Things are not going to make you happy right now -- so if you are feeling stressed out over something, retail therapy is definitely not the way to go. Sure, you'll feel powerful buying something shiny and new for yourself -- for a couple hours. Then, whatever you are avoiding dealing with will be right there again at the front of your mind. Tackle this thing up front and without hesitation. It will not be as bad as you think it will be. In fact, it might even be fun.
Take care of bills and accounts on Monday -- your head for tables and spreadsheets is good, and it's best to get that stuff done as soon as possible anyway. You are quite busy midweek, and most of your activities are fun and engaging, so it's good to have busywork behind you. After that, it's easier to become disappointed on Thursday and Friday, especially if things don't go exactly the way you want them to. Try to keep an open mind. The weekend is all about big ideas, and while you might not change the world, you should have a good time figuring it all out.
If, by any chance, you should happen not to get exactly precisely entirely what you want on the 1st, 2nd or 3rd, don't get moody. Don't pout. Don't whine. Don't decide nothing is ever going to work. Instead, do your best to figure out how to make the situation work for you. After all, sometimes serendipity provides you with something far better than what you thought you wanted. You are feeling fun and full of energy on the 6th and 7th. Use it! And have a good time while you're at it. You have way more control over a situation than you might think you do on the 12th and 13th. Exert it. Deep thoughts lead to wonderful ideas on the 16th and 17th. So, whether the topic is 'what should I do with my life?' or 'what gift should I get my Aunt Berta?' be sure to dwell on it. Be as clear as humanly possible in all your communications on the 19th and 20th. You're in pretty terrific shape on the fun, relaxed and very likely romantic 26th and 27th. Make a list of changes you want to implement in the New Year on the 28th, 29th and 30th. Get started on something great on the 31st!
