Nevertheless, you still may be quick to entertain an unrealistic idea if you think it will lead to pleasure. Exploring your fantasies is fine as long as you don’t assume you must act on them now. Although you might temporarily feel as if you’ve lost your creative edge, there’s no need to panic. Count your blessings and enjoy the calmer pace of life while it lasts.

You may be attracted to the notion of self-indulgence today, tempting you to do as little as possible. Unfortunately, this kind of thinking creates a vicious cycle that becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy; your lack of effort might be more upsetting to others than you know. Nevertheless, the reflective Moon’s current visit to your sign offers you a chance to overcome your own resistance and surprise someone by exceeding his or her expectations now. Dr. Seuss warned, “Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.”

You’re known to think fast on your feet, but today’s emphasis on pragmatism inhibits your typically witty expression. Unfortunately, the perfect words just won’t roll off your tongue as rapidly as you wish, which makes it challenging to charm someone with your sweet talk. However, it’s prime time to handle an uncomfortable issue, instead of trying to dance around it. Finding resolution might not sound like fun, but it could be more emotionally satisfying than you expect.

Expressing your feelings eloquently today isn’t enough; you also need to steer clear of an emotional scene, especially if it doesn’t concern you directly. Participating in someone’s melodrama diverts your precious time and energy without offering you something positive in return. You can still demonstrate your support by being the strong and silent type. Encourage a friend or lover to lean on your shoulder now, but don’t get lost in the overly complicated business of other people’s relationships. A bit of healthy detachment does your heart good.

Unrelenting concerns affecting your career are more critical today than long-term decisions that you’ve been grappling with recently. Although you might have allowed your thoughts about the far-off future to grow out of hand, it’s time to reevaluate your goals. If your existing plans are unrealistic, tune out the extraneous noise, consider what’s most critical to the present moment and set new priorities that can carry you forward.

Oddly enough, your plans may not materialize according to your expectations. But you can hold your ground today, rather than being required to retreat. Although you won’t likely be pleased if you can’t freely do what you intended now, you still might feel a sense of relief once you clarify your limits. Don’t believe for a nanosecond that your trials are a sign of defeat; the current circumstances are actually an opportunity to fine-tune a strategy that will successfully launch you into the future.

You’re not often the one who puts your foot down and says no. But you recently learned how to establish a boundary and defend your position when necessary. Your tough-love policy may feel good if it helps you formalize your limits. If you’re called on again for your practical perspective today, don’t hold back because you’re afraid of being perceived as negative. Your passions are intense now and could surprise others, but your kindness is as long as your intentions are good.

An existing relationship dance is strengthened today if you can let go of unnecessary fear and allow your partner to take the lead. Unfortunately, you may be existentially worried that you’ll lose control once you surrender to someone else’s demands. However, the opposite is true; responding intelligently to sound logic demonstrates your willingness to compromise. There’s no right and wrong in the realm of emotions, so keep an open mind when considering points of view other than your own.

You might grow discouraged if pressure from a loved one prevents you from doing what you think is most important. It’s highly demoralizing if you are anticipating success today, only to discover that there are additional hoops to jump through before the prize is yours. Nevertheless, it isn’t wise to let a setback disturb your equilibrium now. Maintain a positive stance so you can meet any problems head-on. Don’t give up; you’re closer to your goals than you think.

You may need to confront a pushy partner today, possibly complicating your interactions with people who believe that you’re the source of the problem. You can’t just outtalk your opponents with logic; unfortunately, conscious verbal sparring only widens the gap between you and your adversary. Instead of employing words to demonstrate your superiority, let your sensible behavior speak for you. Setting an example is the best way to make your case.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Instead of just assuming you know all the answers to all the questions today, soften your approach by acknowledging everyone else’s areas of expertise. Your receptivity to new information is more crucial to your success now than proving that you’re the smartest person in the room. Still, you must feel emotionally secure in what you do know, in order to comfortably admit what you don’t. Here’s your chance to impress a loved one with your wisdom instead of just showing off your intelligence.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
You’re capable of receiving constructive criticism today without low self-esteem kicking in. Normally, you might grow anxious if you believe someone is questioning the validity of your feelings. But you don’t have to hide behind your convictions in order to avoid hearing the truth. Reconsidering your opinions when you encounter conflicting data is a sign of intelligence. Adjusting your position makes perfect sense now, especially when it works in everyone’s favor.
