It’s time to scale back your professional commitments, even at the risk of losing a promotion. If you’re in a relationship, make more quality time for your amour. Take a break together. Plan some romantic dinners. Be more attentive to your partner’s needs. Are you single? You’ll become more attractive to love when you stop working around the clock. Get your priorities straight. There’s nothing virtuous about being a workaholic; it really just deprives your nearest and dearest of affection.
Legal problems are affecting your enjoyment of daily life. Take a few steps back from this toxic situation and review your options. If you can settle out of court, do so. The justice you seek won’t be met, but you will have saved yourself a great deal of money, heartache and stress. Are you being forced to undergo a trial or hearing? Find an outlet for your frustrations. Daily exercise will be therapeutic. So will creative activities like writing or painting or working with your hands.
A power struggle over money is making you unhappy. You no longer have time for the people and activities you love. The sooner you get this issue resolved, the better. If you have to hire a legal eagle, do it. Are you arguing over paying some outstanding bills? It may be better to pay the balance rather than get protracted in a lawsuit. If you’re dealing with a more personal, intimate issue, you will have to be as calm, cool and collected and possible to prevail in this battle.
An alliance is putting stress on your family life. Your relatives don’t approve of your personal or professional partner. Be honest about whether their misgivings are warranted or not. Are you involved with an abusive romantic partner? End the relationship immediately. You can’t take a chance on an unstable person who is capable of hurting you. Is someone close involved in shady business? Put an end to this union. If you don’t, your reputation will be tarnished by their nefarious behaviour.
A health setback is signalling you to slow down. By reducing your schedule, you’ll feel better on every level. Stop pushing yourself to produce the work of ten people. You won’t lose any respect. The next time someone asks you to give resources to a community project, say no. Don’t volunteer to help at your child’s school or work at a fundraiser. It’s counterintuitive for a generous person like you to turn down requests for assistance. Stand firm. Your wellbeing should be your first priority.
Someone close is getting beyond your control. If your amour continues to treat you in a disrespectful manner, it’s time to cut off the relationship. Are you dealing with a disobedient child? Get some counselling. The only behaviour you can change is your own. The source of the trouble is a difference in values. The things you think are important have very little meaning for the one you love. You’ll be in constant conflict until you’re able to allow for these contrasts. Carefully review your options.
You will have to let go of something dear. It could be a possession, idea or attitude. This painful experience will deplete your energy and cloud your outlook. Don’t hesitate to reach out to a supportive friend who empathises with you. Their comforting words and kind insights will help you heal. The results won’t happen overnight. Be gentle with yourself and expect to have a few meltdowns. Taking time off work, communing with nature and reading uplifting material will help.
Controversial opinions are distancing you from people who would usually support you. Be careful about what you post on social media sites or it will come back to haunt you. Although you resent having to keep silent about sensitive issues, it’s better to err on the side of diplomacy. Harsh words that sound truthful to you will cause tremendous pain to friends and family. If you want an outlet for powerful emotions, keep a private diary. Then you can say you want without fear of reprisal.
A financial loss will come as a shock. Money you lent to a friend will not be repaid. The sooner you come to grips with this unpleasant truth, the faster you will recover. Let this be a lesson about mixing friendship with finance. It rarely works. It’s time to reassess your social network. You’ve always been tremendously popular. Narrowing your circle of friends will serve you better. Only spend time with people who empower you in some way. Shake off the emotional vampires and economic leeches.
No matter how much you want to achieve a career goal; you will not be successful. Not everyone is convinced you are the right person for a high profile position. Instead of being bitter about the situation, take a few moments to recover from your disappointment. It will soon become obvious this job really isn’t meant for you. If you have outgrown your current role, think about launching your own business. Being your own boss will be a great way to exercise your leadership ability.
You feel like a social outcast. That’s because your ideas fly in the face of conventional wisdom. There are people around you who will take every opportunity to mock your contributions. Many visionaries have experienced the same fate. Take comfort in the fact you are in good company. It will take a long time before people realise your ideas are right on target. Until then, remember your sense of humour. Engage in solitary pleasures that allow you to forget the rest of the world.
It’s important to respect the rights of others, no matter how much you disagree with their position. Trying to sabotage the opposition will be disastrous. The last thing you need is to get embroiled in a legal battle because you lost control of your temper. If you’re constantly subjected to an oppressive situation, take a break. Stay with a friend who lives in a different city. Take some time off work. Stop attending stressful meetings. Do whatever you can to protect your heart while protecting your stakes.
