Aries Horoscope for Friday, August 19, 2022
If you have a valid point, don`t back down. Too many people will try to bully you into doing what they`re doing or thinking what they`re thinking, but there`s really no reason for you to conform to the masses. Perseverance is the keyword of the day, and you have enough determination to stick to your story no matter who you`re up against. Of course, if you can come up with verified facts, detailed charts and impressive-looking graphs to back up what you`re saying, all the better.
The profits are yours for the taking, and this isn`t the time to get all humble. You deserve your share of the pie and maybe even more if you did more than your fair share of the work -- so don`t be embarrassed about stepping up and claiming the credit, the monetary reward or whatever the powers that be are dishing out. This is your moment in the Sun, so enjoy it while it lasts. Sunglasses aren`t required, but they might add to your `celebrity` look.
Exactly what part of this don`t you understand? If there`s even one tiny little detail that you are having a hard time comprehending, raise your hand and ask as many questions as you need to in order to wrap your brain around this difficult concept. You may not have the best teacher, but by asking the right questions, you really can figure out what you need to know to do your job. It might be a good idea to compare notes with everyone else just in case you wrote something down incorrectly.
Everyone else is off exploring new places, but you would much rather spend time in familiar surroundings. You can find plenty to do close to home -- or better yet, getting to stay at home all day would be your ultimate luxury. It`s not that you aren`t up for a good adventure some of the time as well, but right now you find comfort in the things that you see every day. Spend as much time with family as possible -- even if you don`t live with them, they will still remind you of comforting times.
If there`s one thing you can`t stand right now, it`s a showoff. Sure, you`ve spent a good amount of your time in the spotlight, but for some reason you can`t stand to see someone else gloating about their accomplishments. It isn`t exactly jealousy that`s making you feel this way, but you can`t really put your finger on the cause of these bad feelings either. The best thing to do is remove yourself from the vicinity so that you don`t say something you`ll regret at a later date.
If you don`t know where to turn for advice, look inside yourself for the answers. You have a lot more inner knowledge than you realize, and you may very well have all the answers to your problems mulling around in your brain as you read this. Use some meditation techniques or sit down with a blank piece of paper and begin writing about the first thing that pops into your head. Before you know it, you`ll feel at peace and by the end of the day you`ll wonder what all the worry was about in the first place.
Show your gratitude for someone who has done something nice for you in the past. It can be simple as sending a thank-you email to a friend who`s always been there for you or writing a letter to an aunt, uncle or grandparent who gave you a nice gift, but whatever it`s for, make sure that your words of thanks come from the heart. You may not think that doing little things like this make a difference, but when all is said and done, everyone likes to know that they are loved and appreciated.
Can you feel the tension in the air? There`s no denying that there is a definite friction between you and a friend, coworker or family member, but you might not have the slightest idea how it came to be there. Are you overlooking something that you might have said or done to set them on edge? Your quick wit and off-the-cuff comments don`t always go over well with the people in your life, so before you claim that it isn`t your fault, think very carefully about what you might have said in the past.
Even if you don`t agree with someone 100 percent of the time, what`s the harm in pretending that you do? You can save a lot of time by just agreeing with people today, and with all that you have to do, it`s definitely in your best interest to save time wherever you can. Resist the urge to be too condescending, however -- some of the touchier people in your life will be able to tell that you`re just humoring them; the conversation that follows their discovery will take way more time than it`s worth!
You have one thing that no one can take away from you and that`s integrity. Stand up for what you believe in and don`t let anyone sway your decision. Even if you`re the only one in the whole crowd who is willing to stand up for all that is good and true, you still have to have faith that you`ll be able to change their minds, not vice versa. All it takes is one person to make a difference -- do you have the strength and determination to be that person? The Universe says yes.
There`s something strange going on here and you couldn`t be happier. Your friends and relatives might stray away from the unexplained, but you can`t wait to roll up your sleeves and bury yourself deeper into the mystery. You may not be able to come up with an explanation that makes any sense, but that`s not really what you`re doing this for. You want to be able to say you were here when this amazing thing happened, and if you keep an open mind, you`ll enjoy it even more.
Create something beautiful for yourself or to give to someone else. You have a creative steak running through you at the moment, and even if you aren`t usually the creative type, you should be able to make something really wonderful with very little effort. Drawing, sculpting, cooking and writing are all disciplines you`re capable of dabbling in, but don`t feel like you have to stick with anything structured. The world is one big, blank canvas for you to work with, and you certainly aren`t required to follow any rules.
