Choose your star sign
- Say ‘yes’ to change
- Release the past and surrender to the present
- Transformation takes you places
The energy symbolises the end of a major phase or aspect of your life. You realise it is no longer serving you, thus opening up the possibility of something far more valuable and essential. You must close one door to open another. You need to put the past behind you and part ways, ready to embrace new opportunities and possibilities—a time of significant transformation, change, and transition. You need to transform yourself and clear away the old to bring in the new.
Any change should be welcomed as a positive, cleansing force in your life. To reverse stagnating business fortunes, you will have to take some calculated risks to tackle the situation. Achievements and compliments you receive for good work on the professional front will motivate and encourage you to work harder. Don’t be afraid to own your real power and put it out into the world. You may feel like changing your job, but you may not be doing so because it offers security. You may also feel like shifting to having your own business. Be more pragmatic, plan things accordingly, and make your decisions as there can be optimistic outcomes to these actions as well.
Affirmation: “I know my higher self will guide me to the right decisions. I trust myself to make the best and right decision for me. I realize my potential and honour it by allowing myself to be uniquely me. I am worthy of love and all good things.”
Karmic Tip: The energy of intention and inspired action creates life. Making magic together with others is the focus of this time.
- Fulfilling a monumental goal
- Life comes to a full-circle
- Birthing new ideas into the world
You are in a period of growth, in which all you have dreamed of is now coming to fruition. You are surrounded by life’s pleasures and luxuries and have everything you need to live a comfortable lifestyle. This may be an actual pregnancy or childbirth or a symbolic ‘birth’ of a new idea or project. Everything has come together, and you are in the right place, doing the right thing, achieving what you have envisioned. You feel whole and complete. If you have not quite reached this point of completion, then you are very close!
It may surprise you to look back at your progress and see how much you achieved. This reflection may also be what you need to bring your project to its final stages so that you can move to the next brilliant one. You may be promoted within your organisation to take independent charge and head important divisions or people. You may be lucky enough to embark on a six-month overseas trip or would be working, studying, or living overseas for an extended period. The energy of this year reinforces universal understanding and global awareness. You will find a new appreciation for people and cultures from across the world. Your charm and wit will make you the centre of attraction on work projects.
Affirmation: “I am comfortable leading the way. I empower others through my actions and words. I am able to move forward and provide inspiration for myself and others.”
Karmic Tip: As you think, so shall you be!
- Prosperity and security are assured
- Taking care of the practical needs of work, home, and family
- Well established foundations to build on
You have worked hard to create abundance in your life, and now you can finally enjoy the fruits of your labour. Thanks to your independent efforts, self-confidence, and discipline, you have attained well-deserved success. You created a stable foundation for your material wealth and comfort. Now, sit back, relax, and enjoy the luxuries and pleasures of the good life – money, leisure time, fun, comfort, and rest. You deserve it! You will see an upswing in your earning potential, thus enabling you to clear long-standing dues or financial liabilities. You are encouraged to create abundance and independence so that you can take care of yourself in the long run. Invest wisely and seek financial advice to make the most of your wealth. Don’t rely on others to support you, depending on your resources.
For others, you may question whether you are ‘enough’ – whether your skills are valuable. You might ask yourself whether you can charge higher prices for your services, ask for a pay raise at work, and if you can attract the right people into your life. You may be under-charging for your services, working for free, or accepting a lower salary than you should. Be rest assured, you can demand more for yourself this year. Overall, you have used your financial prosperity to build a comfortable home environment and focus on investing time with your family as your wealth. Have a separate savings account or a long-term investment plan to ensure that you can take care of yourself if need be.
Affirmation: “I have clear access to my destiny. I am releasing myself from confusion and thinking clearly. I have total clarity in all areas of my life.”
Karmic Tip: Live life on your own terms, without people-pleasing.
- Fast-paced change
- Defending your position
- Freedom to move in any direction
Keep fighting for what you believe in. Stand firm, own your position and don’t change who you are to keep others happy. Map out any potential threats or risks before moving ahead with your plans. That way, you can have a ‘worst-case scenario’ plan ready to go for the year. Stand firm in your convictions this year. For some, struggles have now cleared, and you have the freedom to move forward once again. Determine what you want to manifest, and then align all of your resources and energy to focus on that singular goal.
Remove all distractions and devote yourself to career tasks with total concentration, determination, and will. This experience will be highly productive, allowing you to accomplish a lot in a short time. Ensure your activities align with your broader goals and invest in the right things at the right time. If you have been feeling stuck, do things differently (new routines, locations, activities) and get the energy moving once again. People in business will be able to expand their reach with new partnerships and projects. You are getting your life in order now. Be it physical health, emotional well-being, energy levels, or spirituality – you are in an excellent position to balance them all.
Affirmation: “I am safe and secure wherever I go. I am surrounded by loving energies, always.”
Karmic Tip: Trust that the universe has many ways of responding to your desires. What you seek can take a variety of forms.

- Courage & confidence get you through
- Re-evaluate your beliefs to transform negative patterns
- Free yourself from self-imposed restrictions
You are expressing yourself fully in your external world and you enjoy being the centre of attention. Stay fiercely determined and focused on your goals while being friendly and optimistic with those around you. Be bold in your undertakings and actions; you have so much to offer – so shine your light. Discover who you are and be courageous in expressing ‘you’ in everything you do, even if it is different from what others expect. Some of you will succeed in merging innovation and cutting edge technology into the existing enterprise. Others may find themselves trapped between the short-term pleasure they receive and the long-term pain they experience.
The path of instant gratification could be tempting, but it does not bode well for long-term gains. This year serves as an opportunity to bring the negative influences of your life into your conscious awareness, so you can then take action to free yourself from their hold. Shine your light on the low vibration beliefs that have been standing in your way for so long, and over time, you will loosen the grip they have on you. Confront your inner fears and anxieties to free yourself from the chains that bind you to your limiting beliefs and unhealthy attachments. Eliminate those things you know are harmful to you and your inner psyche. It may be about having a healthier diet, watching less television, quitting smoking, spending more time with your loved ones, or focusing more on your goals.
Affirmation: “I am perfectly grounded in the here and now. My grounding gives me the ability to think clearly and helps keep me focused on what is important to me.”
Karmic Tip: Release the endings, clear way for new beginnings.
- Financial independence arrives
- Creativity and passion for the win
- Keep the hustle going; make it fun
You are comfortable with who you are and happily express this part of yourself to others. You see new potential in allowing your creative juices to flow. Let your imagination and talent unfurl new possibilities. You have the power to share your inner radiance and positive energy, bringing great happiness to those around you. And you will find that the more you give, the more you receive on multiple levels. A creative offer could be presented to you; allow yourself to receive it. This year is about creating abundance and independence so that you can take care of yourself in the long run.
Joint venture and partnerships are likely to get dissolved or not take off as expected, causing an initial setback. However, self-employment or working independently will be better for some of you. Do not be scared to splurge, indulge, or pamper yourself, especially as a reward for all of the hard work you were putting in, especially last year. Treat yourself to a special occasion or a personal gift to celebrate your journey here. You have already achieved so much! While you may not be at the finish line just yet, this year is your opportunity to acknowledge all achievements and make it fun even with the hard work.
Affirmation: “My business is growing and expanding every day. Creative energies surge through my being, leading to brilliant ideas and moments of genius. My dreams are manifested into reality.”
Karmic Tip: Be hopeful and inspired by life, as this year points to a renewed sense of encouragement.
- Building foundations for the long haul
- Supportive guidance and protection
- New learning and development will lead to progress
Suppose you have already mastered a particular field of study. In that case, you may be taking on the role of a teacher and mentoring others. In this position, you honour and acknowledge your responsibility of sharing your knowledge in a structured way; one that respects the age-old traditions. You will be better off following convention and staying within the bounds of a ‘tried and tested’ model. You are not yet willing to go out on a limb or offer any new and innovative ideas. Instead, you adhere to the fundamental principles and rules that you know will lead to a successful result.
Those looking to switch fields and start a business can do so only after gaining the required skills. This is an excellent time to pursue higher education. Employment opportunities look bright, and you are willing to put in the work. You will be full of good ideas and your choice of activities will bring positive results far beyond expectations. Stick by the rules this year, and victory will be yours. You may have recently changed your work, education, or financial circumstances; you will certainly do well if you have recently joined a new organisation. You are applying your sheer determination and concentration to master the new skills you are learning. You are diligent and hard-working, and you are applying yourself fully to whatever is at the center of your attention. Your need for perfection may be getting in the way of your ability to adapt. Be flexible to changes along the way if they come along.
Affirmation: “I am willing to forgive and free myself from the past. I know the events of the past were to help me evolve spiritually. I am now free with increased knowledge and wisdom gained from these experiences.”
Karmic Tip: Resist the temptation to avoid challenges as your passion can push all obstacles aside. Shine!
- Get the wheels in motion
- Be open to discovering where your inner talents lie
- Clarity: knowing what you want
You may be on the verge of a significant breakthrough or a new way of thinking that allows you to view the world with clear eyes. Or, you may have a sudden realisation or conscious understanding about an issue that has been troubling you, and you can finally see the path ahead of you. There will be some power entrusted to you this year; you will need a healthy heart and mind to best use your ability to serve others and yourself. The road ahead may be bumpy, and you can expect challenges along the way. Maintain a ‘success’ mindset, and you will be able to navigate these hurdles with ease.
For some, you may have too many ideas on the go, and you cannot commit to one course of action. This year invites you to spend more time defining what you want in life in understandable terms. The more ambitious may set up their own enterprise and turn it into success in no time. This is an excellent time to start new projects, pursue different approaches, or learn varied skills. This year’s career goals will require your intellect, communication skills, and mental power. You have so much energy that you feel as though you could do almost anything – and you can! The challenge, however, is whether you can keep up the pace. A cheerful state of mind would help you keep a steady check on health. You are also very much in the exploratory phase and not mastery. You may be prone to making mistakes along the way, but your curiosity means that you are eager to learn from your slip-ups.
Affirmation for the year: “I am open and receptive to new avenues of income. I am an unlimited being, accepting from an unlimited source. All my needs are abundantly met, now and always.”
Karmic Tip: All your needs are met even though you cannot see it in the outer visible world yet. Patience!
You Might Also Like
- Compromise is key
- Look for win-win solutions to all problems
- Make the status-quo exciting
You have to find ways to compromise and see eye-to-eye on work projects this year to gain the best results. Conflict, tension, and disagreements should be tackled with tact, forgiveness, and honesty. You are ready to move forward with your life and create positive change. Bring your energy back within, and ground yourself. Come back to that beautiful, soulful person you are, leaving past mistakes behind. There could be options to choose from on the work front. Both possibilities may seem equally good – or bad – and you are stumped about it, leading you to the best outcome. You must be able to weigh the pros and cons of each choice and then make a conscious judgment.
Use your head (your mind and the intellect) and your heart (your feelings and intuition) to choose the path that is most in alignment with your higher self. Some of you will get the opportunity to head the ambitious project that your company is undertaking; you will lead teams exceptionally well. For others, you may need to temporarily cut off from the external world to hear your inner voice and allow your wisdom to come through. Trust what you know to be accurate and right for you. Make decisions based on your internal compass. Look out for the highest interests of all to take the best course of action. This year might not be the time to try new ventures, move to other locations, or invest in a business. Instead, focus on safeguarding what you have already created.
Affirmation: “I align with my soul with divine will and justice serves me throughout time. I give thanks for the perfect outcome that is manifesting for me in response to the divine will of the universe.”
Karmic Tip: Stay optimistic about turning dreams into reality, follow your heart.
- A giant leap in career and finances comes about
- Claim your power, now
- Be a conscious leader
You have a clear vision of where you want to go. Get ready to manifest that vision with the support of those around you. Others naturally gravitate towards you because you are charismatic, focused, and determined, and they believe in you and your vision. They want to be a part of what you are manifesting and are here to support you one hundred per cent of the way. This year reminds you to lead your life with intent and a long-term vision. You have a grand idea of what is truly possible, and you will stop at nothing to see it through.
Do not waste your time on activities or relationships you believe will lead nowhere. Instead of going with the flow, embark on a direct and robust course of action. An opportunity is presenting itself to you, and you now have the power to take on the challenge. You are the determining factor in this situation. If you want it to be successful, it will be. Entrepreneurs seeking capital will get necessary funds on easy terms. Form the ability to be part of a team and deliver what is expected of you! Stay true to what’s essential, and keep focused on your vision and direction. Expand your career or chosen profession with ideas, learnings, and long term plans.
Affirmation: “My body and energy fields are in total balance. Staying balanced keeps me in my personal power…I feel aligned.”
Karmic Tip: Recognise the many forms of abundance in your life and align yourself with success.
- Shift to the prosperity mindset
- Investments, business, career advancements
- You have enough if you look closely
The energies reflect permanence and a lasting foundation for future success. It is a card of commitment to a sustainable future, taking into consideration the short-term gains of a particular venture and the long-term benefits. A consistent approach will bring the success that will last the test of time. For some, it’s time to question and review financial/career motives. Ex: It may sound good on paper or might be what is expected of you, but is it what YOU want? Your home life is happy, and you can provide your family with the security they need. You are also strongly connected to your family history and heritage, a part of the long lineage that goes before you. Stay true to you & your traditions and work on projects accordingly.
For some, even though things aren’t going your way, new opportunities and possibilities are waiting for you – but only when you are ready. It’s time to shift your mindset and focus on what can go right from this point onwards. Be open to the brighter side of life and know many blessings are in disguise right now. Instead of giving in to a ‘glass is half empty’ perspective, look at it as the ‘glass is half full’. It’s time to cut your losses, learn from past mistakes, and move on. Good news about property investments, family wealth, legacies, and pension could come about for you or someone in your family.
Affirmation: “I feel calm and centred. I am more than what bothers me. I enhance my energy levels by releasing any worry and anxiety I have stored. Positive outcomes and solutions support me.”
Karmic Tip: Let the adventure of discovery energise you.
- Exploring uncharted territories
- Moving towards creating financial stability
- Take the first step; the staircase will appear
You fear you don’t have enough, or you may lose something important to you – even if it hasn’t happened yet or is unlikely. Instead, redirect your attention to what you have now and what you want in the future. Finally, you can see a way out of your financial difficulties, and your hope is renewed. This year could significantly see an end to difficult times if you have recently suffered a significant financial hit or job loss. Hard work from the previous year will bring good fortune. You may find new sources of income, a new job, or someone who has offered to help you out while you get back on your feet. You may be contemplating overseas travel, further education, or a significant career switch to expand your horizons beyond your immediate environment. With careful planning and a moderated approach, you will set yourself up for success.
You may choose between sticking with what you know and taking a risk. You understand the world has something more significant or more meaningful to offer you. Yet, you also realise that you must leave familiar grounds to capitalise on this opportunity. You went through the discovery phase and know what you want to manifest – now you need to figure out how. You are exploring your options and carefully plotting the path ahead, accounting for all possibilities and potential challenges. You are open to growth and exploring new territories.
Affirmation: “I allow new people and situations to love and support me. I accept help and advice with gratitude. I trust that the universe will bring uplifting situations in my life.”
Karmic Tip: Reflect on your inner desires to have a clear perspective on everything in your life.
