It’s the start of Rat month today and as the Rat steps in to rule the month, the Goat steps in to rule the day.
You are normally somebody who is quite articulate, yet today you feel a bit lost for words. Do not feel you have to be the one who does a lot of talking in the conversation. Doing more of the listening could prove to be a sound strategy for you and the other person in the dialogue. By being understanding, of their position, you know how to respond.
Is there any point in arguing over something trivial? You might feel that sometimes you really want to win the argument, yet it would not be worth your while to try quite so hard today. See it as you declining an invitation to an argument. No matter how much somebody draws you into having a fight you can choose not to engage.
It might be time for you to take a closer look at your finances today. Especially as the festive season is coming up there could be a lot of temptations for you to spend the same amount twice. Think carefully about what you want or need to buy before you hand over the piece of plastic or the notes and coins.
Your caring Rabbit self is often busy looking after your nearest and dearest. Today, you could feel that you are yet again doing a lot of running around for close ones. You might want to remind them that, although you care, they need to be reasonable about what they request otherwise you are going to have to put your foot down and say no.
A close one has let you down and naturally you feel disappointed. Does that mean you can never trust them again? You know that trust is easily broken. Nevertheless, by giving them a second chance, not only are you allowing them the opportunity to do it right next time, you are also freeing your mind from negative thoughts.
You don’t have the answers to a particular question and this matter is very much on your mind. Close ones might encourage you to unwind and have fun. There is no point in you not doing so, for your questions are not going to be answered straight away. Put your attention to having a pleasurable day. You could find the answers turn up next week, without you thinking about them.
Whilst those in your circle of family and friends are often on the same wavelength as you, today it feels as if somebody is not tuning in. How can you help them see things your way? It might be that you need to listen and see if you can understand their way of looking at things, in order to turn them around to see your perspective.
As you express your down-to-earth opinion about a matter, close ones could look rather surprised. What is so obvious to you might not be apparent to those around you. Do not think that they already know something, when it could be the case that they don’t. You have some facts that they do not know about.
Close ones might choose not to tell you certain things and you might not feel entirely happy about them being so secretive. Trust that if there is something that you need to know, the universe will find a way of revealing it to you. Meanwhile, can you think of something else you want to talk about?
When a close one comes to confide in you, you realise that things in their life are not as good as they have appeared. Perhaps, they have been putting up a front that all is well in their world because they wanted to create a good impression. You might not be able to give them a great deal of advice, but you can lend them an ear and a shoulder to cry on.
You want to be loyal to close ones, yet it seems that you might have agreed to doing too much for too many people in different places at the same time. Explain that you have been trying to please too many people for all the right reasons, and explain why there are some things you simply cannot do today.
Of course you want to persuade a close one to make up their mind in a way that would be helpful to you, yet if they feel a lot of pressure they might not feel inclined to do what suits you. Give them some good reasons, then leave the ball in their court and allow them to decide in their own time. When they realise it will be win-win, they will not hesitate.
