Recent dramatic events in a friend or family member's life might be causing you to think more about the quality of your own life. You can learn from the choices that other people have been making -- in fact, it is one of the wisest ways to get your life lessons. Today is a great time to reflect on what has been going on and figure out how you want to deal with it. Do you have your priorities in the right order? Putting yourself toward the top of the list (if not at the very top) is a good idea.


If you've been looking for love, it's going to show up wrapped in packing material on your front porch on Monday, or it'll show up at your work, or at the coffee shop you stop into on a break. It'll show up and it'll be exciting. If you're not single, expect a bouquet of roses instead. Tuesday and Wednesday, buoyed by recent good tides, you itch to make a change. You feel bold and new. Thursday and Friday, relationships are a major theme. Best advice: Let bygones be bygones. This weekend, grab an ice cream, head to the park and leave your cell phone at home.


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.
