ARIES (MARCH 21ST- APRIL 19TH)
You have a lot on your plate at the moment, Aries, and you’re struggling to fit everything into your hectic schedule. You’re being pulled in all directions and, in a bid to keep everyone happy and avoid arguments, you’re saying ‘yes’ to as much as possible. Could it be time to say ‘no’ to these people?
Perhaps it’s time for you to call the shots. After all, you’ve reached a defining moment in your life and everything seems to be changing. By taking control of matters yourself, you may be able to mould and shape your future into the one you’ve been dreaming of.
Although this week is super hectic, your organisational skills are coming in handy. You probably already have a notebook to hand but could it be worth downloading some organisational apps to your phone too?
Thought for the week: “Sometimes we need to say ‘no’ so that we have more time to say ‘yes’”
You’ve made a big mistake, Taurus, and you may be feeling red faced and humiliated. You want the ground to swallow you up but it’s time to stand tall and own your mistakes. Honesty is the best policy.
Although you may have landed yourself in hot water and you’re convinced things will never get any better, they will. Trust us. This could be one of those defining moments in your life that you look back on in many years to come. Although you may have some regrets, you’ll feel wiser and more knowledgeable having learnt from your experiences.
Thought for the week: “Mistakes have the power to turn you into something better than you were before”
Whether your parents are getting a little too involved with your house move, a neighbour is sticking their nose into your relationship, or a colleague is watching you like a hawk, you feel as though people are meddling with your life this week.
You don’t want to cause conflict but you’re in desperate need of some independence! It’s time to address these thoughts and feelings. Imagine your mind is a wardrobe in desperate need of organisation – start separating the dresses from the jeans and the handbags from the shoes. It could be worth writing your thoughts down and getting everything in order. Once you’ve done that, gently air your concerns with the meddlers.
There’s no need to go in all guns blazing. Find a way to express your need for space without hurting their feelings or causing unnecessary drama. You may be surprised by the reception your get!
Thought for the week: ”Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind”
Is someone trying to take advantage of your kindness and creativity, Cancer? Whether someone’s asked you to work for free or take the blame for something that isn’t your responsibility, don’t go out of your way to help someone who won’t go the extra mile for you too.
In other news, you may be suffering from a serious lack of get-up-and-go. It’s time to stop side stepping and move forward with your life. Have you been putting off something important? Procrastination doesn’t suit you, Cancer. You’re at your best when you’re grabbing the bull by the horns and taking the opportunities life throws at you.
Thought for the week: “The best way to get something done is to begin”
There’s a risk you might hurt someone’s feelings this week, Leo. A natural born leader, you can sometimes come across as arrogant and controlling. Your confidence is one of your greatest assets but don’t let that become overshadowed with nastiness or negativity. Be gentle with the new person at work and don’t be too hard on those who make mistakes. You make mistakes too, remember?
Patience should be your primary focus this week and every time you find yourself getting wound up or losing your temper, remind yourself of the importance of tolerance and restraint.
Thought for the week: “Have patience. All things are difficult before they become easy”
You often play the role of the ‘mother’ in your circle of friends but in the coming weeks a new face might enter the picture and put your role into question. Whether they look like you, have the same interests, or you share mannerisms, the resemblance is uncanny. Rather than feeling jealous or worrying about them stealing your crown, think of this as a way to collaborate. If you respect one another you may gain a lifelong friend.
When you’re not fretting about being knocked from your position of power and wisdom, take some time out to pamper yourself. Get your hair done, buy a new outfit, or simply take a long bath with some sweet smelling bubbles.
Thought for the week: “It’s amazing what we can accomplish when we’re in it together”
Are you okay, Libra? You look like you’ve seen a ghost! Something funny’s been going on and even though you may be reluctant to acknowledge the presence of spirits, you feel like recent experiences are hard to ignore. Don’t let the possibility of spirits or angels scare you. Instead, think of this encounter as a blessing from an old friend or relative.
When you’re not thinking about spirits or the afterlife, you’re pondering career matters. Maybe you’re feeling a little restless in your current job and wondering whether it’s time for a change. Before taking the leap and embarking on a lengthy job hunt, question whether your desire for adventure can be fulfilled at your current company. Are there any smaller changes you can implement to make things a little more exciting? Perseverance could really pay off.
Thought for the week: “Perseverance is stubbornness with a purpose”
You’re going against the grain, Scorpio, and some people might be questioning your actions. You may face some criticism but it’s nothing you can’t handle. Stand your ground and refuse to give into the demands of others. After all, you know best!
There’s a risk you might have problems with technology this week. A combination of outside forces and your own clumsiness could see your devices failing to operate as effectively as normal. Change your passwords, save your work as you go along, and don’t leave anything until the last minute.
Thought for the week: “When you say ‘yes’ to others, make sure you’re not saying ‘no’ to yourself”
No matter how hard you try to help, people keep throwing it back in your face! Whether you’re offering to help a relative move into a new place or going out of your way to help a colleague complete a new project, the recipient of your kindness just doesn’t seem grateful.
They could do with being a little more tactful but don’t be offended by their response. Perhaps the people you’re trying to help are fiercely independent creatures who would rather go it alone. Instead of smothering them with your advice and support, step aside and wait for them to come to you.
Thought for the week: “We don’t learn from talking; we learn from listening”
You’re a problem-solver by nature and thrive in situations where you can take charge and use your organisational skills to your advantage.
If you’ve been putting in extra hours at work lately, you may be wondering why someone else is getting all the credit. They’re willingly accepting it too. The cheek of it! Rather than shouting out and singing your own praises, bite your tongue until the time is right. Trust us; you’ll know when.
Thought for the week: “It’s better to bite your tongue than eat your words”
Something’s annoying you, Aquarius. Whether a friend is being reckless with the feelings of others or they’re doing something downright dangerous, you feel compelled to speak up. We’d usually suggest you avoid judging others for their actions, but there comes a time when it’s necessary to take a friend aside and have a few words.
Avoid making any accusations and instead, be sympathetic. Rather than doing all the talking, do the listening. It may be the case that your friend has some secrets they’ve been desperate to get off their chest. With your help they may be able to get back on track.
Thought for the week: “One of the most sincere forms of respect is actually listening to what another has to say”
PISCES (FEBRUARY 19TH- MARCH 20TH)
Have you been feeling a little lonely lately, Pisces? Whether you’re missing a former partner or you’ve fallen out of touch with old friends, it’s time to take matters into your own hands and gain control of your destiny once more.
Social media may seem like a great cure for your loneliness but it may actually make things worse. The last thing you need to see is old friends spending time together without you. And you certainly don’t need to waste hours looking through your ex-partner’s photos. It’s never going to be a good idea. Get out into the real world and meet new people. Start a new hobby. Embrace nature. Call a family member. We’re confident that by staying active and keeping busy you can overcome this lonely period.
Thought for the week: “A season of loneliness is when the caterpillar gets its wings”
