You may experience a rather awkward moment today when you know what you want but ask for something different. However, this isn’t about intentional dishonesty or nefarious motives; you’re really not trying to mislead anyone at all.
The truth is you find it difficult to be definitive when your own desires are running at cross purposes. It may be helpful to change the rules of the game now. Temporarily set aside your personal needs and choose simplicity over complexity, instead. You always have time for the things you put first.
One minute, you’re sitting on top of the world, feeling grateful about all the wonderful blessings in your life. Nevertheless, a recent disappointment might sneak in through your back door uninvited, and take you tumbling down a rabbit hole of self-doubt.
Thankfully, you are blessed with the support of a network of friends and associates who go out of their way to make sure you know that you are loved. Nevertheless, this emotional roller coaster is an exhausting drain of your energy. Although you may not realize it, you can stop the ride and get off at any time.
You might be puzzled as you try to untangle a recent event that didn’t go the way you expected. You’re willing to assist others in minor aspects of their job today, believing there will be people available when you ask for help at a later date.
In fact, your insatiable curiosity won’t let you be satisfied with simplistic rationalizations which fail to match the intensity of the moment. Further investigation is necessary; take your time and be thorough before jumping to any conclusions. Better smart than sorry.
You barely have time to acknowledge your current desires before your heart has moved on to someone or something else. Ironically, you keep this secret tucked away so well that no one has a clue as to how fast your wheels are spinning beneath the surface.
Instead of allowing your unfulfilled needs to hijack your day, just listen to the sounds of a murmuring brook, the crashing ocean waves or the impenetrable silence of your own imagination. Dancer Katherine Dunham wrote, “Go within every day and find the inner strength so that the world will not blow your candle out.”
You can’t help but love engaging in lighthearted interactions with people in your personal or professional network. Although you prefer to keep things easy and breezy, someone may want you to slow down enough to settle into a more revealing conversation. However, you’re likely to use evasive tactics and steer clear of anything that might lead to emotional vulnerability now.
Nevertheless, there’s much to be said in favor of developing a deeper connection with someone you trust. Author Cheryl Richardson wrote, “People start to heal the moment they feel heard.”
There are a couple of different paths you wish to pursue professionally, but you’re unable to choose one over the other. Unfortunately, practical logistics prevent you from following two separate trajectories at the same time. Your frustration stems from your faulty assumption that you must make a choice now that will influence your future.
Instead of looking far down the road, keep your eyes directly in front of you and only make decisions that produce an immediate impact. Confucius wrote, “The man who moves a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.”
You may be struck with a bout of wanderlust and can’t get traveling off your mind. Although there are certain places you wish to see, you’re ready to pack your bags and go nearly anywhere now. Unfortunately, taking a trip requires you to jump through so many hoops that it doesn’t even seem worthwhile.
Money concerns might be at the top of your list, but several other issues must be resolved, too. Don’t try to fix everything overnight. And, more importantly, keep your dreams of adventure alive. Anything is possible with determination and time.
Your independence is vitally important to you now, especially as you make decisions about work, money and your future. Paradoxically, it may seem as if others become more possessive and attempt to control you as you express your desire for freedom.
A push-pull dance might ensue as you and your partner try to establish structures to a relationship that you both can accept. Shakespeare wrote, “Let every eye negotiate for itself and trust no agent.” Only you know where you can compromise.
You might try to avoid the spotlight today because you believe you can accomplish more behind the scenes rather than on center stage. However, you don’t want to be invisible because you thrive in social situations. You wish to be admired by your closest friends and associates as someone who is upbeat and inspirational.
But you also want others to acknowledge how much you contribute at home or in the office. Novelist William Makepeace Thackery wrote, “Next to excellence is the appreciation of it.”
You want to incorporate new routines into your day in order to improve your health. You probably have already done some research and might even possess a list of things you can do in order to upgrade your lifestyle.
Although you like to indulge in delicious food, you’re more interested now in the physical benefits derived from each item on your menu. Of course, diet, exercise and hygiene are personal choices, but there’s plenty to be gained by involving someone else now, like a nutritionist or a trainer, in your process. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry wrote, “A goal without a plan is just a wish.”
Your overriding motivation these days is to establish yourself as a success in your career of choice. You’re confident of your abilities but, ironically, your desire to be creative can negatively impact your professional obligations.
Fortunately, there are ways to continue living out your role as an artist while also meeting your responsibilities at work. It may require dedication to weave both worlds together, but your commitment to honor and integrity serves you well when pursuing your ambitions.
Although you may be unwilling to let your dreams wither on the vine, your current desire for financial and logistical stability encourages you to set them aside for a while. You are quite hopeful now that you’re starting to make progress in creating consistency in your life.
However, you still might struggle with your lack of discipline and restraint. One way to add balance back into your routine is to surround yourself with people who are known to be responsible. Basketball coach Tim Notke said, “Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard.”
