Meeting your professional obligations can be a struggle if your heart isn’t into your work, but you must deliver the goods anyhow. Although your weekend may include a few enjoyable social activities, it’s still tough to take your mind off your responsibilities.
You might say yes to the fun, but continue to worry about your commitments. Nevertheless, the all-or-nothing Scorpio Moon urges you to make an impulsive decision and stick with it no matter what. You can’t control every situation and its outcome, but you can control your attitude and how you respond.
Establishing boundaries is a necessary ingredient to any relationship, but imposing rules unilaterally increases stress rather than reducing it. Crossing an emotional gulf becomes a top priority today as your key planet Venus engages in a tug-of-war with karmic Saturn.
Talking about your concerns is a useful step forward, but won’t likely lead to resolution. Nevertheless, it’s healthier to remain true to your heart. Author Jonatan Martensson wrote, “Feelings are like waves. You cannot stop them from coming but you can decide which ones to surf.”
You might need to reconsider your activities because of fiscal logistics. However, the situation could be more complex than a simple lack of cash. Someone else may be entangled in your decision as valuable Venus opposes naysaying Saturn in your 8th House of Joint Finances.
Whether it’s your partner, parent or another authority figure, your pursuit of pleasure is tied to another person’s destiny. Instead of acting on your own, discuss your options with those who have a stake in the game. Aesop wrote, “United we stand, divided we fall.”
Someone’s actions or words may trigger old issues of abandonment today. Although the current situation is completely different than your previous experience, it’s nearly impossible to separate the two. But closing down to protect yourself only increases the distance between you and others.
Your sense of isolation might seem insurmountable while cold Saturn in your 7th House of Others opposes sweet Venus in your sensitive sign. However, this too shall pass, and you can speed the process along by sharing your feelings rather than hiding them.
You don’t want others to know if your pride has been wounded today. However, your self-esteem might suffer if you over-personalize someone’s words. Fortunately, there’s no reason to fall into the role of a victim. Giving voice to your concerns requires courage, but the risk is well worth the reward.
People will likely support you beyond your expectations if you’re willing to acknowledge your fears. Author Paulo Coelho wrote, “The strongest love is the love that can demonstrate its fragility.”
You take your role as peacemaker very seriously today, but your friends and family might think you’re being too bossy. You want to get to the source of the emotional chill that seems to have everyone on edge now. Unfortunately, your approach to fixing the interpersonal tension could be a bit heavy-handed for everyone else’s tastes.
In fact, you may be very surprised to discover your discomfort is perpetuating the current negativity now. When you realize there is nothing to fix outside of your own feelings, the ill will magically begins to dissipate on its own.
You’re unhappy if it appears as if someone is trying to control you behavior, even if they don’t make any specific demands. Your current situation at work or at home may already be set in place and there’s little you can do to alter the structure.
In fact, you might be expected to maintain the status quo by burying your true feelings. Nevertheless, you are not required to moderate your reactions simply to put others at ease. Communicating your needs is the start to reclaiming your power. Author Bill Vaughan wrote, “One of the quickest ways to become exhausted is by suppressing your feelings.”
Your beliefs are changing as you learn new information today, prompting you to reevaluate your involvement in a cause. People might try to persuade you that you’re making a mistake if you withdraw your support.
Nevertheless, you intuitively know what feels right now that the reactive Moon is back in your passionate sign, and you won’t likely be swayed by anyone else’s logic. Mark Twain said, “Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.”
You might not be at the top of your game today — or, at least, that’s what you think. Actually, your self-esteem may be more affected than your performance when vulnerable Venus opposes somber Saturn in your 2nd House of Self-Worth. Thankfully, you can overcome most difficulties with your current methodical approach to problem solving.
But you must concentrate and not scatter your healing energy if you wish to achieve success. Oprah Winfrey said, “Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.”
When you feel overly vulnerable, you tend to overcompensate by exhibiting higher levels of authority. But there’s a significant difference between earning respect and just assuming control. People around you can distinguish between these two strategies of leadership.
Thankfully, they are ready to stand with you if you display the characteristics of being someone worth following. President John Quincy Adams wrote, “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.”
You believe you’re a pro when it comes to managing your schedule today, but you experience a rude awakening if the support of your close friends and family isn’t there when you need it. At first, you may wonder if your expectations are too high but then you remember all the times you’ve shown up for others.
Honestly, you’re not keeping score; it’s just that you know you’re not asking anything you wouldn’t do for them. Epicurus wrote, “Freedom is the greatest fruit of self-sufficiency.”
You may be in a relationship that is flirting dangerously with the line between casual and intimate. Or you’re simply curious about pursuing a new friendship. In either case, you might be struggling to decide whether to make a move or to retreat.
Unfortunately, a stressful Venus-Saturn opposition stretches between your 5th House of Romance and your 11th House of Social Networks, cooling your desires and feeding your doubts. Continue to interact with a smile on your face, but reserve making any long-term commitments until you are feeling more secure. Love is a long and winding road.
