It’s time to be adventurous! The energy today brings a powerful concentration of creative and passionate energies. Plan a romantic adventure-go bungee jumping with your spouse or paragliding with a loved one-anything that gets your adrenaline pumping. Be ready to travel or chase your dreams. On the work front, be careful of taking on too much work as you may overestimate how much you can accomplish in the time allowed.

Make sure there is an equal amount of give and take in your day today. Sometimes when you love someone, you just want to keep giving and giving in order to demonstrate your incredible love. Be sure that you aren’t draining yourself of valuable energy that you need for yourself. Also be sure that the people you’re giving to are also giving their fair share in return.

You may encounter forces that challenge you to defend what you’re doing. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It may be time to make a course correction. If you’re doing something that no longer nurtures your spirit, now is the time to move in a new direction.

Ideas for creative, artistic, or service-oriented work might be coming thick and fast, although you could be torn between different possibilities. All your ideas seem workable, yet you feel you should settle on one for the moment. It might be a good idea to ask the advice of others. Even if you don’t do exactly what they suggest, the advice might show you new options. Hang in there.

Plans for getting together with a group of close friends may have to be called off because of sudden unexpected events. This could have you feeling somewhat down, especially if a romantic partner is involved. Try not to worry about it too much. You will be able to reschedule, and you could use the time alone anyway to relax and center yourself.

Today you might spend a lot of time with the special person in your life. Romance and affection are definitely a powerful factor in the course of your day, but much of what might bring you closer together is conversation. You’re likely to exchange information that interests you both about specific subjects and yourselves and future plans. A short journey might also take place. Enjoy your day!

You might want to straighten up the house this morning since there is a possibility of some unexpected visitors dropping by. You may even end up serving lunch or dinner to a group of ten! Instead of panicking, just take a deep breath and organise yourself. If the cooking is too difficult, just place a call to a good restaurant and order something.

Let your emotions play with your imagination today, and feel free to discuss your findings openly with others. Don’t get caught up in so rational a frame of mind that you refuse to acknowledge any other way of viewing a current situation. Put away your analytical side in order to disclose a more abstract, intuitive perspective. Exercise that part of your brain that doesn’t normally get used.

The possibility of some houseguests might have you checking your home to see what needs to be done to make it presentable. It may need a few minor repairs, and you could do some shopping to dress the place up a little. Books might give you some workable ideas. Your mind might be working more quickly than your body, however. Take care not to push yourself too hard.
