Cape Breton Home of our Hearts
You may try to please everyone today, but you could end up alienating others if you don’t consider your needs, too. The social Libra Moon in your 7th House of Relationships tempts you to deny your own desires in favor of taking care of someone else. Unfortunately, codependency won’t help you or your partner reach satisfaction. Avoid the trappings of frustration by expressing what you want as honestly as possible. Friendship and intimacy grow from a foundation of integrity and trust.
You want to be of service to others now that the Moon is in your 6th House of Work, but making money isn’t necessarily your primary concern. You might be drawn to helping those who are less fortunate than you, or, maybe, you wish to pay back a debt to society to balance old karma. In any case, it’s healthy to know your limits by considering what you’re willing to give up to achieve your altruistic goals. Making commitments is serious business, so think twice before overextending yourself.
You’re determined to find ways to alter the daily routine of your life, but you’re not interested in upsetting the status quo. You just want to provide room for making improvements. Perhaps you have grown tired of having so many good ideas, only to discover that the big things in your life remain unchanged. Unfold your new goals slowly; the tiniest modifications can have the longest lasting impact.
Family dynamics are highlighted when the Moon returns to your 4th House of Security today. But if parenting is your primary responsibility, then you might just have less free time available for other activities now. But having a good time isn’t your primary motivation; it’s more about being available to those you love, even if it prevents you from doing something you enjoy. Fortunately, the quiet satisfaction derived from nurturing a loved one may be the greatest gift you can receive.
You may require some downtime today so you can think about the recent twists and turns in your life. Unfortunately, the road ahead is not very easy to navigate, so it’s a sensible idea to visualize a more direct route to success. Don’t be concerned if there aren’t immediate changes in your circumstances, for it may take some time for the current resistance to fade away.
You could run into a speed bump on the road of life today and though it requires you to slow down, there’s no need for a detour. Just take unexpected events in stride and do the best you can. Don’t allow yourself to succumb to discouragement, even if you face a major setback. Consider obstacles as perfect opportunities to keep improving your plan. Strengthening your body and mind now will increase your chances to succeed.
It’s harder these days to take your responsibilities lightly because the Moon and somber Saturn are both in your sign, setting the tone for the day. Don’t waste precious energy trying to put on a cheerful face for others, just because that’s what they expect from you. It isn’t your job to make everyone feel okay about the issues you face. Nevertheless, it’s up to you to look inward and ask yourself tough questions so you can gain clarity about the next phase of your life.
You may not want to talk about your emotions with the Moon and Saturn hiding out in your 12th House of Secrecy. But your need to be alone doesn’t include your very best friends or lover, since you long for the deep emotional connections that can break through your current isolation. Remember that interpersonal walls are created by mutual consent, so open your heart to invite in those with whom you want to share your life.
You only have so much free time available today, but you still want to escape for a bit, anyhow. Meanwhile, your workmates and friends keep reminding you of how many tasks you still have to complete. There are only so many hours in the day, so you may not be able to take time off to play now. Nevertheless, remaining focused on what’s most crucial will be rewarded later on. There’s no need to explain your choices; just follow your instincts and take care of the business at hand.
You may feel a lot of stress now, but this is your perfect chance to prove your competence to your boss. The reflective Moon and karmic Saturn in your 10th House of Career marks the culmination of your recent efforts or the beginning of an exciting new project. In either case, this is no time to relax. Don’t worry if no one seems to be acknowledging your contribution. Recognition is likely to happen soon enough.
Even well thought-out plans could meet up with opposition, but your ideas can still reach fruition if you’re open to making smart changes. Don’t be stubborn; acting as if you’re on top won’t help you reach your goals any faster. Something must change; fortunately, others are willing to meet you halfway if you demonstrate some flexibility. There’s no need to give up if you’re wise enough to modify your strategy.
You could face a difficult situation today if you must deal with someone who holds authority over you while remaining unsupportive of your efforts. It may be a difficult climb and although it requires extra determination to reach your destination, the process also makes you stronger. Don’t complain about your obligations; just roll up your sleeves and get busy. If you put forth your best effort the rewards will eventually follow.
