Early Wednesday morning, Venus enters Libra, where she can effortlessly express her loving nature. Your attention will likely turn to your relationships: which ones make you happy? Which ones are out of balance and need to be treated? This is a good opportunity to make peace and mend fences. Just be careful not to smooth things over at the expense of your own needs. Late Thursday evening, communications planet Mercury enters sincere and independent Sagittarius. How do you best use this energy? Tell the truth. This is not the time to be shy or hold back out of fear that you don’t know the right words. The most important thing is to just be honest.
Life is complicated and there are rarely simple solutions to the problems it brings in your life, let alone societal, global ones. It can be enough to make you despair, give up hope, and lash out in frustration. This week your trust in other people could be restored. Not little by little, but by actively shaping it. When you do your best to live your values, no matter how challenging they may be, others will naturally be drawn to your confidence. You will feel less alone. You will once again believe that it is possible to change the world.
You’ve been struggling lately, as have many of your loved ones. Maybe you have felt burdened and discouraged. How can you hope to make a meaningful contribution when there is so much to do? What’s the point of helping if you can never help enough? This week, delve into the most stubborn part of yourself. Even if you can’t save the world right now, don’t give up trying. No matter what obstacles are placed in your path, they cannot take away your integrity, your spirit, your good, courageous heart.
In times of stress and upheaval, it sometimes feels like you are no longer “allowed” to laugh or joke – as if all you should experience are dark and gloomy feelings. It’s not that you don’t take life seriously and want to be caring and respectful, but part of you also wants to dance and play. This week it’s important not to feel guilty or suppress this side of yourself. Humans are complicated. You don’t have to hide your crowd.
You will do whatever it takes to protect the people you care about, and lately you’ve been doing even more. So it’s understandable that you need a break this week. Don’t think you can endure the exhaustion forever – it will catch up with you. Pay attention to your body this week. If you need to take a day off, cancel plans, do it. You are not lazy or neglecting your responsibilities: you are renewing your strength.
You’ve noticed cracks in certain relationships lately, perhaps even your closest and oldest relationships. People you thought you understood on a deep level have shown to be on a different wavelength; Friends you have known for years have changed, or perhaps you have changed. The flip side is that you also find out who you are may Really rely on it – and it may not be what you expect. Whether they’re casual acquaintances, new friends, or even people you’ve had differences with in the past, they’ll be there for you when you need it most.
You have a big heart, but it’s a challenge to be as generous as you want when your time is planned to the minute and your resources are planned to the penny when you yourself barely have what you need. However, this week, be intentional about sharing what you can. Not only because it’s the right thing to do, but also because your generosity will encourage others to do so. (That’s true always, but especially now.) It will deepen your relationships, strengthen your community, and make your own life better and more beautiful in ways you never imagined.
Sometimes self-doubt paves the way for growth: it causes you to dig deeper, question what you’ve been told, and open your mind to new ideas. You have experienced this in your own life as you have matured and expanded your understanding of the world. Still, especially this week, it’s important to remember that you can prevail even when it matters most. Not all It’s worth listening to the perspectives. Stay curious and open, but don’t let others push you around or make you believe that your experiences or values don’t matter.
When you are mistreated – and especially when it happens by the people closest to you – it can be difficult to trust again. Part of you remains suspicious and makes sure you never give more than you get in return. There is nothing wrong with wanting to protect yourself or being careful not to be taken advantage of. But for now, give yourself a break from your mind book. This is not a time for scoring points, but rather for loving others as fully as possible and being as generous with your time and attention as feels good to you You.
Your independent spirit is a gift; You are not afraid to fly solo, take risks and live life on your own terms. However, if you try to act alone this week, without support or help, you are likely to run into difficulties and become discouraged. You are reminded of your individual limits. The solution is not to give up or retreat into yourself, but to find other people to share the burden. You can’t do everything alone and you don’t have to: your friends are ready and willing to help.
Experience has given you the impression that courage and integrity are never rewarded – at least not in your life. From your boss to your parents to your social circle, it seems like everyone wants you to be nice and keep the peace so as not to rock the boat. This week, however, don’t worry so much about other people’s expectations. If you stay true to yourself and your values, even (particularly) When things are difficult, you will find that the right people are attracted to you.
You are endlessly curious about the world and the people in it; You have an active mind that constantly drives you to learn, search, and ask the big questions. However, the best way to expand your understanding this week is not through intellect, but through emotion. It may sound cheesy to you, but it’s true. Right now, you don’t have to have all the answers or even look for them. Instead, approach others with genuine interest and a genuine desire to socialize. It is enough to care and love people.
Relationships of all kinds are likely to be intense this week. Conflicts may seem earth-shattering; The slightest disagreement feels like the end of the world. At the same time, however, kind gestures and signs of support empower you more than you thought possible. It’s easy to feel embarrassed about your strong reactions, especially when they result from low-stakes encounters, but try to see them as a sign of your humanity. It means you kept your heart open.
