Your planetary ruler Mars prompts you to initiate action without considering the consequences, while taskmaster Saturn enforces a very different set of rules today. You must justify every single thing you set out to do now or circumstances could prevent you from accomplishing your goals. Unfortunately, even with a well-conceived strategy, it’s still not easy to get much done. Paradoxically, it’s counterproductive to push so hard, so ease up and take cues from those around you.
Subconscious drives increase your desire to act decisively today, but common sense tells you to use self-restraint in all that you do. It’s difficult to find the right amount of force as you attempt to make your dreams come true, yet turning them into reality can be very rewarding. Avoiding unseen problems is easier if you just make time to analyze your options before doing something you might regret.
You may be confused because it seems as if everyone thinks you should be handling things differently. However, none of their ideas feel exactly right to you. Don’t question your own judgment today; others might not be able to see your truth. Self-doubt is unproductive; go ahead and trust your intuition now, even if it is contrary to the well-intended advice you receive.
Your confidence is high as you imagine what you will be doing later in the day, but your actual actions may be thwarted by circumstances beyond your control. Unfortunately, you might have already made bold commitments that you don’t want to break, leaving you little time to achieve your objectives. Although your optimism will probably wane, it doesn’t make sense to play the role of a victim. Stand your ground; do as much as you possibly can today and save the rest for tomorrow.
The spontaneous Sun-Uranus sextile tempts you to skip out on your obligations, but avoiding your responsibilities now is not a smart move. Instead of following a whim today, it makes a lot more sense to cool your heels and resign yourself to delaying the fun until you have completed your objectives for the day. But if you meet too much resistance, try backing off just a little bit. Pushing against an immovable obstacle won’t be productive and could even tire you out.
You have a real action plan today and you’re eager to get started. But someone may not be as supportive as you wish, making success an uphill battle. It might even seem as if others are purposefully working to sabotage your efforts, but it’s not helpful to get sidetracked by this kind of drama. Instead of worrying about anyone else now, just show up and do the best you can. If your strategy makes sense, your determination will gradually overcome the resistance.
You may feel as if every step you take is being blocked today, but your attitude might just be the result of your frustration. If you are unhappy about what you are currently doing, suppressing your disappointment is not healthy. Avoiding your feelings can trick your psyche into unconsciously seeking out the negativity that you have pushed into the shadows. Rather than struggling to get your message across, consider what you need to learn before trying again.
If you are annoyed with someone’s obstinacy today, go ahead and bring your feelings out into the open. If you don’t, a small irritation could begin to fester and become a serious problem. However, caution is also advised if you decide to reveal your current frustration because you may make matters worse if you blame a friend or associate for your dilemma. Minimize your anxiety and relieve the tension by sharing your inner process without judging anyone else.
Your impatience could create tension if you demand too much from someone today. You might even try to control things by exercising more authority. Unfortunately, this ineffective management style could create problems. It is wiser to be honest and express your vulnerability by letting others know about your areas of concern. However, it’s not useful to expect them to fix your problems, but a healthy exchange of ideas can reveal something important you didn’t know.
Your methodical approach to work may not be as effective as you wish today, and this could annoy you so much that you grow angry. It takes a lot to knock you off track, yet now the little things pile up until they seem like a crisis. It’s more important to build a stable foundation on which to stand than trying to reach your goals overnight. Don’t get distracted by your fear of failure; instead, just pay attention to the ground beneath your feet and the task right in front of you.
Someone may be making demands that require you to adjust your calendar today, but all your efforts seem to be for naught. Once the fabric of your day begins to unravel, nothing you do seems to put it all back together again. You could consume a lot of energy trying to reestablish your sense of order, but it’s probably smarter to let the house of cards fall. Once the dust has settled you’ll be able to recreate your schedule better than ever.
It’s unnerving if a good friend becomes overly critical today. Although you are rightfully upset by this apparent betrayal, it’s likely that you’re expecting too much. Rather than stubbornly holding on to your previous assumptions, relax your grip on the situation by temporarily releasing your attachment to your goals. Ironically, as you let go, others may begin to show the encouragement that they were previously withholding.
