Comfortable? Good. Because you'll be interviewing potential partners for the next few days, and you'll need to give that tender task your full attention. Yes, it's a tough job. But heaven knows if anyone is up for tough jobs, it's you. Now settle down, pull out your yellow legal pad and your special pen, and get to work. Only so many hours are in a day.
This could be tricky -- the whole day, that is. The good news is you're entirely familiar with the concept of doing battle, so if someone tries to put one over on you, no matter who they happen to be, you absolutely won't stand for it. That goes double for anyone who thinks higher of their own authority than they really should. It might be time to take them down a peg or two.
Most of the planet doesn't deal well with change. Fortunately, you just love it. You're a living example of how great the ebb and flow of the universe can be. Keep those facts in mind today when you're trying to deal with others who aren't quite so open to last-minute modifications in their carefully planned schedules. They may not be kindred spirits, but they're fellow humans. Convince them to loosen up.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to navigate a very delicate situation: Tending to your family duties and satisfying your urge to climb the career ladder. Well, if anyone can do it, you can. Tenacity, after all, is your specialty -- even so, staying diligent may be trickier than usual. Not to worry: If you work your magic the way you always have, you'll pull it off.
You've done everything you possibly could to avoid having this conversation, but you're not on the planet alone. So while you won't relish having to say certain things, you can at least stop blaming yourself. Remember, you're only half responsible. It definitely takes two to tango, and today's dance is no exception. So say what you have to say, then move on with your life. The weekend looks great, by the way, so get over this rough spot and you'll have it made.
Don't take any guff from someone who thinks they have you over a barrel because they know your secrets -- and how badly you want to protect them. You happen to know something just as potentially volatile about your tormentor. Not that you'd really ever choose to say anything about it. But do make it clear you know what they're up to and you're not going to play their game. Not for a second.
Bet you're feeling a bit tired right about now, hmm? Especially if you were out and about last night, playing with your friends or perhaps your main squeeze. Well, grab yourself a power nap, because last-minute changes in your plans for the evening could mean you'll be up late once again. And if you can't fit in a nap? Oh, well. As the saying goes, 'You can sleep when you're dead.' But don't worry, a good night's rest is right around the corner.
It's an instant replay of yesterday, complete with every last stumbling block, barrier and impediment you could possibly have imagined -- as well as a couple you hadn't. You being you, however, these challenges will only sweeten the pot. You'll gladly jump through every hoop, navigate every obstacle on the course and do whatever it takes to get where you want to be. At that point, feel free to sit, relax and gloat.
As optimistic as you ordinarily are, there's one particular person out there who can bring you down, make you doubt yourself and others and set you to wondering if it's really at all worth the effort you've invested. Your mission, right now, is to avoid that person for at least the next 48 hours. It's not that you'll never see them again. But you need all the positive energy you can muster.
It might not be fun, and it probably won't go down in your mental scrapbook as the best on record, but once you've made it through this day, you'll feel really good about yourself -- as if you've accomplished something. So when it seems as if the universe is throwing everything but the kitchen sink between you and where you need to be, don't give up. Ever heard about testing what you're made of? That's what's going on -- and this is one test you're guaranteed to pass.
You've put everything you possibly could into making this thing work, but relationships can certainly develop minds of their own once they get going. Basically, for the past few weeks, you've been taking one step forward and two steps back. If you're not quite ready to end it, don't worry. It doesn't matter whether it's a friendship, a romance or a business connection, this partnership will wait until all conditions are absolutely right.
They can certainly try to put one over on you, but it's not going to work. You've come up with a brand-new approach to life -- 'just the facts, ma'am' -- and you're eager to try it out. So when someone comes to you for your opinion, you'll be happy to share it. Just try to be gentle. Today's buffet of astrological energies could leave you looking a bit more stern and uncompromising than you really are.
