The blue of “I can do it, about 1/10 of what I can do, cooperate” was on. As a new year begins and “Let’s start something new and exciting! I sometimes felt that I did not know what to do with my feelings. That is not your fault, first of all. At times like this, please take your time and think, “I’m not going to let myself be defeated vs. helplessness by giving what little help I can, in whatever way I can, to something. It really is only as much as you can afford to do. For example, you can do something to “support” or “cooperate” with someone who is trying to encourage you, even if it’s just to watch with them. It can be a way to cheer yourself up. Do what you can do for the people around you. Even if it’s only 1/10th of what you normally do, it’s okay. For those who have already given “support” and “cooperation,” thank you very much.
There was a brown on the “where it doesn’t work, it’s fine as is.” This week Taurus is apt to have a kind of “ideas challenge. You may be asked, “What shall we do about this? or something like that, and opportunities are likely to arise for you to speak up and say what you are thinking about. It is also easy for issues to arise that require everyone to think and work together. In this sense, it will be very important this week to “switch gears and focus at a moment’s notice. You may find yourself thinking, “It’s not a good idea to drag this out, so let’s just focus and get through it! It is likely that you will find the courage to say things like, “I don’t want to keep dragging this out, so let’s just focus and get through this. How do I concentrate? As for the specific method of “how to concentrate,” try to imagine that you feel a cold wind blowing through your chest. Try to feel the cold wind blowing through your chest, and feel the tension in your body in a good way.
Gemini (May 21st to June 20th)
Yes, we’re going to make up our minds!” ” white was on display. This is a characteristic of Gemini in 2024, but there are all sorts of “doors of the unknown,” large and small, ahead of you. As for those doors, it’s like “the only way to know is to actually go there and open them,” and this week you too can decide, “I don’t know what will happen, but yes, I’m going to do it! I have an image of you deciding, “I don’t know what will happen, but yes, I’m going to open the door that is in front of me. I want to tell you this because it is also important, but this year Gemini has the feeling that even if you try to prepare for such things as “perfect predictions” or simulations for the future, you will not be able to do all of them. We will be blessed with interesting fortunes in 2024, with “a lot of things you won’t know unless you try.” That said, you should absolutely try to “feel a little connection” or “get into the groove of things”. This week you have a kind of “forcefulness” in a good way, so sometimes it’s good to make a decision, like “Yes, I’m going to do it.
Cancer (June 21st to July 22nd)
There was an emerald in “I’m going to stretch my wings a bit.” First of all, from a big picture perspective, Cancer had a flurry of major changes in 2023, and the aftermath and reverberations of those changes have been continuing, but it seems that you will finally be able to “settle down” this week. In particular, you have a very strong “luck of change of pace” this week, and you will be able to have some luxurious time to stretch your wings, have fun for the first time in a long time, and feel peaceful and tranquil. This week, rather than making decisions or thinking about “what I should do,” it would be better to just let things go with the flow and let the future take care of itself. Do what you need to do half the time and take it easy the other half of the time.
Leo (July 23rd to August 22nd)
Orange was on “The Importance of Going the Extra Mile.” The first important thing to do this week is the advice to “do something extra, as a reward for yourself”. I want you to hear this for a second, but most “actions” in the world, or “things that lead to the next thing as a result of that action,” often disappear before they show up. This is because before someone takes any action, he or she is often interrupted with “Is that something we should do now? or “Why are you doing that? Or, “Why are you doing that?” There are so many times when people ask for meaning or reason, or throw cold water on something that is “hot. However, there are many times when we can’t explain the reason or meaning, but act because “somehow, my heart was moved,” and that is how we create a new future. So this week, please do whatever comes to your mind, including “extra actions. Because sometimes you will feel like praising “yourself for taking action.
Virgo (August 23rd to September 22nd)
There was red in “my own breakthrough.” This week, Virgo may be feeling more and more like, “I’m going to do this for now,” or they may come up with their own solution or policy, and then move based on that decision. For example, one person says, “I just need to take care of what I have done so far,” and another says, “It may be a difficult challenge, but I just have to trust the people around me and go for it! And so on.” These are the answers that lead to the so-called breakthroughs. In addition to that, this week is also a good time for “fun,” “games,” and encounters with “things that you lose track of time and become passionate about,” and it is easy to complete your missions with increased focus in various areas.
Libra (September 23rd to October 22nd)
Yellow for “remembering what you wished for a while ago.” It is this week, after all, it is “how you feel” that matters. Libra is in the process of “adjusting what it cares about and what it doesn’t care about” in order to move forward with its life. For example, “I may be reacting a little too delicately to this subject,” or “I don’t care that much about this topic,” etc., and so on, and they are sorting out what they do and don’t care about. So this week, please try to make some kind of “distinction” or “compartmentalization” within yourself. For example, “I am more upset about this matter than I thought I would be,” etc. Check each of these things one by one. Rather than saying, “I mustn’t lose,” or “I mustn’t worry about it,” it might be better to try it as if your other self is looking at it calmly, saying, “Surprisingly, I tend to react more easily to this kind of thing.
Scorpio (October 23rd to November 21st)
Time alone, time with everyone. Both are important” was pink. First of all, as the title says, both “alone time” and “time with someone or everyone” are important for Scorpio this week. This is because so much has really happened since the beginning of the year, and because of that, many people now often feel that they do not know how to feel. Now, you know, sometimes the right answer is to do what is in front of you, but not to try to do anything about it. You don’t have to force your thoughts together. Try to have a little time to be “left alone” by those around you. It may not be polite, but sometimes it is necessary to spend some time alone, like eating a meal while looking at your phone. When there are other people around you, you have to make yourself in “response mode. You should also take time to take a walk or listen to music by yourself, and if you feel like it, talk with other people.
Sagittarius (November 22nd to December 21st)
Orange was in “getting back to feeling and doing.” This week Sagittarius is likely to experience that kind of confusion, such as “Can I do what I’m thinking now and what I’ve been planning to do for some time? The answer to that is, of course, you don’t have to do everything, but as much as you can, “Do it! You don’t have to do everything, of course, but please do as much as you can in the “Do it! Now is the time for many people. And as for Sagittarius, while doing what needs to be done, you still need some “time to stretch your wings” at all. Just spacing out and having a drink. Chat with friends for the first time in a while. Go out to eat something you like. Instead of rushing to “get back to my daily routine and do what I can do! Rather than rushing, “I have to get back to my daily routine and do what I can do,” please take a little more detour, but in a good way.
Capricorn (December 22nd to January 19th)
Turquoise was out for “the winds blow outward.” Capricorn’s fortunes this week are quite special, and it is moving “outward from the routine that it has been, as if it has been locked in. I would like to explain a little about this. Last year, Capricorn in 2023, has been strong and has taken on a “guardian” kind of role. In the long term, to the extent of five or ten years, Capricorn has been “what I’ve always wanted and what I’ve always gotten. And I feel that I have fulfilled my responsibility and responsibility as a person who has made a connection with something important. You have done that “responsibility” and “bullying” strongly in 2023. So, yes, because you have concentrated on that part of your life, you have also fought against the pressure of feeling “trapped” or “unable to escape. But now it’s 2024, and you’ve been gradually released from that pressure, and you’re finally moving “out” of the “everyday life you know”.
Aquarius (January 20th to February 18th)
There was turquoise from “Mysterious Power Comes to Me.” From Aquarius this week, there was an image like “opening the storehouse”. In other words, you are likely to make a move to share or share what you have, and the experiences and worldview you have developed, with the outside world. It is good to have a chance to “give,” as long as you can afford to do so. And this week, Aquarius will be strangely motivated to “give it a go,” and the suggestions and requests you receive now will be like “I really wanted to try something like that, and I would like to ask you to do it, too. I would like to ask you to do it,” etc. It is easy to have a win-win relationship with the people around you. You can “put your feelings on top” of what you are doing and what you should be doing, so please go ahead and do as you feel like it and as your current environment and conditions allow.
Pisces (February 19st to March 20th)
There was an orange in “Imagination Matters.” Many people are still in a special sense this week. First, listen to these stories. It is still very scary when people encounter things in their lives that they cannot “control” or “understand. That is why, this week, first of all, many people need “time. You don’t have to suddenly decide your direction, or decide “I will do my best in this,” or anything like that, so please do what you can do right now. What I recommend, for example, is that you try to imagine as carefully as possible the “small pleasures” that you are trying to do now. For example, “I’m thinking of going to eat this menu item at that restaurant for the first time in a while. I’m going to wear these socks, and while I’m at it, I’m going to take a walk around the neighborhood of that restaurant and stop by here,” etc. Try to imagine what you can look forward to. Imagining what you like to do in a concrete and careful way is a way of taking back “your initiative” from “fear. It’s okay to take it slow, it’s okay to play with it, and it’s okay to imagine fun.
