Kindness is golden, but taking advantage of the kindness of others will only hurt both people in the end. This is not a great time to meet new people, as the sensitive Moon opposes expansive Jupiter and giving will be more beneficial than receiving. The Moon's later trine to surprising Uranus at 11:07 pm EST may bring changes that we aren't expecting, but are happy to encounter. Anytime we are blessed with the generosity of others today, genuine shows of appreciation will go far.
Changes in your work environment could make things a little easier on you, but even changes that make things better can be annoying at first. You might find yourself needing to update your knowledge today in order to implement some new systems, or helping someone get up to speed on the way you do things in your workplace -- either way, it won’t necessarily be easy right off the bat. However, once you get acclimated to this new atmosphere, you’ll likely be welcoming it with open arms.
Strange as it may seem, simply having fun may be your best path to success today. Avoid waxing philosophical about any woes or worries in your life, because a conscious effort to let loose can help you set down your mental burdens and allow you some peace. Reach out to friends and loved ones for an enjoyable experience today -- the future will still be there after you watch that movie or spend time catching up with those you care about.
Important people in your life like your parents or other authority figures may be causing headaches for you -- you might even find yourself refusing an overabundance of their generosity. Sometimes it’s uncomfortable to accept more charity than you need or want, but when someone is pushing it toward you, it can be difficult to refuse. Maintain your boundaries without being judgmental, and remember that they’re probably only trying to show you that they love you. Still, you don't have to accept anything you’re uncomfortable with!
New elements in your social life could begin to improve your day-to-day life. It's possible someone is getting closer to you in your friend group, yet there may be a push-pull dynamic with this person and you’re not sure if you’re ready to open up more with them. It’s okay to not give everything all at once, because oversharing can cause regret later. Editing your boundaries is okay, but dropping everything that makes you comfortable in order to please someone else will create resentment.
Matters of sharing and finances are at the forefront for you now, and you could end up hurt by someone you trust. This may be someone who is leaving your life or someone who is leaving you hanging when you need them. Make sure you’re putting your trust in the right people, or else new problems can pop up that affect your money and your sense of security. What you bring in through your own efforts may be more reliable than what others are bringing to the communal table.
Someone who acts as a mirror for you could try to trigger you emotionally today. Realize that the less you focus on the comments of others, the more peaceful your day will be. People may feel more inclined to criticize you or control you, and you may need to stand up for yourself in situations where you are the underdog. Step into today with genuine intentions and be sure not to start any fights and you’ll be fine.
It may be difficult for you to determine how you’re feeling in the moment -- your agenda for the day could drive you to frustration before you realize what’s happening. You also are less likely to want to be put in the spotlight, so you may want to avoid situations that require you to be in front of several people. If it’s unavoidable, keep the focus on you to a minimum by thanking others and showing your appreciation. Accept the attention with humility and grace.
A friendship or other relationship may have been changing lately, and you could feel confused now about the person in front of you. They’re not the same as they used to be, but this is understandable. We all grow new sides to our personalities over time, and none of us live in a bubble. You’re not the same person that you were a year ago, so why expect them to stay the same? If you believe that you’re growing apart, you can do so without judging them.
You could feel torn today between putting a lot of effort toward your goals and resting to recover from all that you’ve already done. Instead of choosing to focus on either advancement or self-care, your wisest course of action now is to find a balance between the two. Work straight through the desire to give up, but rest when you’re tempted to do that extra work that's not necessary. Through equilibrium, you can find both professional and personal success.
Fun is on your agenda today, but two different opportunities or invitations for fun could pull you in opposite directions. It’s not good to try to do a million things at once now -- overscheduling yourself is a mistake, even if you really want to do everything offered to you. Understand your energy levels and know what’s required of you tomorrow, because while you want to dive right in today, you'll still need enough energy for what's to come. Flexibility is your friend now.
You could be living more in your head than in the present moment now, and this is preventing you from enjoying what’s going on around you. It's possible you'll receive a gift from a family member or a friend today, but worrying could prevent you from enjoying it. Life will be easier if you’re able to break free from your mental patterns, because whether you’re dwelling on the past or the future, it’s taking you away from where you’re supposed to be. Love the people you’re with.
Beware of running over people with your opinions, because you could come off as uncharacteristically abrasive or demanding today. Others will probably want to make you happy, but if you push them too far, you may end up receiving some backlash from those you’re asking for help. If you’re able to keep your ego in check, you’re more likely to get what you need. There’s even the potential to improve your relationships if you are able to listen, so close your mouth and open your ears!
