You might think everything is over and you’re through, but the situation will change again – the truth will come to light. But do try and avoid being led by impulses.

#Aquarius: it is possible you will have to cater to the needs of others more often than your own this week. The truth can be hard, but it’s still better than lies. Be honest with yourself – there are things that don’t make you happy as much as you want. Nothing will change if you don’t do anything!

#Pisces: your mind blocks your thoughts and the road to new beginnings. Try to free yourself of needless thoughts and you will see positive changes. Although you’re not used to it, you will have to grab the bull by its horns. Take care and try reconnecting with your soul and mind more closely.
