You see the world through the eyes of love. Instead of smoldering, come-hither stares, though, your view is clear-headed, realistic and forgiving. The mood runs more toward companionship than ardor. Siblings set aside their rivalry to lose themselves in something they both enjoy. Couples attending a party together feel like working the room separately, and meeting up later to share gossip. Beware of a tendency for overindulgence, especially among those who already have enough. Good, solid exercise grounds you in your body if there was any danger of floating away into unreality. Let common sense do all the talking.
You shouldn`t have to decide anything now. Major issues can wait until next week, and someone else can handle the little things. You`re off duty, and you plan to stay there. What you need now is brain candy. Relax with a good mystery novel, or find a date that`s willing to join you for a mindless blockbuster movie. You might be making a wide detour around fun with a purpose, but no matter how irresponsible you get, some greater good will come out of it. Your subconscious is hard at work on a problem even while you`re at play.
Logical types enjoy challenging their usual process. Nonlinear thinking sets you on a different course. But is different the same thing as better? The answer is yes if you believe that change is good. Your intellectual equal is paralleling your course step by step. This is more about coincidence than imitation. Maybe you were destined to find each other. Maybe your free wills just happen to be in sync. The synergy of special people like you can produce powerful results. You should be happy where you end up, together or alone, by the end of the day.
You wake up with one foot in another place, and you never quite return to normal. The shreds of an unsettling dream might cling to you as the hours pass. Even if this is something you can put into words, it`s a subject with limited appeal. Maybe it`s best to remain silent. Partners or friends seem distant, no matter who put the distance between you. Their experience is very different from yours. When you think about it, no two people will ever fully know each other. To help with your focus, spend some of your day in or near water.
If you`re not currently a student, fond memories of that time are coming back to you. Pick up your local college or university extension catalog and envision yourself in some of the classes they`re offering. For those with a true hunger for knowledge, there are many ways to get it. Free advice is acceptable as long as you consider that the content may reflect the price. There are also the lessons of experience. Picture how your life would be if you were living it exactly this way but in a different country. The image is almost better than the reality might be.
Maybe home is so much fun that you hate to leave it for anything else. Maybe your worldly enjoyment is tainted by the discomfort of not being at home. For those at work, jobs feed the ego and belly. For those spending time with their primary group, families feed the heart and spirit. These poles may be opposite, but they don`t have to be at war with each other. You`re old and wise enough to strike a balance between what might otherwise be mutually exclusive. It`s your life, after all and you get to arrange it in a way that works for you.
It`s so easy to internalize career problems, especially if you have the day off and your mind is free to wander. If you give in to self-criticism, you`ll make yourself miserable in no time. So what if you desperately need a change of career venue? Your livelihood isn`t a reflection of your humanity. Most of the people you meet on the outside care more about what`s inside your head than what hat you wear. And, just like wardrobes, reputations can be changed bit by bit, if you don`t have it in you right now for a full makeover.
You think you`re on top of the latest developments, but there`s always something else beckoning you from just slightly ahead of the curve. New technology promises to make your life easier, once you figure out how to pay for it, install it and phase out the thing it`s replacing. A series of changes like this will take your life on a different course. And if you chose this way, it has to be better, doesn`t it? Make sure that you`re not leaving your old friends behind. Call or email someone who`s been on your mind lately.
Ambition can be a good thing when you`re balanced and ready to act. Set yourself a model first thing in the morning and check in tonight to see how closely you`ve followed it. In the meantime, confidence and charm will carry you. These things are far from mindless, though. You`ve been studying the background material, and you know all your lines by heart. You also know just who will help you and you have a pretty good idea of his or her price. As long as things go your way, you can afford to be generous.
Nothing gets past you. Your mind is sharp and present. You know where everything is and who`s doing what. It`s not as if you possess extra senses. You just have a good memory for facts, images and sounds that no one else is able to catalogue. This is your nature. When others think of you, they think of all the details at your command. You`re more than just a data warehouse, though. You can do many things with what you have. Spend time working with brushes, pencils or musical instruments and see how your inner life plays out in a different medium.
