Transits Effective for August 23, 2015 (GMT August 24, 2015)

People respect what you say when you communicate from the heart, while listening to what others say can give you an objective perspective. With an opportunity to know more about yourself, you can deepen self-knowledge by the answers you seek. Being childlike-or with children-keeps you young and makes learning fun.

Opening whatever is closed is possible now as circumstances promote a more relaxed attitude to those areas that are unyielding. If you like to maintain a firm grip on certain aspects of your life, you can ease up a bit now and probably accomplish more. Wherever you exercise your authority, you likely are more effective during this cycle when you are less concerned with the literal facts and more attentive to the implied intent. Those whom you answer to are often more receptive at this time and may be willing to overlook missteps while allowing you greater latitude.

Being easier on yourself and others can actually bring you closer to your goals. Learning how to stay focused while not becoming locked in on a target can allow you to recognize possibilities that you otherwise might miss when your vision is narrow. Although the objectives that you seek should drive you now, you likely are more aware of their subtleties, and small adjustments that you implement now can have a large and helpful impact. By appreciating other sides to an issue or other ways to accomplish the same task, you likely access answers that before you might not have considered, and problems that seem intractable and are stuck can loosen.

Sometimes this cycle has a positive mental impact where you are able to reason with imagination. Greater pliability in your thinking can permit you to structure more openly, and you may recognize the value of incorporating creativity into any decision. Letting go of concerns rather than holding onto them can dissipate repetitive thought patterns that typically are negative. Although you can get things done during this period, you generally are more productive when you take time out for rest and contemplation. Disengaging from the strain of work not only offers relief, but it also can give you pause to realize how to function more efficiently.

This period may have little noticeable impact since it involves an influence that is difficult to detect. Responsibilities, however, may lose some of their weight now without any effort on your part. An attitude of acceptance can emerge that dissolves burdensome obligations while imperceptibly shifting your priorities. Whatever is out of place tends to find its right position more readily now when you don?t force it. If you sense that you are off course in any way, you may become more attuned to the right direction. All that may be required is one small step to get you back on track.

Less likely to pass judgment, you can provide a sympathetic ear to those who need you. Learning is easier when you are uncritical because you can recognize what you might ordinarily overlook-when biased. Being more receptive, you hear and see more than usual; you communicate and think more openly. Words help you to connect to what is universal. Thoughts inspire you.
