About two weeks ago, it may have occurred to you that you should be making more of an effort to advance your career, Aries. If so, it will be easier for you to accept today's constraints, as there is some probability that you will need to perform at your highest level. Be careful not to lose yourself in the attempt!
Your light, breezy spirit may have some trouble harmonizing with today's prevailing mood. Usually when you're cornered, you're able to find a way to squirm to safety. Today you may run out of clever maneuvers. Even though you face the day's challenges alone and unaided, you survive them the same way. Good for you!
What a day, Gemini! Whether at work or at home, you may find yourself choosing between two options, both of which stem from anxiety! You may decide to vanquish your doubts by burying yourself in your work. If so, you can expect to expend a great deal of energy. Or you may react with indifference, and the apathy will cost you just as much. The situation will improve in a few days.
It's often said that your energy feeds on strong emotions. Situations that require some daring are an excellent source of such excitement. This is the key to understanding the day ahead, Cancer. True, you can expect some hair-raising encounters, but how better to show off your skills as either an employee or passionate partner?
Kindheartedness is wonderful, but being taken advantage of can be a danger. You really need to trust your instincts to keep this from happening. If what you hear doesn't match what you feel, trust your feeling. In the event that you get used, move past it. It would be a shame if resentment permanently dampened your giving nature.
You could feel at odds about opening your heart up to friends today, and balancing that against the deeper need for privacy or secrecy on some matter. Unless you fully trust the person you want to share these elements of your inner life with, it's best to keep those secrets in to yourself.
This is a time to take in information which can be of real practical assistance to you in reaching a significant long-range goal. Some news may reach you which will create some minor distress and compel you to re-examine or reassess a position you have taken regarding your career or work in the world. Don't try to force issues or come to any definite conclusions now and don't sign any contracts.
Your ambition to better yourself is coming to the forefront. You want to not only improve your lifestyle, but would like to achieve more independence as well. Your desire for success and recognition is growing, and will drive you to make changes that ensure you will enjoy both in the near future.
An unresolved romantic problem could resurface and you'll have to deal with it. The trick is to stay calm and keep up a positive attitude towards your partner, as well as to those you encounter in your social life generally. Some irritation or displeasure caused by others could be a reflection of your own inner uneasiness just now.
At this rather rare time, it is possible to stand back and take a look at your aesthetic accomplishments and generally take self-congratulatory stock of your surroundings. Although you may take your talents for granted, it can be a joy to take inventory now and then so you know just what you are showing off.
The day will come when an authority applauds you for your work or research. Only then will you understand that you've let yourself be fooled by society. Much as you believe otherwise, society isn't trying to stifle you or stop you from being you, Pisces. It's true that pioneers often aren't recognized until they can show some results.
