Today's horoscopes - 17 Jan 2017
by Russell Grant
Professional communications will be confused. After you think you've been promised something, someone will deny they ever made such an agreement. This makes you angry. When you give your word, you move heaven and earth to deliver the goods. Now you realise you cannot trust the person in charge. Think carefully about your next move. Don't burn any bridges just yet. You've worked hard to get to this point. Use your accomplishments to vault you to a higher level.
Your ideas may be too general to generate enthusiasm. If you want to sell a product, service or concept, you will have to get specific. Talk to a seasoned expert about turning your dream into reality. They'll advise you on potential pitfalls and suggest ways to make your pitch so it is successful. It may take longer than you expect to get this notion off the ground. Be patient. Keep an eye on someone who has a great track record with promotion.
Financial plans must be revised. You don't have as much cash in reserve as you thought to purchase a new car, computer or appliance. Think about buying a second-hand item from a reputable dealer. Although you would rather have something that comes straight off the assembly line, saving up for such a purchase will be incredibly inconvenient. Ask friends on social media for suggestions on where to shop. You'll get good advice and an even better deal.
It will be difficult to get your point across to your romantic partner. You're highly emotional about a domestic issue. A difference of philosophies is creating tension in your relationship. No matter how serious the issue, it's important to take a few steps back, breathe deep and remember no decision is permanent. If you take a path and it is disastrous, you can always change direction. Put your heads together and devise a plan of action with which you both can live.
You're concerned about your health. A work situation is wearing on your nerves. It feels like you have no other choice but to stay in this position. Stop imposing limitations on yourself. There are other ways you can make money, whether at a different company or by launching your own business. Finding a career that draws on your loving energy is strongly advised. Looking after children, animals or plants will be emotionally gratifying and financially sound.
Don't neglect responsibilities to a friend for the sake of fun. The temptation to remain on holiday for a few extra days will be strong, but you should stick to your original plan. Someone who is relying on your help will be terribly inconvenienced if you back out of this agreement. If you have become totally consumed with a hobby, book or game, limit your time with this diversion. Getting totally sucked into another world will cause you to miss special moments with your nearest and dearest.
You're not sure how to deal with a family problem. Half of your relatives think you should take a hard stance, while others feel you should be more compassionate. The last consideration should be what the public will think of your decision. Let your primary motivation be helping someone recover from an illness, addiction or obsession. Someone who dealt with a similar issue a few months ago will offer valuable advice. Don't pressure yourself to immediately know all the answers.
Nervous tension is undermining your productivity. Instead of worrying about making the right choice, just take a few steps towards your ultimate goal. Once you make a few simple changes, the big breaks you need will come. Have faith in the Universe's bounty. If you want to take an exciting trip, buy a guidebook. Are you thinking of going back to the classroom? Fill out an application. Have you always wanted to write a book? Sketch out a list of chapters. Momentum will build immediately.
Financial worries are causing you to change career plans. It's time to get a more demanding job with a better salary. In the past, you were reluctant to go after executive positions, fearing they would eat into your personal life. Instead of sticking with a dead-end position, reach for something better. Taking a job isn't assuming a lifetime commitment. You can always privately commit to staying in this spot for a year and then reassess your options. The important thing is to cultivate more abundance.
Stop pretending you have all the facts and figures at your disposal. You're facing a situation with no guarantees. When you're in a leadership position, there's a great deal of pressure to appear like you're always in control. When you are open about feeling your way, others get nervous. That's why it's important to keep your own counsel. When people ask about your plans, don't go into much detail. Simply project an image of confidence and you'll get the support you want.
Beware of wasting valuable time daydreaming. Time is of the essence. If you spend too long deliberating over a job offer, it will be given to somebody else. Don't worry too much if this assignment is a good fit for you. Having a regular source of income will keep stress at bay. If it turns out you would prefer a different line of work, you can launch another job search from a position of comfort. Accepting one offer doesn't close you off to other opportunities.
Your friends want the best for you, but they don't understand fundamental things about your character. If you're thinking about taking a creative risk, do so. The prospect of rejection is scary, but being turned down is better than never trying. You're not the type who wants stability above all else. Pushing the envelope makes you feel alive. Occasionally, you'll be placed in dangerous situations. Others will be uncomfortable with your choices. You're smart enough to welcome the grit in the oyster, knowing it will turn into a pearl.
