You may imagine yourself to be as unrestrained as a soaring eagle today, but your responsibilities don’t leave you enough freedom to actually take a flight of fancy. Even if you think you know the escape route, it’s still complicated to make your first move. This is frustrating because you are usually skilled at starting something new. Don’t judge yourself harshly for not following through on your feelings. For now, doing the best you can is good enough.
You might feel as if satisfaction is a long way off now because your key planet Venus is still squaring somber Saturn today. You may be exhausted from a very intense interaction at work with someone who makes you anxious. However, facing your fears is one way to push beyond the comfortable boundaries. Communication is challenging, yet the potential for transformation can bring you closer to your relationship goals.
Your feelings can push and pull you all over the emotional landscape today, making it nearly impossible to know what to do. It’s not that you’re wishy-washy; it’s just hard to make a final decision when staying open to all the possibilities sounds better. One moment you’re eager to cash in your chips and walk away. The next moment you’re working hard trying to figure out how to save everything. An all-or-nothing answer is not acceptable when there is so much middle ground yet to explore.
You may have something very important to learn today if a close friend stands in the way of your progress. Unfortunately, your first impulse may be to turn a minor confrontation into a major fight. But you don’t need to prove that you’re better than anyone else. Instead, shift your attitude so you can minimize your own resistance, show your vulnerability and be more receptive of other people’s feedback.
Everything may seem more complicated than necessary today, yet you cannot simplify your life to reduce your current stress. The complexity arises from your heart desiring something that you just don’t know how to get. Holding firm to your goals now is a smart strategy that should ultimately pay off, but you’ll need to show some flexibility along the way.
You want to get ahead at work, but might not have the patience now that is required to succeed. You may feel frustrated because your job would be much easier without all the needless distractions from your personal life. Unfortunately, your friends and family aren’t as supportive as you wish. Don’t be afraid to set clear boundaries or withdraw from others in order to maintain your integrity.
You may feel stuck today, as if your creativity is temporarily blocked. Your regular routine could fall apart now, making it impossible for you to concentrate on realizing your dreams. However, don’t sell yourself short by thinking that you can’t do the miraculous. You are more capable than you realize, but you must have faith and patience for positive results to manifest.
You must decide if you can keep up social appearances today and still remain true to yourself. But your current choices aren’t as crucial as they seem because they are part of a long-term process that can redefine the structure of your relationships. Your key planets, physical Mars and passionate Pluto, are intensifying your feelings as the boundary between friendship and romantic love is tested. There are no wrong decisions now; just be clear about your overall direction.
Someone might give you a hard time about taking yourself too seriously today. Nevertheless, there is a lot going on now. You don’t like it when others disagree with you for no apparent reason other than spreading ill will, but it may be your own frustrations that are creating the bulk of the current stress. At least make sure that you continue to meet your obligations at home, even if you’re still sorting out how to handle everything else.
You may not be very happy if someone close to you wants something from you that you cannot deliver now. Unfortunately, these demands can precipitate a power struggle that won’t likely have a winner because of interpersonal complications. Don’t waste your energy trying to fix an irresolvable situation, instead change the rules of the game. It’s not a competition; if anyone is a loser, then no one wins.
Although you might want to shake up the status quo today, you won’t be successful unless you acknowledge the current limitations that are part of your life. Fortunately, circumstances won’t remain like this forever, even if you can’t see a path that will take you to your destination. Trying too hard now only pushes your goal further away. Paradoxically, relaxing your grip on the future may be the best way to make sure that you get there on time.
You are tired of learning hard lessons today and may rebel just to stretch your muscles. You are tempted to stir conflict by questioning an authority figure if one appears to be too rigid in his or her approach. Examine your own role in fomenting the current tension. When you stop projecting your internal battles onto others, relationships will become much easier to manage.
