Operating behind the scenes could be much more productive today than standing in the spotlight. Mars, your ruling planet, moves into reclusive Pisces and a project you have been developing may start to meander off-track. It’s difficult for a motivated person like you to stop and make adjustments when you want to be moving forward, but do it anyway; prove that you can go the extra mile. Instead of yearning for greener pastures, you may begin to develop an appreciation for your current situation. Cultivating contentment is much more rewarding than falling victim to restlessness.
Money might not be flowing as easily as it once did after Venus, your ruling planet, begins its retrograde motion in your 2nd House of Earned today. Don’t let this be a source of stress. By stretching your existing resources as far as they will go, you can remain comfortable and secure. Connecting with supportive friends will keep things in proper perspective. You’ve always put importance on material goods, but by talking to others who can manage to have fun regardless of how much money they have, you may learn some valuable lessons.
Staying in the public eye is becoming less and less important. Once attractive Venus goes retrograde in your 1st House of Self today, you may prefer to turn your energy inward for a while. Solitary activities that bring you joy like reading, writing, and communing with nature will make you glow with happiness. It’s nice to know you don’t need anyone else to cultivate joy. While you’re busy having fun, you may even stumble across an exciting career opportunity. Don’t hesitate to apply for a hotly contested job. You just might land it.
If you’re going to be recognized as an expert, you must promote your accomplishments more aggressively. Fortunately, bold Mars enters your 9th House of Expansion today which can give you a great opportunity to teach, lecture, or write. When people realize the depth and breadth of your knowledge, they’ll seek your input. Don’t hesitate to charge a good price for your insights; they are worth their weight in gold. You’re less and less happy with living in the shadows, so turn away from the darkness and move toward the light today. You’ll be much happier.
Delving into a research project could give you a new lease on life. The more information you acquire, the more insight you will gain surrounding a confusing situation. Suddenly, a person’s behavior that once angered you could seem totally understandable. It will be such a relief to have these pieces click into place after a prolonged period of difficulty. This altered outlook may even create some shifts in your social circle. You could become less and less reliant on your friends for emotional support once you realize you haven’t been treated with disrespect.
Keeping up appearances is hard work, but thankfully, sophisticated Venus goes retrograde in your 10th House of Career today. Rather than worrying about how you will look to your peers, you can finally loosen up and be yourself on the job. If you’re unemployed, you can make peace with this situation now. Finding other ways to fill your time may be surprisingly pleasant. Devoting more energy to making art is strongly advised; returning to an abandoned creative project could be lots more fun than expected. Your loved ones will be delighted to see that you’re changing your priorities.
You may be starting to question your belief system as your ruling planet Venus turns retrograde in your 9th House of Philosophy. A matter that once seemed black and white now appears to be comprised of varying shades of gray. With this new vision, be willing to cut a loved one some slack; they really didn’t mean to disappoint you. Adopting a gentler attitude toward your nearest and dearest can even improve your health. Nothing drains the body of energy like resentment and anger. Love is truly a miracle drug, so take liberal doses of it today.
The urge to merge is getting weaker and weaker which comes as a tremendous relief. It's exhausting having your mood dependent on someone else. Reclaiming your personal power may even inspire you to return to a creative project that withered on the vine. Giving this work attention and care will cause it to spring back to life. Then, don’t hesitate to promote your talent. Launching a website that showcases your work in a compelling way is strongly advised. With a little help, you never know how many people you could reach.
Home has assumed an increasing importance to you as of late. Instead of taking your surroundings for granted, you’re looking at them with sharper eyes today. A room that seems lifeless could benefit from your care and attention. Adding a bright coat of paint, rearranging the furniture, and clearing out clutter could turn this dead space into a favorite gathering spot. Your family members or roommates might not be thrilled with this decorating project, but go ahead and listen to your impulses anyway. Once they see the finished product, they could change their tune.
The role of work in your life is undergoing a big change. Instead of looking for a job that pays the most money, you’re intent on performing duties that bring emotional fulfillment. This shift can benefit both your mental and physical health. Enjoying your work will give life an added intensity that is motivating to you. Though someone close to you may have unhelpful comments about the changes they see in you, it's likely they're projecting their insecurities onto you. Instead of wasting energy easing others' fears, put your efforts into your positive transformation.
Pursuing material and financial gains fills you with excitement. You treat money as a form of energy and having it gives you the freedom that you crave. Developing a product or service that helps people escape undesirable realities is strongly advised today. It makes you happy to provide relief to those who are struggling. Work could also be a stress-reliever right now. In the past you may have abandoned yourself to romance when you became anxious, but love serves a different function in your life now. Engaging your mind and body in meaningful tasks is your new way to release nervous energy.
Your charisma may be off the charts today so use it to promote your agenda. Interviewing for a job, raising money for a good cause, or showcasing your artwork are all good uses of your time. People feel like you transport them to a place that is beautiful, comfortable, and soothing, which is why you are so popular. Meanwhile, it could be time to abandon a belief that no longer serves you. You may have been dwelling on the past recently, looking through photos and keepsakes, but you’ve had your fill of memories and you're ready to embrace the power of the present moment.
