This is a good day to make a deal favorable for any business, financial or legal ventures! Your mind is alert, your objectives are clear and your buoyant optimism will help win your way. Lunchtime may be a good time to jog with a co-worker or shoot some baskets. This afternoon you could complete or at least make great headway on those ongoing projects and clean off your desk. Stick to routine tasks this evening and avoid starting any new personal projects or heading out in new directions. A liberal and tolerant attitude is a very good thing to have on those winter days when you may feel trapped indoors. You may be thinking of a move or adding on to the present home site. A roomier, more spread out feeling is desired.
You will probably pull away from associates who have slowed your progress. This may even mean a new job. Whatever the case, much can be accomplished before the noon break. Updating equipment or skills seems to be the focus for the afternoon. New, futuristic ideas are part of this, but it's much more than that: putting them into practice is essential. Any problems with personal relationships should melt away. Visiting with old friends will prove beneficial in that someone may offer you a chance to make some money. Charisma is high and first impressions are exciting. The accent this evening is on sociability, entertaining, love and affection. A new love interest could appear. You may be inspired to compose a bit of poetry.
There is a tendency to be too strict with yourself today. You will probably insist that whatever does not contribute to security and other long-term goals is trivial. Take your breaks--there is a need for the accuracy that you are so well known for, so estimate the time it will take you to complete a job in an accurate fashion--give yourself plenty of time. Your ambition is intensified. You feel a love of order and law--an appreciation for responsibilities and duty. Business is growing and your skills are in demand. Do not settle for a second-class job when you and your skills are first-class. Demand proper pay for your work. You may be shopping this afternoon--looking for that perfect suit for your perfect job. Have faith in your ability to attain your goals.
Emphasis today is on your work, profession or public image--not your private life. You may wish to reflect on long-range plans and determine just how well things are falling into place. This may be a good time to announce your plans or take a stand on some issue and get a dialogue going between yourself and others. Clarification is the key. Delays, cancellations, difference of opinion would not be unlikely this afternoon. Through the process of elimination you will find just where the problem started--this is where you will untangle and fix most any problem. Good choices are available this evening for whatever you want to achieve. Having and appreciating things of beauty and value plays a big role now. A few quality items are worthy investments.
You are a positive influence to others as this work week opens. There could even be an instance where others will change the wording of their sentences to a more upbeat and less corrupt content because of your presence. This is a lucky day, and along with your ability to make things run smoothly, it should produce some excellent results. If you are consulting others today, now would be a good day to take some extra time to mull over any financial questions. You encourage others to settle old debts and to finish projects before starting another one. This is an excellent time to emphasize practicality. This evening, you may be inclined to physical activities, like sports, especially with your close friends. Enjoy but do not overexert your energies.
When dealing with groups today, if changes are necessary, you will probably encourage sweeping changes. Whatever you do today, your ability to make things run smoothly should produce excellent results. Remove the emotions and go with the facts, especially when it comes to difficulties in communication. You can turn a difficult situation at work into a positive one. You may stumble upon a remedy to some long-term problem. An extra step can be eliminated with the information you now have to offer. This may also mean an elimination of some transportation schedule, faster mail turnaround or better dialoging between departments. People close to you are optimistic. This evening, an older friend will advise you, if you ask.
This should be one of those easy-going days when nothing is a really big deal. It might be a good time to seek a solution to any technical or emotional problems that hang over your head. You have an open mind and are able to see all aspects of a situation. Do not compromise away anything that is important to you, though it may seem easier to do so. Your good feelings may tempt you to overindulge--put off any shopping until another day. If you are able to get together with friends for a while after work, do so . . . it is always good to have the opportunity to build on friendships. A secret may be revealed to you and will relieve your concerns from the past few days. Worry was not necessary--the secret was a frivolous one.
New solutions or inventions are on the brink of discovery this Monday and you and your co-workers dig in for another exciting day. You are inventive, original and high tech. You enjoy new discoveries whether you or someone else is the one to have created the discovery. Push to obtain your goals but try not to overdo and go too far too fast. Let things take their natural course, which should be an easy one now. At times you are cautious with your co-worker friends but you look forward to the work projects as well as planned get-togethers where there are many personalities grouped together. You enjoy the cordial socializing and may be helpful in the planning of social gatherings. After such a busy day, consider bringing home dinner.
You are learning to change the negative to the positive these days. It just takes too darn much time to stay in the worry zone or on the slow track--shake it and use your sense of humor around those that seem determined to have you worry! You could be irresistibly drawn to a fascinating new person this afternoon. To those of you who are single . . . this could be your future sweetheart. To those of you who are engaged . . . you should be at home! Use a quiet time at home this evening to gather what is needed to work on tax and estate issues. Solid achievement is in front of you--leave yourself time to enjoy each day to its fullest. Chase off the chill tonight with a fire in the fireplace, some toasted marshmallows, soft music and perhaps a shared massage.
Your capable mind is working well this whole day. You are able to quickly divide the nonessential from the essential in no time. A period of intellectual creativity has dawned in your life; expressing yourself with a flair comes to mean more to you. This may mean that some hobby you share with a co-worker catches on and you end up taking orders and teaching others. Beating the odds through cleverness is appealing and this may lead to an interest in all kinds of financial speculation. You have a natural sense of what the public wants and will do very well in a job that includes sales or counseling. Clear decisions affecting others could be made now. On the home front, your personal plans seem to be coming together very well. You are pleased
You may prefer to be alone this morning. No big deal--you probably just feel like tending to those business matters that need to be completed. If you must confer with others, you would rather it be over something important--saving the small talk for another time. You may have much to accomplish. If ever you needed a day for methodical or contemplative work, this is it. After the noon meal, however, your daily routine, which you normally do not think much about, should be upbeat and energized. You make an excellent listener, as anyone who comes to you for advice will know. After the workday has ended, you will have plenty of time to visit with a friend. Your sense of humor is sharpened and you enjoy your friends in the evening.
You are entering a phase of emotional directness, emotional beginnings, a fresh start, perhaps the establishment of new habit patterns. Some sort of change in the routine may have stressed everybody around your place of business. Taking time to make yourself clear and making sure you understand what others say will ease the tensions. This may be a time of experimenting with new concepts and putting aside the familiar for now. Again, clear communication is imperative. Ambition and achievement can be tough taskmasters just now. You win reward, recognition and authority through hard work and knowing the score. Now is the time to make a decision in the romance department. Say what you mean and mean what you say.
