ARIES (MARCH 21ST- APRIL 19TH)
Past disappointments will help you grow this week, Aries. Although other people’s failings and weaknesses may have caused you problems in the past, they’ll now help to toughen you up and encourage you to embrace your own independence. There’s no point in relying on others when you can get the job done yourself!
Don’t let go of your softer side completely though, Aries. Friendship, solidarity and collaboration play an important role in our lives and there’s no point distancing ourselves from others completely.
Is someone expecting you to return the favour, Taurus? A friend who helped you out in the past may be looking for your support. Although you’re a loyal friend and you pride yourself on being trustworthy, there may be times where you need to draw a line. If your friend is expecting too much of you or is asking you to do something you don’t agree with, don’t be afraid to put your foot down and say no. Your morals and integrity are what makes you so special!
Are you terrified of change, Gemini? Unfortunately, it’s an unavoidable part of life. Being flexible and open to change helps us to progress and grow – even if it may seem scary at first.
Remind yourself that when one door closes, another one opens. Letting things go may seem hard but by doing so, you make way for something even bigger and better.
Someone from your past might try to re-enter your life this week. Little do they know that you’re a changed person with a stronger sense of self-esteem than ever before. You may have forgiven them for what they did but you certainly haven’t forgotten. Could this be the perfect time to execute the classic “New phone. Who’s this?” line. Make it your mission to surround yourself with positive people who lift you up rather than tear you down.
Have you recently been contemplating cutting someone out of your life? If so, there may be something holding you back. Although there may be some positive aspects of your relationship with this person, if they cause more harm than good, it could be time to distance yourself. Try not to worry too much about what you’re losing. You were an amazing person before they came into your life and you’ll continue to be amazing without them.
Is someone trying to impress you with their intelligence? Don’t let their perceived wisdom fool you into thinking they’ve got their act together. They may seem like a clever individual on the surface but behind the scenes, they might be making the very same mistakes you criticise yourself for. We’re all human and although we might act like we know what we’re doing, we’re all wandering through life as clueless as the next person.
A person from your past who took advantage of you long ago may be searching for forgiveness in the coming days. Although they may tell you that they’ve changed and are keen for a fresh start with you, it’s hard to undo the hurt they caused in the past. Before welcoming them back into your life and putting the past behind you, think about how your life has been since they left. If you’ve been doing just fine without them, it may be wise to keep them at arm’s length.
Are you constantly striving for approval from someone who doesn’t give you the time of day? Don’t take their cold behaviour personally. Chances are they have their own problems that need to be overcome before they let you into their life.
Whether you’re single or in a relationship, learn to love your flaws this week, Scorpio. Being your own best friend can transform your life. Your self esteem will shoot through the roof, you’ll earn respect from others and you’ll skip through life with a newfound sense of self belief and optimism.
Love yourself and don’t bother waiting for other people to agree, Sagittarius. Although you’re usually a fairly confident person, you sometimes take criticism from others to heart. When someone tells you you’re wrong, you’re more likely to second guess yourself than you are to question this person’s judgements. Stand up for yourself!
It’s wise to take other people’s opinions on board and maintain a balanced outlook on life, but just because someone disagrees with you doesn’t make them right. Stick by your guns this week and don’t back down.
Is someone constantly telling you your standards are too high? Ignore them. You’re the only one who can determine what you deserve and your determination to surround yourself with people who are right for you is really admirable.
Often, we overlook other people’s weaknesses and mistakes in fear of ending up alone. From friends to partners, many of us are guilty of accepting way less than we deserve. Your standards are what make you special and strong. Besides, if someone’s always telling you your standards are too high, perhaps their standards are too low!
Are you waiting for that special someone to come along, Aquarius? If so, focus on being your own Number One before you make space for another person. This doesn’t mean you need to delete your dating apps or stop chatting to good looking people in bars. It simply means you should make yourself your main priority.
Already in a relationship? Be careful not to get stuck in a rut. It’s great that you’re both comfortable around one another but it’s wise to question whether you’ve fallen into a bit of a dull routine. If you’re dying for some adventure, this could be the perfect time to book an exciting weekend away.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 19TH- MARCH 20TH)
Have you recently been through a bad breakup or a friendship fall out? If you’re now questioning your sense of identity, there’s nothing stopping you from finding it! Use your new found freedom to immerse yourself in hobbies you love and activities you’ve not yet given yourself chance to try. Once you’ve discovered who you really are, you’ll be able to strengthen existing relationships and surround yourself with people who encourage you to be your own person.
