This is certainly a good thing, for you can only love and care for another as deeply as you love and care for yourself. Physical contact is especially important to you this week.

Although this exposure may be a bit uncomfortable for you, it’s likely to end up being a pleasant experience.

If you face them without fear, you will reap great rewards.
This is a particularly reflective and introspective week for Sagittarius. If you are willing to take the time to sit and be quiet with yourself, much will be newly realized and understood about yourself and what to do moving forward. However there will likely be something trying to pull you away from that reflective solitude. Sometimes this is a good thing, it will bring about an experience to help clarify these lessons, but other times it may simply be a distraction in which you should use proper discernment to avoid.
Things will be settling down a bit for Capricorn this week. You should be feeling more calm and steady, and if you’ve noticed a faster pace to your life lately, it will begin to slow down back to normal, although not for quite too long. However even still, “normal” right now isn’t quite what normal used to be, because for Capricorn more than anyone else, now is the time to strip away every part of your life that does not align with your truth. That means being a bit selfish and looking out for what’s best for you. Now is now the time to compromise.
For the first time in a while, Aquarius should be starting to feel a bit more calm this week, although for most of you that’s not saying much! You should notice a decrease in tension and aggression and things should flow more smoothly now. A critical lesson for every sign at this time is cultivating more genuine self-interest, but Aquarius naturally has this down better than most others. Of course this “selfish” quality can become problematic, but it’s more important now than ever to make sure all of your individual needs are met, you are the only one who can make it happen.

Take the time this week to tap into that Piscean well of divine inspiration and express yourself through whatever creative outlet you feel drawn to.
