You know that feeling of coming home after a really long vacay? That! This week is about nostalgia. That feeling of familiarity. That feeling that you have a strong tribe waiting to love and support you at every step. If you’ve got love on your mind, there’s a good chance you may feel the sparks with somebody from your past or in your ‘friendly circle’. Perhaps, that cutie who left love notes in your textbook back in the day. If you don’t bump into him on Friday night, don’t forget that the virtual world is where all the action is!
Picture this: you’re at the party of the season and the world’s best bartenders are stirring up concoctions by the minute at the open bar. What would your first reaction be? Drink until you can’t tell the difference between your finger and your toes? But what if you wanted not a mimosa, but simply some chamomile and then be tucked into bed? This is a time to go within and soul search. What is being presented to you at the moment may be alluring as hell. But the question is: is that what you really want?
There are certain things we all constantly struggle with — it could be the art of organisation for some, learning to let go for other. And these trials and tribulations come to us at different points in our lives and in many forms. This week, what you most resist is likely to rear its ugly head. So what does that mean for you? A time for redressal. Observe the tension it is creating within yourself and resolve to resolve this one and for all. Ooh! Is that the sweet smell of freedom?
You know that feeling of taking the last piece of jewellery off, not because Coco Chanel said so, but simply because you felt like it’s simply ‘too much’. But what is too much anyway? And how gets to decide the appropriate standards of too much? Only you, lovely lady! Don’t dull your sparkle because other people don’t sparkle enough. You’re both beauty and brains. Smart girls don’t wear too much makeup, said nobody ever.
Tune into your soul, Leo. What is it that it that your soul yearns for? What is it that it truly desires? What flows through us effortlessly, giving us a huge sense of peace and love, is anything but random! What is this is the answer to the ‘purpose’ you’re looking for. So put on your dancing shoes. Bring out that canvas from the attic. Bake until your kitchen starts to look like an oven. Remember the world needs your gifts just as much as you do.
This week, you’re the fire of passion and creativity! Are you ready to make some magic? Things to introspect upon: what are your gifts, Virgo? What is your message to the world? Finding a way to channel this creativity to your highest potential. Find new avenues to express yourself or reinvent yourself within the given the constraint. Therein lies your nirvana, and your emotional and spiritual growth.
Are you a bohemian at heart? Do you love expressing yourself through movement and verse? Do your eyes light up at the sight of soul-stirring piece of art? Running off into the wilderness with nothing but a backpack, may be a bit overrated. Lady Libra likes her trunks. There are so many beautiful things waiting to be encountered. Use this as time for exploration both within and without.
Mental clarity, Scorpio! This week is about being a cutting edge version of yourself. Knowing exactly what you want and knowing how to get there. But does everybody really want to hear it as it is? Probably not. But that shouldn’t deter you from expressing the truth and fighting for what you believe in till the very end.
Sometimes the mere idea of getting out of bed seems like a monumental task. This week is likely to throw one challenge after another — ones that promise to ruffle more than a few feathers. What does this mean for you? An opportunity to throw out the redundant parts of you and emerge as a 2.0 version of yourself. Now, isn’t that the most liberating thing you’ve heard today?
No more playing it down, Capricorn. This week is about being living it large! Expect major breakthroughs in the area of money. You know that big, fat paycheque that was ‘lost in the mail’. Looks like it’s ready to find you now — as whatever is meant for you eventually will! For some of you this abundance may come through the family or the family business. Open your arms to this abundance. Be grateful for the security it brings into your life and that feeling of being ‘taken care of’.
You know that feeling, when things superficially seem to be in order, but they are unable to bring the happiness you are yearning for? There’s something unsettling within waiting to be addressed. Acknowledge the fact that a cycle has completed itself. Remind yourself it’s time to move on. Sure, the transit is easier said than done. It is likely to bring with it a sense of emotional loss. Allow yourself to cross the troubled river. Peace awaits your company with open arms.
Sure, we’ve all lost in love. But let’s take a moment to remember all that we’ve gained. Let go of the past, once and for all. Take a moment to listen to the sound of love. A brand new opportunity for union arises — one that’s both magical on a physical, emotional, and spiritual level! Allow yourself to explore this connect. Some of you may build a life together. Others may part ways at some point. But in the moment, this is what promises to nurture your soul. Oh, and the feeling of ‘home’ it promises to bring in.
