Here’s what the ancient Tarot cards have to say about your Sun sign for this week:
Aries (Mar 21- Apr 19)
Time to network and time to upgrade. Discover something you want to learn. A new skill could increase your earnings and add value in the market place. And if wondering about job changes, this could be the start of a lucky phase where you clinch that dream job. Money matters show steady improvement as you slowly begin to align yourself with your goals. On the personal front, be careful not to react too harshly with others. You may feel edgy and impatient with a family member and do pause before you lash out. Redirect the energy elsewhere, or better still, non violently.
Taurus (Apr 20- May 20)
Moderation is the key to success. Too much of a good thing may not be so good after all. Control your tendency to overdo things and overthink. Make sure you’re getting enough time outdoors and do watch your portion sizes while eating. Someone may let you down as you realise they’ve forgotten all about the times you helped them. They have moved on and it’s time you did as well. Ideas may come up for collaborative work and partnerships which could work out to be quite lucrative if executed well.
Gemini (May 21- June 20)
After a dull spell, good things finally come your way. You may have learnt a valuable life lesson about people. Or reached a conclusion with an issue in recent weeks. It’s all past now. Things look up a little. And you may find yourself becoming your old charming self again, winning friends and opportunities. At work, there will be one meeting after the other, and in your social life, expect some exciting invitations, or you may choose to host a party. Whatever it is, make sure you have some fun. You do deserve it!
Cancer (June 21- July 22)
Open your mind to other people’s views, try out different approaches and do not be afraid of any new opportunity that comes your way. Risk is sometimes necessary for greater gains in the long term and the cards suggest that whatever you do in your professional and personal life will reward you in the long run. Financially, you may be tempted to speculate in the stock market or invest in an upcoming business or property. Listen to your instincts, the cards say. Single Cancerians may meet prospective suitors but may shy away from a lasting commitment in the last moment. Healthwise, take care of your respiratory system and don’t ignore a nagging cough or cold for too long.
Leo (July 23- Aug 22)
You are determined to get your way and no one can stop you. You may find yourself changing your policy, strategy or even yourself in your quest to win. A good phase for forging alliances and enlisting the support of influential people, this card indicates victory over challenges that may arise in your professional and personal life. Use caution when traveling and slow down while on the road. And do keep an eye out for stress-related ailments. Work on expressing your feelings instead of relying on pure logic alone to sort out disagreements with a family member or friend.
Virgo (Aug 23- Sept 22)
Roll up your sleeves and also keep a lookout for a sudden opportunity. Your hard work will not go unnoticed, and there is a chance of success in the weeks ahead through deliberate effort on your part and unexpected opportunities. An unpleasant work or personal situation will come to an end and you may find yourself heaving a sigh of relief at the prospect of beginning afresh. Health wise make sure you go for regular checkups to the dentist and watch your knees. Singles may find the arrival of an old flame interested in rekindling a relationship, and you may just find things begin to get better again in personal matters. The more you learn to relax in the present moment, the better the vibe.
Libra (Sept 23- Oct 22)
It’s time to push yourself towards your goals a little harder. And step out of the comfort zone. You may meet a benefactor or someone who truly believes in you and who you can rely on to take you further professionally or socially. Temporary tension and discord at home will require you to bite your lip and stay quiet just to keep the peace. Singles can expect discussions over marriage and a possible difference of opinion with a female relative. Health matters seem under control but signing up for a Yoga or Meditation class will bring a deep sense of peace and fulfilment. Do something your future self will thank you for.
Scorpio (Oct 23- Nov 21)
Stay cool. Count to 10 and expect delays and sudden change of plans. People may annoy you with their tardiness. And family may just get your goat with their quirks. While you’re brewing inside, do remember to do something about stress levels. Go for a walk, or a jog. Or just head to the spa. The world needs your talents now and you can’t afford to let anyone down. Stay open-minded and open to constructive criticism. A job opportunity or business offer may appear too good to be true. Make sure you do homework before jumping in. Relationships with loved ones may be strained and tense at times. You need to learn to be more considerate to other people’s feelings.
Sagittarius (Nov 22- Dec 21)
Work matters feel tiring and frustrating. You may seem like you’re the only one who’s actually doing the work. Or realise that people are taking advantage of your generosity and niceness in the days ahead and decide to hold back. Do that, especially if you know they are only taking and not giving anything in return. Time to detach yourself from people and situations that just aren’t worth it. Use this time to recuperate and pamper yourself. Children will be a source of joy. And someone in the family may bring some wonderful news. Some unexpected bills may throw you off gear so make sure your finances are in place.
Capricorn (Dec 22- Jan19)
Let go of your need to intellectualize everything. Drop the façade and learn to experience. It’s time to participate, not analyse. You may have to wait a little longer for the answers to appear. Or someone may withhold the truth for a while. Go with your instincts and don’t force anything at this point. Even in matters of the heart, you may feel left out or excluded from a gathering. A part of you no longer fits in with the old crowd. Or you could find yourself drifting towards a new set of friends and experiences. Time to experiment and explore all options. And hold on to the decision making until you are 100% sure.
Aquarius (Jan 20- Feb 18)
Despite obstacles, you are on a very strong path. There may be tense and anxious moments around you, but you will be determined not to let it fluster you, so it won’t last for long. You may make a decision to actively find solutions and this driving force will get you success. If there’s anything to watch out for, it’s a hint of betrayal by someone you thought was on your side. Pay attention to the red flags and realise it is only a matter of time before you see their true colours. Luck will be with you in money matters, and getting what you wanted, but only after a bit of worry and wait. Hang in there.
Pisces (Feb 19- Mar 20)
A positive, practical and logical phase begins, and the focus is on handling jobs of practical nature. You find yourself more grounded and more realistic about what you can do, what you cannot do and what you must do. The focus is on hopes, wishes, tangible results and accomplishments, and you’ll find yourself busy planning for a future event (work or social). There may be an offer of employment in store as this card is one of opportunities in the material plane. Clarify your objectives and seize the opportunity to take charge and focus on your goals. Relationship wise, it is time to clarify what you want in your partner. If they don’t match up, you may weigh all possibilities and decide whether you want to continue or not.
