You are confident, inventive and energetic. Your leadership ability is valuable when problems occur that hold up the completion of projects. Take advantage of the energies that are around you now because they are all positive--any constructive activity today will have good results. A feeling of being at peace and stable on the emotional level comes into play at this time. Stability is satisfying and you strive for this in work and in your family life. Your wit and friendly nature bring comfort to all who know you. Be careful of the temptation to overspend this afternoon. Compare prices if you have a need to purchase an expensive item. Think of money as portions of your working time--then you will have wise choices in using your money.
The intellectual and the emotional parts of you may compete from time to time. When an opportunity comes up to solve any problem today, you might consider proposing that some time be allowed for you to think about a situation before giving an opinion without much thought. This way you will either be able to research or think of a commonsense answer. If you have decided to travel before the end of this month, check your plans to make sure all the paperwork is in order. Letters and phone calls to friends and family members seem to be calling your name. This is also a good day for love. A shared interest with a loved one will bring a harmonious end to this day. After the evening meal, music may be more desirable than usual.
You may find yourself wanting to explode with emotion but patience will win over whatever negative seems to dominate this morning; this too shall pass. The trick is what you do with those feelings. Consider using a mentor that will see things from a different perspective. If your mentor is not present, carry a picture of that person you might consider a mentor and learn wonderful lessons through referencing how that person would behave in difficult situations. You could use a picture by the phone of one of your friends that is good at dealing with difficult phone calls; refer to that person in your mind; you will be able to deal with a difficult phone call. Poetry and art may be possible this evening. Movies, books and all forms of escape prove enjoyable.
Your ideas may run counter to some particular plan of action. There is an opportunity, however, to turn things around and have a better understanding of a difficult situation or a difficult person. You will find an answer that will satisfy everyone. Mistakes come when you rush--pace yourself. A young person may announce that attention from you will be wanted in the future. This may be as simple as taking on the job of tutoring. You love languages and may be teaching your language to a person that does not speak your language. There is also an opportunity to correct someone's speech. Your winning ways will help this day become most positive. A drive this evening, weather permitting, will be a good approach to bringing a balance to your day.
It may be time to look at the quality of work you produce and the payment you receive. The time that you put into some project or some work-related job may need review. It may be that you are in business for yourself and whether that is true or not, the day affords you time to think about your professional progress and how you can plan any changes that will make positive things happen. Promise yourself to keep to a goal-schedule and accomplish one big goal each quarter. For the rest of this month learn different ways to meditate, solve problems or be in a state of peacefulness. Use those stressful feelings as a signal to become centered. You will find communication between loved ones easy this evening--romance is possible.
Be aware of power struggles today and plan your strategies carefully. You may unexpectedly find some long-term problems clear up, particularly if you go the extra mile to help in a difficult situation or with a difficult person. Figuring out how to organize projects and people is apt to become a topic of special interest and an opportunity to stretch and grow. Involved in research you will make certain that quotes and hearsay are backed by authority or evidence and must have practical worth and application. There is intense study and thought. There is also time later today to enjoy a little rest and relaxation with your favorite mate. Be aware of maintaining a balance in your life--family, work, play, education, exercise and rest are important factors.
Your friends and family are impressed with your perseverance. There is satisfaction in a job well done. Keep up the good work. Now that a new year has begun, you may decide it is time to clear out some of the old clutter and create clean spaces. Cleaning out drawers, notes, magazines, newspapers, clothes, old equipment, etc., can be a part of the clearing away process to begin all new. Do not forget to either recycle or bundle for a charity. Do not try to accomplish everything in one day, however. Getting things organized and placed in a particular area seems to be a phase you might well want to integrate into your everyday life. It is so much more peaceful to have an organized workplace and a well-run home place. Another job well done.
Power struggles could be intense with group issues today. There could be some disagreements. If you are trying to prove a point, find statistics or examples to back up your ideas and try again later. Give the idea time to settle for a day or two before you approach the subject again--you may be pleasantly surprised. Inventions and quality ideas are possible when you communicate and agree to disagree. The satisfaction of a job well done is one of your greatest incentives. A sense of support and harmony is a good thing. An older person may need your help this afternoon. In the process of listening, you may find that listening is really all that is needed. Of all people, you know how important it is to have others listen to your own ideas.
The past few days have been a good break from work. If you let working conditions upset you or you feel restricted in your activities instead of charged and encouraged, you may want to search for another job. As you return to your job this week, think outside the box. Be health wise and eat a well-balanced meal. Take your breaks and check out your options for advancement or change of department within your place of work. Look for work that would give you the opportunity to succeed at something. Keep a listening ear to the door of opportunity--you will have a chance to improve, change or upgrade your position soon. A romantic opportunity comes your way this evening. Save some time for watching the sunset.
Discussions surrounding an increase in salary or benefits may present some insights into a technique to reach your goals. You always see the positive and with a new plan on your mind, you will see good things develop in future business success. "Turn about is fair play" brings you around to helping another person, a family member perhaps, to develop his or her plans for future business success. All this brainwork may culminate in sharing a meal together. There is an opportunity to visit with the young people in your family that you have not had a chance to get to know. Laughter is one of the best healers and you may be able to teach a young person how to take life a little easier. Encouraging volunteer work is a big plus for your today.
Others value you for your ability to make practical decisions concerning group issues. You have a natural sense of what the public wants and you may begin to think more seriously about serving in some political capacity. Clear decisions affecting others could be made now. Spend some time in a volunteer or charity service and you will not only make a positive difference around you but you will become more acquainted with the social and societal expectations and beliefs of your surroundings. You will soon find good ideas regarding the cash flow in your life. If you have not saved quite enough to invest, keep on working at it. You may enjoy becoming involved in a good book this evening and escaping from day-to-day realities.
Adjust to changing plans today. You may be helping with the care of young people or looking for an opportunity to teach or entertain others. You are in for some positive energy within your own personal future--go ahead and get started with your plans now. This is a good day to get your own personal things done, or to just relax. Good eye-hand coordination and a sustained effort make almost any task run well. You may feel like exercising or getting out of the house for a while this afternoon. Emotions are very present but within control. Poetry and art may be possible later. Movies, books, and all forms of escape could prove very enjoyable. Lovers, children and other people or things dear to your heart are emphasized.
