Here's what the ancient Tarot cards have to say about your Sun sign for this week:
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
Life is all about give and take and it’s time to express gratitude for who and what’s in your life. Shifting your perspective from what you don’t have to the blessings that surround you allows you to attract abundance. Work matters may keep you busy juggling between meetings and multiple demands. Staying organised is the key to your success in the coming period. Money matters show high potential. And an old friend may reach out for a favour. Just be mindful about eating nutritionally balanced meals. You’re going to need your energy in the days ahead.
Taurus (Apr 20- May 20)
You feel like letting go of a lot that’s been weighing you down. And there’s no better time than now to begin a detox. From social media, bad habits and relationships that are turning toxic. You may feel like decluttering your wardrobe. Or just letting go of a whole lot of things you no longer need. Any form of alternative therapies will bring relief. Work may involve dealing with a lot of bureaucracy or signing a lot of documents and you may feel like walking away. Property matters related to rent, transfer and sale may take longer than anticipated but you will be relieved when it’s done.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
If you don’t ask you will never know. If you don’t tell, they will keep guessing. Deep, heartfelt communication is highlighted in the days ahead. And you won’t be satisfied with superficial connections and answers. Your probing mind will seek out the truth to something that’s been bothering you for a while. Expect to brainstorm ideas and in the process build new trusted allies at the workplace with the most unlikely people. Self-employed Geminis strengthen the trust of their old customers and work towards improving customer services. In the home front, things get back to order and you find yourself adjusting to a new routine rather easily. Watch out for overindulging in too many desserts or rich food.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Upskill, upgrade and reinvent yourself. Your mind is sharp and ready to absorb new knowledge. A wonderful phase begins for students who have the chance to excel in this phase. Even at work you may feel like taking a short course or think about certifications. Go for it. And if you can’t find the time to study, how about taking a mentoring role with someone who could do with your experience? Travel plans could get finalised, or you could consider upgrading your phone. Time to move forward with the times dear Cancerian, and it’s all about opening your mind and embracing the unknown.
Leo (July 23- Aug 22)
If you’ve been holding on too tight, the cards urge you to let go. Time to release the baggage and the resentments that are building up. If people have let you down, perhaps you expected too much from them. If forgiveness seems impossible right now, how about a little detachment. Overthinking will not bring answers and only tire you in the process. Pleasant surprises could come from an unexpected job offer, a business lead or the reappearance of someone you knew a long time ago. Romantically you may find yourself thinking about an ex-flame, or even reach out to find out how they are. Health matters show steady progress. And you may give up a bad habit forever.
Virgo (Aug 23- Sept 22)
When was the last time you let your hair down and just had fun? Too much work and very little play may be draining you. Or you could find yourself too serious and solemn with Life’s responsibilities. The cards urge you to take time out to reconnect with your inner self, or your inner child. Time spent with young children and pets refreshes your soul like no other. A good phase begins to pursue a creative hobby, or rekindle your creative spark. And no one is stopping you. Go for it. You’ll probably wish you’d done it sooner.
Libra (Sept 23- Oct 22)
Be prepared for sudden changes at the workplace and in relationships. Resisting the new ways will only lead to stress and you may have no choice but to just go with the flow and accept whatever and whoever has changed. A young man may irritate you or trigger you with his immature responses. Or you may feel like you’ve been trapped in an inescapable situation or swamped with unnecessary duties and obligations. Realise the feeling is temporary and things should settle down soon. A relationship that showed promise suddenly goes quiet, or you discover that both of you have different values altogether. If it all gets to much, just detach for a while and focus on your soul.
Scorpio (Oct 23- Nov21)
Pat yourself on the back. You’ve come so far and it’s time to acknowledge and celebrate your journey. Praise may come from unexpected sources. But you’re now at a place where you don’t need anyone else’s approval but your own. Your own self-worth is dependent on you. Work matters show great progress and dialogues with key people could lead to a promotion or increase in responsibilities. Even at home, you breathe a sigh of relief as a pending job is completed. You may look at renovating your home or buying a new car soon. Enjoy this phase dear Scorpion, you deserve it.
Sagittarius (Nov 22- Dec 21)
You are never deprived when someone else gains. Time to share credit, give praise and recognition where it’s due. Without expectation of anything in return. The card of karma assures you that you get what you give. Acts of charity and voluntary service only adds to your blessings. Or you may feel like signing up for a cause you feel strongly for. Creativity may be heightened and you could find yourself coming up with some great new ideas especially if you are in media, entertainment or content creation. Emotional bonds get stronger with a special someone as trust begins to grow. The more love you give, the more you receive.
Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan19)
Your soul needs attention. Perhaps you’ve been doing too much for everyone else and little for yourself. Or you begin to feel drained by the daily demands on your time and energy. Take a little time out for self-care. Say No to those who take far more than they give back. Set some boundaries. A pending project may be delayed or you may need to put up with a fickle client or boss who just can’t make up his mind. Before you explode, disconnect for a while. Quiet time spent by yourself helps heal. Be mindful about your health in this phase, the stress and exhaustion could tire you.
Aquarius (Jan 20- Feb 18)
Be extra vigilant with your ideas, your possessions and your documents. Dishonesty surrounds you and someone may try to deceive you in the subtlest manner possible. Before you trust someone blindly pause and reflect on your gut feel. If something doesn’t feel right, it isn’t. A loved one may test your trust and you may feel let down by someone who promised much more than they delivered. Be realistic in your dealings and expectations with people and you won’t break your heart. Health matters show healing as long as you are honest with yourself and your doctor.
Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20)
Exciting times ahead. Your mind will be opened by news ideas and experiences. A chance encounter with a stranger could change your views about something forever. A young person takes centre stage in your life. You could find yourself thinking about furthering your education or taking a weekend workshop to upgrade your skills. Your health is good and your energy levels high. Remember to share your optimism with others and make someone’s day by spreading your happiness and enthusiasm. You are being blessed for all your kindness and good deeds. Time to pay it forward.
