The Waxing Gibbous Moon is in Capricorn, visible at 79% and Venus brightens but continues to sink, causing frustration. Don’t feel you have to comment on everything, leave some things unspoken. We all have our own opinions on different subjects. Others may not always agree with us, and we will not always agree with them. Sometimes, silence is our best response. If someone says something offensive, simply respond by not saying anything for a few seconds and then walk away. This may help the person get the hint. Often, people make a comment with the intent of being helpful or funny without realizing they’ve hurt another person. Don’t let it get to you. It’s important of course, not to be arrogant or derisive, but if you feel you have something constructive to offer to the conversation, go right ahead! Everyone has a different way of looking at things and that difference must be respected. Always try to look at the brighter side of things and refrain from criticism and voicing displeasure. There will be situations and people that are less than ideal in our minds, but it does no good to constantly criticize because it only reinforces negativity. Possessing the ability to offer genuine praise when it is deserved makes the other person feel great about themselves. It exhibits the ability to see goodness in others and makes others want to be around us more.
