Daily Motivator and Horoscopes



When you choose

You will be miserable when you choose to be miserable. You will be happy when you choose to be happy.

You don't need a certain job or activity, or a certain collection of possessions, or a specific set of circumstances in order to enjoy life. You must simply choose to enjoy life.

You can choose in any situation to feel whatever way you wish to feel. When you choose to feel empowered, fulfilled and positively purposeful, you are.

Do you wish to be old, young, rich, poor, smart, foolish, useless or highly effective? It is all in the way you look at life, and all in the way you choose.

Yes, there are solid objective realities about which you cannot do very much. What matters to you, though, is your subjective viewpoint, which is always yours to choose.

You are the way you choose to be. Choose your own unique greatness, and your choice makes life greater with each passing day. Ralph Marston

Daily Inspiration



  This is my mantra whenever I’m doing something strenuous, whether it be running or working on a big project, one of the most important things is to keep moving toward the goal. When it gets hard, it’s ok to slow down and to do what you can, but stopping altogether sometimes causes more problems than it solves. When you stop running, it’s harder to start up again once you got it in your mind you can stop. When it comes to blogging, it’s harder to jump back into your groove when you’ve taken an extended brea

Today's Horoscopes 6/20
Aries 


Aries Horoscope
Aries

Difficult decisions continue into this morning, but there are some light spots as they day progresses, dear Aries. You can be feeling freer creatively or romantically (both for some!). There is a sense that you are more in charge of your happiness, and of course, this is the case. You could be making a breakthrough of sorts now and this week. There can be some concerns or worries later today about your performance, or responsibilities that you've overlooked or avoided. There may be news that worries you, but that can also lead to a clearing of the air.
Taurus


Taurus

When it comes to close relationships, you could be having a hard time fixing a problem or making a decision early today, dear Taurus. However, as the day progresses, there is a sense of liberation on an emotional level or with family. This is a good week for solving problems that help free you from the emotional shackles of the past in some significant way. Being open, progressive, and flexible is the key to this. Later today, finances need a second look. Making a small adjustment to spending or even to your own attitude towards your value may be the solution.
Gemini


Gemini

While there can be some serious or pensive energy surrounding work or health matters today, dear Gemini, and perhaps a feeling of being stuck or indecisive associated with these things, there is a wonderful sense of liberation and progressive feelings when it comes to self-expression, communicating, networking, and friendships. This theme is with you this week, and it's an important one. Your ideas are received warmly, you might feel more enthusiastic about a writing or learning project, and there can be positive connections with siblings, neighbors, and acquaintances. Sorting through work woes or schedule problems may be a little easier as a result.
Cancer


Cancer

There can be relationship or love issues that weigh heavily on your mind today, dear Cancer. You may feel that things are slowing down temporarily, when in fact, you may simply need to adjust your thinking, expectations, or plans. Even so, today holds the potential for an emotional release of sorts. Today and this week, there may be a weight lifted off your shoulders, a release from a past problem or predicament, or a financial/business breakthrough. This is a time for subtly increasing your influence with those in authority or in business dealings. You are a little more courageous and willing to take a risk on this level, and thinking may even be breakthrough.
Leo


Leo

There can be some pensiveness or heavy energy surrounding the responsibilities of family today, dear Leo, or difficulty knowing whether to branch out or to stick with what's familiar. Keep in mind that what has kept you feeling secure and safe in the past may not in the future. Allow yourself the freedom to make changes. Even so, today and this week hold the promise of freedom of expression, progress, and constructive change. There can be a sense of joy as a long-standing problem is resolved or a pet project gets off the ground. This can be a great time for a romance, a publishing effort, a different course of study or interest, or a new business idea.
Virgo


Virgo Symbol/Glyph
Virgo

You could be on the fence or thinking seriously about your performance, ideas, or intelligence today, dear Virgo, as insecurities can be stimulated. Adjustments may be necessary. Even if decisions are difficult to make, it's a time for finding small ways to improve your state of mind. On another level, today can have a wonderfully liberating effect. This week, an emotional burden may be released. There could be new ways to approach old problems, or a weight can be lifted off your shoulders. Some of you could be leaving a bad habit behind, or finding help for a personal problem. You could be looking at the past in a new, more empowering way, or you could be reaching a new level of intimacy with someone.
Libra


Libra Glyph-Symbol
Libra

There may be some heaviness experienced with money matters or performance today, dear Libra. If you've been procrastinating about an important responsibility or decision, it's likely to weigh heavily on your mind now. However, on a different level, today can bring a sense of relief or release through friends or a partnership. Socially, there can be greater freedom, easier expression, and a sense that you can do almost anything. Friends are supportive and helpful today and this week. There could be an opportunity arising to attract people who can help you grow, expand, and improve.
Scorpio


Scorpio Symbol Glyph
Scorpio

There can be personal responsibilities or a sense that everything's on you that leave you in a rather serious or thoughtful mood from time to time today, dear Scorpio. Worries about performance, secrets, or all that you don't know about a situation can be part of this. However, it's important to free up at least part of yourself to another influence today that is present in some manner all week on the lines of work, career, health, and reputation. Something is really coming together. A breakthrough may even be happening now, and it allows you greater freedom or a sense that you are really growing and improving. There can be recognition for your more unique or avant garde ideas and methods.
Sagittarius 


Sagittarius Glyph Symbol
Sagittarius

At times today, dear Sagittarius, you can be weighed down by problems surrounding financial matters or feelings of guilt about responsibilities that you may have been avoiding. Try to take small steps towards problems that seem insurmountable, and resolve to do so more often in the future. On another level today, and to some extent this week, there is wonderful energy for romantic and self-expression, as Jupiter, your ruler, moves closer to a supportive aspect with Uranus, the liberator. New or improved avenues for creativity can open up. There can be an important publishing effort, new course of study, romantic relationship, or other significant event that leaves you feeling very positive about the future.
Capricorn


Capricorn Symbol/Glyph
Capricorn

Social matters or long-term goals and dreams may involve dilemmas or predicaments right now, dear Capricorn, and decisions may not seem cut and dried or straightforward, which can frustrate you today. Even so, try to settle your mind enough to enjoy another important theme to the day involving an emotional release or breakthrough, an improvement to an intimate relationship, a financial release/relief, or a family matter that is resolved and gives you a sense of greater freedom. The key to these improvements is progressive, outside of the box thinking. You're doing things differently, and it's working!
Aquarius


Aquarius

Professional problems or concern about performance can leave you a little pensive or serious-minded at times today, dear Aquarius. It's likely that you need to make some changes, even if part of you wants to hold on to what's familiar. You could have a hard time choosing between work and play, when in fact you may be able to creatively combine the two. On another level, today and this week bring wonderful energy for freeing yourself from attitudes that have held you back, for meeting with people who encourage growth and happiness, for self-expression, and for learning, transportation, or communication breakthroughs.
Pisces


Pisces

Decisions about education or long-term goals can be difficult to make right now, dear Pisces, and they can weigh you down from time to time today. Solutions to problems in these areas are unlikely to come easily at the moment, but it's important that you nevertheless free your mind enough to enjoy the wonderful energy with you involving work, health, or financial matters. There can be a money burden that is lifted today or this week that leaves you feeling lighter, happier, and freer to make good choices for yourself. Similarly, there can be a work matter that is put behind you, or a health discovery that leaves you feeling more positive and less burdened.
