Get ready for the view to improve and your energy to increase—the road you're on right now is going to provide you with some easy, breezy movement for the next few weeks. This will create perfect conditions for launching your latest adventure or work project. Any conflicts or trials you encounter will be personality driven, so if you just learn when (and how) to distance yourself from aggravating people, you'll do just fine. Remember, you can always rely on yourself.
Despite what some people say, being aggressive is not the same thing as being rude, so don't be afraid to be pushy today! Being constantly forceful is not going to win you too many allies, but if you bring out your bolder nature here and there—just when it can do the most good—you'll be respected. There's also a small danger of becoming a doormat in a professional situation right now. Your reliability is starting to be seen by some as a given. Make it clear that you follow your own agenda.
A lot of the people around you are overly concerned with achieving results on their pet projects right now—so much so that they may be shirking their responsibilities in other areas that have to do with you. So if you feel they're overlooking you, today is the day to speak up and let them know you need some of their time. Don't feel like what you have to say isn't important. It's important to you, and that's all that matters.
Antiques, grand old oak trees, and senior citizens all seem a little bit more important today. That's because you're learning to understand the achievement of endurance—and the value of things that stand the test of time. Create something of your own that will have meaning beyond your time on Earth. Plant a tree, donate to a charity or teach a child a character-building lesson. The things you do today can help shape the future, whether you realize it or not.
The two sides of your life—the public and the private—need to be kept separate today. Make sure the line is black, not grey. And be very wary of people who want you to mix the two—their motivations might not be the most honorable. If you respectfully refuse an invitation, you can keep yourself from being in an awkward (and potentially negative) situation. You must protect your true self from new people right now. Don't rush to be familiar.
Release your expectations for this day—you'll go much further if you keep your mind open to any and all possibilities. The person you want to forge a deeper connection with might be in a bad mood, feeling under the weather or distracted by other issues. You can't control their state of mind, so if things don't gel, you'll have to wait for a better day. Don't beat yourself up about it. The disappointments you encounter today are not something you can change.
Today the concept of preservation is on your mind. You aren't interested in the latest fads or trends; instead, you're interested in the past. To make the most of this thoughtful mood, you should feed your senses. Listen to classical music, leaf through a history book, shop for some classic pieces of clothing or just look through some old family photos. Anything that reminds you of your link to the past gives you a better sense of where you are in the present.
You have a lot of information to share right now, so the task for this day is to find someone to share it with! You could see this as a romantic call to action, a business philosophy or merely a suggestion that you find someone new on the scene whom you can mentor. Think back to someone who inspired you in the past, someone who helped you understand what you were capable of. Follow their guidance and apply their techniques to the person you're dealing with now.
You've been running on low power for a few days, conserving your energy and enjoying the slower pace. But today, you should turn off your engine completely: If possible, you need to take things even slower. There are small ideas swimming around you, and unless you're standing perfectly still, you may not be able to pick up on them. Let the world continue to swirl around you while you sit and watch. You'll learn some fun new things about an old friend and enjoy the peace.
The ebb and flow of your energy is extremely unpredictable right now, so don't commit yourself to anything too strenuous or physically ambitious. This is not the best day to start a new gym, join a sports team or go for a big hike. If you do, you might find yourself without energy right when you need it most. Instead, try for more relaxed activities where you can take a break when you need to. Your mind will be active and can help you stay focused.
Making a solid effort takes you a long way today, so even if your heart isn't 100 percent into something, you should give it the old college try. The worst thing that can happen is that you get brownie points for trying—and a lot of appreciation from someone you care about. The best possible outcome is that you get into this endeavor and learn something new. Don't shy away from things that make you uncomfortable.
They say that haste makes waste, but today you should feel free to move as quickly as you need to. If you have a plan, carry it out! Don't slow down for anyone or anything right now. If other people can't keep up with you, that's not your problem. You can't always be in sync with the folks around you, and they wouldn't want to be responsible for holding you back anyway. So don't worry about burning bridges. Just go full steam ahead!
