You may not be able to justify playing with your friends today, even after your workday is over. You could have such a large backlog of obligations now that you don’t feel finished even after you complete several items on your checklist. However, feeling guilty doesn’t serve any real purpose, nor does endlessly explaining your actions to anyone else. Just do as much as humanly possible and then reward yourself by letting go of any lingering concerns that prevent you from enjoying the present moment.
Setting aside some time to relax is essential for your mental health today, because otherwise you could miss your chance for fun. Even if you figure out a sensible schedule in advance, something could happen that forces you to alter your plans. Don’t argue with the inevitable; save your energy for more important endeavors.
You would like to present a responsible image today by taking the extra step and turning a creative project into something useful. You might think you know where you’re going, but your priorities can change quickly when you are ready for fun. Unfortunately, it doesn’t matter how good you are at tap dancing; you still won’t be able to sidestep your chores. Chasing the elusive rainbow of pleasure will not bring true satisfaction, so give up your schemes and do what’s expected of you for now.
Someone at work might call in a debt today by asking you for a favor. Although it’s not acceptable to say no, you may feel annoyed if this obligation interferes with your other plans. It’s even more complicated if you cannot easily rearrange your schedule. Normally, setting firm boundaries would be a sensible strategy, but this tactic won’t work with the current circumstances. You won’t be to able fix everything, but it will probably be sufficient to show your concern and follow through the best you can.
It may be a challenging day for you, especially if you are struggling because you’re spread too thin. It gets even worse if others are demanding that you take care of everything right away. You could get so angry that you dig in your heels and do nothing at all. Unfortunately, your inflexibility isn’t a smart tactic. Don’t get discouraged, even if you cannot see a sensible solution now. If you set priorities and take care of the basics first, you’ll have time and energy left over to make a bit of magic, too.
You don’t want to take responsibility for work that others should be doing. You may even resent someone if you’re the only one pulling your fair share. Don’t be too quick to jump in and fix other people’s mistakes today because you’ll only prove that you’re obsessed with unrealistic perfection. Instead, just be flexible and honor each person’s contribution, no matter how small. Thankfully, you won’t likely be so judgmental later in the week.
It’s no fun being around a controlling person, yet you might be the one who is assuming too much authority today. You don’t appreciate it when others act aggressively, so it’s a good idea to restrain yourself from doing so, as well. Fortunately, you can lean on your diplomatic skills now; staying aware of your impact on your workmates can ameliorate the tension before it reaches a critical level.
You may be in touch with a low level anger today that lingers from a recent disagreement with a co-worker. You might want to try a new approach to a routine task, but feel as if others aren’t supporting you in your efforts. Nothing will be gained by escalating this difference of opinion into an open conflict. Resolution isn’t likely now, so don’t force the issue. You will be more successful if you bring it up again in a few days.
You may need to get out of the house or escape from the office today in order to feel free. Unfortunately, this can trigger resistance from those who will have to carry the weight in your absence. Don’t be so shortsighted that your urgent need for adventure upsets a delicate balance of power. It’s better to lean into your restlessness now than to run away from it.
Your ruling planet Saturn slows you down today, yet it also prevents you from losing focus. Instead of scattering your energy too thin, think twice before acting foolishly. However, assertive Mars is also present, pushing you to take a risk. Finding a balance between caution and recklessness can be tricky business now. Allow your sense of urgency to pass before doing anything drastic; you have more time than you realize.
You may be feeling a bit subdued now, even if you’re still eager to succeed. You might not be able to find an easy solution to a current dilemma, but you can see how taking a gamble isn’t necessarily the wisest course of action. Rest assured that the obstacles you are facing are temporary. Hard work won’t resolve the problem today; however dogged persistence will eventually help you reach your goals.
You cannot see a direct path to success today, but that’s okay because you don’t mind zigzagging around as you close in on your destination. You may not even care about the details of where you are going now as long as you have a general idea. Ironically, being too practical will only create additional problems. Keep returning to your initial vision; the specifics will come to you over time.
