Here’s what the ancient Tarot cards have to say about your Sun sign for this week:
Aries (Mar 21- Apr 19)
Clarity after the confusion. Though your self confidence will be soaring one minute and down in the next, you’ll find in the ultimate analysis you’re at a clearer position than you were before. A phase of learning, growth, clear thinking, creativity and education, you may be contemplating further studies or finding ways to diversify and express yourself in more creative terms. Don’t be afraid of saying what you feel to that special soul who’s caught your eye. In terms of money matters and paperwork, time to get a lot more organised. Don’t leave things till the last minute.
Taurus (Apr 20- May 20)
You may be faced with a dilemma which will demand action or decision, and you will try and figure out the best way to proceed or make the right choice. There will be moments where you’ll feel trapped in a dead-end situation, but trust that what may appear as negative on the surface, may just be a blessing in disguise! Even in family matters, unexpected upheavals may occur and at times you may feel like too many responsibilities are being heaped upon you. Speak out and don’t shut down your feelings. Health matters may require a second opinion or alternative therapy.
Gemini (May 21- June 20)
Some inner work is required. You may feel there’s a lot of demands being made on you at home and at work. Consider the broader picture and don’t let minor upsets deter you from your goals. Learn to strike a balance between your inner needs and the demands of the world, or with the needs of you and your loved ones. Moderation is advised. Don’t let the past colour your views. It’s time to let go of past patterns that no longer help you or anyone around you. You may even go on a rollercoaster ride of emotions, high and then low, but eventually you will come on top. A strong feeling to succeed will motivate you and you may also want to liberate yourself from restraints. Proceed one step at a time and remember to be patient.
Cancer (June 21- July 22)
A time for assessment, consolidation and advancement. You are ready for the next level and may feel the time is right. However, the cards warn you to be patient, not be impulsive and wait for the right moment before you make your move. Think before you speak. Read before you sign. And pause before you rush into anything. Relationships may suffer if one of you acts too controlling. Or a rebellious young soul may need his or her freedom. Health may need to be watched, especially if you have been ignoring a recurring symptom of late.
Leo (July 23- Aug 22)
Be brutally honest with yourself. Figure out what makes you tick. See what needs to change. The more you understand and accept yourself with all your flaws and strengths, the more peace you will find. A long-standing misunderstanding can be sorted out. Or you decide to forgive someone totally. A good phase to make amends, start anew and reconnect with people from the past. Life experiences have taught you well, and what used to bother you earlier no longer does. You may be contemplating travel, relocation or even considering work overseas in the next 24 months. Health matters remain good as long as you stay mindful.
Virgo (Aug 23- Sept 22)
Your diligence pays. You will continue to perform at your work, and be viewed as someone rock-solid in their views. A meeting with your superiors may reveal certain strengths you have or challenges which you can work upon. Find out how you can reach the next level and, with sustained effort, you may get that promotion or increment. Find a mentor or share your situation with a helpful senior. A job you may have applied for a long time ago may materialize but it will be up to you to take it up. Finances appear smooth and gradual growth is revealed. In personal relationships, be a little more sensitive with your better half. Harmony comes when both of you work as a team.
Libra (Sept 23- Oct 22)
Certain patterns keep repeating themselves in your life. People react or behave in the same old way when things get stressful. The cards urge you to recognize this pattern and see how you can change your response. A part of you may be nostalgic for the good old days. Realise times have changed. You may like to link up with friends from your past, or pursue a hobby which used to bring you great joy and peace. Librans in IT, Manufacturing or Retail may consider a change in role or request for more responsibilities. A recurring ailment may need a second opinion.
Scorpio (Oct 23- Nov 21)
You may be feeling trapped in your situation partially by the circumstances and partly by your own fears. Face your fears head on and realize you may be limiting your potential to grow by playing it safe or by sticking too hard to the tried and tested. Major changes need to be implemented in your life. You may have to give up something to get something bigger and better. Re evaluate your situation and see how you can do things differently. Opt for a new location, new industry or a new attitude altogether. Change will be very good for all of you, but first you must be willing to take the risks. Health matters reveal a need to release a bad habit once and for all if you want to maintain your health.
Sagittarius (Nov 22- Dec 21)
Change is looming in the air. A part of you may want to work in a new organization or experience something new altogether. You are asked to take a few risks and not be afraid of the future. Remember if you initiate change, it will happen. If you choose not to take risks, things may stay the same. Self-employed Sagittarians may consider going back to the corporate world or may toy with the idea of a partnership. The health of an older woman may cause concern, but with timely treatment there is recovery. Financially a good period to organise your money and investment, seek the help of an advisor if required.
Capricorn (Dec 22- Jan19)
Stop looking at what’s missing and start focussing on what you do have. You may be concentrating or thinking about what you don’t have and there may be concerns about “losing it all”. Turn this energy around and focus on what you have, what you have learnt, achieved and been blessed with. A sense of gratitude will not only usher in greater positive energy into your life, it may also bring in renewed optimism about the future. Figure out how to work better with your family members, support staff, colleagues and partners and discover greater gains in the months ahead materially and spiritually. A short and sweet affair could turn into something serious.
Aquarius (Jan 20- Feb 18)
Don’t believe everything you read, hear or see. Trust your own inner voice. Someone may be promising far more than they will actually do and you realise that actions do speak loud and clear. Workplace politics may turn ugly if you aren’t vigilant of the true motives of your coworkers and peers. Remember all work and no play? Well, how about bringing back the work life balance into your life? Take time out to chill, party and catch up with loved ones. Money matters get sorted out after a few days of stress. A short holiday may be just what your soul needs.
Pisces (Feb 19- Mar 20)
After a long spell of disappointment and delays, peace returns. And you find yourself smiling from inside. Good feeling, isn’t it? And you deserve every bit of it. You may feel like focussing on your home at this period, redecorating or cooking a special meal for your loved ones. If planning on studying overseas or learning a new skill, luck is in your favour. Remember not to get too passive in this period. Don’t waste time and energy doing nothing. Singles may find the return of an old flame. Before you return to your ex, remember why you two broke up in the first place.
