You might treat a current obstacles as an interesting, manageable challenge. You're used to receiving both accomplishments and accolades, but don't expect either. It isn't about collecting trophies, though you wouldn't refuse any if they were offered. Forget about old school, new school, and too cool for school. None of that matters now. Suddenly you get to be your electric, artistic self. You get to project your larger-than-life personality in unpredictable shadow puppets or light shows.
Today there are no rules. That doesn't include your own rules, obviously, which will define and govern this whole explosion of you-ness.
Just remember to be loyal to friends and family even if they don't quite follow you. Without their support, you'd never have this kind of freedom and, if you're lucky, this kind of applause. Your devotion to your work and your loved ones knows no boundaries. When it comes to helping others, you can be as selfless as a saint. Even so, your loving attention might not be required today. What an opportunity! Don't waste time feeling upset that no one needs you. Your unique gifts will be needed.
Meanwhile, relearn how to be an individual. Delight in your own company; get lost in your very own brand of brilliance. If you make yourself laugh with enjoyable thoughts and fantasies, you're finding yourself again. You're a quick thinker, but your thoughts seem alien. Will anyone get your otherworldly logic? Not today. If you want to get allies in your corner, you'll have to bring your ideas down to earth. Of course, things will shift and it won't matter, if you all get along.
But for now, it does matter. If you're working on a group project, your coworkers want to know you're all on the same page. Similarly, your friends want to know you're still the same person they know and love.
Try not to be too extreme in your approach. What's wrong with showing respect, anyway? Who says that good manners only conceal the wolves among the sheep? If chivalry is just a nervous habit, you could do much worse. And you're so over that whole school-yard bully dynamic, anyway. Get beyond appearances today and show them that real wolves and real sheep have transcended their storybook roles. People have good and bad sides, and right now being decisive, loyal and, yes, polite will resolve a lot more problems than those behaviors create.
In the end, that resolution is what brings real security. It doesn't matter whether you're under pressure, stretched tight or at loose ends. You could be all revved up or as subdued as a whisper. Today will find you vague and moody. It'll be harder than usual to fake sincerity if you're not feeling it. Flippant remarks might cut deeper than you intended. Try harder to stay in focus so that you can read the situation better. It's OK to let people know your current limitations, but you have to be kind about it.
You'd expect the same courtesy. At the moment, your heart and mind are quietly untroubled. Today you're as peaceful as a dove and helpful as a child, which means you're content to let others run the show. You have no problem taking direction from someone else, as long as their heart is in the right place. You're demonstrating the power of acquiescence now. This doesn't mean that you've given up control to someone else, though.
It's just that passive control can be so much easier. Not to mention more effective! Something's off. Maybe your mood and energy aren't right. You feel entitled to many things, but you don't quite know what they are. You could be feeling needy or grabby. On the other hand, you might have enough self-control to restrain yourself until you figure out what you're lacking. What matters more is how you fulfill those or soothe those needs. One thing is certain: Good or bad, this will be a brief, surprising period.
You could learn a lot about yourself and the way you operate. Be forewarned: The immaculate condition of your life is about to change. The waters are muddied by messy emotions today. As much as you might prefer life to be neat, clean and efficient at all times, you have to accept the fact that you occasionally need other people.
Whatever's going on, consider this a warm welcome back into human society. This is what being alive is all about, so enjoy it. Be glad there's affection in your life. That's far more than some can say. You've been trying your hardest. You've been wearing the biggest smile you've got and speaking in your sweetest voice. And yet, you just can't seem to win them over. All this toxic niceness is backfiring. It's time to do something decisive to save the situation, or at least yourself.
Today, figure out a way to shake them awake by other means.
And don't neglect the benefits of stating your case or your opinion plainly. You tend to avoid being direct with people, but sometimes it's the only way to get through to them. You've been keeping to yourself, haven't you? When the phone rings, you let your voicemail answer. When a friend sends an e-mail, you file it away for later response. And that's okay. Seclusion suits you well right now. Your focus and energy have turned inward. You're taking sublime inventory of your true, inner self. It's best to keep your own counsel today. That way, you can tighten your focus and establish a solid plan for the moment you'll spring into action.
And when that happens, well -- watch out, world! You seem careless and quirky, fashionably sloppy yet daring to be different. It's all an act, obviously a very good one, but an act just the same. Deep down, you're seething with conventional anxieties. Welcome to the human race. Of course, you don't have to dwell on this stuff all the time. Just be yourself today as kind of a check-in. Let real friends offer real help. They actually like you even if you're all living with one foot in the land of illusion.
And that's one less reason to complain. Respect what others call holy or authentic, even if your inner voice tells you they're trying to scam you or just deluding themselves. But along with giving them your respect, it wouldn't hurt to look beyond or behind what they say. Maybe you'll get a better idea about what they're thinking and what unseen forces are at work here. Keep these investigations within the realm of peaceful curiosity, because you're really not trying to make trouble.
You can learn a lot about your world today, and maybe then you'll be better qualified to judge, or even see that judgment is meaningless. Today is a good time to connect with your own watery energy. Let it flow subtly and beautifully by meditating on the movement and quality of water itself -- that free-flowing thing that meanders wherever it can. That's how your thoughts should work. Don't curtail your imagination or impose any expectations of practicality on yourself, especially if you're developing ideas for a project.
Let your mind flow. Take notes on where it leads you. Most of all, don't be lured by loud, shiny novelties. You don't need them. The best stuff comes unannounced. Be ready to respond to anything. Maybe they're saying it's none of your business, but how can any of you be sure about that? Your words will be liquid today, and your actions will be fluid. Your position will be bendable, too. Either you do a lot of yoga, or you've got relaxation down to a science.
Some people may call you spineless for all this, but that's only because they're so rigid. All you're doing is changing with the changes, and that's OK for now. Though it may work against your mood or your very nature, do your best to be patient and pleasant today. You aren't alone in this world, and you need people in your corner, whether you're combining efforts at work or with friends.
Keep your motives pure. That way, other people will know they can trust you. Does this really cost you so much? Even if today's reality doesn't line up with your favored fantasies, at least you'll know you're not forcing it. They don't have to tell you what good taste is.
You're already way too cool and suave for that kind of advice. You can read situations and minds because people's true intentions are evident to you. Of course, you don't want to creep them out by flaunting your psychic abilities. Your best bet is to observe and then act accordingly. If you can take the social pulse today, you'll be positioned to improve the spiritual health of friends and strangers alike. Get them to smile and trust each other, and that'll be your first step right there. It's OK if your dreams are big.
A healthy fantasy life is important, and who can control what their unconscious mind washes up? But there could be trouble if your hopes are as unrealistic as your dreams. You're flirting with movie stars whose lunch would cost you a week's pay. You're way too loose-lipped with other people's secrets. Common sense sinks beneath a flood of wannabe one-upmanship. This can't be healthy. Watch your back today. You might be having fun, but somebody else could take this way too personally.
Images and intuition come quickly now, overflowing your mind. You know your perceptions are accurate, because they're completely from the heart. You're meeting the world on its own terms, which is to say, you've let go of what's logical in favor of what simply is. Be sure to write these dreams and inspirations on the wall, so everyone can have a few days to ponder your vision. That way, you can all act together. Not now, though. This period is all about letting your thoughts go where they will.
You can turn them into something concrete later. You're a bit of a dreamer, especially under today's energy. You just want life to be incredible. Is that so much to ask? Often it is. At the moment, you need to take stock of yourself. Consider whether you're working to fix what's broken or just fixating on how you wish things would turn out.
