You've been pushing hard, but take care that in the quest for success you don't lose sight of what's most precious to you. Are you planning to work again during your free time? Instead of toiling in the trenches for an uncertain reward, why not pour equal time and energy into nurturing your family? An afternoon in the woods, at an amusement park or even just picnicking in the back yard can make an enormous difference in everyone's spirits.
You could be traveling today. Whether it's a short hop or a longer journey, you don't have any trouble with snarled traffic or interminable flight delays. You have high hopes for this trip, either from a personal or professional standpoint, and the beginning is both pleasant and auspicious. Listen to a good book on tape to relax you and help shorten your perception of the travel time.
You won't make much progress on advancing a business plan today, so it's best to just resign yourself to jogging in place for a couple of days. You may not have the right mindset for getting down to what you need to do. Perhaps there are disturbances in your household or maybe there's simply too much going on. If you need to attend to others, do so gracefully without laying on any guilt about what you would rather be doing.
Sleeping late seems like a good idea this morning, even if you've got a busy day ahead of you. Your energy might be low and your motivation even lower. Maybe you're troubled by some unresolved tension in your personal life, or maybe you're just worn out from a hectic schedule. Whatever is going on, take care of yourself first. The errands can wait.
You'll have to work hard to stifle your controlling nature today when someone comes to you with a dilemma. You know exactly how you would handle a similar situation, but others must make their own decisions and their own mistakes. You can offer advice if you're asked, but putting your foot down firmly and dictating terms will only lead to conflict.
The only thing you want to have on your mind today is romance. Keep your focus on your partner and don't dwell on petty annoyances or minor inconveniences. So what if the lettuce on your lunchtime sandwich is wilted, or the soft drinks from the convenience store aren't as cold as you like them? Nothing will spoil the mood faster than endless grousing about silly stuff. Blow it off and have some fun.
Your enthusiasm is at the low-water mark today, and you might be feeling a little put out because no one is asking about how you're feeling. Maybe you've been pulling this sad face a bit too often lately. If so, those close to you may have decided that their efforts to cheer you up don't do much good anyway, so they have just pulled back and expect you to deal with it on your own. Try to figure out what has put you in this state.
Good control of your facial expressions helps hide your shocked surprise at today's news. You were very likely expecting to receive much less, so the munificence of the offer catches you off-guard. Nevertheless, you know you deserve it and can hardly wait to share the victory with someone special. Until then, content yourself with a secret smile of satisfaction and a pat on the back.
Even if you've never picked up a musical instrument in your life or taken a day of lessons, you are filled with the urge to create beautiful sounds today. Play around on a friend's piano or guitar. You may have some latent talent that's begging for development. Who knows? If you get serious about this, you could be providing the entertainment at parties before too long.
You can never get too much good news, but today the happy tidings just don't stop. Every aspect of your life, whether personal or professional, is touched with magic. But this good fortune didn't just fall out of the sky -- you know that you've worked hard to get to this peak and have every right to take a deep sigh of self-satisfaction and congratulation.
You've got a lot on your mind -- so much so that you could feel as if you're bound by handcuffs and leg chains today. No matter what you try to do, your reach simply won't extend far enough. Perhaps you're trying to take too big a stride or envelope too much in one grab. Retrench, resurvey and re-strategize. You may need to call in reinforcements.
A guardian angel of the human variety could come to your aid today. You may not even find out about their intervention until much later. If things seem to smooth out especially quickly or if you receive some excellent news, be aware that it could be the result of someone's advocacy on your behalf. Show the proper gratitude when the time comes. In the meantime, be an angel to someone else.
