Weekend Herald - Canvas
ARIES (Mar 21-Apr 19): As you back away from a conflict, you’ll be heading toward the core of tranquillity inside yourself. It’s not something you have to develop either. It’s there, and has always been there, awaiting your return.
TAURUS (Apr 20-May 20): What does a weird pause mean? Is the other person uncomfortable, distracted or just unsure what goes next? Refrain from assumption. Push through.
GEMINI (May 21-Jun 21): Study what the others before you did. It will seem to take forever and then actually save you a lot of time. You won’t end up using it all. Figuring out what you don’t need – that’s the brilliant part.
CANCER (Jun 22-Jul 22): You’re on the receiving end simply because it’s your turn. Don’t overthink it. Get into gracious-mode and start appreciating this stuff and finding a place for it. Don’t worry about repayment yet.
LEO (Jul 23-Aug 22): The wise one doesn’t necessarily have all of the information. Because wisdom isn’t so much about holding on to a lot of true facts, as it is about knowing who to be.
VIRGO (Aug 23-Sep 22): The people sharing generous opinions could be generous in other ways, too, but do keep in mind that talk can be cheap, and supportive words are one of the easiest ways to share. Accept nothing less.
LIBRA (Sep 23-Oct 23): Down deep, no person wants to be compared to another, especially not in the “you look just like my cousin” kind of way. Don’t worry, you can find common ground and still be keen to discover the uniqueness of others.
SCORPIO (Oct 24-Nov 21): Just as fine art is often about placement, the art of our life (or just your weekend) will have to do with placing yourself in an interesting environment where relationships might develop.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22-Dec 21): History changes. A textbook from 10 years ago reads like it’s from a different world because it does come from a different world. Context changes everything, as will be well-illustrated today.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 19): It’s important to be very honest in your noticing of yourself. See what you’re good at. Be frank about what you’re not attracted to and what’s hard for you. The world needs you to lean into those qualities.
AQUARIUS (Jan 20-Feb 18): Tell the story about when the flame of passion ignited in you and you’ll feel it flicker again. Also, sprinkling elements of what’s new in with the old will change the colour of this fire.
PISCES (Feb 19-Mar 20): There’s a decision to be made, you’re the best one to make it, mostly because you’re the only one you can really trust to follow through on this. Decide, and then set up your system of accountability.
