You probably don't have to think hard to recall when a distraction or delay proved helpful. You may have formed a solid expectation regarding what you wanted to happen. However, you might have had to adapt to an unexpected development that, at first, you felt you could do without. But if, back then, you eventually felt glad about what occurred, you could experience something similarly pleasing now.
Pause to take honest stock of what you do with self-care and how much you take others' needs into account. It may be time to do what ticks essential boxes from your needs' point of view. When we look out for Number One, others in our worlds sometimes squawk. But if the universe believes you need to stop and take care of yourself, that's an instruction you shouldn't ignore.
A nudge you may receive to go a particular direction mustn't be seen as an unhelpful or forceful push. You might believe you have no choice but to accept this. Yet, you could overlook how doing so is in your best interests. The stronger nudge you receive, the more proactive you'll need to be with entering unfamiliar territory and adjusting to it. The sooner you go with this flow, the better, Aries.
The arrival of certain information could frustrate you. It might confirm a plan you thought was “all systems go” now needs reassessing or revising. But even if something feels like an unwelcome delay or obstacle, it's worth looking beyond the brief inconvenience. What might be a source of irritation now could be something you'll likely be glad about soon.
You reserve the right to introduce a change if you feel one's essential. This might involve a commitment or an arrangement with a history. But if you encounter resistance from someone, they might focus strongly on the present while you're more interested in the future. You could also have more reliable knowledge that supports your decision. So, if it feels right, stick with it.
Logic is unlikely to be as helpful as turning up the volume on your awesome intuition and imagination. Even if unusual ideas or visions appear out of the blue, your inner voice is well-trained to look for the nugget of truth or wisdom within them. You could be a finely-tuned radio to out-of-the-ordinary insights now. So, be intrigued by what's unusual or “outside the box.” That's the way to think.
Have you got anything to lose by straying from a particular beaten path, daring to be different or more experimental? There are far more pros than cons to thinking along such lines. You're supported with standing out from the crowd, letting unique qualities shine, or your “freak flag fly”! Others may do things their way, but you can put a unique spin on your actions. That's often what a great leader does.
You believe we tend to regret what we don't do more than what we do, don't you? An opportunity could hold more potential than you think. You might not be interested in exploring further what you'd prefer to give time to in the future when you might feel more inclined to do so. But try to strike now. You might not get a second chance and could kick yourself if an opportunity flies straight overhead.
To a baseball player poised with a bat waiting for a pitcher to do their thing, all that matters is the bat connecting with a ball. The faster it's thrown, the less effort is needed to whack it out of the park, too. But success depends on that bat and ball connecting in the right way at the right time. Similarly, momentum works on your behalf in some way. Stay alert for the right moment to take advantage of it!
Unfamiliar territory beckons and recent decisions and actions are the catalysts for where you head in some way now. Chances are, even if you move toward something unfamiliar, a blend of intrigue and reassurance will hopefully override any trepidation. You probably don't know at this stage how relieved you'll feel soon to leave something behind, too.
“I'm not sure, but I think this is the right way.” Those words can trigger a mental alarm or offer a hint of optimism. But if other routes have been explored with little or no success, adopting an open mind to an alternative can sometimes be the best - or most fortuitous - option! So, be willing to see where straying from a particular beaten path takes you.
Predictability and a lack of openmindedness could cause you to set rigid expectations. So, trust that it's in your best interests to be receptive to unusual options. Creating an inflexible checklist of what you want, need or expect could leave you feeling more disappointed than inspired. Be more imaginative and focus on the pros of daring to be - or do - something different!
