Here’s what the ancient Tarot cards have to say about your Sun sign for this week:
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
A disaster is averted. The worst is over. And things slowly started looking up. Stay hopeful and don’t believe your negative thoughts. Petty people may try to bring you down with their spite, but it’s up to you to rise above their behaviour. Take the high road and good things come your way. A sudden invitation or offer may lift your spirits. And if you’ve been ailing, recovery is assured. Spirituality and meditation may draw you in and you could find yourself discovering peace within yourself you never knew existed.
Taurus (Apr 20- May 20)
Time to let the past go. Focus on the present moment and all the blessings it brings. Now is not the time to regret, but hope. Work matters may feel frustrating as you feel you’re plodding on with little or no reward in sight. Release the need for approval. And stop expecting those who do not see your value to suddenly recognise your worth. You may consider a new job or launching your own setup or if in business, a new set of terms with your business partners. A good week to declutter at home and release unpleasant memories. Out with the old and the stale, and in with the new.
Gemini (May21- June 20)
Perhaps you don’t feel like socialising much. Or just want some quiet time to think and be by yourself. A new project at work may need some research and brainstorming. Or you could find yourself planning something for the long term. A demanding woman may need special handling and you may have to control your impulses to lash out at her. Money-wise there are steady gains, but that’s really not what makes you happy, is it? How about rediscovering an old passion or learning a new skill? Time spent introspecting will bring deep insights.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
A sudden energy shift could find you on top of the world. Perhaps it’s a happy new vibe, or perhaps you’re falling in love. Enjoy the good feelings. And use this energy to create something new for yourself. How do you envisage your life? What would you like to do to make things better? Singles could find themselves falling head over heels for someone new. Or the birth of a new child evokes deep feelings of joy you haven’t experienced in a long time. Just make sure you don’t overdo things. Everything in moderation, dear Cancerian and this phase should work out beautifully!
Leo (July 23- Aug 22)
Step up. Make a bold move. Show them who’s the real boss. The cards urge you to tap into your inner fire and get things going. If things have been slack or slow, it’s up to you to do something about it. If someone’s not doing their job right.or is being unnecessarily difficult. It’s only you who can point things out and make sure they are on track again. A good phase begins for self-employed Leos. And if you’ve been considering launching something from home, go for it. Relationships may have their share of arguments as you tend to put your point across a little forcefully. Money matters show promise.
Virgo (Aug 23- Sept 22)
Embrace your uniqueness. Acknowledge the gifts you’ve been born with. And realise you’re far stronger than you think. The more self-assured and focused you are, the more you can get done. People notice that you mean business and will cooperate with you. A long-standing project finally comes to a close. At the home front, you could start planning a move or thinking about the education goals of a young one. Don’t worry so much about the finances, things are looking better. Exercise and time spent outdoors will clear up your mind and bring forth solutions.
Libra (Sept 23- Oct 22)
Abundance surrounds you. And you discover you have everything you need right now. Happiness comes from within and the more grateful you become, the more you attract good things your way. Good news could be around the corner. Or a celebration may be in store. Time to let your hair down and just enjoy yourself. Singles may choose the one to marry and wedding bells may ring in this phase. If you’ve made some changes to your health and fitness regime, you should soon start reaping the benefits of your hard work, if you haven’t begun yet, how about starting now?
Scorpio (Oct 23- Nov21)
Things may sound good on paper or a promise may appear too good to be true. But is this really what you want. A week to re-evaluate your choices and focus on your individual goals if you want to get back that feeling of inner security Seeking too much security and stability may feel like a trap. And the cards urge you to take a few risks. Domestic repairs may seem too much, or you could find yourself spending far more than you originally thought. A little budgeting should bring things back in control. Just be sure to watch the way you speak with your loved ones. Remember it’s not what you say but how you come across that makes all the difference.
Saggitarius (Nov 22- Dec 21)
It’s all about self-reliance isn’t it? And with each passing day, you may find yourself planning on how you could be more independent. Don’t be surprised if you suddenly find your wish list growing as well. Just remember, our material needs will never be satisfied so it’s best to maintain a balance where our wants are concerned. At work, you may be forced to work more with the team even though you won’t feel like it. You may find yourself interacting with diverse groups or cooperating with a bunch of people who may be drastically different from you. Remember to compromise a little, and focus on group harmony. Because that’s the only way the job will be done. Financially a week to focus on getting back all that was owed to you. Persistence will bring positive news your way.
Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan19)
You may feel like rebelling. There may be pressure on you to do things in a certain way by others and also perhaps by yourself to conform, and listen, when somewhere deep within, you’re unwilling to change, listen or follow. Even the environment feels volatile and explosive. Energies repressed for too long may be suddenly released. Some sort of awakening is happening, perhaps through a new idea, new insight, or a sudden realization about either your relationship or with your work. You know you can’t continue this way but only you can bring in the change you seek. Relief comes by way of spending time with good friends who love you unconditionally.
Aquarius (Jan 20- Feb 18)
Why are you allowing the small things to stress you out? The card of anxiety, stress and irritation comes as a reminder that before any chapter begins in our life, we have to go through periods of turmoil and volatility. Stay calm no matter what, and find ways to relax consciously. A new beginning is at hand, but first, you have to find the peace within. People may feel annoying both at the workplace and at home. Or you may feel frustrated at your low energy levels that hold you back from doing all the things on your to-do list. Work on boosting your health and this phase shall pass.
Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20)
Multi-tasking, balancing priorities, and juggling between work and home are the keywords for this phase. Expect busy days where you may not even get time to pause and reflect. Go with the flow and enjoy the accelerated energy that’s ahead of you. Be mindful about getting enough rest though as it could take a toll on your energy levels. And do devote enough time and attention to those who love you. An online conversation could turn into something special.
