You won't fall on your feet every time you jump. Or slip. Or get caught up in a situation that seems to be leading you towards a fall. But sometimes, though, our head for heights sends us unreliable signals. We look down and assume we've got a long way to go when actually, there's not much distance to travel. Or we start to feel dizzy and fearful, even though we are safely strapped into a set of safe circumstances. You are now safer and more fortunate than you realise.

Early in his film career, actor Oliver Hardy often played the parts of bad guys. But when he joined with Stan Laurel to collaborate on their series of comedic movies, he became a likable buffoon. I predict you'll soon be the beneficiary of a comparable conversion, Taurus. Some troubling or adversarial influence in your life will become warmer and fuzzier, maybe even downright helpful and amusing. The psychological term for a conversion this dramatic is enantiodromia. It refers to the process whereby something changes into its opposite. It won't be as freakish as it might initially appear. The unexpected transformation will be the result of an organic process.

A need for excitement
Today you seek excitement and stimulation through your love relationships, even to the point of provoking a fight. The existing patterns of your relationships will become difficult to deal with even if you know that they are basically constructive. Be careful of being impatient with loved ones, demanding that they gratify your need for excitement, unless of course you want to have an argument. On the other hand, this is a good day for getting things out into the open, where the two of you may reach an understanding. If you and your loved one are under no constraints, then you can enjoy many new experiences with each other. In fact, this influence can be a test of the flexibility of your relationship. The less flexible it is, the more disruptive this time will be.

Enantiodromia is typically experienced in conjunction with symptoms associated with acute neurosis, and often foreshadows a rebirth of the personality.

Oh, good, I'm about to have some sort of acute neurotic break and shift in personality, but that's probably a good thing? Oy.

Apparently it's also good that I'm learning patience.

    My shoulder has been bugging me a lot, enough that I spent most of the day in bed soused up with NSAIDS. On top of that, some sicky-icky stuff that…

    Somehow I ended up with space for an additional 50 icons. I'm quite okay with that. Made a new one. I'll probably make more in time, but for right…
