Daily horoscope 11/19/2010

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Practicing pragmatism is your current challenge. Hurray, something you’re actually good at—or so you think. However, sometimes when societal or peer pressure flies in the face of practicality, it’s incredibly hard to stick to your guns and insist on what you know is best. I’m talking about stuff like waiting to have kids until you’re in better financial shape, forgoing an engagement ring in favor of saving up for a down-payment on a house, or choosing the low-paying job you love over the one you know you’ll hate (even if you’re paid extremely well). Once the stakes are this high, it might be harder to choose the practical option than you think—nevertheless, that’s precisely what you must try to do.

It funny, as being too pragmatic is a repeated constructive criticism of my character, offered by others. Pragmatism, rationality and a variety of normative values are I feel my default stance, which I am often trying to go beyond.
