This week Ursula K. Le Guin’s quote “The creative adult is the child who has survived” comes to mind. It doesn’t matter if you’re slaving away in the IT department or helping people with their finances for a living. Do it with creativity. Tap into that beautiful ‘right side’ energy. You will not only start to enjoy what you’re doing, but also transform it immensely. Find a way to pull out all the creative projects that you have stalled or put on hold for ‘practical’ reasons, and get in touch with the child inside.
Where do you want your finances to be in, say, 10 years from now? Now that your goal is set, it’s time for step #2 aka the road map. A bright, beautiful opportunity is about to manifest with the possibility of taking you towards that goal. You know what you do have to do, Taurus! Accept it with open arms and gratitude, and start working towards it. A practical approach will certainly help up the game. For some of you, this may mean starting something brand new, for others, a new and exciting step (giant leap) within an familiar territory.
How do you feel about authority, Gemini? This week, somebody in a position of authority — possibly your leader or boss — is likely to give an impetus to your career goals by showing their unwavering support, This could come to you in many forms — for instance, a kick*ss business idea or financial backing. For those starting out on their own, this could possibly mean a father figure in the family. Be open and receiving. What comes your way could alter the course of your career forever — and in the best way possible!
Are you in the midst of a conflict or merely the illusion thereof? Another question to ask yourself at this point is whether or not what you’re fighting for is worth the upheaval? The thing is, there is no real problem. You seem to have convinced yourself that people are against you and trying to undermine you in whatever way they can. A good thing to do at this point would be to think of a larger goal — what you’re collectively working towards — and align yourself with it. The mundane differences will automatically get resolved.
We set our own limitations, Leo. How do you feel about your relationships at the moment or a certain relationship that is your prime focus? Do you feel like you’re being restricted in certain ways? Like you’re not being able to be who you really are? Self-limiting beliefs, Leo. Be brutally honest with yourself. Write them down one by one. Things that you are convinced are against you. The thing you believe in will not turn in your favour, no matter how hard you try. Now watch this paper burn and make epic changes in your life.
We get what we believe we deserve. So, what if we tweaked this limiting belief system a little and turned things around? Here’s the thing, Virgo. The Universe wants to supersize your meal. So get ready to receive it with open arms. You’re likely to feel the abundance in every aspect of your life — whether it is in terms of material possessions or love. There’s also a certain sense of harmony, which is bringing you closer to the family. Bask in the feeling that everything you need is right here.
Holy trinity, Libra! Three is your magic number this week. Make it about you + your two best people. Or lovers if you prefer threesomes! Teehee. As such you’re quite social right now, with many a reason to celebrate. Hey, I’m having a good hair day is one too! So go with the flow of it all, flutter around from group to group, get to know as many people as you can, and have your set of fun. Don’t be surprised if you end up huddling with your besties at the end of the night. Just remember not to get lost in the superficialities. There’s much more depth to you than meets the eye. Even in terms of work and creative ventures, join forces with those you sense a connect.
Escapism is an easy route for you right now, especially considering your circumstances. But is shoving unsettled matters under the carpet the best idea? Look them in the eye, Scorpio. Allow yourself to fully feel the depth of these emotions. What you’re running away from is what needs to be resolved the most. This is also a good chance for you to reassess relationships that are causing this inner turmoil. Truth and honesty are an integral part of this equation. Are relationships worth keeping when this goes missing?
At the risk of sounding like a corny commercial, it’s time to build dreams, Sagittarius. What is it that you aspire to achieve in terms of your career? Yes, you have an infinite reservoir of skill and knowledge. But so does everybody, and theirs could vary vastly from yours. Recognise these differences and find a way to amalgamate them. This could be the missing link to what you’re working on!
Get back in the game, Capricorn! Your career needs your attention right now. A new opportunity presents itself with the possibility of great payback. For some of you, this may translate into going after a project of your own. How are you going to take this forward in the best possible way? Something for you to mull over right now. Just remember to stay grounded all the while. Practicality is the key to taking winning decisions. For some of you, this week may also bring the news of a promotion of raise. Show your potential to the fullest.
The universe giveth and taketh away. Looks like the latter applies to you right now. It’s not always going to be rainbows and butterflies, Aquarius. You may experience a sudden change of fate. The lingering feeling that things are not working out. But here’s the thing about hardships, they challenge you to push yourself to your very limits, thereby challenging you to discover your limitless capabilities. Contrary to what it seems, there are people who care deeply about you. Don’t hesitate to ask for help.
Here’s the thing about transitions, they’re not always easy and often cause more than minor disturbances. But they’re also mandatory. They help you finish a cycle, ergo embarking upon a brand new one. Feel the storm, but don’t allow yourself to get caught up in it. Once you start trusting what’s happening around you, you will realise it is actually happening for the best.
