Cosmic Grace for Everyday Heroes
The classic heroic model is to swoop in at the moment of peril and save the day. What is the day being saved? The ordinary day, mostly -- the one filled with work, casual interactions, errands and the like. The trine of Mercury and Saturn points out that small things done with great consistency, kindness and attention are their own kind of heroism.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Imagine your ideal best friend -- the one who gets you, laughs at your jokes, brings out your best and sees you as beautiful no matter what. Now be that person. That's the amount of self-attention that's appropriate.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Bring something useful to do so you're not waiting around on that person who seems to get some sort of charge or emotional reassurance from making other people wait around for them.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You are loved. Unfortunately, the evidence of this is on the subtle side today. So, you'll have to first believe you are loved in order to prime your eyes to spot love's proof.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You're stretching yourself right now, giving a bit more and differently than you're used to. In fact, you may feel like you really don't know how you're going to keep on delivering like this, but you'll find a way.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The thing that gets tedious is seeing, hearing and generally experiencing what you already know all too well. Sameness can be an irritant, even if it's a pleasant sameness. For your sake and everyone else's, change it up.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You sense the truth before you feel like you want to know it. You could push further into the issue, but what would be the point? That's a real question. List the pros and cons.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). When they say, "These are the good old days," what they mean that we'll eventually wax nostalgic about the very routines that seem a little tiresome right about now. Does knowing this help you appreciate today better?
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Most people would rather do what everyone else is doing than risk being called "weird." You'll do what everyone else is doing only after you've decided it's the best way.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Give compliments to those who deserve them and those who don't. The ones who deserve them will like the recognition. The ones who don't will try to grow into the praise.
