Your charm will be your greatest asset today, so unleash your brightest smile whenever you can. And try to keep smiling even if things become less than pleasant. The little mountains you climb every day are life's way of keeping you on your toes, so do not let yourself get frustrated if the same old issues keep popping up. Getting things settled once and for all requires continued effort. You just have to keep plugging away—and then annoyances will go away.
Are you starting to feel overwhelmed? It's time to swallow your pride and ask for the help you know you need! Most people are flattered when they are asked to step in and lend a hand, and the people around you are ready and waiting to be asked. Don't think of it as burdening someone else with your problems—think of it as flattering someone by asking for their valuable insight. It is all in how you spin it, and you have more than enough charm to spin things the right way.
Someone's ambiguous comments will start to get on your nerves today—why won't they just come out and say what they mean? If you want to get to the truth about what they think, then today you need to come right out and ask them. They might be surprised by your boldness, but they can't deny that they are wasting your time. If they still clam up, then it's a sure sign that they are not worth the patience you are spending them. It may be time to move on as soon as you can.
Put some more effort into your career today, and get ready to do the work you've been putting aside. It's a good idea to assess your current situation and think about whether or not it may be time to set your sights a bit higher. Remember that your boss is a human being, and sometimes a simple casual conversation can lay the foundation for your future. But before you initiate any type of dialogue, formulate your plans. Start by organizing a list of your recent accomplishments.
Secrets are being shared today, although what you hear may not surprise you too much. Try to stay in the role of 'listener' instead of 'spreader.' You would not want to get a reputation for divulging things that no one wanted you to divulge—no matter how delicious they may be! Remember to sprinkle a healthy dose of skepticism over whatever you hear, and if you worry that someone is in for a big fall in the heart department, just let it happen as it should. Don't get involved.
Your analytical skills are good for business dealings and financial matters, but you most certainly cannot employ them in any of your love or social relationships right now. If you only see things in black and white, you will miss out on important shades of gray that help define who the people in your life really are. People are complicated, and you can't make any assumptions—especially today, when drawing false conclusions could hurt your chances for a much sought-after invitation.
If there is a person in your life who you are getting a bit sick of, or someone who is just plain outstaying their welcome, today is the day to (gently and diplomatically) tell them what you are feeling. Let your compassion guide you through this potentially tricky conversation. Listen to what they say. Right now, you need to cut out whatever is holding you back in your life—and the added stress this person could be causing definitely qualifies.
If your life were a boxing match (and your opponent was complacency), you have definitely won this latest round! Congratulations—now, get back to your corner and regroup for the next round. It is going to be a continuing struggle not to let yourself get bored or distracted right now. This lack of stimulation will continue for a while, and although you might be trying your darndest to find a suitable challenge for your intellect, you won't have any luck. Just keep trying to stay focused!
Your mind will be focused on the future today, and you will be able to make one quick fix that creates a much easier path for you to follow in the future. It's usually wise to take new journeys slowly, but if you feel like putting the pedal to the metal on your latest adventure, then go for it! You can always trust your own judgment. So if you are prepared for the consequences of taking the easy way out, there is nothing wrong with doing just that.
If you are going to be near or among any children today, you will be able to feed off their boundless energy and discover a new, goofier side of yourself. But if getting in some time with the kids isn't entirely feasible right now, you don't have to leave your silly side behind. Pick up a pack of your favorite bubble gum, wear your comfiest pair of sneakers, watch some cartoons, and inject some childlike behavior into your otherwise serious-minded day.
If you find yourself bored today, it is a sign that you need to make a few changes in your life. These could be simple changes in your routine, but it is probably more effective to make some complex changes in one of your closest relationships. Some strange cross-communication has been going on, and it might be time for you and this person to figure out what exactly you are doing in each other's lives. Do you two really have enough in common to continue? All relationships don't last forever.
Someone you deal with on a daily basis has been looking out for your best interests, and will tell you about something you should know today. This insider information will help you avoid merely taking the path of least resistance and will enable you to take a deliberate path. You'll be armed with the facts (which you will soften with your charm), although what you have to tell people might not be well-received. If they can't face the consequences of their actions, that's their problem.
