Your Daily Horoscopes for Thursday, January 22
March 21 – April 19
When do we reach a point where we take responsibilities too seriously? Are we aware of when we become obsessive toward an obligation? We all, at times, adhere to a ‘if a job’s worth doing, then we’re the best person for it’ attitude sometimes but we can also be oblivious to how much we’re taking on that ought to be shared. Be ‘live’ to this now. A responsibility or obligation needn’t be yours to shoulder alone. Don’t make it easy for someone to shirk in the background.
April 20 – May 20
We would probably embrace change if it wasn’t for the fact that it is always accompanied by a period of adjustment and it is adjustment we struggle with sometimes, not change itself. We can fool ourselves into thinking ‘big’ change requires ‘big’ adjustment, or that we ought to allow a lengthy period of time to acclimatize to a new environment or situation. You are well placed to adjust to a necessary change. Because it is necessary, you’re being supported by a very caring cosmos.
May 21 – June 21
A question you could be asking yourself surrounds ‘what is expected of you?’ This could refer to your own personal expectations and what you believe to be required of you to embark upon a new chapter in a particular area of your world. It could involve what you believe to be others’ expectations of you in terms of how you ought to respond or react to what’s unfolding now. You know that all that matters is what you think and feel. What others think is secondary. If what you’re doing feels right, then you can trust you won’t be letting yourself for anyone else down.
June 22 – July 22
It’s easy to reflect upon the past and see what we did right or what ‘worked’ back then. If we did something that had a desired outcome then surely there must be some relevance to applying it in the present or the future? We can convince ourselves circumstances were different then and we’re dealing with a new set of circumstances now that require a different strategy but perhaps – just maybe – we were able to summon courage more easily before? A solution you seek relies only on your willingness to do the same now. Don’t see it as any more complex than that.
July 23 – August 22
It’s not often skydivers jump from planes without parachutes. Rarely, do we sense impatience or excitement gets the better of them in a way that causes them to abandon all sensible thinking. Regardless of how invincible they believe themselves to be, they still recognize the need to take precautions or ensure they are setting off on an adventure properly. Try not to let impatience or impetuousness get the better of you now. You need to be alert and responsible if you’re to make happen what you want to see happen now.
August 21 – September 22
Should you stay or should you go? In other words, should you do what you’re considering doing or opt to abandon the plan forever? Sounds a bit extreme but you seem to be in a situation where you either take the initiative, pursue what unfolds or stay put and do nothing. Are the latter really options? There is something tantalizing about taking a risk now and your instincts ought to be telling you there are several benefits to doing so. So resist any urge to do nothing. Trust that you are very well protected and look set to be glad you did take a chanc
September 23 – October 23
We can be easily distracted sometimes. All it takes to lose sight of something that excites, inspires or motivates us is a negative or disparaging comment from someone who thinks they know better than we do about something and suddenly, we find ourselves re-evaluating something that didn’t require further thought. We can be a bit too quick sometimes to believe someone else has spotted something or a flaw in a plan we ought to have seen ourselves. Ignore any negative or discouraging comments coming your direction now. You know what feels right.
October 24 – November 21
Some people go to crazy lengths to protect themselves. They take out insurance policies and then take out further policies to protect their policies! The innate need to protect is natural but there are times when we can go a tad overboard when we ought to be focusing on more pertinent matters instead. You don’t need to go to such lengths now, even if you truly believe yourself to be vulnerable in some way. Provided all you’re doing now is being done honestly and with the very best of intentions, you simply cannot go wrong.
November 22 – December 21
Do others care what you think? Do they care what you feel? Are they willing to consider the contribution you can make to a shared objective? You might feel isolated in some way now, aware of how much you can do to improve a situation that involves certain others who believe what you think, feel or can offer is irrelevant or dispensable. For now, allow yourself to be detached. Let a situation grow and, if necessary, become a bit more sensitive before you choose to involve yourself with it. Then, you will be superbly placed to make your point or have your say.
December 22 – January 19
We understand history cannot be altered. Yet, we hear people say ‘history is being made’. This implies we can do much in the present to ensure no need exists to wish the past could be changed in any way. If we are in control of what’s happening now, then we should be able to ensure we don’t look back on this time with regret or resentment. Whilst you cannot change an aspect of your past, you are now being given a chance to put something right about it. Be brave. Be bold. Be willing to finally improve something you’ve long wanted to see put right.
January 20 – February 18
When we move into a new house that had been occupied by a previous owner, we can see traces of how they lived within it. We see spaces once occupied by large items and evidence of décor that they deemed suitable and pleasing. It takes time to make something once belonging to someone else, ours. First, we need to gain a real sense of ownership. You are superbly placed now to take control of an area of your world that has been controlled for some time by someone else. It’s time to make what you have remained unmistakably yours.
February 19 – March 20
Have you ever seen a sound engineer’s mixing desk? At first glance, it appears to be hundreds of knobs and dials that must surely take a highly advanced qualification or years of experience to understand. Yet, upon closer examination, many knobs and dials are the same, just in vertical rows. So, if you master knobs and dials on one row, you can do it for the rest. The point I’m trying to make surrounds how easily we convince ourselves something that looks complex must be so. Something in your world really isn’t as complex as you are determined to believe it to be.
