Although we may want to be pragmatic as the Sun shifts into cautious Capricorn, marking the Winter Solstice, we are more likely to let our visions carry us away today. Blind optimism leads the way with the joyous Sun-Jupiter trine, enabling us to see the brighter side of life while the wild Sun-Uranus square encourages us to take risks. Meanwhile, the Moon’s entry into adventurous Sagittarius at 7:02 am EST affirms the current upbeat energy.
You cannot contain your excitement today as the barriers to pursuing your happiness fall away. Although you may be high on anticipation about your upcoming adventures, satisfaction might not be as close as you expect. Don’t be cavalier about the complexities you must still overcome. If you are serious about your goals, you just might be able to execute your plans successfully.
Last minute social commitments might add a bit of stress to your day by placing too many demands on your time. Although you’re capable of stretching beyond your usual limits today, don’t reach so far that you upset the balance between work and play. Being open to the spirit of the holiday season is fine, but don’t be afraid to retreat if your common sense tells you that you are overextended.
It’s tempting to go along with someone’s idea today because you are more concerned with enjoying yourself than with achieving success. Fortunately, the Moon’s presence in your 7th House of Companions can amplify the strength of another person’s strategy, further encouraging you to let go of your previous plans. Your cooperative spirit enables you to work well with others now, bringing greater satisfaction than doing something on your own.
Although you’re optimistic about what you can accomplish at work today, your expectations might be somewhat unrealistic. Streamline your to-do list before wasting lots of energy on tasks you can’t finish. Instead of spreading yourself too thin, focus on completing a few of the most important tasks; otherwise, you could exhaust yourself before the day is done.
You are feeling very creative today as the buoyant Sagittarius Moon enters your 5th House of Self-Expression. However, you aren’t in the mood to perform the repetitive tasks that may still be required. Be careful about reacting too impulsively because your frustration could explode into an emotional outbreak that turns your day upside down. Although it might be challenging to be patient now, it’s best to save your greatest inspiration for your personal pleasure.
You may believe that you can accomplish everything today, but your schedule could fall apart if someone’s need for independence clashes with your agenda. You might have to reinvent your day on the fly or postpone tasks when something requires more time than you expected. Your emotional reaction could upset a close friend or loved one, but your reassurances should be able to settle them down. Make sure everyone knows that you still plan to meet your obligations over the next few days.
If you try to stuff one more activity into this day, it could be the straw that breaks the camel’s back. But you might not realize that anything has gone wrong until it’s too late. Even if you are quite confident that all is well in your world, it’s still smart to lighten up your calendar before you find yourself in trouble. If you stretch your commitments too far, the entire house of cards may need to fall in order to alleviate the tension.
Exercising financial caution is wise today because the optimistic Sagittarius Moon in your 2nd House of Possessions encourages you to spend more than you should. Your money may be more limited than you want to admit, so budgeting your resources makes good sense. It’s smarter to acknowledge how you can fool yourself before you end up facing an unnecessary negative cash flow situation. Fortunately, a little planning goes a long way to ease your concerns.
You are riding a wave of self-confidence, but it’s also easy to gloss over practical details that can get you into trouble today. Relying on your common sense now instead of your optimism is a good idea, but it’s not easy to keep your feet on the ground. Your visionary powers are strong, tricking you to think that you’re invincible. Positive thinking will improve the situation, but ignoring the facts makes things worse. Don’t avoid reality just because it’s unpleasant.
You may try to be rational in your approach to a complicated situation now that the Sun is shining in your sensible sign. Unfortunately, the current circumstances can defy logical analysis. Instead of unsuccessfully attempting to stay on the straight and narrow path, give yourself permission to be inspired by your imagination. Don’t try to justify your choices to anyone; simply trust in the process. Your intuition will not steer you wrong today.
Your dreams may be the source of inspiration today, but they can also lead you in a more practical direction than you realize. The Moon’s visit to your 11th House of Long-Term Goals lures you out of the present reality and into a world of potential. Luckily, these imaginative excursions can have a lasting impact on what comes next in your life. Instead of losing yourself in fantasyland, consciously paint your future with the colors of your mind.
You may be feeling very sure of yourself now, believing that you have the ability to improve your career path simply through the power of positive thought. Unfortunately, your visions might be slightly warped, enabling you to view your future through rose-colored glasses. Although there’s no reason to assume the worst, don’t avoid difficult facts just because you’re able to see so much good wherever you look. A reality check only improves your chances for success.
