Daily Horoscopes: 10/12/2011
A shocking bit of news causes you to change your habits. You can no longer indulge a particular vice that is jeopardising your health. Cutting out alcohol, fat, or sugar will be extremely difficult at first. You might want to join a support group. People who are undergoing the same struggles will give you the encouragement you need to keep going. That may sound simplistic to an independent creature like you, but sometimes the simplest solutions are the most effective ones.
A source of income could come to a sudden end. This puts pressure on your personal life. Romance will have to be relegated to the back burner while you’re busy finding a new job. While you’re learning the ropes, you’ll have to curtail some of your favourite pastimes. This is really difficult for a creative person like you, who treats cooking, gardening, and handicrafts as essential as breathing. Keep reminding yourself that this is only temporary. Right now, financial security takes precedence over pleasure.
It seems like your entire family is projecting all their frustrations onto you. Nothing you do or say will ever satisfy them. It looks like you’ll have to strike out on your own, even at the risk of losing their support. Whether this means embarking on a different lifestyle, changing your look, or pursuing another career is immaterial. The important thing is to understand your own needs and work towards them. If that means disappointing your nearest and dearest, so be it.
You haven’t had a lot of time to be alone, and it’s taking a toll on your health. As much as you hate to do it, you’ll have to establish some firm boundaries with a colleague who keeps interrupting you. Although you’re sympathetic to their problems, you’ve got your own work to do. Besides, you have to protect your interests in a job market like this. These days, employers are being forced to cut positions left and right. Now is the time to prove your worth as an employee.
Friends are growing resentful of a romance, and who can blame them? They’re sick and tired of being stood up. You can’t afford to neglect them any longer. Cancel a hot date for the sake of a birthday or anniversary party. Your loved ones have supported you through thick and thin; now it’s time to return the favour. This may feel like emotional blackmail, but it’s really just a test of loyalty. Lovers come and go, but friends should be forever.
An embarrassing mistake comes to light, forcing you to admit you were wrong. This is very difficult for a perfectionist like you. Strangely, once you make your confession, you’ll notice people will become much more friendly. That’s because they used to be intimidated by you. Now you have come down to their level, you can all work together in a spirit of harmony. Resist the urge to cover up errors with lame excuses. The truth will set you free.
You’re undergoing a crisis of faith, and need some answers. Retreating to a private place where you can gather your thoughts is critical. Lately, a manipulative person has been affecting the choices you’ve made. You can no longer afford to be within their sphere of influence. Cut ties with this rogue and go your own way. This is a bad time to get embroiled in legal matters. Walk away with what you have, or you could lose even more.
It’s time to settle your debts, both emotional and financial. Breaking free of an obligation will make you vulnerable, but it will also prompt you to become more self reliant. Certain friends will be upset if you stop sharing your resources, feeling you owe them for services rendered. You’ve more than fulfilled your duties to these people. If your relationship is simply based on what you can do for each other, you’re better off going solo.
A contract or partnership will experience a profound change. The agreement that once bound you together no longer applies. You’ll have to do some deep soul searching to decide whether you want to forge another deal or go your separate ways. An authority figure is bearing down hard, forcing you to choose between your personal and professional lives. The way it stands, you must protect your career objectives. You’ve worked too hard to throw all this progress away.
A work assignment comes to a close, leaving you at a loose end. It may turn out that someone with more training or experience will edge you out for a position. This just goes to show it is never too late to learn. Going back to the classroom will make it easier to get a stable position. It will also give you a chance to reconsider your career trajectory. Perhaps entering a new industry will expand your moneymaking opportunities. It’s important to be realistic in an economy like this.
Shocking developments prompt you to take a second look at a romance. The object of your affection is not what they seem. Take a more balanced view of their strengths and weaknesses. It’s possible money or sex is being used as a weapon against you. A temporary separation will give you a chance to view the situation more objectively. If you’re single, you might have to shelve a creative project until a friend’s personal life settles down.
A property deal or move could fall through at the last minute. This puts incredible strain on an intimate relationship. The two of you will have to resist the urge to turn on each other when the going gets rough. Formulate a plan for moving forward. This might require you to switch roles or change how you interact. If you’re looking for a place to live, spread the word among friends and family. By taking advantage of your extensive social network, you’ll find a better domestic situation.
