If you’re negotiating a little uncertainty, remember that your instincts are usually spot on. The same is true of the principles you hold closest to your heart. Compromise is only helpful if you’re not compromising yourself.

Written in the Planets
Today would seem to be about realignment with the cosmos. That is to say: you have an opportunity to check in and make any changes to plans and routines that you think necessary. Alternatively, you might rest and refresh yourself if that is what you need most. Either way, prepare to move forward.
