ARIES (MARCH 21ST- APRIL 19TH)
Are you feeling anxious, Aries? If you have a big event in the pipeline, whether that’s a job interview, date with someone special or even a TV appearance, feeling nervous is only natural. Preparation and forward planning is important but avoid playing the worst case scenarios in your head over and over again. This attitude will only get you worked up and stressed out. Instead, picture the best case scenario. Picture yourself in the job of your dreams, moving in with The One, or becoming a national treasure after your TV appearance. There’s nothing wrong with being a dreamer and by picturing success rather than failure you can increase your confidence and potential.
Don’t be too hard on yourself, Taurus. You sometimes have a habit of beating yourself up over things that are either no big deal or not your fault. If you’re not careful, all this negativity could start rubbing off on those around you. Chances are, the very things you criticise yourself for are the things no one else notices. If you keep highlighting your weaknesses and perceived flaws, others may soon start to believe you. Have confidence, Taurus, and don’t let self-deprecation prevent you from letting your true self shine through.
Keep your cards close to your chest this week, Gemini. You have information that other people want but by disclosing your secrets, you could end up at a significant disadvantage. Perhaps you have a business idea and someone is offering to help you. Or maybe you have heard some gossip about someone important and you’re being nagged to spill the beans. Before handing over any information, ask yourself whether you can really trust this person.
If you’ve been working hard to repair a broken relationship, whether that’s with a friend, former partner, or relative, your kindness and devotion may start to pay off in the coming days.
Do you feel like you’ve been carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders? If so, book some time off work and focus 100% on yourself. Whether you organise a weekend away or simply lock yourself indoors with all the books you haven’t yet found time to read, now’s a good time to relax and enjoy yourself.
This could be an ideal opportunity to embrace your spiritual side if you haven’t already. Learn about the world of Tarot reading or use healing crystals to restore peace and tranquillity in your life.
A song that you’ve not heard in many years might result in a flood of old memories coming back to you. Good or bad, these memories serve a purpose and so it’s important to think carefully about how you can use your past to better your future.
These memories might inspire you to track down an old friend or even avoid a current one. Be brave and take the leap. Although you may fear rejection or change, these are vital in order to progress through life.
In the coming weeks you might bump into a stranger who reminds you of someone you’ve loved and lost. The resemblance won’t necessarily be physical. Instead, this person might have similar traits to the person you once knew so well.
Although this encounter might bring you joy and fill you with nostalgia, remind yourself that this is not the same person. Don’t let your curiosity get the best of you and avoid coming on too strong. Sure, you may want to embark on a friendship or romance but this person might not feel the same. Some things are better off a mystery.
If you’re a single Libra, you may be getting tired of your friends’ and family members’ attempts to find you the perfect partner. Although all this attention may cause embarrassment, if you do want to find someone special, don’t turn down their offers of help. You never know, romance could blossom with a mutual friend.
When making non-romantic plans this week, be sure to step out of your comfort zone and do something a little different. If you always meet up with a friend in your local cafe or your favourite bar, go a little further afield and broaden your horizons. Variety is just as important in platonic relationships as it is in romantic ones.
You sometimes have a habit of assuming the grass is greener on the other side, Scorpio. It doesn’t matter how perfect other people’s lives look from the outside, chances are they suffer the same ups and downs that you do.
Practise gratitude and be grateful for everything you’ve already achieved in your life. Look around you and appreciate your friends, family, home and life. Things might not be perfect, but at least you’re living and breathing.
Don’t let the speediness of the coming week catch you off guard. You’ll be expected to be agile, on your toes and ready to take on any challenge. Hopefully you aren’t too drowsy from the slow pace of recent weeks. Things may have fallen into a predictable routine recently but that’s all set to change in the next few days. By the time the weekend comes around, you’re likely to have adjusted to this crazy new lifestyle.
If you’re single, it may be wise to put your love life on the backburner over the next few weeks and focus on work and personal progression instead.
If you have a tendency to be a little passive and usually enjoy taking things as they come, now’s the time to practice your assertiveness, Capricorn. Avoid using ‘softeners’ when asking people to do things or stating your opinion.
By softening your sentences with ‘just’ or ‘I think’ you may come across as someone who lacks confidence and self belief. How can you convince others when you can’t convince yourself? Stop second guessing yourself, Capricorn.
We’ve all been there. You make plans to meet up with a friend but the two of you keep cancelling on each other, despite the best intentions. If you’re serious about keeping in touch, it’s time to make one another a priority. No one in particular is at fault here and it seems like you both just need to get your lives in order and be a little more organised. Put their name in your diary and don’t cancel on them under any circumstances. Well, unless it’s an emergency, of course.
If you’ve been feeling a little sluggish recently, make a promise to yourself that you’ll embark on a new exercise routine. It’s surprising just how much energy exercise can bless us with.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 19TH- MARCH 20TH)
August is likely to be incredibly fruitful in terms of creative projects. You may find yourself overwhelmed with exciting opportunities. If you’re stuck in a non-creative job that doesn’t make you happy, you might decide to book a couple of days off so that you can focus on more fun and innovative things.
In your spare time, nurture a passion that you once had but may have neglected in recent years. It can be something as simple as going for long walks in the countryside to something as crazy as abseiling. Embark on a new adventure, Pisces.
