There will be a bit of a power struggle going on early today, so you will have to keep your eye on the ball in order to win. No matter who wins the battle technically, you want the prize. You deserve some major recognition, but you're not going to get it if you stay wrapped up in some petty squabble or competition. You have to rise above this and focus on what is right for you, not on keeping that other person from getting it, too. Stop paying so much attention to others and pay more attention to yourself.
It's important to say thank you -- not just to others out of courtesy, although that's always nice, but to yourself and the universe at large for all the loveliness, large and small, that you encounter every day. Use the first part of the week to be consciously grateful for things like a particularly speedy commute, the joke your grandmother tells you and the fact that your dry cleaner found your watch in your pants pocket. The last part of the week is a good time to get domestic. The more you feel grounded, the better off you are. Seeking balance is your task over the weekend.
What's the best way for you to network on the 1st? Why, over a delicious meal in the company of dear friends. That's right: If you need (or just want) to make a career change, your nearest and dearest are your best resources. They know you and value you and they will have some surprising ideas that could fit your skill set to a 'T.' And a good dinner always makes you feel great. You are all about fun and beauty and romance and adding something extra special to everything you do on the creative and sensual 5th and 6th. Somebody special notices, and really appreciates your efforts. Your philosophical approach can do a tense situation a world of wonders on the 11th and 12th. Well, you always have had a head for insight. By the 18th and 19th, you should definitely overcome any shyness and confide in your friends. They want to know how you are doing, and they can really offer some meaningful emotional support. Good luck, great friends and a couple of generally beautiful days make for a wonderful 22nd and 23rd. Another dinner party (or two) could open new possibilities for you on the 27th and 28th. You're right on the 29th and 30th -- be gracious about it.
