Mannaz. You are especially attuned to the energies of other people this week, Aries. There is a strong independent aura surrounding you at the same time, which may cause people to come to you for help. Offering support to those who need it will come easily to you, but you may have limited patience. Remember to balance empathy alongside tough love. This is the perfect time to come together with others and simply enjoy the human experience, the beautiful and the ugly alike. Do not cling to anyone too closely – just enjoy each other whilst it feels right, with respect.
Fehu. You are surrounded by abundance, Taurus. It is important to remain grateful for both the material and the intangible. Tell your friends you appreciate them and tell your significant other you love them a little more often than usual. If you experience any sudden feelings of joy, recognise them actively and savour them a moment longer. A new, permanent, and fundamental change is approaching. Keep your eyes wide open – you have the inner strength to face anything, as long as you practice acceptance and gratitude. There is nothing you can’t handle.
Thurisaz. Always use protection, Gemini – make sure you are not taking unnecessary risks. This week is loaded with fiery energy, and it’s only going to get hotter. You may feel like you need to let your hair down after a period of self-discipline and routine, and you’re right – but don’t go full steam ahead until next week. There is always a danger of getting lost in the moment – as beautiful as it is, passion can cloud your judgement. There is no reward without risk, but there are ways of minimising it. Stay safe and have all the fun you deserve!
Berkana. A new beginning is on its way, Cancer. Approach the already established and newer, blossoming relationships in your life with the same, nurturing energy. There is nothing better than giving love and receiving it tenfold in return. If you’re feeling a little broody, tap into your maternal side this week. You tend to care very deeply about the people you trust – don’t let your intensity of emotion and your fear of letting people in hold you back from embracing positive new presences into your life. It’s okay if it takes you a little longer.
Kenaz. You’re living up to your reputation this week, Leo. This week, you tap into the power in your core with joy and ease. You may be coming out of a period of stagnation, but the time to act is fast approaching. Tie up any loose ends before the end of the week to make sure you’re able to fully enjoy the abundance that is coming your way. You are in a good position to enter into a new romantic connection right now – just be careful not to overindulge to the point where you neglect all else.
Eihwaz. Let go of what no longer serves you, Virgo. Working on your relationships is a necessary and strengthening practice but you must listen to your gut in the process. Wearing shoes that are too small for you will give you blisters, no matter if it’s your favourite pair. If you’ve outgrown something, let it go with grace and set that intention before the end of this week, even if you don’t act right away. Patience and resolution are key. You are more in touch with your intuition than you may think.
Sowilo. Slowly but surely, you are uncovering the parts of yourself that needed more acceptance. This is the perfect time to engage in some shadow work. Write down everything that feels it needs to come to the surface and keep judgement out of the equation. Creating a safe space for yourself to explore the grey zones is the only way you can find true clarity. Everything is scarier in the dark, so shine a light. It’s not quite the right time to become romantically involved – make sure you can be vulnerable with yourself before you can do the same with another person.
Jera. The fruits of your labour are about to pay off, Scorpio. Life is cyclical, but momentum is eternal. Take pride in what you have achieved in the last few weeks and give yourself a small break. Just don’t get too comfortable. You’ve reached a rest stop, not the destination. If you’ve been working on yourself, celebrate the small victories but remember that nobody is ever finished with learning – life has a way of humbling us. Top tip: if you can, switch off your phone completely for a day. It will quiet your mind enough for you to catch your breath.
Ansuz. Now is not the time to look outwards for validation. Romantic partners should enhance the life you already have, not become the sole centre of your world. This week, your connection with your spiritual side is especially strong. If you seek guidance on something you can’t figure out for yourself, ask the universe and wait for a response. Simply observing how you react to signs intuitively will tell you exactly what you need to know. Remember: you always have the last word when it comes to forming your own opinions, so don’t be afraid to open your mind.
Dagaz. You may be undergoing an awakening, Capricorn. Although change can be scary sometimes – especially when it affects how we see ourselves – embracing positive transformation can be incredibly liberating. Try looking at the world through the eyes of a child. Finding awe and appreciation for the little things can make even the greyest day beautiful. You can be strong and hopeful at the same time. Never give into cynicism – putting your heart on the line is necessary sometimes. Give people the benefit of the doubt before they give you a reason to distrust them, and don’t judge one person by another’s mistakes.
Nauthiz. Are your needs being met, Aquarius? Remember: health is holistic. We feel our best when physical, mental, and sexual energies are balanced. This doesn’t mean perfection – just the right amount of abundance and absence. If you’re feeling off-kilter, know that this is just a natural recalibration. Set aside a quiet hour to get in touch with your sexual side this week. What works best for you? If you’re in a relationship, show your partner how they can help deepen your connection – it will bring them joy, too. If you’re single, use this opportunity to honour and learn about your body.
Sowilo. This week you are full of vital life force. Enjoy the wind in your back but treat your energy with the respect it deserves. Don’t give too much of yourself to people or situations that don’t appreciate it. Emotional investment is necessary for every of commitment, but too much of it will drain you. Spend some extra time doing things for yourself this week, to counterbalance the intensity of your relationships. Top tip: go for a solo meal – you don’t need an excuse to take yourself on a date. You are worthy, Pisces, so make sure you remind yourself more often.
