You may be convinced that pretty much anything is possible today. However, it could be tough to balance your outrageous dreams with a more pragmatic approach to life. Frustration can get in the way of your happiness when assertive Mars tangles with excessive Jupiter, forcing you to increase your efficiency and narrow your vision. Nevertheless, it’s not a good idea to settle for less; even if there are practical issues to address, they could be critical steps propelling you to the stars. Work steadily and consistently if you want the rewards to follow.
Keep your eyes on the ball since precision control of your actions is crucial now that energetic Mars bounces off giant Jupiter. Missteps in matters of the heart, complications with children and glitches in creative projects are possible. Still, you can avoid the unexpected by consciously channeling the urgency you feel into your work. Minimize your distractions and concentrate on the task at hand. Managing your emotions allows you to make a powerful impression in a low-key manner.
Themes of expansion and contraction make it hard to find the right mix between too much and not enough. You may be required to temper your excitement about the future because of the demands of a more immediate situation involving your home or family. The most extreme plan can work now if you take it one solid step at a time. Nevertheless, standing on the edge of something big is both thrilling and nerve-racking. Integrate the small changes day by day so you don’t get overwhelmed and walk away. Fear looks, faith jumps.
You may rush ahead and take unnecessary risks today, but impulsive actions only remind you that you do better when you consider your words and actions first. Warrior Mars rams into a clunky alignment with bombastic Jupiter, possibly inciting an argument or leading you in the wrong direction. It might not be easy to manage your intensity now, yet limiting the scope of your endeavors and tempering your language allow you to apply your passions more productively. George Lucas teaches, “Always remember, your focus determines your reality.”
Everything you fix today seems to create new problems, like the mythical many-headed Hydra. Your I-can-do-it attitude may backfire now, even if you have the best of intentions when superhero Mars misaligns with overblown Jupiter. Don’t get sidetracked by the immediate effects of your behavior; just keep making the necessary adjustments until you’re back on your feet and on solid ground. Nelson Mandela said, “After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb.”
Relationships may be a source of irritation today because you can’t find enough clarity on the problem in order to resolve it. Something doesn’t feel quite right, yet the closer it is to you, the more elusive it becomes. Although you’re willing to do almost anything, the solution continues to slip through your hands. Ironically, answers come when you stop asking questions. The simple act of shifting your attention elicits the resolution you seek. As psychiatrist Viktor Frankel wrote, “When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.”
You might feel as if you’re dancing in the dark today, uncertain of your next step. You may think you need more time to evaluate your options while reactive Mars creates a nagging aspect with auspicious Jupiter. It seems as if any choice you make now isn’t the right one. Fortunately, Mercury in strategic Capricorn comes through with a sound plan that gives you the benefit of the doubt. Trust your dreams, even if the possibilities before you appear limited. Your horizons will continue to broaden as long as you keep hope alive.
You can breathe a welcome sigh of relief if love and creativity are flowing more freely today. But imagination is not an escape from reality; it’s a window to a more wondrous world that is within your reach. An exciting Mars-Jupiter connection produces colorful fireworks, distracting you from your regular duties. However, a petty disagreement could suddenly burst into flames of fury now, so do your best to avoid direct confrontation. Anything can happen in the heat of the moment. Staying neutral gives you time to take what you need and let go of the rest.
Managing your energy wisely seems like an impossible task today, especially if you are swept up by a wave of enthusiasm. Nevertheless, armed with a grand idea, you’re ready to take on the world as you battle for survival. Unfortunately, self-righteousness could instigate a war of words that prevents you from reaching your goals. Stick to the facts and sidestep unnecessary conflict based upon mere differences of opinion. Joyce Meyer wrote, “Patience is not the ability to wait, but how you act while you’re waiting.”
Orderly thought and decisive action make perfect sense to a calculating Mountain Goat. However, action-planet Mars crosses paths with indulgent Jupiter, leading you on a wild goose chase or sparking misplaced anger. You may believe that you need to react immediately or things will quickly grow out of control today. Nevertheless, a moment of self-restraint in the midst of an emotional exchange could save you many moments of regret later on.
You may benefit from redirecting your energy today if you hope to find resolution to a lingering conflict. Normally, you’re more than willing to attack a complex problem head-on. However, maintaining your focus is difficult when contentious Mars goads boisterous Jupiter, sending you off on a wild ride. Delicately dancing around an argument now reduces tension, saving wear and tear on both you and your relationships. You can always reengage in negotiation after the drama subsides, but don’t wait too long. Virginia Woolf wrote, “You cannot find peace by avoiding life.”
You’re itching for action as your wanderlust continues to grow, but somehow your goals become less specific over time. It’s hard to tell today whether you’re making concrete plans or just idly watching the clouds roll by. Thankfully, there’s no need to struggle now; your best bet is to postpone big decisions until you are clear about your direction. In the meantime, try a bit of escapist fare as purposeful Mars skids into an awkward misalignment with joyful Jupiter. Edgar Allan Poe wrote, “They who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.”
