Pushy mates may be a bit of a problem. They seem to be telling you to do what you don't want to do, especially where cash is concerned. It's important not to let them get at you too much. Just do what is true for you and protect your own back. If you work hard you will achieve something, admittedly modest, but it will last over time. Later those close will seem to be marching to a different drumbeat. Let yourself wander.
Try to keep your confidence high. Saturn around at the moment has a nasty habit of denting your self-esteem, so you feel that whatever it is you do isn't going to work particularly well. If you start with a negative attitude, then quite often you create your own bad luck. So think positively and put your best foot forward, but cautiously. Luckily you will feel like taking responsibility, so you will be ploughing ahead in good style. This in turn should rub off onto workmates who will pitch in with more enthusiasm as well.
They always say there is nothing to fear but fear itself. It clearly isn't totally true, but there are situations where you get yourself more in a stew worrying than is entirely necessary. Get a grip of your concerns, look at the bottom line, and you will find it all becomes much easier thereafter. You do have the incentive for improving your surroundings or life situations. But you will have to move cautiously. Try tact not foot stamping for best results.
Today may make you feel as if your energy is stuck. You could be clenching your teeth with frustration, feeling irritated, or even be slightly accident-prone. The main thing to remember is that it will pass by. Just focus on essentials and keep your head down. Later you will be trying to go in two opposite directions at once. One way is what you ought to do, the other is what you want to do. Following your whims will give you a guilty conscience, but being dutiful will make you feel under nurtured.
Fuming, fretting and complaining doesn't seem to be getting you anywhere very fast. OK so there is a temporary road block at work and you may have to wait a bit for that to clear. But you could also be chipping away at whatever stands in your path. All you need is determination and perseverance. OK at one point, you will want to disappear into a private space and just chill out. Try to be more honest about what is really bugging you underneath. Even if you only speak the truth to yourself, you will feel better.
Your anger will be switched on or switched off, since there are slightly edgy influences around, which are not very easy to handle. Just proceed slowly and cautiously, double-check everything. Don't let feelings of inadequacy hold you back. Just recognise that you can only do so much and that achievements will not be spectacular. Nothing will distract you from the essentials. It may not be passionate or very exciting but you will accomplish a modest amount.
If anchors are dragging with one project or in a cash matter, you need to set your ingenuity to work. There's no point in giving up in disgust or out of lethargy. Tackle the problems head on, in a persistent, not foot-stamping way. Focus on essentials and keep quietly forcing your way ahead. Then you will suddenly find the road clears in front of you. Have a care with Mars around which will tend to railroad you into over hasty action.
Do note that blockages and delays are to be expected. If things are not going quite as well as you'd planned, just remember that patience will help. Don't duck and dive to avoid the problem, but work quietly and persistently at trying to remove or overcome whatever is getting in your way. Though truthfully later you will be in two minds about almost everything, not being clear whether to follow your head or your heart.
You may feel a cut off from the important people in your life just briefly. Or at least that's is they way you see it. Really what is happening is that you are cutting off from your deeper feelings, mainly because you think you might not like what you found. Try to relax, ease up, be honest in a calm way and all will come together again in a couple of days time. Happily you will bounce you back into amiable humour. You will smooch, schmooze and generally put yourself about in a thoroughly charming fashion.
You may feel life is going slower and practically in reverse for a day or so. If you can find the correct attitude of absolute resignation without becoming discouraged, then it will pass by. Though it may be difficult to let yourself be hemmed in, so you could get irritable or touchy. Just don't say too much in the heat of the moment. Rely on the Moon to bring you a good balance between feelings and duty. You will come across as cool, sensible and on top of one practical situation.
Channel your energy into rather narrow tasks. There's a rather restrictive set of influences around, so if you can focus your concentration and motivation in a very self-disciplined way you will sort out detailed matters, perhaps concerned with joint finances or family matters. But be careful as you go, since you can end tripping over your feet or being slightly accident-prone. You are determined to get things into shape but do beware a tendency to be a little too sharply outspoken at points.
Everyday companions seem to be getting in your way or doing things that are less than useful, so you may be sitting on your temper. But with dynamic Mars in aspect to rigid Saturn you will only grit your teeth for so long, then you let fly. It's not very easy to be assertive in a calm, steady way in these circumstances. Try to knuckle down to hard work and keep your focus narrow. Clearly you will not be in a mood for indulgence but don't be too serious.
