Here’s what the ancient Tarot cards have to say about your Sun sign for this week:
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
Energies have only just shifted in your favour, but to expect things to change instantly would be disastrous. Take small steps in the direction you wish to move in. Any impatience you show now may lead to disaster. You may start to sense the potential in something new, or notice how things are gradually coming together so don’t rush it. A good week to rethink your plans and make minor adjustments. A relationship that showed a lot of attraction initially may turn stale. Or you find that you’re too preoccupied with other things. Just go with the flow for now, and don’t force anything. Health matters show tiredness that can be easily rectified with a change in diet or lifestyle.
Taurus (Apr 20- May 20)
Time for a reality check and a wake-up call. Things may not be quite the way you see them. Or you discover the truth about certain people. At work, clarity emerges after a phase of confusion. Someone may be playing a power game or harbour a hidden agenda. Avoid taking risks and be a little discreet with the amount you reveal to others. Financially a good phase begins and you may be in a position to support a good cause or help a friend who’s struggling. Just be careful not to overdo things in matters of health.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
You’re at the top again. Perhaps you demonstrate your brilliance at work. Or receive accolades for all your hard work. It’s clear now that no one can outdo you when it comes to who you are and what you do. At work, your leadership skills bring out the best in the team. There may be a merger or alliance in the near future. And if self-employed, you may receive offers to expand your influence. Single Geminis may even encounter a workplace romance. Health matters look good. And travel plans run smoothly.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Perhaps you’re feeling as if you’re treated unfairly. Or someone excludes you from an invite. A much deserved promotion may be delayed. Don’t allow it to get to you. Let go of resentment and allow yourself to move to a space of acceptance and calm. Even at home, someone’s angry outbursts don’t need a reaction from you. Some battles are just not worth the time or energy. Businesses and consultancies pick up the pace and you may find yourself refusing clients or asking for more time as the workload picks up pace. Plans to move home or renovate your living space are finalised. Remember to focus on what truly matters. Anything that takes away peace from you just isn’t worth it.
Leo (July 23- Aug 22)
Things will get better with time and don’t believe a stressful moment could mean more pain ahead. A misunderstanding is cleared. Or you decide to forgive someone. At work, there may be a temporary lull or a lot of planning but no action right away. Bide your time before you ask for a raise. Job seekers may need to wait a little longer for things to shift in their favour. Socially this is the phase to be out and about as new friendships and associations bring much-needed excitement into your life. A good week to start anew.
Virgo (Aug 23- Sept 22)
Watch your step. Mind your words. Unfiltered moments could lead to some angry and unpleasant consequences which could have been easily avoided. On the bright side, your excellent communication skills could win over your clients and charm your audience with the impact of your words. A good week to let go of old habits and addictions. You have the willpower, you only need to make a decision. On the romantic side, an online connection could go real-time and you may be in for a little surprise.
Libra (Sept 23- Oct 22)
Something’s changed for the better and you seem to be ready for some major life changes in the months ahead. Could be relocation, or marriage, or a new job in a new city. The cards urge you to use this time to set down long-term goals and slowly start working towards them. Even in relationships, it’s best to be straightforward with your loved ones. Some people don’t get hints and you will need to spell out your expectations with them a little more clearly. Open communication, heart to heart chats are favoured in the weeks ahead. Air your grievances and spell out what you feel. Money matters run well as long as you stay within your budget.
Scorpio (Oct 23- Nov21)
How long will you carry your baggage for? Time to let go of old memories and start afresh. Replaying certain scenes, retelling the story will only make you feel more alone. A new version of you can only emerge when you release the old and start afresh. Moneywise, time to control the urge to splurge a little and do some long-term planning. A little restraint goes a long way. Young women may be a cause for concern but again, when we let go of the uncontrollable, things start to move in the right direction. Your health may need you to be a little more mindful now, so do watch your eating and drinking
Sagittarius (Nov 22- Dec 21)
Give your mind a rest. All that overthinking may take a toll. Detox, detach and hydrate. Spend more time outdoors if possible. And remember that what is meant to be will find a way back into our lives. If someone special isn’t picking up the phone, disconnect. If the results of the second round of the important interview haven’t been declared, step back for a while. Things can work out in your favour, but only after a little more patience. A soulmate may seek you out for a while. Will you be able to recognize him or her?
Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan19)
Things have a way of getting smoother if we just let them be. You find yourself in a better place mentally, professionally and even in your personal life. The storm has passed and now is the time to reorganise, redo and repair any damage. Demanding clients and bosses may make work feel tiring but somewhere, without even realising it you’re being considered for a higher role and greater responsibility. Travel plans may be delayed for some time, but that doesn’t mean you aren’t going. Relationships suffer when you get too possessive over your special someone. Learn to let go a little. What is meant for you will always come back to you.
Aquarius (Jan 20- Feb 18)
A sigh of relief. A crisis gets averted. A misunderstanding is cleared. Pent up stress finds release. You start making progress, and just know that the results will come. Family members may need a little extra attention, especially the men and the boys. Watch out for overindulgence in the good stuff. Moderation is the key. Singles may find themselves preferring to stay uncommitted for a while. And married couples reach a stage of mutual harmony and understanding, even if it’s peaceful till the next argument, the happy vibe will be worth it. Mail brings a pleasant surprise.
Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20)
A new source of income, a new job opportunity opens up or a passion turns into a business idea. The more open-minded you are the brighter the future looks. A good phase begins to organise and sort out your paperwork, a pending bank or insurance matter may need your immediate attention. Family brings joy but also a different share of demands and you may find yourself counselling a troubled heart. The key to harmony is a sense of adaptability and adjustments especially when it comes to a special someone. Your heart is in the right place dear Piscean, the more love you give the more you will receive.
