This, right here, what you’re sitting on, is a pot of gold! Recognise your talents. Your skill set. Your superpowers. Use that to your advantage. You’d be a resource to any organisation you aspire to be a part of it. So, go after what you believe! And don’t sell yourself short.
Has plan A served you well? If not, it’s time for a reboot! Yes, we’re always fearful of change because it implies stepping into the unknown. If you look at it as a case of a known evil vs an unknown one, you’ll never be able to move. The opportunity being presented offers both expansion and growth. Is it time for a career switch or to look at new avenues within your field of work? The scope is limitless. So push the envelope a little and then some more.
Defences down, Gemini! Cupid’s arrow strikes just where it is supposed to, rendering a new chapter of love. The playfulness with which you approach matters of the heart is truly a strength. It evokes that feeling of first love. So how will you make your special someone feel like a special someone? A candlelight dinner in the middle of nowhere or weekend getaway that feeds wanderlust? It’s all about being creative—and allowing this creativity to flow into everything you do. Never a dull day with Gemini around!
This week is about practicing the fine art of balance. Guilty of clocking in too many hours at work with little or no time for self-rejuvenation? Time to get a handle on that work-life balance! Spending too many hours in front of the television? Bring that yoga mat out of the closet. Speaking strictly work wise, you may be required to handle parallel responsibilities or manage a personal project alongside your regular day job. Be a multitasking extraordinaire. Do what multitasking extraordinaires do.
Allow yourself to first be consumed by the flames of desire! And then transformed by the very fire that consumes you. Often we do the mistake of thinking the heart and body are separate. But the heart feels what the body experiences, and body acts upon what the heart desires. Within each of us is a deep desire to melt and merge. What if sex is but a sacred act that heals us and opens the gateway of love?
This full moon is about emerging shanti-shanti from life’s many storms. You’ve seen the lowest of the lows, Virgo. Yet you found insane amounts of courage to pull it all together just when everything was falling apart. This is when the Universe shelters you and gives you the gift of serenity and calm. Allow yourself to heal and let go. Open yourself to all the good stuff life has in store.
What do you want from your career — an opportunity to globetrot, a cheat code that helps you make money even as you sleep, security, power, perks, or a lot more of the shiny stuff? It all begins from that space of clarity — being brutally honest to yourself first and then with the people involved about your needs and wants. The Universe is sure to respond to your vibrations. And, oh baby, you’ll love what it has to offer!
Turn the television down, Scorpio. It’s time to tap into your inner landscape. Tune into the frequency of the wise woman within. Why do we look outside when the answers we seek are already within us? Learn to trust yourself a little more. In due course of time, you’ll know that these were the best decisions you made. Have your own deck of cards? Make some time to introspect, meditate, connect with the tarot, or any other sacred tool of divination.
It’s one of those weeks — the rent still needs to be paid, except you’ve had no time to retrieve your payments. After all, you were dealing with a heartbreak. And your best friend decided to move halfway across the world. You feel like you’re going to fall apart any minute now, except you’re not. The fact that you’ve come this far is proof of the infinite courage and strength within you. While struggle has been your bedfellow for a while, this is when you finally break loose. It’s okay to be vulnerable. It’s okay to ask for help and support, especially from the ones you love. This is the final fight. It all goes up from here.
You’re a fiery one this week! You have the gift of passion and the power of creation. The full moon is fanning your flames, Capricorn. Use this energy for the highest good. Allow it to help manifest your dreams and desires. Give the projects that have been slow to take off that extra push. Be the b*tch who gets sh*t done.
Your superpower this week: your resourcefulness. What do you need to do to build that Aquarian empire? Start with a solid foundation. Know what you are investing in. That every penny matters. ‘Course knowing where to get maximum returns is just as important as cutting your losses. You’ll be grateful for what you have created, in terms of wealth, when you look back. P.S. Stingy and nifty exist on opposite ends of the spectrum.
After having swung to the extremes, the pendulum comes back to centre. This is who you inherently are, Pisces. The epitome of peace and calm. You’ve experienced the magic of retreating to the inner world and the pleasures of the outer world. Do they conflict with each other? Nay! They co-exist in the most harmonious way possible. Your superpower this week: being a Buddha while being in the world.
