Aquarius is a fixed air sign, which means it’s about the ways ideas remain constant. Thoughts and people are powerful at this time. This is an opportunity to link and build, at least online.
If people came with warning labels, yours would say something like “Danger. Do not test me!” Heaven help anyone who decides that it might be fun to see just how far you can be verbally pushed, because right about now it won’t be very far at all. Of course, as fiery as you are, this situation isn’t all that rare, so the next best thing would be to have a T-shirt made up for occasions such as this.
Making a new friend isn’t easy for you, especially now. You’re feeling even more secretive lately, so if you do decide to let someone in on what you’re feeling and how you’ve arrived at your decision, they’d better understand just how special that makes them. Then again, if they don’t, would you have let them this close to start with?
If anyone knows how wonderful it is to have entertaining friends, it’s you. You’ve spent a whole lot of time cultivating such a crew, and you don’t take their affection lightly. You also don’t invite someone into that circle without considering how their company will add to it or how existing members will take to them. Now that you’re ready to open the books, be sure someone lets this fortunate newcomer know just how special the invitation really is.
You’ve always had a great relationship with your superiors. In fact, they often treat you as if you’re a peer, and most times you feel as if you’re part of a family. That’s exactly how you’ll feel now when the higher-ups come to you for advice. If tongues start to wag, don’t be too stressed about it. Everyone needs someone else to talk about.
When you’re happy, everyone’s happy. Your fiery nature just won’t allow anyone to be depressed in your immediate vicinity, not if you can do anything about it. At the moment, you’re feeling pretty darned fine, which means you can and will do your very best to make everyone around you as happy as possible. Stop short of interfering with the celebration of that well-deserved streak of luck you’re currently enjoying.
If you’re not sure about how to handle a certain situation that’s far too delicate for prime time, don’t mention it to anyone yet. You know as well as they do that there are still issues to be resolved, and until then, keeping quiet is best. You’re in change and you know it too. Call a meeting if you must, just to be sure that everyone is on the same page.
Relationships are always your number one priority, but at the moment that’s going to go double. Your lucky other half, or prospective other half, will enjoy all kinds of wonderful attention, all aimed at ensuring that they know not only how deeply you care but also that those feelings aren’t going anywhere. It’s a given that your feelings will be returned, but it might be nice to have that conversation anyway.
If anyone can make good plans and see them through to the end without even thinking about aborting the mission, it’s definitely you. You’re a planner and a plotter, equal parts detective and analyst. You’ve got a plan going now that’s just about perfect from beginning to end, so much so that you’ll be confident about sharing it with anyone. It involves helping a loved one out of a tough spot. Don’t lose sight of your own needs in the process.
Generosity and excess make a dangerous pair of qualities to tote around, and it takes a special kind of person to do it. Those are your burdens. For the most part, you’re up for the challenge and happy about it. Still, you should ensure that everyone you’re so kind to appreciates what you’re doing and that they’re not taking you for granted. You should also take a little time to spoil yourself simply because it’s time.
You’ve never been shy, no matter what the subject or where you happen to be when it’s broached. You won’t be shy now, but if you start to feel a bit of it coming on, remind yourself that if anyone has the right to be confident, it’s you, especially since you’ve been so diligent and hardworking for so long. Relax. Let the rest of the world worry about your feelings for a change.
If you’re at all worried that you might say or do something to offend someone, especially if you’re pretty sure about who it is and what the situation might be, take someone along for the ride who’s equipped to mediate in situations such as this. You know the person to ask because you’ve probably had to call on them in the past for just such a reason. And remember that it’s not you they’ll be watching out for.
You’re not in the mood to shop at the moment, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t something out there that will appeal to you so much that you won’t go through hell or high water to have it delivered to your door within 24 hours. If you’re not sure you can afford it, call the one person you know who’ll talk you out of it without making you feel like you’ve cheated yourself.
