Jul 23 - Aug 22
- Your heart is so set on an upcoming activity you might find it difficult to focus on your work now that the Sun is shining in your 9th House of Future Vision. Unfortunately, distractions may need to be set aside while you attend to your current obligations. The good news is your future event will still be on your calendar and you can return to fine-tuning your plans in a few days. In the meantime, concentrate on the here and now for the best results. Psychologist Abraham Maslow wrote, “The ability to be in the present moment is a major component of mental wellness.”
- Although you’re inspired by your dreams, you carry a strong sense of purpose that sustains your enthusiasm when progress is minimal. You might be doing everything according to your plan, but the results are not exactly encouraging now. There’s no need to justify your lack of measurable gains, even to yourself. You’re not in control of external circumstances that are currently slowing you down. But don’t lose faith; appointments with destiny are always on time.
- Although your life may be wonderful, you still might wish to be anywhere but here today. It’s just that your dreams are so amazing that you can’t help but try to manifest them right away. Unfortunately, mischievous Mercury’s retrograde lands in your 9th House of Distant Horizons, creating confusion and delays in the area of travel. You have little patience, yet it is patience that you need in copious amounts. Zig Ziglar wrote, “Be careful not to compromise what you want most for what you want now.”
Your deepest spiritual thoughts about life and love are about to come up for review. As a result, you might begin to shift your ideas about what you really want in a romantic relationship. If you and your current partner are not like-minded -- either spiritually, morally, or intellectually -- then all of a sudden you might find yourself questioning the future of your relationship. You might even begin to feel less attracted to this person as the areas of your incompatibility begin to reveal themselves more and more. Don't make any rash decisions just yet. Instead, have a discussion about this with your sweetheart and see where it takes you.
