A word of praise from the right person validates you more than empty flattery from someone who's just trying to manipulate you. Maybe you finally sit down and read this past week's journal entries. Maybe your significant other lets you know how much you please him or her. The bottom line is that you're feeling positive about yourself. And when that happens, other people begin to notice. They're asking for your opinion. You're being invited to places that you only dreamed of going. If new obstacles loom, you're happy to tackle them. Nothing is too much for you now.
Is it gravity or magnetism? You're nor sure which principle is in play, but all you know is that everything comes to you with complete predictability. Just hold out your hand, and there it is. As an Earth Sign, this is your day to get down and dirty. If you can do it while keeping your hands clean, so much the better. Any lingering inhibitions vanish as you do what pleases you. Pursue your goals with confidence. Satisfy your appetites without worrying about budget limitations. You're everybody's guest these days. Impress those who know you with a side they've never seen.
Limitations annoy you. Confrontation doesn't bother you. You're not looking for trouble, but you'll face it without fear. You might surprise yourself by drawing on hidden strength, but you must have known that it was there because it feels so natural. Ideally, patience is the way to face adversity. Let your enemies and tormentors discredit themselves as they try to find your secret. The punch line of this joke is that you don't really have a secret -- just the air of secrecy. Part of your charm is that you can drive others crazy wondering what you're really up to.
These are social times. The basic principles of mingling and visiting suggest that things aren't in their usual places, but no one seems to mind. Mild disorder is stimulating. Even so, your home is neat as a pin when you're expecting guests. Let them wander from room to room, admiring your world and its comforts. It's what you'd think about at someone else's house. Take new friends to your special places. Show them the things that inspire you. Describe what you're working on these days. If you want collaborators, this is how you'll find them.
What you're doing may be by-the-book, yet still be in questionable taste. Does it really matter what others think? In some cases, a bad reputation is worse than a criminal record. Think about protecting your good name if it's on the line. Predict all the consequences you can imagine, and go with the one that makes the least ripples. You've seen enough bad judgment calls to avoid following in those footsteps. Stabilize your situation by exercising moderation in all things. You can pull out all the stops again once the Stars are more favorably aligned.
Yes, there is order in the Universe, and you of all the Signs should know about it. You can spend the day cleaning house or doing yard work and still come away with a feeling of accomplishment on a deep metaphysical level. It's about more than just brightening your environment, putting things where they belong or taming your little corner of nature. You reach a unique understanding about the way in which you operate. Honing your technique is closely tied to building your character. As everyone around you can attest, you're beautiful when you're this self-assured.
Do you like being the center of attention? If you have a choice in the matter this time, the answer might be no. There's no doubt about your personal magnetism, but the spotlight it throws on you can be a little too much. You're worried that you won't measure up on closer inspection. Everyone knows that they should deal with their personal care in private, but for you this extends to health maintenance activities. Public displays of yoga and running are out for today. Stay composed and apparently in control. Fend off probing questions with polite answers, and save everybody from embarrassment.
Things are changing again! Be open to shifts in relationships, whether it's a loved one discovering a new side to themselves, or a friend suddenly asking more favors than ever before. This is the wrong moment to be stubborn, especially if kindness is what's called for. How useful is it to attach yourself to an impermanent situation? That's one sure way to turn yourself from an asset into a liability. Accidents will happen, but remember the retailer's motto: 'You break it, you bought it.'
You were having so much fun, but now you get the feeling that the party's almost over. Disembark from your pleasure cruise at the next port of call. Don't stay aboard as it might turn into a bad trip. The calm waters could get a little rocky when small stones make their ripples in a still pond. Whoever might be throwing them just managed to break into your quiet reflection. Either someone is sending you a specific message, or you're just experiencing the whim of a complete stranger. Remember your obligations. Pay your debts before they get too expensive.
Be honest with everyone. Sometimes the truth can be painful, but not now. The nature of your feelings is just too good to hide from your loved ones. You can be sure that their sentiments match yours. Along with all this, you're thinking positively about the ideals that drive you and the systems that work for you. Be faithful to these things, and everything that surrounds them will line up perfectly. Now that you have it all in order, a tasteful celebration is okay. Be the first to offer a toast in honor of your wonderful life.
On certain days your energy sparkles like fine champagne, but you may be feeling a little more flat that fizzy these days. Don't worry -- your exuberant, free-spirited self is still there; you just have to remember how to access it. Instead, you're reflecting on the things that money can't buy, no matter how much you have. The good news is that you'll be the first to embrace early signs of change.
You don't have much ego invested in the idea of leaders and followers. If you happen to turn around and see others marching along behind you, you'll gladly give them a piece of the action. As for you, you'll go wherever your intuition sends you. And what a fine place that is. The thoughts that occur to you are worth thinking. A quick mind sends its message in precise words. But there's poetry in what you say, too. People are amazed by how creative you can be. It all happens in ways that seem too good to be true.
