“You strive to please others, to fit in, and feel accepted. In spite of that, you still don’t feel accepted, and not because others don’t accept you, but because you haven’t accepted yourself as you are.”
Dragos Bratasanu, The Pursuit of Dreams: Claim Your Power, Follow Your Heart, and Fulfill Your Destiny
The trend of strong self-confidence continues today and keeps us from going out of our way to please someone else, which never serves us well. There’s is a bit of a struggle between wanting to please ourselves first and giving in to pleasing others. Moon in Libra is in its first-quarter phase when we get a much clearer sense of what we want, need, and of the direction we need to move toward next. Once we’ve decided that pleasing others is counterintuitive and unhealthy, we are free to move on.
We’re asked to stick to the rules and guidelines set forth, but ditching the need to please others returns our power to control our destiny through free will. Consider the idea of pleasing others like a thick rope binding us in place. We earn our freedom when we understand that we are the ones who have bound us…no one else.
Fiery Sun in Leo stimulates plans and good luck (for those of you who believe in luck). Be careful to consider the bigger picture as you may tend to overfill your plate and find yourself struck by indecision. You’ll be able to strip away the unnecessary this afternoon when Moon sextiles no-nonsense Saturn.
Tonight, there’s a lot to think about when Moon trines dreamy Neptune. Some of these thoughts and ideas are a trip down memory lane as the Moon sextiles Pluto. You’ll uncover a pleasant but forgotten bit of information that results in a serendipitous electrical jolt to your night. You discover something that allows you to prevent catastrophe. Do what needs to be done.
