There is little room in your day for anything other than business. The sobering Moon-Saturn conjunction falls in your 10th House of Career, focusing your attention on furthering your ambitions and distinguishing yourself at work or in your community.
Although public recognition requires a serious commitment, you’re ready to do whatever it takes now. You have the taste of success on the tip of your tongue and you are eager to make an entire meal of it.
You may find yourself in an awkward situation where others are looking to you as a source of knowledge now. Unfortunately, you might think you don’t know as much as you should in order to be taken as an authority on the subject at hand.
However, your uncertainty could motivate you to learn everything you can as quickly as possible. There’s nothing wrong with working harder to be at the top of your game. Any effort you put in today will pay off for a long time to come. Expand your mind, expand your world.
Unspoken emotional undercurrents complicate an otherwise functional relationship today. Unexpected resistance from a close friend seems out of place at first, leaving you unsure of their motives. It may even feel as if something is being left unsaid and you want to get to the bottom of the situation.
Follow your instincts and ask whatever questions you think will give you the answers you want. Ultimately, your worries will likely prove to be unfounded. Nevertheless, your desire to uncover the truth could be a much-needed catalyst that breaks through existing boundaries to deepen a lasting partnership.
You might feel as if you’re being unjustly singled out today when someone criticizes your performance or throws a roadblock in front of your plans. However, it’s a mistake to take a friend’s lack of support as a personal attack when no one is actually out to get you.
There may be a genuine difference of opinion when it comes to judging the best way to do a job. Rather than slipping into a defensive mode, listen to what you’re being told. Your chances of success are enhanced if you can use what you learn now to improve your game.
You must acknowledge the amount of work in front of you as the deadline draws near. Although accomplishing everything in a timely manner might seem like a Herculean task, you actually have what it takes to come through this test like a superhero.
Instead of wasting any energy complaining about your situation, make a list of those chores that are still incomplete and get to work. Your ability to concentrate while under pressure will fuel your success.
You take your responsibilities to heart and therefore won’t declare it’s the weekend until you’ve met all your obligations. However, you still might resent the fact that other people are heading out to play while you still have work to finish.
But focusing on the activities of anyone else means you are missing the point. The only relevant issue is what you must do now in order to feel good about yourself. Fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld said, “Personality begins where comparison ends.”
Practicing unconditional love is easy when the other person is living up to your expectations. However, you may reach a point when the only way you can demonstrate how much you care today is by issuing an ultimatum.
The Moon is visiting rule-bound Capricorn where she joins judgmental Saturn in your 4th House of Foundations, urging you to lay down the law, along with the consequences of breaking it. Whether you must play a parental role in someone else’s life or they must parent you, there are lessons to learn now about the relationship between cause and effect.
You’re afraid of sending out more of a message than you intend today. Acting spontaneously is challenging because you must be cautious about everything you do and every thought you share now.
However, the less you communicate, the more others might fill in the unknown with their own stories, enabling them to increase the distance between reality and their fantasies. Don’t cut your words short; tell your story exactly as you mean it. Theologian Martin Luther wrote, “You are not only responsible for what you say, but also for what you do not say.”
It feels as if you must continue to make the same decision over and over again. But acting prudently won’t automatically set you down in a stable place where your work will be appreciated. The karmic Moon-Saturn conjunction occurs in your 2nd House of Personal Wealth, reminding you that even your best-laid plans can fall apart without much advance notice.
However, the current setbacks you face are not about defeat; they are road signs, directing you to your future. Author Seth Godin wrote, “Be bold, make mistakes, learn a lesson, and fix what doesn’t work.”
You are so certain of a recent decision that no one is going to convince you to change your mind today. You did not reach your current conclusions in haste, nor will you set them aside without serious review.
Nevertheless, your practical approach to life is so good at producing results that it leaves little room for waxing poetic. Although pragmatism can only take you so far, there’s no way to jump into the unknown without jumping into the unknown. Mark Twain wrote, “Why not go out on a limb? That’s where the fruit is.”
You can list many reasons why you should stay out of the limelight today, but the most important one is you don’t want all the attention. You may possess information that cannot be shared with anyone else, and the best way to keep a secret now is to remain physically isolated from others.
You’re quite happy with your temporary retreat, but it won’t last as long as you wish. In the meantime, stop worrying about all the things that could go wrong and focus on what could go right.
You’re eager to take your show on the road now, but you’re painfully aware of the harsh critics you are likely to encounter in the days ahead. Nevertheless, you might think you need more time to work out the logistics of your current performance.
Leaning on your friends and family helps to spread your base of stability far and wide. Buying more time is not an option today. A head full of fears has no space for dreams.
