A day with more potential for emotional upset cannot be fathomed, nor a day with more opportunity! Tread carefully because emotions drive action; get a grip on yours. How you handle things makes all the difference. A shock is best solved by working on the problem rather than venting. A tactless [...]

Astrology for 9/8/2014

9/8/2014 Monday by Norma It’s very difficult to get moving today. If you must rise early, you’ll be in a daze until noon, or later. Pace yourself carefully between work and relaxation. Do one, then the other. If you snooze on the job, or try to work during your break, it won’t work! It’s a [...]

Emotions are triggered by an interaction early in the day. Stifle yourself until the moment passes. Listen politely to opinions with which you disagree, and be aware they are opinions, not facts.

You’re pulled in two directions and can’t make up your mind which to choose. Choose neither: do one, then the other, but don’t try to mix or combine them. It won’t work! A friend or group comes up with a great idea, accept it! Group matters go well, if undertaken early [...]

By mid-day people will have achieved success on the job, insulted a hard working person with a tactless remark, and offered something with uncommon generosity. After lunch, a brilliant idea changes the game. A new diplomatic strategy is introduced and diplomacy is afoot. “After you,” “No, after you,” people say to each other. [...]

A leader continues to perform semi-miracles; stand back and watch the fun. Or else step up and perform a few yourself. Success comes as a direct result of careful planning, research and attention to detail. It’s not possible to bluff your way through, so don’t try- the unprepared are sent to [...]
