Here’s what the ancient Tarot cards have to say about your Sun sign for this week:
Aries (Mar 21 Apr 19)
Be careful of wishful thinking and do pause and consider before you make a choice. Setting clear priorities will help you tide this phase of temporary confusion when you may find it hard to choose and decide. Frequent reality checks or just a chat with a practical-minded soul should help clear any doubts. Self-employed Ariens may attract many financial opportunities but be sure to weigh the pros and cons before signing the dotted line. Some offers may seem too good to be true, or someone may be exaggerating the benefits. Patience goes a long way.
Taurus (Apr 20- May 20)`
Hold on a little longer. You may be tempted to give it all up and start afresh. Or the responsibilities pile up and leave you a little overwhelmed. Ask for assistance, and take things one step at a time. By opening your mind to what the other person is going through or trying to say, you could resolve a long-standing problem or reach a win-win agreement. Travel plans could be made at a moment’s notice or an unexpected visitor from far away suddenly reconnects. Happiness comes from being in the present moment and appreciating life’s little blessings.
Gemini (May21- June 20)
Stay organised and stay assertive. If you want to get your point across, make sure your facts are clear and you use your head over your heart. Resistance may come from people who don’t want to adapt and change. Or you may find yourself persuading someone to be a little less rigid in their approach. Push yourself to do better and you’ll soon see results and opportunities, especially in competitive exams and interviews. Money matters proceed smoothly and startups and businesses may look at expansion. Think big and big things can happen.
Cancer (June 21 July 22)
Watch those moods. One minute you could be feeling affectionate towards everyone, and the next minute they’re all be annoying you. Take a little time out to ground and centre yourself. Too many interactions may be overwhelming and a little quiet time will help bring back the balance. Plans for promotions and presentations get crystallised especially for Cancerians in creative fields or the Media. Don’t compromise your values or ethics on someone else’s unreasonable demands. Be patient in matters of health, allow your body to adjust to a new line of treatment.
Leo (July 23- Aug 22)
Your calendar fills up with a lot of events and activities. Expect a celebration or a reason to get together with loved ones. A good week to celebrate being who you are and acknowledge all those who love you for your uniqueness and your big heart. Your mind may not be at work or study, and it’s okay to take a short break from the daily routine. And while you’re in this mode of enjoying the good life, you may even share your feelings with a special someone. Money matters show an upward swing, and gains can come from the most unexpected of sources. One tip, moderation is always a good thing, especially in food and drink.
Virgo (Aug 23- Sept 22)
If you’ve been doing far more than necessary or if someone has simply begun to take you for granted, this week sees you say no more. Relief comes when you share responsibilities, delegate and set clear boundaries. Minor reshuffles and restructuring may be required if you want to be more efficient. Expect minor bouts of stress and tension as you get used to a new routine, pattern, place or project. The main thing is to focus your energies and commit yourself to a new direction. Meditation and Yoga bring deep peace.
Libra (Sept 23- Oct 22)
New activities. New encounters. A beautiful break from routine is possible if you make it happen. Your mind is alert and alive to new possibilities and, with the mood you’re in, you may even make a few important life changes or decisions this week. At work you may surprise yourself and others by demonstrating skills or coming up with an innovative idea. Relationships get interesting as you seek out and connect with people who aren’t usually your type or are a little offbeat. Enjoy the fresh energies while they last as the changes could be very beneficial in the long term.
Scorpio (Oct 23- Nov21)
Alliances, collaborations and teamwork. It’s all about who you know and how well you get along together. Agreements and contracts signed in this phase bring promise of long-term association and prosperity. Just don’t get so lost in numbers that you forget family and friends. Make it a week to end old disagreements and resolve old misunderstandings. Property matters proceed smoothly and plans may surface to relocate. With your sharp mind and eye for detail, you could spot a hidden opportunity or solve a mystery. And nobody loves mysteries and secrets more than a Scorpion!
Sagittarius (Nov 22- Dec 21)
Too many thoughts but no direction. Your energies may be a little scattered with little focus. Sleep patterns may go a little haywire or someone may stress you out with their repeated delays. When you realise it’s beyond your control, you relax and let go. An old acquaintance may reach out for a favour. And if you’ve been looking for a change, this period could bring interviews and offer letters. Just be mindful in matters of mental and physical health, slow down when it gets too much.
Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan19)
Something that looked so promising may turn out to be a total let down. Someone may promise but disappear or not live up to their words. Someone may no longer wish to stay in touch with you. Let go and restart. Change may be uncomfortable initially, but once you adapt, things slowly get better. Marriages may require more quality time and if you’ve been too busy for your spouse or family of late, a good week to show them some love and pampering. In health matters, you should consider natural therapies or changing your diet.
Aquarius (Jan 20- Feb 18)
Keep the faith. Keep going. And don’t allow the disappointments to deter you, especially if you know how much you’ve been slogging but just aren’t seeing the desired results. A good week to learn patience and detachment. Destress with some much needed quiet time away from the bustle and the crowd. Heart to heart conversations with trusted souls bring relief and a reminder of just how special you are.
Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20)
Inspiration comes from the words of a mature woman. A good week to clarify doubts and sort out a few issues with the help of advisors who should get you back on track again. A large event or project may take more time than anticipated. Good news on the financial front brings much needed relief and a greater sense of security as you start acting on your ideas and executing your projects. A good week to express love and gratitude to loved ones and honour the memory of departed souls who send blessings your way.
