This period allows you to improve upon or make revisions in your career or business endeavors. Situations arise which demand that you examine your present work methods, and if necessary, release old concepts and ideas that are no longer serving your purpose. This will be a time of transition in your chosen profession or creative pursuits. For example, you might be in-between jobs or in search of alternative outlets to enhance your skills and talents. Or if you are in college or receiving academic training, you may modify or change your studies in mid-stream.
You are feeling inspired creatively and romantically and you express your loving feelings quite openly now. Creative self-expression of any kind is favored at this time. You will also thoroughly enjoy artistic, musical, or cultural events and activities, especially in the company of a loved one. Self-consciousness, anxiety about public images or reputation, and/or a greater concern for the packaging than the contents are some of the less positive possibilities for you at this time. You are apt to be rather attractive and appealing, particularly at the work place or in your professional role. Be careful not to take advantage of this for it could backfire. On a more pleasant note, an inviting atmosphere at work and appreciation for work well done is indicated. You could make some new contacts too, which would be good, except for the caution cited above.
You should use caution in dealing with contracts, documents, and written communications. You can encounter difficulties in your negotiations with business associates, relatives, and partnerships. There may be a need for a mediator or counselor to be called in to settle controversies and disputes. There can be unfavorable responses to your creative or analytical ideas. A co-worker or boss may be in direct competition with you on a project and you encounter strife and rivalry.
Expect a certain amount of friction in your domestic life at this time. Challenges and disturbances at home make you feel less important or neglected now. Others may not respect or pay homage to your authority and direction during this period. Your own personal responsibilities and duties may be so all-consuming that little time is left for planning fun activities with your family. Brush up on your nurturing skills to prevent hurt feelings now.
This is a good time to schedule social activities or even business meetings where tact and friendliness would be a plus. You act as a diplomat and harmonizer between people with differing viewpoints. Also, attending cultural events such as an art show or a play is favored. Thoughts of love, an appreciation for beauty, and an aesthetic enjoyment of your surroundings are brought to the fore. A short pleasure trip would also be beneficial now.
You want to be stimulated by new ideas and experiences in your mental exchanges with partners, associates and close friends. Others will lend support for your creative and career desires, offering assistance and beneficial advice to you. There is an easy flow of communication with others, focusing on intellectual, rather than intimate or emotional, interrelating. You seek companionship that inspires you and have a tendency to put romantic passion on the back burner for now.
Entertainment and amusements that are mentally challenging, such as chess, crossword puzzles, or other word games, have a strong appeal to you now. You will also enjoy dramatic presentations, the theater, creative writing and, if you have natural leanings in any of these areas, you will be inspired with ideas for future creative projects. This is a time to take in information which can be of real practical assistance to you in reaching a significant long-range goal. Some news may reach you which will create some minor distress and compel you to re-examine or reassess a position you have taken regarding your career or work in the world. Don't try to force issues or come to any definite conclusions now and don't sign any contracts which require too much compromise on your part. Simply gather information and, if necessary, delay direct negotiations.
You are very bold and adventurous right now and you cannot tolerate delays, restrictions, or any form of authority that prevents you from behaving exactly as you please. Your drive for personal freedom and insistence on your rights is pressing, and a confrontation in which you have to stand up for yourself is likely. Rashness, sudden acts of anger or violence, and a tendency to try to do too much too fast are tendencies you need to carefully monitor at this time.
Communications are excellent now. You come across clearly and present yourself articulately. Public speaking, interviews, and other transactions with the public are favored. Conversations you have at this time go smoothly, and an agreement can be reached. Personal gains may come through professional or influential connections in your business life. Therefore, make certain you put your energies and service at their disposal. Cooperation, devotion to your work obligations, and a spirit of enthusiasm may bring some type of recognition or reward for your efforts. All business or legal matters, as well as travel and academic interests, appear more promising at this time. You may be in an optimistic and expansive mood which increases your vitality and brings you maximum efficiency and productivity on the job.
Selfishness, jealousy and emotional game-playing make marital or romantic relationships unsettled during this time. Problems brought on by conflicting ego drives and divided loyalties in your relations may cause you to struggle to retain your individuality. This is a time when you will become aware of exaggerated differences between you and your partner. There is a likelihood that you and your mate will battle for top position in the relationship, thereby creating barriers to your growth and development as a couple.
Fateful encounters which are not altogether pleasant are indicated. If you are in an established intimate relationship, it is apt to be rough sailing right now. Ultimatums, bringing up past pain and unresolved issues, jealousy, or unusual neediness or possessiveness may all be part of the scenario, and what makes all of this quite stressful is that most of it is not blatant but subtle and insidious. Indiscretion and poor judgment in matters of the heart need to be guarded against.
This is a favorable time for love and marital relationships. You and a mate or lover can have the opportunity to enjoy mutual interests and find satisfactory solutions to any problems that might arise now. You will want your loving companion to be there for you, to share in your ups and downs, and to show loyalty and commitment to the relationship. You expect the same devotion and affection which you lavish on your mate to be fully reciprocated now. Entertaining in your home or hosting an event or party with your mate or spouse would be rewarding to you. If you are currently unattached, this period may feature a brand-new love attraction whom you may meet during a social gathering.
Your plans and ideas are subject to radical revisions, significant changes, and forced adjustments. Something you had counted on may suddenly disappear. You are also apt to hear a totally unsuspected side about someone or something. While possibly distressing, this news nevertheless puts pieces together for you which were missing before. Also, you may be dealing with behind-the-scene matters, subtle political maneuvers, or Machiavellian tactics.
