Love is in the air this morn­ing. It is a fine day for all sorts of com­mu­ni­ca­tions. You may de­cide to start the day with a bi­cy­cle ride. Later, some real one-on-one con­ver­sa­tions with loved ones, par­tic­u­larly chil­dren or el­derly, will keep dif­fi­cul­ties down to a min­i­mum. This open com­mu­ni­ca­tion helps you to see where you can find help or give aid to oth­ers. To­day, some­one new may come into your liv­ing sit­u­a­tion or sur­round­ings. This could be a birth or the agree­ment to have some­one in your home for a while. You could discover a young per­son that opens to you now. Your sup­port sys­tem be­comes more se­cure at this time. You are able to dis­pense with the unessen­tial and de­velop what is most ba­sic and true in your en­vi­ron­ment.

This day fa­vors mak­ing new friends. A vis­i­tor from your past may drop by your place to­day. You may find your­self looking through the old al­bums and call­ing up friends. Re­fine­ment and re­la­tion­ships are the keys to emo­tional sat­is­fac­tion for you now, whether it comes from the past or it has to do with the re­la­tion­ships you have now. You have a clear vi­sion into your own in­ner sense of val­ues, how you ap­pre­ci­ate and love. This is a good time to ex­am­ine and think about what is im­por­tant and of last­ing value. This is a very nice day, per­haps filled with some re­newed ap­pre­ci­a­tion for all that is beau­ti­ful and fine. You en­joy life and may want to cel­e­brate with your friends this even­ing in a nice restau­rant. In­clude your loved one in the fun.

A re­li­gious movie or some doc­u­men­tary pre­sen­ta­tion has your at­ten­tion this morn­ing. A re­li­gious or cul­tural group could be hav­ing a big garage sale, bazaar or car wash. If it is your group, make sure you sup­port it and if it is not, you still might check it out-there is a good buy on the hori­zon. A meet­ing with some­one older or in au­thor­ity stirs a de­sire in you to achieve and gain through more ed­u­ca­tion. Your tim­ing should be per­fect, for what­ever you want to ini­ti­ate or ne­go­ti­ate to­day. This af­ter­noon you can re­lax and just sit back and en­joy what you have-to live life. Your de­sires are strong and you will want to en­joy your­self this even­ing. There is a ba­sic drive to ap­pre­ci­ate and taste life. Look around-you will see your home is filled with joy.

You are very out­go­ing when it comes to your feel­ings and emo­tions-you wear your heart on your sleeve at times. You could be suc­cess­ful in work­ing with your self­ex­pres­sion through the arts and theater, in sports, or with the ul­ti­mate self-ex­pres­sion­chil­dren. Teach­ing, other than your pro­fes­sional work, may be where you find your­self to­day. This could be as a tu­tor or a teacher of some cre­ative sub­jects-per­haps a tour guide for vis­it­ing rel­a­tives or friends. Cre­ativ­ity and time to cre­ate are im­por­tant to you. You may find your­self leav­ing things un­done around your liv­ing area so that you can com­plete a craft or art project later. Your at­ten­tion may be­come fo­cused on an­i­mals. Mu­sic, re­li­gion, drama, art or po­etry and an­i­mals fill your day. You may ap­pear very re­laxed this morn­ing. Ev­ery­thing seems to be work­ing to­gether and you may find your­self ex­pres­sive. In-depth dis­cus­sions and prob­ing con­ver­sa­tions find you at your men­tal best. Your an­a­lyt­i­cal abil­i­ties are at a high point. This af­ter­noon you could find your­self in hobby stores buy­ing parts, games or an ad­di­tion to your fa­vorite pas­time. Be­fore you be­gin to play with those hob­bies of yours, clean out some of the things that do not serve a pur­pose for you. Some other per­son may en­joy the items you no longer en­joy-a garage sale or a con­tri­bu­tion to a thrift store is in or­der. Friends will prob­a­bly visit this even­ing-you could find your­self in­volved in the old pick-things-up-be­fore-oth­ers-see-the-mess rou­tine, so clean early.

You pos­sess, at your cen­ter, an in­ten­sity that burns through fri­vol­ity, search­ing for op­por­tu­ni­ties to face the truth and ren­der the ev­i­dent to view. This cease­less an­a­lyt­i­cal ac­tiv­ity, while cen­tral to your na­ture, may be the source of dis­com­fort to oth­ers. Herein is where you find your en­er­gies fo­cused now. Deep con­ver­sa­tions may be dis­turb­ing but en­cour­age in­ves­ti­ga­tion. You en­joy the result of these long talks. You could meet with some op­po­si­tion. Over­all, this can be a great op­por­tu­nity for all in­volved to open up to new ideas. Psy­chic in­sights, world­views and im­pres­sions from oth­ers fill your day. You en­joy the chance to be a lit­tle un­con­ven­tional. You will pros­per through new in­sights, in­ven­tions and an in­de­pen­dent point of view.

This is a good time to con­sol­i­date and or­ga­nize your af­fairs or re­ar­range your liv­ing sit­u­a­tion. You could be seen by oth­ers as just the per­son to be put in charge of some project re­quir­ing a con­ser­va­tive mind. Gen­eral good feel­ing and a sense of sup­port make this a happy time. You have a clear vi­sion into your own goals and how you want to pro­ceed. Take the time this af­ter­noon to re­lax and ex­am­ine what is im­por­tant and of value in your life-an ap­pre­cia­tive at­ti­tude is easy to find. Friends or rel­a­tives visit and call on the phone. This is a time of height­ened com­mu­ni­ca­tion. You could also be work­ing on emo­tional se­cu­rity, a sense of be­long­ing and nur­tur­ing. Have a cam­era ready for the new tra­di­tions that are be­gin­ning now. You may find that you have been cho­sen or vol­un­teered as a guide for some­one or sev­eral peo­ple that do not come to your town very of­ten. Smile-this may be an op­por­tu­nity to grow pro­fes­sion­ally and fi­nan­cially. Some­one may want to in­vest in real es­tate. This is gen­er­ally a fruit­ful pe­riod for real-es­tate in­vest­ments and you may want to in­vest as well. Your most re­spectable self is show­ing. You have the abil­ity to com­mu­ni­cate well with oth­ers. Fam­ily, home and the other roots in your life give you a sense of mis­sion. There are growth and gain through fam­ily mat­ters. Be­ing ap­pre­ci­ated and ad­mired are pow­er­ful needs and the chances you take to help peo­ple you do not even know will bring big re­wards when you least ex­pect it.
