Maybe your box will contain sweets, too, Scorpio. Luis Meléndez – ‘Still Life with Oranges, Jars, and Boxes of Sweets’ c1750 {{PD}}

Are you feeling a bit of a squeeze starting, dear Scorpio? It’s like the figurative walls are closing in, and will eventually form a box much too small and uncomfortable for occupying. What to do? Even if you aren’t yet aware of these restrictive circumstances, they are coming, and there are a couple of tips I can offer that will help you handle this (in fact, help you make the most of this): willingness to embrace restrictions, rules, and barriers and build them in to your efforts will be key; appeal to the generosity of the social circle when you need help–they in fact will be much more supportive than you might think, and, if you play your cards right, could offer a steady source of clients, customers, audiences, company, or just plain guardian angels; and you must be willing to both stand up for yourself (don’t expect that social support–go at things as if it all relies on you), and be open to facing those issues you may have put off, ignored, or been in denial about–these will bring unexpected benefits in the handling. It won’t be an easy year, Scorpio, but it could be an amazing one. Happy Birthday, and good luck!
