The Big Picture:
Enjoy life in the slow lane this week. Venus moves into sentimental Cancer, so time spent reminiscing will be very beneficial. Meanwhile, Uranus turns retrograde. During this period, life is likely to feel less chaotic, with fewer nasty surprises. It’s a good time to take stock and to replenish energy and enthusiasm.
There is less pressure this week to prove yourself – a welcome relief. For a change, enjoy the tried, the tested and the comfortable. Be happy in your own skin and slow down the need and the drive to change all the time.
Let go of emotional baggage through therapy, creative arts or simply by talking it through with a trusted ally. Clear out the hurt and the anger and practice forgiveness – for your own sake, if not for others.
Friendships may be tested this week, but you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how loyal your friends are. Repay a debt of kindness that you have owed for some time now. Go out of your way to help, when others walk away.
Chaos at work seems to be subsiding a little, so you have some breathing space. Use this time to think ahead in your career. If you’ve been hoping to change direction altogether, this is a positive time to take the plunge.
Stop trying to “fit in”, or to please others. It’s time now to be who you are, unapologetically. If others have issues with you, that is very much their problem, not yours. Be proud of yourself, and stand tall this week.
For once, you can breathe easily financially. This week may not bring a lottery win, but it does help you to accept that you have “enough”, in all sense of the word. Take a less materialistic view going forwards.
There is a healing vibe around your relationship. Whether you have recently been through a tough time or not, you are becoming closer and gaining a better mutual understanding. It’s time to celebrate being in love, so look for the joy.
A calmer routine pays dividends, as you will feel less tired, more refreshed and happier all round. If you can work meditation into your daily life, so much the better. Practices such as yoga or mindfulness will also help to consolidate your wellbeing.
What begins as an impulsive flirtation could lead to something exciting – great news if you’re single, but potentially troublesome if you’re not! Be aware of the risks you taking. You’re a grown up and you can make this decision for yourself.
This week’s energy is about putting down roots. If you’re hoping to move house, circumstances may shift quickly now. If you’re settled where you are, explore how you can take a greater part in your local community.
Boredom isn’t likely to be a problem this week, but focus might be! You’re flitting from one project to the next, without actually finishing anything. Try to set a list of priorities – and be strict with yourself about completing them.
Politics and morality feature large in your life this week, and you may be having some very heated discussions. Look for areas where you agree with friends and family, and then build on that common ground. It doesn’t always have to end in a fight.
