meanwhile, you tend to overlook the people who really matter. There are people in your life who shower you with eternal support and admiration but you’re not paying attention.
Whether you have the love of a devoted parent or lifelong loyal friend, don’t forget to appreciate those who quite clearly care about you. If you have to fight for kindness and attention from others, they’re probably not worth your time and energy.
Oops. Did you suffer a setback last week? Whether you cheated on your New Year’s Resolutions or stumbled upon a hurdle in life, try not to get upset about any mishaps or obstacles. Sometimes we have to fail in order to succeed and this could well be the case for you. The important thing is to never give up on your dreams.
Focus on the positive parts of your life instead of the negative aspects, Leo. Instead of stressing about the things you deem to be missing, focus on what you have. After all, a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush!
A friend might let you down this week, Leo. If they’re quick to apologise and prove that they care, don’t let your pride stand in the way of forgiveness.
Are you guilty of ‘when-then’ thinking, Virgo? This happens when you say to yourself “When this happens, I’ll be happy”. Rather than placing your happiness on the backburner and assuming you won’t find joy until you achieve a particular goal, focus on the present. Even when you’re having a bad day, chances are there’ll be a handful of happy moments hidden amongst the bad.
Your energy is contagious this week. If you’re feeling happy, so are those around you. If you’re feeling angry, so will those nearby. To boost your mood, focus on self-care and small acts of kindness.
Do you find yourself editing your behaviour and putting your dreams on hold in order to please a lifelong friend or relative? It’s time to break free from their control and live the life you really want. When we love someone, it’s only natural for us to want to please them, but sometimes you’ve got to stay true to yourself and risk hurting their feelings.
If you’ve not already set yourself some New Year’s Resolutions, it’s certainly not too late to make a change. Spend an afternoon jotting down all the things you’d like to achieve in 2017. Whatever you do, don’t let outside voices impact your decisions!
Have you got your own self care routine yet, Scorpio? If not, make this the week you learn how to care for number one. By practising self care you can improve the health of your mind, body and soul. You’ll also boost the energy levels in your body and transmit more positive vibes to those around you.
If you’ve been procrastinating and avoiding an important task, tick it off your list before the week comes to an end. It might seem boring or challenging, but as soon as you’ve done it, you’ll feel as though a weight has been lifted off your shoulders.
You started the year with the very best intentions but already you’ve come across a setback. Whether you spent way too much money on a night out or you ate your body weight in pizza over the weekend, cut yourself some slack and allow yourself some indulgences. Rather than beating yourself up about it, think ahead. How can you avoid any major slip ups going forward?
It’s often said that it takes 21 days to break a bad habit and replace it with a new one. That’s just three weeks. If you can go three weeks without any setbacks you can do anything!
You’re feeling suspicious this week, Capricorn. Someone in your life is acting strangely and you’re determined to get to the bottom of it. Before making any accusations or saying something you can’t take back, be sure to get the cold hard facts. There’s no need to go snooping around or gossiping amongst your other friends. Instead, say what’s on your mind. Be tactful and avoid going in all guns blazing.
Don’t let other people take advantage of your kindness, Aquarius. You’re more than willing to go the extra mile for your friends and relatives, but this can often result in them expecting too much of you. They know they can always rely on you for a favour, but don’t let them lean on you too often.
If you feel like you’re spoiling people, gently encourage them to stand on their own two feet. It’s good to do things for other people but sometimes you need to put yourself first.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 19TH- MARCH 20TH)
Your stubborn side might make an appearance this week, Pisces. Although it’s good to stand by your guns, flexibility is important too. If you refuse to collaborate and compromise, you’ll only end up doing yourself a disservice while potentially jeopardising friendships too.
You sometimes have a habit of being a bit of a control freak but try to hand the power over to someone else for a change. Standing by and following someone else’s lead may seem daunting, but it could open up a world of opportunities while freeing yourself from unnecessary stress and pressure at the same time.
