In whose hands are you placing your trust, Aries? This is a week of some secrets and many revelations. Things that you were in the dark about will finally be revealed to you. The not so good part about this phase: how it makes your heart feel less. Betrayal comes from somebody you love. Forgive, but don’t forget. This is a lesson of a lifetime.
This week is about following a no-bullshit policy. You know exactly what you want and how to get it. Now let’s talk business, baby! What follows the planning and strategising process? Finding the right resources to put things in action. Remember that your subordinates are counting on you to show them the light. Be willing to guide them at every step of the way.
When old wounds rear their ugly head, where will you run and hide? That feeling of being let down is perpetual this week. As a result, you’re likely to turn a blind eye to the right kind of opportunity — whether it is a business deal with major potential, opening your heart to somebody who wants to be let in, or simply an invitation to mix and mingle. Don’t let the past meddle with the present. Take time off to get your mojo back, but not that long that another little damsel-in-disguise claims right to your knight in shining armour.
Say hello to your knight in shining armour! He may or may not put his life at risk for you, but he sure as hell knows how to mesmerise you with poetry and prose. This week is about the emotional and spiritual connect. About sitting under the stars and sharing your hopes, dreams, and aspirations. Don’t hold back, honey! Allow yourself to delve into the territory of emotions.
What is it that your heart desires, because, baby, you can have it all! You’re feeling especially positive as far as your heart connections are concerned. Keep giving them good vibes, darling. The Universe is responding to your every vibration. You’re also likely to find yourself in the lap of luxury this week. Did somebody say a weekend of wine-tasting?
Back in the burrow, baby! This week you return to your natural state of solitude. For some of you, it’s baggage from the past that lingers. For others, it’s the strong urge to personally regroup. Best to spend time reading, contemplating, and meditating. Seeker at heart? Turn to your guru or mentor for wise words. You’re sure to emerge from this phase a wiser, ‘shinier’ version of yourself.
You’re all feelings and emotions this week — in the nicest way possible. With so much love to give, you’re attracting people like bees to honey. You’ll be playing mother hen meets agony aunt a lot more than you plan on. It’s that gift of intuiting feelings even before they’re put it into words. Just be sure not to absorb too much lest you let the emotions of others bring you down.
This week is about the bizarre and the fantastical — whether it’s wearing brocade to the bazaar, or sipping on pinã coladas for breakfast. Don’t hold back, Scorpio! Channel this potent energy into the creative projects you’re working on. Do you feel a connect towards the performing arts? Get on stage and grab a mic. Already a seasoned performer? Take the next big step towards realising your dream. Let people love you for exactly who you are.
This is the end of the cycle, Sagittarius. A dark, gloomy one at that. Some of the negative emotions still linger. And then there’s that part of you that’s holding on to the pain. Let go of that which brings you down. That’s the only way to let the light in. And trust me, you’ll be wearing your sunnies a lot more than you plan on.
Disclaimer: the party don’t stop. This week is about the family and the community. Simply being together and filling each other’s cup feels like a celebration. Some of you may have a tangible reason to bring out the bubble, such an engagement, the birth of child, or simply a reunion. But then again who said you need a tangible reason to throw the party of the season? This is a time to practice gratitude. Be there for others as they have been there for you.
Let your warm and sunny side come to the fore this week. The ‘let’s be serious about everything’ act is getting a bit boring. You know that the right way to get things done is by being ridiculously optimistic. On the personal front, this positivity is likely to rub off on the people around you. At work too, use this energy to speed things up and motivate your co-workers. But don’t forget the most important thing: to have plenty of fun while doing absolutely everything.
Playing it down is for rookies. Feeling the feels for somebody? Yearning for holy communion? Thinking about home and family? Take a giant leap of faith in the direction of love, and tell this special someone exactly how you feel. Chances are, they want all the mushy things in life as well. As such, this is a time of togetherness with your family and the all the people who feel like ‘home’. Everything you need is right here and in this moment. Oh, the things we must be grateful for!
