When things start going your way, how to do you react? An open heart embraces good fortune with optimism and gratitude. But someone with a closed or wounded heart is suspicious when good things happen. It might be that you are struggling to accept love with grace, or perhaps someone you care about never seems to be happy no matter what’s going on in their life. It’s something to work on together.
The stars are aligned in a very fortuitous way! You’re on the brink of something very good—something you’ve wanted for a long time. The universe has rolled out the red carpet. Now all you have to do is take the first step. Whatever you’ve been hoping and dreaming about will soon be yours, as long as you make the move to take it. You’ll find that any bad luck has turned around.
Starting a new relationship—or deepening a current partnership—is both exciting and a little scary. If you are facing such a decision now, know that your enthusiasm will serve you much better than fear. The fiery Sun and passionate Venus are at a favorable angle for new romantic ventures. If you continue to feel uncertain, talk things over with a trusted confidante. The conversation may help crystalize your vision for the future.
Be aware of battles that you can’t—or perhaps shouldn’t—win. Arguing with a loved one night will lead to a pyrrhic victory at best. If it’s not something that you are truly passionate about it, let the issue drop. Continuing to insist that you are right could lead to unforeseen consequences in your relationship. A technical “win” now may turn into a bitter loss with time as the other person grows to resent you.
They say opposites attract, and that’s because two opposing forces can balance each other out. If your partner or a potential love interest seems like a total mismatch on paper, other people might not understand your relationship. Don’t worry about their uninformed opinion. This kind of harmony is a rare gift, and you should feel free to enjoy the feeling of being in a grounded, balanced union.
Today, try not to focus on how far you must go to reach your goals. Instead, look back and appreciate how far you’ve come. Every setback and heartbreak helped shape you into the person you are today. If you are currently struggling, this exercise can give you some much-needed perspective. It will help to talk to a friend or family member who was there with you when you overcame a significant obstacle.
You may find yourself with an increased desire to start nesting today. Focus on creating a comfortable home for yourself and the people you love. This might involve lots of cooking, deep cleaning, or rearranging furniture and décor to be more harmonious. The influence of sensual Venus manifests in a love of creature comforts, too. Soft fabrics and comforting foods will serve as your love language today.
Things may be feeling stable in your life for the first time in a while, or else they will soon. This is a time to stop, take a breather, and look around at all you have built. However, don’t get too satisfied with the status quo. This is only temporary. The chaotic energy of a retrograde Mercury is never too far away. Enjoy the moment, but be prepared to continue your journey soon.
Someone is lying to you, dear heart, or at least withholding the truth. Deception can be an insidious poison in a relationship. If you don’t get this resolved quickly, the breach of trust may never be healed. It’s up to the other person to come clean, however. All you can do is express your willingness to hear anything they want to say. The influence of secretive Pluto is strong right now, making it more difficult to be open and honest.
Do you ever get trapped by your own negative thoughts? Do you find yourself ruminating on a conversation where you said the wrong thing or felt embarrassed? All of us do that from time to time, but these thoughts can become a prison of the mind the longer you dwell on them. A good way to break the negative cycle is to talk to someone who cares about you. Don’t fish for compliments, but tell them how you’re feeling. Chances are good they can give you a great pep talk.
Strong, masculine energy is manifesting in your life. Bolstered by Jupiter, the emperor of the planets, this energy can help you achieve great things in the realm of business or finance. What it won’t help with is matters of the heart. Now is not a great time to start a new relationship or have a deep, meaningful conversation with a lover.
Someone who appears cold or distant may simply not have access to their feelings right now. They may also be keeping things tightly controlled and hidden for reasons that you don’t understand. Don’t assume to know everything about a person’s inner life. That can lead to a major miscommunication with lasting consequences. You can’t know anyone’s story just by looking at them, but you can keep an open and curious heart.
