Today is the start of Monkey month, and who better to kick off the month of the Monkey than the Monkey’s friend the Rat?
When you can shift your perspective on how you view a sticky situation, it can make a difference, without you needing to do anything. Today, you can see that a lot of the angst around an already fraught situation was brought upon some of your own thinking. Look at things in a positive light and you will soon see that there is no need to frown.
When you feel you have no choice, you can feel that luck is against you. When you have too many options and it is a struggle to choose, you wonder if luck will help you make the right decision. Trust that luck is on your side today and take your time to carefully mull over what would be the best choice in the long run.
When you need to sort out a delicate matter that has been on-going for some days, talking will help improve communications and listening will help even more. It’s not just about airing your differences; it’s about being genuinely able to understand where the other person is coming from, and how you can find some common ground.
There is no need to berate yourself for missing what seemed to be a good opportunity because you were hesitating. Consider why you were not completely sure about things. There was probably a delicate balance between the pros and the cons. Maybe it’s better not to rush in with the fools and to heed the advice of the angels?
At the start of Monkey month and with the Rat in charge of the day, it bodes well for you for forming new bonds or strengthening old ties. It’s the people in your life that can make all the difference. After all, what good would it be to have all that achievement and nobody to share it with? Make sure your close ones know how much you appreciate having them in your life.
It’s fantastic to have big dreams, but every now and then you need to have a reality check to see if what you muse about in your sleep time is something that you can bring about when you are awake. If in talking to others you come to realise that you need to be a bit more practical about bringing your dreams into reality, start thinking about the next steps rather than feeling resentful that things have not happened.
There are often plenty of good reasons to tell a little white lie. You might think you are protecting others or protecting yourself. Be wary of not telling the whole truth even though you have good intentions for not doing so, for on a Rat day like today you can easily fall out with somebody over something quite minor. Don’t allow others to accuse you of being petty.
Be generous today, not necessarily with your cash but in your attitude towards those who have crossed you in the past. If you can forgive others for their misbehaviour your generosity of spirit leaves you feeling light-hearted as well. Everybody can make a mistake. If the tables were turned would you like to have a second chance?
Someone can help you articulate a difficult message. Although this matter seems simple and straightforward to those watching from the outside, those who know you and are on the inside will understand that it can be quite difficult for you to say what you need to say. There is no need to struggle alone. Someone you trust can help you find the right words.
If it’s a struggle for you to be punctual, it could be that you are trying to have things be perfect before you get yourself moving to your next appointment. Let go of the need to drill down to the finest detail. Trust that getting yourself somewhere on time will leave you feeling ahead and more clear-headed about everything you need to do today.
Although you are not prepared for some recent confusion, today you can see quite clearly how the chaos came about. Someone was trying to be clever and inadvertently made things over-complicated in the process. What you can do to put things back in order is to keep things simple and avoid falling into the trap that you need to create extra systems.
You could find that you can hold the attention of members of the opposite sex today. Use this to your advantage to win over people you need to impress. If you are well liked it’s easier for your ideas to be accepted. You know the way to court popularity is not to try too hard to make others like you. Show that you like yourself and it is natural for others to like you.
