The need to achieve a goal clashes with our intentions to treat everyone kindly today. The ambitious Capricorn Moon gains power as she joins potent Pluto. We’re impatient when dealing with anyone who stands in our way. But a stressful lunar square to the diplomatic Libra Sun reminds us to consider other people’s feelings on our road to accomplishment. Thankfully, an auspicious Moon-Jupiter sextile reveals a path to success that empowers others, too.
You might be abruptly halted when pushing forward now. Thankfully, whatever is thwarting you is more likely to be temporary than permanent. There is a way to sneak around an obstacle today. But if you want a long-lasting, worry-free solution, the best bet is to wait it out. A past-present link needs to be modified or broken; fixing this dynamic or resolving the conflict speeds things along. Timing may not be everything, but it’s a lot. Consider all the variables before choosing your lane.
Tread carefully when closing in on a treasured dream. Counting those chickens before they hatch can be a costly distraction. Luckily, it's an avoidable miscalculation. Stay tuned into the moment at hand today, without looking back or trying to peer too far ahead. Almost at the finish line is not the same thing as crossing it. All that’s meant to come will come in due time, but remaining on track is essential. Don’t fade down the stretch. Perseverance is your secret to success.
Take something from one stage or condition and transform it to another today. The activity of refurbishment, restoration, or regeneration closely mirrors an interior process of healing with which you can identify with on an emotional level. Creative spirit unleashed is an agent of comfort and nurture. Bring full enthusiasm to a meaningful job. What’s repaired isn’t meant to be just like new. It’s seasoned, unique, and maybe better than ever. Leonard Cohen wrote, “Forget your perfect offering. There is a crack, a crack in everything. That's how the light gets in.”
Aim for objectivity and honestly evaluate the direction a relationship is heading now. It may seem like a fork in the road’s been reached, especially in love or marriage. Thankfully, there are plenty of ways to stir up romance, starting with a break from the regular routine. Subjectivity enters the picture when you question whether this is the relationship you want to pursue or if your path to emotional fulfillment leads elsewhere. A serious searching of the soul will uncover the answers. Don’t rush the river.
Set a small and attainable goal today. When you reach your target, set another goal and press forward. And so on, throughout the day. An almost Zen-like state of inner tranquility can be achieved by adopting this sort of rhythmic work ethic. As each task flows to the next, thoughts and emotions similarly follow a peaceful pace. A lot can be accomplished in this manner. But the most meaningful action is inside the psyche, heart, and soul.
Reassessment of your priorities is necessary when time is a limited resource. Are you truly enjoying participating in a particular social activity, volunteer effort, or exercise class? Or are you just keeping a loved one happy by accompanying them? As much as you want to be helpful, you’re entitled to make some changes if you don’t like how you are spending your free time now. Playing the wrong role in any chapter of your life story can be like wearing too-tight shoes on your soul’s feet. You risk suffering a spiritual blister. Authenticity fits you like a custom-made boot.
Returning your attention to a job previously set aside or delayed is prudent today. This could be a matter of necessity if something goes on the blink and needs repair. Or it might be because of a strange bit of synchronicity that makes you suspiciously feel as if you’re receiving a cosmic signal now. Follow this healthy impulse wherever it leads, especially if the journey includes lots of constructive catch-up. There’s no time like the present to say, “procrastination be gone.”
Your curiosity is skyrocketing off the charts today, and your fascination knows no bounds. You are passionate about doing some serious research, whether it’s regarding a scholarly project, a business tactic, or scouting out the location for your next vacation. Not every topic toward which your mind drifts is likely to grab your attention and hold onto it. But when you’re hooked, you’re hooked. Dive deep in your search for knowledge.
Even everyday chores don’t look so trivial when viewed from the big-picture perspective. If the minor jobs don’t get done, major things cannot happen. And that’s certainly what you’re striving for in your career or public profile. Theatrical giant Konstantin Stanislavski famously said, “There are no small parts, only small actors.” Apply this can-do thinking to the mundane dynamics of your errands and routine tasks. When your state of mind isn’t dull, neither is your life.
Unexpected changes provide the opportunity to accelerate the pace of progress in your career pursuits or financial prospects. Acing a complicated assignment can only do healthy things for your reputation. Look for clues to help you get your timing right and be prepared to pounce on good fortune whenever the possibility arises. Novelist Honore de Balzac said, “It is easy to sit up and take notice. What is difficult is getting up and taking action.” Showing initiative allows you to shine at what you do best.
Things that go bump in the night, sometimes make noise in the daytime, too. Extrasensory perception tingles today; even if you’re not usually sensitive to seemingly otherworldly vibes, you might be in for a surprise. There is plenty in life that’s not easily explained, and it can be inspiring to occasionally let your imagination run wild. In evening hours, you are more inclined to question the validity of whatever seems odd. Still, it’s hard to erase the lingering memories of the uncanny. Magic can be found in the mystery.
The impulse to stick your head in the sand is strong today. By remaining in denial, you might temporarily avoid having to face the ugly or untenable aspects of a situation. But that choice may also rob you of the chance to see the honest totality of the whole picture that’s under consideration. Sparing yourself some short-term discomfort could contribute to a sinkhole of illusion into which you risk a tumble. By gathering up your courage and looking truth in the eye, you can go forward empowered. You are stronger than you think.
