Keep your conversations short and snappy today. Any long, complicated discussions will quickly exhaust your patience and could cause you to say something you'll regret later. In your haste to extricate yourself, you may not be as tactful as the situation requires. The truth is often best served in a roundabout, easy-to-digest way. Many people find honesty distasteful when it's ladled up without a sauce of any kind.
Even though you are far from idle, it's easy to waste time today. No real purpose provides an organizing framework for your morning, afternoon and evening, and you aren't motivated enough to seize control. Consequently, you may putter around the house without accomplishing much of anything, justify long hours of inactivity as a well-deserved break or head off on a shopping trip and come home with far more purchases that you should. Well, you may be right: You can pick up the slack tomorrow.
You're in one of those moods that captivates and exasperates your special someone. Loving and concerned one minute and off in your own imaginary world the next, your partner can't keep up with your quicksilver moods. It's not that you're intentionally toying with their affections. It's just that you have so much on your mind that you simply cannot stay in one groove for very long. You try to bring them along with you, but some of these mental journeys have only enough room for one.
Once the day's tasks are done, you may be planning a big night out on the town. Maybe it's time to get tickets to a large public event, like a sporting event or a concert. While you always enjoy music, you aren't generally physically demonstrative, feeling too self-conscious to dance in the aisles, sing along or clap your hands. Tonight's different, though. You shrug off your self-imposed limitations and throw yourself into the spirit of the occasion. You may even end up in the mosh pit.
A good friend may request the pleasure of your company this evening: They may not have a date for an important social event and ask you to be their guest. You're happy to oblige. Not only does the party sound fun, but because the two of you are such good buddies, you can look forward to a relaxing evening without any romantic tension. As the night wears on, however, you may begin to take a second look and wonder why you have never considered this boon companion in a romantic way. Great relationships can develop from fast friendships.
You may learn about an upcoming class or workshop in a subject that interests you, and your inclination is to register for it immediately. Before taking this big leap, however, show the courtesy of checking with other family members to see how they feel about such an alteration in the schedule. Make your case carefully, paying plenty of attention to the impact it will have on them. If you show sufficient concern, it's likely that they will give their blessing. If you act as if special arrangements are your due, they may choose to react poorly.
One of your great joys is meeting interesting people whose conversations aren't limited to complaints about the weather, the traffic and their jobs. You almost clap your hands in glee when today's events bring you into contact with a host of fascinating folk. Don't allow these exchanges to be a one-shot deal. Encourage and develop personal friendships with the most compatible individuals. That way, you can continue to expand your horizons and enjoy their unique perceptions.
Luckily, you thrive on challenges because today will bring several. At work, you'll have to pick through a complicated contract or try to devise a working plan from the vague meanderings of clients or bosses who don't have the ability to articulate what they want. You have often handled this kind of shot-in-the-dark situation, but this one seems more troublesome than usual. After work, a friend may ask you to invest in a startup business. Don't allow the personal relationship to keep you from asking the necessary questions. You may have to turn down this opportunity.
Spending another day or two in careful consideration of a difficult decision won't have any long-term consequences if you decide to go ahead, but they could save you from making a mistake. So if others are pressuring you for a yes or no, simply explain that you need more time to deliberate. Some will continue to push you even after you ask politely to be left alone. Instead of snapping at them, give them a list of difficult questions to answer and point out that you can't possibly make up your mind until you've read their written responses.
You may feel as if you're the only normal person on the planet today. Weird people seem to be coming at you from every direction. Their bizarre behavior could range from a shopper's out-of-control ranting at a department store's deficiencies to a bank customer's discussion of an occult service. If we were all the same, however, we wouldn't have any interesting stories to tell at the end of the day. Share yours over dinner.
It's as if you've taken a love potion. The magical spell that began yesterday continues unabated. You may propose that you and your special someone take off in search of the ultimate romantic surroundings. Perhaps you know of a quaint, secluded inn within easy driving distance, or perhaps you two are wood sprites who would enjoy a backpacking adventure. No matter what kind of adventure you choose, the very act of getting away increases your mutual ardor. Happiness surrounds you like a gentle caress.
The crush of responsibility may be too much for you to deal with today, tempting you to just let things slide and see what happens. Others tend to act as if you're the only force maintaining order in the Universe. If you slack off, will chaos result? Once you pull yourself together and start going about your business, these thoughts trip through your head. You obviously need to scale back a bit and devote more time to yourself.
