There’s a change in energy for Aries this week, as you put the pause on partying and surround yourself with books. It’s all about quenching your thirst for knowledge and parking yourself in the corner of a library – preferably somewhere air-conditioned, because we know how much you hate the heat. Sign up for an online course or just pick up the how-to manual and find your way through. The time is ripe for pursuing new intellectual vistas and mastering new skills. Reach out over social media; there’s bound to be a book club around you, a tribe who’ll support this new avatar.
For Taurus, this week comes with a word of caution with regards to the people around you, specifically on the work front. Do you feel like there are things going on behind your back or maybe something that is out of your control? The way out here might be to just be upfront and honest with your team or boss. On the personal front, avoid deviating from the goal in any way that might be perceived as deceitful, because decisions made without forethought can often throw the whole project off course.
The card in play for Gemini this week is Strength, and besides the obvious tropes of strength of character and resolve in the face of adversity, this card also talks of sticking to what you believe is right in the nicest possible way. True strength is also in patience and calm, being tactful about voicing your opinions rather than declaring them as the indubitable best. Your actions can inspire the same in your team, and in that way bring them together to work towards your goal.
This week sees Cancer really coming into their own with the Nine of Pentacles ushering in a time of indulgence and luxury – luxury not just of a material sense, but also the luxury of time, time to invest in yourself, time to relax and enjoy the finer things in life. Surround yourself with things and people that make you feel good, but also be mindful of appreciating the smaller things in life. Sometimes we forget to be thankful for the love and support of our family and friends. Take yourself out on a date, catch up with your reading, do the things that make you happy.
This week for Leo is a return to the freedom, naivety, and carefree ways of childhood – finding the real joie de vivre akin to the time when the most difficult decision was which colour of crayon to use. It’s a time of reliving old memories and embracing your creative and frivolous side as a means of breaking away from the responsibilities and drudgery of adult life. What’s important is to use this as time off from the usual routine, and not as a means of escaping from any problems that are demanding your attention.
Virgo this week is the man/woman of the hour – when it comes to being a team player you’re definitely one to inspire and help others out! With your methodical approach to every task, and complete commitment to achieving goals, you’re the star performer. Not only that, others are looking to you as a source of support and encouragement, and you’re able to make them feel secure working with you by looking out for them. Let go of the feeling that you’ve plateaued, because this is the time for focused action.
Throw your hands in the air, Libra, because this week the Ace of Wands leads you on a serpentine journey of new creative energy, bold and unabashed self expression, and a burning fire in the bedroom. Without keeping your eyes open you’re attracting the attention of others, and this presents the opportunity to explore new avenues of sensual chemistry. Bored of the old way? Take it out of the bedroom! Don’t be afraid to tell them how you want it. This isn’t the week of asking for favours, it’s for demanding what you desire.
This week presents an interesting challenge for Scorpio particularly peeving because it involves a clash of egos leading, most obviously, to a toxic environment. Whether this is at work or at home, it’s important to remember to keep your knee-jerk reaction in control, and deal with the situation with a level head. An aggressive approach would only prolong the negativity brewing and might overlap onto other areas of your life.
The general feeling for Sagittarius this week is one of floating through space, feeling disconnected with your vision, and a lack of clarity about your position at work or in a relationship. Sometimes this can happen when you’ve experienced a sudden surge of creative energy, but the fuel has run out midway. Prepare to face your inner conflict with an armour, because sometimes the truth isn’t pretty. But the sooner you know the reason behind this disconnect, the sooner you can shake up the unfamiliarity of your position.
For Capricorn, this week is charged by the Ace of Wands, a card of sensual sparks and more importantly an overload of creative energy. Whether you’re inspired to start a new project (no side-hobbies this week, give it your whole heart and focus) or you find a new way to execute the one you’re currently working on – this is the universal green light to egg you on! Give in to the flow of this energy, and allow for spontaneity to guide you through the week.
The Four of Pentacles is a card of conservation, of controlling your possessions – both material and spiritual. On one hand, it provides a reminder that sometimes a penny saved really is a penny earned, and not every hungover shopping spree needs to be indulged in. It’s time to save up for your dream house, make a list of the things you’d want in your dream space, and invest in your future accordingly. On the other hand, this is a warning against indulging in your need for being in control to the point that it potentially lends you a bad reputation.
For Pisces, this is the week that your milkshake brings all the boys to the yard. You find yourself in the early stages of a new commitment – in matters of work or love – and feel like you’ve come into your own. You’ve got the reins in a dramatic but obvious power shift, and find yourself in a position to inspire those around you. Aside from the power, inspiration, and attention, the King of Pentacles is also a card of material satisfaction, making this the perfect time for you to plan your next move!
