It doesn’t matter that you want to do something crazy today that goes against everyone’s expectations; you have obligations that take precedence over your urge to escape. Instead of kicking back now, you would be better off putting your shoulder to the wheel and focusing on work. Whether you have job-related projects or domestic chores, don’t postpone them any longer. Your unwavering sense of purpose will reward you with the privilege of being able to take time off once you are finished.
You can turn challenging work into fun today, because you have enough sense to make the best of any situation. You may be so clever and cunning in your approach that your coworkers actually believe that you’re enjoying yourself and offer to pitch in and help. But you’re no Tom Sawyer because you’ll paint the fence or do nearly any other job now even if no one else shows up. A job well done brings you real satisfaction all by itself.
You might stuff more into your day than you can manage, but that won’t keep you from trying to do everything. Ironically, you would accomplish more if you just stopped long enough to make a sensible plan. Although you often like to figure out what you’re doing on the fly, it’s a frivolity you can’t afford now. Be realistic and cut back on your activities until you establish a more sustainable pace.
You may have a brilliant idea that enables you to perform up to someone else’s expectations while actually earning more independence in the process. You would like to escape from an overly rigid routine and, thankfully, your good-natured approach to work today could be the catalyst you need. But wishing for things to change isn’t enough; you need to have a concrete plan and be willing to work hard in order to have a shot at breaking free.
You may feel safe while you’re on familiar ground at work or at home today, but alluring Venus is tempting you to try something new. Unfortunately, it’s not a wise idea to drop everything in search of joyful indulgences until you take care of your basic financial chores, such as paying your bills and balancing your accounts. The order of things is important now, so set intelligent priorities and then stick with them.
You could be very self-critical as you do your own performance review today. Nothing that anyone else says will be enough to let you off the hook. There’s no escape; you need to process your disappointment and deal with the discouragement that recently surfaced. Although self-doubt isn’t useful, constructive self-analysis leads you to new insights about yourself.
The Moon’s entry into your 12th House of Secrets today suggests that hidden obstacles are more problematic than obvious ones. You might have a hunch that you are missing an important piece of information, but you can’t figure out where to uncover it or even what it is. Thankfully, you can prevent frustration by simply accepting your current limitations. Your positive thinking can be your greatest strength now.
You’re feeling more social today as the Moon enters your 11th House of Community. Although you still want to accomplish a lot at work, you don’t have the same drive that you might have had yesterday and prefer to spend time with your friends, instead. It’s likely that they will rise to the occasion and support your plans, even if they don’t agree with what you want to do.
Instead of accepting anyone else’s authority now, you are ready to take charge of the situation yourself. Although others may be fully capable of handling whatever’s happening today, you believe that your combination of organizational skills and applicable knowledge gives you an important edge. Don’t be afraid to let everyone know what your plan is prior to your implementation. Including others makes it easier for them to jump in and help you reach your goals.
It might be wise to hold back your feelings today as the Moon shifts into analytical Virgo. But you could feel incapable of seeing the big picture now and are even tempted to cancel a trip to someplace special because you don’t have enough time. Don’t get too discouraged; there may be a very good reason to stay close to home, even if it takes a few days to see the logic of your thinking.
You’re itching to break out of an old relationship pattern, but you have enough common sense now to bide your time and see what happens, instead of doing something you might later regret. Unfortunately, you don’t want to negotiate away your independence, making you a tough partner these days. Nevertheless, you won’t be happy unless you can find a way to express your personal freedom. Even while asserting your self-reliance, showing up with warmth and honesty will help your cause.
You might believe that you can float along in a current relationship, yet your friend or lover might want more of a commitment than you’re willing to make. Discussing specific issues could scare the heck out of you now, even if your partner seems to enjoy the conversation. Don’t just give in; you have a lot to learn now by exploring your resistance. If you acquiesce without expressing your needs, you could set a bad precedence for the days ahead.
