Exploring Your Connectedness
Aries Daily Horoscope
You could prefer to be alone, which may be because you could feel detached from the world today. While taking time for yourself is necessary, perhaps you might wish to examine the reasons why you could be feeling so distant. Looking within, you may consider the feelings you have when you are engaged in the world—whether they are rooted in fear, anger, or isolation—by visualizing yourself in a room full of people and thinking about what your first reaction would be. As you imagine this space, you can picture that you are connected in some way to each and every person around you through shared experiences or feelings. Seeing the common bond you have with others today could help you feel less removed and more connected to the people in your life.
Understanding our wish to distance ourselves from others can bring us a great amount of insight into the deeper feelings we have about our relationships. Even though being with others can be energizing and restorative, there are often feelings we have that come to the surface during our interactions with other people. Using our time alone to explore the causes of these feelings and seeing how they influence our relationships will bring us to a more profound realization about how we perceive ourselves, and may subsequently lead us to transform these emotions into something positive. By probing your feelings today, you will see not only how your emotions can limit you, but also that you are always connected to others.
