Life’s difficulties can threaten to overcome your defenses today if you are not fully committed to the path you currently walk. Yet because you are in a moral and principled frame of mind, you may have little trouble discerning what is right in an ocean of options. You will likely find yourself inexorably drawn to the high road when conflicts arise in your environment or within your soul, even when it means going against popular opinion. If you fear the rejection of those who disagree with your assessment of the facts at hand today, consider that the people who truly care about you will likely be pleased to know you have followed your heart.
The principles deeply ingrained in our souls are one of the few gifts we possess that cannot be taken from us, which is why we should guard them and abide by them even when it is troublesome or painful to do so. Our values have developed over time as a response to our feelings surrounding certain events and circumstances, and they provide us with a framework from which to interpret situations we will encounter in the future. We may be tempted to discard our guiding principles when these do not match up with the people around us, but anyone who cares deeply about us will not ask us to sacrifice our personal philosophy to fit in. Instead, they will encourage us to explore our values so we can better understand who we wish to become. Your individual morality will be a source of strength today, helping you to remain upright in stormy seas.
