Some idea for an ar­ti­cle is buzzing around in your head and you may find that the ar­ti­cle could work well as a good ar­ti­cle for your lo­cal pa­per or per­haps a pop­u­lar blog. Be­come known as a good free­lance writer and the me­dia in­dus­try will be con­tact­ing you. Do this as a whim for a while and you will soon find your­self with a nice lit­tle in­come. You may find a back­log of work is wait­ing for your at­ten­tion in your own work­place to­day. At the noon break, be sure you take it-ex­er­cise, med­i­ta­tion or just a slow walk may help to re­fur­bish your en­er­gies for the af­ter­noon. This af­ter­noon, ex­chang­ing in­for­ma­tion is im­por­tant for your well­be­ing. An an­i­mal is pay­ing at­ten­tion to you this even­ing and it is time to train. The an­i­mal is old enough and wants to please.

You are a very force­ful speaker when the sub­ject is a fa­vorite of yours. You can com­mu­ni­cate with great en­thu­si­asm. There are op­por­tu­ni­ties to speak to small and large groups to­day. This could be in a lec­ture, work meet­ing, class, etc. Words flow like a river out of your mouth . . . And an emo­tional im­pact brings these words home to your lis­ten­ers. You have no trou­ble putting your feel­ings into words; in fact, you may have to ex­er­cise some con­trol over your tongue, for you are quick to say things and ev­ery­thing you com­mu­ni­cate packs a wal­lop. You may be sought af­ter for your ad­vice and coun­sel re­gard­ing emo­tional is­sues; care­ful. You help oth­ers see truth and there will be a new un­der­stand­ing. A so­cial event this even­ing is en­joyed by all.

Your in­ner self-con­fi­dence may be lack­ing-you could try to over­come this by de­fen­sive ag­gres­sive­ness. You prob­a­bly wish you had more of the self-as­sur­ance your fiery ac­quain­tances have. This is a good time to buckle down and con­cen­trate on your work. Your or­ga­ni­za­tional abil­i­ties and sense of re­spon­si­bil­ity will be what guides you and proves you suc­cess­ful. Con­fi­dence will soon come. Your ca­reer is be­com­ing more of a solid path. You en­joy and value your own life sit­u­a­tion to­day. You feel es­pe­cially kind to­ward a friend or loved one. Com­pany in your own home this even­ing may bring many com­pli­ments your way. You en­joy en­ter­tain­ing friends. Con­ver­sa­tions be­tween friends equal a form of com­fort and cheer­ful­ness.

You are not eas­ily swayed by other folks’ opin­ions, es­pe­cially to­day. You could be in­volved in an ex­cit­ing play of con­ver­sa­tion. You see no prob­lem in ex­press­ing your­self vo­cif­er­ously in al­most any sit­u­a­tion. Be­fore you speak, be wise and make sure your opin­ion is re­ally re­quested, es­pe­cially in the work world. Fam­ily, home, rel­a­tives and real es­tate play a big part in your life this even­ing. A keen in­ter­est in what makes things tick and who or what pulls the strings is the hall­mark of the men­tal cy­cle that be­gins now. Fig­ur­ing out ways to make your nest egg grow can be a pre­oc­cu­pa­tion this even­ing. If there are chil­dren in your fam­ily, you will want to make sure the school­work is up-to-date

and un­der­stood. You may be feel­ing frisky and friendly tonight.

You are in top men­tal con­di­tion to­day and you excel in any sort of de­bate, prob­lem solv­ing or im­prove­ment-ori­ented con­ver­sa­tion this morn­ing. This could mean an early morn­ing ap­point­ment or that the facts are in and you are ready to act. You can re­ally get your thoughts and ideas across-good com­mu­ni­ca­tion. Some­thing very im­por­tant that you have been push­ing to­ward for a long time is now within your reach. There is a feel­ing that any­thing is pos­si­ble if you set your sights high enough. To­day is a day to plan for the fu­ture and look at the big pic­ture. As you think on im­por­tant is­sues, try to be par­tic­u­larly sen­si­tive to oth­ers. There is an op­por­tu­nity for a new un­der­stand­ing. There is sat­is­fac­tion in help­ing a loved one win or per­form. This is a time when ideas and thoughts of all kinds are im­por­tant. Your mind could be quite clear and nat­u­ral. Ideas are flow­ing and come with ease. You have a knack for putting the feel­ings of a group into words and may serve as a teacher or spokesper­son. If you have ever con­sid­ered a vo­ca­tion in teach­ing, now may be the time to do some­thing about it. You might even con­sider vol­un­teer­ing to teach an adult read­ing class. You may be able to en­cour­age a friend to join you in this ven­ture. Hu­man­i­tar­ian ef­forts can in­flu­ence your work and life-path. You have an op­por­tu­nity to take con­trol and be­come more dis­ci­plined. Friends, group projects and com­mu­nity af­fairs

are sub­jects of im­por­tance around the din­ner ta­ble this even­ing.
