You want people to like you, but right now, you are so driven by ambition that you are in danger of forgetting they are people, not 'resources'. Don't get too caught up in thinking about the ways in which they can help you. Astute people can generally tell when they're being used, no matter how sugar-coated the manipulation. Unless you want to get a reputation as a user, back off and forget trying to exploit others' contacts for your own purposes.
You are thrilled with your surroundings once you arrive at your destination. You are so delighted with your accommodations and the various other niceties offered by your hotel, you become a walking billboard, proclaiming its merits to just about everyone you encounter. Comfort is particularly valued when away from home; just be sure to show some moderation at the buffets. You don't want to allow overindulgence to make you too sluggish.
Because you generally rule the roost with uncontested authority, the challenge to your iron control that comes today could leave you momentarily speechless. You recover quickly enough, but may have a battle of wills on your hands. The objections you're hearing, however, could be the tip of a much larger iceberg. Keep asking questions until the entire story is revealed.
You likely are not feeling emotionally and physically up to it, but you will probably need to confront a personal situation today. Dodging the issue now will only stretch it out and make its effect linger, and you'd much rather put it behind you as quickly as possible. Be careful what you say and how you say it. Someone is primed for battle, and you can give them plenty of ammunition with any careless or cutting remarks.
Pushing your weight around may get you some cooperation in the short-term, but won't do much to inspire long-term loyalty, much less admiration. You're a natural leader, but be on guard so that you don't allow any arrogance to gain the upper hand. When people sense that they're being treated in a condescending way, they either get angry or withdraw. Work harder on being a cheerleader instead of a taskmaster.
If you've been working hard on a creative project -- perhaps related to home improvement or maybe an artistic work -- you will really begin to see some solid and gratifying results today. A lot of effort goes into pulling such an undertaking together, and it doesn't look like much in the early and middle stages. Now, however, the concept is really taking shape. Instead of being hypercritical of what you've done so far, keep going. If necessary, you make alterations when it's completed.
Remember the old expression 'pull yourself up by your own bootstraps'? That's what you need to do today. Events in the past are over and can't be changed. We all have to live with the consequences of our actions, and that can be difficult. But don't give in to any tendency to endow your regrets with more significance than they deserve. Melancholy people are only appealing in works of fiction.
Others will be eager to fall into step behind you today, so make sure you have some idea of where you're going. Fixing your sights on a destination shouldn't be a problem, though. Your confidence is high, your outlook is positive and you can explain anything to anyone. Put those communications skills to good use and keep the team fully informed. Their morale will soar.
Today's overriding concern could be how to afford art or music lessons. You really want to explore your creative potential and feel that you need a professional's direction. Sure, such lessons could take a big bite out of your budget, but look at the big picture and establish some priorities. Are you willing to forego a few dinners out to move in this new direction?
Getting up in front of a crowd is easy for you today, especially since you are showered with so many good wishes before you begin. You could be making an important business presentation, speaking to a classroom of students or making a heartfelt toast at a momentous family occasion. Words come easily, backed by your sincerity and positive feelings. Everyone who hears you is touched in some way.
Have you been having trouble sleeping? Exhaustion is your constant companion today. Staring wide-eyed at the clock in the middle of the night is no fun and does a real number on your attitude. If you're keyed up over personal issues that are robbing you of sleep, perhaps it's time to resolve them if you can. If you're worrying about situations beyond your control, you may want to try some light yoga or meditation before turning out the night light.
You could be on the search and interview team tasked to recommend a new hire at work, a replacement teacher at your child's school, a board member for a volunteer organization or the holder of some other key post. Prepare for the meeting so that you can make a meaningful contribution and help gather enough information to make an intelligent decision. You know the qualities necessary for the position. Gear your questions accordingly.
