Today’s square between people-pleasing Venus and delusional Neptune could tempt you to flatter your way to the top. Resist the urge to pelt an influential person with insincere compliments. Instead, put your best foot forward and let the chips fall where they may. It’s much easier to be direct about what you want, even at the risk of being rejected. Additionally, it’s important to give someone important in your life the respect they deserve. If you promise to call or video chat with them, keep your word.
A friend may ask for money that you’re unable to give today. Be honest about your financial situation. Everyone is feeling a pinch these days; you simply can’t give what you don’t have. The best thing you can do for a loved one who is experiencing financial difficulty is to express faith in their ability to get back on their feet. Don’t commiserate about their difficulties; instead, emphasize their ability to overcome hardship. Your pep talk may cause their confidence to soar. This is where your reputation for being practical and honest really shines.
Image-conscious Venus is touring your 1st House of Self, forming a tense angle to deluded Neptune in your 10th House of Public Life today. If you're applying for work right now, make sure to maintain a humble attitude. It’s perfectly fine to discuss your accomplishments during an online or phone interview, but refrain from going overboard. Your true accomplishments may get drowned out by you trying to prove yourself to the people on the other end. Practice talking about your strengths with someone who has experience hiring people; their advice will be invaluable.
Be discriminating about your interactions today. If someone you're close to hasn’t been treating you with the respect you deserve, put some distance between you and make more time for the activities you love. No matter what it is you end up doing, it will be a welcome distraction from obsessing over a troubled relationship. When this person realizes you’re not depending on them for fulfillment any longer, it's possible your bond will improve. Taking a temporary step back could be what you've needed to take a positive step forward.
It's possible a partnership you're involved in hits a snag today. Your attitudes toward money may be radically different from the other person's. Instead of trying to change each other, create a system of saving and spending that works for both of you. If one of you makes a lot more money than the other, divide the costs according to percentages of income, rather than straight down the middle. Such an arrangement could help both of you feel good about what you’re individually contributing. There are always solutions to every problem, it's just a matter of figuring them out.
Putting too much emphasis on professional matters has the potential to make you miserable. You can be happy regardless of what your job status is. Instead of dwelling on what's missing, try to develop an attitude of gratitude. Make a game of finding something to appreciate at every opportunity. It could be as simple as admiring the way the light streams through your window or acknowledging one of your best attributes. What you focus on expands. Therefore, concentrate on what's right and more of it will come to you in time.
Despite how charming you are, it may not be enough to impress an accomplished expert today. If you’re going to get into this person’s good graces, you must work hard. Complete the duties you’ve vowed to perform, even if it means scaling back a bit on your leisure time. Your dedication will be greatly appreciated. Even though you don't realize it, your work habits could be having an impact on your family. When your loved ones see you’re going the extra mile, they may follow your example. What you do has a ripple effect.
You'd be wise not to take your creative talent for granted any longer. You’ve been blessed with an impressive ability to create things of great value and beauty. The more time you spend on these activities, the more accomplished you will become. The more you neglect your abilities, the more they suffer. Actually, you’re never more magnetic than when you’re exercising your imagination. You'll have even greater powers of attraction if you focus on this part of yourself now. Don't let your incredible gift go to waste.
A power struggle could erupt between you and a loved one today. It isn’t fair to impose your beliefs on this person. By showing respect for their needs, you’ll build a relationship that reflects both your values. Additionally, if a relative has been critical of your best friend or romantic partner, come to the victim’s defense. Although your loyalty to your clan is admirable, it shouldn’t undermine your personal preferences. Your favorite person will be eternally grateful that you stuck up for them. Best of all, you will have learned how to establish healthier boundaries.
Even the best-laid plans could be delayed today. Bring something to distract yourself if you do need to go out and get something done. The more comfortable you are, the less annoying delays will be. On a better note, your powerful charisma could attract an opportunity to study with a respected expert. Working with this person will be difficult but rewarding. Be willing to put your assumptions aside for the sake of honing your skills. By simply adjusting your approach to a task or technique, you can attain mastery.
Impracticality about finances could be cause for regret. Dreamy Neptune is touring your 2nd House of Earned Income, making a tense square to extravagant Venus today. Therefore, it’s especially important to keep your hard-earned money in the bank. If being cooped up has given you the itch to shop online, hold off for now. Or, it might be that a loved one is pressuring you to spend money on them. Set them straight about your economic situation. Their love for you shouldn’t depend on what you will buy for them. Find a way to spend quality time together instead.
Dwelling on the past can prevent you from making progress today. Instead of reminiscing, make exciting plans that you can easily do from the comfort of your own home. Endlessly daydreaming wastes valuable time, so treat every minute like it counts. You may decide to pattern your behavior after a friend whose regimen and ideas you admire. By adopting their habits, you’ll start manifesting your heartfelt desires. In fact, you may be so delighted by the results that you start waking up earlier every day to maximize your productivity.
