Zodiac, Self

Be your own hero, zodiac signs!

Your daily love horoscope is here, astrology lovers! The Sun is in Capricorn and the Moon is in Scorpio. For the second day, we have a Master number is 5.

Venus, the Sun, and Pluto remain in conjunction, and so we continue to hold on to hard work that pays off in the future, and what it means to do things even if you never get what you hope to have.  

How a person becomes a hero is a concept that can be taught using astrology when the planets are positioned like today. We often think that the good in delaying gratification is the big pay off, and then we are done, we get to walk a way to enjoy life on our terms. 

But sometimes delaying gratification is a longer journey — what you want you may never get but you continue to make an effort. Beyond creating the character trait, patience, is this ever a good thing or just a waste of time?

In some of the best films, we often are met with a hero who doesn't know he or she is even a hero, and yet, they have a big dream they want to fulfill.

At first, they are motivated by some prize, but there's a turn of events when the prize becomes something more meaningful. They find life purpose, and that purpose is driven from a love that comes from within, and it's so deep, that you can never really describe what keeps it full.

It doesn't make sense. We think that person should really quit, and we often hope and pray that they do. The stakes are forever high and the prize appears to the onlooker like a dangling carrot that can never be had. 

This person's goals are ahead of them. Sometimes, they try to reach them with empty pockets and a full heart. Their only fuel to their vision is passion, but the trick here is realizing this much — even if there wasn't a big pay off in the end, chances are the hero would still pursue that goal.

They do what they do for love, and the money, victory, acclaim, etc is a symptom of their determination and love for what they want. 

It could be that they seem to be interested in getting what they want for the tangible prize, but when you flesh down the layers, the matter is that they are competing with themselves. They do something extraordinary. This is what moves them from ordinary person to hero status. 

This happens in off screen as well. Ever wonder why a teacher, teaches? It was hard work to earn a degree, right? The pay isn't all that great, and the work isn't easy later. Are they glory hogs who want a captive audience? Not exactly.

They are in it for the love of learning and the love of people. That's why a good teacher will work long past their time to go home. Passion pays them. 

The same can be true for doctors, nurses, firefighters, law enforcement officers, social workers, and military veterans, etc who give more than they ever really receive. Their hard work is often motivated beyond a pay check.

Doctors carry the heaviest of loads when they go into school loan debt in order to serve others. We see the glory of their title, but the truth is that they were healers long before the degree. 

Nurses were caretakers long before they passed a state exam, officers and military vets, social workers and cops were concerned with public safety and it was this passion that fueled the call to action.

It's why they stay at a job that sometimes they want to quit. It's passion that keeps them there when gratification feels like it may never really come. Will doctors or nurses ever see a world free of disease? Will crime or war ever stop? Will all students have a safe home and suddenly get A's?

Probably not. Delayed gratification when you know you may never see the perfect prize handed to you can become frustrating, but we see the joy in discovering just how much of a hero you really are. 

Today is a power day for Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn, and Pisces — Scorpio, a double boost for you, thanks to the moon!

Activities that are good for today's energy forecast is spending time socializing in intimate settings, visiting the library or going to a bookstore, and spiritual growth or research, including learning more about astrology.

Where your zodiac sign's house is positioned on the astrology zodiac wheel, and where the planets are positioned at that time, your energy and reaction to that placement may be different than someone else's.
