Your mood this morn­ing is one of want­ing to be more pri­vate and stay­ing at home. This is prob­a­bly not the best time to make ca­reer or vo­ca­tional de­ci­sions or for giv­ing prac­ti­cal ad­vice to those around you. How­ever, if you are work­ing, you will be pleased to find this a rel­a­tively fast mov­ing day. Your abil­ity to use words in a pos­i­tive way helps you to be suc­cess­ful. Talk­ing should be quite ex­pres­sive, as your mind will be quite clear and nat­u­ral. Ideas come flow­ing to you with ease. This af­ter­noon you look for­ward to be­ing with those you love and you head home with that same pos­i­tive think­ing. There is power in the tongue and you are aware of the need that oth­ers want your ap­praisal. Act­ing may be an op­tion as a new play writer is re­quest­ing try­outs.

Cir­cum­stances may inspire ap­pre­ci­a­tion and en­joy­ment of your life sit­u­a­tion. Your sys­tem of val­ues may deepen, pro­vid­ing you with a bet­ter sense of dis­crim­i­na­tion and good taste. Pur­chas­ing, se­lect­ing col­ors, etc., are at a high. Today a co-worker peer may be ask­ing you to help with choices of cloth­ing for an up­com­ing event. You may not have the time to ac­tu­ally point out and sug­gest but you do have time to write down a few stores that will work with this per­son and the style or type of clothes that would look good on this per­son's par­tic­u­lar frame. Con­tin­ued suc­cess on the ca­reer level may point to your re­lin­quish­ing some of your ideas about plans. A lov­ing friend that lives out of town may visit this evening.

You should find this a good time, when your ef­forts re­ally pay off and things seem to run smoothly. Now you have the abil­ity for sus­tained work that al­lows you to co­or­di­nate and or­ga­nize like never be­fore and you bring to close un­com­pleted tasks. Those that you find near­est and dear­est to your heart, like lovers and chil­dren, are em­pha­sized at this time. Feel­ing ap­pre­ci­ated and ad­mired for your gifts and tal­ents is a pow­er­ful need. Tak­ing chances can bring large re­wards. Be­ing in a po­si­tion to com­mu­ni­cate with groups and so­ci­ety in gen­eral is a re­sult of your demon­strated abil­ity to un­der­stand and be sen­si­tive to oth­ers' needs. It is party time soon and you will find this evening a great time to pre­pare for an up­com­ing party.

You get busy with du­ties and tasks at work. There could be some very im­por­tant mat­ters that re­quire your at­ten­tion. At some time this day you may be guid­ing a young per­son. Some in-depth dis­cus­sions find you at your men­tal best. Your an­a­lyt­i­cal abil­i­ties are at a high point. Ex­pect some prac­ti­cal job-re­lated thoughts as you in­ter­act with oth­ers. The abil­ity to com­mu­ni­cate with su­pe­ri­ors or de­scribe what you see is strength­ened. Later today you may de­cide on some new ways to pro­ceed with plans that in­flu­ence a loved one in pos­i­tive ways. Hav­ing a big un­der­stand­ing of con­cep­tual and spir­i­tual ideas and know­ing just how to present them to oth­ers goes a long way in in­creas­ing your pop­u­lar­ity, es­pe­cially in so­cial cir­cles. You cap­i­tal­ize on team or group ef­forts in the work­place and may be­come a group leader by the choice of many. Teach­ing and guid­ing oth­ers de­light you. You en­joy pro­vid­ing a ser­vice and solv­ing the lit­tle prob­lems that are eas­ily over­looked. Im­pa­tience was a prob­lem in youth and it amuses you to see im­pa­tience sur­face in the young. You are help­ful when it comes to be­ing a leader and today calls for your abil­ity to add your calm­ing ways to a heated con­ver­sa­tion. You seem to have gained the pa­tience of job. When some­one wants to know your plans for this next birth year, it may spur you into some se­ri­ous think­ing. Pat your­self on the back-you've done well so far and fu­ture plans are sure to be suc­cess­ful.

Luck for­ti­fies your bank ac­count just now. A large in­vest­ment is bet­ter than sev­eral small ones at this time. You spread cheer among your co-work­ers today. In­clude a new co-worker in a new project; you will be happy with the out­come. Find­ing a so­lu­tion to a dif­fi­cult sit­u­a­tion may take most of your at­ten­tion later this af­ter­noon. There could be some ques­tion over a friend of a child. You are very good at siz­ing up a sit­u­a­tion and com­ing up with the truth and know­ing what to do. Now is the time to con­cen­trate and lis­ten and come to the de­ci­sion you know you should make. There is never enough time to do ev­ery­thing you set out to ac­com­plish. Today how­ever, there is enough time to do the most

im­por­tant things. Make a list and do the most im­por­tant things first.

Frus­tra­tions could be easy to find today, but you will not take long to rise above any difficulties. You break free of any re­stric­tions, whether they are self-im­posed or oth­er­wise-you quickly move for­ward. Higher-ups are watch­ing and are pleased at your progress. Try­ing to fig­ure out how to or­ga­nize projects and peo­ple could very likely be­come a topic of spe­cial in­ter­est just now. This evening your co­op­er­a­tion in a group is im­por­tant. This time, how­ever, you may not have to cre­ate the event-just go with the flow. Take the time to build on these times and cre­ate ac­tiv­i­ties with your loved ones that can be re­mem­bered for a long time to come. Dur­ing dif­fi­cult times, good mem­o­ries are im­per­a­tive. It is in the giv­ing that we re­ceive. Your man­age­ment abil­i­ties are in full swing-as usual. Re­mem­ber­ing peo­ple's names can be very dif­fi­cult and word as­so­ci­a­tion seems to help when there are peo­ple to man­age. You will have the op­por­tu­nity to deal with dif­fi­cult peo­ple today and you do very well. You are very pa­tient and may find your­self work­ing very well with the el­derly. Of course, deal­ing with chil­dren also takes pa­tience and dis­ci­pline and al­though you won't have to do this today, again, you do very well. If you are feel­ing bored in your cur­rent job, you could al­ways put in for man­age­ment. It is pos­si­ble for you to even­tu­ally pur­chase a fran­chise and this is most cer­tainly some­thing you could con­sider for the

fu­ture. En­joy a meal away from home tonight.
