Until recently, my relationship and interest with horoscopes was extremely surface level. Unwilling to let my life be influenced or narrated by something, that seemed to me, pretty far fetched. I’m not sure I believe in any greater force taking control of my life. I’m more confident in life’s randomness and my ability to react however I choose effective. But recently my friend brought to my attention a very intriguing app, “Co — Star.”
While I won’t put complete faith in what my horoscope says is “meant to be,” there is definitely a lot I can unfold into reality. True or false, these statements can be informative. New ways of thinking can always be beneficial, if done cautiously. Going after big life changes that could work out, while understanding the risks if they don’t, is something I consider brave. However, being prepared and accepting of re-evaluation and adjustment is vital. I believe in taking chances on myself, trusting myself. Following my truth, influenced by my own gatherings, not the universe’s. There must be balance between what’s comfortable and what’s exciting. What’s realistic and what’s risky. Where life leads and how we steer.
Something I recently read while diving deeper into the details of my “transits,” according to Co — Star, really stuck with me. “Perfect is the enemy of good.” I whole-heartedly agree with this statement. If the goal is perfection, there will inevitably be disappointment. Expectations are usually always the cause of unnecessary worry. So how do I piece together my truths compared to those given to me based on my time of birth?
“My feelings are facts.” There are moments of truth to be found within just being. I can trust in myself. Speak my truth, understand my truth. Adapt and influence toward the truth I seek. But, I won’t ignore my feelings. I nurture and accept the evidence of my emotions.
Horoscopes undoubtedly create overthinking. I vow to be protective over my thoughts. Stay true to who I am and what I want without getting carried away in what the “universe” wants for me. There is definitely something to be said for feeling validated. Whether your horoscope keeps you hopeful with wishful things to look forward to or provides comfort that those shit feelings aren’t without purpose, validation in things working out. Being okay. Reminders of the normalcy of our struggling.
Another message I followed while evaluating my horoscopes is the idea that not all aspects of my life will thrive together. While my creative side could be strong one day, bringing successes in my work-life, my romantic life could be lacking. I try to recognize the parts of myself and my life that feel strong when they do and take the focus away from whatever may be weaker in those times. Understanding there will always be pieces fitting easily, progressing and others put aside for later. When you work on a puzzle, you work on one section at a time.
If I left my life in the hands of the universe, I’d be giving up my ability to create growth and positivity for myself. However, I can come to my own conclusions from what is offered. Use new ideas as guidelines for self-reflection. Possible goals and hopes I haven’t thought of before. Imagination is my editor. No matter how or when I was brought into this world, the ability to transform my life into one I feel proud of is in my power. I’ll hear what the universe has to say and then make my own decisions. ;)
