What is that you turn to when it all comes tumbling down? Some people like to burn themselves in unrequited love. Others turn to cigarettes. Do you really need these things? That’s a good question to ask. Second, identify where these self-destructive feelings are stemming from. Only then will they be gone!
What’s making you roar this week? Your invincible strength! Life is likely to throw a curveball or three your way — just when you think you sort of have it all figured out. This will push you to challenge yourself and your opponent in ways you did not imagine possible. Bring your inner Samurai to light. Every breath you take is making you stronger.
Haven’t had the time to catch your breath? On the outside, it may seem like there’s a lot going on. Responsibilities at work seem to have increased manifold — and with that, the burden of delivery. Stepping in when work needs you the most is quite a commendable quality to have. But are you taking on more than you can handle? And, more importantly, is this even your job? Be brutally honest with yourself, and then whomsoever it may concern.
Take a good look at your finances, love. Do you have as much as you yearn for? There’s a good chance you’ve managed to amass a little more than that. Now think about all the comforts you aspire to possess. What’s stopping you from getting your hand on that stunning pair of amethyst earrings? Or that one-of-a-kind Oriental cushion? What’s the point of material wealth if it can’t render you the comforts you deserve?
It’s time to acknowledge all the amazing people in our lives and their contribution towards us — from the friend who listens to you mourn about your lover at 3 in the morning to the cook who puts nourishing food in your plate, day after day. Wrap them in a big, fat hug (a virtual one if they live far away) and tell them how much you love them. It’s your turn to put a smile on their face.
Have you been thinking about starting something of your own? Lady, the cards are on your side. Keep the day job if you have to, but sow the seeds of the new project you have in mind. In due course of time, you will be able to switch your focus to what matters the most-est! For some of you, the proposition may be well within your realm of work. Whatever it is, take that leap. This is a smart investment with results that will surprise you manifold.
What is it that you wish to achieve and are you out to get it all costs? Passion, drive and motivation is a lethal combination to have if it pushes you to do things that you normally wouldn’t. When you’re tempted to step on somebody to get ahead of the game, put yourself in their shoes for a minute. At the same time, beware of haters and cheaters. Be on your guard always and protect confidential information. Things are so fishy this week. You don’t who is out to salt your game.
This week, you’re the mother of creativity. Everything you touch will turn to gold. For a lot of you, home improvement is a big priority this week — a space that reflects your fine taste. Your wardrobe too, is majorly reflecting this sense of luxe aesthetics. Use it to make an impression in social circles and impress the ‘big wigs’. In realm of work too, let your love for beauty transform the mundane. In terms of love, allow yourself to be spoiled silly.
Want to hear something cheesy? What doesn’t break you only makes you stronger. Oh, the subtle grin on your face and you realise how these words ring true! Surrender yourself to the healing energy as it wraps you up in a warm embrace. Old wounds, if any, will start to fade as you see the larger picture of why things happened the way they did. Channel this peaceful, positive energy into your work and to show some love to the people around you.
Oh, the sweet smell of triumph! 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. Not everybody is going to be your best friend, sweety. While there are people who appreciate and respect your contribution, there will be some who parade as foes. So keep your eyes focused on the prize, and don’t forget that the game isn’t over.
Baby, it’s all about communication! A major truth comes to light. Your challenge lies in how you deal with it — and, more importantly, how you convey what you feel about this. Hearing the truth isn’t easy. Neither is talking about it. But once you accept it fully, you’re likely to see major life changes. Remember this is not a matter of the heart. Remember to think sharp and logical through the process.
Courage and creativity. Now isn’t that an intoxicating combination! Your ideas, no matter how bizarre, have the power to change the world. Being a closet poet is for rookies. Find the courage to express yourself fully and dazzle with your charm. Time is not an excuse, pretty Pisces! You can make time for creative ventures even after work. Put a pen to paper, grab a mike, or hop onto the dance floor — whatever it takes to get that beautiful energy flowing!
