You're out of place somehow. You're an athlete playing the wrong sport or an artist working in the wrong medium. And just as you realize this, your visibility factor peaks the meter. Others are finally noticing you, but you're afraid that it's publicity for the wrong reason. Okay, that's life. You tried and you didn't succeed this time. What else can you do? If there's a lesson to learn, it's that context is everything. If you were in the right place at the right moment, they'd be hailing you as some kind of hero or genius. It's worth a shot next time.
When you reduce everything to the simplest formula, it's the intangibles that matter most. You like your comforts and treasures as much as the next person, but material gain is less important than it used to be. Each step of your journey convinces you that you're on the right path. It seems that all you ever needed was honesty and the vision to use it. Before you turn into a holy person, remember that there's still a place for earthly pleasures in your life. When pursuing such things, think of it as satisfying a hunger instead of fulfilling a wish.
You had your fun. Now you need to move on. It's time to get your project in gear. Yes, real work is still required. The things that just happened here were gifts from the Stars, not everyday manifestations of your natural state. You've been around long enough to see how nobody has that kind of luck all the time -- it would be exhausting. At least you're refreshed instead of depleted. You have only good feelings about what you're doing and the people with whom you're doing it. As long as you're ready to spend prep time in the kitchen, the rest will be a piece of cake.
You put the finishing touches on your contract with yourself. This is a major document in your life. Be ready for questions. Not that many people will understand your goals at first. They don't have to get on board as long as they agree to get out of your way. The full happiness that you avoided for so long is coming to the surface. Good feelings break down the final barrier of your reserve. Now you have no choice but to own who you are and what you've made. Rejoin a group that's been missing you.
Go beyond the usual. Maybe this means sprinting across the fields of excellence or navigating the alleys of the bizarre. Look back from time to time and get your bearings. Being on the outside has its advantages. You're the first one to catch a mistake. You're also the only one who can do anything about it. Critical errors and meaningless glitches are problems to be solved, no matter what the implications. Whatever these things mean to someone else, they represent a personal victory for you. You'll explain it all if you ever get the chance.
Doing things your way sets you apart from the crowd. It's not that you have a problem with people: It's just that you want to get it done right and on your own terms. Maybe you never started out to be a trailblazing trendsetter, but that's where this road is leading you. You're free to come in from the cold at any time. Taking everything so personally was never the best strategy for you. But now that you're having these feelings, wait until someone asks before you disclose them. You want to be sure that you have a receptive audience.
Everything goes well until you begin to realize that you're operating in a different dimension. Reality is like that. Your head may be firmly attached to your shoulders, but it can still get stuck in the sand. Don't let your weak spot grow into a blind spot. You're perfectly able to see whatever you want to see. Right now you can tell that lowering your defenses would be an open invitation for someone waiting to take advantage. Be strong and on task. Readjusting your paradigm isn't so hard when your new goals are so similar to the old ones.
Bold statements and daring deeds appeal to you. The life that you're living could use a nice adrenaline boost. Throw yourself into the path of something wonderful. Enrich yourself by going out on a shaky limb. After all, what's a little pain when you can trade it for so much gain? Some people shake their heads and call you crazy, but this is you being as sane as you get. The younger you are, the greater your sense of discovery. Veterans might take it at a less intense pace, but they still welcome a familiar feeling.
You're a powerhouse. You're a single-handed wrecking crew. Okay, maybe these labels are a bit extreme for what you're doing, but you're determined to make some headway. Sooner or later you'll wear down the resistance to what you know is such a good idea. You want others to appreciate how much you're putting into this. That might be asking too much, even for you. Everyone has different priorities and this one may not be high on too many lists. You could be disappointed if you're expecting an award. A simple recognition will have to do.
It's a little too quiet around here. There ought to be laughter, birdsong, machine noises or some familiar element that's missing from this soundscape. Even if it's business as usual in your own little sphere, you don't have to go very far outside to see what's off kilter. When fixing the problem is beyond your knowledge, you may have to think fast. Save yourself and anyone else you convince to come with you. You know of a better place to go. You'll be in your element where everything works the right way, including common sense.
You're ready for the fun to start, but no such luck. It's a long way between here and there. Trends shift into a higher gear and you wish there was time to ride them. This isn't a movement that you can predict from the comfort of your regular life, either. Everything seems to be going in opposite directions from yesterday. It's like nothing you ever witnessed before. The outcome is uncertain. Find the middle ground in all of this absurdity. Maybe that falls outside of your preferred job description, but you'll soon discover yourself in the seat of power.
Hold on there! You just overshot your destination. You need to backtrack and hunt for the landmarks that you missed while you were daydreaming. Everything looks different when you're coming at it from the opposite side. Before you get lost again, ask yourself why it happened the first time. Maybe you're seeking mental refuge from something that you should be handling more attentively. Gauge your response before diving in with a vengeance. A big reaction to the problem could be just as harmful as not reacting at all. When the right solution comes along, you'll know it.
