On Wednesday, October 5th, Venus and Makemake approach a full conjunction behind the Sun under Libra in the 1st House of Self. Venus governs not only love but also finances and self-esteem. Makemake, on the other hand, governs activism and environmental connection. This starry alignment indicates a confrontation between resources and values and, in turn, self-worth.
What might that look like for your sign today?
Double-checking that your life path aligns with your values has multiple benefits. For example, you can find and correct habits that deviate from your moral compass. And you can also find those worth keeping around (and, more importantly, not forgoing).
With a schedule as busy as yours, you must take the time to arrange your priorities appropriately. That includes those that benefit only you—your ability to uphold your other obligations rests on your overall well-being.
If you feel like you’re not getting anywhere in a conversation, try a different communication tactic. You wouldn’t try going through the same locked door more than once, would you? Look for another entrance, Gemini.
Don’t underestimate the value of keeping things in your life that bring you joy. If they are contributing to a more positive mental state and are healthy outlets, then they’re worth making time for. You are worth making time for.
While it can slip into vanity if left unchecked, your pride manifests as self-advocacy, too. Not only do you have no problem standing up for yourself. But you also know how to teach others to do the same—like right now.
Something embedded deep in your subconscious is preventing you from getting off this plateau. Moving forward with it doesn’t appear to be an option. Rather than exhausting yourself trying, start looking for what it is.
Take some time by yourself before approaching the obstacle before you. While it might seem tempting to rush into things and get them over with, this dilemma requires a little more delicate care. Don’t underestimate the power of an extra day or two.
The internal wounds we carry from childhood have the power to make or break us. On the one hand, it can be a reason to become guarded and cold. On the other hand, we can use it as inspiration to be even more compassionate.
Because you usually act on principles, not feelings, it can be disarming when you find yourself reacting subconsciously to your emotions. Still, these reactions are worth listening to—maybe you’re not as okay with this situation as you thought.
Our home lives can be the most difficult to change. Our preferences, habits, and comfort zones encourage us to keep the same routine because it’s familiar. But that doesn’t make it the most beneficial or productive.
Be cautious of assuming other people can read your mind or anticipate your intentions. Aloofness does little in terms of communicating your feelings. If you have something on your mind, then say it. Don’t string them along in silence.
Just because it feels like you’re on a plateau doesn’t mean you’re doomed to be stuck here forever. Sometimes, life takes on the appearance of stagnancy when, in actuality, great changes are happening underneath the surface.
