We’re relieved to experience a well-deserved reprieve from recent stress as beautiful Venus trines stabilizing Saturn. However, we still need to manage a difficult situation when the controlling Capricorn Moon joins up with Saturn and Mars. Thankfully, the Moon is also trine Venus, confirming the idea that love overcomes nearly any obstacles. Nevertheless, we are unlikely to derive benefits from this cosmic setup unless we’re willing to take a risk.
Victory comes to you today in the form of approval from people you trust. However, the positive feedback you receive now doesn’t describe the entire picture. There are still responsibilities that must be honored, and you might need to reestablish personal boundaries. Warrior Mars is in the picture, so concentrate on delivering your message concisely without losing your temper. Archbishop Desmond Tutu said, “Don’t raise your voice; improve your argument.”
The rewards for your hard work are a welcomed acknowledgment, but the recognition you receive today might not match your expectations. Nevertheless, you can feel the approval in your gut, and it motivates you to make hay while the Sun shines. There’s no need to wait for a second invitation from the cosmos now that it’s telling you your persistence will pay off. James A. Michener wrote, “Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.”
You can manufacture a plethora of reasons to avoid a deep connection today with someone you trust. You might think that delving into the world of practical emotions is a clever way to avoid more mundane chores. However, your plan could backfire when you finally realize how empty your successes are without satisfying relationships to add color to your world. Pablo Picasso said, “The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.”
You are tenacious in love and loyal in every variety of relationship. If you give your word, you will follow through and keep your promise. Ironically, the tables are turned today while you are the object of someone else’s allegiance. Don’t waste time questioning the motives of others; just accept their sincerity at face value and lean on them for support as needed. Sometimes it really does take a village. Walt Disney said, “Whatever we accomplish belongs to our entire group, a tribute to our combined effort.”
You get a certain satisfaction from being productive today that goes beyond logic. It’s not unusual for you to run through your list of chores and check them off one at a time. But you may have more on your plate than usual, making it feel doubly satisfying when completing your work. Or, there might be a rather light load now, leaving you precious extra time to fuss over a project. Either way, be grateful to the benevolent universe, accept the grace and move on.
You may not be the fastest-moving person around today when it comes to applying your creativity to a concrete project. Nevertheless, what you produce now is of extremely high quality and is admired by your friends, family and peers. For once, there’s no reason to drive yourself harder in order to accomplish more. Journalist Po Bronson wrote, “If you want to give yourself a fair chance to succeed, never expect too much too soon.”
Although you can appear to be quite forthcoming in a conversation with a friend or relative, you won’t likely give up as much information as others think you do. Your delivery is so deliberate that how you express yourself has a greater impact than what you say. However, pushing beyond your comfort zone is a healthy exercise now. Even if you feel emotionally vulnerable, anything you reveal will be treated with the utmost respect. Leonard Nimoy said, “The miracle is this: the more we share, the more we have.”
You don’t seem very excitable today, and your even-keeled attitude is a mixed blessing. On one hand, your avoidance of extreme emotions makes you more approachable by those who don’t do as well when navigating the nonphysical dimensions. On the other hand, you might not allow yourself to experience the full spectrum of feelings that are normally available to you. You can earn the benefits of both approaches by creating a path that combines the best of each.
A sensible strategy to problem-solving today enables you to obtain results that others miss. You’re not interested in flashy ideas or unrealistic goals. Nor will you pursue controversial subjects that could be the source of disagreement. Instead, choosing the middle of the road affords you the greatest level of safety with the best assurance of figuring things out so everyone can move ahead with confidence. Author Shiv Khera wrote, “Your positive action combined with positive thinking results in success.”
It’s nearly impossible for anyone to change your mind if you believe you already know the truth. Usually, you can be quite abrupt and even difficult to deal with when you believe you are right. Thankfully, there is a sweetness to your demeanor today that enables you to hold your position without offending others. You may not possess a sparkle in your eyes or a bounce in your step now, but everyone will know that you are being true to yourself.
You may appear to be out of step with everyone else today, as if you are truly dancing to your own drummer. You might be so evasive when questioned about your position that others don’t have a clue as to where you stand on an issue of great importance. Whatever your motivation is for keeping your feelings to yourself now, consider setting your concerns aside and sharing a piece of your heart. Philanthropist W. Clement Stone wrote, “Thinking will not overcome fear, but action will.”
Your social obligations are in the spotlight today as you sort through the activities already on your schedule. It might not make sense to try to participate in every event because you will just end up exhausting yourself before you realize what happened. Step back and separate the items on your calendar into those you want to do and those you must do. In order to say yes to your priorities, you must be willing to say no to something else.
