ARIES (MARCH 21ST- APRIL 19TH)
An acquaintance may tell you a story you struggle to sympathise with this week, but try to show a little compassion. You’re not usually a judgemental soul but you can’t help but place the blame on the person telling you the story. We’re all human and even you’re prone to mistakes, so rather than making assumptions, practise being understanding and sympathetic. Your willingness to listen could bring you countless good karma in the future.
Take a break from social media if you can, Taurus. Whether you have a one day digital detox or a week long social siesta, you’ll be amazed at how a tech timeout can transform your life. With all this free time you now have, try to focus on enjoying those small yet meaningful moments that make life extra special.
A passionate conversation with someone interesting could lift your mood by the time the weekend comes around.
A week of romance may lie ahead if you’re ready for it, Gemini. From cloudspotting to stargazing, be sure to get outside and embrace the natural world. Life’s too short to spend it cooped up indoors.
You may rediscover an old band or musician from your youth in the coming days. Prepare for a tidal wave of memories – both good and bad – to come flooding your way. This may be a good time to reconnect with an old friend from your past, but only if you left things on relatively good terms.
Be sure to keep your promises, Cancer. A friend may put you under pressure to spill someone else’s secret, but you’ll only end up regretting it afterwards. Keep schtum and stay true to your word. Failure to keep this secret will see you having to deal with the inevitable fallout that lies ahead.
A late night movie marathon could be just the thing you need this weekend. The question is, do you want to experience this alone or with someone special?
If you’re currently single, a long term friendship could blossom into something more in the days ahead. Try not to rush into anything, though. Sudden changes could cause turmoil if you’re not careful, particularly with the Mercury Retrograde underway.
A mysterious stranger may inspire you to do things differently this week, but again, take things one step at a time.
Spending quality time with a relative could result in a fresh perspective, Virgo. You may see a new side to this person and their alter ego could open up some exciting new opportunities for you.
A good friend may offer you support in the coming days. Express your gratitude and start thinking about how you can return the favour. Your gesture doesn’t have to be grand or expensive. Cooking them a delicious meal or treating them to a trip to the cinema ought to do the trick.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 23RD- OCTOBER 22ND)
Avoid committing to something you may later regret, Libra. Whether it’s a drastic career change or a relationship with someone you’re not sure about, don’t be afraid to dip your toes in the water and postpone any life-changing responsibilities for now.
Nevertheless, if you’re certain about your feelings or your intuition is telling you to take the leap, it’s not worth missing out on a once-in-a-lifetime-opportunity.
Show your vulnerable side, Scorpio, no matter how many people try to make you toughen up. If you’re struggling at work or you’re scared about a new responsibility, be open about your feelings. You never know, those around you may be feeling out of their depth too.
Someone with a great sense of humour could give you the belly laughs you’re in desperate need of. This person might not necessarily be someone you know already. A chance encounter with someone you’ll never meet again could be just the thing to lift your spirits.
Treat yourself to something you wish other people would buy you, Sagittarius. Whether you want a beautiful piece of jewellery, a bunch of flowers or a new fragrance, shower yourself in the gifts you crave.
This week is all about independence and putting yourself first. Don’t wait around for someone else to help you get to your destination. You can do just fine by yourself!
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 22ND- JANUARY 19TH)
Let your hair down and enjoy a night of dancing, Capricorn. Whether you head over to a nightclub with your friends or dance around the living room in your PJs, shake your worries away and have a good time.
Do you keep a diary, Capricorn? If not, now could be a good time to start. You have a lot of secrets to share but until you’re sure you can trust your friends to keep them, focus on spilling them out onto the pages of your notebook.
Is it time to be a little bit more organised, Aquarius? From organising your bank statements and payslips into neat and tidy folders to rearranging your wardrobe, set some time aside to get everything in order.
Making an effort to be more organised could also help if you’re unsure what route to take in your career or love life. Once you gain some clarity, you’ll be ready and raring to go, surrounded by all the physical and emotional tools you need.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 19TH- MARCH 20TH)
Try to stay impartial this week, Pisces. Has the Mercury Retrograde been causing havoc on your social circle? If everyone around you is squabbling, taking a step back and keeping your distance could work wonders. Not only could this help you avoid stress, it may also help to diffuse the situation in the process.
