Hello, boss lady! What are you doing with all the power and skill you’ve got under your belt? Your inner Miranda Priestley seems to be hibernating. Perhaps you’re letting the downfalls you’ve had in the past come in the way of the bright future that awaits. Ain’t nobody going to believe in you, honey, till you believe in yourself. Are you ready to get a hold on the reigns?
Somebody seems to have rocked your emotional boat real bad, causing you to distrust some of your closest peeps. What are you going to make of these scars, honey? A reminder of your inner strength. The process of healing can begin whenever you want to. Have faith in yourself.
Statutory warning: good times ahead! Things are really looking up for your Gemini, now matter how tedious the past may have been. Celebration is the word for you this week. Expect the most mundane gathering to turn into revelry, along with a dozen party invites, of course! Your social life really is the talk of the town. So expect to meet and greet a lot of people in the bargain. If you’re in the mood for quality over quantity, get two of your closest friends together.
It all looks topsy-turvy from where you’re standing, and you like being in control of your emotions. To be fair, you usually are. But recent incidents seemed to have shaken the boat slightly if not rocked it, leaving you disappointed and bitter. The fine art of balance, Cancer. We can’t always be in control of what others do or say, but we sure as hell can decide how much we let them affect us, and more importantly how to get right back on track.
There are always two ways of looking at the same thing. You could say it’s all coming to a tragic end or celebrate a new beginning. No, it’s not going to be easy. Change never is. That said, there are a bunch of trying times ahead. But let what has served its purpose die a natural death. Letting it linger longer will only cause hardship and pain. Be it a job, love, or belief system.
You sexy Virgo, you! Power looks so good on you. Tap into the left side of your brain. Yes, that means your creative, artistic, and bohemian side. In there lies the secret to your universe — logical and analytical skills. It’s what will make you shine in the workplace like a star. Don’t be afraid to assert yourself. There’s a lot your subordinates could learn.
Rise from the ashes, Libra. How else are you going to take over the world? Things will begin to crumble slowly — things that you’ve worked so hard for. Hard as it is, let the process of change, nay transformation, take its course. There are so many lessons to learn, and each one will make you stronger than you can imagine. Ultimately, you will be reborn.
Back to your basics, Scorpio. Back to your books. Find something you are immensely passionate about, whether it is digital media or surrealist art. Step 2: find your guru. Somebody you respect immensely or somebody you look up to. If the skills in question are work related, turn to a senior who is an ace at the game. Step 3: dedicate every breathing moment to perfecting the art or skill. The payback will be bigger than you can imagine right now.
For some time now, you’ve been pushing yourself to make monumental changes in the right direction. It could be something small like implementing a new diet plan or taking up an online marketing course. Either way, it seems as if you’re really pushing your luck here. Total obstacle count: #87. Or shall we say another opportunity to demonstrate your dedication towards this goal? Once you’ve made peace with the inner and outer demons, you’re going to be mighty pleased with how close you are to achieving your goals.
What is all that weight you’re carrying around with you? And more importantly, is it even your doing? Being sympathetic is a commendable quality. We need more people like you in this world. But the line is blurred — between your pain and that of another. So safeguard your own needs, Capricorn. Reach out to others without hurting yourself in the bargain. More importantly, realise that everything that’s coming your way is transient and will soon be gone.
You’ve crossed a rather rocky road, Aquarius. Are you ready for what the future holds? Your newfound strength is your biggest asset in this quest. Your drive to seek the truth — the biggest motivator. Yes, there are a bunch of fresh challenges ahead. But nothing can deter you on this path. In the workplace, this may translate into a new undertaking, or looking at the same project with a brand new plan. You’ve got this!
If there has ever been a time to be in love, it is this. If you’ve been seeing somebody for a while, expect new levels of intimacy. The baddest of boys are likely to reveal their soft, vulnerable sides this week. Communication forms the essence of your relationship as each of you expresses his/her emotions fully. If you’re in the market for lurve, expect your soon-to-be lover to charm you with sweet nothings.
