Horoscope for February 4 by Russell Grant
You wish an older relative would be less judgmental. It can be a stressful feeling that you can't live up to the expectations they have of you. A social gathering may not be particularly exciting, but it will provide you with the opportunity to relax and let any tension melt away.
It will come as a relief when a friend or partner who has been awkward with you starts to be friendlier. You were starting to worry that you were falling apart. Now you know that you can get this relationship back to how it was before.
You are beginning to learn that in order to make progress, it is necessary to stop underestimating your abilities. It gives you pleasure to display your talent. You have achieved most of what you set out to do even though it has not been easy.
You can turn to someone you trust to give you the advice you need. Although a choice you have to make should ultimately be your decision, you need reassurance that you are approaching the matter in an objective manner.
An invitation to a fun date will be received at the same time you receive a message to inform you that someone in the family needs you. It's hard to decide what to do when it's getting harder and harder to please everyone.
Everything will go according to plan. You'll love that there are no surprises. You are well prepared and your good planning will prove to be worth it. If you have some time to yourself at the end of the day, you can use this to catch your breath.
Disputes that arise will be resolved quickly. Early disagreements may have made you afraid of what the rest of the day might bring, but they won't last, and by this evening, all irritations and annoyances will begin to disappear.
It will not be possible to ignore the tension in some relationships. A casual comment will invite the kind of reaction you could never have anticipated. Someone's scathing comments startle you and make you want to withdraw from group activities.
The only way to find out if you and a new partner have similar long-term goals will be to discuss your future plans. If you have similar priorities, you are more likely to stay together. You'll be on the same mental wavelength as your Leo and Gemini friends.
Sometimes you have to prioritize your needs. So if you're not in the mood, let people know you can't make it. You don't have to feel guilty about refusing to do something you don't want to do.
You need to be confident and make changes in areas that bring you dissatisfaction or frustration. If a relationship is no longer meaningful, it would be foolish to let it remain as it is. It's up to you to do something about it.
You'll be quick to grab an opportunity to dive into an exciting group project. Like-minded people seek your company. Use your popularity to push your agenda.
