Every life has its times of challenge. But there are also moments of victory, and judging by the current planetary set up thats exactly what you should be experiencing now. You worked hard to get where you are and have earned it. Savour the acknowledgement of others and your own sense of achievement. It would be easy to interpret the speed with which others seized on the opportunities triggered by this weeks eclipse as disloyalty on their part. Actually, they only spotted their potential before you did. Now that the facts are clearer you too will soon be making some changes. Only days ago you were fretting about obstacles that have prevented you taking certain plans to the next stage, and wondering how you could overcome them. Now things are moving so quickly, youre concerned about keeping up with developments. While youre still worrying, these are of a kind you dont object to. The best way to approach the changes swirling through your life, and those of close family and friends, is to regard whats taking place as an adventure. While this may mean youll be facing the unexpected and sometimes even surprising developments, you wont regret a moment of it. Saying yes first and thinking about what youre getting involved in later might seem very unwise. Ordinarily it would be. But with Jupiter meeting the planet of transformation, Neptune, in Aquarius, these arent ordinary times. On the contrary, youll remember this as one of the years most significant turning points. Forget worries about others opinions of your plans. Those who are happy whatever you do will support you. Those who always see something to criticise will also find something to dwell on, however small it is, that allows them to view things from the most negative angle possible. Nobody has convinced you that change for changes sake is wise. However, by the time Julys second eclipse, on the 22nd of the month, has taken place youll be viewing even disruptive events in a more positive light. Try to approach developments with a certain amount of optimism. As much as you enjoy learning about fascinating new ideas, people and places, actually exploring them is another matter. However, events are so compelling you cant resist taking things to the next stage. Thats wise, since what comes to light will reveal opportunities that could soon, quite simply, transform your life. Others are complaining about how changes in your life are leading to disruption in theirs. Youre even thinking about calling off the arrangements youre planning. Dont. The individuals in question would complain about changes of any kind. They always have, and they always will. Having invested a lot of time, thought and passion in certain plans, youre shocked and baffled at how easily others are discussing changes, if not abandoning them entirely. This has nothing to do with their regard for what youve done. With situations moving at such a swift pace, things simply cant remain as they were. Youre the first to express an interest in meeting intriguing people or exploring new ideas. Recently, however, restrictive situations have prevented you from doing that. Finally, now, most of these have been dealt with. This isnt just a relief, it means you can focus on recent developments and make up for lost time.
