You are going through a period of stagnation in your life. You are having a hard time coping with the obstacles you have encountered. You feel like your efforts are going to waste – but this is not true. This period is a test for you; it is meant to motivate you to fight even harder for your dreams! Don’t give up; you are one step away from achieving your goals, so you have to keep trying. You will be intimidated by the changes you will be faced with, but the developments that are about to take place in your life will teach you a very important lesson: No pain, no gain.
The Fool card was drawn from the love tarot deck today. The Fool suggests spontaneity, laughter, and playfulness. Let your curiosity lead you off the beaten path. Release old pain to make room for fresh happiness. Open yourself up to new discoveries. Flirt with the attractive stranger who smiles at you in the coffee shop. You might find yourself attracted to someone younger, or very lighthearted. Enjoy the experience without trying to analyze it. Live in the moment. The Fool’s appearance often signals a time when you and your lover experience freedom from responsibilities. You feel younger and lighter as you engage playfully with each other. This is a great time to take a day trip or brief vacation together. Try new activities which attract both of you—even if they’re a little bit risky or silly. Take a rock-climbing or salsa dancing class together.
You are keeping your expenses in check and weighing the pros and cons of every situation in order to remain in control of your life. You have adopted a modest attitude and have focused your attention on your career in order to progress. Your fears and insecurities are preventing you from indulging your impulses and repeating past mistakes. Your self-restraint will eventually prove very beneficial for you. Your sacrifices and efforts will be rewarded – both materially and morally. Stay focused on your goals; if you show temperance and take nothing for granted, it will all pay off in the end.
The planetary energy gives your powers of observation a boost, while allowing you to notice with compassion what needs help. Have you been neglecting your exercise routine or diet lately? Has your self-image suffered from lack of self-care? You will notice things about yourself today, but the most important thing you can do is take action! There may be something symbolic you can do – such as buying a yoga mat or scheduling a massage- to commit to giving yourself greater care.
