Whether you're about to celebrate your birthday, or have months to wait until your special day, this week's horoscope makes fascinating reading.
If you thought your horoscope could only tell you about your personality - or who you ought to date - you were wrong.
Because your zodiac can also tell you a lot of other interesting little titbits as well. Think your ideal alcoholic beverage and dream engagement ring, for starters.
Your star sign can also help you to plan for the week ahead - if you know how to read it, that is. Thank goodness, then, for Closer astrologer Yasmin Boland, who has examined the stars of the zodiac to bring you your VERY detailed weekly horoscope.
If it's your birthday this week
For the year ahead, take time out to do some contemplating and meditating inwardly, rather than only focusing on your outward life. Commit to having the tricky conversations you need to have with the people who matter most to you.
In many ways, the pressure is coming off you this week and any impending doom you may have felt should start to lift. However, it’s not a licence to go back to sleep, metaphorically speaking. Rather, use this week to blast through your worries and fears. Healthy mind, healthy life.
Think about the people you spend most of your time with. As you know, they rub off on us. Are you spending your time with people who make you feel like a better person, or just filling your social calendar for the sake of it? Take a close look at those around you and get rid of any frenemies.
If you blew your professional life up recently, now is the chance to resurrect it. Think of yourself as the phoenix rising from the ashes and you’ll get the best of the astrology currently on offer to you. Avoid bullies around the workplace though. Also, don’t be a bully yourself!
It’s time for you to blast away outdated beliefs and life philosophies. You may feel a strong urge to explore new ways of thinking, or even be drawn to mystical or esoteric teachings. Follow those feelings! Now is the time to reshape your world view. If your mind’s not open, it’s shut.
Problems you’ve had around the subjects of sex and money can’t be swept under the carpet forever. As Pluto re- emerges in your Sex and Money Zone, it’s time to resolve issues that are spoiling your finances or intimate life. Dig deep emotionally.
Just when you thought you’d moved away from those impassioned relationship moments, here comes Pluto ready to give you one last chance to experience the magic of love. If you don’t learn your love lessons now, it could soon be too late! Do rectify past mistakes. Don’t be manipulative.
A very long time in the recent past, detox was one of your favourite keywords. So did you detox? Your life? Your home? Your health? Your working situation? If not, you are being given one more chance to do that properly. It will change your life. Make detoxing a priority.
All of your most important life lessons are coming from your most important relationships right now. That can be heavy going and it might feel that your love life has frozen over a little bit lately. Happily, this week, you can light the fire that will melt the relationship frost. Be loving.
Your home and personal life has been a hot bed of eruptions over the past few years. Hopefully what you’re now left with is a much less toxic situation. If you didn’t really get rid of all the negativity at home though, you’re getting one more chance now. Release the past.
You need to understand that your thoughts create your life. That’s a lesson that’s been coming your way for the past few years. Have you been paying attention? If not, then start to pay attention now! Your word is your magical wand, so to speak. Thoughts become things.
On some level, you’ve probably accepted that you need to detox your financial situation, or at least the way you think about it. If not now, then when? Use the re-emergence of Pluto in your Money Box this week to get rid of financial habits that are doing you damage. Spend wisely.
This week the planet of power and eruptions, Pluto, reverses back into your sign. It’s one of the best things that could possibly happen to you and now is the time to face up to your shadow. Deal with it properly for better results for the rest of your life! Come to terms with your dark side.
