Your Fortune For Today
Sunday, October 26th, 2014

Time spent in nature or quietly alone can recharge your batteries today. Do what you can to get away and listen to your heart. You have a wonderful, natural sense of style that need not mean spending big money. Focus more attention on being well dressed and making a good presentation.

Today will hear some good news, probably something that you have been anxiously waiting to hear. Make sure to spend some time today with yourself and let your mind soak in some much needed peace. If you have been planning to make some changes then today is the day for it since good fortune is smiling your way!

The surrounding energy is encouraging you to open up more to your world, culture, and ways of thinking. You don’t have to go off alone in the desert to reinvent everything. For you, this would be the easy way out, because it would allow you to hide! Develop your curiosity about what exists in this society. Your opinion will carry weight later on.

Listen closely to the wind, for the answers are blowing around right in front of you today. Make contact with people you haven’t heard from in a while. You’ll find that you can be quite productive where you least expect it. Ironically, the less you plan, the more you’ll get done. Be spontaneous in your actions. Revelations will come to you like lightning.

Today, you need to pay attention to what your intuition is telling you. Events today may make you realize that there is more than what meets the eye and a lot lies below the surface. Try to find useful things to do which make you feel enthusiastic and optimistic.

A trip by air could be very much on your mind today. Perhaps you’re planning a vacation with your family or a romantic partner. You could well be caught up in the excitement that seems to be the driving emotion today. Expect to spend the evening in the congenial company of friends.

Travel arrangements may have to be put off because of unexpected developments that keep you where you are. You may be worried about the consequences, but don’t waste your energy. You’ll be able to make the necessary trip, and accomplish whatever you’re hoping to do – just not today. Worry will only stress you out. The only productive way to deal with this is to keep moving.

This is a good day for you to get out of the dirt and into the air in order to gain a fresh, new perspective on a situation. Don’t dwell on things beneath or behind you. Keep looking up. Pick up the phone and call a close friend you haven’t spoken with in a while. There may be a great deal of catching up to do. Sometimes we forget the importance of maintaining contact with old buddies.

This is a big day to get things done, but you must focus on one thing at a time. Do the best you can with less money or fewer resources. Be very direct about asking for what you need. A big smile can open doors and change people’s minds.
