If you keep going full speed ahead, you may get where you are going in good time, but have little energy to enjoy the visit. If anybody at any time has ever deserved a break from their relentless personal and professional pursuits, it is you right now. Ease up on the proverbial accelerator and let things coast for a while. You have set enough in motion. Much of what you have designed can and will operate just fine on automatic pilot. The momentum will carry you forward for a while.
Things are perfect, right? Well maybe they are not perfect, but things seem to be rolling along pretty well, especially when you compare your current situation with that of a year or two ago. You have just about everything you need these days -- except, perhaps, love that thrives at the deepest levels of intimacy. If you want that, you will have to invest more than you have been willing to give in recent months. You will have to take a risk, but it will be worth it.
Could it be that you donât know whether you should extend the hand of friendship or raise the fist of power? Do you let down the drawbridge or rally the troops? If you seem to be conflicted about a certain work/life situation, you may need to seek the advice of a long-trusted sage. It seems there is very little the mind and the body can agree on these days, and the direction your professional life is about to take is no exception. Donât do anything rash -- in fact, donât do anything at all, until you get some clarity.
For a reason unknown to you, you suddenly become well-known as the expert in a reputable technical or creative field. You know everything worth knowing on a certain subject, and people come from all over to hear what your opinions are concerning it. However, someone who could really benefit from your wisdom simply does not care. Appeal to a higher authority before the situation gets any further out of hand. The power of suggestion is definitely on your side right now, Cancer.
You are champing at the bit, irritated by the slowdown and ready to jump ship and swim to a faster one. Well, perhaps it is time you relaxed. Even though it may seem that you are getting nowhere fast when it comes to matters that are near and dear to your heart, the truth is that your personal evolution is progressing at its own speed. To try to force things to move themselves along would be to jeopardize some recent positive developments. Instead of trying to control the outside, control the inside.
You donât need to beat your own drum or toot your own horn if you want to attract attention to yourself. Rather, you only have to rise to the challenge as you know you can. Donât shy away from a daunting task if you expect to win over someone who was an archrival in the very recent past. Right now they need something or someone to believe in. If you trust that you are the hero, you will come through with flying colors. Accept the challenge.
You arrive in the perfect place at the worst time. An overly ambitious reach might just get your hand slapped. Cash in your chips and call it an early night, or else you might find that you have much more than you can -- or need -- to handle. Bear in mind that the problem did not begin with you nor did you complicate matters. The Fates are simply heaving curve balls your way. If you give yourself some space and time to let a new perspective formulate, you will probably save yourself a headache or two.
While there are certain benefits to be had in sticking to a routine and letting yourself fall into the natural rhythm of life, there are also certain dangers in this as well. Things may have become too predictable, mechanical and routine over these last few months. If that is the case, you can jazz things up by bringing out sides of your personality that have long been hidden. Free up that side that used to thrive on improvisation and innovation. You need to bend, break and obliterate the rules to see if they are worth keeping.
Do you actually need to carry the heavy load that you have taken on? Someone you work with would be happy to take on a little more responsibility. No one will judge you badly for passing on a few small tasks. You may even be more productive because of it. A freer existence will make you light on your feet, your heart singing with each step. Try on a new attitude and see if it is really you. Would not it be nice to take a real vacation this year, instead of being a slave to your job and only taking a few days or a week?
Your carefully constructed empire is the envy of many, Capricorn, and you are leading people even though you may not be aware of it. That is because you tend to do it through action and example, rather than through a lot of lofty words. There is no question that you deserve everything you can get, so now is the time to take control of your destiny. Donât be afraid to cast your visions in all directions and speak out in the loud, happy voice for which you are known. You are radiating confidence, so take advantage of it.
It is a good idea to spend the day looking over your shoulder, Aquarius, because an old mistake finally catches up with you. There is no hiding from anyone -- especially yourself. On some level you may have been expecting this. You knew when you started that if you played with fire, you were bound to get burned. At least your flight from the consequences is finally over. Take your medicine, correct your course and move on. The worst thing you could do is further avoid the situation.
You have to keep in the forefront of your mind the goals, rules and methods that the whole group has agreed upon. Even though nobody aboard this particular boat is sure where you are headed, someone has to be the leader. If you can take the helm at the beginning of the trip, someone else will probably be willing to fill in later on. After that, you will be able to negotiate much more easily. The truth is that no one person can do everything, but you do make a great team!
