Daily horoscope (11 July 2018)
You’re tireless today. Your energy comes in slow and steady, enabling you to focus on the task before you. It’s a great time to get something tedious but important accomplished, because you have a higher tolerance than usual for monotony. You might even find the rhythm of following a certain procedure or routine to be comforting, or even enjoyable. At the very least, you’ll be glad you applied yourself once you’ve finished!
Idealism and flights of fancy aren’t favored today. The good news is, it’s easy for you to keep a levelheaded perspective. The current influence helps you focus naturally on the real world — the sights, sounds, flavors, relationships and issues right in front of you. And doesn’t it feel good to be so grounded in the here and now? It’s probably a welcome break for you, since you tend to dwell in a more emotional realm.
Your sensory perceptions are heightened today. The current cosmic influence is highly sensual in nature. You might notice that your morning coffee is particularly fragrant, or a hug from a loved one fills your heart with warmth. Enjoy this sense of heightened appreciation for the physical world. Usually you move so quickly that you forget to stop and smell the roses. Now, you can slow down and do just that!
You may notice today that you feel more grounded than usual. There’s a balanced energy at work that promotes common sense. Instead of getting caught up in silly drama or unnecessary details, you’ll simply stick to what’s most important: the task at hand, and the end result. Your mind feels calmer when you’re in this mood, so take advantage of it while it lasts. It can help you get a lot accomplished, if you focus.
Life takes on a warm, rosy glow today, even if it’s grim outside. Your connections with friends and loved ones are especially affectionate. Revel in those relationships; they’re your sustenance, the soul-food that keeps you going through rough times. On that note, it’s a great day to extend your generosity toward someone who could use a hand. Invite someone into your home or your heart, or lend them your warmth and your strength.
You’re in your element today, which helps you feel especially emotionally balanced. The decisions you’re making are sensible, because they’re firmly grounded in reality. This is the certainty of maturity, and it’s a good thing to have on your side! Your friends and loved ones who aren’t so steady probably rely on you for your dependable, down-to-earth nature. Be ready to act as the gentle voice of reason.
A wonderful sense of being settled, body and mind, is available today, if you tap into it. This could be as simple and deliberate as taking a few moments to sit still in a quiet room, close your eyes, and focus on your body. Feel the places where you hold your tension, and let them ease. Feel the center of your power, which is both physical and emotional in nature. Let yourself become integrated.
Keep yourself grounded in reality today. Wandering into the realm of ‘I wonder’ might be a lot of fun, and there’s certainly a creative energy at work that prompts that type of imagining. But you probably have a lot to accomplish now, and a focused approach is the way to work through it. Your time is better used on real-world problems and solutions. Translate any creativity into concrete terms.
Today, you’re more aware than usual of living in your body. So often, you get caught up in thinking about everything you have to accomplish by the end of the day. Now, let yourself be a creature of physical pleasures. When you’re eating a meal, slow down and really appreciate the flavors. When you’re walking from your car to your office, notice the warmth of the sun on your face. Take pleasure in these small, important things.
Your physical senses are highly attuned today to the natural or material world. If you’re a gardener, spend some time with your hands in the dirt. You might also notice certain foods or textures are especially pleasurable. In fact, if you’re in the market for new furnishings or clothing, odds are good you’ll spring for whatever feels best under your fingertips. That’s just the sort of tactile perception that drives you under the current influence.
You’re as steady as an old oak tree; that’s just your nature. Today, that dependable, rocklike side of you is highlighted. If you’re in a situation that requires great maturity, you’ll rise to the challenge with little trouble. If a friend needs your supportive influence, you’ll offer it willingly. In fact, you can project an aura of security without even trying. Just your presence alone makes people feel very safe.
You have great stamina today, both physically and mentally. Instead of coming in bursts, your energy is steady. Put this staying power to good use, whether in an endurance-based workout or in a project at home or the office. You can put in long hours without feeling the ill effects that might normally make you knock off early. If you’re working on something business-related, your employer should be pleased with your diligence.
