A peace­ful at­mos­phere is deeply sat­is­fy­ing and a sim­ply cozy house is where you want to place your at­ten­tion for this day. There may be needed re­pairs or chores, but you will be able to han­dle what­ever you have planned and may even get some help with some of your chores. Two or three peo­ple can make the work move along much faster-par­tic­u­larly with some fun mu­sic in the back­ground. You will find that oth­ers are will­ing to help if they want to at­tend a per­for­mance later to­day, such as a cir­cus or play, or see a new ex­hibit at the mu­seum. Out­door ac­tiv­ity is re­ju­ve­nat­ing and when en­joyed with other peo­ple, this day may be­come one of those life­long mem­o­ries. There are al­ways hik­ing, bi­cy­cling, bird watch­ing, ca­noe­ing, fish­ing, etc.

You may be able to bring the fam­ily or per­haps a group of your friends to­gether to en­joy a play, a mu­sic per­for­mance or an art ex­hibit. Achieve­ment of your own po­etry or art may be pos­si­ble now. Cre­ative en­deav­ors and ac­com­plish­ments are catch­ing and you may find that in a fam­ily or in a group of friends, there will be sev­eral to ex­press the same sort of tal­ent. Take some time to­day to teach your art, skill or at­ti­tude to those who want to learn. There are no ar­gu­ments other than which restau­rant to go to or which road to take and you are very pleased that your friends or fam­ily, or both, get along as well as they do. You may de­cide to make plans to have ev­ery­one to­gether at the end of this month. There are lots of things for which to be thank­ful.

There is a ten­dency to­ward iso­la­tion to­day but it is not a neg­a­tive ac­tiv­ity. This is ac­tu­ally a good time to use all the pos­i­tive en­ergy around you and re­gain your en­ergy-re­lax­ation-good smells. Naps are not bad, just a fun way to re­plen­ish your en­er­gies, es­pe­cially if this last week was a stress­ful one. Later this af­ter­noon you are tuned in and turned on to most any ac­tiv­ity, as long as it is not too busy. An af­ter­noon drive to the coun­try or the out­skirts of town will give you the op­por­tu­nity to stop at a truck farm and gather your own berries or pur­chase a few veg­eta­bles, etc. This may not be a time for men­tal stim­u­la­tion but it is a great time to just en­joy and re­flect upon the world. You may en­joy check­ing out a new health food store and en­joy the good smells.

This is a good time for prob­lem solv­ing. This is a vi­tal day in which much en­ergy and ac­tion is uti­lized. You could find your­self in the lime­light or able to re­ally com­mu­ni­cate and get your ideas across to oth­ers. Young peo­ple are in need of your guid­ance. You are in a se­ri­ous frame of mind and may find your­self deal­ing with mat­ters of much con­cern and re­spon­si­bil­ity. This is the time to state your opin­ion and give ex­am­ples. There is a need for a more pos­i­tive at­ti­tude in the whole fam­ily set­ting and you can set the ex­am­ple. Re­spon­si­bil­i­ties for the up­com­ing hol­i­days can be voted on and re­wards can be set as well. You and your mate may dis­agree oc­ca­sion­ally, but trad­ing opin­ions only strength­ens the re­la­tion­ship-com­pro­mise. You may be caught be­tween pow­er­ful con­flict­ing de­sires to­day. It might be a good idea to let go of one so you can sat­isfy the other. Choos­ing be­tween them will soon be­come eas­ier. You get to­gether with fam­ily mem­bers later to­day to re­view plans for a trip that will be com­ing up soon. Catch­ing up on com­mu­ni­ca­tions is nec­es­sary and you may de­cide to do more cor­re­spon­dence to make sure you have not for­got­ten any­one. New cre­ative en­deav­ors, in­clud­ing writ­ing ideas down for a novel, will be well worth your time and ef­fort. While you are do­ing this note keep­ing, you could go ahead and make your out­line for this book. You could be­come pub­lished be­fore very much time goes by. It is easy for you to find the proper mo­ti­va­tion at this time.

This day may bring op­por­tu­ni­ties to ex­am­ine your life’s path. If change is needed, now is the time to be­gin those changes. You could call this a time of get­ting down to ba­sics and cre­at­ing a plan. Look for and dis­pense with the things that slow you from your goals. In­tense and some­times driven, you are able to cut through to the heart of things. You are sel­dom in­ter­ested in im­press­ing oth­ers but can hop on what­ever char­ity train sounds the best for your tal­ents. Al­though your mind is busy plan­ning your fu­ture path, you can be very cap­ti­vat­ing with oth­ers at this time. Foot­loose and fancy free, this evening you may de­cide to gather some friends that you have not seen in some time and

talk this evening-you have fun and stim­u­lat­ing con­ver­sa­tions.

You are at your men­tal best with clear thoughts. This is an ex­cel­lent time to make de­ci­sions and take care of men­tal work. You may de­cide that this is a good morn­ing to bal­ance the check­book, work out a bud­get or just gen­er­ally, catch up on your read­ing. You could be feel­ing in­ward and more like shar­ing some time with your lover or with close friends later this af­ter­noon. Some kind of heal­ing process is at work in your life: you iso­late what doesn’t work, elim­i­nate it and go for­ward. You teach neat­ness and cour­te­ous be­hav­ior to oth­ers through ex­am­ple and ev­ery­one seems to be your friend. Tonight, you may find your­self help­ing some­one pre­pare to move or even car­ing for some young ones so that friends can be en­ter­tained. You are en­ter­tained. Fam­ily and se­cu­rity are things that rat­tle your chain more than ever. These are ar­eas where you make new be­gin­nings and bold moves. A new idea for a book, the be­gin­ning of a new job, a new hobby and per­haps there are plans to join a new re­li­gious de­nom­i­na­tion. What­ever the case, you en­joy your sur­round­ings and ex­press your­self with beauty and the de­sire to learn and grow, no mat­ter what age you have be­come. If you are liv­ing with some­one, you will find your­self reach­ing a com­pro­mise or shar­ing the time. Per­haps you can plan sep­a­rate ac­tiv­i­ties and meet in the evening to share the ex­pe­ri­ences. Too much time spent with your own project may play havoc with

some­one else’s plans. You aim for har­mony and beauty in your fam­ily set­ting.
