The Daily Motivator for May 19th – Enjoy this very moment

Enjoy this very moment

You don’t need ideal conditions in order to enjoy an ideal life. You can simply make the choice to do so.

You don’t have to wait until the perfect moment to be happy. Any moment and every moment will do, including this one.

Whatever you’re doing, add a smile and a positive attitude to it. Life’s beauty is everywhere, so make the empowering choice to see it everywhere.

You can choose to complain about your lot in life and to feel sorry for yourself, or you can choose to enjoy the wonder that’s all around you. Keep in mind that there’s valuable opportunity in everything, and a positive perspective enables you to tap into that opportunity.

There are plenty of problems to be fixed, wrongs to be made right, and obstacles to overcome. And the most effective way to move forward is with joy, not with bitterness.

Challenge yourself to enjoy this very moment, fully, completely, sincerely, authentically. And learn to put the power of joy in everything you do.

Your Daily Horoscopes for November 27th

Our desire to make intelligent decisions today might actually cause us to get bogged down in indecision instead. The analytical Virgo Moon’s stressful aspects with fiery Mars, powerful Pluto, chatty Mercury, stern Saturn and dreamy Neptune keep our moods in flux. Fortunately, our attention is diverted from the chaos when the Moon enters fair-minded Libra at 4:59 pm EST, allowing us to see both sides of any issue as we seek to restore balance.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You don’t like being asked to choose between your professional and personal life. However, your role is changing and your job duties may infringe on your private world more than you prefer. Unfortunately, your resistance to the new arrangement can lead to frustration. Even if you’re stressed out today, try to be optimistic about the future without slipping into denial. Facing the current dilemma and dealing with work issues now enables you to maintain a positive attitude about your future.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You aren’t one to ignore the facts, but today you may be tempted to avoid the truth to get through a complicated predicament. Thankfully, you can see the positive side of a difficult issue even if it seems irresolvable in the moment. Although the ultimate answer might be just beyond your reach now, going through the motions of seeking a sensible solution helps to boost your confidence along the way to achieving your goals.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You may be struggling to get to the bottom of a complicated situation involving your family, but it’s not clear which stories are the true ones. Usually, you’re pretty good at discerning fact from fiction, but today you are holding everyone to a higher standard. Don’t waste time demanding an unattainable level of accuracy; instead, just do your best with the information you’re given. When in doubt, trust your intuition.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Someone may claim you’re so gullible that you believe nearly anything — so think twice before you blindly accept what you are being told today. However, it’s not about you being naive; instead, you’re capable of seeing the potential where others might just pass it by. Remember, there’s nothing wrong with having a positive attitude as long as you check your facts before making assumptions that could get you into trouble. Don’t let others rain on your parade.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You can’t decide if it’s a smart idea to accept additional responsibilities today. A new project could lead to the recognition you want and even to a promotion. But you could underestimate the amount of effort that’s required to meet your deadline. Even if the whole deal sounds promising, it’s still not wise to make your life more complicated now by taking on more than you can deliver. Take your time to analyze all the facts before making a final decision.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Relying on your common sense can be tricky now because you keep changing your mind as new information comes to your attention. It may be challenging to remain optimistic, yet it’s important to consider if you are actually fooling yourself. You can see the world through two different lenses today. One makes everything appear better and the other one makes things look worse. Keep in mind that the truth is found somewhere in the middle.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Laying your feelings on the line is never easy, but if you don’t share what’s on your mind today, your frustration could push you right to the edge. Fortunately, everything will become easier for a while once you choose to share whatever you were hiding. You still have a lot of work to do, but you can accomplish anything if you truly believe in yourself. Trusting the process isn’t as great a risk as it seems

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Although the overall prognosis may be quite excellent today, you still have to face your own shadow before you can fully realize the potential that’s all around you. This isn’t about any one specific interaction or a single decision you’re required to make. Your attitude is directly impacted by your thoughts; if you believe that you are successful, then you are. Put your amazing intensity to work and make something magical happen now.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Your extra efforts will likely pay off with a bonus check, the possibility of a promotion or at least words of praise. But it isn’t very smart to think that the world owes you something, for you aren’t entitled to rewards you haven’t earned. Ultimately, you won’t do as well if you believe personal satisfaction is guaranteed. Stop worrying about what you want in the present moment and set your sights on a more significant long-term goal. Once you have a plan, get to work.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You may not understand why no one has acknowledged you today for your positive contribution. You feel as if you’re doing well responding to all the stressful circumstances, and you know that you deserve more credit now than you’re currently receiving. Nevertheless, your lesson is that accomplishing your goals requires more time than you initially expected. Thankfully, once you accept that success take time to achieve, you might not be so frustrated in the moment. Find comfort in a job well done.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You want to be known as a considerate friend who puts the wishes of others first. But taking care of everyone’s needs except your own isn’t a path to happiness. Unfortunately, you could be so involved with doing what’s right that you inadvertently overlook the much-needed support of an ally. Show your vulnerability by acknowledging that you have needs, too, and you don’t always know the best way to get what you want.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You might appear quite enthusiastic about something you are doing today, but you could just be hiding your fears for the sake of simplicity. You may feel as if there are no correct answers anyway, but don’t let this concern stop you. Instead, respond to the current stresses by showing up with an open heart, even if you don’t have a long-term plan in place. It turns out that living in the present moment is the best possible strategy you could have now.
