It’s as if someone unlocked your cage and all of a sudden you are free to roam. However, you’re just as interested in freedom of thought as in freedom of motion. Unfortunately, you still must contend with others if they don’t approve of your errant ways.
Choose your battles wisely and save your warrior energy to defend only the most important matters. Author Mary Anne Radmacher wrote, “Courage doesn’t always roar, sometimes it’s the quiet voice at the end of the day saying I will try again tomorrow.”
In a perfect world, you would relax like a king or queen in your castle today while soaking up all the good vibrations coming your way. Although you might be lucky enough to experience the nurturing love of home and family, there may be a few trouble spots where something you say precipitates an emotional drama.
Hopefully, there’s no significant underlying issue that needs resolution. A disagreement could flare as the result of a simple misunderstanding. Avoid digging a hole too deep that you can’t climb out. Arianna Huffington wrote, “Life is a dance between making it happen and letting it happen.”
You could talk someone’s ear off today without even realizing that you are rambling on about nothing in particular. Thankfully, a casual remark from the other person may be enough to remind you to be quiet when you have nothing relevant to say.
However, unless you try to be more aware of your behavior, you might slip right back into trivial meanderings prompted by an entirely different subject. Don’t wait for anyone else to give you another reality check. Do it yourself. Sufi poet Rumi wrote, “Silence is an ocean. Speech is a river.”
Your carefully considered emotional disclosure may catch someone off guard today. Although it’s not uncommon for you to harbor feelings for others, it’s not as often that you go out on a limb and share your inner process. You may not like putting yourself in such a vulnerable position, but it is the only way to test the waters of a potential relationship.
Motivational speaker Trent Shelton said, “Never waste an opportunity to express your love to someone, because another opportunity is something life can’t promise.”
Your independent actions could alienate a close friend or lover today, especially if you don’t include them in your current plans. Unfortunately, your emotions may be lost on others unless you express your affection clearly.
However, you must walk a fine line because revealing your feelings too suddenly now might scare someone away before you even finish talking. You’re like Goldilocks, afraid of saying too little or too much, when all you want to do is find that sweet spot in the middle.
You’re more likely to hide your feelings today because you don’t want the entire tenor of a conversation to turn emotional. Your goal is efficiency and you would rather let your behavior speak for you. Nevertheless, you could easily overcompensate, saying so little that someone is left hanging without a clue about what you want.
Break your old pattern by gently bringing your inner process into the dialogue. Author Paulo Coelho wrote, “There is no time to leave important words unsaid.”
Social activities may be the focus of your day, but they could stir some uncomfortable feelings. Although you possess clarity about your desires, you’re willing to let go of some of your hopes for the sake of group harmony.
However, circumstances might push you to your limit today, causing you to acquiesce where you had specific preferences. Don’t give in unless you’re truly ready to embrace the new situation. Journalist Violet Blue wrote, “Don’t let anyone — no matter how important, famous, or powerful — make you feel ashamed about standing up for your boundaries.”
You understand that people are hoping you will show up and join the fun today, but you might prefer your solitude. Your dilemma is not a new one, yet others won’t likely understand the depth of your feelings about something that seems so simple to them.
Nevertheless, it may be fruitless to explain your thinking now; you’ll only confuse them further if you try. Follow your intuition but don’t forget to respectfully inform everyone of your plans. Human potential activist Bryant McGill wrote, “Get this through your head — you are not responsible for other people’s happiness.”
Your imagination is so consumed with an upcoming project today that it’s challenging to contain yourself. Normally, your friends and family expect nothing less from you than enthusiasm when sharing whatever adventure you envision next on your horizon. But you know your current dreams are not in line with their expectations.
You’re afraid they will likely react with disappointment or even anger now, so it’s best to keep your plans to yourself for a bit longer. Waiting for the right moment can make all the difference in the world.
You prefer to concentrate on subjects that impact your day rather than discussing irrational desires and vague generalities. Nevertheless, you might not have another option if a close friend or partner approaches you with an emotionally charged issue that demands immediate resolution.
Although you may resist untangling the complexities of unspoken feelings, your participation in the conversation brings a practical perspective to an unfolding melodrama. Humanitarian Albert Schweitzer wrote, “The purpose of human life is to serve and to show compassion and the will to help others.”
You may seem overly assertive today, but that’s because you’re weary of dealing with people standing in your way. Although you have a clear sense of your objectives, it becomes obvious that you haven’t thought through all the details yet.
You might attempt to brush aside someone’s questions when you realize you don’t have any good answers now. But staying open to constructive criticism could be the determining factor between your success and failure. Novelist Rachel Caine wrote, “Life is a work in progress.”
Although you make your best choices by trusting your intuition, the facts are undeniable now, forcing you to reconsider a recent decision. However, even those closest to you might not know you’re trying to eliminate an old habit or add a healthy practice to your daily routine.
Nevertheless, you feel as if you’re back to square one, uncertain about how to proceed. Obviously, you want to make a positive change, but it’s best to continue your research until you know you’re heading in the right direction. King Stanisław Leszczyński wrote, “To believe with certainty we must begin with doubting.”
