The Dog comes in to rule today. Will the Dog bring some seasonal goodwill?
Avoid creating false hopes by saying “Maybe,” to an arrangement, when really in your heart you know the answer is a big “No”. It’s better to let others know that you cannot be part of their plans, straight away, rather than creating an expectation that you might still be interested. This way, they can find somebody else who is willing and able to get fully involved.
When it comes to thinking about the festive season are you secretly comparing how you are going to celebrate with how your neighbours are going to celebrate? There is a competitive streak in your Ox personality, yet it would not be wise to waste your time, effort and money on cultivating a particular impression just to look better than those around you.
Normally, when an opportunity is before you your Tiger personality will reach out and grab it with both hands. Should an offer be made to you today it would be a shrewd move for you to think carefully about whether it’s right for you. It might be better to let an opportunity walk on by if you feel it is not the right opportunity for you.
When it comes to considering what to splash out on for presents for the forthcoming festivities your generous Rabbit self can sometimes forget to set a budget. Today, take a few moments to think about how you can make best use of your dollars and cents. There is no need to be overly extravagant because elegance need not be expensive.
Backtracking on a decision is rarely easy to do, yet when you know that it would be wrong to carry on purely for the sake of not changing your mind, you will find going back a lot more comfortable. Even if it creates some conflict, for you to undo your old decision, you know it’s only a short term pain for some long term gain.
When you think about how much you have got to do, you can feel somewhat overwhelmed, which can hamper your efforts because you have such a lot on your mind. If you stick to your plans and focus on one thing at a time, you know you can gradually get everything done and dusted in good time.
It will not be difficult for you to convince others to see things your way today. Make the most of such an atmosphere by wheeling out some of your more controversial ideas. It might lead to a few raised eyebrows to begin with, but then you are asking people to think differently. You could find those who are normally quite sceptical showing some enthusiasm.
You like it when others respond quickly to your requests. However, it seems that at the moment some people, who are normally quite responsive, are not really showing any signs of being willing to get back to you soon. Be prepared to persist in asking for what you want for a little longer, in order to let them know that you mean business.
When you notice those around you are falling out you can be tempted to step in and help them settle matters. However, such good intentions might not get you the results you hoped for. Ask if they would like you to mediate before you intervene. If they can manage to sort out their dispute without you, that is good news all round.
If somebody accuses you of being overly-serious they might have a fair point. There are some things which require a great deal of thought and attention, yet what you are dealing with today is something which is quite superficial and does not merit such an intense level of seriousness. A light touch is far more appropriate, and it leaves your mind free for those things which do need deeper thought.
Your Dog personality has been known to go along with others because you don’t want to cause any sort of disruption. However, you could find that not rocking the boat might not be the best tactic today. If you really feel you do not want to be involved with something, it’s better to cause some irritation to others today, by saying that it is not for you, rather than do it later.
If you find yourself in a jolly mood but others are walking around with downturned mouths, do not feel it is your duty to make them smile. Sometimes some people like to be a little grumpy until they feel ready to be more cheerful. You can keep yourself happily occupied with what is important to you, and they might wonder what it is that puts a smile on your face.
