Taurus April 20-May 20
They are practical and responsible people. They know how to handle their lives and how to manage
their budget. They are reliable,dependable, and have a pretty strong work ethic and want everything done perfectly the first time around. However, known for being stubborn as a mule, they do not deal well with change especially big events such as moving to a new house or swapping jobs. It’s not so much the letting go as the accepting of the new that stresses them out. Their unwillingness to compromise makes them paranoid as they fear that any big change may lead them to fail, in personal or professional endeavours. They end up not only suffering from high blood pressure but also overindulging in food, drink or sleep. To combat this, they should utilise their energy into focussing on themselves, meditating and acceptance of failure as an opportunity to grow. Also, they should try to forgive those who wronged them as holding grudges will only trouble them.

Virgo August 24-September 23
People of this sun sign are not only diligent and hardworking, but also analytical and practical. They have a great respect for others and identify with those who suffer in an unjustified way, making them to be known as kind human beings. Though they are the problem solvers for many around them, when it comes to their own case they cannot seem to find a solution for themselves. They bottle up all their worries and when they are unable to load off those worries, it causes them stress, affecting their physical and mental health. They overload themselves with work and end up experiencing burn out. They should stop being so critical of themselves and rather do something that doesn’t involve being a perfectionist, such as painting or gardening. Also, to quench their analytical mind, they can engage in some crossword puzzles or logic games like sudoku or chess, as it will help them deviate their mind to something else, making them feel energised.  

Capricorn December 22-January 20
These people are responsible and disciplined. They are ambitious and generous beings. They are tremendously proud. When they do not like or do not feel comfortable, they keep themselves aloof from others. They do not settle for less and demand a whole lot from themselves. They set seriously high expectations and expect to reach them all, which causes a lot of stress. They tend to forget to relax when they are working on something. If they can’t meet or exceed their expectations, it results in burnout and isolation. As a result, their whole body suffers the damage—they do not sleep or write, their ability to focus seems non-existent. It is necessary for them to halt and reconnect as immense pressure may also affect their heart. Capricorns can try retail therapy as indulging in their favourite goodies like a book or even a candy will take their mind off. They are disciplined people, and do not overspend.
