Monday Morning Horoscope #159 for Jan. 14, 2019
Don’t allow yourself to be too distracted by family or partnership matters. Yes, that may be like saying “ignore the traffic jam on the Cross Bronx Expressway during the evening rush hour,” which you can in fact do if you break out a map and find your way around the bottleneck. Indeed, matters are not so urgent as they may seem, and the most helpful approach will be to keep your sense of humor handy. It will also help to take a natural approach to endings, and make a point of welcoming specific ones into your life. Certain situations have run their course, which you will soon see is a positive thing. However, these days it’s trendy to live in the past and cling to what you have. I would describe that as a bad habit, and one that blocks many other possibilities from your view. Thought of another way, clinging to the past gnaws away at your confidence. Keep your mind on the future and on your considerable potential and you will feel bold and assertive. Let things happen at their own pace.
Monday Morning Horoscope #167 for March 11, 2019
You may set in motion events far beyond what you’re able to perceive. It would be wise to assume your words and actions have both impact and influence, and act accordingly. While you don’t have control, you can be aware that your intentions and impulses ripple out through the world (meaning various forms of social networks, as well as on the subtle levels), and commit to being a source of good vibes. You can also serve in the role of translator. Many people have not quite mastered the skill of saying what they mean or meaning what they say. This may be from lack of precision, lack of understanding, or intentional misrepresentation. Give people the benefit of the doubt, and when in doubt, ask them what they mean by their words. You can do so without any emotional charge at all; if you’re even meekly uncertain, or if someone’s words may be taken a few different ways, politely ask for clarification and see what comes back.
Monday Morning Horoscope #183 for July 1, 2019
You’re about to experience an opening on the professional front. I know it’s been a rough couple of months, particularly where the more important aspects of work are concerned. By that I mean your higher goals, your reputation, your relationships to important people. You have made more progress than you might think. Your own sensitivity usually warns you off of being too assertive (which leads to your being subversive, and that is worse). You have begun to set things in order, which takes energy, focus, and confidence, even if you have to fake it every now and then. Tuesday’s solar eclipse in Cancer, your solar 10th house (associated with all of the above) is an invitation to refine your goals and objectives. While these are always a work in progress, you are at a rare moment of alignment right now, where you can thread the needle and pierce all the seeming layers of what stands between you and what you want. Essential to this process is letting yourself focus on daring possibilities that you know are right or you. In fact, one is enough.
Monday Morning Horoscope #189 for August 12, 2019
You continue to be under spectacularly amazing aspects, though I want to check in with you about whether you feel that way. I only say this from the experience of feeling under the weather during gorgeous astrology. So check in with yourself and see if you can find what’s bothering you, if something is. For everyone else: get out and among the people. Or dive into a creative project you’ve been wanting to do. Your artistic potential is as bold as your social potential. Sometimes the two are at odds: you really want to stay home or in your studio and finish that thing, and it’s a great night to go out. Try to weave that together, and make sure you get as much done as possible when the social prospects are a little boring, so you will feel better when you have the chance to go out. Also, remember how good a little progress every day makes you feel. If I recall, pretty good.
Monday Morning Horoscope #197 for Oct. 7, 2019
With Mars newly in your sign, you may feel ready to take on the world. For now, though, take it on gently. With this week’s predominant aspect being Mars opposite Chiron, pay special attention to your human encounters. You might check out the Aries horoscope for a description of this astrology; I will offer another here. As you go through this week (and your life), you may notice that some people put their injuries on display, while others lead with their strengths. I think both are attempts to say, “I am human.” Chiron teaches a specific kind of human alchemy: that of using one’s sense of injury, and one’s pain, as a means of concentrating strength. Note carefully where people are coming from: do they allow their pain or struggle to compel them to grow? Or is it more of an excuse? When someone presents themselves as strong, is that strength rooted in an understanding of the fragility of the human realm? This will help you consider the same matters for yourself.
