Scorpio Horoscope for week of April 2, 2009 c/o Freewill Astrology
The three tasks I think you should work on in the coming week are among the hardest any human being can attempt. Luckily, you now have an unusually strong aptitude for them, and are likely to receive unexpected assistance if you're brave enough to plunge ahead. Here they are. 1. Interrupt and overthrow negative trains of thought right in the middle of their flow through your brain. 2. Negotiate partial solutions to complex problems. In other words, do the half-right thing when it's impossible to do the totally right thing. 3. Understand that in order to graduate from a certain batch of weird karma that has persisted, you must completely accept the situation as it is, acknowledge your role in precipitating and prolonging it, and feel gratitude for all that it has taught you.
Freakishly accurate? Don't mind if I do.
This applies so well to the three main aspects of my life that are perplexing me and/or requiring a lot of energy right now: health, work, and relationships/friendships. I could use a little blind hope, so okay horoscope, I'll take your challenge!
Number 1 Work in progress (ongoing). Especially when it comes to interacting with people, especially new people, need to keep working on not assuming the worst.
Number 2 is extremely exciting for me, as being a bit of a perfectionist and hard on myself, I could totally handle some half/partial solutions when I don't feel like I know how to do the whole, or haven't been able to. This particularly relates to work, which as much as I love it, has been tiring because of having this recurring bronchitis on top of my usual stuff. But I know I'm always pushing myself to do everything at my regular level just because I hold myself to those standards, when really perhaps I should be focusing on doing what needs to be done and then taking more care of myself.
Number 3 is interesting, because I feel like I really have been having some "weird karma" affect me the past while, and it's been lingering, and I haven't been able to completely shake it. But it's true, I haven't accepted all the various situations. I'm a problem solver, and I tend to always believe there is some way to resolve things. But maybe that's the difficult lesson that I'm meant to learn: that you can't win 'em all, so you just have to embrace the crap with the good (and what ever role you had in causing it), and really accept it and then learn from it. So alright, crap, I give in. I admit defeat, and I own up to the myriad ways I am responsible for what's been going on.
I'm going to be wholehearted (as per previous post) about surrendering myself to the fact that I still do think negatively about myself a lot, that I don't have to do everything 100% right all the time, and that I'm really not healthy right now and that I can't do everything all the time, and by continuing to push myself, I'm probably not helping myself get better any faster.
Whatever I have to do to feel better (physically and mentally), that's what I'm going to do, cause gosh darnit, I could really stand for my life to be a little more normal (read: fun and active) again sooner than later.
