As the New Year settles into its stride, use this week to take charge of your resolutions.

Practice mindfulness and self-care, and take charge of what is really important to you.

With 2022 well underway, it’s hard to not get lost in the blur and chaos of January, but if you make time to check in with yourself, this new beginning will pay off in spades.

♈ Aries (March 21st – April 19th)

It’s time to rethink your career goals and opportunities this week, as Mars barrels through your career zone.

Reevaluate if you are happy at work, and put all your energy into career success.

♉ Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)

This week will challenge you to pick up a hobby you once dropped, as you will find solace in creative outlets.

It’s time to re-find the magic and momentum you once lost, and keep your mind and soul enriched with the power of art.

♊ Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)

After feeling under-appreciated for all the hard work you do, this week will finally be the week of recognition.

You will feel seen, heard and acknowledged for all that you do, but don’t let this praise slow you down. Keep going!

♋ Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)

When it comes to close relationships, it’s time to set your boundaries and get a few things straightened out.

Lay the ground rules and make it known that you still have to put yourself first.

♌ Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)

It’s time to realise that forcing good things to happen is not the way to go.

Be strong, but subtle with your influence, and positive things will come your way if you put positive affirmations into the universe.

♍ Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)

Being at the right place at the right time can mean everything, and will open doors to learn new skills.

A burst of energy will point you in the right direction to finally make the big commitment you’ve been putting off, and will help to realise it’s not something to be afraid of.

♎ Libra (September 23rd – October 22nd)

Take time to make your abode into your dream space, and centre yourself in home comforts.

Do not let yourself be deluded by others this week, as this is a time to get in touch with yourself and tune out any negativity.

♏ Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st)

This week it’s not what you say, but how you say it that matters when trying to get your own way.

Being persuasive is an art, but being kind at the same time will get you even further.

♐ Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)

Others will turn to you for help this week, but remember that one’s charity can only go so far without being exploited.

Your get up and go attitude will help reign in new financial opportunities, forcing you to exercise restraint against your spending instincts.

♑ Capricorn (December 22nd – January 20th)

It’s time to realise that reevaluating your life is not dragging your heels; it’s taking charge of what’s working for you and what’s not.

The Sun and Venus will collide in your sign this week, giving your quest to be the best version of yourself a fiery push.

♒ Aquarius (January 21st – February 18th)

Dwelling on the past does not help propel you into new opportunities, but rather keeps you stagnant on what once was.

Let go of what’s been holding you back and focus on how past situations made you the person you are, rather than dwelling on what you’ve lost.

♓ Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)

Sometimes there are not enough hours in the day, leaving you feeling unfulfilled when having to put projects and relationships on hold.

Take it easy on yourself, and remember that what you love will always be there at the end of the day.
