Sympathy and compassion are highlighted now. You are more understanding, sensitive, accepting, and nonjudgmental of others. Even if you normally have these traits, you will still find that you now gain a better appreciation and respect for people that you previously have neglected, ignored, or misunderstood. This is an excellent time to talk to family members, friends, or associates that you have had a feeling of distance or misunderstanding with. You are better able to reach a deep rapport and mutual understanding now. You are also more willing to forgive the mistakes of the past. You will find that at this time it is relatively easy for you to forgive others and drop old grudges and resentments. This is a spiritually and emotionally uplifting time that you should take advantage of. Forgive others and release any old hurts now, and you will find that the old problems can dissolve. Because many problems are started in early relationships with family members, particularly with parents, this process of forgiving and releasing hurt feelings can produce dramatic improvements in your life in the long run.
You are likely to distance yourself from others now, feeling the need to withdraw and reflect. Your thoughts are inclined to be heavy, critical, and pessimistic at this time, so it would be good to realize that you are only seeing part of the picture and perhaps seek the advice of an older, experienced person who has passed through some of the challenges you face. This can also be a time of leaving, separating from friends, and choosing a new way.
You are eager to discuss your thoughts and plans with others at this time and you may have a very fruitful brainstorming session, a spirited debate, or a very active meeting with others in which things really get accomplished. You are verbally assertive and can present your own plan or idea quite convincingly.
Mental demands, deadlines, or an unexpected "rush job" can generate a lot of stress right now. Tension headaches, edgy nerves, and snappishness are definitely possible, even if there are no external pressures. You are apt to be all revved up with no place to go. Try not to put yourself in situations that you know before hand may involve a lot of waiting, or if you must, bring something along to do. Differences in styles, personal tastes, aesthetic appreciation, or values is an issue in your life at this time. You may feel unloved or not valued due to differences in the way you and a significant other express affection. In social situations, you may well feel out of place, awkward, and ill at ease; perhaps you run into an old lover or are in a social setting which is distinctly different from the one you are familiar with. You are apt to be conciliatory and gracious about making adjustments and concessions, but you feel rather uncomfortable internally.
Acting on impulse, changing your usual routine, improvising and using your intuition rather than following a prescribed, logical way of doing things is called for now. The tempo of your life accelerates now. Expect a rather inconstant, unpredictable, but interesting time. This is a positive and fortunate time for business pursuits and career goals. Your goals and ambitions are molded into concrete reality at this time, and you have a vehicle for reaching your destination. Assistance can take many forms, such as a pianist finally obtaining a new, better piano to replace the old one, an artist or craftsman moving into a house that provides a better studio or workshop, or an enterprising business person landing a contract to undertake a major project. In one way or another, this is a time when you find ways to implement your dreams. The benefits do not come to you on a silver platter. It is up to you to use the tools and materials that are made available to you. Now you have the chance to do more and advance. Take full advantage of the opportunity and apply yourself energetically. You can carve out a much better life for yourself at this time.
You will feel the desire to make several minor, but significant, adjustments in your work. For example, if you are engaged in a business activity, you may discontinue some advertising, use new sources for various services that you use, assign new tasks to employees, change advertising to appeal to a new market, make changes in the product line, etc. The worst mistake you can make at this time is to procrastinate and not act on your ideas! At this time you have an excellent sense of balance and proportion, of how to efficiently meet goals and objectives, and you should utilize this sensitivity to improve upon existing situations.
You are more clear and objective about personal matters and your relationships, so this is a favorable time to iron out differences or come to a decision. Communicating openly with loved ones, taking a trip to visit friends, or going on an outing accompanied by one you love figures prominently now. Problems arise in your close personal relationships which demand a need to compromise and make adjustments in your thinking. You might not be accurately perceiving a situation with a loved one which can cause dismay and tension. There will be a requirement on your part to share more of your creative activities and interests with your mate. Other issues can come to light now regarding the financial aspects of your partnerships. For example, you or your partner may not be willing or able to contribute toward your economic situation, and you must balance or adapt your needs and requirements in view of the circumstances.
Conversations and sharing plans and ideas with others are very fruitful now. You understand what others are telling you, and you make yourself clearly understood also. This is a favorable time for getting your message across to others via writing, speaking, or advertising. Stability, maturity, and cooperation are the key issues for this time period. You feel rapport with others on important issues. At work, you find that others share common concerns about important aspects of life. Any agreements made with others now are likely to last a long time and be very stable. The shared interests are very long-lasting, there is mutual respect and regard for each as individuals, and both parties are committed to assisting one another. Business matters, interactions with government agencies, and legal issues run smoothly and harmoniously now.
This is a time when it is difficult to stay within a budget or on a diet, as your tendency is to splurge on beautiful things and to enjoy yourself as much as possible. You want comfort and ease and have luxurious tastes. Quality is especially important to you right now. Also, you want to share whatever good fortune you have. You need company and happy fellowship. It's a good time for a party, as long as you don't overdo it. Self-consciousness, anxiety about public images or reputation, and/or a greater concern for the packaging than the contents are some of the less positive possibilities for you at this time. You are apt to be rather attractive and appealing, particularly at the work place or in your professional role. Be careful not to take advantage of this for it could backfire. On a more pleasant note, an inviting atmosphere at work and appreciation for work well done is indicated. You could make some new contacts too, which would be good, except for the caution cited above.
This is a low point as far as getting ahead or achieving anything in the world is concerned. For now, your energy needs to go into your personal life, home, and family matters. Stress which has been building up both at work and in your family relationships needs to be released now. Try to work out or find ways to express yourself physically, like working in the yard or playing sports; otherwise, you are prone to becoming pugnacious with the people you are closest to.
This is a time for you to speak out about your thoughts or concerns regarding your work or professional matters. Communication with your superiors or with people in authority who are in a position to consider and act on your ideas comes to the fore now.
This is a time when desires and needs are easily met in your relationships with loved ones and children. Family and festive gatherings are enjoyable and emotional bonds can be strengthened with others. A current love relationship can prosper due to the warm exchange of feelings and caring shown for each other. This is a comfortable period within the family circle and there is a marked improvement in the willingness to cooperate in relationships. This can be a good time to improve dietary habits and health regimes or just to pamper yourself. Also, gardening, planting, and preparing nutritious meals are especially rewarding to you.
Confidence and inner harmony prevail. You can move forward with creative projects and express yourself more easily and comfortably now. Your efforts are well received at this time. You are optimistic and possibly extravagant now. You are less cautious than usual, feeling that nothing can possibly go wrong. If you are inclined to overindulge, overspend, or go to excesses in any manner, this tendency is exaggerated at this time. Some illusions and glamorous notions that you have are painfully removed now. You may discover that a movie star, hero, lover, parent, or other person you admire is not as "divine" as you thought.
Personal and creative projects are likely to be profitable during this time. You must assert yourself and use your innate talents to receive the rewards or benefits of these efforts. A relative or associate may suggest a joint business venture or new idea which may prove to be successful for you. On the other hand, you may feel like leaving your comfortable and serene surroundings and enjoying a spontaneous vacation or weekend adventure.
This is also a good time to visit with family, relatives, and siblings where there can be a lively exchange of ideas and communications.
