Exciting times, Aries! As your inhibition level hits zero, you will discover a new set of wings — and with that a renewed sense of freedom. Past, be gone. The secret lies in treating every day as a new opportunity. You’ll find yourself taking more chances as you learn to live in the moment. The bad news is: a few things may not work out quite as expected. But there are plenty of blow-your-mind learning experiences coming your way.
There are many reasons for which we work — and money is certainly one of them. But what if you immersed yourself in your duties? What if you were guided by your heart and soul? You’ll notice the quality of the outcome improves manifold. Things at work are going to get more challenging than they have been in a long time. There’s going to be a lot of hard work to do. But when you look back, you will realise how this phase challenged you to learn more. Turning to a trusted mentor is sure to give you brand new insights.
This week, your hands are magic. Everything you touch turns into piece of art — much like yourself. How do you express yourself, Gemini? Whether you’re a multimedia artist or a judge, the answer to everything you’re seeking lies in your creative side. Your domestic goddess is likely to thrive in the kitchen, experimenting with dishes from all sorts of cuisines. Bring your best people together and spoil them with your love!
Just when you thought you thought you were on the right track, life threw a brand new curveball. Now think about: would life be any fun if it goes exactly the way you planned? Let’s pray for surprises, shall we? Even the not-so-pleasant ones that force us to reassess our lives. It’s okay if your plans are suddenly on hold. It’s okay if you can’t see the light ahead. Just remember, it’s all transient. What you learn from this pregnant pause is what will take you ahead.
How do you feel about love and abundance? Looks like the Universe wants to spoil you silly with both. Prospect of big money on the horizon — and there’s a good chance this money is coming from the family. Spend time with the loved ones. Partake in the merrymaking. Those involved in the family business are most likely to feel the prosperity.
Clichéd as it sounds, there are two side to every coin. A brand new opportunity presents itself on the work front — with the promise of much-needed intellectual stimulation. Behind it lurks a shadow that threatens to bring your dark side to the fore. Lying, cheating, manipulating, deceiving. But you’re so much better than this. Grab the opportunity before you, but not without thought. Making your intent clear from the very beginning will help you stay on the right track all along.
Playing it down is for rookies. Lady, you were born to shine. Your charismatic personality attracts many a fans. You’ll notice this at work and in the society. In love, you’re the nurturer and the seductress all rolled into one sexy human being. Can anybody resist your charm in this guise? If you’re yearning for commitment or long-term love, you’ll notice how your partner recognises the potential of a beautiful relationship and starts to look at you differently. For some of you, this may mean taking the leap towards welcoming a child.
Who wants a man who whispers sweet nothings, but turns on his heels as soon as it’s time to prove his love? As you mature, so do your expectations from what it takes to strengthen and maintain romantic bonds. At first you may disappointed at what seems like the lack of romance. Soon you will begin to appreciate the relationship for reliability and the solid foundation on which it grows.
Oh, flighty soul! Take your rebellious pants off. Turn the romance quotient a notch. Your practical side is begging to be heard. As boring as it sounds, the answer to winning at life lies in playing by the book. Work on bringing some order in your life. Why not create a priority list and swear by a schedule? And stick to it even if it takes all the strength in the world. You’ll be mighty surprised by the results.
Collaboration is the way of the future. Yes, you are magic, Capricorn. But what if somebody told you, you could increase the magical field around you many times over? Write your hopes, dreams and aspirations on paper — no matter how bizarre or unrealistic they seem. Find people who share your crazy and see what they can bring. Even within a conventional workspace, see how you can join forces with people who share the same vision as you.
Sometimes the mere idea of getting out of bed seems like a monumental task. This week is likely to throw one challenge after another. Muster up all the strength you can. You’re going to need it to stay afloat. As you do, you’ll discover a brand new threshold — and with that a 2.0 version of yourself.
When you keep things beyond their expiry dates, that’s when they begin to get toxic. What to focus on this week: recognising things that have served their purposes. Preparing yourself to let them go. This is one of the biggest lessons you will ever learn. At first you may feel like you’re losing your sense of purpose. Soon you will discover a new dawn.
