You’d like to believe that what you see is what you get today, but things are not as they appear. Although you might think that you’re in control, reality doesn’t seem to conform to your perceptions. Instead of pretending that you’re in charge, it’s wise to acknowledge that the job is more than you can handle. Try a more contemplative approach while waiting for a better time initiate change.
You may be drawn into someone’s emotional drama today with the Moon in your 7th House of Relationships, but you cannot rely on your feelings to guide your response to the situation. Ironically, ignoring your intuition isn’t a better strategy because a logical approach won’t prove any better. Rather than trying to be an authority now, admit you don’t have the answers. Just practice being a good listener; your compassion will help more than you think.
Don’t try to understand the complexities of a relationship today because mischievous Mercury’s retrograde turn in your 7th House of Others can muddle communication. If you believe that you can unravel the mysteries of a misunderstanding now, you’ll probably just end up frustrated. However, if you’re willing to allow the current situation to unfold naturally, the answers will become apparent in their own time. In the meantime, enjoy your fantasies without trying to make them real.
Following your gut instincts could lead you into a situation where bad judgment further complicates your life. Although you think you know how all the pieces fit together now, the mystery is more complicated than you realize. Unfortunately, your current tendency to believe you can meet all your obligations isn’t necessarily based on reality. Instead of dreaming about the possibilities, rely on common sense to keep your feet on the ground.
You can see the good times ahead and may be very eager for what’s next. If it seems like the hard work is over you might be glossing over some important facts. Paradoxically, your overconfidence could be a deterrent to success because it leaves little room to accept help from others. Find an open-minded approach that still allows the possibility for you to learn more and grow.
Clever Mercury, your ruling planet, can create a pile of mischief today as he turns retrograde in your 4th House of Foundations. You may be concerned that you missed your opportunity, but time is slowing down to give you a chance to rebuild a solid base to your life if you don’t take on too much. However, you may need to let go of the truth you think you know. Approaching the future with an attitude of a beginner is better than thinking you know it all.
An unusual turn of events could complicate your life today as Mercury turns retrograde in your 3rd House of Immediate Environment. Unfortunately, everyone seems to think that you can sort everything out. Thankfully, your positive attitude is your greatest strength now; your plan will likely work if you believe in yourself. Just don’t push your luck too far; knowing your limitations helps to ensure your success.
Although you may feel as if you’ve worked yourself into a corner, you now have a window of opportunity to turn things around. However, it could take more time than you realize, so don’t frustrate yourself by trying to do everything all at once. A positive attitude helps, but showing up over-eager could put others off because they know that your show of confidence is false. Even if you’re facing real deadlines, remember that acting before it’s time won’t help you or anyone else.
The Sun’s anxious quincunx to your ruling planet Jupiter encourages you to take on more than you can effectively handle. No matter how visionary you think you are today, you still don’t have all the answers within your scope. Although you might be the one who can usually put the big picture into a coherent plan, it’s time to let someone else share the responsibility now. But this isn’t about giving up; it’s merely about recognizing your limits.
You believe in karma — that if you do your job well, success should follow. But inflated expectations can set you up for disappointment, unless you acknowledge the fact that life doesn’t come with this any guarantees. Nevertheless, do the best you can, even if positive results seem elusive. Trying to get noticeable results too soon will only add to your frustration. Sticking to your original plan is still your safest path to continued progress.
Being in the social spotlight can seem like a bit too much now, making you wish that you could be less visible. Even if you try to keep your feelings to yourself, you still might not escape from the public eye. Instead of hiding from others, find ways to enjoy the attention. If you act in an upbeat manner when others are around, you’ll end up having more time for contemplation when you’re alone.
You’re not a stranger to the magical realms of imagination, but your eagerness to jump into a daydream can create problems today because there’s so much to do in the real world. Unfortunately, it’s difficult to know what makes the most sense because everything looks better than it actually is. Exercising a bit of self-restraint may be your key to success since it will give you extra time to attend to important details that can ultimately make the difference between failure and success.
