Today is a calming Ox day as the month of November draws to a close. Are you ready for December?
With great ambitions comes great responsibility. Everybody wants the status and authority but think about whether or not you also want to handle the responsibility that would come with attaining a certain position. If you realise that you are not fully aware of all the duties that come with authority, maybe you need to re-think about what you really want.
There could be a lot more to a certain situation than meets the eye. It is not the case that anybody is deliberately trying to hinder your efforts by deliberately obscuring vital information from you. It is more like you are trying to unravel a knotty ball of string. See if you can find some hidden wisdom in order to understand a rather convoluted situation.
It’s quite rare that something makes you feel a little bit cautious and hesitant. Your Tiger personality is quite gung-ho and will tend to act first and ask questions later. See any hesitancy as being the right way to behave today because where you are at the moment requires you to tread carefully in order to avoid falling into a pit.
When you have good taste, as your Rabbit personality does, you can feel that it’s quite difficult to acquire all the things that reflect how you see yourself. Is who you are really so dependent on what possessions you own? Try to think of yourself in spiritual terms today and you will find that you already have everything you need.
You could feel there’s a certain sense of rivalry today. You need to watch out for whom to trust in case they might be on your opponent’s side. Be very aware of how information can help you win or lose a race. Seek to gather as much intelligence as you can, and make sure you are not being deliberately fed mis-information to throw you off track.
You could be quite busy looking into certain details but actually it might be better for you to stand back and get a good view of the overall plan. Assess the big picture before you go into the finer details, and you can soon realise there are certain things you do not need to do. Make life simpler for yourself by only doing what you need to do.
Today you might find that it’s important for you to actually get involved in doing something rather than just talking about it, and asking for other peoples’ opinions. There is nothing that beats rolling your sleeves up and getting a good feel for what you are doing. It’s time to stop chatting about the implications and to get stuck in.
Somebody could come along and really challenge your authority in some way today. Be direct in explaining your position, but there is no need to be overly defensive, for that could come across as lacking power. Trust that you can stand your own ground in your field of expertise, or in the area where you know you are clearly the one in charge.
You could feel that there is almost too much information around you today. Your naturally curious Monkey personality loves to know as much as possible about any given situation and will gather as much data as you can get your hands on. At the moment, it’s best if you just focus on the important things that you need to know, and to let some of the extra facts and figures fall away.
You know that when you feel positive you notice lots of positive things happening. Equally, when you feel negative, you notice lots of negative things happening. Beware of self-fulfilling prophecies today and aim to keep your chin up and look for the best outcome. Confidence is needed to succeed, and failure thrives on a lack of confidence or over-confidence.
Your caring Dog personality doesn’t like to upset other people but you need to be upfront with somebody today and there is a distinct possibility that their feelings could be hurt in the process. Make sure that you don’t avoid saying what you need to say but maybe you need to give some praise and reassurance before you deliver the hard-hitting message.
If you feel there is a boulder obstructing your way today, remember that a clear road is not to be taken for granted. In handling setbacks you need to sometimes be ready to go around the obstacle rather than try and climb over it. Be prepared to think of alternative strategies to deal with what is obstructing you, and you can successfully negotiate your way ahead.
