ARIES (MARCH 21ST- APRIL 19TH)
If you’ve been thinking about your finances more so than usual in recent weeks, it’s time to crank things up a notch. Ask for overtime at work, open a new bank account, or find a profitable side hustle. Make sure you think about the big picture. Although you’re ambitious, you sometimes have a habit of focussing too much on the present. Remember that your current actions greatly influence how your life will play out in the coming years.
Has your life undergone some drastic changes recently, Taurus? If so, hold onto your hat because it’s unlikely to settle down just yet. Thankfully, you’re an adventurous soul and you’re not content sat in the same place for too long. Whether you’re heading to university, starting a new job, embarking on an exciting creative project or going travelling, your future’s looking bright. Changes may not be immediate but put some focus on preparation and planning this week. Have you got everything you need to make the most of this opportunity?
Other people’s incompetence may make your week more difficult than it needs to be, Gemini, but try not to get too bogged down fixing their mistakes. If you get a chance to tell it like it is, don’t hold back. Fight your corner and make sure any issues that affect you are resolved.
Although you may have a reputation as a carefree individual, you may be harbouring an inner control freak who hates it when things don’t go as planned. All you can do is your best and see how things turn out.
Things may seem as though they’re crashing down around you this week, Cancer, but we have confidence in your ability to keep your cool and regain control. Rather than stressing out at the first sign of a disaster, remind yourself of all the positives in your life and strive for tranquillity. By keeping calm and carrying on, you can instil a sense of peace amongst those around you. Those who are prone to panic may thank you for your wise and harmonious attitude.
If you come across any drama, you may be tempted to walk away and keep out of it but your expertise is needed, Cancer. Hold the fort and get things back on track.
Are you feeling out of your depth, Leo? Whether you’ve bitten off more than you can chew or you’ve found yourself in a situation that doesn’t feel right, it’s important to admit to yourself when things aren’t working out. It’s often said that ‘winners never quit’ but there’s no point flogging a dead horse or putting all your effort into something that deep down you don’t want to do.
If you’ve made a decision you regret or you’re dying to escape from your current circumstances, get the show on the road and make a change! You’ve got the power in your hands.
Your birthday month is finally here and this is your time to shine, Virgo. The remainder of August is going to be incredibly exciting for you and should be ripe with potential.
Your brain is likely to be filled with ideas and you may even find a new found confidence and belief in your abilities. You may have to go the extra mile to achieve what you set out to do; nothing will be handed to you on a plate. But now is the time to think big and go where no Virgo has been before.
Uh oh, are you feeling a little bitter, Libra? Be careful or you might come across as a jealous ex.
Whether you find yourself obsessing over the life of a past partner or you dream of preventing a former boss from achieving success, it’s about time you stopped focussing on the lives of other people. This really isn’t like you. Where is the kind, gentle and peaceful Libra we know and love?
Although it may be difficult, try to step away and move on from the past. Just because the past didn’t turn out the way you wanted it to, doesn’t mean your future can’t be better than you’ve ever imagined.
You may catch the ‘back to school’ bug this week, Scorpio, even if you’re no longer in education. If you feel like making a change and reinventing yourself, this is the perfect time for a fresh start.
As tempted as you may be to focus on physical changes, try to dig a little deeper to identify the things that really matter. There’s certainly no harm in treating yourself to a haircut or new pair of shoes but you may as well update your spiritual and emotional self in the process.
If the world of meditation feels completely foreign to you, don’t make any assumptions. Whether you download a meditation app, start a yoga class or read a book about mindfulness, there are plenty of ways to clear your mind and heal the soul.
Don’t become so obsessed with the finish line that you fail to find joy in the journey. Whether you’re counting down the days until you finish education forever, saving money to buy a house, or waiting for a partner to propose, you’re often guilty of focussing too much on your end goal. Having that ‘final’ destination in mind can be great for motivation but only if you enjoy the adventure along the way.
Make an effort to meet new people and learn all you can, find ways to enjoy yourself on a small budget, and enjoy every second with your partner rather than obsessing over the future.
If you’re single and not-loving-it, shake things up this week and find ways to do things differently. Do you often find yourself missing out on things you really want to do simply because your friends are unavailable? If so, it’s time to be more independent and put yourself first. Go to an art gallery alone or enjoy a concert solo. You never know, you may meet someone special.
Coupled up Capricorns should make sure they aren’t sacrificing any lifelong friendships for love. When you enter a relationship, it’s only natural to see your friends a little less than usual. But make sure you’re not wasting years of friendship for the sake of romance. Don’t throw all those years away.
Receiving criticism is never easy and it takes really thick skin to carry on as normal in the face of negativity and critique. Whether the comments are constructive or not, learn to hold your head high and keep doing what you do best. Think of it this way – you should be able to learn something from every piece of criticism you receive, even if the only thing you learn is that the person dishing out the criticism is not worth listening to!
In other news, there’s a side to you that’s bursting to get out. Have you been keeping one of your deepest passions a secret? Make an effort this week to set the wheels in motion and take a small step towards fulfilling your dreams.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 19TH- MARCH 20TH)
Don’t let embarrassment stand in your way of meeting The One, Pisces. Embrace ‘cheesy’ dating methods and inevitable laughs will lie ahead. Whether you go on a blind date, try speed dating or join an online dating website, you may have to commit to finding someone. If you’re feeling really brave, get yourself signed up to a TV dating show!
Are you already in a relationship? Make sure you and your partner have your priorities in order. Are you spending quality time together or do you pass each other like ships in the night? Time apart is certainly healthy, but only if the time you spend together involves plenty of love, happiness and joy. Switch off the TV, step away from your workload, and focus on each other.
