Capricorn – 21 Dec to 19 Jan
The festive season means your attention is divided between work and spending time with your family. The need to balance the two, while keeping everyone happy, might put pressure on you. One good way to destress while still hanging out with your fambam is to go for massages.
Aquarius – 20 Jan to 18 Feb
This may be a period of celebrations, but some of your family members might face health issues. Instead of turning a blind eye, give them a helping hand, so they will render help when you need it next time.
Pisces – 19 Feb to 20 Mar
The New Year is about eating, drinking and, well, more eating. But be careful to not overindulge. It’s not worth risking your health for one celebration.
Aries – 21 Mar to 20 Apr
What you need now is rest, and if you’re adamant to push yourself beyond your limits, you might find yourself encountering old ailments and health issues.
Taurus – 20 Apr to 21 May
You’re psyched for the New Year and have got everything planned out. But are you taking on too much more than you can handle? If you really can’t cope, there’s nothing wrong with seeking help from friends.
Gemini – 21 May to 20 Jun
All the partying is taking a toll on your health, and you might find yourself down with the common cold and flu. While your inner party animal is saying, heck it and let’s go party, it’s best to give your body the rest it deserves before it blows up into something bigger.
Cancer – 21 Jun to 20 Jul
Be careful of accidents at home, especially if you’re hosting a party this weekend. While speed is key when it comes to playing host, remember that your safety comes first, especially if you’re handling hot objects.
Leo – 21 Jul to 21 Aug
You have a lot of energy and that’s not necessarily a good thing, especially if you choose to channel it through thrill-seeking activities. There’s a chance that you might sustain injuries during this period, so try to stick to something safer like exercising.
Virgo – 22 Aug to 22 Sept
Overexertion is going to be the cause of all health problems this week. Instead of trying to be the Jack of all trades, take a breather and let someone do the job for a change. A day or two of rest will do you good.
Libra – 23 Sept to 22 Oct
You might feel under the weather this week. While it might be tempting to brush it off as a minor ailment, it’s important to get some rest and ensure a speedy recovery, or it’s likely to worsen and might even leave you bedridden.
Scorpio – 23 Oct to 22 Nov
With all the parties you’re attending these two weeks, it’s not surprising that you’re on the brink of burning out. If you can’t host or even attend a party, don’t force yourself to. No one is judging you based on your attendance.
Sagittarius – 23 Nov to 20 Dec
If you’re always wanted to lead a healthier lifestyle, now is a good time to start. Even if you’re not consulting a dietician, you can start by adding more greens into your diet.
