Here’s what the ancient Tarot cards have to say about your Sun sign for this week:
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
The best jobs are done when great minds come together for a common cause. Matters of teamwork, alliances and mergers are highlighted. Negotiations run smoothly. And any agreements made now have the potential of bringing in greater security for the long term. Children may need extra care and attention especially if they’ve been moody of late. Perhaps a little quality time or pampering should help mend fences with a loved one who’s gone slightly aloof. A good phase to learn meditation especially if you’ve been stressing over the small stuff.
Taurus (Apr 20- May 20)
Energy levels fluctuate. You may find yourself drained by the smallest of tasks. Or find it too much of a bother to interact with demanding people. Perhaps it’s time to take a small break. Or just detach and recharge your batteries. Delays at work and travel may frustrate you temporarily but you will look back and be glad for the time you have now. Unexpected bills or expenses may come as an unwelcome surprise and if you are looking at upgrading your phone or buying a new car, prepare to spend more than you thought you would. Health matters show healing but also a lot more rest time.
Gemini (May21- June 20)
Trust your instincts about someone or something. If you feel they are not telling you the full story, they aren’t. If you think there is a hidden agenda, well, there is. A little fact-finding could help you get answers. And if you were worried about a project or presentation, the cards assure you things will go on track. Sleep patterns may be disturbed or you could find yourself struggling to stay awake. Your body may need more downtime. Friendships made in this period assure you of the excitement you crave. A soulmate could be found.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Time to be a lot more flexible when it comes to your routine and your behaviour patterns. Life may throw a challenge your way and you have no choice but to adapt and modify your original plan. The more ready you are for a plan B, the better things go. People may act stubbornly or refuse to see your point of view. How about being a better listener for now and listen to what isn’t being said? A good phase begins to reappraise your life and your health. Quit a bad habit. Start a new fitness routine. Do something that your future self will thank you for.
Leo (July 23- Aug 22)
When you give the way you do, you give with all your heart and soul. And the universe pays attention. You will make sure no one is deprived of attention, comfort, praise or help. Interactions with others become more meaningful. You could find yourself getting closer to a woman who was once just an acquaintance. Or discover that a lot more people trust you with their secrets. A short holiday may be finalised. Or you could be preparing for a move in the months ahead. Just don’t go overboard while eating or drinking and your health should be fine.
Virgo (Aug 23- Sept 22)
Time to bring back the routine. If the past few weeks have been hectic, you may concentrate on organising and decluttering. Clean up your desk. Wipe out the junk mail. Sort out your wardrobes. And give away all the excess. You may seek closure in your relationships with someone from your past. And have to deal with a difficult family member who refuses to see things your way. Patient handling is required with loved ones and even your colleagues. You may want to accomplish a lot in a short time, but do they? De-stressing periodically keeps your energy levels up.
Libra (Sept 23- Oct 22)
Time to be mindful about your thoughts and your actions as the card of karma appears. Karmic returns aren’t all about punishing you for bad deeds. It’s also about rewards for all the good things you may have thought, said or done in the past. With the card of due rewards, expect a positive balance in your life. And don’t be surprised if you suddenly find yourself being praised and applauded. Money matters look up. What was owed to you will be returned. And in the following months there will be plenty extra for you to invest in. Health matters may need a second opinion.
Scorpio (Oct 23- Nov21)
You may become tired of the restraints and restrictions. A part of you feels like rebelling and breaking free. There’s a part of you that’s fed up with the routine. And you may be tempted to quit your job and launch your own startup. Or take a sabbatical and travel the world. However, patience will not be a strong point in this phase. Do remember to be tactful and diplomatic with those you love and care for. Somewhere in your strong need to be free of all demands and bonds, you may run into conflicts with others who may resent your sudden desire to be free. Do it gently, do it compassionately and then enjoy your newfound independence.
Saggitarius (Nov 22- Dec 21)
Don’t be surprised if you suddenly find yourself more at peace with the world. The card of harmony and inner balance ushers in a phase of bliss, comfort and joy in the small things of Life. Relax and soak the beauty in, remember good times don’t last, and neither do bad times. Creativity abounds and you could be full of some wonderful new ideas for your work, your home or even on how to solve a long-standing problem. Don’t hold back. A period of gains and growth has begun and the more you rise to the demands, the better things will be.
Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan19)
Multi-tasking, balancing priorities, 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. Self-employed Capricornians may look forward to another stream of income. And consultants and freelancers can enjoy a period of greater gains. Relationships may take a back seat as work takes priority. Just be mindful of getting enough rest. Watch out for allergies and sprains.
Aquarius (Jan 20- Feb 18)
Heal and move on. Buried anger, buried resentments and old irritants from the past may suddenly resurface, forcing you to relook at things from a wiser and more mature perspective. Please don’t think you’re being victimized or punished, the Universe is simply allowing you to relook the anger, process it and then heal it for your own higher good. Even in relationships, it may be time to get things off your chest and express yourself with a loved one. An older man may need a favour. And someone needs to be forgiven. Money matters look up. And health starts showing positive results. Just let go.
Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20)
Success is in your hands. A period of growth and gains begins. And the more you stay open-minded to learning new things, the better it will be for you in the long run. A new job, a new course of study or even new roles and responsibilities sees you rise to the challenge effortlessly. Teamwork is highlighted and you may find yourself connecting with new faces. Just avoid taking any risks right now, stick to the tried and tested and things should proceed smoothly. In love and relationships, you may be ready for a long-term commitment. And an engagement may even be announced soon. Enjoy it dear Piscean, you deserve every bit of good energy coming in your direction!
