Nov 22 - Dec 21
- Although your optimism is still taking you on a joyride, you’re more introspective today. You derive extra pleasure now from a quiet meditation, a nature walk, or some other solitary activity. Thankfully, you’re also flexible enough to enjoy being with others when circumstances demand. However, your easygoing style should not be mistaken for a sign of weakness. Woe to him or her who crosses you one too many times. The Dalai Lama teaches, “Do not let the behavior of others destroy your inner peace.”
- You may be struggling with your need for immediate resolution today as your values clash with a personal or business partner. You are bubbling with anticipation as you imagine what might be waiting just around the bend. You’re in no mood to wait any longer now that impulsive Mars opposes Venus in your 9th House of Adventure. Nevertheless, it might feel as if your dreams are not quite ready to materialize. Stop trying to push the river; destiny unfolds on schedule for those who wait. Joseph Campbell wrote, “We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.”
- Spontaneous events in your immediate environment elicit strong emotions, but others might not know that anything unusual has occurred. Normally, you’re not one to hide your reactions, but keeping them under wraps makes sense today. Rather than responding right away, let your thoughts run free until you can see a logical pattern emerge out of the chaos. Once you have the bigger picture in mind, share your conclusions with your peers. Novelist Josiah Gilbert Holland wrote, “Calmness is the cradle of power.”
If you're in a serious relationship with someone, the two of you might discuss dream plans that are connected to cohabitation. For some, this involves buying a home together, while for others it's a discussion about moving in with each other to see how that feels in your relationship. Planning for the future will feel nice but try not to get into any arguments by the end of the week when the plans begin to include financial arrangements. You might feel as if you need to go out of your way to keep checks and balances in place so that one of you isn't spending more money than the other. Don't overthink that element of this situation right now -- it'll only lead to an argument.
