Embrace the suck

By Cassandra Tyndall

When the going gets tough, the tough get going. Then there are times when you’re just not tough enough. We all have to choose our battles and this week’s skies emphasize that. The planetary combination will highlight whether you need to rest, especially if you’ve had your nose to the grindstone for long enough. On the flipside, if you’ve not risen to the occasion, there will be consequences for a lack of follow through.

When Mars and Saturn join in a conflicting relationship, I’m reminded of the military phrase “embrace the suck.” We can all do hard things, but where most of us fail is that we give up too soon or we choose not to start. There are always some things about life that are simply unpleasant, but you just have to put your feelings to one side and push through it. This week is likely to be one of those occasions.

My best suggestion is to remember that tough times don’t last, but tough people do! If there is a task you’ve been avoiding, tackle it this week while the sky is on your side. Chances are, it wasn’t as bad as you thought.
