This may be a chal­leng­ing day that will give you an op­por­tu­nity to use your skills to solve prob­lems. This may be a good time to make a pos­i­tive dif­fer­ence in worldly af­fairs or in some­one’s life. You might look around for ap­proval but if you con­tinue to do this, you could lose the sup­port of oth­ers. Move for­ward and do what you know to be the right thing; you will be pleased you did. You may find that both your per­sonal growth and your ca­reer may de­pend upon how you can han­dle the prob­lems that come up now. You will ben­e­fit from log­i­cal in­sights-get­ting to the heart of things. Pen­e­trat­ing. If pos­si­ble, get away from the city lights this evening, per­haps with a loved one. A din­ner away from home would be re­lax­ing.

There are many more re­ward­ing days this month than chal­leng­ing. You may want to take off the rest of your week­end to just take the time to relax. Time away from reg­u­lar re­spon­si­bil­i­ties gives you new in­sight and re­newed ap­pre­ci­a­tion of just where you are in your life’s story. Opin­ions and be­liefs of dif­fer­ent cul­tures have an ap­peal for you. There is an in­ter­est in books that are spir­i­tual, cul­tural or philo­soph­i­cal and you en­joy learn­ing from oth­ers that have sur­vived life’s dif­fi­cult tri­als. Travel and ad­ven­ture sto­ries are com­pelling and you want to test your met­tle. Tonight you and a friend may de­cide to en­joy some undis­cov­ered tourist at­trac­tion. Learn about your city.

If you need a loan, to­day may be the best time to take on some ex­tra work. So­cial af­fairs are avail­able this af­ter­noon and they are won­der­ful ways in which to net­work. Ac­cept those in­vi­ta­tions that will be com­ing now and through the mid­dle of next month. Neigh­bors or rel­a­tives, broth­ers or sis­ters in par­tic­u­lar, can be sub­jects for con­cern at home later to­day. If some­one has im­por­tant needs, you will be able to help in many ways. You may find that you could lend your time or guid­ance in just the right places. Work at de­vel­op­ing your lis­ten­ing skills by giv­ing feed­back to what you hear. You will find the other per­son will ap­pre­ci­ate your want­ing to un­der­stand. Com­mu­ni­ca­tions will im­prove. Make smart shop­ping choices.

This may be a chal­leng­ing day. You may be ex­pe­ri­enc­ing a bit of a crunch as your ca­reer di­rec­tion squares off against your more per­sonal in­ter­ests. This may be a real test for you. Be care­ful not to blow an op­por­tu­nity for suc­cess. This is a good time to make some changes and reach new lev­els. You may have trou­ble get­ting mov­ing, but once rolling, oth­ers bet­ter step aside. You have a stick-to-itive­ness that al­ways finds you in the thick of things. A lot of per­sonal and sen­si­tive psy­cho­log­i­cal ma­te­rial may be sur­fac­ing, but you can han­dle it and turn it to your ad­van­tage. You may look back on this month as a very trans­form­ing and suc­cess­ful time. Ro­mance, recre­ation and cre­ativ­ity take on an in­spi­ra­tional and value. Be­fore the noon break there will be plenty of op­por­tu­ni­ties to solve work is­sues and di­rect peo­ple to what­ever or wher­ever they need to go. You could be a store de­tec­tive, a tour guide or a host. You are able to con­verse with cus­tomers and min­i­mize any frus­tra­tions. You may have a chance to dis­tract a youth that has no par­tic­u­lar rea­son for be­ing in your store. You love to com­mu­ni­cate and dis­cuss ideas with peo­ple and may find an av­enue of in­for­ma­tion you can pull on when you need it. You may not have known of this new com­pany or ser­vice. You are at your men­tal best when you are com­mu­ni­cat­ing with oth­ers. This evening you are highly mo­ti­vated re­gard­ing a par­tic­u­lar ro­man­tic re­la­tion­ship and you may find your­self show­ing off new clothes.

Ide­ol­ogy is a key­note of the new phase you have be­gun-the power of ideas and the power they wield over peo­ple. You may de­cide to gather a few cou­ples to­gether for a camp­ing ad­ven­ture. All of the friends you are think­ing about like the idea of a camp­ing ad­ven­ture and you could do this trip as a pho­tog­ra­phy ad­ven­ture or just a fun camp­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. If the weather is good you might con­sider rent­ing a house­boat. You have plenty of en­thu­si­asm and warm up to things and peo­ple quickly. You have an in­ner self­con­fi­dence that burns with its own light. Your tastes in art and ap­pre­ci­a­tion in gen­eral are height­ened this evening; you may find your­self cre­at­ing or en­joy­ing a visit to an art show­ing. Take your sketch pad and per­haps your check­book.

Un­der­stand­ing oth­ers and get­ting them to un­der­stand you seem eas­ier than ever at this time. Peo­ple that were dif­fi­cult to com­mu­ni­cate with be­fore now may seem to un­der­stand your mes­sages so much bet­ter. Your tim­ing should be per­fect and those around you should find you most spon­ta­neous and alive. Ro­mance, recre­ation and cre­ativ­ity take on an in­spi­ra­tional and per­haps wildly ide­al­ized qual­ity. Such ex­pe­ri­ences can be truly soul stir­ring. You may love the study of lan­guage and this fall is a good time to mem­o­rize a song, a poem or a say­ing or two in an­other lan­guage. If you are not into learn­ing a dif­fer­ent lan­guage, you might de­cide to prac­tice your writ­ing skills. You can ap­pre­ci­ate an imag­i­na­tive ap­proach and may value fu­tur­is­tic ideas. Cus­tomers ex­pect im­me­di­ate re­sponses to their in­quiries. You are the one that usu­ally finds the right so­lu­tion. You can match the right com­pany to the right cus­tomer or client, and when a per­son is a self-starter, you are able to help this per­son find the best di­rec­tion in which to earn a liv­ing. The cast of char­ac­ters to­day is en­joy­able, if not a lit­tle quirky. Com­mu­nity or fam­ily con­cerns may hold your in­ter­est this af­ter­noon. There is an in­ter­est in bring­ing peo­ple to­gether. This could be­come in­volved in de­vel­op­ing com­mu­ni­ca­tions be­tween neigh­bors, friends or fam­ily. Oth­ers want to help you achieve and you will find all the sup­port or help you need. The urge to move or ex­pe­ri­ence a dif­fer­ent city may cre­ate a de­sire to roam . . . For the week­end per­haps.
