Your Horoscopes for Tuesday, February 3
March 21 – April 19
Old habits die hard. Much usually has to do with lack of desire on our part to release ourselves from them. We prefer predictability over possibility. You are being presented with an option now that involves either staying with what is predictable, even if it’s far from ideal in many ways, or taking a risk that involves removing yourself from what has grown familiar and comfortable to something else that has a very big question mark hanging over it in terms of comfort and stability it offers. Yet, it offers much in the way of excitement. That alone might be all you need to move.
April 20 – May 20
In Looney Tunes cartoons, characters wheel a television-looking device into the front of another character and this acts as an X-ray, showing what bizarre item they’ve consumed. Wouldn’t it be handy if such a device existed that could show what thoughts were contained in the heads of others? Wouldn’t it be helpful if we could get an instant snapshot of what someone else was thinking? You might find yourself growing increasingly weary with someone proving difficult to read now but it’s important you don’t treat any cautiousness on their part with suspicion.
May 21 – June 21
There’s an old saying about how we should only fight battles we know we stand a chance of winning. That’s another way of saying we should ‘play it safe’ wherever possible. The sky isn’t suggesting or encouraging your involvement in a battle but it is strongly encouraging you to recognize your limits in a certain area and do only what you’re capable of doing, nothing more. Don’t see this is as taking an ‘easy way out’. See it as being sensible and making the most sensible use of time and abilities.
June 22 – July 22
Slowly but surely, certain facts are emerging that are shedding helpful light on an area of your world where there has been much uncertainty and confusion. You’ve tried your best to piece together pieces of a proverbial jigsaw puzzle and have struggled to see anything resembling a helpful or accurate picture. In the light of new information that has either presented itself recently or is the process of doing so now, you have discovered the reality to a situation has been surprising, to say the least. Embrace and appreciate the fact that you are dealing now with facts, not assumptions.
July 23 – August 22
Your patience is being tested in some way. You’re dealing with one or possibly more volatile and even confused individuals and to say they have different ideas about a shared matter is an understatement. You’re being looked to though in some way for support or guidance. The best support or guidance you can offer now is sensitivity and, if required, sympathy. You needn’t fear losing out in some way or that your kindness will be taken advantage of. In fact, through displaying it, you stand to gain more than you might have. So relax and be supportive.
August 23 – September 22
‘Here’s one I prepared earlier’. TV chefs and children’s presenters making crafts often say such words. They need to accelerate time, therefore they skip straight to what something will look like if those watching do the necessary steps properly. In a similar way, allow yourself to be distracted by an opportunity presenting itself. If you can, then you will discover that what you return to has evolved in a very helpful way. It will have evolved in a way that can be used in ways it wasn’t earlier or will have saved you time in moving forward.
September 23 – October 22
It’s easy for us to ignore ‘the bigger picture’. We get so caught up with here and now or issues that appear to be so demanding in the present that we fail to see how they might be little more than helpful stepping stones for the future. In an area of your world, you appear to have made concerted effort to put a previous episode behind you in the belief that it needs to remain hidden. Expect soon to see how helpful and integral it is to what’s unfolding soon. It had a definite part to play in the greater scheme of things and soon, resentment will be replaced with gratitude.
October 23 – November 21
It’s a case of two heads being better than one. It’s also a case of getting someone on your side in the right way if something wonderful is to be achieved. You can choose to ‘lay down the law’ and make clear you’re not interested in someone else’s opinion and receive from them a half-hearted effort in some way, or you can make clear how willing you are to collaborate and share what needs doing. The latter will result in them being keener to share whatever-it-is with you. The choice is one you’re being presented with now. Working together has to be a better option?
November 22 – December 21
You don’t want grand gestures or lengthy conversations. You just want to know where you stand and to be able to pursue something close to your heart based on the fact that you’re doing so with clarity that doesn’t appear to be forthcoming presently. You’re having to make educated guesses where you would prefer to be pursuing something based on fact or confirmation on some level. You might believe likelihood of something becoming clearer is a long way away but it isn’t. Sooner than you probably think, what currently confuses you will be clearer.
December 22 – January 19
If you know how someone else is likely to react, how does that affect your reaction? Will you handle a sensitive situation more carefully – or does possibility exist that they might react in a way you hadn’t anticipated? You’re in a situation now where you believe you have accurate measure of how a tense discussion could go but the sky insists you ought to prepare for the unexpected and this could have noticeable influence on where the discussion then goes. Take each moment, one step at a time and be willing to deal with whatever arises as it arises.
January 20 – February 18
Think, if you can, of what’s occurring now as the equivalent of a film trailer. You’re being given glimpses into an unfolding situation but little more. What matters, or will matter more soon, is the full story that will emerge soon enough. That’s why you need not focus so intently on what’s happening in the present with the intention of trying to piece together a story that has yet to present itself in full. Relax, here and now. Let time pass before deciding what your next move should be.
February 19 – March 20
Some people are skilled at ‘engineering’ conversations. They know how to start them so they follow a pre-planned route. They then know how to steer the discussion so it ends at another pre-planned destination. This often causes the other person to wonder how on Earth the conversation went the way it did and ended where it did. It also causes them to wonder how they agreed with whatever it was they agreed. Be careful now of someone’s apparent skill to do something similar with you. You’re dealing with an expert. Do what you can to steer the conversation in a way that suits you, wherever possible.
