Some people, when entering a hotel room for the first time, rearrange furniture. That's their prerogative. It does beg questions about effort required to rearrange a hotel room if the stay is for one night but if they believe it is justified, then fair enough. Similarly, you appear to be weighing up benefits of making a short term change but one that could require an unusual amount of effort. Before going to lengths you appear willing to go to, be sure that the change really is necessary.
Life is meant to be an evolving, learning process. That's why we're here. The more we evolve, the more we're supposed to have learned. We often hear people say 'such things are sent to test us' and sometimes, when we encounter an obstacle, that's true. This week, expect to have both your ability to think quickly and patience tested. As the week draws to a close though, you will be rewarded for your actions and this, I am certain, will make you smile.
Secrets pose interesting dilemmas. How do we expect someone else to keep a secret when we've clearly been unable to keep it ourselves? This week, information is likely to come to light that will give you food for thought. What you choose to divulge is up to you, but with the astro climate being as tense as it is, you might not do yourself any favors by letting something slip that someone else would have preferred you kept quiet about. Be very careful and discreet now.
We are all blessed with an ability to feel a wide range of wonderful and warm feelings. One of these is knowing our instincts were right about something, or knowing we have implemented a strategy that was the most practical and correct. Slowly but surely, uncertainty in some areas of your world is being replaced with certainty and awareness that you were right to pursue a particular plan of action. This week, further evidence becomes available that can only delight you.
Money, we are told, makes the world go round. There are many artists who have sung about love doing the same thing. This week brings a necessary lesson where both love and money are concerned. Don't misinterpret the word 'necessary' as 'harsh'. You and a certain person with whom you have a close relationship need to establish or possibly reestablish boundaries where what each of you owns and shares are concerned. The outcome is guaranteed to be pleasing.
Those of us who enjoy cooking have favorite recipes. Over time, we discovered the best way to use ingredients to give a desired taste. Unless our culinary creations are completely unique, there are many other people cooking the same dishes but in their own way. My point? You've grown very used to a certain situation being done a certain way. This week, to your delight, you will discover there is more freedom to change it to suit your taste than you've believed there was.
When we're involved in a decision-making process, we tend to focus on short term implications of our decisions. We ponder how our decision will affect our lives immediately and what we will have to cope with or adjust to. We make decisions based on facts available in the knowledge that we don't possess crystal balls to see how our decisions turn out. You're about to make a long-term decision. The sky is on your side to ensure it is both timely and right.
Do we really get only one chance to make a first impression? Surely, we're not all so quick to make judgement on others. First impressions undoubtedly count, but we're usually inclined to give someone a second assessment, only to confirm if our judgement was right the first time around! This week, don't concern yourself with how you're being seen by someone. You have no reason to believe you're not passing a certain 'test' with flying colours.
You can't win them all. Imagine how tedious life would be if we succeeded at everything we attempted. We need failures in order to truly enjoy successes. We need to get the negatives out of the way before we can receive the positives. This week, although you might find yourself focussing on your shortfalls or failures more than successes, the sky has plans to give you good reason to feel optimistic. Allow a bit of time for that reason to reveal itself. It will.
In areas of our world where we cannot decide what we want, we often believe that the only way to narrow down what we truly want is to apply much thinking to the problem. We think. We think some more. We attempt to make a decision but invariably find that more thinking is required. Where you are struggling to determine what you believe you want, try focusing instead on what you know you don't want. This will help you to reach a crucial decision this week.
People have different ideas about what constitutes 'selfishness'. When we give constantly, we tend to do so to make us feel good about ourselves. But when people grow used to our giving constantly and we find that we're receiving little in the way of gratitude, we're seen as selfish when we withdraw our support. This week brings essential focus on what you need, why you need it and why it's time to address your needs over and above those of others.
It's amazing what time combined with pressure can achieve. There are, of course, limits to how much pressure we can tolerate. It can also be said that there are clear limitations to how much we can achieve within limited timescales regardless of how hard we try or how much pressure we're put under. Pressure appears to be coming from an individual who believes you share the same goal. Perhaps you do, but might you be more realistic and pragmatic than you-know-who?
