Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, February 2nd
March 21 – April 19
With effort, comes reward. However, we tend to have one idea about how we’d like to be rewarded and often discover the universe has another. When we receive what we believe to be a less than desirable reward or one that doesn’t exactly fill us with excitement or inspiration, we regard effort we made as a waste of time, or believe we were fooling ourselves in some way. To gain the most exciting and inspiring reward, you need to invest your effort toward what truly excites and inspires you now.
April 20 – May 20
How often do we associate negativity with challenge? We do have a tendency to equate difficulty with an inevitable negative result. It’s interesting we should do that, when you think about it. It says much about our faith and belief levels. That’s why, where you see the need to rise to a certain challenge now, you shouldn’t automatically assume it comes with a negative result. Don’t link difficulty with despondency. The only suggestion of failure is coming from you now and it is important to believe and trust that it is unfounded.
May 21 – June 21
There are limits to how much we can prepare for anything. Even top sporting champions reach a point where preparation must cease and what’s been prepared for must be faced. It can be helpful when we’re put in a position where we’re unable to procrastinate, too. We can sometimes find or even create reasons not to do something so there can be benefits when something we need to do is ‘time sensitive’. You don’t need to put yourself under unnecessary pressure now but, at the same time, don’t believe what you’re preparing yourself for can go on indefinitely.
June 22 – July 22
Some cooperation from a certain person wouldn’t go amiss. You could understandably wonder what more you’re supposed to do or say to get a desired response from a certain individual who seems to have their own idea about what level of obligation they have to respond. What’s needed here, as frustrating as it might be to hear, is more time. You can, however, be assured that you have done all you’re able to do or that’s sensible in the scheme of things. You’ve planted enough seeds. Now, leave them along briefly to grow and you will see chutes of hope before long.
July 23 – August 22
You’re being expected to be accommodating in many ways but, to do this, you need someone to make it easier for you to be accommodating. Their insistence they’re right about a particular matter and it’s you who has missed the point – or their belief that you’re the one being obstructive – isn’t helping matters. You have pride to take into account and as willing as you are to be obliging in one way, there are limits to what you’re prepared to tolerate. You know what those limits are. As you continue to be pushed in some way, someone else will soon recognize them.
August 23 – September 22
When we believe ourselves to be right about something, we don’t just ‘think’ we’re right. Something also often ‘feels’ right, too. No matter how we look at a particular issue, we see what we believe to be ‘right’ about it as conclusive and needing no further analyzing or discussion. So, when do problems arise? They arise when someone else feels exactly the same way about something you’re certain they’re wrong about! So, can two people be ‘right’ or must one be wrong? There are ways compromise can be reached now if you and someone else want it.
September 23 – October 22
Not so long ago, a television that showed a skewiffy picture could be fixed temporarily by giving it a hard whack. A quick adjustment and the picture would return. We can’t do quite the same thing to televisions these days. We need first to check satellite or cable connections before using an automatic tuning system. What worked once is definitely no longer applicable. Bear this in mind where an issue in your world is concerned. You might believe you automatically know from previous experience how to ‘fix’ it but might be surprised how outdated your approach might be!
October 23 – November 21
Softly, softly, will do it. As tempted as you might be to lay down the law or part someone’s hair with some not-so-carefully chosen words, a much better result will come from making a point calmly and, if possible, quietly. When people speak loudly, recipients of their words are usually too busy trying to focus on what’s coming next to take on board properly what’s being said. Don’t give someone a good reason to be defensive now. Say what does need saying in the way you’d want it said to you and you probably won’t go far wrong.
November 22 – December 21
What do we do with Wish Lists? Do we create them and then leave them lying around to be lost with newspapers or magazines that end up in garbage cans? Do we create them in electronic formats that get lost among countless other documents on storage systems? Most of our Wish Lists get stored in our brains and looked at occasionally, as if to remind ourselves of what we want but are unlikely to ever have. Regardless of what format your Wish List is in, it is time to review it. Once done, start looking at what your first step is to achieving what’s top of your list.
December 22 – January 19
Rarely, do the words ‘enough is enough’ get said without some level of weariness attached to them. We tend to say them only when we believe we’ve reached the end of a proverbial tether. Yet, when we reach a point where we know we must change a situation that has brought us to a state of weariness, then that must surely be something to be inspired about. We will be bringing an end to a tiring or repetitive situation we have wanted to see change. Where enough has become enough in your world, prepare to experience delight at being freed in some way.
January 20 – February 18
Is there ever any benefit to doing something impulsively? Aren’t we supposed to think through our actions at all times and consider all potential consequences? We can do so if we want to ‘play it safe’ throughout our lives. But, is that not a dull, uninspiring or unadventurous approach? Is there not more fun and enjoyment to be had sometime by simply seizing some opportunities and hanging consequences? The sky isn’t encouraging you to be irrational or irresponsible but it is suggesting you might enjoy being less reticent and more spontaneous in a certain area now.
February 19 – March 20
When two people want to be ‘singing from the same hymn sheet’ or thinking along the same lines, all that matters is one isn’t drowning out the other. When that happens, imbalance gets created and a situation then exists where one person makes the other feel smaller or inferior. This, in turn, eventually causes resentment unless something is done to nip it in the bud before that happens. You and someone else appear to want the same thing. Try not to express your desire for it in ways that are likely to cause ill feeling on someone else’s part.
