It’s all too easy to convince yourself that it’s safe to share your most intimate thoughts today. Although there is a moment and a place for such emotional disclosure, you may be so eager to bridge the gap between you and someone else that you reveal too much information all at once.
There are certainly times to take a risk when deepening a relationship, but this may not be one of them. Count to ten before expressing your feelings. And then, count to ten again.
You’re willing to give others the benefit of the doubt today, but you might end up being disappointed if you can’t acknowledge the facts. Be wary of people who promise you the Moon or anything that’s not theirs to give. Thankfully, you’re not likely to be misled if you trust your intuition.
But don’t walk away from an opportunity just because it reminds you of something else that didn’t work out the way you expected. Moderating extreme optimism or pessimism creates your best shot at happiness.
You may be so confident of your ability to get results at work today that you agree to do the impossible. Every time your boss, a coworker or a client asks for a favor, you’re so quick to reply that you might acquiesce before realizing you should have said no.
Instead of letting others down by waiting until it’s too late, tell them as soon as possible what you can and can’t do. Better yet, be realistic about your delivery schedule prior to taking on a new responsibility. Paulo Coelho wrote, “When you say yes to others, make sure you are not saying no to yourself.”
You’re on a creative roll today, and you don’t want anything to disrupt your productive flow. Unfortunately, an insistent coworker continues to interrupt you with incessant requests. Although you’re expected to be attentive to the needs of others, it’s imperative to set clear boundaries.
You are capable of pulling off a disappearing act, but a sudden retreat could cause more trouble than it’s worth. Fortunately, informing others of your dilemma is your quickest solution to reclaiming your time. You might be happily surprised with where your unrestrained honesty can take you.
You may be deeply appreciative of someone in your life who cares for you in a very special way. This person might even remind you of a significant ally from your childhood. Reactivating a memory stirs feelings of nostalgia as you attempt to re-create magic from the past.
However, getting stuck in the good old days is a poor use of your time today. Be bravehearted and live in the present moment. Oprah Winfrey said, “Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”
Your curiosity could get the best of you today, especially if you end up wasting your energy pursuing trivial information. Keep in mind that your inquisitive nature has a life of its own when you are excited about learning something new.
Rather than concerning yourself with political expediency, deepen your connection with others and live your life for a meaningful purpose. Author Brigitte Nicole said, “If you don’t follow your heart, you might spend the rest of your life wishing you had.”
You may be obsessed with finalizing the details of a substantial acquisition now, but it’s possible to put the proverbial cart before the horse. Rather than worrying about the cost, direct your attention away from the individual purchase and onto the larger question of whether you need it or not.
The biggest potential problem is not the price tag; it’s about buying the wrong thing. Bill Gates said, “Success today requires the agility and drive to constantly rethink, reinvigorate, react, and reinvent.”
Your feelings are being stretched hither, thither and yon. You enjoy expanding your heart to absorb a wider perspective, but you might experience pangs of insecurity as the stability grows more tenuous throughout the day.
Although Scorpio is a fixed sign, you’re eager to adapt to your changing environment now. You intuitively know that your current flexibility is the single-most important key to the door to your future. Physicist Georg C. Lichtenberg said, “I cannot say whether things will get better if we change; what I can say is they must change if they are to get better.”
The antennae of your brain are picking up strange signals from the outer edges of the universe today. Although you are quite excited about receiving such extraordinary messages, you might believe you’re not the right person for this job.
In fact, you may even want to turn off your receiver entirely. Nevertheless, once you share your weird experiences with a trusted friend, you gain reassurance from the realization that you’re not alone. Author Keith Ferrazzi wrote, “Nothing exists in isolation. We have to stop pretending we are individuals that can go it alone.”
Your high hopes are set on your friends today, and you believe they will rush to your rescue when called. However, people need a good reason to come out of the woodwork in order to help. You may think you’re in a bit of a jam but, fortunately, miracles certainly do happen.
Don’t sit around waiting for assistance to arrive, but if and when it does, receive it with open arms. Explain your predicament with an appreciative heart. Ironically, you’re not really looking for an answer now; you simply need to plant the seeds.
Your career is beginning to take on a life of its own. For the first time in a while, you can see a clear path into the future and feel confident about your progress. Although your perceptions are probably accurate, you may be jumping to conclusions based on your wishes rather than on the facts.
Back up and reconsider what you know and then carefully put the pieces together until you see the patterns you previously missed. The more you understand now, the closer you are to success.
Your positive thinking is a critical component to your current situation. It’s easy to see how your attitude influences your immediate future. Naturally, a healthy dose of self-confidence goes a long way toward impacting your success, but too much of it can create its own set of problems. Sloppy thinking or laziness sneaks in if you believe you cannot fail.
Fortunately, you can maintain an air of humility that leaves room for uncertainty. Norman Vincent Peale wrote, “Change your thoughts and you change your world.”
