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.
