A great big dose of a different country's culture will be stimulating and fun -- so go out and investigate something foreign and new. Check out a show at an art museum, have dinner at an ethnic restaurant you've never tried before, or just listen to music from another country while you're driving, today. You might not understand everything you're seeing, hearing or eating, but so what? A little bit of confusion is awfully compelling sometimes.
Will you compromise or get combative at the beginning of the week? Finding a way to cooperate may still involve some conflict, but it's likely of the healthy, productive kind. From around Wednesday afternoon through the end of the workweek, you've got a stellar opportunity to go deeper -- delving into your own personal philosophy, forging better bonds with others, you name it. Your usual attention to detail may slip from Friday evening through the weekend, but maybe that's not such a bad thing. Relax and let someone else set the agenda, read the map or keep an eye on the time.
Your natural instinct is usually to give, give, give, then give some more. Whether you're helping take up the slack at work or you're lending your deadbeat cousin money when you go home for a weekend visit, you tend to do a lot (and sometimes a little too much) for others. On the 1st, make a concerted effort not to give, give, give. Instead, keep. And if you're feeling adventurous, take. It's crucial, after all, that you allow others to help you out too sometimes. Otherwise, you're not really letting them be close to you. By the 4th, 5th and 6th, you are in control. Want these to be good days? Make 'em that way. Everything is pretty wonderful (without you needing to lift a finger) on the stupendous 12th and 13th. Enjoy the heck out of it! By the how-did-you-wind-up-with-so-many-family-obligations 19th and 20th, you had better just go ahead and meet the obligations you signed up for, and make a mental note to commit to less next time. Nothing is set in stone on the 25th. Take time for a little soul searching on the 29th, 30th and 31st.
