Make your health a priority this week. Everything else shall follow. Yes, even that client who seems to have taken over your life and the friend who is going through a terrible break up. More often than not, we already have an inkling that something is wrong, but like to pretend that it will go away on its own. Tune into your being. What part of your body is calling for your attention right now? If you’re certain there’s no trouble in paradise, indulge in some TLC instead. Book yourself a spa appointment or go to your local Ayurvedic centre for some good ol’ abhyanga. How about exchanging a back rub with your partner before a night of cosmic dancing?
It is only when disaster strikes that we’re forced to sit down and talk to ourselves about our outmoded identities. What is that part of ourselves that we must let go, in order to start afresh? Often fear, insecurity, and self-doubt prevent us from living to our fullest potential. Welcome utter and complete chaos — and then, like a sexy phoenix, rise afresh from the ashes. Your new-found strength and acceptance will first surprise you, and then the world.
A Gemini gets what a Gemini wants — even if that means having to pick up the sword. How to emerge victorious? Study your enemy thoroughly before you enter war zone. Preempt his every move. Watch yourself just as closely. You don’t want to give your opponent anything to use against you. Wear your unyielding belief in yourself like an armour. In the realm of work, beware of those trying to malign you. Getting your points in order and checking facts will help you in the boardroom.
Pull out that canvas from the attic, Cancer! This week is about surrendering to the flow of creativity. What is it that is waiting to be born from within you? Nurture this divine energy. Share your expression with the world. You’ll find that this process not only brings deep satisfaction, but also heals you and makes you feel whole again.
You’re a goddess inside out! This week is about honouring that divinity within. Your experiences in the recent past may seem like a sudden jolt of awakening, forcing you to pick up pace and hold the space of growth for yourself. Like you’ve had to grow up a 100 years in a span of just 10 days! But the fact that you survived goes to show the immense strength that you have within. Let the voice of the wise goddess inside guide you through this tumultuous change.
What are your greatest woes, Virgo? Write them down one by one, and after you do, surrender them to the Universe. Something magical is about to happen. When you wake up tomorrow, you’ll have expanded so much that all of these so-called issues will seem minuscule in comparison. This is a period of great cosmic cleansing for you. Allow yourself to be healed in the process.
You may be a lover of all things fine, but superficial you are not! While you fit perfectly into ‘the world’, there’s a part of you that’s yearning for the wild. In the literal sense of things, you may be tempted to pack your bag and make a spontaneous trip that soothes both your heart and your eyes. Tired of feeling like you’re in a rut? Find the courage to make a life-changing decision that will allow you the relentless pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.
You, my dear Scorpio, are emanating the energy of the divine mother! The nurturer and the protector. There’s always place on your table and in your heart. You may find yourself lending a listening ear your to loved ones — sharing their woes like they’re your own — and providing rock-solid support in the midst of the chaos. But there’s one more person who needs your unconditional love and that person is you, you, you! Remember that the more you fill your own cup, the more you can give to others.
You may find yourself in the midst of chaos — physically and emotionally — making you feel like there is no way out of this. But everything is, in fact, in divine order! Know that you are completely taken care of by the Universe. As you start to internalise this belief, you will find creative solutions to all your woes. Keep emanating these good vibes, Sagittarius. The winds of change are blowing in favour of you.
Come partake in the feast, Capricorn! The most gorgeous delicacies await. This week is about opening the door to abundance — enjoying all the good things that life has to offer. This is also a period of fruition, as things you’ve put your heart and soul into finally take a life form. Share your gift of abundance with others. The more you give, the more you get. P.S. You’re going to thoroughly enjoy playing Martha Stewart this week.
This week, you’re the very epitome of love! The more you give, the more you attract. And this love we speak of is no ordinary love. There’s a together forever waiting to be written. So open your heart and mind to the idea of commitment. Build a relationship based on harmony and trust. There is no greater joy than that of divine union. Let the Universe iron out any glitches that may come up along the way.
Writer’s block is so last season. This week is about making a breakthrough in the realm of creative expression. Let your passion become the driving force. Pull out all the projects you stalled because you didn’t believe enough in yourself. The world deserves to witness your magic. Let this creativity flow into other areas of your life. You’ll find solutions to all your woes.
