Because of your expanded self-awareness you realize you can actually do a better – and more fulfilling – job. Your hopes and desires for the future, most likely concerning your professional ambitions, may seem too idealistic to you tonight, and you could fear the worst. Don’t give in to negative thinking; pessimism will get you nowhere.
Aquarius: If there are any underlying problems in an important personal relationship, they will surface in a big way today.

Aries: You may experience disappointment about a creative project that is not proceeding as smoothly as you had hoped it would this morning.
