As the Sun aligns with Jupiter in a powerful union, the theme of the week is managing your energy wisely.

These two planets radiate generosity and positivity, as well as devoting time to others.

However, the fear of overdoing your compassion can be a great threat to your own energy and preservation.

♈ Aries (March 21st – April 19th)

This week, rely on your instincts rather than logic to help get you through a difficult situation.

Use your thoughts and imagination to get creative, and don’t fight the impulses to go a little crazy.

♉ Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)

Talking things through to manifest them into reality can be a valuable tool in learning what you really want.

Your career will be best served from you taking the side of the underdog this week, as being underestimated will work in your favour.

♊ Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)

Stretch your boundaries this week, and don’t limit yourself to what you know or what is comfortable.

Change will only come from exploring outside your bubble of contentment.

♋ Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)

Your natural instinct this week will be to go into overdrive and feel the need to play problem solver.

Let yourself take a step back and consider if situations beyond your control are worth giving up your energy for.

♌ Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)

Details of a loose arrangement could come back to bite you if you don’t make your feelings crystal clear.

Fighting the urge to be the centre of attention could see new opportunities in your relationships blossom, but only if you can be vulnerable with yourself.

♍ Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)

If a relationship is needing reevaluation, talk to someone rather than about them, and don’t expect them to be a mind reader.

Stand your ground in difficult situations, and resist the urge to be creative with the truth to get your own way.

♎ Libra (September 23rd – October 22nd)

Check in with your health this week, and remember that wellness comes from all positive forms of self-care.

Showing yourself kindness will reciprocate in the universe, and good things will come your way.

♏ Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st)

Don’t let yourself get overwhelmed with seemingly impossible tasks, but instead rely on those around you willing to help.

Putting your energy into a talent or hobby that brings you joy will be time well spent, as you recharge in a creative way.

♐ Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)

Taking action towards an important change this week is the first step in realising your own power, and bettering yourself in the long run.

Surrounding yourself with friends and family will give you the freedom to be unapologetically yourself.

♑ Capricorn (December 22nd – January 20th)

The cosmos will grant you the power to initiate difficult family conversations this week, that could determine the future of your relationships.

A digital detox could help you see the world more clearly, and put things into perspective.

♒ Aquarius (January 21st – February 18th)

It’s a good week to reevaluate your values, taking into account what means the most to you in the world.

This self-reflection can be a valuable tool in dropping things that are weighing you down.

♓ Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)

Your motivation will be to help those around you in need this week, giving in to your caring sensibilities.

While your natural instinct is to step up and advocate for others, don’t forget to take the time and check in with yourself as well.
