It's as if you have x-ray vision and can see through the veneer of social etiquette, revealing fears that are often kept safely hidden. You are aware of an unspoken agenda, even if everyone else is acting in a light-hearted manner. Your intuition might prompt you to retreat now because you're not sure that you want to engage in a conflict. Just don't pull inward too quickly; it may be that your worries were exaggerated. The person you thought was being negative could turn out to be your closest ally if you give him or her a chance.
You might believe that a relationship can't possibly meet your expectations. Instead of overcoming your fear and scheduling a memorable encounter, you may choose to just settle back into your familiar routine. However, this laid-back approach is not your best strategy and could leave you feeling disappointed with your choice. Taking the safest route won't necessarily help you reach your destination any sooner, so open up your heart and make the first move.
You may discover an important piece of information that you previously overlooked. You might have innocently assumed that others admire your creativity and support your ideas. Unfortunately, strong emotional undercurrents raise concerns as you try to comprehend the complexity of the situation. Don't attempt to figure it all out now; the energy shifts tomorrow, enabling you to gain a clearer understanding of your options.
Maintaining your self-esteem is challenging if your friends and associates don't share your values. You want everyone to understand what is really important to you, but the more you talk about your concerns, the wider the gulf becomes. You can try to analyse the situation and logically determine your best course of action, but cool reason may not lead to an ingenious solution. The wisest answers arise more easily once you stop seeking them so desperately and let your intuition guide the way.
Your life is not as happy-go-lucky as others assume; it might appear as if you are having a lot of fun, even if your heart is troubled. Your defence mechanisms effectively hide a deep well of emotions today. But just going through the motions isn't very rewarding, so share some of what's on your mind with someone you trust. If you're having a hard time starting the conversation, write down your thoughts and use your notes to get the ball rolling. Being your authentic self opens the door to a meaningful exchange.
Although you hope to balance your personal desires with the needs of others, your good intentions might run into resistance. You wish you could just gloss over your annoyance if you think that someone is keeping a secret. However, your suspicion can turn into anger if you don't voice your concerns. Ironically, you may be wrong about your hunch, but you'll feel a sense of relief once your fears are out in the open. Illuminating the shadows almost always makes them less scary.
Your attempt to maintain your cool is like trying to out run a tsunami. You know big changes are coming that could affect your closest relationships. Even if the shift still seems far off, you may already be feeling the pressure internally. Thankfully, you are capable of finding your way back to the centre now if you concentrate on honouring your core values instead of worrying about external events. If you remain true to your highest ideals then everything else will, hopefully, fall into place.
You don't need to tell everyone what they already know, but anyone who is overly critical today may be rudely surprised at the intensity of your response. However, you're not looking to alienate others. In fact, it's just the opposite; you yearn for meaningful contact with your closest friends. Those who are seeking shallow social banter could get an earful when you share the truth as you see it. There's no valid reason to bite your tongue; just prepare to deal with the consequences of your radical honesty.
You aren't interested in discussing your feelings today while the Moon visits your 12th House of Secrets. Even if others think that you're sharing your soul, you have more happening internally than anyone realises. In fact, your philosophical ramblings can cleverly hide the real juice. Bear in mind that you probably won't benefit from changing your tactics now. It's wiser to take the conversation to the next level only if you're ready to be more vulnerable with your heart.
You are more reserved in your conversations with others as you reconsider what you really want from relationships. Although you aren't likely to isolate yourself completely, you're wary about getting entangled with someone who might create unnecessary drama. Trust your instincts and be ready to walk away from a situation that could complicate your life without offering you any tangible benefits.
Although you have the best of intentions, your plans may be thwarted anyway through no fault of your own. Of course, you can't possibly control all the variables in your surroundings, but you can take full responsibility for your response to an unexpected event. Paradoxically, an overly positive reaction could be just as troublesome as a very negative one. Avoiding emotional extremes enables you to make the best of these tricky circumstances.
Your current state of heightened awareness puts you in contact with emotions that may be challenging to integrate. But denying feelings that you don't fully understand creates an entirely different set of problems. You could inadvertently disconnect from the source of your inspiration if you shut down your compassion. Thankfully, you can gracefully move through your day as long as you remember to keep checking in with your heart.
