“I am fundamentally an optimist. Whether that comes from nature or nurture, I cannot say. Part of being optimistic is keeping one’s head pointed toward the sun, one’s feet moving forward. There were many dark moments when my faith in humanity was sorely tested, but I would not and could not give myself up to despair. That way lays defeat and death.”
Nelson Mandela, Long Walk to Freedom: Autobiography of Nelson Mandela
Today’s optimism is fraught with inflated expectations. The atmosphere is especially chaotic, lacking patience or clear guidelines. We may be inclined to focus on extenuating circumstances instead of cutting directly to the simple facts that are right in front of us. Complications only seem to cloud the issues we are trying to sort out. It is likely that ‘reason’ will eventually prevail, but our impatience could create particularly cumbersome stumbling blocks. Asking for more time to make any decisions is probably the only way to escape the confusion here.
THE WEEK AHEAD: There is a wealth of creativity and inspiration this week, fueled by the Venus-Neptune conjunction. However, the square from Mars may quickly inflate our expectations. We need some grounding if we are to have any hope of avoiding impatience and disappointment. Relationship difficulties may develop when we feel that we are being held back or don’t feel the kind of support the we’re hoping for. There is no lack of opinions, but opinions aren’t likely to hold or stand, due to the heightened placement of Neptune. The lack of clarity and certainty leads to suspicion. The strain on relationships draws much of our focus, especially early in the week. As we move through the week, the pressure seems to ease up significantly and we find some clear, tangible threads of insight that fuels inspiration and encourages sharing. We find more enthusiasm for learning and sharing our insights with others. Our optimism is grounded through foundation building activities. Independence gains more support and we begin to feel the spirit of adventure, fostering increased determination and persistence. As Venus moves into sextiles to both Pluto and Saturn, we recognize how important it is to find like-minded allies. With enough awareness, we will recognize that we are most vulnerable when we are isolated. We are in a time when new rules are being developed and new foundations are being laid. The confusion or suspicions that must deal with this week may push us further toward that feeling of isolation if we don’t recognize that we can only maintain our integrity by building collaborative alliances.
