You find yourself talkative and quick-witted, much to the amusement of those lucky enough to be around you. Ideas are clear and easy for you to come by. This could be a good time for thinking over your future professional plans. It should be a super day for making financial plans or decisions or finding your way through just about any problem that may present itself. You feel successful and you are able to contend with whatever comes your way. Good advice and compliments come from a guide or an older person, if you need it. This is a wonderful day in general-and an exceptional holiday time. If you are alone this evening you might volunteer to help a friend so he or she can get some sleep or rest or just have a change of pace for a few hours.
A look into your deeper, more spiritual nature will be available to you at this time-a little quiet time this morning is good. Allowing your creative side a free rein could be your ticket to new solutions or inventions. You show great understanding and awareness of the needs of others and you are in a good position to communicate, listen or make decisions. You may enjoy a round of golf or some other workout with a friend or mate after work. Raising your own vegetables interests you and this evening you may decide a trip to the library or bookstore would help you decide on the type of garden you would like to work into your schedule this next spring. It could be something as simple as large pots that can be worked into the landscape easily.
A demanding boss, who has always been very hard to please, pays you a compliment. Evidently, you are doing something right. You are pleased with the results of your hard work and others are pleased as well. You promise yourself to kick it up a notch for next year in hopes of getting a promotion or increase in salary. This afternoon circumstances create a good focus for you to complete a difficult task. Your more reserved side is dominant this evening. Visiting with friends or family is a good thing, and the rush to please turns into several convenient opportunities for your own needs in the next few days. If you are not the regular cook, you may help the main cook tonight with a specialty item. A few flowers complement the atmosphere.
You just seem to have a natural sense for communicating with others. Clear thoughts about the past may also be flowing into your life. You may be planning a big get-together with friends soon. If you have been in a new workplace this year, you may find yourself wrapped up in some holiday plans that are quite different from your usual experiences. Tonight you talk about traditions you want to create with a loved one. Other people and the general place and time in which you find yourself are very pleasant. You may enjoy the company of many people this evening. You are thankful to have so many delightful friends. Your spirituality will become more pronounced and you may be able to express yourself in poetry or in attitude. Self-expression is accomplished through helping others at this time and you are always happy to help someone in the workplace or home place, whether they ask, or even if they do not ask. You have some sort of talent that other people enjoy. Family members encourage you to develop your special technical, scientific or spiritual talents and encourage you to try for perfection. You will be open to beauty and poetry. Your creative spirit is enhanced at this time, which may manifest as daydreaming and drifting attention from time to time. Anything you need this birthday year, including financial backers, will be pulled in for you because of your integrity of purpose. The reputation that ensues will be yours with little effort-magic happens. Happy birthday!
You are very capable at managing others and that is what today seems to be all about-you are in charge and in high focus. You should find this an exceptionally good time to be with others and to work together. A superior may seek you out as just the right person for a particular job. It seems that your skills fit in most areas of the business world and that makes you a prized possession-consider a request for higher pay. Someone who understands just how you feel will be there to support you in any undertaking. You could find that you are appreciated for your ability to act quickly and responsibly. You may find yourself delving into some new area such as politics, metaphysics, further education, travel
or religion to name but a few.
This time of year is probably one of your favorites. You will find yourself in a position to really enjoy and understand those around you, whether you are working with people or you have a house full of guests. Wonderful feelings and a sense of support and harmony make this a truly joyous time. Celebrate the feelings that you have today and allow them to carry forth throughout the coming new year, as well. You will find that others are very respectful of your ability to give advice, be of good cheer and in general present the type of person worth following. You just seem to have a natural sense of what others want and need for now. Clear decisions affecting others could be made today. This evening, you may spend time writing and addressing cards. No grass grows under your feet today. . . You are out of the door, quick as a flash and ready to get the day over with before you even get to the workplace. Do be wise in your driving and handling of sharp instruments-all kidding aside, just slow yourself a bit. Establishing a good plan of organization could be the priority for this day. There is the possibility of some changes in your environment and the location of a social gathering may change. There is actually the possibility that you will have several social invitations; take the second one. Your ability to truly understand and have a handle on things of a conceptual and spiritual nature certainly will not hurt your popularity in a
social situation. Others will appreciate the time you take to listen.
