Jose Mari Chan to headline Christmas lighting at Ayala Center Cebu
You need to limit your choices—which you don’t like doing. It’s just one of those days when you’re better off with restrictions than without them, and you need to make sure that you’re sticking with the program. Trytogoeasyonthatcolleagueorfriendwho makes a mistake today—they certainly mean nothing by it, and the more you push, the more likely they are to dig themselves in even deeper!
You’ve got a serious drive for success today—whatever that means to you. It might meanadatewiththatnewhottie,apromotion at work or a new way to deliver health care to Africa, but you are on it!
You feel emotionally supported and ready for the next big thing—whatever that might be. You need to relax a little and let your good energy bring you back to earth, so you can start moving forward.
Watch out for bossiness—and not just from your boss! Surprising people in your life may stepupandtrytotakecharge,fromateenager to an old friend. They may think they know best, so set them straight. You need to chart a middle path between twoextremestoday—thoughthatmightnot be to your liking. It’s a good time for you to step up and lead by example, so the others around you can tell what’s right.
You know what you are capable of—great things, of course—and you know that you are being held back. Unfortunately, the only way forward is through a show of humility, and that’s hard on a day like today!

Reach back into the past to see what you can make of it—though some of it was painful, and some was unnecessary, all of it made you who you are, and you are more in touch with the good than with the bad.
You need to get busy on something—it is likely something that only you know much about.Onceyougetgoing,it’shardtostop,so make sure that you block out a lot of time for it.
Let someone else shake up your thinking today—preferably in a really deep way. Your energy is just right for re-evaluating your core beliefs, as you like to do every now and then.
You feel great—and it feels like this mood could last all day long! Your great energy is just right for finishing up long-term projects or getting others around you to give extra effort.
