Good for­tune opens up for you when things hap­pen in a very nat­u­ral way. Sit­u­a­tions are al­most magic and it is easy to see which path is the one to take. There are plenty of op­por­tu­ni­ties to en­joy your sur­round­ings. Your home en­vi­ron­ment, friends and sur­round­ings in gen­eral be­come sim­pli­fied and you re­ceive en­cour­age­ment to com­plete some project. Your work or ca­reer is in real har­mony with the rest of your life. You could gain from sub­or­di­nates or young peo­ple at this time. Emo­tional se­cu­rity, a sense of be­long­ing and nur­tur­ing are is­sues felt in­stinc­tively now. You may de­cide to ac­cept an in­vi­ta­tion to teach a night a week in a chil­dren’s safety class. This is some­thing you could do well and it may in­clude com­mon­sense tech­niques and ac­tion moves.

It is a good thing that we have days, weeks, months and years to live our life and ex­pe­ri­ence our ad­ven­tures and lessons. It would be dif­fi­cult to have all of our ad­ven­tures in only a few days. Be thank­ful you only need to deal with today and you will teach with a grate­ful heart. You have the mind of a lawyer, able to size up a prob­lem and come up with a so­lu­tion. Us­ing your mind to ne­go­ti­ate ob­sta­cles and han­dle dilem­mas is just where you want to be this day. You have an in­nate abil­ity to guide and lead oth­ers through the hur­dles and hassles of life. You could be very much in de­mand as a coun­selor. It is re­ward­ing for you, as you solve prob­lems. For tonight, take some time off to ex­pound upon your thank­ful list, par­tic­u­larly those spe­cial to your heart.

Today and to­mor­row are the best times to be­gin a new habit-per­haps a diet. All the en­er­gies are work­ing in your fa­vor to be suc­cess­ful with this pos­i­tive en­deavor. Emo­tional se­cu­rity, a sense of be­long­ing and nur­tur­ing-th­ese are is­sues that are felt in­stinc­tively now. You may be sought after for your un­der­stand­ing in a very per­sonal and emo­tional is­sue that con­cerns young peo­ple. You will be able to be sym­pa­thetic and help­ful to han­dle this sen­si­tive ma­te­rial. Us­ing your mind and not your emo­tions, you are able to sim­plify the com­pli­cated by find­ing the truth of most mat­ters. Close re­la­tion­ships take on more im­por­tance. This is a great time to re­flect and un­der­stand your own life path. There is a sense of sup­port and har­mony this evening that brings peo­ple close.

You may re­al­ize that there is a need for bal­ance in your life. You may find it dif­fi­cult to be spon­ta­neous, to get away from rou­tine and do some­thing dif­fer­ent. How­ever, a lit­tle laugh­ter, a lit­tle mu­sic and a lit­tle ex­pres­sion of your tal­ent will help. You could be fill­ing your week with too much work and not enough va­ri­ety. Oth­ers may see in you a crea­ture of rou­tine. Per­haps now is a good time to at least think about some­thing that you have al­ways wanted to do or to learn and mo­ti­vate your­self in new di­rec­tions-for a lit­tle time. Be brave . . . Seek to taste, feel or sense a new dif­fer­ence. The weather may change soon . . . Make your prepa­ra­tions for the win­ter. Go through your liv­ing and meal prepa­ra­tion ar­eas and list items to re­stock or make re­pairs. Emo­tional se­cu­rity, a sense of be­long­ing and nur­tur­ing are felt in­stinc­tively now. You want roots; you crave a sense of in­ti­mate con­nec­tion that will lasta cas­tle against the vi­cis­si­tudes of the world, so to speak. An op­por­tu­nity to vol­un­teer with the po­lice de­part­ment in your city is a good op­por­tu­nity for you to feel needed. You might even find a neigh­bor that would join you in the project. You make ev­ery ef­fort to im­prove your liv­ing con­di­tions as well as re­la­tion­ships now. You know you must be will­ing to lis­ten in or­der for com­mu­ni­ca­tion to be at its best. Mak­ing a good im­pres­sion and putting your best foot for­ward take on a greater im­por­tance. You may be re­assess­ing your wardrobe as ap­pear­ances be­come most im­por­tant.

Your men­tal think­ing marks the sin­gle most ac­tive fac­tor in your makeup. The key spot in your per­son­al­ity and cir­cum­stances is your mind-the world of ideas and com­mu­ni­ca­tion. Oth­ers may not ap­pre­ci­ate your ex­pressed ideals and goals or may chal­lenge them. A new planet, a ufo sight­ing, a new book idea are all the things you may en­joy in­volv­ing your en­er­gies with at this time. You could find it easy to be­come car­ried away and be in­dis­crim­i­nate or for­feit your sense of val­ues. This hap­haz­ard think­ing is the per­fect av­enue for the fic­tion story you want to write. Your loved ones want to en­joy your com­pany this evening. You could find your­self in­volved in some word or board games. There is much com­mu­ni­ca­tion and laugh­ter.

You may find your­self alone most of this day and it may be how you planned the day. After chores are com­pleted, a spe­cial book, a mu­sic store or a long-awaited op­por­tu­nity to dive into some fa­vorite hobby is just where your en­ergy has set­tled. This is the per­fect time to let your creative self be ex­pres­sive. Use mod­er­ate dis­crim­i­na­tion re­gard­ing your eat­ing habits later today. You are very gifted with great mag­netism and warmth and also a keen and pow­er­ful mind that oth­ers find quite in­trigu­ing so . . . Make the time alone today of short du­ra­tion. It could be that your friends will pick you up this evening to go along on a camp­ing trip. Be sure to bring a rain jacket and a pair of ex­tra shoes. Your har­mon­ica or guitar might be fun to bring along as well. Some­one with a tough shell, as far as per­son­al­ity is con­cerned, has not fooled you a bit. You are hard to fool and can turn a sour per­son into a very trust­ing friend. You treat an­i­mals the same as you do friends and may find peo­ple bring you the wounded and dam­aged an­i­mals from around your com­mu­nity. Word gets around that you are a very sen­si­tive in­di­vid­ual but you may feel that the se­cret to your in­sight is all in the lis­ten­ing; you think oth­ers can do the same. Today a young per­son has strange ideas and if you help this per­son, con­sider help­ing them with the how in­stead of the why of his or her think­ing. Gos­sip is out, but cre­at­ing pos­i­tive com­mu­ni­ca­tion is good. You en­joy

com­mu­ni­cat­ing and the day is very full. Es­cape with a bit of mu­sic tonight.
