How does it feel to feel, feel, feel? To be swimming in an ocean of your own emotions? Ah, the fiery Aries reveals a softer side — and this may seem alien, even to you. Don’t roll your eyes, Aries. Stay with this for a minute. The softness and the sensitivity. In this lies your strength. In matters of the heart — whether it’s with a friend or a lover — allow yourself to be vulnerable. Your intuitive side is working overtime too. You know when you just ‘know’. Just listen to it.
You know that feeling of being truly loved and desired by somebody, where you don’t know where you end and where they begin? You’ll be swimming your way through the cosmos with that feeling of ‘two bodies, one soul’. It is the differences that create polarity. So accept and celebrate these differences. Some of you may take a huge leap in the commitment department this week, or plan the engagement you’ve been dreaming of for a long time. Remember it’s all about partnership. Some of you may feel that divine spark with a sibling, a soul sister, or even a co-worker.
This week, that feeling of being ‘stuck’ is perpetual. What got you here in the first place? Do you feel cheated by a co-worker or abandoned by a lover? As you dig deeper, you will realise that the limitation comes from within. People and circumstances cannot hold you back or stop you from being where you need to be. Break free from these self-imposed prisons and move on.
Retreat from the world into your inner sanctum. The warrior has been wounded in more places than one. What’s worse is that her heart is bleeding too. The only way to change the ‘without’ is to go within. Spend time in silence. In deep contemplation. Allow time to heal the blisters and bruises. You’ll know when it’s time to go back into the world and resolve that which remains unresolved.
You know what pisses people off? A heady combination of indifference and nonchalance. Here’s a bottomless pitcher of in-chalance for you! When we’re secure, truly, truly secure about who we are and what we’re doing, nobody can bring us down. Understand where people are operating from. Chances are, when they attack you, they are driven by their own fears and insecurities. Smile, sip, and swirl your sexiness, and go about your daily business. Think of yourself as a yogi in deep meditation. Them intruders? Common houseflies.
Your wisdom is the need of the hour. What makes your leadership approach unique is the way you bring that ‘spiritual’ touch to practical, everyday issues. It’s what makes people look up to you. Remember that being a master of the subject has little to do with age. Keep the books close, but check with your intuition every now and then. Adopting the traditional and the tested will take you a long way.
Oh, that sweet, sweet feeling of homecoming! Of going back to where you came from. Open your heart, honey! Let this love heal the old wounds. Let those who’ve stood by you in the darkest hour know how much you appreciate and care for them. Gratitude is an important practice, Libra. Begin with those closest to you. Of course, our family is not limited to our blood ties, but extends to those who belong to our soul.
How do you feel about love, love, love? Feel, I say! Not think. Let’s keep your mind out of your heart’s business. You know the first rush of love, when everything makes you feel like you’re in the midst of bloom — why does it dissipate faster than it comes? Because of our need to shut the heart down thereafter…because what if we actually fall in love? So fall into the abyss, goddamnit, and find your way back up. Are you going to let your fears come in the way of the most beautiful feeling in the world?
Look at those gorgeous hands! They turn everything they touch into gold. You’re feeling extra creative this week — whether it’s in the form of translating that feeling of ‘butterflies’ on the canvas or upgrading your regular cheese sandwich with a divine blend of herbs. Stay with that magic, Sagittarius. We hear it’s beauty that gives us hope on the darkest days and makes the world go round. This week is also about coming into your power as a woman, a goddess, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a wife, and a lover. Your very presence brings bliss into their lives!
Fearlessness chapter #4. This week you’re really coming into your own. You must be able to assert yourself in order to get what you want. What remains unsaid, Capricorn? A conversation with your best friend about how Friday nights are a sacred, no-BF zone; with your lover about trust and accountability; with your mum about how arranged marriage is off the charts; or with your HR about the raise you were eligible for about a year ago? Of course, people may or may not like hearing it like it is, but you don’t want to be stuck with the raw deal. Do you now?
Give them a lesson in fearlessness, Aquarius! This week, you’re the image of unwavering courage and strength. Despite your initial success, get ready to face roadblocks in the form of people who threaten your power. Bullies are often the most powerless people in the game. How’s that for food for thought? Now where were you headed? To the pinnacle of success. And you won’t let nobody bring you down!
Pisces, are you ready to run with the wolves? This week is about going deeper into contemplation. Into meditation. As you do, you will be able to access higher realms of consciousness. That wise woman within has been calling you for a while. Pick up the phone! You know what that means, darling? A) You’ll never have to look elsewhere to get an answer. B) These will be the best decisions you’ll ever make. Feeling a strong pull towards channelling or working as a medium? Think no more. To strengthen her energy, spend some time connecting with the moon.
