It's true -- you just can't go home again. Sure, moving home or back to where you came from is always a legitimate option to choose, but you can't confuse a geographic return with an emotional return. If you are looking for a sense of security and familiarity, you can't recreate it -- but you can create it. Time and patience are all it takes to build your own new hometown right where you are now. Instant relationships and instant families do not exist. Give this thing time.
Make plans for the future. Time is definitely on your side today, so use it wisely. Your romantic relationship is getting stronger, and today the two of you will finally have all the time you need to have that conversation you both have been waiting to have. Be honest and trust them with your feelings -- the good, the bad, and the vulnerable. This is an important opportunity to get everything out on the table and determine what you are dealing with.
Your finances are you own business, and no one else's, no matter what their relationship to you. So if you're feeling tight with money (or loose with money), then you have every right to act accordingly. Avoid the advice you're being given on how to save more or spend more wisely. Only you truly understand where you're comfortable trimming costs and where you're comfortable splurging. You sacrifice what you're willing to sacrifice.
After a busy spell and lots of new beginnings, your life is entering a period of many terminations. The good news is that nothing is going to be over that doesn't need to be over. The people who are good for you and represent a positive force in your life aren't going anywhere! Transitional periods like this can be difficult, but you are blessed with an emotional intelligence that helps you see that things happen for a reason in life. This will make you stronger -- for sure.
Take the more difficult route today -- sure, it could tax your energy to the maximum limit, but in the end it will reward you with a great pride that will feed your ego in a profound and powerful way. Besides, coasting through life is not for you -- you need and relish a unique challenge, and you might be given a very captivating one today. You are learning (slowly but surely) to appreciate the fact that when a goal is too easy to attain, it is not as fulfilling as a hard-won victory.
You can help other people without being too critical today, but you will have to be honest about what you think. Right now, there is no point in sharing your thought unless you share all of them: the good and the bad, the objective and the subjective, the helpful and the pointless. Being critical is an art form, but it is one at which you excel. Due to your healthy balance between diplomacy and compassion, you always know just what to say. Don't worry.
The best approach for ticking off all the items on your ever-growing to-do list today is a personal one. As much as possible, you should do your business on a one-on-one basis. This will help you have more fun during the course of the day and remind you that people are essentially good. So turn off your computer and hit the road -- going shopping, making reservations, even paying your bills, are all things you should do face to face with someone else.
Try to align yourself with an intellectual person today -- while their smarts might intimidate you a little bit, their insight will inspire you to new levels of greatness. They can help you prevail in any challenging situation, and give you confidence in an area that has always mystified you. Of course, it could be a big challenge to find someone who is smarter than you, but if you keep an open mind about what it means to be smart, you'll find them soon.
Several dramas will be whirling around you today, but you can handle them... and who knows? You might even enjoy them, since they involve some of your favorite people. The one thing you should remember is to stay as detached, calm and flexible as possible -- if you can bend like a willow, you will be able to give nervous folks the extra space or time they need. The more emotional distance you can create, the more enjoyable your day will be.
A big change is coming that will affect your home life and shift things around in a slightly confusing way. But don't worry -- in the end, these changes will improve things dramatically. The only tricky part is that it's not a change you can make happen -- you just have to be patient and wait for it! While you're waiting, indulge in some fresh thinking about rearranging furniture, considering a new paint color, or researching the purchase of a major appliance.
Getting a little bit more exercise into your life is a lot easier than you think, so investigate one or two ways to do just that today. Just parking at the far end of the parking lot will have impact. Sooner than later, you should start upping your level of physical exertion. It's good for your body, and it's good for your emotions. Getting your heart pumping helps create positive endorphins that keep you smiling -- not to mention it can help you shave some inches off your body.
An upcoming family obligation might seem like it will be a tedious experience, but you should keep an open mind. Once you get into it, you'll find more than a few new entertaining angles. People you thought you knew inside and out have a few new tricks up their sleeve, and they're going to let you see a whole new side of them. Take a cue from these folks and get ready to let down a few of your own walls. You have some new stuff to show them, too!
