You're very sensitive to the problems of other people right now, which could cause you to get very distracted by things that are not your responsibility. This level of compassion for others is not healthy for you right now, so you need to find a way to extricate yourself from a few of the responsibilities you have taken on. You may think this is selfish, but it is not -- you've been putting the needs and wishes of other people over your own for too long. Work on your own problems.
Your brainy energy is the perfect antidote to any bad mood your friends are having early this week -- share your quirky ideas with them and watch their faces light up! It's also a good time to apply yourself to real-life problems. Your nostalgia takes a slightly darker turn through Friday, and you may want to focus on the present to avoid thinking too much about the past. Life gets a lot sweeter this weekend, as nearly everyone in your social circle seems willing to get along well for the sake of the group as a whole.
You could find yourself having a whole bunch of super creative urges on the 1st. You want to sing, paint, dance and create your very own front door wreath made out of locally sourced vegetation and found objects. Do it! By the low energy 4th and 5th, you need to take a step back and give yourself plenty of time for rest and relaxation. You and your daily routine might not be seeing eye to eye on the 8th, 9th and 10th. Like, you want to swim before work, only to find the pool is closed for unexpected repairs. Bummer! But don't let it throw you. You can duck out of work early (after coming in an hour ahead of schedule) and go to your favorite yoga class. Your great energy on the 15th, 16th and 17th has everything to do with your ability to respond quickly to changing circumstances. Give yourself a pat on the back! You deserve it. Don't worry: If you forget anyone on your gift list, that nagging little voice in your head will remind you on the 23rd and 24th. (It's useful, sometimes, that voice!) Life couldn't be better on the 25th, 26th and 27th. Wonderful news, wonderful people, wonderful food -- it's all there! Express yourself on the 30th and 31st! Then ring in the New Year.
