nothing wrong with the “star” this year, you need to apply yourself more friend
Answered by Trevor | Jan. 17, 2023 13:48

It is many things. Focus on what you can control like your actions (diet, indulgences and money management) You are very intelligent and very emotionally aware. You are there for so many. Make this the year you focus on you. The job market is volatile so that is not our fault. Things will take a little longer than expected to align with work but once it does you will be happy and less stressed. Stress and idle time here and there can create a worried mind. Much love.
Stay Busy/Focus on you A LOT/Eat Healthy and Move around more than you move around typically.

I am unable to work due to cronical pain from my hip join. After having 2 kids, it getting worse each time I try to sit for more than 20 minutes, or clean up for an hour. It is difficult for me to get daily life activities done in one day. I literally lay on bed more than try to cook clean and teach the kids in one day. I have to do it one or two each day then have to rest and do it the clean-up next day, or somete two or three day clean up. Especially, their toys, swim up dust or my hair in the corner of the rooms... is tiresome, and I been trying to do stretching, yoga for my muscles to loosen up, but it hurts afterwards... I can't go see doctor, due to no have transportation, and no one to watch my kids in the morning from 9 to 12pm. Is complicated to talk to my families and relatives because they don't understand my life nor trying to understand my situation.

Please Don't let people claiming to know things influence your life work hard and apply yourself everyday. Zodiac knowledge is for fun and is the opinion of human beings just like yourself. Honestly putting in effort to your life goes way further then every reading this stuff.

Hi Angela,

I hope you have gained some insight, I and many others appear to be experiencing the same as you describe.
2022 was the most turbulent year I have lived, in an astrological sense many things have also been expressed [node return, Uranus conjunct node] that I relate to the things I observed around me.

For me, I learnt to follow my intuition and to not force old habits like relying on a job for income, it can be extremely unsettling but it is a test of faith in self and an opportunity to grow and progress.
For most it seems they have no choice but to walk this path, applying for jobs appears to be a road to nowhere with no response ... despite having a successful career for 18 years with no problem in finding work prior to 2022.

I could check your astrology chart for you, but I am certain at least the nodal return will have had significant effect, just think back 18 years ago to what was happening.

As to what to avoid and just recently came to read zodiacs again as I’ve been told I need to seek healing from bad energy around me.

Over the last five years I’ve been approached to go get blessed.

Sounds crazy but now what??

HaHa, also anyone else?!

I am ox born 85 and yes I do
Answered by Gareth | Jun. 01, 2023 03:04

Yes, I was a bodybuilder for 18 years and so consumed a lot of food in that time.
In 2020 I stopped eating meat, cut my fitness routine to go easier on my body ... this all happened overnight.
This has significantly improved my digestion, I also found that throughout 2021 during certain times of the month I would almost be forced to fast ... and felt great for it.

Weird times and fast changing times

Us ox are very kind yet tough people, we can remain calm under pressure where others crack. Im August born, a Leo. Ox do best as entrepreneurs which I am now. In the workplace we are envied for our honesty and relentlessness. As for social life, when I was younger my parents were very strict, so I never got into that party life. now I'm making up for it, I party like it was going out of style. I meet alot of people, especially women that way. I'm good with my family though, no problems there. Freinds, I have only a few and I'm happy with that. People are Evil and have to prove themselves worthy to be my "Freind". Other than that I keep people at a distance and rely on myself.

I also feel the same sometimes. I was born in August. I've been jobless for 4 months, single. Not bragging but I'm talented in music and art but my inner demon always held me back from expressing myself in front of people. But never lose hope. Nothing in this life remains the same. I believe the good days will come.

Based on the prediction, there won't have many ups and downs in the next year. You don't need to worry about wealth and health problem. If you have enough time, you can join in more parties, which can help you enlarge the social circle.
