The week ahead, #4

By Petra Papadopoulos on September 27th, 2013

Aries

20 March – 19 April

Aries.svgTimes were you felt the need to Instagram, Frontback and Snapchat every aspect of your life. This week, your priorities will change. Live in the moment, don’t try and capture it, and you’ll discover an entirely new way to encode your most precious memories. Destiny is laughing at someone scanning a QR code on the subway.

Taurus

19 April – 20 May

225px-Taurus.svgYou might feel the sudden urge for a shopping spree this week. Think ahead. Can you afford it? If not, delete the eBay and Amazon apps. Focus your efforts on more valuable tasks such as redoing your OkCupid profile. Destiny is unfollowing reality television stars.

Gemini

20 May – 21 June

Gemini.svgOn Wednesday, your colleagues will suggest a new method of working in the office. Decline to participate. Remember that you remain the master of your own fate, and that includes the visibility of your holiday albums on Facebook. Destiny is spotting a YouTube star in real life.

Cancer

21 June – 22 July

Cancer.svgThe answer to most questions this week is: perhaps. But don’t let that stop you from making hard choices. Thursday will see you make an important decision that has ramifications for your family. Think carefully about how far you are willing to risk their happiness for a new toy. Destiny is shaking her head.

Leo

22 July – 22 August

Leo.svgIn hindsight you’d probably be happy to admit that your time at college wasn’t spent in the most productive manner possible. On Tuesday you’ll be given a golden opportunity to right past wrongs. Don’t hesitate in seizing it. Destiny is blowing up an inflatable doll.

Virgo

22 August – 22 September

Virgo.svgThere’s no use crying over spilt milk, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t review your past mistakes once in a while. A recent error that left a coworker scratching his head was an opportunity to learn that privacy settings really matter. Destiny is hesitating over an off-switch.

Libra

22 September – 23 October

Libra.svgI won’t lie to you: the entire coming week will be a challenge. Lean on close friends old and new to get you through, and remember that the challenges you’re facing will be over by Thursday night. It’ll be an abrupt end to the trauma, if you get there in one piece. Destiny’s card has been declined.

Scorpio

23 October – 22 November

Scorpio.svgTo avoid a sticky situation on Sunday afternoon, don’t put off telling a friend how you really feel. It’s better in the long run. There are things about the situation you don’t know that make radical honesty by far the best policy. Just don’t end the friendship on Facebook. Destiny is trying on wedding dresses.

Sagittarius

22 November – 21 December

Sagittarius.svgBe careful on Wednesday, because an individual who has so far restricted their affections to the online world is about to come across you in real life. Don’t agree to on-the-spot friend requests: you’ll regret it bitterly in the morning. Destiny wants to know who moved her cheese.

Capricorn

21 December – 20 January

Capricorn.svgWhy have HTC when you can have Samsung? This week you’ll be forced to choose between quality and expediency. Don’t be tempted into making short-termist decisions that will jeopardise your ability to work from home. You’re about to be spending a lot more time there. Destiny is updating her profile on WAYN.com.

Aquarius

20 January – 18 February

Aquarius.svgIf only this were easier. But it isn’t. Your partner needs to know that you are more important that the video game, which is why you should take drastic and perhaps theatrical steps to get your point across this week. It’s the only way to save your relationship – that’s assuming you want to. Destiny is refreshing the page.

Pisces

18 February – 20 March

Pisces.svgDo not agree to any long trips this week: you’ll be disappointed by what you find and you can’t afford to let things slide at home. Do what you should have been doing all along, and delegate. Destiny is tracing the letter G.
