The world is your oyster today, and all you have to do is pick your condiments. Isn't it nice to be sitting at the head of the table for a change? Wrapped up in your own ambitions, however, you could lose sight of what's most important in your life. Make sure your priorities are straight. Don't forget the importance of a balanced meal and some time for relaxation.
Your strong sense of conviction and your ability to entertain divergent points of view could catapult you into a leadership position. People appreciate your excellent listening skills and the ease with which you quickly grasp their salient points. Always remember the qualities that got you to this pinnacle. Losing sight of them could diminish your effectiveness.
You may be somewhat prickly today if your plans do not go exactly as you expect. Giving in to anger or defeatism will do nothing to solve the problem. It's time for a little detective work, Sherlock. Someone or something could be thwarting your efforts. Determining the source of the friction is the first step in resolution and in reestablishing your peace of mind.
These obstacles may seem insurmountable, but you do not have to let them stand in your way. If you think through your options carefully, you should be able to maneuver around, over or under any hurdle. Think of yourself as an Olympic track star, and push resolutely toward the finish line. Victory will be sweet.
Just because you know exactly what you want doesn't mean that everyone else is going to be panting to give it to you. Getting ahead has just as much to do with taking care of those around you as it does with taking care of yourself. When you feel your ego rearing up, take a deep breath and try to think from another's perspective. If the exercise makes you feel a little dizzy, you're probably not doing it enough.
It's easy to pick apart another's inspiration, but a real leader can build constructively on just about any framework without tearing it down first. Are you up to the challenge? If you are pleased to be the object of someone's flirtatious attention, returning the sultry glances could lead to a most pleasant evening. An excellent dinner and lively conversation may be just the appetizers.
Your irritation threshold is definitely lower today than usual, but you're being hardest on yourself. Perhaps old memories are constricting your heart. Maybe past failures are taunting your mind. Banishing these negative influences will take a supreme act of will, and only you can do it. You know what they say about spilled milk. There's a lot of wisdom in those words.
You've been thinking about making this life change for quite a while. Now it's time to stop rationalizing and start doing. You have the strength of will to overcome a bad habit and the resolution to set off in a new direction. Procrastination is a thing of the past. Action and decisiveness are your new operative descriptors. Take this new-found determination and use it to your advantage.
Difficult financial questions are likely to crop up today and make you sit up and think. Your immediate reaction will be to cut back drastically and resolve to forego even some of your most cherished indulgences. But a long-term solution and a workable way out of this dilemma require a more balanced approach. Frugality and fun do not have to be mutually exclusive.
Creature comforts are particularly satisfying, and you're in just the mood to appreciate them. But in the mood you're in, just about everything pleases you. As an added bonus, it seems as if others are bending over backwards trying to make things even better than they are. Examine your situation carefully. These moments are what life is all about.
Look for outside reasons if you want, but there's really only one reason you're so frustrated, and you know exactly what it is. Until you figure out a way to overcome your slapdash approach and your propensity to veer off on tangents, you simply will not have much to show for your efforts. It's easy to resist self-discipline, but if you want to break this habit, you have to start somewhere. It might as well be now.
Different circumstances call for different approaches. The trick is to hit the right combination. There might be times today when you need to be in control and times when you simply need to let go and allow others to run with the ball. Even with others calling the plays, you can be very effective from the sidelines. In fact, you may enjoy being out of the spotlight.
