Try not to get involved in others’ lives. It’ll help if you mind your own business. The evening will see you socialise with very influential people. Get your team to take part in group activities.
Unexpected developments will motivate you and push you in the right direction. Today is a good day for deals, but read legal documents thoroughly.
You will have a quiet and uneventful start of the day. On the domestic front, don’t take your partner for granted or you could end up hurting them.
Don’t give up on a relationship if things get boring, instead, work on bringing back the spark. Finances may be an issue, so plan well for the future.
Be cautious and vigilant with everything today and hope that the day ends on a peaceful note. Don’t waste time on a job that you’re not satisfied with. If it doesn’t make you happy, it is better to leave it.
Be careful as some people could misuse your friendship. Work situations will improve and you might even receive a promotion. Do not make hasty decisions, be very practical.
Maintain your calm in tough situations and don’t jump to conclusions. If you feel trapped in your current job, look for a new one. Don’t let your emotions get the better of you.
You may get a promotion and a raise in your salary. Avoid being impulsive or you could regret what follows. Try to complete unfinished tasks at hand.
Keep a tab on your eating habits. A message from a higher official could annoy you. Don’t lose your cool, no matter what happens.
Keep yourself busy with a new project and don’t let your mind wander. You could meet an interesting person. Also, be careful with your finances.
Don’t change yourself for others, you are fine just the way you are. Keep your anger under control. A good time to confess your feelings to that special someone. Exercise to stay healthy.
Domestic matters could demand your attention. You could want a change, both professionally and personally. Don’t fear change, it could be the best thing that happens to you.
May 19 2013 - May 25 2013
You are reaching for something distant. You doubt that it is possible to attain yet you cannot resist trying. You keep telling yourself that there must be an easier or more sensible way to proceed. Yet it is as if your heart is being pulled by some powerful, invisible magnet. If that is really the case, the distance is going to shrink, naturally, over time provided you don’t resist too determinedly. There may be no magic wand you can wave but there’s certainly an improvement you can set in motion. And soon... you will see your chance.
There are some things you just can’t control. It is as if they have a life of their own. When you encounter such a force, you can either respect it or resent it. What you can’t do is change it. Or, at least, not in a hurry. You know that you should never say never. You also know that what most people call ‘impossible,’ is much more aptly described as ‘very difficult’. So in the long run, who knows what you may be able to do about the situation you now face. For now, though, if you value your sanity, you will accept as much as you can!
Nature abhors a vacuum. If, therefore, you want to bring something into your life, all you have to do is create a space for it. The trouble is, we don’t like spaces. Gaps unnerve us. Absences put us on edge. We don’t like awkward silences in conversation. We dislike rooms that don’t have enough furniture. So we swing towards the other extreme. We cram in too much and end up appreciating nothing. This week allows you to create just the right amount of space in your life. Don’t fear the unanswered question.
It is never easy to let go. Even when we are tired of something — even when we have had enough of it, rather than move to some new inspiring topic we continue to think about whatever has hurt or upset us. It is as if we fear the loss of something familiar. We feel we ought to remain in control of everything — at all times — even if this obliges us to remain in a state of suffering. There is now something you know you need to put behind you. Don’t be afraid to kiss it goodbye this week. I promise, you will never miss it.
Strong leaders make many enemies and admirers during their years in power. But they don’t care. They believe passionately in their policies. All strong characters attract criticism. You now need to demonstrate your commitment to a particular principle. You can’t expect this to make you universally popular. But nor should you be ashamed of what now means so much to you. This week brings the chance to make a big leap of faith. Never mind what others think, follow what you feel and keep your nerve.
Appearances can be deceptive. But then, so can disappearances! Often, we think something has gone forever from our lives only to discover that it has been in hiding. That may be a cause for celebration or a reason for great concern. Not all absences are undesirable. But then, not all presences are pleasing! This week puts you back in touch with some old friends. It presents you with the chance to choose whether you fully want to renew a connection, or sever it. Don’t be fooled by how things seem. You CAN choose.
They say, ‘There’s no rest for the wicked.’ The good don’t exactly get to put their feet up, either. Indeed, they often have to expend a lot more energy. They can’t, for example, go around taking lots of naughty shortcuts. There are many ways now in which, if you were a lesser person, you could cheat your way out of a stressful situation. You could say whatever might get you off the hook or do whatever would be most convenient. But you’re going to be noble. And ultimately, that’s going to bring you more peace.
There is no great complicated formula. It is not as if you have to study for years to get the information or to reach an understanding. The issues we’re up against now require the application of nothing more (or less) than a little common sense. A lot of people are doing a lot of talking. A lot of opinions are being aired. In your heart, though, you can see a simple solution, a way to cut through all the confusion and get right to the essence of what’s gone wrong and how this can be fixed. Trust this emerging understanding.
What do we see when we look in the mirror? We see ourselves looking in the mirror! Usually, we smile back at ourselves. Even if we frown, we do it in a friendly way. If we really want to know how we come across to others, we need to watch ourselves when we are not looking. That’s tricky, even in this modern age of closed-circuit TV cameras. Yet the behaviour patterns we are all but unconscious of are only too obvious to those in our vicinity. This week, you get a valuable glimpse of something that you sorely need to see.
The old TV shows have a certain charm. Bilko, Bewitched, Lucy... they just don’t make them like that any more. Times, though, have to change. No matter how good something may be, it must move on. We can revisit the past and appreciate how wonderful it was, but we must also find a way to relish the present. Right now, you are finding it more comfortable to reflect than to dwell on what lies directly before you. Overcome your fear, concern or disapproval. Learn to love what’s happening. This is your moment... your chance!
You may not be feeling exceptionally ecstatic. It is, indeed, quite possible that a mood of intense aggravation has begun to descend upon you. This won’t be helped by continual exposure to astrological forecasts explaining that great, joyous, life-changing developments are happening as we speak. It probably seems to you as if a key situation is messy, and getting messier. Give it a little longer. The true picture is much more inspiring, and it will soon make itself very clear. Meanwhile, be philosophical about a little mess!
This is going to hurt me more than it hurts you.’ That’s what sadistic schoolteachers used to say before launching themselves into an act that today, would be considered despicable child abuse. Their statement, though, may not have been quite as hypocritical as it sounded. Whenever we knowingly cause pain to others, no matter how justified we believe our actions to be, we inflict far more damage on ourselves. This week brings you a choice. You can be ‘right’ or you can be ‘big’. Be big. Be sympathetic. Be kind.
