The Universe responds to every vibration. So be conscious and mindful of what you’re sending out. If you’ve done your bit of the karma, let the divine plan unfold. And unfold it shall! Those who’ve harmed, cheated, or deceived you are sure to get a reality check. Here’s when you let go of the bitterness and your need to control the result. Everything will eventually work out in your favour.
One minute you’re worrying about paying your bills off, the next minute you’re hitting the mall for a shopathon of a lifetime. Sounds far fetched? Good. It’s cardio time for your imagination because anything could happen right now! Yes, Lady Luck is sending a little extra sparkle your way — especially in the realm of your career. What do you want to manifest? A dream job, a raise, a promotion, or a transfer to the Paris office? Do your bit by harnessing the opportunities you are being presented with right now.
Three things, Gemini: hard work, patience, and a commitment to your craft. Give all you have to the cause and the Universe will respond manifold. Remember that no matter where we are in our lives, there’s always scope to learn and grow. And everybody we meet along the way knows something we do not. You’re likely to meet many masters — be open to their words. What if this is what you need to take your work to the next level? It’s also wise to use this time to go within and polish your skill set.
There’s nothing a Cancer baby loves more than loving and being loved. At any point of time, we have two options — to operate from fear or to operate from love. To embrace the latter means to keep your heart warm, open, and vulnerable. That’s your inherent nature. With your heart chakra going boom-boom-boom, you’ll have created your very own circle of trust. Use this openness to communicate with your special someone and watch how the emotional connect grows deeper and stronger.
What happens when we open that space of love within us? Our lover responds to our vibrations, ergo to start to feel the tingle of love. Superficiality be gone! This week is about going deep, deep, deeper. Use the language of words and the secret language of lovers. There’s a new chapter of intimacy waiting to be written. This energy is likely to make you feel creatively inspired too. Colour your feelings on a canvas. Capture hearts in monochrome. Create a symphony about the magic of the moment.
This is a period of healing and cleansing. Sure, the future looks rather bleak from where you are standing. Two more steps, Virgo! And you will have crossed the threshold. You can either choose to carry the disappointment with you or drop it at this very minute so that you can start anew. Trust that there are better things waiting to happen to you.
We are one with the Universe and yet we are alone. Alone speaks not of lonely, but of solitude. The silence within us where we seek solace from the noise of the world. Your old wounds are calling for attention. Let this be a time to heal and let go. It is from this light that you will then be able to illuminate the path of others and emerge as a wiser version you.
You are your own silence. You are your own storm. So what do you want to create in your reality, Scorpio? As you find yourself in the midst of chaos one more time, you will realise it is but your own chains that are keeping you bound. What do these chains represent in your life — inertia, lethargy, lack of faith, self-destructing beliefs, or toxic relationships? The cards are empowering you to break free from the shackles and reclaim the freedom of your soul.
It’s been a long, meandering road, Sagittarius. And you’ve been tested over and over. But your unyielding strength has gotten you this far! Yes, you’re the very epitome of strength. But the war is not over yet. Your cheat code to victory — change your approach that will change things this time ‘round. Let go of your need to control. It’s only isolating you further. Open yourself out for help and support, and see how the Universe responds.
Of what use is that brilliant idea if it never sees the light of day? This week is all about action. About holding the reigns and flirting with destiny. Finding a way to make tangible that which is intangible. In many ways, this means having to be your own boss and cracking the whip on yourself. Establishing an order will help take things to the next level — for instance, fixing the works hours, recruiting people who are driven, and being 100% focussed on the goal. This is not the time to experiment. To take over the world, stick to the tried and tested!
This week you’re the Queen of no bullshit. Tell it like it is, Aquarius, because sugar coating is so last season. Drop the who-what-where aside. Often we refrain from speaking the truth — our truth — for the fear that it may put the people around us off. Well, that’s for them to deal with. You’re just doing your job. ‘Course there is a fine line between straightforward and downright ruthless — be mindful of the boundary, especially when you communicate with loved ones. People will eventually appreciate the honesty you bring to the table.
I know, I know! Humanity sucks. You’d rather spend your days in the company of cake and cats. Perhaps the problem is not mankind, but the trap of superficiality you’ve gotten yourself in. This week, that polite dinner table conversation just won’t roll. You know what you need, darling? Your own eat-pray-love. Pack the bare essentials and put your best smile on. It’s time to rediscover the freedom of your soul.
