You take the time to stop and talk with neigh­bors or lo­cal ser­vice providers to­day. Trees may need trim­ming or se­cur­ing fu­ture plans for neigh­bor­hood hol­i­day dec­o­ra­tions is in the works. There are op­por­tu­ni­ties to share per­spec­tives with friends about the com­mu­nity. Con­trib­ute to im­prove­ments. Some time set aside for up­grad­ing your do­mes­tic en­vi­ron­ment moves along very well. This may mean the pur­chase of ap­pro­pri­ate con­tain­ers to im­prove upon a re­cy­cling pro­gram in your home. Gen­eral good feel­ings and a sense of sup­port and har­mony make this a happy time. Your home en­vi­ron­ment, friends and sur­round­ings in gen­eral be­come sim­pli­fied and re­ceive en­cour­age­ment. Young peo­ple have a lot to teach you now-lis­ten.

Your morn­ing is spent work­ing on a per­son­al­ized spend­ing plan. You are suc­cess­ful in find­ing money for the hol­i­day ex­penses. Let op­ti­mism carry you through a dif­fi­cult dilemma to­day. An open mind and a pos­i­tive at­ti­tude are your best keys to un­der­stand­ing. Re­joice in the wealth of your re­la­tion­ships. Your ro­man­tic re­la­tion­ship may be in a state of change. The change could be for the pos­i­tive, par­tic­u­larly if there is more ef­fort to focus on one an­other more often. Your sup­port sys­tem is be­com­ing more se­cure. You are able to dis­pense with some of the unessen­tial and de­velop what is most ba­sic and true in your en­vi­ron­ment. You en­cour­age bet­ter sup­port. You and your friends may find time to do a bit of char­ity work. Your ef­forts are in­fec­tious.

Mak­ing a good im­pres­sion and putting your best foot for­ward takes on greater im­por­tance as a new cy­cle gets un­der­way in your life. Ap­pear­ances and style may count most at this time as you shop for that new look you want to achieve. You are de­ter­mined and am­bi­tious. Per­haps you will be go­ing to a new job in­ter­view. A new ro­man­tic in­ter­est calls to chat later to­day. Ro­mance, the arts and oth­ers of life's plea­sures hap­pily en­ter the scene all af­ter­noon. You en­cour­age neigh­bors and friends to take used books to the city li­brary. You like to think that your city has a good li­brary and you vol­un­teer to help where and when you can. Week­end chores as well as some fun ac­tiv­i­ties with loved ones or an­i­mal friends com­plete your day.

An auc­tion gives you the op­por­tu­nity to add to a hobby col­lec­tion. The day brings a lot of fun ac­tiv­i­ties. If you are with friends, be sure to take pic­tures. This is the time you make mem­o­ries. You are ac­tively in­volved on a so­cial level, tak­ing a big­ger part in col­lec­tive events. Be­ing in touch with ideas and peo­ple on a grand scale keeps your mind busy. Stop­ping at book­stores and shops that feed the mind, you will find plenty of beau­ti­ful ways to help the planet and learn about life in gen­eral. The study of psy­chol­ogy or self-help tools may be help­ful in un­der­stand­ing or aid­ing oth­ers. You feel a love of or­der and law-an ap­pre­ci­a­tion for re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and duty. There is a lit­tle time left this af­ter­noon to fin­ish up some chores. Be­fore get­ting out of bed this morn­ing you may be sur­prised by your kids who want to smother you with kisses or your fun-lov­ing mutt may slurp your face or you are hugged by a lover. Birthday wishes and lovely kisses are yours for the day. You have a ba­sic self-es­teem that is plain for all to see. Sev­eral so­cial op­por­tu­ni­ties will show you in the best pos­si­ble light at this time. Sev­eral peo­ple may drop by your place this af­ter­noon. You could find your­self in long con­ver­sa­tions about some fu­ture plans with more than one per­son. It is stim­u­lat­ing just be­ing with you. The con­clu­sions you have about an im­por­tant mat­ter in your life are on tar­get. Your at­ti­tude is most grate­ful and cel­e­bra­tion time is most fun. Happy birthday!

Avoid scat­ter­ing your en­ergy. Stay cen­tered and de­pend on your re­serves. Roll up your sleeves and get to work on those home projects. You will work smart, not hard. There will be no re­grets to­day-you get a lot done. When your chores are fin­ished, you con­cen­trate on your fa­vorite hobby. You have good mu­si­cal knowl­edge and may learn a new piece of mu­sic to­day. You may even work on some mu­sic that you have been try­ing to cre­ate. Your vi­sion is never lim­ited-any­thing is pos­si­ble. You are pop­u­lar and in de­man­dresult­ing in sev­eral phone calls that are from ac­quain­tances want­ing you to come out and play with them this evening. You so­cial­ize with en­thu­si­asm, know­ing that too soon win­ter

brings some ac­tiv­i­ties to a halt. It takes a con­cen­trated ef­fort to get all of your chores done to­day. Stay fo­cused on the fin­ish line. Plenty of at­ten­tion is fo­cused on your home, friends and sur­round­ings in gen­eral. You could be work­ing on a pic­ture al­bum or scrap­book, or shuf­fling keep­sakes into a more or­ga­nized place. You will feel that your life is bal­anced and you keep your­self busy, se­cur­ing your po­si­tion. You are mak­ing notes for jobs to be ac­com­plished and gen­er­ally com­plet­ing odd-and-end tasks around the house. You could gain from young peo­ple this af­ter­noon. The young peo­ple around you have lists of their own to com­plete and you set a good ex­am­ple for them. You may spend time to con­sider the food and gifts to be pur­chased dur­ing the hol­i­day sea­son-a plan has be­gun. You will find your­self in a very prac­ti­cal mood-work­ing with in­stead of against your­self. You may have some se­ri­ous or con­tem­pla­tive mo­ments. There is a yearn­ing for ad­ven­ture and travel to far hori­zons-you re­main stead­fast in your deter­mi­na­tion to fin­ish what­ever project you start to­day. You must go all the way with what­ever you have started. You might con­sider a home-based busi­ness. If you have some­thing that oth­ers would read­ily want to buy, you could have the an­swer to your need for monetary re­wards, va­ri­ety and change. Re­la­tion­ships are be­gin­ning to look ex­em­plary. Your per­sonal goals are in sight. You will en­joy your­self in a so­cial set­ting this evening. Your

whole en­vi­ron­ment takes on an al­most oth­er­worldly hue.
