Being a fire sign, you are able to take action relatively easily
– although you may tend to be impulsive and make rash moves. Luckily, this week, you should find the going fairly straight-forward – as long as you avoid conflict and recklessness, especially at home and regarding negotiations. A matter to do with your past, work or health will merit care and attention. The Sun and Mars in Leo will certainly motivate you to try a new approach in your personal life – and for some, at work. If your usual attitude in these areas has simply not worked, it is now time for something new. However, your energy and motivation may be mistaken as bravado and arrogance by those who know you less well, so show your charming side, too, to avoid mix-ups. Being a dynamic character, you are always ready to rise to the occasion. This week’s events will ask that you step up to help someone, either at work, with a health or a family matter. Luckily, you’ll be in a position to help. If there is a difference of opinions about what is the right thing to do; about what is fair and just, avoid taking random comments personally; aim for a solution. Can you charm everyone into seeing things your way? Probably not, but you can lead by example, and show others less gifted than you in the art of persuasion, that the wisdom of your way is faultless. However, it’s important to avoid being forceful or feeling pressured; disagreements will escalate. If you owe money or a favour, pay it back as soon as possible to avoid resentment. Your focus may change in your inner circle; perhaps someone moves away and you must approach those you know with a new attitude; or someone new enters your circle, for example. You’ll find, in any case, that an upbeat, friendly attitude will work wonders, especially when disagreements at work or at home threaten to disturb your peace of mind – or that of others. As a practical, realistic and methodical person, you like to take things step by step in your arrangements with others.
However, this week, it seems you may be under pressure to decide upon a course of action, or to side with someone – either at work or at home. How will you get ahead most diplomatically? You’re allowed to change your mind; just be sure it’s what you want.
A circumstance that puts you in a new light may seem a little outside your comfort zone and yet, if you stick with your ideas, you could make great progress this week, especially in your relationships and collaborations, such as those at work. Avoid believing you’re always right – but, by the same token, trust that you are right when you are. Have the courage of your convictions.
Your sign’s ruler, Venus will come into a harsh aspect with Wounded Healer Chiron, suggesting you may be asked to help someone, or may benefit from support yourself. Someone close may be surprisingly helpful to you. If your health has been under the weather, this is a good week to spend time shoring up your wellbeing and fitness. Avoid: conflict at work or at home.
Your sign’s ruler, Uranus, will turn retrograde this week, suggesting some events may lead you to reconsider how you feel about domestic, family and property-related matters. If you’re particularly spiritual, you may experience an enlightening or reinvigorating event. A change of pace could be ideal. Avoid allowing a disagreement to dent your self-esteem; be bold.
Work will take you places this week; it’s a case of being on the ball and accepting that, sometimes, life is either super-busy, or it serves up a lemon. If you feel you have in some way been let down consider that, in actual fact, events in your life will motivate you to do something refreshingly different. This will offer an opportunity to enter new territory. Rise to the challenge.
Key discussions this week, especially to do with health, work or finances, are best navigated carefully, as there is the potential for misunderstandings and/or frayed tempers, especially this weekend and towards Thursday. This aside, the more action you take to pursue the path and goals you’ve set yourself, the better for you. If not, those around you may simply take charge.
Consider whether, in the past, you have procrastinated, or have even avoided taking direct or spontaneous action - preferring, instead, to consider your options carefully and perhaps for a long time. This week, though, the key to success lies in trusting that the actions you will take will be for the best. Trust your gut instinct to gain direction, especially at work and health-wise.
