Blow off some steam. Find con­struc­tive ways to oc­cupy your time and to burn up ex­cess en­ergy. Try to get to the bot­tom of a mis­un­der­stand­ing with a cool head rather than be­com­ing an­gry or start­ing an ar­gu­ment.

Diveright in. When­a­sit­u­a­tion­re­quires im­me­di­ate ac­tion, there’s no time to quib­ble over de­tails. This is a good day to play handyper­son by build­ing shelves, fix­ing aleak oraddin­gafresh­coatof­paint.

Do the math. Look over bank state­ments for er­rors and check store re­ceipts to make sure that you were charged the proper amount. You may be at odds with some­one whose head is in the clouds when you want cold, hard facts.

Stand your ground. Speak your mind if some­one says some­thing that you don’t agree with or if you find them of­fen­sive. Use the day off to tune up your body through a visit to the gym or en­gag­ing in sports.

As­sume con­trol. If a group is at a loss as to what to do next, take the reins and pro­vide de­fin­i­tive lead­er­ship. Vig­or­ous phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity could help work out the kinks that have built up over the past week.

Nick­els and dimes add up. Keep an eye on fi­nances, as mi­nor pur­chases made re­peat­edly over time can amass to cre­ate a big drain on the bud­get. You don’t have to spend a lot to please a loved one with a thought­ful gift.

Play sec­ond fid­dle. Some­one else may have in­ter­est­ing and ex­cit­ing ideas on how to spend the day. En­joy your­self by fol­low­ing their lead. Keep body and spirit in peak con­di­tion through good old­fash­ioned ex­er­cise. Plow ahead. The only way to get things done is to just roll up your sleeves and do them. When faced with tough de­ci­sions, don’t hes­i­tate to fol­low your first in­stinct and you’ll eas­ily make the right choice.

A voice from the past could break up the monotony. An old friend may drop by or call you up to shoot the breeze about the good old days. Find time to tackle those nag­ging household chores that have piled up.

All may not go as planned. Un­ex­pected visi­tors and an­noy­ing dis­rup­tions may pre­vent you from do­ing what you set out to do to­day. Pay­ing at­ten­tion to what some­one has to say may pro­vide some in­no­vat­ing in­sights.

No one can read your mind. Don’t ex­pect oth­ers to know what you have go­ing on un­less you take the time to ex­plain your plans. You may want to put a fi­nal de­ci­sion or im­por­tant com­mit­ment on hold un­til next week.

Ex­plore your artis­tic side. Find­ing creative and imag­i­na­tive out­lets to oc­cupy your time can prove both sat­is­fy­ing and stim­u­lat­ing. Do the things you en­joy do­ing, as busi­ness mat­ters or num­bers may seem bor­ing. Fo­cus on your fu­ture rather than im­me­di­ate grat­i­fi­ca­tion of your de­sires as the next three to four weeks un­fold. You may be quick to take of­fense, so stop and count to 10 be­fore you make a con­tro­ver­sial com­ment. De­cem­ber and early Jan­uary may be the very best time to put your am­bi­tions into ac­tion. That is when your shrewd ap­praisal of fi­nan­cial mat­ters can lead to larger prof­its and busi­ness suc­cess. You may be of­fered an op­por­tu­nity for ad­vance­ment in late Jan­uary or early Fe­bru­ary, which is in your best in­ter­ests to ac­cept. This is a time pe­riod when you are wiser than usual so are likely to make sound de­ci­sions and long term com­mit­ments.
