Grab your whistle, zinc oxide and flotation device before you head out the door this morning, because you'll end up being a very valuable lifeguard for the people in your life. There will be some sharks swimming the waters today, and an unsuspecting friend may need your words of warning to keep from getting dragged under. Your critical eyes have perfect 20/20 vision today, so look around for other trouble spots. Protecting the people you love is part of who you are.
Your intuition and your reason are working well together on Monday and Tuesday, and you ought to be able to figure out what's really going on despite a dearth of evidence. Keep an open mind for as long as possible! Your family needs you during the second half of the week, and you should make yourself as available as possible once work obligations are taken care of. You shouldn't have cause to regret it -- in fact, this weekend may bring a delightful and unexpected reward from someone close to you.
If you wake up on the 1st and realize that you have totally overscheduled this first day of the year, take action! Cancel plans! After all, there is no time like the present to start re-assessing your commitments! Like, if you have no desire to meet friends of friends for brunch, why did you agree to do it? Even if you agreed, it's not too late to say 'no.' Call them and tell them you're over-extended, so you can't join them. Doesn't being honest with yourself and others feel good? By the pretty terrific 2nd and 3rd, you'll really start seeing the benefits of all this truth-telling and being honest with yourself. Namely: You have more energy for the things you want to do! Try your best to go through things slowly on the 8th and 9th. Nothing is as set in stone as it seems on the 15th and 16th, so be sure to leave yourself room to maneuver. Talk a little philosophy over an intimate dinner in an exotic locale on the 19th, 20th or 21st, and you'll be doing everything exactly right. Yeah! You love helping people, so go ahead and give in to your giving impulses on the 24th, 25th or 26th. You end this month on a really, really high note on the 29th and 30th.
