Top News Brief
A need could arise for you to assert yourself and take control of what you might see as rudderless. The sooner you step in, the sooner you'll gain a better or more accurate understanding of what you deal with – and this revelation might surprise one or two others. Your ability to see how something stands in the present and where it needs to head in the future will ensure it gets there!
An excellent way to strengthen relationships involves removing assumptions and asking for input straight from the “horse's mouth.” (Of course, I don't refer to anyone in your world as a horse.) However, even your awesome intuition might not be as reliable as the first-hand intel or insights you can receive by doing something daring, courageous, and potentially life-changing – asking for them!
Resisting structure might be an exercise in futility now, Aries. But if you slow down and allow particular progress to unfold gradually – because it can – then what you feel forced to accept will be much easier. What needs managing promises to benefit you. You might not see how chaotic or in a state of disarray something was until you see how it glows with pure effectiveness!
Usual? Normal? Traditional? Not a chance, Taurus! The Moon amps up your creative flair and pushing limits and boundaries isn't just for fun – it's cosmically sanctioned. But don't get carried away and forget to consider the implications to others by causing disruption. Opposition from some folk is likely too, so go easy on those needing time to understand your unusual or revolutionary approach.
Talk, as they say, is cheap, but you may not tolerate lip service and want to go deeper conversationally if it helps you make an important point. However, don't forget to leave space for listening and asking others what they think. That unselfish act keeps dialogue flowing helpfully and could be appreciated by one or two people who will be glad you asked for their input.
Social interaction and encouraging it among others bring all-round happiness! You could be integral in getting certain folk together, but your efforts don't benefit only them. Yes, there may be some introductions or get-togethers that need your brand of attentive care to happen. But you stand to make useful contacts and – hey, who knows? - maybe a new friend from this.
If people seem extra determined or persuasive, perhaps you're dealing with like minds, not annoying individuals. But it may be up to you to curtail excessive enthusiasm on their part or provide the grounding one or two people need. They could be taken in by smooth talkers, even if there is a hint of possibility in what has them fired up. But your input and wisdom could be exactly what's needed.
The Moon in your sign urges you to look out for Number One. What inspires or excites you will probably meet with resistance from others anyway. As Luna links with grumpy Saturn, it may be in your and others' best interests for you to keep some distance and let them get on in whatever ways suit them. You're helping them by allowing them to do this, so no guilt trips should apply!
The Moon wants you to kick back, relax and push worries aside. That might be easier said than done, though. Responsibilities could tug from umpteen directions, and, on this occasion, you may need to be on form to deal with what comes your way. What does “on form” mean? Healthy. Well-rested. Not putting mud in your body's engine and expecting it to function effectively. You get the idea.
Handing over the reins, baton or allowing someone to take the lead with something isn't a cop-out. You can be integral to a far better outcome with a group effort than you or anyone else thought. But for this to happen, you need to accept the benefits of stepping back or at least sharing experience-based wisdom. In true Scorpio style, you could spot mistakes along the way long before they happen.
How does that bizarre saying about catching monkeys go? Ah yes, “softly, softly, catchee monkey.” It means move carefully or gently to accomplish a goal. But you may need to create structure within - and apply more patience to - what you thought you could “wing it" with. Don't see structure and patience as boring. They're essential ingredients to longevity with whatever it is you're doing.
Is there a downside to exceeding a target? A worst-case scenario means you at least come in where you needed to be. But if you sense there are benefits to aiming higher – or pushing your luck further in a particular way – you could be in a win/win situation. As always, you have experience-based wisdom to draw on from the past. But you and others could be in awe of how you surprise yourself.
