Work takes centerstage this week. That and the pursuit of all things shiny. For lucky Ariens, opportunity of the new will come knocking on your door. Others may have to play a more active role in manifesting this opportunity for themselves. A raise, a promotion, a collaboration, the proposal of a coveted project — it’s all in the realm of your possibilities right now! Good things happen to those who believe! Replace your general cynicism on the work front. It’s time to let the good things flow.
Pick up your sword and your shield, Taurus. This week is about going to war for what you believe in — even if it means you’re the last (wo)man standing. Operate from a space of clarity. That means not allowing yourself to carried away by what the ego has to say. Be on the guard in the work space. Raise your voice if and when you feel like you’re being wronged. Make it a point to address the issues that plague you on the personal front as well. The process will free you in more ways than one.
No more slow mo! Life is ready to hit the accelerator — move forward at a pace that will have you gasping for breath. Just roll with it, Gemini! There will be plenty of time to pranayama later. Let this passionate energy set your work life on fire as well. Sometimes, life is a dog and the bone game. So adopt a ‘grab and go’ approach. You don’t want your competitors to get their hands on what’s meant to be yours. This opportunity at hand doesn’t necessarily come with the promise of financial gains — not immediately at least. Do it for the love. It will sure as hell be worth the effort.
A wise woman once said that in the absence of change, life would be like an endless traffic jam. If transience is a way of life, then why oh why do we hold on to the dead and the decaying? Welcome utter and complete chaos, Cancer. It will destroy everything that’s untrue in your life. ‘Course it’s not going to be easy! But that’s the test of real strength. Step #2: focus on how you can resurrect the structures that have fallen apart. It’s time to rebuild the life of your dreams — this time ‘round on a solid foundation.
It’s probably one of those weeks where you set the alarm for 7, and you only manage to pull yourself out of bed by half past 8. Whoda thunk you’d cheat on your furry feline friend to party like you’re 16 all over again? Not to say that you don’t deserve to let your hair down every once in a while, but a gentle reminder that the inner world counts as much as the one outside. Be mindful about me time, Leo. Make a conscious effort to reconnect with yourself. Sooner or later, you’ll get tired of the superficial trap.
Hold on, Virgo! You can’t reach the finish line without having run the race. It’s time to reassess the work situation. What is the empire that you dream of for yourself? What are the necessary steps required to build it? Things to remember — you’re hustler at heart. Your power-packed energy makes you capable of doing absolutely anything under the sun. Get to business, pronto!
It’s time-out in the war zone, Libra. Alas! Peace prevails! How to stay sexy this week while emanating those ‘Om Shanti Om’ vibes? Believing — nay, knowing — everything is, in fact, going according to the plan. Areas of your life that were previously in sleep mode are now ready to jump into action. With very little effort from your side, you’ll see things moving in the right direction. Sure, the pace might be a bit overwhelming, leaving you gasping for breath. But you’re going to enjoy every bit of it.
Oh, what a time to be in love! Oh, what a time to be wooed! If you feel like you’re the one who has always been holding the space for your partner’s emotions, know that he is finally ready to open that space for you. You’ll be surprised by how sensitive he is to your needs. How he’s ready to bare his heart and soul. Open yourself to the idea of forever together. The gift of emotional fulfillment is yours to keep.
Et tu, Brute? Ah, the pain of being deceived by the one you love! Pull the needles out like you would rip a bandaid, but not without mulling over what the pain means to you. There are big time lessons to be learned, Sagi. To get back on track, you’ll need to get off the emotional rollercoaster and crack the whip with yourself. What helps you restore order and balance in your life? What is it that makes you feel connected with yourself? That 7 am run in the park, a solid pranayama practice, or simply observing silence within? Being your own mentor will take you a long way.
Now now, Capricorn! Do you really want the sparks without a fire? Playing it safe is for dummies. You’re ready for the next big step with your lover, whether it’s taking things from benefits to ‘there’s something there zone’, or making a commitment for the long haul. It’s really not that complicated! Somebody’s got to take a stance here. Let that be you! Take a leap into the unknown, no matter how daunting it may seem. You won’t be disappointed.
Oh, the world is full of endless possibilities! Where do you want to go from here? This is the time to tune into the fires of your passion. Listen to your wildest dreams and desires. Set out to manifest them with a smile on your face and courage in your heart. As you do, address your fears too. Be honest with yourself about what’s holding you back. Show self-limiting beliefs the exit door.
Open your heart, Pisces, and as you do, let the love in! This week is about utter and complete synchronicity. Revel in that feeling of being on the same page as your partner. What’s the next big step of togetherness? Allow yourself to flow into the space of commitment. There’s a happily-ever-after waiting to be written. Challenges come and go, Pisces! Don’t let them come in the way of the life you want to build for yourselves.
