Ex­tra money comes your way at work this morn­ing. You could re­ceive money from a foot­ball pool or some other sim­i­lar type of ac­tiv­ity. Your pro­fes­sional am­bi­tion is in­ten­si­fied-you aim to make a dif­fer­ence in this world-to ac­com­plish. This would be a good time to thin out your re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and bal­ance some of your ac­tiv­i­ties: some un­fin­ished projects or some de­sired abil­ity that you would like to try. You may find your­self look­ing through a few continuing ed­u­ca­tion classes in hopes of learning more about some­thing new you may want to ac­com­plish. This could be pi­ano, voice, com­puter ex­per­tise or per­haps art. You may be very pleased to dis­cover how peace­ful you be­come while in the process of cre­at­ing.

You may find your­self work­ing on bud­get­ing for your place of busi­ness as well as a per­sonal bud­get for the com­ing hol­i­days. Bud­get­ing is where your at­ten­tion is most of this day. Per­haps you own a com­pany or you help some­one that owns a com­pany. You are on the right path with the for­mat you are tak­ing, no mat­ter where you are work­ing. A prac­ti­cal aware­ness of the na­ture of time is the key­note of your deep­est feel­ings now. There is a ten­dency to be too strict with your­self and to in­sist that what­ever does not con­trib­ute to se­cu­rity and other long-term goals is triv­ial. Your de­sire to achieve is in­ten­si­fied and you could be look­ing for a part-time job or try­ing to talk a fam­ily mem­ber into work­ing part-time. If you work with facts, you will be suc­cess­ful.

Work, achieve­ment and am­bi­tion mean a lot to you and it is a good time to take care of some busi­ness you have post­poned or dis­re­garded up to now. Obli­ga­tions come to your at­ten­tion. This af­ter­noon you may find your­self hur­ry­ing to some group meet­ing. Be­ing on the go and keeping a fin­ger to the winds of change make you feel in touch; learning and com­mu­ni­cat­ing scratch an in­stinc­tive itch. Your burn­ing zeal for the ideal world and your need to be part of a group of like­minded souls are ma­jor fac­tors in your makeup. You learn and grow through your ef­forts to help oth­ers and you are happy to ac­cept some work that will help get the home­less off the streets. Be­fore the day is over, you may have talked sev­eral other peo­ple into join­ing you in this work.

A drive to find the an­swers to your ques­tions may find you ex­am­in­ing and work­ing through some prob­lems that have lin­gered far too long on your desk. Push too hard and you could put your­self into some stress-how­ever, you might find a co-worker will­ing to help you work a trade. When this co-worker needs help you have the op­por­tu­nity to re­turn the fa­vor. This af­ter­noon you en­joy shop­ping for a fam­ily mem­ber-you make a con­scious ef­fort to com­pare prices and qual­ity. Hav­ing and ap­pre­ci­at­ing things of beauty and value plays a big­ger role in your life now. Pro­vided you do not spend it all on the fancy things that catch your eye, this can be a fi­nan­cially fa­vor­able pe­riod. A birth­day or an­niver­sary is cel­e­brated tonight. Ro­mance is on the hori­zon. Make room for new growth-yes, you can ex­pect some pos­i­tive changes in your life. The re­sults will be their own paths of de­vel­op­ment. Be tuned into the pos­i­tive in your life and give your­self credit for the progress you have made. You may me­thod­i­cally go about plan­ning and cre­at­ing your fu­ture. This whole birth­day year will be full of ac­com­plish­ments in the busi­ness world and growth in your emo­tional life. You will mul­ti­ply your ca­reer op­tions. The ef­fort to­ward mak­ing dreams come true can be scary at first, but you will look back years from now and be glad you dared. Af­ter the cel­e­bra­tions of the day are put aside, you will con­tinue to find all sorts of rea­sons to ap­pre­ci­ate and en­joy life; smile your con­ta­gious smile-happy birth­day!

You might like to ig­nore re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and do some so­cial­iz­ing later today but the de­mands of the work­place seem to be a bit more in­tense than usual. Con­sid­er­ing that a day or so of va­ca­tion could be some­thing you could en­joy soon, you need to be quick to solve and end as many projects as pos­si­ble. This day is sched­uled for work re­spon­si­bil­i­ties but by the af­ter­noon, you may look to your friends for a change of en­vi­ron­ment. Your opin­ions in a group sit­u­a­tion are rel­e­vant and taken un­der con­sid­er­a­tion. A type of time-share sit­u­a­tion may de­velop and you have enough re­spon­si­ble friends to suc­cess­fully en­joy this op­tion. The only things left to de­cide are the dates and the clothes. This is the

kind of talk that en­cour­ages you to be cre­ative.

Some of the health­i­est love re­la­tion­ships grow from friend­ships. This is the best time of the year to en­joy the art of bringing a re­la­tion­ship close. Some of the most beau­ti­ful flow­ers and veg­eta­bles grow this time of year. If you find your­self in a place of busi­ness, your desk will be adorned with the beauty of a gar­den and enough color to lift any spirit that needs a boost. Har­mo­nious ties to oth­ers are what you yearn for; re­fine­ment and el­e­gance are what you seek. The ideal part­ner­ship, the per­fect bal­ance, the high­est stan­dards of truth and beauty are some of the things that quicken your pulse. A co-worker may be much more agree­able this week than in the past. You and a friend may work to­gether in a vol­un­teer or­ga­ni­za­tion this evening. Do not de­cline an as­signed task be­cause of a lack of train­ing or ex­pe­ri­ence. You can learn as you go. You could find a teacher or guide, a new ap­proach to your ca­reer, etc. You may find ways that can save the com­pany some ex­tra ex­penses this year. Your mind is on cut­ting through the nonessen­tials and pen­e­trat­ing to the core-you want to know who or what pulls the strings. Learning and know­ing a lit­tle about a lot of things, as well as stay­ing in touch and on top of the lat­est de­vel­op­ments, sat­is­fies a need for men­tal stim­u­la­tion. An open mind may be the key to suc­cess. Let op­ti­mism carry you through a dif­fi­cult dilemma this af­ter­noon. At home, you re­ally get into the hol­i­day sea­son. Young peo­ple fig­ure more promi­nently in your life as well.
