Today is a Goat day at the end of Goat month. What will double Goats bring you?
There is a sense of pressure about needing to do everything straight away. Who is it that is imposing these deadlines? Is there an opportunity for you to renegotiate or are you the one that is putting such a lot of pressure on yourself? Give yourself some breathing space. Figure out what needs to be done immediately and what does not need to be done today.
There is something which you need to keep close to your chest. Other people might pry and try to get you to reveal what you know. They might be second-guessing to try and tempt you to let the cat out of the bag. You, though, are not going to fall such manipulative stunts and the harder they try the more determined you become about not letting them know anything.
Today you could find that it is more challenging than usual to get others to do things. Why is it that those you are supervising are not doing what they are supposed to do? Your Tiger personality is a natural leader, yet today you need to think more about encouraging and motivating rather than getting others to follow your directions.
You could notice that the situation you find yourself in today brings back memories of a similar scenario from your past. When you can remind yourself of how you dealt with things back then and how you told yourself you could handle things a whole lot better next time, you already know what you need to do. Trust that you have the experience to help you move forwards.
In any sort of competitive situation it’s not always the one that is first off the starting line that ends up being the first past the finishing line. Observe your opponents carefully, for if you are overconfident you might not notice that they are getting quicker as you get closer to the finish. Keep up the momentum and do not let others overtake you.
Does it feel like you are going round and round in circles? It doesn’t matter how fast you move, you don’t seem to get very far because you keep coming back to the same scenery. More speed will not get you anywhere when you are chasing your own tail. Slow yourself down, find a clear direction and slide to where you want to be surely but steadily.
Who is it that is being quite annoying today? You could find that the person who is hampering you the most is yourself. Are some of your self-destructive tendencies coming through? The more self-aware you are, the more you notice your subconscious negative traits creeping in. You know what you need to do to be self-supporting, make sure that you do those things.
When you think about what has been happening in recent days you can wonder whether it was you, other people or circumstances that led to the situation you find yourself in today. It could be some combination of all those things. Do not blame yourself if things have not gone exactly according to plan. Sometimes a little bit of luck can make the difference.
Approaching new people can lead to you feeling a bit more cautious than your usual outgoing Monkey self. Is it that you feel they might be somewhat intimidating? They might be putting on a front to hide their own apprehension because of what they have heard about you. Trust that you can handle whomever you can encounter today and simply be the best version of yourself.
Sometimes you need to be a little less suspicious of others. You cannot be in charge of everything, even if you feel like you should be in complete control. No matter what others are doing, you need to let them do things their way, and not automatically assume they are doing things wrong because you are not keeping an eye on them.
Are you wondering where luck is? Do you feel you have had your fair share of luck recently? It’s easy to forget all those times when luck has been with you because you notice luck’s absence a lot more than you notice its presence. Naturally, you wonder where luck is when you need luck straight away. Trust that luck comes when you need it the most.
You can be philosophical enough to understand that sometimes you win and sometimes you don’t. Today, you need to accept that there might be a situation where the chances of you winning are quite slim and it might be more worthwhile for you to focus your attention on something else where you know you have a much better chance of emerging triumphant.
