The 21st Is A Good Day To . . . adjust your expectations in areas where you’re anticipating reward, asset delivery, your own work or actions of others meeting your values and standards, financial remuneration, and where you’re expecting to be welcomed, accepted, even fêted. It’s not that you won’t receive what you’re aiming for, it’s more like what comes in more strongly reflects what the social order wants to spare/ allot you or the bare cold facts demand than it will your own imagined recompense in Love or Money. This also applies to relationships, where you could be surprised at the influence ‘the crowd’ or hard realities have on the interaction. Be ready to adjust not just expectations, but also your idea of the venture itself; there’s a distinct possibility that relationships or projects will prove less pure, less true, and even more shallow or mercenary than you thought possible at the start. See this, though, as useful information that will keep you from investing poorly in terms of time, energy, and attention, and instead allows you to deal with things as they really are, and so to deal with them most effectively.

A Good Day To . . . is based on the aspects perfecting on each day, Pacific time.
