Fate sends op­por­tu­nity your way-care­ful, you could pass this up if you are not pay­ing at­ten­tion. New in­for­ma­tion can change your out­look and your life, but you must be on the look­out for it. Money, sen­su­al­ity and health can be a fo­cus for this-travel may help you to de­cide the out­come. Gu­rus and ide­olo­gies of one kind or an­other-reli­gious, po­lit­i­cal, philo­soph­i­cal and such-may seem to have all the answers at this time. Be very care­ful whom and what you believe in, as you could be de­ceived or you might even de­ceive your­self. The easy answers may seem so won­der­ful, care­ful. There is noth­ing wrong with hav­ing your head in the clouds, but it is a mis­take to try to live there. A sweet lit­tle an­i­mal is yours for the ask­ing to­day.

Travel in your pro­fes­sional life may be on hold for a bit but this may be a bless­ing. This day how­ever, may have op­por­tu­ni­ties for travel. A stay at a lake­side cabin, mo­tel, ho­tel, etc., may be planned or a call ahead may find an open­ing just for you and a loved one this next week­end. What­ever the case, to­day is not such a busy day . . . You have done your work and now all you need to do is ring up the sales or be avail­able to help a client. Take a step back and jot down a few goals on next year's cal­en­dar. Con­sider hang­ing a red pen­cil from a string near this cal­en­dar and check off these goals as time goes by . . . You will re­ally be pleased with your­self by this time next year. New and per­haps un­usual ways of ap­pre­ci­at­ing and lov­ing may be­come pos­si­ble soon.

You will gladly ac­cept a job or an as­sign­ment that could take you off the beaten path. Do not go too far though-you will want to be home in time for the big social you and your fam­ily or friends usu­ally en­joy at this time of the year. You should find your­self hav­ing a clear vi­sion into your own in­ner sense of val­ues, how you ap­pre­ci­ate and love. This is a good time to ex­am­ine and pon­der what is most im­por­tant to you. This should be a great time for new goal plan­ning. You may find new wis­dom and dis­cov­ery in or­ga­ni­za­tion and per­cep­tion. Social life is go­ing to in­crease in the next few days. Get plenty of rest and drink lots of wa­ter. If you have de­cided to move your res­i­dence, you could make that jump­start now-don't make any other jumps.

You could be think­ing about past loves and fun places from time-to-time to­day. Pay at­ten­tion to your chores or work dur­ing the day. The af­ter­noon is great for vis­its and re­laxed in­ter­ac­tion with co-work­ers or friends. Ask about recipe fa­vorites and re­quest that each per­son bring three recipes that their fam­i­lies en­joyed dur­ing the hol­i­day sea­son-share. Whether you are a cook or your spe­cialty is some other thing, some of these old fam­ily fa­vorites would be won­der­ful to have in an al­bum for all to en­joy and per­haps make ad­di­tions to from time to time. At the first of the year you may want to have a party for your co-worker friends and per­haps a lit­tle book­let of these recipes would help you start the year out with good connections, new friends, and a pos­i­tive aura. Miss­ing in­for­ma­tion is likely when some­one is in an ex­treme hurry-make sure it is not you that is in a hurry! To­day seems to be the type of day where ev­ery­body works to­ward get­ting things com­pleted. Be sure that you get all of the facts and be sure that you un­der­stand a sit­u­a­tion be­fore you be­come in­volved. This may not be the most op­por­tune day for mak­ing plans. It could be hard for you to fig­ure out the right move. Go with the flow and en­joy the day for the day's sake. You will find new op­por­tu­ni­ties to be sur­rounded by busy, happy peo­ple: shop­ping, gro­cery store er­rands, etc. You en­joy per­form­ing sim­ple acts of al­tru­ism. Make a do­na­tion to an or­ga­ni­za­tion to which you feel a kin­ship; for in­stance, if you are adopted, per­haps an adop­tion group, etc.

In youth, dis­ci­pline, econ­omy and prac­ti­cal­ity are stressed. You are cer­tainly dis­ci­plined and the peo­ple in your work­place put a great deal of trust in your pro­fes­sional ex­per­tise. If you find your­self work­ing to­day, you will be happy to know that some­one new and trust­wor­thy will be com­ing un­der your tute­lage. The hard work in be­com­ing ed­u­cated brings more re­mu­ner­a­tion your way as you re­al­ize you have a better un­der­stand­ing of hu­man na­ture. To teach, to ex­pand the knowl­edge of oth­ers, is a great ac­com­plish­ment and may be­come one of your goals this next year. You might want to think along the lines of en­ter­tain­ing be­cause you have a way with words and you could teach

through en­ter­tain­ing. Cel­e­brate tonight.

You are very clear­headed and able to view all of the al­ter­na­tive paths and are in a plan­ning mood. Go ahead and make those de­ci­sions. You can see the road ahead and will make the right choices. Some­one will un­der­stand just how you feel and be on your side to­day; you feel ap­pre­ci­ated and val­ued for your abil­ity to get things ac­com­plished. Along with your hu­mor, oth­ers may see your some­what ec­cen­tric na­ture. In a group ef­fort this af­ter­noon you can see a break­through in a few changes that may be needed around the of­fice. Ex­press­ing your thoughts may be better writ­ten out for a pre­sen­ta­tion at next month's meet­ing. It is a su­per time to be con­struc­tive with oth­ers and to work to­gether. Home life is a bash! One of your fam­ily mem­bers has a game ready. Your ca­reer may be quite dif­fer­ent next year. It is time to en­joy what you have learned and put it into ac­tion. All that ed­u­ca­tion, train­ing or ex­pe­ri­ence is pay­ing off. You are help­ing oth­ers and su­pe­ri­ors will soon be re­assess­ing and de­cid­ing the best place for you to be work­ing next. You may even have your own of­fice. There al­ways seems to be some­thing new or a new ex­pe­ri­ence just around the cor­ner. Keep mov­ing and mak­ing new goals; you are the for­tu­nate one. If you are con­sid­er­ing some type of man­age­ment or in­ves­tiga­tive work, you are the one that will dis­cover prob­lems and find the an­swer that could put a prob­lem right in no time, a true ben­e­fit. It would be good to count your

bless­ings to­day. Laugh­ter comes from young peo­ple this evening.
