It’s a Snake day on a Sunday. The Snake and the Monkey get along well. Make today a day about feeling better connected to others.
When it comes to dealing with a personal decision you can weigh up all
the pros and cons and dig down into all the details. Alternatively, you can ask
for some advice from someone who has the sort of experience to deal with the
matter you are looking at. Reaching out to others could help you speed up your
analysis of the situation and come up with the solution.
Certain people’s behaviour can be quite frustrating today. You wish
that they would be different. You know you cannot change them no matter how
much you wish. You know you can change your approach to dealing with them. Is
there somebody you know who deals with such exasperating characters quite
nimbly? You could see what tips you could pick up from them.
You know it is not really possible for you to be in two different places doing completely different things at exactly the same time. When faced with a choice as to what to do and where to be, make sure you consider how others might feel based on the choices you make today. See if you can come up with a way of keeping everybody happy.
Your close ones seem to want a lot of your time and attention today.
Whilst you love their company, if you need to claim some time to yourself
encourage them to do those things that they enjoy, which they know you are not
terribly keen on. That could be a clever way for you to find some time to sit
quietly with yourself and gather your thoughts.
Lots of different people seem to have different ideas as to what is the
best for you. You need to trust your own gut instincts when it comes to making
your mind up about how you want to handle a particular situation. They mean
well yet they are bringing their past troubles into their thinking, which might
not be that relevant to you. Listen to yourself more than you listen to others.
If you know you are right then it’s important for you not to let your sense of righteousness disrupt how you get along with others. When you know that certain facts stand up for themselves, you can leave it to others to eventually find things out for themselves, without you needing to hammer the point home. Let them be the first to raise any controversial topics of conversation.
There is being competitive for the fun of it and there is being overly competitive because you have lost a sense of fun around playing a game. There is no need to get too caught up in winning if you are doing something as a leisure activity. Make it a playful and happy atmosphere for everybody involved whether you win or lose.
You know that being cross about delays will not change the situation
any quicker than if you remained calm. Trust that you can cope with any sense
of disorder and do it with some good humour. When you don’t get yourself worked
up over things that are beyond your control you are behaving in the way that is
best for you.
If somebody is refusing to tell you something asking them time and
again will not make them more open to revealing what you want to know. Aim to
build rapport and have them feel more at ease in your company. When trust is
built up between you, you could find that they choose to spill the beans
without you having to ask them.
It’s not necessary for you to stick rigidly to an old plan if you are
doing it merely for the sake of sticking to an old plan. Circumstances and
people’s minds have changed since the original arrangements were made. Consider
the possibilities as they stand today. By being a little bit more flexible you
might find that the day runs a lot more smoothly and you enjoy yourself a whole
You could be feeling a bit over-sensitive about something a close one has said in recent days. It might not be any sort of criticism of you at all. Ask them what they were thinking
and you could see that perhaps you got hold of the wrong end of the stick.
Clear the air instead of carrying around hurt feelings.
You can choose not to jump to the bait when others say something
provocative. You are able to cope with whatever comments fly around if you keep
your sense of humour with you. You know you have no control over what somebody
else says, yet you know you can choose how to respond to them and not to let it
affect your mood.
