The solitary bright star far to Mars’ lower left is Fomalhaut. Good things are ahead. People say you are one of the best. You are that dependable person that everyone needs in their lives. When you say you are going to do something or be somewhere, you do it! People can count on you to stick to your promises. Since you’re so in tune with your feelings, you can also pick up on the feelings of those you love. When your friends say they’re okay, you can see through that, and often end up saying, “Please, really, tell me what’s wrong. You know you can trust me.” You are always giving, and people expect that of you. Start valuing your time by portioning out your calendar evenly between your personal life, social life, and work life. Going forward, keep any one area from overwhelming the rest of your calendar. And if you need more personal time to veg out and do nothing, don’t be afraid to take it. Often, when you are busy taking care of everyone else, you forget to be kind to yourself. This can lead to your basic needs not being met, and spiral into depression and burn-out. Just a few hours once a week alone, away from all hustle and bustle of lives and responsibilities, can change your entire week. You will start seeing the world with a better perspective. The feeling of spending some quiet time with yourself is a perfect way to remember who you are, catch your breath, and recharge.
