You might be feeling a bit down on your luck this week, but it’s time to adopt a different attitude. It isn’t what you’re doing or what happens to you that makes you unhappy, it’s what you think about it. Focus on the best aspects of the situation, and remember that the silver lining may not yet have revealed itself. Let your gut be your guide when facing a seemingly impossible decision.
A big opportunity is coming your way this week, but first you need to overcome the hurdles that stand in the way of a bright future. Tread carefully in your social affairs, as a misunderstanding among friends will take a long time to repair. Freedom and liberty are the key to improving your relationship with your partner: Give them space to pursue their own goals but, equally, allow them a place in your own.
Vanilla lovers lead vanilla lives. This week, throw convention to the wind and be a mint choc-chip person. Or lose your inhibitions entirely and be Rum n’ Raisin. Even those who choose the Rocky Road will find their way to success with a positive attitude and some determination. But remember that good things, like icecream, will melt away without focus and perseverance.
Things may not go to plan this week, but don’t waste time on anger. As Abraham Lincoln is though not to have said, we can either complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses. Not only will getting mad not improve your situation, it will also hurt those around you. Ask yourself what difference this small bump will make on the long road of life.
Gemini May 21 - June 20
The heat may be making life stressful but it’s nothing you can’t handle, so focus on those around you instead. They may not admit to needing your help, but you can see that things aren’t right. Have confidence in your ability to support others and act selflessly, though coming to their rescue will undoubtedly make you feel as good as they do.
Jealousy is an ugly and destructive trait. It cannot change the hearts of others – only yours. This week, have faith in yourself and your love, and don’t give in to envy and resentment. Take time to think about what it is you feel is missing from your own life: Is it really missing, or did you just not look closely enough? You already have the tools to get what you want – you just have to learn how to use them.
This week could turn out to be a game-changer, but you’ll need to tread carefully – not everything is destined to turn out as you’d like. A hidden desire will become a reality, but if you end up gaining at the expense of others, your heart could pay a price. While you may be a fan of change, remember that those around you may not be. Show understanding in your relationships and keep your feet on the ground.
Allow yourself to be guided by the heart as well as the mind this week, and an exciting new development will come your way. A challenge at work may knock your confidence, but stay true to your convictions and the success that results will bring a big morale boost. Accept the gifts of others with love and trust, and pay it forward with an act of love yourself.
Your personal and social affairs are well balanced this week, but it’s time to make some decisions on the professional front. If making money is your goal, you’ll be successful. But if its challenge and self-development you’re after, you’ll need to take some risks. Change may be uncomfortable, but no one ever got anywhere by standing in the same place. Take the plunge – you won’t regret it.
Scorpio Oct 23 - Nov 21
You have a tendency to over-dramatise your problems, but take some time out from thinking about yourself this week and do something to help others. Whether it’s helping that friend in need or doing something for your community, you’ll soon realise that your own troubles aren’t as great as they seem. Avoid gossip mongers toward the end of the week – they will come back to burn you.
Take some time out for self-reflection this week. Your key to success lies in discovering the truth about what you really want. Listing pros and cons is one way to look at things, but try not to let logic and reason be your only guide. Listen to your heart, as well as the hearts of those around you. But beware false counsel: Wolves in sheep’s clothing are not only found in fables.
It’s time to reassess. Is there still a possibility of achieving what you’ve been hoping for? If not, let go. Accept the situation and allow your newfound freedom to fuel your search for a new goal. But keep your options open and be wary of closing doors – leave them ajar instead. Don’t allow yourself to become stressed by your unclear future. Instead, see it as an opportunity to seek clarity.
