Horoscopes for Wednesday,
May 20, 2015
Contrary to popular belief, you Rams can also behave like lambs; your gentle way of caring for those you love is obvious while the watery Cancer Moon softens your harder edges today. But nurturing others requires that you tend to your own needs, too. Instead of adding to your current stress by attempting to be everything to everyone now, slow down and be good to yourself. The seed of love is first planted at home.
Although you're feeling positive about your future today, there's still a serious streak within you that might find its way to the surface. It's not wise to blindly set your fears aside, for your concerns may be based on very real experiences from your past. To deny them is just plain foolhardy. Nevertheless, it's healthy to remember that current events are not identical to previous ones. Increase your options by carefully noting the differences between then and now. Reassessing your strengths and weaknesses inspires you to fulfill your potential.
You're riding some pretty intense cross-currents now, like an eagle gaining altitude while effortlessly gliding on the thermals. However, you may be carrying extra baggage in the form of unresolved feelings and the extra weight can turn easy soaring into a struggle against the prevailing winds. Fortunately, you have the ability to transform lingering negativity into something that motivates you. Shining the light of your awareness into the dark empowers you to overcome your last inch of resistance.
Allowing your past memories to surface can deepen your emotions today and add power to your reactions. The tenacious Cancer Moon may look back with nostalgia, yet your fear of the unknown needn't distract you from your current experience. Sometimes surging feelings are so overwhelming that they tempt you to shut out others, even the ones you love the most. However, it's different now because your recollections can be used as a source of inspiration to help you reach your goals.
You may have a spring in your step and a twinkle in your eyes today, even if you're not sure why. Although nothing significant has changed, you feel more trusting now, believing that the most important issues will simply sort themselves out on their own. In the meantime, you can't let go of your previous obligations. Nevertheless, it helps all the way around to maintain your joyful demeanor, even while taking care of serious business. The contagious smile on your face is your not-so-secret weapon.
Significant changes are in the air, even if you think you're quite content with the status quo. Although you want to avoid any form of confrontation, letting someone else dictate your needs now is not an option. There's no reason to mince words; be specific when talking about what your heart wants. If you state your case clearly and have a sensible plan to back up your intentions, you could very well improve the quality of your life before you know it.
Your path might be obscured today as you try to chart a course between your emotional needs and your obligations to others. Your positive attitude can make all the difference in the world. People may withdraw their support if you don't think you can realize your goals. Paradoxically, others will jump in to help clear the way if you are feeling competent. Fortunately, you excel at getting along with your peers; being a team player now is your ticket to success.
You may be currently working harder than you prefer, leaving you little time to enjoy the finer things of life. People might see you as more emotionally self-contained than usual, but that isn't necessarily how you feel on the inside. Although your determination to keep everything running smoothly can be your greatest asset now, don't be afraid to step out and have a little fun. There's no need to make a big deal of your plans as long as you commit to add some adventure into your routine. Variety is the spice of life.
Strong undercurrents of emotions today could make you afraid that you're going to be pulled off course by your own zest for life. Paradoxically, giving in to your exhilaration now can actually propel you in your desired direction. Let your enthusiasm give you the extra energy boost that you need in order to accomplish everything you promised. Don't hold back; allow your rising optimism to carry you to success.
Marginalizing your feelings isn't a viable strategy today, even if you seriously distrust the unreliability of subjective perceptions. Naturally, you prefer placing your faith in hard cold facts. However, it's time to tap into the emotional wisdom you often dismiss. Your intuition is opening now, so don't be afraid of listening to a hunch that comes from within. Push forward on your own, even if you're unable to justify your actions to anyone else.
Alternating mood swings can rock your day. One minute you're lost in deep meditation as you recall feelings from the past and apply your memories to the present circumstances. The very next moment has you wondering who you're fooling when you slip away into your imagination. Acknowledging the polarity is essential today; give yourself enough freedom so that your mind can seamlessly move between these two extremes. This contemplative practice ultimately empowers you to see things with more clarity and wisdom.
Your compassion is working on overdrive today, tempting you to bury your heart in the sand to cope with the pain and suffering. Instead, take the exact opposite approach and fully engage the outer world. You have little time to waste silently worrying about others when you could be volunteering in the community, fundraising for an altruistic cause or just lending a helping hand to someone in need. Putting your good intentions to work now is healthier than indulging in idle fantasy.
