Now is the time to do something wild, crazy, out of the ordinary or just plain silly. Hop in the car and drive to the nearest small town to lunch in a park, or spread blankets on a rooftop and sip sparkling water while discussing Descartes. Be spontaneous. This will not only allow you to relax and unwind, but it will also stir the juices of creativity. By the time all is said and done, you'll have a much better idea of where exactly the road of life is taking you.
When you wake up this morning, you may feel especially refreshed. What happened to all that stress, all that tension that was collecting on your shoulders just a week or two ago? It's melting away faster than April snow. Enjoy the warm and inviting emotional sunshine by inviting someone to join you under your proverbial umbrella. It seems that you are just the antidote to the depression someone around you is feeling. Let them into your world, and you'll be happier, too.
You've been sensitive and empathetic to your friends, but perhaps you need to be more straightforward. The stars indicate that right now you have license to say what you need to say, even if someone's feelings are bruised in the process. If you get those unspoken questions and observations out in the open, at least you can imagine and consider a few answers. If you keep them inside, they're only going to sit there and build a lot of resentment.
It looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck. While in most situations like this you could bet your bottom dollar that it is indeed a duck, there are also times when you can and will be fooled. Circumstantial evidence may be fine for made-for-television movies, but do you really need to jump to conclusions when it comes to questions about those people you love? It would probably be wise to wait for more evidence. There is probably more -- or less -- to the story than you realize.
How much have you changed in recent years? You may not really know for sure until you're put to the test. Rest assured that things are indeed getting easier every day. Years ago, an encounter like the one that's looking increasingly inevitable would have probably set you shuddering in your boots. Now, however, you are older, wiser and have a better idea of what you're capable of accomplishing. You really can deal with tough challenges.
The cosmic poker deck seems stacked against you, and right now it seems that just about everyone is in on the conspiracy. There's a way to get out of this, but it requires some tough-mindedness on your part. Over the next few days, you need to tune out the parts of the cold, cruel world that frustrate and upset you. Tune into another person -- their foibles, their gifts and the way they enchant you. You'll find comfort in the arms of precious loved ones.
You can daydream all you want about roses, exotic getaways and romantic poems. Just keep in mind that there is much more to love than what we hear in storybooks and ballads, just as there is more to life than winning the lottery or striking gold. Be ready to deal with the nuts and bolts of commitment, devotion and emotional maintenance. Be ready to get your hands dirty as you begin the fine-tuning. Things are by no means perfect right now, but they're in darn good shape.
Don't try to force a quick solution to an old problem. If you do, you may be too willing to jump at the first glittery boat that sails by. You need to make sure that you hop aboard the vessel that will take you to the place that you want to go, not simply one that rescues you from a trying situation. In the past you have proven that you can get through tough times by relying on your wits, your heart and your instincts. Luckily for you, these resources will once again be there when you need them.
If you want two very distant and different worlds to begin building a bilateral communication system, you need to start considering what you will and will not compromise on. It's one thing to enjoy things when no demands are made of you. It's another thing altogether when you get the short end of the stick time and time again, just because you want to keep the peace. Consider your own needs and talents, and see how they fit into the whole equation.
Hold off on any hard decisions for at least a couple of days. Right now you're only seeing the blueprints, yet you're breaking your neck trying to get the complete view. Soon, however, you'll be strolling through the whole building and soaking up the details. Believe it or not, a new vision is dawning. Within the wells of your subconscious, wheels are turning and paradigms are shifting. Something is about to break through the surface.
Although you may like to pretend now and again, the truth is that you aren't nearly as weak as you have convinced yourself that you are. You need to draw on your inner strength. Give the smaller things in your life more attention and credit, especially when it comes to dealing with emotional issues. This is a good day to tune out the negative and tune into the positive. You have accomplished so much, and you have every reason to hold your head high.
Do you get the feeling that a showdown is inevitable? If a friend, family member or lover is making extra-tough demands on you, perhaps you need to lay down the law and put some space between the two of you. You have been giving plenty. If trends are going to continue, you'll need to replenish your resources. Take care of yourself now in order to ensure that you'll have something left to give in the near future. Exhausting your emotional, psychological and bodily resources will benefit no one.
