If you are not greeting this Monday morning with a hangover, both from Rihanna withdrawal and alcohol, then kudos to you because you clearly had a more somber Superbowl than me. Nothing says ‘selfcare’ like ignoring that fact, pretending you’re completely fine, and hiding in your office bathroom until the day is over. Now, my remedies for a post-bowl weekend usually include a nice bath, a face mask, some soup, and your comfort movie/show, but being that it’s a work day, (and a Monday), that will be pushed towards the end-of-the-day wind down.
After work, and after praying to God that every person in your email chain is just as exhausted as you are, you should come home, start your bath, and begin the rejuvenation process to rewind the last 48 hours. If that looks like lighting some candles and doing some of our previously recommended meditative exercises, do that! Whatever soothes your wounded spirit. Below, I'll highlight my favorite rejuvenation combinations, and by Tuesday, you’ll be good as new!
Bath, with epsom salts and Lavender, and a soy candle to relax and renew.
Meditation, with a salt lamp, candles, and a dream journal.
Comfort movie (How to Lose A Guy in 10 Days), fuzzy bathrobe, veggie broth, and turning off your phone.
Your Monday Mantra to start this week is:
“I am light. I am love. I am serenity. I welcome in what i project.”
Your Week in Astrology: Feb 13th - Feb 20th
Like all reasonable and rational people everywhere, the only way to properly kick off your week is with a horoscope to predict your trials, tribulations, mishaps, and successes! 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…
At the start of this week, you may feel like you're no longer captivating the attention of those around you. But don't let it consume you! The stars indicate that soon enough, you'll be the center of everyone's universe again. A momentous decision is on the horizon for Aries - one that could alter the course of their destiny. Don't be disheartened if the outcome isn't what you expected; you can still salvage it with grit and determination.
The latter part of the week will require your undivided focus on your personal relationships. While tensions may arise within the family, there's no need for a screaming match. Maintain your composure and be mindful of your loved ones' emotions. Lastly, use the weekend to commence that one thing you've been putting off. Whether it's self-growth or diving into a captivating book, it's time to start something that will nourish your soul.
This week is a make-or-break moment for Taurus, as the effectiveness of their chosen course will be put to the test. But fear not, any necessary adjustments will not hinder your ultimate success. Keep a joyful mood, and watch as your relationships with loved ones thrive. And don't give up hope, as the stars predict that one of them may just surprise you with a solution to your problems.
Mid-week, Taurus without a soulmate may be in for a life-changing encounter. But as the weekend approaches, be wary of what you eat. One ill-advised meal could leave you with a stomach ache, or worse. Don't take any chances with stale or questionable cuisine. Your well-being is too important to risk.
Gemini, you'll have plenty of energy this week, but it's important to be mindful of where you direct it. Seeking advice from experienced individuals, especially in matters of the heart, can be helpful. The stars align for personal happiness, so keep an open mind. Remember, success comes to those who don't boast. Towards the end of the week, it may be best to limit social interaction and focus on learning through books and educational programs. Don't be afraid to let your mind wander and imagine. This can help bring you inner peace and tranquility.
This week, Cancer, you have a way with words that can persuade even the toughest of critics. Use your gift to get things done and be more proactive in your daily affairs. The horoscope recommends thinking outside the box and not dismissing unusual ideas too quickly. It's okay to have some outlandish ideas - just keep them tucked away for later.
In the middle of the week, your priorities may shift towards your personal relationships. It's important to be patient and understanding with loved ones as conflicts may arise. Don't worry though, any arguments will be resolved quickly. Remember to stay calm and collected as this can be your secret weapon during this time.
This week, Leos are encouraged to focus on the future. You may have a few important tasks on your plate, but don't worry, your experience and intuition will guide you through. It's important to stay positive and confident during this time, and remember that your loved ones are there to support you if you need it.
Towards the end of the week, things will start to look up for you. Take advantage of this lucky streak and ask for help or support where you need it. You might even want to consider reaching out to someone for a loan or investment opportunity. As for the weekend, it looks like love is in the air. Don't be afraid to let your emotions show and enjoy the romance.
This week might be a bit confusing for Virgos. You might feel a bit anxious around a new neighbor or friend without even realizing it. It's okay to take your time and not force a relationship with this person. Also, be careful with household tasks as accidents may happen.
Don't forget to take care of yourself too. It's important to prioritize your health and rest when needed. Doing things you love can help boost your energy levels. It's best to avoid alcohol and overeating. The stars have spoken!
Hey Libra, this week might be tough to avoid leaving some things unsaid and hearing some gossip. Don't try to take the spotlight during conversations and keep things simple and humble. This is a good time to start new projects, especially ones you can handle on your own.
Around midweek, you might find yourself in a great position. Your love life may become clearer, or you may meet someone who will have a big impact on your future. Don't waste your energy trying to solve family drama - give them space and they'll work it out on their own. Good luck!
Scorpios, you might receive an unusual offer at the beginning of the week, and it's worth taking a moment to consider. It could potentially benefit you in the future. As for the middle of the week, allow yourself to get creative in any way that speaks to you.
Regarding personal matters, this week looks steady and predictable. Scorpios who are in a relationship can expect romance, admiration, and an openness to communication from their significant others. Those who are single should try not to hold out for perfection and instead be open to new experiences.
Dear Sagittarius, this week is going to be a busy one for you. You'll be starting lots of projects that will bring you closer to success, and your negotiations and discussions will be super productive. Remember to fight for your rights with conviction, but keep a friendly tone.
As the week progresses, it's best to focus on taking care of yourself. In these unpredictable times, you should prioritize your well-being, beauty, and energy levels. Be cautious of the news you're consuming - not all sources are reliable or worth your attention. So, take a step back and don't get too involved in ongoing events. Stay positive and keep pushing forward!
Capricorns, this week is looking pretty good for you! The stars are advising you to pay attention to the people in your life who mean the most to you. They are more than just friends, they are your allies! Your success will come from the agreements you make with them.
But don't forget about the day-to-day stuff, either. In the latter half of the week, things may pop up unexpectedly that you thought were taken care of. Take some time to fix any mistakes and learn from them. And come the weekend, why not spend some quality time with your family or your significant other?
This week, Aquarians will feel a strong urge to be independent. Just make sure to balance this desire with your work responsibilities. Remember, you still value working with your team and don't want to let your pride get in the way. The stars suggest a calm and peaceful week, so use this time to focus on your unique talents and skills.
On the personal front, you won't have to convince anyone of your opinions. Your loved ones will be open to hearing your fresh ideas and engaging in meaningful discussions. If you're dealing with property, inheritance, or real estate matters, it's best to seek the guidance of a professional. Impulsive decisions may cause more harm than good.
Hey there, Pisces! This week might have you feeling a bit confused, but don't worry - you'll be able to handle whatever comes your way. Just keep in mind that even if you figure things out, you might not be completely satisfied with the outcome. It's okay though, because there's always room for improvement.
At the beginning of the week, you might feel a little down. But don't fret, my friend. Take a moment to think about all the great things you've accomplished in the past, and use that as motivation to look forward with hope.
As for your personal relationships, everything should go as usual. If you're single and looking for love, you might even catch someone's eye this week. But be careful not to make your partner jealous if you're already in a relationship and feeling a bit vain. Keep things in check and all will be well.

Just want to point out the attitude towards drinking and over drinking. Put simply: alcohol use is a real problem, it’s everywhere, it’s totally accepted as normal, sometimes as adult or cool, and not seen as dangerous. I’m not quite sure how we got here, but it’s time to rethink our view of alcohol. It’s not okay. It’s not healthy. It destroys individuals and families. It carries an extraordinary cost. Let it begin as a take on self-care. It’s great self care not to drink alcohol
