Apr 20 - May 20
- Your philosophical outlook on the world is undergoing a dramatic transformation as you assimilate new information that contradicts what you thought to be true. However, you are exhausted from all the heavy mental lifting you’re doing as you sort through the stories you’ve been told. You don’t like changing your mind, especially when it comes to your plans for the future, but it’s impossible to deny the facts as you see them now. Living with less certainty requires energy so conserve yours for when you might need it.
- Someone may be too emotionally intense for your liking today, but you're willing to manage your discomfort to maintain harmony in a relationship. Unfortunately, burying your desires doesn’t bode well for the idea of long-term success. Nevertheless, the short-term prognosis is looking good, and there’s still plenty of time to change your attitude. Luckily, Mercury rides to the rescue, enabling you to make the most sensible choice. Yogi Berra quipped, “When you come to a fork in the road, take it.”
- It might sound funny but you are growing weary of people telling you how wonderful you are and what amazing work you are doing now. Although some aspects of your life may be quite satisfying, there are other parts that are falling short of your expectations. You don’t want praise or comfort today; you just want the unvarnished truth. You do not need to be motivated by anyone else because your own ambitions are already firmly set. Seek out honest allies who you can trust to give you reliable information from an objective perspective.
This might be a week when you use your clever communication skills in a cunning way to get what you want out of a relationship. You might not necessarily do this on purpose, but it's possible that this will be the nature of conversations you have. Another theme in matters of the heart is the fact that you're likely to want more freedom these days. Freedom to express your individuality and overall, breathing room in your relationship to ensure you don't feel suffocated. Somehow, someway, you'll manage to convince your partner that by letting go, he or she is doing what's best for the both of you.
