Mothers, aunts, sisters or nieces figure prominently in today's events. Old ways of reacting need to be exchanged for healthier responses. You can create a buffer zone, or choose to stop and feel your emotions as they arise. If repression of your true feelings was the way you coped as a child, now is the time to liberate that inner voice. Strength and self-confidence were acquired over years of painful work on yourself. Don't throw it all away. Being true to yourself reaps more rewards than following the path that others expect you to take.
Someone you once misjudged is looking very attractive. Tastes change for no apparent reason. Something in the way they move makes you more than just curious. You are tempted to say or do something risky. A deep longing awakens with amazing force. It may be foolhardy, but you are not being led by reason. What serves you well in this time of vulnerability is your sincerity. Even if your words are plainly spoken, the thought and feeling behind them is what is remembered. Sharing your own truth brings out the beauty in others.
Now that you realize what you've been missing, you go from being resigned to being determined. You are absorbed with getting your way. How can you prepare for all the possibilities when you are so fixed on the outcome? Don't hold back your flood of enthusiasm, but try to be flexible. Feeling controlled by a lack of money makes you irritable. You always seem to get what you need, even though you may not always get what you want. Make a gratitude list. You have more than you think you do.
Like splashing around in an old, favorite swimming hole, you are at home inside your own skin. Tapped into the stream of feelings, you are buoyed by a wash of emotions. You invent unique solutions to old problems today. You are available to assist others (more than usual) with matters of the heart. Strong emotions may also be accompanied by powerful new ideas. Take courage in your spirited self and be assertive. The wheel of fortune turns for those that spin it.
You might have to pocket your pride today, Leo. The Stars are making everyone a little touchy, and any arrogance (or the appearance thereof) may not be tolerated. Of course, you don't see it as arrogance, but as dignity. You can still hold your head up without sticking your nose quite so high in the air. You are sensitive to all sides of an issue, and are deferred to by those who need an objective opinion. Seeing the big picture comes to you with great ease. It is your generous nature that instills trust and wins hearts.
A gathering of women will be a promising affair for all Virgos. Your part may be organizing the group and delegating responsibility. No one is better suited to the task than you are. If you are of the male persuasion, get your own party going. You raise the spirits of others, and they in turn raise yours. On a dark night, you could easily slip into melancholy. If the alternative is a warm room with gracious friends in attendance, take it.
An emotional misfiring may set this day on edge. Feeling off kilter, you could be overreacting. You need to pull back and examine your unconscious motives. Don't count on others to match your wits. If you find yourself all alone in the clouds, enjoy the view. Your intellectual honesty points you in the right direction. Get in touch with the silence within yourself. Close your eyes and breathe. An unvarnished self-image settles itself in your mind's eye. Refined, stylish, suave and marvelous though you are, it's a relief to just accept that you are also a completely ordinary person.
Being in a more reflective, contemplative state wins you a great deal of respect. Though you have a lot to accomplish, you have a healthy approach to work. Conversations with friends and coworkers go to unexpected places. Associations are deepened and alliances made. If you have your sights set on something, today is the day to go for it. A full head of steam carries you where you need to go. It all seems so effortless when you let yourself go. The horizon is wide open and your vision is 20/20.
A transition is trying your patience. Whoever said life was fair believed in too many fairy tales. However, there is a rhyme and reason to everything. You have your own theories and philosophies that may help you gain perspective. Others are calmed by your overview, but refrain from overstating your point. Long-winded diatribes are tuned out, but short pep talks are eagerly anticipated. If you are in a relationship, take special care to be flexible and understanding. Being right isn't all it's cracked up to be.
It's easier to focus on someone else than it is to face yourself. It could be that your perfectionist persona is being overly self-critical. You'd love to get away from it all, but wherever you go, there you are. Home could actually be a haven if you just request a little space and time to yourself. Others are willing to listen when you come from a sincere -- not angry -- place. A new image about how you want to live your life is beginning to percolate in your subconscious.
All your ducks are lined up but you don't seem to be able to pull the trigger. Too much to do, too many demands on your time ... and is that a sore throat coming on? First things first: Don't deny any health issues. The body is an amazing healing organism if you give it the right combination of food, rest, exercise, work and spiritual sustenance. You might have been stretching yourself too thin. When you're in a fragile state everything looks so much more poignant. Make sure you have a lot of Kleenex on hand.
A romantic relationship is tested, and you pass with flying colors. You are in the zone, and your energy and vibrancy are appreciated by others. Your spirit wants to leap with joy when zany and creative things happen -- and you are making them happen. It's down with the mundane today. You walk, spin and jump in fun-loving circles. It is rare that people present the uncensored part of themselves. The music and poetry inside you comes out, and it's a beautiful thing. Be ready for some unaccustomed attention.
