Surprise! Ends up you’re not the cruel, conniving biatch you thought you were. There’s that velvety softness about you that’s waiting to be revealed. The mother goddess who wants to love and nurture everybody and everything that crosses her path. You’re likely to swing between dreamy and poetic. So why not create some rose-tinted art while you’re at it? Or psychedelic, if you’d rather free love.
This week is about power and dominion — and the responsibility that comes with. Something tells me you take this responsibility very seriously. There are other lives at stake. The empire needs to be built, keeping in mind that everybody must benefit from it. The process of building towards the dream is of utmost importance. Remember the flipside of creation is destruction. That which comes in the way of the highest purpose, must be done away with.
Are you a living, breathing personification of freedom or merely an illusion of it? We defy some norms and then some more. Yet we find ourselves stuck in the same trap, over and over again. What seemed to free us, chains us down. Can we commit to the cause with our individuality intact? Can we love the love of our lives without sabotaging our wings? Remember it is you who defines the rules of your life. This is your chance to shed the layers and come into your own.
Is it war or merely a deadlock? This week, you may find yourself at odds with your coworkers, clients, or somebody you’re involved with in the work sphere. Don’t worry! There’s no bloodshed involved. Just some regular ego clashes. Recognise this pattern. Understand where they are operating from. And choose to step out from this vicious cycle. You don’t have to play Gandhi — unless, of course, you want to! But playing peaceful warrior will help you negotiate better.
You are the maker of your own destiny, fearless one! A fierce, independent women not to be messed with — in the bedroom, the boardroom, or on the streets. Your passion is your superpower. Use it to mate and create. We’re talking sacred sex, baby! Not wham-bam-bam. Remember that creativity and sexuality are closely related. When sexual energy rises to our higher chakras, it enhances our creative and artistic powers.
Ah! It’s that time of the month again. You’re ready to hang a ‘Do not disturb’ sign outside your bedroom, deactivate your social media accounts, take your phone off the hook (unless work dictates otherwise), and retreat into your beautiful burrow. You know that this is the only way to restore, rejuvenate, and make sense of the big time lessons you’ve had to learn. It is in this state of mind that you’re likely to have the most profound moments of realisation. Universe, bring on the light!
Ah the sweet smell of success! Bask in it a little and then some more. Work wise, you’re having a glorious week. You took full responsibility of a task assigned to you and you saw it through. Now learn something from your success, because baby, you’re just getting started. There are so many mountains waiting to be climbed by you!
Hidden patterns from the subconscious arise in the form of fear and insecurities. The question is: where are you operating from? There is a shadow side in every one of us — one that we cannot run away from. Confront the patterns standing before you and contemplate on what they’re trying to tell you about you. That’s the first step towards freeing yourself from their grip. Your intuition is working overtime too. Let it guide you in the process.
Cut your losses, Sagittarius. Depending on others to make you happy is only going to lead to further disappointment. And that, for you, is the real nemesis this week, as a person(s) you trusted with your life lets you down. Take some time off to learn and heal. When the time is right, re-emerge from your burrow and address the cause of your pain. If the person is question is a true and honest friend, they will understand where you’re coming from.
You’re done operating from a space of fear. This week, Capricorn gets what Capricorn wants. No, you don’t have to wage a war for it — simply learn to be assertive with a capital ‘A’. It’s only fair that you get what is in line with your highest purpose. When negotiating, be precise, firm, and fair. A well put-forth argument will have them kissing the ground beneath your feet.
O ye, beautiful and courageous one! You are you. And that is your superpower. Let not anybody take that away from you. It’s war time in Aquarius Land — and the nemesis may manifest in the form of circumstances, people who feel threatened by you (because they are not you!), and self-doubt. If you choose to ignore all of them, keep going, and stay in your power — victory is forever yours.
‘And this too shall pass’. That’s the all-knowing smile of one who understands the time and the tides. One who has mastered the ebb and the flow — and so the eccentricities of the world have no power over you. With the mundane out of the way, you’re focussing your energies on that which matters the most — your spirit. You already know the infinite power of your intuition. Now tap into it and let it guide you.
P.S. Your aloofness is adding to your allure.
