Don't let your sudden fame go to your head. After all, you didn't get here all by yourself. Now that you're a winner, be sure to remember the 'little people' who helped you achieve your mighty stature. Coaches and star players know how to make everyone on the team feel valuable. The field is wide open to all, so don't let your guard down. You may be in the spotlight now, but remember that old chestnut about the nature of fame. Enjoy it while it lasts.
In order to have a high point, there must also be a low to compare it to. The peaks and valleys of life are defined by the plateaus that they interrupt. Right now your experiences are about much more than just swaggering between conquests or bouncing from one crisis to the next. Find your quiet space and build a nest in it. Avoid taking unnecessary risks, especially where your finances are concerned. Bad decisions you make now could lead to bigger problems down the road.
When it comes to situations involving luck, the window of opportunity is very small. You might have waited a moment too long to benefit from a hunch. If you want to stay involved, you'll need to follow for a while before trying to lead again. Take a minute to see what you can learn from someone who's already been in your position. Geminis in a partnership may notice a subtle shift in their shared power. A compromise might be the best option tonight.
One moment everything is normal and the next minute, things go haywire. A sudden surprise -- from you or someone else -- catches everyone off guard at some point in the day. Right now, the last thing you need right now is another episode of melodrama. Try every stress reduction technique in the book until you find one that works. Remember to take deep breaths to avoid hyperventilating. Repeat positive affirmations to yourself if you can't find anyone else to do so. It will all be over before you know it.
You're the comedian today, whether or not you're actively trying to be funny. People love a person who can make them laugh. Keep your audience in mind when telling jokes, however -- you don't want to offend anyone! This is an excellent time for taking a risk that you might not usually consider. Think about investing your money in the stock market or taking up an extreme sport. Your luck is sure to take you far, but remember that there is still an element of danger to whatever you choose.
Take a good look around. You might still be able to see the floor through the piles of clothes, but that won't be true for much longer! The stack of chores that you've been putting off should be done as soon as possible. Besides, you've already had your share of fun. The sooner you get through all this, the more time you'll have for activities with greater appeal. If you're lucky, you might be able to talk a roommate or family member into helping you with some of the dirty work.
The future is far from perfect but it's getting closer all the time. Since you don't have the benefit of a crystal ball to look into, you are just going to have to be patient. You're confident that you can handle whatever comes your way, but it doesn't hurt to be prepared. If you have time for it, a little advance research would probably be a fine idea. If you're in a relationship, remember to consult your partner before making the final decision.
Try to live and let live as much as possible. The sooner that you realize that the human condition is a mixed salad of blessings and quirks, the better. Keep in mind that just because people aren't exactly like you doesn't mean that they are wrong. After a point, apologies begin to devalue the person that you are. The Stars lend their wisdom and age to the debate about what's truly necessary. If you don't have anything nice to say, keep it to yourself.
If you try hard enough, you can find excuses for a party at any point during the day. There's too much fun to be had right now and too little time to worry about worrying. Set the world on fire and dance around the flames. The secret is to surround yourself with people who are truly alive. Invite your closest friends to share in the celebration. When everyone adds their unique personalities into the mix, you can't help but have a good time.
You may not have your dream job, but that isn't a valid excuse to perform your current job responsibilities poorly. Even if you aren't totally fulfilled by what you're doing, try to take pride in your work. At the very least, find a way to refrain from self-destructive behavior at least until you're off the clock. It might be time to consider making a career change. Anything can look good on your resume if you phrase it correctly. Go for what you want and quit complaining about what you can't change.
People who know you well recognize you the minute you walk into the room. Your big, friendly smile is hard to miss, even for perfect strangers. You're the bearer of good tidings and the one who makes connections today. All interested parties had better check in with you if they want the latest and greatest. This is a time of broad horizons with no limits, so take advantage of every opportunity. The sky is the limit and you're riding the fastest rocket around!
You thought you were out of the race completely, but at the last minute a change occurs in your favor. You are as surprised as anyone to suddenly learn that you have a fighting chance. You should still watch what you say, but many of your words ring true. Someone who once thought you were less than deserving gives you a second chance to prove yourself. When you come to realize what the reason is for this turbulence, you'll be able to ride it out in greater comfort.
