With so many positive signs coming your way, you may be a bit impatient with those who try to waste your time with their tales of woe. Even if their problems seem insignificant and have no visible and immediate relation to your life, show some compassion and understanding. You never know when you might need a supportive shoulder in return. For now, the ground under your feet is solid and your steps are sure.
A feeling of being hemmed in and constrained by circumstances could cause you to look for a way to break free of the ties that bind. Investing a large sum in a can't-miss opportunity or in a home business deal that promises a stupendous return, however, could leave you holding an empty bag. You cannot buy your way out of a stranglehold, but you may be able to negotiate a loosening of the pressure. Think creatively.
You've got something to settle with your partner, and you may as well get on with it. But starting the dialogue with a preachy attempt to influence future behavior is likely to have exactly the opposite effect than you intend. Show some restraint, invite the other person to go first and allow them to talk without interruptions until they're finished. Respond rationally. Your intellect is your best negotiating tool.
Words fail you today. You may have everything you want to say worked out perfectly in your head, but as soon as you open your mouth it's as if the Trickster has grabbed your words and twisted them into unrecognizable pretzels. Others may try to be patient, but what they are hearing from you sounds like poorly camouflaged invective. Explain the muddle as best you can and then put off the speeches until your lips are in sync with your mind.
This wanderlust has grabbed your fancy and won't let go. Maybe your nose is pressed hard to the grindstone at the moment and you can't whisk away on an impromptu adventure, but you can liven up the day-to-day drudgery with some creative thinking. One option is to start planning for the trip of a lifetime. Just collecting travel brochures and reading about exotic places will help channel your longing. With the right planning, you can achieve this dream.
The vision is tantalizing, but you are having trouble. Something is preventing you from reaching out and grabbing what you want. Are you magnifying real restrictions into insurmountable obstacles? Perhaps you're creating artificial constraints to help insulate you from failure. Every new venture involves risk. When the potential payoff is good and the conditions are right, you owe it to yourself to give it a try.
Don't try to sugar coat your message today. Say what you mean and mean what you say without dancing around the issue. That's not to imply that you should blurt out the first thing that comes into your mind. Collect and structure your thoughts first, but once you have them organized, don't be afraid to lay your cards on the table. Responses from others will be just as direct, opening the door to a productive exchange.
Peer pressure and the pack mentality are hard to resist. But the fact that you prize your individuality and wave it like a banner will give you more than enough strength to resist today's siren call of conformity. Nevertheless, the urge to jump on the bandwagon is very powerful, especially if someone extends a personal invitation. It may be hard to hear your inner voice urging caution. Move away from the din, turn up the volume and heed the message.
You have a good handle on what you need to do and the focus to get on with it. You may even finish the necessary tasks so early that you have loads of extra time to devote to a favorite hobby or to relax in a comfy chair with a good book. Your happy smile as you go about your business will spread sunshine and influence people's moods today in ways that you will not see. Your impression will outlast your physical presence.
Contending with wild mood swings could consume most of your energy, leaving you with little to show at the end of the day. Although stops and starts normally wouldn't bother you so much, you're feeling an intense urgency right now to push forward. Running in place leaves you frustrated and exhausted. Instead of fighting these conflicting forces, take control by making a plan of action. Write it down if you must, and force yourself to follow it.
You just love being the center of attention -- most of the time -- and you are definitely in the mood for performing today. Whether telling stories to coworkers in the break room, charming a sales clerk or flirting with a server in a restaurant, you leave them all wreathed in smiles. This surfeit of goodwill can serve you well, whether you're throwing a party or approaching the boss with an idea. Keep everyone laughing.
Trying to impose your agenda on others could backfire today. Despite your conviction that you alone have access to superior knowledge, the people around you might not be quite ready to buy into your beliefs. Lead by example instead of admonition. Concrete results will have much more persuasive power than criticism or snooty pronouncements.
