There’s a closet poet inside you waiting to be unleashed! Of course, poetry is a metaphor for your inner creative yearnings — and this week the urge to express it is strong. Embrace the madness, Aries. Let it guide you. It is in this space that geniuses are born. A practical way to do this alongside your regular day job is to join a class, a club, or simply collaborate with people who will help inflame the fire.
The road’s been real topsy-turvy, with speed breakers at every curve. Unfasten your seatbelt, Taurus. Looks like you’ve finally achieved your goal. Corny as it is, everything will just ‘fall into place’ for you. The Universe is conspiring in the best way possible. Focus on tying loose ends in all aspects of your life so as to see them accelerate towards completion.
A general sense of dissatisfaction lingers. On the outside, it may seem like you have everything, but that feeling of emptiness dwells on the inside. Go on, take that sabbatical you’ve been thinking about, but make sure it’s a fruitful one. The kind where you detach in search of something larger than yourself. Perhaps that’s the secret to the inner peace you’re searching for.
Pull out that old copy of Cosmo, put on your sexiest lingerie, and get ready to turn the lights off (or not). Your knight in shining Armani is in the mood for some serious sexcapades this week. Not a dull moment around. Single ladies, brace yourself. A gentlemen with all the right moves (and hopefully words) may charm your pants off — and I don’t mean that metaphorically alone.
All eyes on you, girlfriend! This week, your social life is the talk of the town with invitations pouring in by the dozen — from grand fiestas to afternoon siestas. Don’t you dare put those joggers on, unless they’re sparkling. Bringing your A-game on means being ready even when you’re taking your dog for a walk. The urge to lose yourself in the superficiality of it all may be high. Just remember to keep it real.
It’s one of those weeks, Virgo. The Universe is looking down at you and smiling its prettiest smile. You’re breezing past your fave coffee shop when you find your crush is the one standing next to you, or you know that coveted piece of jewellery goes up on sale and you’re the first one to know. On a deeper level, you may feel like things are really turning in your favour. Things that had been stuck for a while will take a turn for the better.
If there’s something that unites us all, it’s the endless quest of love. Fortunately for you, the love is flowing freely and in abundance — and it promises to overwhelm you. But you know what’s the best part? The ease with which it all happens. Surrender to the flow, Libra. Open your heart. Say all the words you’ve been holding back. This feeling of union will transcend all that you’ve ever known.
Adversities stare us in the face when we least expect them to. Well, you know, that’s kind of their job. This week, you may find that the enemy is actually within you. Identify areas of your life that need a revamp. Old habits that keep rearing their ugly head when you’re not watching. Find the strength inside you to challenge each of them. Pull them out by the root, one by one. That’s the secret to empowering yourself.
Carpe diem, Sagittarius! There’s a brand new opportunity knocking on your door, waiting to be grabbed. I can only hope your eyes are wide open. For some of you, this may be a venture of your own. Now isn’t that worth investing time in! Spend some time creating a map of where you want to take this. Turn to a senior or mentor to take a look at the whole thing and offer solid advice.
Do you think you’re stuck in a rut? Like you’re pushing with all your will but things don’t seem to be moving forward. Stop for a second, Capricorn. What are you even struggling against? Often, we find ourselves in this state when we try to go against the flow. And really going with it is so much easier than it seems. As for the conflict with people around you? Simply stop resisting and ‘allow’. Soon you’ll realise your problems are actually minuscule.
O ye, Aquarius! It’s time to stop wandering. What if I told you that you were taken care of completely and totally, and that you’d have nothing to worry about? A father figure or a mentor plays an important role in your life. So if you’re looking for emotional support, solid advice, or simply kind words, his heart has infinite to offer. Through him, you will learn the art of giving unconditionally.
Running away seems easy at the onset, but how far can you go? If there’s one thing you should do this week, it’s to come face to face with your fears. Find a way to look that turbulence in the eye, Pisces. It’s okay to feel whatever it is that you’re feeling. And it’s certainly okay to feel vulnerable. What if in accepting this you find the secret to your strength?
