Although you may feel a bit lazy now, you’re still the one who quickly swings into action before considering the consequences. Often you can get away with overstepping your bounds, but your words have more impact on your friends and associates than you expect today. Exaggerating the facts or overselling your position won’t help you convince others that your idea is a solid one. Since you cannot avoid the truth for long, you might as well keep it real from the very beginning.
Your need for simplicity is a prime motivator now that the Moon has returned to your sign. You may be able to positively impact a complex situation by changing only a very few basic variables. Don’t try to pass yourself off as a master of details and nuance. Even if you wish that life wasn’t so complicated, focus on the big picture and let the rest fall into place on its own.
You are often able to safely get away with talking about nearly anything that pops into your mind. Now, however, even the simplest comment can turn into a major disagreement. Almost everything you say today seems to be misunderstood or blown out of proportion. Avoid the temptation to prove everyone wrong; concentrate on cooperating with others rather than competing with them.
You are not looking for trouble today, yet it could find you when you least expect it. Although a dynamic situation at work may demand your immediate attention, you might still be highly resistant to any form of change. Fortunately, your friends appreciate your ability to quickly grasp the subtleties of a complex situation. Step up to the plate and take the lead, but remember there’s no reason to make a big deal out of what you’re doing.
You could be caught between your confident head and your tender heart today, although you will most likely end up sweeping your emotions under the rug if you get the chance. You might think that rational thoughts are superior to feelings now, but logic doesn’t have to override your love. Turn the battle for control into a spiritual practice by opening communication channels while seeking balance in your life.
Your ruling planet Mercury is mischievous while in his retrograde phase, and today he tricks you into thinking you are outrageously clever. Nevertheless, you cannot get away with talking your way around an obstacle. You must make a decision whether to move forward on your current path or if you want to consider a variety of alternatives that can change the course of your life. The time is now; make up your mind and follow your heart.
It’s challenging to find a healthy balance in your relationships now, for you may simultaneously be told yes and no every time you ask a simple question. You are willing to go over the edge in order to establish your limits, but it will still be tough to follow the rules. Being an artist is one way of testing the reaction of the world around you. The situation is not as desperate as you may think, so slow down, take your time and find your way.
It may be easier for you to just show up and take control of the situation, if needed. Plot your course of action spontaneously today, rather than retreating to analyze a logical next step. Usually, you are the one who measures each and every thought, but now you’re eager to jump before knowing if the pool is even filled with water. In your haste to act, don’t try to detach yourself from your feelings, for they can still teach you quite a bit.
You are often so opinionated that you may inadvertently anger someone close to you. You’re ready to share your feelings with everyone today because you believe that it is just simpler to tell the truth. Ironically, you can become a bit too evasive when it comes time for a heartfelt emotional interaction. There’s nothing wrong with your desire to keep your feelings hidden as long as you continue to maintain your integrity.
You might not be able to escape the responsibilities still being placed on you with your key planet Saturn in the picture. You may become frustrated in your struggle to keep up with all that’s happening. However, you can shift the energy by simply agreeing to play according to the current rules of the game. You can regain your power when you acknowledge your limitations and stop taking on more than you can handle.
You may have to manage certain domestic affairs now without anyone outside of your home knowing about your challenges. Although you have valid reasons to keep things to yourself, you’re tempted to share personal information with an intimate friend or business partner. Broach a sensitive topic carefully, but don’t wait until it’s too late. Talk to a trustworthy companion today before the pressure makes a casual conversation impossible.
A kinder and gentler you is eagerly looking ahead, and yet your tone of voice might be forceful enough to scare someone away — even if you’re trying to bring him or her closer. It isn’t any fun to upset someone you really like, yet you can avoid unpleasant consequences by being thoughtful and considerate in all your interactions. Moderation works in your favor now, so carefully understate whatever you choose to share today.
