Monday Morning Horoscope #159 for Jan. 14, 2019
Keep your focus on the practical — what you need to get done, and why. Gradually, you will assemble the parts of a much larger picture. Use time to your benefit, and take the flexibility that you have. If you’re feeling squeezed, evaluate whether certain deadlines can be extended for a short time. Others may lend themselves to postponement. The moment you’re feeling stressed by deadlines, get out of your head, break down your schedule, and do a reality check with your colleagues and collaborators. It’s true there are certain pressing matters that must be attended to, including a few things you need to wipe off your slate. Be eager to resolve or dispense with any project or task that is toast, or that you’re ready to move on from. Greater accomplishments await you, and when the Sun changes signs to Aquarius in about a week, you will be engaging some bold new plans. Therefore, clear the stumbling blocks from your path.
Monday Morning Horoscope #167 for March 11, 2019
Mars and Uranus in your sign are giving you a burst of energy and excitement about life: the rare sense that something new is possible in the world. These are the two most energetic planets, and they’re inspiring you to get yourself moving. You can set aside your previous plans and do something interesting, giving preference to what you’ve never done before. I don’t know what that brings to mind for you, though with your ruling planet Venus transiting your 10th house of career and reputation, you’re in a position to co-create something helpful, with the collaboration of others. You would, however, be the one to take the lead, such as by proposing an idea for something you want to see happen. Your intuition is working well, with Mars harmoniously aligned with Neptune, and this will help any cooperative venture. Make sure beauty as well as practicality factor into your schemes. Outside of work, take the lead on making social plans.
Monday Morning Horoscope #183 for July 1, 2019
You may be involved in circumstances where you’re offering yourself in service to something for the greater good. There are people for whom this is a strange idea; I reckon it’s something you understand, for sure in theory, and with increasing experience from practice. You have the ability to facilitate progress for someone. The way this works, it will not come with a setback for you; that is true healing: it involves an increase or improvement all around. At the same time, you are making up your mind about something that has proven resistant and, at times, contentious for you — a source of conflict that may be reminiscent of your mother’s state of mind when you were much younger. A vent opens up for you, or a drain, and lets off pressure you’ve been carrying around and may have been building up over the past couple of months. Let it out. If any harsh words were spoken, you also have an opportunity to make amends.
Monday Morning Horoscope #189 for August 12, 2019
You may feel like you’re being asked to give something up, or to sacrifice yourself, though that is a misunderstanding. Actually, you’re in a position to make something possible that would not ordinarily happen. That is a privilege and a responsibility more than an imposition. The better you do it, the more like a privilege it will feel. There are a few points to emphasize. One is that you are involved in creating space for a kind of gathering. There may be a risky or edgy feeling to what is happening — as if something daring is being attempted. You are among those who keep the process safe, like the person calmly standing there with the fire extinguisher during a fireworks display. Your home factors into events, and may be a focal point, such as for a meeting or social event of some kind. Such a gathering may represent the start of an important project.
Monday Morning Horoscope #197 for Oct. 7, 2019
Someone you care about may be a little tweaked by their own response to you; they’re experiencing something a bit more intense than they may have anticipated. It’s one of those situations where they may not know whether to be attracted or repelled. You’re not accustomed to people having such strong reactions, though welcome to Uranus in your sign. This is the antithesis of your usual energy presentation, which is usually all about being understated, or rather, people perceiving you this way. Usually you are in full control of your image, though those days are behind you. One challenging life lesson (especially for sensitive people) is not taking personally how people respond to us, even if that response seems to be personal. Another aspect of your new dynamic is giving yourself permission to be more spontaneous, and to bring out your weird side. There is no point hiding it; it’s impossible not to notice.
