The Pig comes in to take charge of the day and together with the active Dragon in charge of the month it could be a hectic day.
Your competitive streak seems to really come through today, and it can make you quite wary of all those around you. Recognise when you are dealing with rivals and when you are not. If you save your energy for when you are actually running in a race, you will find you will have a lot more available when the starting gun is fired.
Playing your cards close to your chest and not revealing what is in your heart could serve you well today. You need to stay in control of certain discussions or negotiations in order to gradually guide everybody to a happy solution. In order to do that you need to keep back certain things until it is the time to lay your cards on the table.
If something is stopping you, or holding you back, then it might not be such a bad thing today. Your Tiger personality has a tendency to charge at things with full speed. Slowing down today could prove to be a very wise move for you could avoid making a hasty manoeuvre which could turn out to be a bit clumsy.
There are willing and able individuals crossing your path today. If you want to ask them for a favour, then you are likely to receive a positive response when you do so. When you can gain the support you need, it is a lot smoother for you to accomplish your goals. Do not feel you have to do it all on your own, gather a team around you.
You make better connections with people when you don’t try to put on a front and pretend to be something you are not. If you find yourself feeling a little apprehensive today then others will not expect you to act ever-so bold. They might have been through the same sort of thing themselves, and will actually like you a whole lot more when they see you are only human.
If you find yourself in a head-on confrontation, your evasive Snake personality can side-step any sort of conflict. Whilst this can help you avoid some heated arguments, today consider if you can deal with the matter head-on in order to resolve something which has been long-standing for far too long. Sometimes it is a wise move to tackle what you don’t want to deal with.
Although you might have a good memory you can still forget certain things which might turn out to be quite important. This could lead to you getting into some unnecessary trouble with those who have remembered what you have forgotten. Make sure you keep good records and don’t rely solely on your total recall. Make it foolproof by keeping notes in more than one place.
Sometimes saying what others need to hear is quite the opposite to saying what they want to hear. You are aware that you need to deliver a message that could make you unpopular. It’s important for you to say what is needed for everybody’s sake. Remember it’s not your problem if it is not what other people want to hear.
You are fine-tuning your ideas and it seems as if you are not quite there yet. Be patient with yourself. Talk about the difficulties you are encountering with those who might be able to give you some helpful advice. Could it be that you cannot see the wood for the trees? Someone who is not close to your situation could offer you a broader perspective.
If you are too quick it is difficult to be thoughtful at the same time. If you are being thoughtful then you cannot always be that quick to respond. Today, you need to find a balance between how long you think about something and how quickly it takes you to make a decision. If you are in any doubt then it’s wiser to think things out more fully rather than try and deal with something quickly.
You feel as though your expectations have somehow not been met yet you need to examine whether you were wanting too much to begin with. This is not to say you should not have big dreams, it is saying you need to realise what needs to be done in order to bring those dreams into your waking reality. Maybe it is time to draw up a new plan.
If you have a strong gut feeling about a certain person or situation do not ignore it. There could be a lot of counter-intuitive information going around, yet if you truly listen to yourself you could get quite an amazing insight into the situation. What others are telling you might be opinions or rumours that are not entirely reliable. Trust your instincts more than you trust tittle-tattle.
