There are en­tre­pre­neur­ial en­er­gies avail­able to you now and they con­tinue to pro­mote har­mo­nious risk-tak­ing. Make new starts in as many ar­eas as pos­si­ble and be will­ing to take chances that can fur­ther your dreams. The en­ergy for achiev­ing your goals is strong! Ac­tively take charge of what­ever needs to be done to make your dreams come true. Make a plan and fol­low it as closely as pos­si­ble. Re­assess it of­ten and change it when nec­es­sary. The point is to get mov­ing; this is your time to achieve and get ahead. Melo­dra­matic com­pli­ca­tions can come from young peo­ple this af­ter­noon, par­tic­u­larly if they are not used to you tak­ing charge. This may all cul­mi­nate in a happy out­come when a chart re­veals time and date with names and check­marks for chores. Hugs!

high-tech or ide­al­is­tic ap­proach sets you apart. You are at your men­tal best with sharp ideas and clear thoughts. This is an ex­cel­lent time to make de­ci­sions and take care of men­tal work. You de­velop a knack for be­ing in the right place at the right time. You eas­ily win the ad­mi­ra­tion of oth­ers. A drive to probe and pen­e­trate may find you ex­am­in­ing and work­ing through many changes that re­late to your pro­fes­sion. Big changes af­fect­ing your ca­reer, sta­tus and rep­u­ta­tion are likely now. There is much to en­joy as many par­ties and gath­er­ings are near. Take your time and pre­pare gifts and treats ahead of time for hol­i­day events next month. If you are not cook­ing, start now to find lit­tle store-bought treats you know will please your friends.

Your am­bi­tion is strong. Things seem to fall in place and progress is easy. You are in a time of ex­pand­ing con­scious­ness and height­ened aware­ness. You will pros­per through new in­sights, in­ven­tions and an in­de­pen­dent point of view. Oth­ers may find you a lit­tle quiet today; lit­tle do they know that those late-night talk shows and trips to the li­brary are help­ing to ed­u­cate you about world af­fairs and planet health is­sues. You may even be plot­ting a path to help cre­ate aware­ness so that oth­ers will help to­ward heal­ing our planet. Con­sider record­ing some shows to get bet­ter rest. Although fi­nan­cial re­wards will come through your hard work, dec­o­rat­ing projects, land­scap­ing and real es­tate could be lu­cra­tive for you in the com­ing years.

This is a busy time and you will find your at­ten­tion is needed in sev­eral dif­fer­ent di­rec­tions. There could be times in the work­place today that you would be pre­sented with the choice of gos­sip or joke play­ing or some other non-work ac­tiv­ity-don’t. Your be­hav­ior is an ex­am­ple to oth­ers; make it pos­i­tive. You may re­ceive sud­den news that will cre­ate much ex­cite­ment today. Share this news with a loved one; it will bring you closer to­gether. There are new so­cial con­tacts that come to you through your co-work­ers, per­haps some­one new. The power of or­ga­ni­za­tion on a so­cial scale, such as busi­ness or po­lit­i­cal af­fairs, seems to take greater im­por­tance. Look through your clothes this evening and list the things you need for an up­com­ing event. You may feel your in­de­pen­dence is blocked. Take the ini­tia­tive-work co­op­er­a­tively to reach mu­tual goals. You rea­son and an­a­lyze end­lessly and are never hap­pier than when fully en­gaged in some project. You may be tempted to place a bet later today. An op­por­tu­nity to im­prove your fi­nan­cial sit­u­a­tion will soon present it­self­don’t let it slip through your fin­gers by in­volv­ing your­self with reck­less gam­bles. The plan­ets, at this time, help ac­tu­al­ize or bring out your sen­si­tive side. You are se­duc­tive and af­fec­tion­ate and if you are sin­gle, you may find that this is a good time to seek and find a spe­cial re­la­tion­ship. If you are not sin­gle, this is an ex­cel­lent time to build upon your present re­la­tion­ship. You cook this evening and set the ta­ble with can­dles.

The en­ergy for today is pos­i­tive, es­pe­cially as you re­late to the work­place. It is easy to ac­com­plish your goals for the day. Take chances and fol­low your dream. There are pos­i­tive en­er­gies for suc­cess­ful en­tre­pre­neur­ial en­deav­ors today and to­mor­row. You could feel great sup­port from those around you. Cir­cum­stances could dic­tate your tak­ing ac­tionyou feel well and strong. Your men­tal en­er­gies may un­dergo some trans­for­ma­tion or change-there is a nat­u­ral sense of growth and devel­op­ment. Your thoughts count nowuse your mind and com­mu­ni­cate-write your novel. Tonight, while writ­ing out per­sonal checks in or­der to take care of some debts, you may dis­cover the ac­counts are in bet­ter shape than you thought.

If you are work­ing, much progress is re­al­ized. At home, you work to dec­o­rate and pre­pare for the next up­com­ing hol­i­day. One ques­tion keeps gnaw­ing at your mind and that is who the per­son might be that you could in­vite to a so­cial get-to­gether. You could feel that any­thing is pos­si­ble. Young peo­ple gather in your home this evening for some sort of meet­ing. This could mean you have vol­un­teered to have a youth group or a church group of young peo­ple as a plan­ning com­mit­tee for the same up­com­ing hol­i­day. Your or­ga­ni­za­tional abil­i­ties and sense of re­spon­si­bil­ity will be what guides you and proves suc­cess­ful. You have all the drive and en­ergy you could want and it should be easy to chan­nel. Be care­ful that you do not over­spend just now. This may be a tough day to solve prob­lems or to look for in­sights and so­lu­tions. You may feel that your in­de­pen­dence is sti­fled or just not avail­able. Some­one older may tend to sti­fle your free­dom. You may have to aban­don your own ideas for those of an­other. It could be time to re­assess your goals. Your appreciation for hard work and dis­ci­pline is nat­u­ral and life­long but it may be time to change your pro­fes­sional stand­ing. You ac­tu­ally love re­spon­si­bil­ity and tend to pile on the work. You will pros­per by pur­su­ing your dreams of how you want your life to be. Do not be afraid to project your­self. Speak­ing out is the only way to re­ally know what works and what does not work.

A pos­i­tive change in fi­nan­cial sta­tus is pos­si­ble very soon.
