Noise as a distraction can affect us in many ways. It can help you stay numb to emotions that you don’t want to feel, allow you to avoid dealing with problems, distract you from having to think, and make it easier for you to forget reality. Drowning out the thoughts and emotions you find uncomfortable or overwhelming can complicate your issues because it allows them to fester. By tuning out noise and relishing silence, you create the space to experience and express what you are hiding. It is only then that self-exploration can begin in earnest and you can stare down frightening issues. In silence, it becomes easier to let your strongest feelings come forth, deal with them, and find new ways of resolving your problems.
When you go within without the veil of noise to shield you from yourself, you’ll be able to figure out what you need to heal. Embracing silence and introspection allows you to work through your thoughts and emotions and transmute them. Free of the need for noise, you can accept your pain, anger, and frustration as they come up and turn them into opportunities to evolve.

The Impressions You Make
Sagittarius Daily Horoscope
It could seem like you have a greater ability to impress other people today. You may notice that you can more easily influence people by turning on your charm and may feel like using this magnetism to your advantage today. This would be a good time to evaluate the type of impression you want to leave on others. If you notice that you have a tendency to dominate your interactions, you may want to consider learning to look at yourself from an external perspective. While you are with others, you can take a few minutes to notice the ways they respond to you. Notice their body language or listen to their responses to you. Try picturing how you would respond to your suggestions if you were someone else.
Taking a step outside of ourselves is a powerful way to assess the true nature of our influence. When we think that our influence knows know bounds, we can tend to overpower others in our interactions by interrupting them or not even letting them speak. Our real ability to influence people, however, comes from understanding the needs of other people. Picturing ourselves as being on the receiving end of our interactions helps us see ourselves as we are without the bias of our wish to control others. This allows us to fully understand the nature of the impressions we make and interact in a much healthier way. By becoming aware of type of influence you have today, you will learn to utilize your appeal in more beneficial ways.
