Here’s what the ancient Tarot cards have to say about your Sun sign for this week:
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
What are you doing for yourself? Time for some much-needed self-care. Pay attention to the signals your body gives you. Be mindful about your diet. And steer clear from those who tire you and drain you with their demands. At work you may spend time seeking closure, tying up loose ends and completing unfinished tasks. A project or assignment may be coming to a close and it would be wise to make sure everything is done and dusted. On the personal front, you realise how important it is to have some quiet time all to yourself and may avoid social gatherings for now. Just tell your loved ones in advance about your desire to withdraw for a while so they don’t worry. Money worries cease.
Taurus (Apr 20- May 20)
If there’s anything you’re tired of doing, it’s pleasing others and handling excessive responsibilities. Problems and delays with organisations and institutions may feel like a burden especially if there’s a lot of red tape involved. Energy levels may fluctuate so make sure you rest a lot on the days when you’re too tired to deal with the world around you. Payments may be held up for now but it doesn’t mean you won’t get them. A little patience goes a long way. Family matters may get tiring as someone continues to make jibes or hurt you with their callousness. Rise above their behaviour and focus on surrounding yourself with who and what you love.
Gemini (May21- June 20)
You’re a natural when it comes to leading the pack. And the weeks ahead will reveal your position of authority and planning skills to everyone. Don’t shy away from taking on more at this time. You’re rising up the ladder and this is not a time to back down. If there’s anything to watch out for, it’s your direct honesty which may not be taken very well by someone. Control the urge to lash out in anger. Tensions in the family could flare up as a younger soul acts irresponsibly or irrationally. Stay cool under pressure. Health matters show steady recovery and if you’re up for it, a new fitness regime could boost your adrenalin.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
You feel like spending a lot in this phase. Expenses could go up as you find yourself splurging on luxuries. Or busying yourself with home renovation and repairs or even just upgrading your phone. Money matters, negotiations and discussions will go smoothly. And you may find yourself talking about future investments as well. Cancerians involved in retail, manufacturing and IT will enjoy a busy phase. While the money flows in and out in equal intensity, make sure to keep aside some for a rainy day. Or better still, give back to a cause you believe in. A celebration in the family brings joy.
Leo (July 23- Aug 22)
So much to do so little time. Responsibilities and chores may pile up. Or you could find yourself dealing with a totally inept team. Learn to delegate and allow others to learn from their own mistakes. You can’t protect everyone and you can’t do everything for everyone all the time either. Paperwork may pile up. Or you could find yourself busy caring for an elder. Make sure other family members are doing their fair share. Ask for help if you need it. Money matters look up and you may find yourself planning a large purchase in the weeks ahead. If you are planning to relocate, or move homes don’t underestimate the amount of time or effort it will take. Health matters may require you to be a little more self-disciplined.
Virgo (Aug 23- Sept 22)
Fight for what you believe in and stand your ground. You may have to face a few critics who need to be handled firmly. Competition may grow fierce. Or you could find yourself having to deal with an unpleasant customer or a troll. Hang in there, with your determination you will eventually achieve success by sheer force of will and assertiveness. Businesses enter a profitable period and previous losses will be recovered. Job seekers may find better luck in new locations or upcoming industries. The health of a loved one shows recovery, time to breathe a sigh of relief.
Libra (Sept 23- Oct 22)
Positive vibes! Optimism returns and so does your self-confidence. You realise that happiness is an inside job and you have worked hard on yourself and self-worth and stopped depending on others to make you feel good about yourself. A good time begins to prepare yourself for some changes up ahead – be it in your physical appearance, your job, or your business. And you’re ready for new opportunities and taking a few risks as well. Acts of charity and voluntary service bring blessings your way. Or you may choose to be generous with your time and possessions. Whatever you give away, you will receive back. So start sharing the good vibes!
Scorpio (Oct 23- Nov21)
Your hard work pays off. Relax and enjoy a time of balance and equilibrium in your life, when you can be yourself with the fewest obstacles from people or circumstances. You may feel like taking a break from work. Or decide to just catch up with old friends you haven’t met in a while. Self-employed Scorpions will start seeing results. And those in media, entertainment or communications may discover their ideas getting the applause and recognition that you’ve been craving for a long time. Family matters will run smoothly. And you may think about renovating your home. Enjoy this phase while it lasts.
Saggitarius (Nov 22- Dec 21)
This is an excellent time to make plans for where you wish to go in terms of both work and personal life. Your mind is clear and your focus razor sharp. Paperwork, bank matters and any documentation proceed smoothly as you are determined to see it through and not miss any details. And if you’ve been eyeing the promotion, you’ve made the right impression on your bosses. Just watch out for manipulative women in your personal life. You might find yourself saying yes when your heart says no. Avoid mediating someone else’s conflict. And do keep your opinion to yourself as you could find yourself in the middle of a controversy or a scandal at worst. Health matters look up as you find the changes you’ve made delivering the results.
Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan19)
Some things in life cannot be avoided. Some duties cannot be dodged. This week asks you to be accountable for your actions and behaviour in the past. Or dealing with some unpleasant individuals who could be out to corner you. Interactions with people from your past may make you realise how far you’ve come and how much you’ve grown as a person. You may discover just how hard it is to recover the money that was owed to you and find yourself dealing with them avoiding your calls. However, on the personal front, a long heart-to-heart conversation with an old friend should lift your spirits. Married couples enjoy quality time together.
Aquarius (Jan 20- Feb 18)
Generosity is a virtue. But in moderation. Someone may take advantage of your good heart. Or you could discover you’ve been used by an old acquaintance. Lesson learned, just move on with the experience. And remember to set boundaries about how much you can and cannot do for others. Financially, this could be the beginning of a lucky phase, if you play your cards right. A new phase is around the corner that promises prosperity and gains, provided you’re smart about it. Singles may enjoy meeting new people, but be careful with how much you give of yourself. Don’t go overboard with affection. Moderation is the key.
Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20)
A new chapter unfolds in your life. You may be all set to learn a new skill or subject. Or discover a thirst for knowledge that will pay huge dividends in the long run. Sign up for the course. Find a mentor. Enroll in the hobby class you’ve always dreamt of. On the personal front, someone close to you teaches you a valuable life lesson. Learn from the mistakes of others. Blessings from your well-wishers help you go far in life. Be sure to remain grateful.
