Even though you're smack dab in the middle of a big project right now, it will be easier than you think to see that other areas of your life need your attention today. It might be necessary to rearrange your priorities so you can separate yourself from all the hectic energy growing around you. Better yet, delegate your responsibilities to a capable person who can serve as your substitute. You'll give yourself a break -- and give them a chance to soar.
A flirtatious game you've been playing might need to come to a sudden stop today, when a revelation in the late morning or early afternoon causes you to think twice about how far you want to take this. You might have thought things were heating up ... but in reality, you're playing with fire. Turn away from making connections with other people today -- devote some time to reconnecting with yourself. Indulge in one of your favorite treats.
Communication doesn't always have to involve talking or even writing ... nonverbal cues are just as important as verbal ones, so utilize some blatant eye contact to get your message across right now. Making connections with strangers could get you some surprise perks. Smile a little extra and flirt a little more, and you'll be amazed at the benefits. It could be upgrades, free extras or maybe just a sweet little ego boost. Reach out and make a new friend. It's all good.
Something that matters to you is in danger of veering wildly off track today ... and unfortunately, the cause will not be immediately obvious. So instead of wasting time trying to find the root of the problem, just jump right in and patch up the holes as fast as you can. This is a good time to take control and point things in the right direction -- perhaps the direction you wanted them to go in all along? Be bold ... don't worry about ruffling anyone's feathers.
If you're looking for a sign indicating that you're progressing in the right direction in your life right now, just look in the mirror. Don't waste your time looking for physical changes -- you won't find any. What you should be looking for instead is that subtle glow of confidence. Deep inside you, it's there. All you need to do is pull it out ... encourage yourself to see how gifted and special you are. Other people see it, and it's high time you saw it -- and believed it.
If you're looking for more time -- to finish a project, to meet with a friend or to have to yourself -- you find it today. A little creative juggling frees up the hours you need, or a surprise cancellation opens a big block of time. You're entering a very lucky phase of life, when things just seem to fall into place whenever you need them to. Expect to be in the right place at the right time for a very important announcement today.
Grab your most honest friend and lay some of your new ideas on them ... what do they think of your latest crush, your new wardrobe choices or where you want to go on vacation? This exchange isn't about you being insecure about your choices; it's about keeping people in the loop on what's going on in your life in a more inclusive way. People love to share their opinions and help their friends ... so ask for all the help you need today. You might get more than you bargained for!
Someone in your life is having a new beginning of sorts, and they're looking for your approval -- even though they may not admit it. You have influence over the people in your life, whether you realize it or not. So if you've seen any recent changes in someone around you (like a new wardrobe, some weight loss, a different haircut), let them know you noticed and be generous in your appraisal. People want to know that what they do makes a difference.
The lines between good and bad, honorable and deceptive, and truth and fiction are difficult to see today, so proceed with extra caution, especially where your heart is concerned. If something seems too good to be true, it's definitely something you should steer clear of. Charm and flattery are heaped on you by the boatload today, but they're probably being used to disguise a true purpose. Today is a good day to separate the good people in your life from the bad.
Don't look now, but one of the most valuable tools you have is getting rusty: your instinct. Why not pull it out and use it a bit more often? Sure, once or twice it might have steered you wrong, but didn't that detour lead you to something pretty important? Just because your instinct is fallible doesn't mean it's worthless. Listen to your gut. No matter where it takes you, it's the right place -- the place you need to get to.
Aren't you sick of holding onto those old grudges? Today you need to realize that it's okay to let go -- closure can be overrated. Are you keeping this event or person in your emotional bank account in the hopes that someday you can cash it in for a sense of revenge? That's no reason for it to take up valuable space in your heart. Get rid of the bad energy or memories by turning toward the future and not looking back. Make room in your heart for the new, positive forces coming your way.
You've spent so much time in the center of the action lately that it might be a smart move to step back and look at things from an outsider's perspective. Pretend you don't know the ins and outs of everyone you care about in your life ... how do these important people appear when you see them as strangers? This isn't an exercise in judging others -- rather, it's an effective way to remind yourself of how amazing the people in your life are. You're very lucky, and you need to know it.
