Self Care Sundays
The Antidote - Your Weekly Remedy
As January nears its end, our resolutions seem harder and harder to uphold. For many this year, dry January has been at the forefront. Health and wellness are an incredibly important piece to maintaining a positive mental state. While it seems daunting upholding our resolutions, no matter how small and feeble they may be, it’s an important part in setting our routines for the year. And even though we may stumble and make errors, continuing to persevere is all that counts!
Heading into the year with a clear head and mind is a great opportunity for an overall reset, and even though being in a loud place with people who are rowdy and drunk seems less than ideal, it is possible! There are more alternatives now than ever before for those who choose to follow a sober path. Mocktails, faux wine, and soda abound at bars and restaurants all over the world- our generation not only celebrates sobriety, but rejoices in what that clarity provides. Below, we’ll highlight some of our favorite alternatives to help you carry on your dry January, and perhaps, a dry 2023!

Have an important meeting this week? Gunning for a promotion? Going to profess your love to your crush? Fear not, as we’ve got you covered on all fronts with our weekly astrology reading. Enter our mystical world of stars and astros…
Hey Aries, this week may not be the best for you astrologically speaking. You may find yourself having to keep someone's secret or holding back from getting irritated. Things seem to be fairly normal around you. Keep in mind that any sudden changes that come up should be thought about carefully before acting. Acting impulsively could lead to unpleasant consequences.
Towards the end of the week is a good time to reach out to an old friend, either by texting or calling. Some of you may even feel the need to reignite an old flame or apologize to someone. Don't forget to show your loved ones some extra love and attention.
This week, Taurus will be in the driver's seat for events. It's important to remember to consider the perspectives of others, though. The astrological forecast for your sign isn't exactly crystal clear, so it's up to you to steer the ship in the right direction. But, don't forget to keep an eye on the winds of change to make sure you stay on course.
In matters of the heart, there's less room for uncertainty. It's up to you to make things happen. If someone has cooled off after expressing their love, it's time to face the reality. This applies to all important aspects of life. Hiding things will only make things more complicated, so be honest and upfront.
This week, it's best for Geminis to steer clear of any debates and let their surroundings remain unchanged. It's crucial for them to keep their emotions in check and stay confident. Midweek will bring some good news for those hopelessly in love, as there's hope for rekindling the passion, but it won't happen overnight.
The weekend is a time for self-care for Geminis who have expended a lot of energy handling everyday and personal problems. A relaxing bath with aromatic oils, calming music and a massage is the perfect way to unwind and feel rejuvenated.
Hey Cancer, this week might feel like a long one for you. But don't worry, there won't be any major challenges coming your way. You may feel like your surroundings are a bit dull, but don't try to shake things up. Just focus on your own goals and take care of any tasks you've been putting off.
Later in the week, you may be faced with a significant financial or personal question that requires an answer. Don't rely on others for advice as their opinions may be biased. Trust your gut and make the best decision for you.
Hey Leo, this week looks promising for you with a balanced astrological outlook. Keeping a positive attitude will improve your interactions with others and make them more productive. This is a great opportunity to voice your important questions, express your desires, or make requests.
But be cautious when it comes to uncertain situations. Not everything is under your control, as the circumstances are constantly changing. It's best to wait for things to settle down before making any moves.
Hey Virgos, good news! This week's astrological forecast predicts an energy boost for you. You'll come across some valuable insights that will help guide you in the future. The agreements you make during this time will be a win-win situation for both you and the other party involved, leading to harmonious relationships and positive vibes.
However, your love life may be a bit confusing. My advice to you is to avoid making any demands on your partner. If you want to find a solution that works for both of you, be willing to compromise. And remember, humor is your secret weapon! So don't be afraid to have a good laugh, especially at yourself.
For Libras, the upcoming week is going to be quite busy. You'll need to make some important decisions that will affect your near future and you may also need to help out someone close to you. With all the hustle and bustle, it can be easy to forget about yourself, but the stars are warning you to not overlook your own needs. Make sure to carve out some time for yourself, and keep an eye out for any physical symptoms.
Later in the week, you'll feel a welcome boost in your personal life. Keep your eyes peeled for any subtle hints from people of the opposite sex. And if you've been itching to try out a new style, now is the perfect time to go for it!
Hey Scorpios, this week you'll be putting your family first. It's a good time to take a closer look at things you might have missed before. It might be a bit of a roller coaster with ups and downs, but it's important to stay connected and communicate with those closest to you, even if it's from a distance.
You'll feel the urge to prove your worth, but make sure you're not using up all your energy in the process. Don't forget to take care of yourself too. Give yourself a break and explore some ways to relieve any emotional stress you may be feeling.
Hey Sagittarians, it's time to tackle those tasks that you've been putting off for a better day. With plenty of energy, now is the perfect time to get organized, clear your mind, and strengthen your relationships with the people you love.
Midweek, your family situation should be a bit more calm and stable. This is a great opportunity to sit down with your loved ones and talk about your plans for the future. If there are any disagreements, try not to push too hard to prove your point. Sometimes it's better to compromise and find a solution that works for everyone.
Capricorns, this week it's best to take a step back and wait things out. Before diving in headfirst, make sure to weigh the potential risks. Unfortunately, stability is still a ways off, so there's no point in making long-term plans. Just enjoy the moment and see where life takes you.
But good news is on the horizon! As the week progresses, you'll start to feel a boost of prosperity. Even if it's just in small ways, you'll finally be able to shake those pesky internal doubts. And if you feel a creative spark, don't hold back! Many of you will be more in touch with your emotions this week, so now's the perfect time to work on relationships that have stalled.
This week, it's time for Aquarius to reflect on their past experiences and learn from their mistakes. Take some time to evaluate what you've accomplished and think about what still needs to be done. It's also important to focus on expanding your horizons and overcoming any self-doubt or bad habits. By the end of the week, you may feel a little down, but don't worry. You can easily lift your spirits by watching a comedy, having a fun online hangout with friends, or just talking to someone who always makes you laugh.
This week, us Pisces are feeling inspired and full of brilliant ideas! Let's focus on what we can accomplish on our own and not rely on others. With the stars aligned in our favor, there's nothing stopping us from achieving our goals.
However, by the end of the week, we may face some communication challenges with friends or family. They may try to force their opinions on us or lecture us with their moralistic views. The best approach is to pretend to listen and be respectful, even if we don't necessarily agree.
