There are certain days when you're just plain old lucky, no matter who you're with or what you do. This is your day to be lucky. Now, this doesn't mean you should take off for a day of skydiving or motorcycling at 120 mph down the freeway, but if you've been thinking about getting to know someone new and you're feeling a bit on the not-so-brave side about starting up a conversation, think about that luck and use it.
If you're asked to make a donation, buy something whose proceeds will go to a nonprofit organization, or contribute your time to a worthy cause, you'll be only too happy to do it now, and you really should. You'll be happy with what you've done and who you've helped, and you'll feel good about it for days to come. Just be sure someone who sees a soft heart -- and a bank account -- does not take advantage of you.
Be careful to think before you speak today, because you could be letting a secret out without meaning to. In fact, if you're not sure that you've been authorized to talk about a certain issue, don't utter one single peep. Walk away and think about it -- or, better still, talk to whoever confided in you. That way, you'll be absolutely sure, and you won't have to risk anyone being angry about it.
Your feelings about a certain situation, probably involving a family member or an old and dear friend, will absolutely need to be expressed right now. Fortunately, you're ready to let them out -- and they're ready to hear it all. So when the time comes and you're asked about what you think of a certain situation, even if it means being a referee of sorts, don't hold back. There are ways to say what's on your mind without offending anyone, and you're familiar with them all.
Dreams, nostalgia and thoughts of how great things used to be are on your mind now, and they're having a powerful effect on you. Before you get too swept up in all that sentimentality, be sure you're remembering everything correctly -- with your mind, not just your heart. If you're in doubt, talk to a friend who understands you and knows what's really going on in your life. Experience is a great teacher.
Your first impulse will be to say exactly what's on your mind now, and that might be the best thing. On the other hand, if there's any way you can count to 10 before you reply, that might not be a bad idea, either. Being sure of what you say before you say it is a good thing, as is making sure you don't hurt anyone's feelings without meaning to -- and you'd never mean to do that.
The family members you've been trying to help out will finally realize what you've been up to, and believe it or not, you may even hear a thank you or two. In the meantime, keep doing what you've been doing. Sit back, operate quietly from behind the scenes and don't share any secrets you don't absolutely have to share. Once they find out what you've done, they'll be extra sweet to you.
Be careful with your money matters now: others will try to take advantage of your soft heart and compassion for others. Before you sign anything -- anything at all -- have someone you know and love look it over for you, and don't let your heart sway your mind. Your friendship is the best gift of all.
Your daily routine will keep you quite busy. In fact, you really shouldn't count on your schedule turning out even close to the way you'd expected it to. You'll be busy, there's no doubt about that, but you'll also be dealing with pleasant and unexpected situations that come up at the last moment. Instead of being upset about it, enjoy the break in the routine. You'll end up meeting someone wonderful you never would have met otherwise.
Higher-ups will be especially helpful to you now -- but it won't seem that way at first. In fact, you probably won't know what they're talking about when they first broach the issue, no matter how hard they try to explain it to you. The good news is that if you force them to go over the situation with you, they'll be able to see the problems and what's confusing about it. Go ahead and ask.
The folks you've been associating with for months now will be only too happy to back you up, no matter what you need or when you need it. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, will be to agree to let them help you and to swallow your pride. You can do it, and think of how good they'll feel about themselves after they've realized you've actually let someone help you, for a change.
Your dreams will be especially prophetic now, so try to remember them when you wake up. In fact, this wouldn't be a bad time to start up a dream journal. Keeping track of what your mind does while you sleep can help you figure out what's going on in the real world. And, at the very least, you'll end up knowing a bit more about yourself. Get out your pen and pick up a brand-new journal.
