You are likely to feel quite peaceful now and to be in a rather compromising and harmonious spirit and attitude and you may attract others now more than usual as they may become attracted to your accepting, graceful and accommodating manner. Your financial scenario may either be changing a little for the better or you may have a perception of that pending possibility. You may have a greater tendency now to desire sweet things and to take in more calories if you are not careful to avoid that. You may not feel very physically active at this time in that your present disposition is more inclined towards socializing and the arts or entertainment. This should prove to be a good time for socializing and/or entertaining.
You may be rather uncertain about your financial life at this time - it is probably best to suspend any decisions around that facet of your life until later when you have more certainty about that concern - it especially important that you take heed in respect to any intuitions that you have now in regard to anyone trying to deceive you about financial concerns. You may feel the need to make small personal sacrifices out of love and compassion for another at this time. Beware of getting involved in any type of romance now that "necessitates" a "behind the scenes" secrecy based scenario as that could be very much to your own undoing.
You may experience this period as brings an element of confusion into your working life or career. This will likely not be the best time to try to make a cognitive, non-intuitive decision and that may be simply due to your not seeing all the elements that should be ultimately considered. In respect to your working life or career, deception may come into play and thus it may be important to be careful, based on what is only apparent, not to make conclusions too quickly - that is, what is indicated to you may not be the ultimate reality. If you begin to feel, at moments, a little lethargic or even discouraged about the substance and nature of your work, it is best to ease up a bit and try to relax, let go a bit and get more rest at present - it is not very likely a time in which you will benefit by pushing yourself to an unusual degree, regardless of extra incentives to do so. Self-identity, perhaps as a result of factors in your working life, as opposed to your more personal life, may become an issue, so it may be important to keep in mind that what you do is not necessarily your personal essence and therefore equations as to who you are may be falsely drawn at this time if you do try to define yourself through your career or working life. In respect to your general perception of the world and particularly where decisions are attempted now, it may be best to use your intuition, especially where "logic" or the "rational" perspective regarding decisions doesn't seem to be very facilitating. In other words your subconscious mind or your intuition may have more significant bearing on what is anticipated in respect to your future.
You may find that your thinking becomes more expansive at this time - you may be more interested in places and cultures that are different than your own. Your mind is in more of a learning mode than usual and as well as being more mindful of cultural differences you may have a heightened drive to learn at this time. There may be a very strong urge to travel - thus plans may be made accordingly now. You may connect and correspond with another who is at a great distance from yourself or who may have a significantly different cultural background. You may not be as apt to pay attention to details now so being deliberately more mindful of things that you might overlook might serve to counterbalance that possibility.
At this time the focus will largely be on relationships. Important issues involving your need to make compromises or accommodations for your close relationships or partnerships may form in your consciousness now. Because the accent is on others at this time, it will not likely be of any benefit to you to be in an significant state of social withdrawal or seclusion. You may simply experience this time as one in which you are "compelled" to give your one-to-one relationships some significant focus and this may definitely include meeting "the other" half way. Personal vanity is particularly subject to downfall at this time because this is especially a time when the "required" focus and consideration is on "the other" as opposed to yourself. You may have to place your own vanities and drives aside for the time being and lend time and energy to another for his or her benefit. Even if you are not directly involved in taking special measures in supporting another it is likely that you will at least have to curtail your own drives and purposes in respect to your need to consider how another's needs may not be sufficiently met if due consideration from you is not given - it is important to keep in mind now that life is a two-way street.
Your thoughts and general awareness may shift more to the external, outer world now and that could certainly include a greater awareness of others. Your thoughts are more likely to be in an "objective" mode now and judgments regarding your outer world may come easier now and perhaps more intuitively. You may be significantly more prone to forming agreements, with others now, especially where that may pertain to business interests. This should prove to be a good time for compromise and negotiation and there will likely be more communication with others at present. A close relationship may increase in it's communication aspect. Partnership issues in business or marriage may arise now. This is not a time when thoughts will remain internal to yourself - confidences may be gained at this time.
You may find yourself to be a little less energetic and less motivated in respect to getting practical things accomplished at this time - ideas about action are good but real implementation may be called for - include practicality . In that sense the mental energy available for daily tasks may be slightly compromised but there may be a simple solution in going inwards and engaging in some type of process of introspection or meditation so that if there is a spiritual or an emotional concern in the deeper areas of your mind there that your subconscious is trying to deal with then your mental energy may be in a sense freed up, for more "focused" practical, mundane purposes, after introspection or meditation. Taking "cap naps" is also another means of means of freeing up mental energy and motivation by way of shutting down your conscious mind temporarily so that you can gain access to your subconscious or intuition which state of consciousness may ask for a quite different means of processing or approaching daily issues or practical concerns at this time in your life. Maintain adequate levels of protein intake as well as eating fruit may become important now in order to maintain your physical energy levels and to maintain your blood sugar level - alcohol may have more of a debilitating affect on your energy system at this time and so, currently, may not be advisable. Nor is it advisable to compromise on the amount of sleep you get now as that need may be stronger now if you are not feeling as energetically driven as usual. There may be a tendency for you to be less focused on details now than you might usually be but on the other hand you may be more attuned to creative methods of dealing with daily tasks at this time and your use of intuition in respect practical thinking, as opposed to using "hard analysis" may prove to be more to your advantage due to unforeseeable contingencies. Compassion is suggested in relation to those with whom you work or deal with on a daily basis even if those practical interactions do not involved formal working relationships - stay flexible and be willing to compromise and allow for "imperfections."
You may experience phenomena now that are not so much mysterious but which seem to be, in appearance, not what they turn out to be, in reality. This may not prove to be the best of times for purchasing things that appear beautiful but which are functionally unproven, such as an automobile - be careful how objects are presented to you and be careful in respect to those who represent things that might have a suspicious or dubious aspect or quality. You may feel more prone to expressing yourself in an artistic or creative way now and you might find yourself attracted to entertainment, such as movies, exotic restaurants and the like. As well, you may be more drawn to music at this time. Appearances may be, in some measure, stronger than reality now and your own or another's "persona," or social "mask" may become far more "the focus' than the real person behind the mask. Be careful in the romantic department at present as things may not turn out to be like what they may, at first, appear to be. Look for the truth behind the apparent social grace that is presented to you now and if you feel that motives may be masked or agendas hidden then proceed with extra caution or make an exit entirely. Water activities and recreation, such as swimming, water skiing and the like may come into play now.
At this time you should be very careful about what you decide to spend your money on as the indications are that you could, if you are not careful about the value or worth of a significant purchase, experience real disappointment and loss - this does not have to be the case but in order to minimize the possibilities of financial loss or disappointment in respect to values, be careful. You may have a tendency at this time to ponder your personal values, at least in the sense of considering what has priority in your life and what is of real and critical importance to you. It would be a good time to evaluate the ultimate worth of what you possess and what your priorities are in the secular sense. Being very honest with yourself and using a spiritual basis for consideration and evaluation may be quite important.
You may engage in an unusual amount of short trips in your local environment at this time. Communications will probably also be significantly on the rise as there will likely be a need to coordinate yourself with others now in relation to all your extra "running around," that is, in your short trips, here and there, to get small practical tasks and short term projects done. It may be important now to make an effort to avoid getting caught up in idle and passing conversations that amount to nothing really more than passing distractions. Stay focused on the practical work and responsibilities that you have in front of you and try to prioritize those activities which have the most importance - this may be quite important, given the temporary juggling act that you have to perform now.
It is likely that your mind will now begin to focus on your material resources, personal assets and finances. Your mind will tend more towards practical thought now and - you may find yourself doing some financial planning. This may also be a time in which you are more inclined to think of your body - even if you don't act on your assessment of your physical condition it will likely register now that you are either feeling OK with your physical shape or that your shape is in need of attention.
You may be more concerned about your finances and money in general, than usual now. That may be, in part, because you are also more attracted to objects of beauty now than you typically are. In fact even artistic things will probably hold a greater attraction for you than usual and that will likely include the dramatic arts as well as physical objects. In short, you are not in your most practical mode at this time - and that may cause you to spend more money than you should. It might be a good idea to try to curb your desire nature to some degree now. In any case, you will probably indulge in and enjoy some harmless pleasures more than usual now but try to apply some moderation, especially in relation to food, such as pastries, as you are probably a little more inclined to gain weight now.
