Energy Theme of the Week: Be in the moment. Act spontaneously and discover who you really are. You can surprise yourself with the things that you’re capable of — good or bad. Own that part of yourself, then wield it to your advantage.
(Pardon the absence of pictures this week.)

Are you feeling cheated at work? Perhaps an argument or negotiation did not go your way? Or perhaps you won the battle, but the victory seems empty now? There are opportunities available to you to increase your material security but it seems like they won’t fulfil you at an emotional level. Do you need a little bit of ‘something different’ in your life? Well, now is a great time to explore new creative activities/outlets and find ways to incorporate them into your daily life.
This is also a good time to revisit your definition of success, recalibrate your goals and make joyfulness a priority.
Weekly Card: 9 of Swords (Reversed)
Have fears, unnamed or real, been keeping you up at night? Sleep restless no more my dear! It looks like some kind of emotional/ego validation will help you feel better this week. Perhaps the trying/tiring period you just went through was meant to help you appreciate the smaller blessings around. Taurus tend to have very specific demands from life, so they are often unable to appreciate the ‘half-full’ glasses around. But that will change.
This is also a great time to take a risk or two on romance or a creative endeavour. Perhaps the need to get out of your head will compel you to do just that? Don’t worry, be happy!

There’s a lot of stubbornness and quibbling going on in your life, is it? You’re surprised at one particularly juvenile individual who is just not able to appreciate your (very logical) point of view. Differences in opinion or approach towards certain matters (you want to go slow vs. they want to act without thinking) is causing unrest on the domestic front.
May be it is time you tried to see things someone else’s way. As Mercury-ruled air signs, Gemini can err on the side of being too cut and dry, not taking emotional factors into account. Cultivate and spread some warm and fuzzy feelings…it might just turn things around!
Weekly Card: 5 of Pentacles (Reversed)
It’s good news week! If you’ve been feeling under the weather, or impoverished by lack of opportunities, things are going to change soon. Just as the wheel of fortune goes down sometimes, so must it come back up again. Things will slowly be on the upswing for you now. Just make sure you do not dwell on the past or feed your anxiety about the future. Stay in the moment. Stay alert to tiny (or big) windows of opportunity that begin to open around you.
Misery loves company they say. But there comes a time when you must leave those foul-weather friends behind who have a permanent case of the blues. Cancers can be psychic sponges to the mood of those around them. Keep joyful company!

Confusion abounds in nearly every area of your life. Every aspect seems to be influencing the other. And most of all, you now want to feel fulfilled. But you’re caught between two options when it comes to endeavours (romantic or creative) and don’t know which to choose. Plus, you’re being safety-oriented to the point of being stuck, like the Fixed sign you are. There is a need for fresh starts in your professional sphere but it’s somehow being dampened by your feelings. Most importantly, you seem to be following norms, rules and mores that are no longer relevant to your life.
Me thinks it’s time for you to take charge, make some tough decisions and break free. No one said life was going to be all easy, breezy…
Weekly Card: The Moon
Jumper Cards: 8 of Wands (Reversed) and Ace of Cups (Reversed)
A slow pace of communication or action has prevented a new emotional beginning from gushing forth. But it’s all good! Venus is currently one sign behind you, in your 12th house of psychological issues, past baggage, fears, blockages, addictions and enforced isolation. It’s a good time for you to get in touch with your inner motivations and intuition to make sure whatever you’re investing your time and feelings in is actually right for you. Also, this gives you time to detox your mind of any lingering issues from the past.
If information on any situation with a lover, enemy, colleague, contractual partner etc. has been evading you, that too may come to light.
With the Moon card showing an eclipse, I am tempted to say you will have clarity on a way forward by the time of the upcoming lunar eclipse on 28th. Let me know if something changes.

People on the outside probably see you have it all — A picket-fenced house and a perfect family; snazzy wheels, a delicious arm candy, and bank balance to envy. But you’re not feeling the awesomeness, are you? What’s off in your picture perfect world? Is there a part of yourself that you have ignored all this while? Is there a passion you left by the wayside? Or is it that for the sake of keeping up appearances you’re in a job/relationship/location that just does not make you feel nurtured?
Stability is an awesome thing to have, but certainly not a reward to die for. Don’t kill parts of yourself just because you’re ‘too old’ (read too scared) to take risks. Think about it.

Sound management of personal finances (independent of another) are going to assume quite a bit of importance in the coming years. (Because Saturn will demand order here). So this week you could fall in one of two camps. Either you’ve got expenses mounting — payouts for joint investments as well as expenditure on social gatherings, or you’re being tight-fisted and not making the most of investment opportunities being presented to you. Moderation is the solution to every conundrum. Time to draw up a healthy budget which takes into account your need for pleasure and leisure as well as serious saving.
Our attitude towards money also reflects our attitude towards love. So neither be parsimonious nor be over generous that you may feel cheated or deprived at any stage.
Weekly Card: Knight of Wands (Reversed)
You were about to embark on a new start in some area of your life but it looks like your progress has been slowed. With Saturn now in your sign for the next couple of years, you will encounter situations that demand that you take it slow. One thoughtful, considered step at a time is how Saturn likes it. But rest assured, any grand visions you have for your future (in any and every area of your life) will be realized. All you need to do is curb your enthusiasm a bit and also take the time out to stop and smell the roses on your way back from a healthy exercise routine.
The more balanced you are in every aspect, the better the results will be. Slow and steady does indeed win! 🙂

There is a LOT of action in your future: Forward movement in plans and a possible happy change in residence or domestic arrangement. However, you might be plagued a little by niggling fears/hesitations, plus your intuition right now may be off. So before you embark on anything new, rest a while. Or rather, rest your mind and avoid over-thinking things. Focus on the here and now and on day-to-day actions that advance your desired plans, albeit in small ways.
Take special note of your dreams and see if there is a recurring theme that might point to psychological issues you need to deal with.
Weekly Card: 5 of Pentacles
Are you feeling poorly or miserable for some reason? Feeling left out in the cold? Aquarius famously have large circles of friends — this might be a good time to get in touch with them and take comfort in their presence. Quite a bit of the misery in your life right now has a direct correlation with a narrow vision. Have you stagnated in the past few years? Is there a new direction you can take? New types of people you need to meet? Have you done anything lately that you’ve never done before?
Try something new, expand your horizons, because that’s where a window of opportunity is lit up for you.
Weekly Card: 8 of Cups (Reversed)
Jumper Cards: Strength (Reversed), Judgement, 3 of Cups
You were ready to move on from something (a long-term relationship/job/living situation/lifestyle) but something has given you pause. You need to think through all your options, project into the future and have a clear roadmap in front of you before you make the break. The good news is, you have the inner resources (talent and energy) to move forward. You also have the support of friends and your own faith in the future to propel you. Just pay a little heed to your logical mind and do not take action based on how you’re feeling.
A new era awaits you surely. Just think your way through.
