We strive to be practical when the Moon visits earthy Taurus. The ground feels familiar, yet we may not be happy, laying low until after the mid-week New Moon. Although gravity holds us in our place, a judicious application of levity lifts our spirits and defies the status quo as the Sun forms a creative aspect with jolly Jupiter. Meanwhile, we can’t escape from a disquieting connection between the easygoing Gemini Sun and transformational Pluto.
You can try to make light of the current dynamics at work, but you won’t be able to dance around the edges of an issue that must be addressed. Fortunately, the cosmos is setting the stage for a beneficial outcome. Nevertheless, karma is operative and you must give something significant to receive the positive results you seek. Talk about the elephant in the room that everyone’s ignoring. Arthur Conan Doyle wrote, “The world is full of obvious things which nobody by any chance ever observes.”
Your doubts may rise to the surface today as you consider the trajectory of a current project. You might even experience anxiety as you realize how much you need to accomplish in order to reach the goals you’ve already established. Unfortunately, your timeline seems impossible when you focus solely on the end point. However, breaking your journey down into manageable segments changes your perspective, enabling you to reawaken your confidence. Singer Jordin Sparks said, “Take one step at a time, there’s no rush.”
It seems as if you have plenty of time to do your work today, but the clock continues to tick and there is little time to waste. The truth is you can easily meet your current deadlines if you establish a methodical pace and stick with it. Pay attention to the arrival of your primary nemesis: distraction in any form. You can’t be pulled off course unless you give in to your disruptive impulses. Squelch your curiosity about anything that’s outside your immediate tasks now. George Lucas wrote, “Always remember, your focus determines your reality.”
Your strong feelings may go unrecognized by your coworkers today, but you probably won’t mind at all. In fact, you prefer to be noticed for your tangible contributions and not your mood swings. However, striving for any kind of acknowledgement now is a waste of your energy. Concentrate your efforts on the job in front of you, instead of worrying about what others are thinking. You have an opportunity to shine; showing up and meeting your obligations demonstrates your willingness to be a team player. Eleanor Roosevelt said, “Better to light a candle than curse the darkness.”
Although you may be fun-loving and generous, your peers see you as solid as a rock today. Your friends lean on you for support and come to you for advice because they trust the stability of your inner core. Nevertheless, you might wonder if their confidence is well-placed. Practicing humility is wise, but questioning your self-worth is foolish. As long as you maintain your integrity and speak from the heart, you will exceed the expectations of those around you.
Nearly everything you say today is connected in some manner to making your way in the outer world. However, you might find yourself embroiled in an intense interaction with a close friend or lover that pulls you away from more public commitments. Nevertheless, changes in even the most private and personal dynamics still have impact on your professional life. Try not to divide your activities into separate fragments. Living your life as an integrated whole creates the best chance for happiness on all fronts.
You are less concerned with the status of your relationships now than you are with being authentic. It’s as if you remember an inner truth that is non-negotiable, and then make adjustments in your outer world to align with your core values. However, you may bump up against family dynamics that create emotional dissonance. Acknowledging that you might not resolve everything overnight helps to ease the pressure while you continue on your mission of living in harmony with your highest ideals. Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, “We aim above the mark to hit the mark.”
Your current war chest is filled with words and you must use them wisely now to reach your goals. If someone opposes your plan, don’t just give up and walk away. Instead, pull out the letters in your linguistic arsenal and make your case. However, you may need to face a more difficult opponent in the form of your own doubts and fears. Again, language is your friend. Although it might sound silly, sit down and write yourself a letter that addresses your deepest concerns. In either scenario, concentrate on the positive potential for the best results.
You may gain support from invisible helpers today, but you must be attuned to the possibility for it to occur. An accidental meeting might turn into a significant opportunity, but the moment could pass without notice unless you are in a receptive mood. It’s as if the cosmos has your back now, but your negativity or disbelief could shut down a lucky break before it fully manifests. Humanitarian Robert Muller wrote, “What the world needs most is openness: open hearts, open doors, open eyes, open minds, open ears, open souls.”
A deep sense of purpose empowers you with superhero-like attributes today. However, you must take a risk and show your hand in order to realize your current potential. You could be holding the most amazing cards in the world, but they are of no value unless you play them. Don’t be distracted by bright lights and the potential rewards you might receive if you save the day. Just do what you do best: set an ambitious goal and accomplish it, even if it’s impossible.
Everything seems to be moving swiftly now, but you can’t tell if you’re making any progress yet. It’s as if you’re running around in circles, even if it appears like you’re heading in a straight line. Regardless, you want to make an immediate impact on your life and that means fixating on one single dream while the world continues to spin around you. Author Charles Carlson wrote, “You are successful the moment you start moving toward a worthwhile goal.”
You might lack concrete plans today, but you are more certain than ever that you are going to realize your dreams. Your current self-assuredness is not just pie-in-the-sky dreaming. You are cognizant of the deeper purpose of your life and you intuitively sense your destiny. Naturally, your fantasies won’t just materialize on their own; you still need to fine tune your strategy, create a detailed course of action and then get to work. Poet Anatole France wrote, “To accomplish great things, we must dream as well as act.”
