Anything you’ve avoided dealing with is likely to resurface in a very unusual way today, so you might have to confront a harsh reality you weren’t quite ready to face. Any fights with family members or lovers could be volatile this morning, so do your best to avoid having any serious discussions that could escalate.
There is a tricky balance to connecting with others without things getting too serious, so try to keep it light! Today’s energy pushes us to contemplate and assess our feelings and brings equal desires to want to be alone and want to share intimacy.
If you choose to be alone, you could be doing yourself a great disservice, to be quite honest, because this is a time to share affection with those you’re close to. It isn’t a great day for foolish encounters with strangers, because they’re likely to leave you feeling sad and alone. If you take care to satisfy the needs of your partner and behave selflessly, this can be a rewarding time for you.

Bobcat Spirit tells you this is not a time to reveal your deepest most cherished dreams and desires to others but rather a time to be quiet and gentle with yourself as truths begin to emerge in your awareness. Self-protection is called for, so be discerning, selective, and even secretive, revealing no more than is necessary.
People have a way of imposing their opinions on you, so pay attention to whom you surround yourself with at this time. Be watchful and check your own motives as well as those of others as you keep your secrets to yourself for now rather than expose them to those who may potentially misunderstand your intentions or may not be supportive. Let your logical mind take a rest as you start to perceive the energy of your environment.
Bobcat Spirit wants you to be stealthy and wise, and keep your own counsel. Let yourself be a mystery yet to be revealed.
