The future is always in motion, so don't stress if you can't quite make out your goal right now. Simply deal with events as they come along, and try not to control or predict the future too stringently. After all, life has many wonderful surprises to offer, but the trick is to be in a receptive state so you can appreciate those surprises. For now, put the past behind you and focus on the present. The future will be here before you know it.
Someone's in the mood for love. Is it you? Could be! And if it's not you, someone you're very close to is feeling just full of affection and mischief. So if your spirits aren't up there already, they'll soon reach new heights thanks to the celestial influences that call for lots of romance and fun in this moment. So make sure you have a snazzy outfit that's ready to go, because while the day is fun, you never know what the night could bring.
It's all too easy to get bogged down in shoulda-coulda-woulda as well as, 'But I could never do that.' Don't put limits on what you can achieve before you even get started. What's even more discouraging, however, is when you demand too much of yourself at once. So you want to sing like Kelly Clarkson but can't read a note of music? Start small. Look up a voice teacher. Next, maybe sign up for lessons, and so on and so on. After that, the possibilities are endless.
You're a maestro at orchestrating swinging social situations, and this ability comes into play in some very particular ways right now. Whether it's planning a surprise party or some other kind of celebratory event, you're able to combine the elements in such a way that it will delight and astonish everyone who attends. Don't be afraid to call upon others for some help in making sure your plans come to fruition -- the more, the merrier!
Responsibility can seem an awful lot like a four-letter word, especially these days. Haven't you done enough? Isn't there someone else who can help pick up the slack? Those are very good questions. However, you may not be able to answer them until you grit your teeth and simply soldier on through these next few tasks. Afterward, sit down and evaluate where you're putting your time and energy in your life -- and how you can alleviate some of the weight.
There's nothing more poignant than an unfulfilled promise. Is there an area of your life you've been neglecting? Perhaps a hobby or a career ambition or just a promise to spend more time with someone that's fallen by the wayside in all the hustle and bustle of everyday life? It's easy to get pulled away from things that have deeper meaning, but if you make an effort, you can get back on track with something (or someone) that you once loved.
You know how a turtle has that hard shell and a soft tummy he has to protect from possible predators? Well, apply that analogy to someone in your life right now -- they might look hardened and tough on the outside, but really, they're just protecting themselves the best way they know how. So before you decide to dismiss them as unresponsive or unemotional, give them a second chance. They just might need time.
Racing toward the finish line gets your blood and spirits pumping in just the way you need. You thrive under competitive circumstances and in contests of skill and endurance. But after this is over, you're still going to need an outlet for all your energy. Have you ever thought about running a marathon or starting a pick-up soccer game around your neighborhood? It'd be a great way to stay in shape and meet people, too.

Break off that big project into bite-size chunks, and you'll suddenly find that it's a lot easier to swallow. It's funny the way deadlines seem to wear soft-soled shoes and then sneak up on you when you least expect them. In this case, if you're able to stay calm and take care of the small details that make up this situation and tackle them one by one, you'll be finished in no time. After it's all over, you'll be asked how you did it so easily. Just smile enigmatically, okay?
Your brain needs food, too. So turn off the TV and do something rich, stimulating and invigorating. Watch the neighborhood kids play. Go for a hike. Write a letter to someone you love but haven't talked to in far too long. Pick up those paints you haven't touched since college. Go to a poetry reading. The world is immense, fascinating and rich. Life's far too short not to explore as much of it as you can.
As someone in Wonderland said to Alice, it's best to try to believe at least three impossible things before breakfast. The funny thing is once you let yourself believe them, they don't seem all that impossible to begin with. The first step is to let yourself believe that such benevolence is in store for you. So go ahead -- what are three wonderful, lovely and no-way-that-could-happen-to-me things that you want in your life?
Like a butterfly emerging from its chrysalis, you've taken some pretty tough circumstances and used them to grow. Now you're developing into something lovely and fantastic beyond your wildest imaginings. During times like these, it's good to remember how grateful you are -- not only for the easy things in your life, but for the tough circumstances as well. They've shaped you into someone amazing. Take a moment to honor yourself.
