The amusement you feel watching someone else struggle isn't necessarily a bad thing! As long as you are supportive and not hurting their progress, you can react to what you see however you want to! Censoring how you truly feel is the same thing as lying, so don't make yourself act a certain way just because you think society dictates it. That's not who you are.
A power struggle? Where did this come from? This is about the last thing you need right now. Some people take themselves so seriously. You don't have the energy to compete with people's egos, not right now. So early in the week you may find yourself giving in to someone, simply because you don't feel like the battle is worth fighting. (And by the way, you're right.) Share your frustrations with your friends. They'll completely understand. And they'll help you deal with it. Their humor is perfect for forgetting obnoxious people, and their loyalty to you is absolute.
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.
