There's so much going on right now that you might feel like you're being pulled in too many directions -- but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. And where there is hope, there is happiness! So while you'd rather spend today going off and exploring all the fun things that are open to you, it's just not smart when you are this close to being done with all your boring duties. Power through today and get to that light at the end of the tunnel. You'll be glad you did.
Your unique style inspires quite a few followers from time to time, which is flattering. But does the way you dress give people the wrong impression about who you really are? Your genuine personality will shine through better if you spend more time thinking about how you come across verbally than how you come across sartorially. You'll be able to stop wasting so much time correcting the mistaken assumptions people make about you based on how you look.
Despite your most fervent hopes and wishes, people do not do exactly what you want them to do. This is especially true in matters of the heart. If you are crushing on someone big time but they just don't seem interested, you've got to let go and move on. Think of it this way -- by wasting time with this person, you are forcing the person who actually is perfect for you to wait longer than they have to! Moving on isn't all about leaving someone behind. It's about greeting your destiny.
If you experience some friction with an authority figure today, stand tall. Don't let them intimidate you. They aren't any smarter than you are, they just know things that you don't know -- and there is a difference between the two situations. As long as you are polite, you can be insistent in defending what you think. Your input is valuable even when it's not exactly welcome, so don't you dare apologize for voicing your dissent. Even if you're wrong, at least they know that you care.
You're a wise person who doesn't bend to the pressures of others. And you need to keep up this independent philosophy today, when some coworkers may try some not-so-subtle tactics to sway your opinion. Stay true to your original intentions no matter how much these folks flatter or cajole you. You are the one in the driver's seat, and what you say goes. In the end, it's your reputation that you must protect. Limit your time with people who don't respect that.
You have the power to ease someone else's tension today. Simply by letting them have a little more control over things, you can cool their increasingly hot temper and kill any combative energy that's swirling around. This angry person needs to feel busy and more useful, so when you give them this power they will respond very well. But if you insist on doing absolutely everything yourself, you will inevitably get involved in an ugly power struggle with them.
Today, if you ache for a slower pace to your life, you need to seek out more face to face communications. Skip the emails and the text messages -- the technology makes things easier, but it doesn't help you accurately convey what you're really trying to say. And you do need to say something very important to someone special, don't you? So wait until you can get one-on-one time with this person. You need to look into their eyes when you tell them your news.
Whenever things are not going exactly the way you want them to, you need to start getting creative about your expectations. But you also have to know when to stand your ground and not give in -- not even an inch. Today, speak up if you just can't go along with what everyone else is saying or doing. Sometimes the only way to get people to listen to you and respect what you say is to force them to. A quiet word to the right person will get you the satisfaction you need.
If you're working on starting or strengthening a romance today, bear in mind that a whisper will help you get your message across a lot more effectively than a loud scream. Amplifying your voice will not amplify their affection for you -- in fact, it could have the opposite effect. If you want to get intimate with someone, you have to get more intimate in your tone and demeanor. Turning down the noise will, in actuality, help you turn up their interest in you.
Little details like names and dates are overwhelming for you today, and you're getting a bit behind on the task of keeping track of them. But do not worry -- if you get on the ball and work out an organizational scheme in the morning, you'll get everything done and still have a little bit of time to make sure that you stay sane. Socially, you may have double booked yourself -- given how busy you've been lately, you might want to cancel both dates and take some time alone to relax.
Be careful not to relax too much today -- if you let down your guard too much, you could start falling back into a bad pattern of behavior. You worked too hard to get to where you are now, so don't let yourself slide. Self discipline can be tough when you're on your own, so if you feel yourself succumbing to temptation, try the buddy system. Meet up with a friend and spend your day with them -- and away from whatever it is that you know isn't good for you!
The weather will affect your mood greatly today, so keep an eye on the sky! When the sun is shining brightly up in the sky, all will be well -- and your confidence will be strong. But when the clouds roll in, you could be in for an unpleasant phase of boredom or general grumpiness. So if you expect that an argument could be looming, make sure the sun is shining when you have it. And if it's not, then try to put this conflict-filled conversation off for another day.
