Mercury Retrograde what? This month continues the fiery energy as you find yourself in the final stages of a project that’s bound to bring equivalent returns. Better yet the completion of this will also open doors to a whole new world of projects and ideas. For all the hard work you’ve put in expect the recognition and praise that you so rightly deserve.
The energy for Taurus this week is shifty at best, there’s a general ambiguity in where you are right now which is also clouding your vision on where you want to go. The key here is to not let anxiety get to you because this isn’t a phase of stagnation rather a time to re-evaluate your path and goals. The remedy: surround yourself with inspiration, watch documentaries on the visionaries, see who’s doing what you want and find out how to get there.
This week Gemini takes on the role of the leader, fighting for a cause you truly believe in. It’s about the intent, the desire to bring about a change, whether it’s something small like a policy at work – casual fridays are the best we agree – or whether it is in support of a larger movement fighting violence or harassment. You find yourself in a position where people will listen so make sure you voice it out.
This week Cancer shakes off the dust and puts things into action, stop waiting for them to happen. Step onto the proverbial chariot and ride it down the path of glory because change is best effected when done consciously you don’t want to feel like you’re just passively allowing it to happen to you. Take control and steer yourself towards your dream goals.
New year, same old mistakes, Leo? The time has come to recognise your bad habits and understand which behaviour patterns are working against you. Whether this is something you’re doing at home, at work, or even in your relationship it’s best to check yourself before someone else does. Figure out how best to resolve the situation before it becomes a full blown conflict.
It’s all coming up roses for Virgo this week because everything you’ve been working towards is now paying off. Whether it’s gaining instagram followers, or achieving that ultimate sense of fulfilment you should prepare yourself for a sign from the universe that you’re on the right track. If anyone has wronged you in the past, trust in the equivalent exchange of energy and know that they will get their dues and so will you.
For Libra this is a week of travel, taking your project places it potentially hasn’t been before. Sometimes it’s at the end of one project that we find ourselves facing a host of other opportunities, so this is the time to be bold with your choices. Plan a trip overseas, showcase your craft where it deserves to be.
Oh Scorpio, this time it really might be true love! After a revolving door series of comes-and-goes the time is right for you to make a deeper connection with your partner. The key here is while the energy is there and electric nothing happens unless you make it happen! Don’t expect the fruit of love to fall into your lap because everyone likes to be made to feel special sometimes.
This week Sagittarius runs into a time of suspended activity, of limbo, hitting the proverbial funk. This is less a time to fret over inaction but more a chance to re-evaluate where you are. Do you think you’re still perfectly aligned with your goals? Or is there someone around you who’s distracting you from the hard work you need to put in to see your vision come alive? For some inspiration, we recommend a weekend of meditation (in the hills maybe?)
This season make like spring and turn your life around Capricorn, from your attitude towards life to giving your bedroom a makeover this is a time that calls for change. There’s a reason why you’re feeling caught between a rock and a hard place and that’s a sign that you need to revamp your approach to things – especially on the work front. It’s better to be a stickler for the rules than come off unprofessional.
Okay Aquarius this week is about taking those big decisions you’ve been brushing back. And no, we don’t mean taking a chance and shaving your beard or cutting your hair super short, this is about taking risks, signing up for projects you can’t back out of. This is also a time when you must accept responsibility for your actions – serving a timely reminder that you must be more mindful or the decisions you make.
This week Pisces is bound to feel grumpy because there are unexpected and rather sudden changes on the horizon. This might leave you thrown off balance, feeling shocked at the turn of events but it’s important to not give in to the self-indulgent feeling that life is particularly turning against you. This is a sign that you need to re-shift your focus, steer yourself back onto the track that ultimately serves your best interests before you’re too far down the wrong road.
