Here’s what the ancient Tarot cards have to say about your Sun sign for this week:
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
A pattern repeats itself. You find yourself in a similar situation, reacting the way you once did or interacting with someone in the same way you did before. Point is, not to repeat the mistakes from the past but to learn from them this time around. Teams may have to contend with a dishonest individual or minor setbacks. Love life shows improvement as you find yourself attracted to someone who feels familiar or reminds you of someone you used to know. Money that was owed to you will be returned after a few reminders. Be mindful about your health.
Taurus (Apr 20- May 20)
A lot can be accomplished in the days ahead if you stay focussed on the tasks at hand. You may find yourself clearing a lot of paperwork or busy with forms and applications and with your diligence, deadlines will be met. At home too, there’s a mood to declutter and organise your belongings and you may plan some repairs and renovations in the domestic front. A good week to clear up pending chores and catch up on all the calls you’ve been meaning to for a while. Travel plans may get put on hold. And if you were waiting for someone to call, they will, when you least expect it!
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
You may be a little irritable and impatient this week. So watch out for sudden explosive bouts or minor altercations with people at work and even at home. If there’s anything you can’t tolerate, it’s excuses and you may give a co-worker a piece of your mind. Just be careful with your words and try and let off the steam nonviolently. Money matters pick up for self-employed Geminis. And a new product or service brings in a surprising response. Health matters show recovery, but you will need to be patient with the healing process.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Time to be independent. Do what you want to do. And stop expecting others to help or understand you for the time being. The cards indicate a time for you to assert your leadership skills, take charge and feel your own power. A woman may try to undermine your abilities or be unnecessarily critical of your achievements. Ignore and do what needs to be done. Singles may choose to stay free a lot longer, or you may refuse the attention of someone who’s keen on you. Even in relationships, you may demand a little space, and that’s okay. Financially a period of building wealth begins, but first you will need to focus on the planning.
Leo (July 23- Aug 22)
It’s all about service and being useful. For the time being, the Universe expects you to forget your own needs and focus on helping and supporting those around you. Plans that are made which are for the larger benefit will bring you good karma and good fortune. Voluntary activities or charity work brings blessings. The more you see how connected you are with those around you, the more harmony there will be in your relationships. A special someone begins to come a little closer to you as trust is strengthened. A wonderful period to express feelings and yourself through the creative arts begins. Health matters show steady progress.
Virgo (Aug 23- Sept 22)
The more peace there is within you, the more peace there will be around you. People will sense your ease and warm up to you instantly. Relationships may demand that you become more of an active listener. And you may find yourself playing the mentor or guide to a younger soul who could learn from your wisdom. Family get-togethers and social occasions see you at your charming best. Releasing resentment or a grudge frees you once and for all. Money matters show a sense of stability and you may plan your next large purchase soon or think of moving to a new home.
Libra (Sept 23- Oct 22)
People may sense your dissatisfaction and distance themselves from you. Or you may find yourself being too critical of others and in the process, find yourself feeling left out. Time for tolerance and time for self-reflection. If the stress levels have been building up, find peaceful ways to release them. If it all gets too much, perhaps it’s time for a short break or a change of pace or strategy when it comes to work. There may be minor conflicts at home with loved ones who need you to be more forgiving of their follies. Businesses may go slow and require an overhaul. What can you do differently?
Scorpio (Oct 23- Nov21)
Be as practical as you can possibly be. Time to get to work and be productive. A lot may be expected from you in the days ahead, so the more organised you are now, the smoother the outcome. A little self-discipline may be required when it comes to diet and exercise. Things turn out well when you push yourself and work towards solving problems with a cool mind. An older woman may give you some time-tested advice. Or you find yourself turning to the women in your life for some much-needed motivation and direction. Expenses may go up, but in the long run, it will be worth it.
Sagittarius (Nov 22- Dec 21)
Harvest time. All your hard work and patience begin to pay off. Take your product to the market. Business and material matters bring returns. People pay attention to what you have to say. And you climb up the ranks in the company. Now is not the time to listen to the voices of self-doubt, but to move forward with certainty. Abundance surrounds you and more’s coming. Unexpected monetary gains may be in the horizon. And all business trips are favoured. Family matters run smoothly as you sort out a loved one’s problem. Just watch out for overindulgence in food and drink.
Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan19)
Time to take a personal inventory. Look at your house, can you make it more comfortable? Review your diet? Does it need adjustments. Analyse your relationships and responsibilities. And clear any dues you owe to others. A period of karmic balance and adjustments has begun and whatever you do now will bear fruit or have effects in the long term. Creative Capricornians may find themselves busy with ideas or in meetings to discuss upcoming projects. Plans to move home, upgrade your car or mobile phone may be finalised. The more positive changes you bring in now, the more your future self will thank you later.
Aquarius (Jan 20- Feb 18)
Your ambitious side returns with a bang. And you may find yourself re-invigorated and ready to go. A period of advancement begins for Aquarians, so roll up your sleeves and have your goals and targets in place. Legal and financial negotiations run smoothly as you find yourself becoming a lot more tolerant and patient towards the differences. Someone is forgiven, and you find yourself moving into a place of peace. Maintaining a flexible approach to your relationships helps deepen bonds of love. Health matters show steady progress.
Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20)
You may feel the need for a makeover or some change in your life. Perhaps it’s the way you look or dress. Or your home. Whatever it is, you no longer want to stick to the normal and boring, and may be ready to take a few calculated risks as well. Advertising and promotion of products and services starts bringing in the results you desire. Or you could find yourself drawn to another career or industry altogether. Single Pisceans may date people who are different from the rest. Just make sure to take out some quiet time, to reflect, meditate and build up your energy for a super busy phase ahead.
