Cir­cum­stances af­fect you in a very di­rect man­ner. You may be­come dis­gusted at an on­go­ing mess around you just now. A move may be in or­der-an up­grade from where you are now. What­ever the case, you will change a neg­a­tive to a pos­i­tive or cre­ate the op­por­tu­nity to move be­yond any dif­fi­cul­ties. You have a lot of men­tal en­ergy now to help you in what­ever sort of en­deavor you seek to ac­com­plish. If there is no part-time job to keep you busy just now, you might find that your friends are par­tic­u­larly sup­port­ive and will keep you com­pany through some so­cial ac­tiv­ity this evening. You en­joy the sup­port you re­ceive from those around you. You also en­joy the study of ge­neal­ogy and may do re­search tonight with some on­go­ing in­for­ma­tion.

You will find suc­cess­ful re­sults from your prob­ing ques­tions this day. You may be able to suc­cess­fully com­plete a project that oth­ers have be­gun long ago. Be­cause of some ex­pe­ri­ence you have had in the in­sur­ance busi­ness, you could be called in to help with some di­ag­nos­tic cod­ing pro­ce­dures for med­i­cal in­sur­ance re­im­burse­ment is­sues. You will teach oth­ers to be­come pro­fi­cient in some long-ago en­deavor that turned out to be very suc­cess­ful for you. Sym­pa­thy and un­der­stand­ing from oth­ers is of greater im­por­tance now. Give sym­pa­thy and un­der­stand­ing to oth­ers and you will eas­ily have the same. It is wis­dom and not knowl­edge that counts most now. You may spend a lit­tle time this evening mend­ing or tak­ing care of your work clothes.

You are not re­ally the one to cook when it's time to join a gath­er­ing but there are lots of other ar­eas in which to par­tic­i­pate if peo­ple at work want to gather for a party soon. You might find your­self vol­un­teer­ing to help with re­fresh­ments. Learn­ing how to suc­cess­fully en­ter­tain re­quires mas­ter­ing the ba­sic essentials of style, eti­quette and plan­ning. You seem to be very or­ga­nized with lit­tle time. Al­low your­self the sim­ple ways this sea­son. Peo­ple find you at your most imag­i­na­tive and you have lots to of­fer when it comes to plan­ning. You will also be help­ing to guide a group to pos­i­tive re­sults when it comes to de­ci­sion mak­ing. To­day's ac­tiv­i­ties in the work­place may soon point you in the

di­rec­tion of a raise or a bet­ter pro­fes­sional po­si­tion.

You are in­ter­ested in the telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions in­dus­try and may find your­self study­ing the emerg­ing new tech­nolo­gies and prod­ucts. De­tailed de­scrip­tions of the pub­lic net­works, data com­mu­ni­ca­tions in­clud­ing lo­cal area net­works, cur­rent and fu­ture prod­ucts and ser­vices may be­come avail­able to you now. Mak­ing your mark on the world has spe­cial sig­nif­i­cance for you. Achieve­ment, am­bi­tion and au­thor­ity take on greater im­por­tance. Am­bi­tious schemes and the pur­suit of suc­cess and sta­tus take on a high pri­or­ity this af­ter­noon. This brings a fo­cus on the prac­ti­cal, the suc­cess­ful, the prag­matic-what­ever it takes to get you ahead long term. Tonight you and a friend are on the same wave­length and con­ver­sa­tions are a lot of fun; there's laugh­ter! You are pos­i­tive and up­beat but you could be­come an­noy­ing if you go over­board with the pos­i­tive chat­ter. Con­cen­trate on what is needed and keep mov­ing for­ward. Op­por­tu­ni­ties to be with friends and share your pos­i­tive outlook will hap­pen of­ten but let these times come to you. You are a fast prob­lem solver and if in­ter­ested, you would make a great investigator, ei­ther in sci­en­tific re­search or un­der­cover work. Your abil­ity to get to the point is all but phe­nom­e­nal. You can talk and put into words ar­eas of the psy­cho­log­i­cal that oth­ers would not touch. You are de­ter­mined in your work and you gain recog­ni­tion through your pro­duc­tive ac­tions. You set the ex­am­ple for oth­ers to fol­low. Tonight you cel­e­brate your spe­cial day.

Your city will hold an im­pounded and aban­doned ve­hi­cle auc­tion soon. Check this out and you can help your­self or a friend ob­tain a long-needed ve­hi­cle for driv­ing back and forth to work. Be­fore go­ing off to work to­day, you grab a bag of books that will be grate­fully re­ceived at a thrift shop this af­ter­noon. There is more than one way to save money or to make a lit­tle ex­tra money and you could write a book. Dis­cov­er­ing what you truly be­lieve in is a per­sonal pri­or­ity. Re­li­gion, law, pol­i­tics, travel and higher ed­u­ca­tion are some of the are­nas where this takes place. You may find your­self ex­am­in­ing and test­ing ideals. There is time for re­lax­ation this evening. You may en­joy es­cap­ing re­al­i­ties with a

good book or a lit­tle tele­vi­sion this evening.

You may be­come in­formed of some un­usual phe­nom­ena that a few sci­en­tists have dis­cov­ered. There may be some re­search in­volved in to­day's work. You have some insight into ways you can be help­ful. Be­fore pre­sent­ing your work, proof­ing or test­ing the work will catch mis­takes you had not been aware of be­fore this time. You and oth­ers will be quite pleased with the re­sults of your work. Oth­ers re­spect your ideas as well as your good insight. Your or­ga­ni­za­tional abil­i­ties and a sense of re­spon­si­bil­ity will be what guides you and proves suc­cess­ful. There is talk about be­com­ing in­volved in some new ex­er­cise or new hobby this af­ter­noon. Tonight, a close re­la­tion­ship will take on more mean­ing and mag­ni­tude. You have an in­ner need for com­mu­ni­ca­tion of all kinds but may have too many things go­ing on to keep up with the pace you have cre­ated. You can be all over the place, al­ways try­ing to make one more con­nec­tion. Speak­ing and writ­ing are nat­u­rals. You have a need for lots of va­ri­ety. You put forth a lot of ef­fort, in par­tic­u­lar re­gard­ing your ca­reer. Your drive and am­bi­tions work well with the man­age­ment skills you have. You cre­ate a har­mo­nious work en­vi­ron­ment. You are at your most ef­fi­cient when it comes to deal­ing and work­ing with oth­ers. Outer cir­cum­stances are fa­vor­able and it should be easy for you to see pos­i­tive re­sults from your ef­forts. This is a new time in your life when the past should be left be­hind and new doors open.
