A philosophical frame of mind helps you to take the rough with the smooth this week. Nothing much rattles you so it’s a good time for dealing with relatives you normally find difficult – and for tackling matters you’d really rather put off for another day!
Stretch your curiosity and expand your mind. It’s important to learn something new, whether you’re researching something interesting online or picking up a new skill through training. You have many more talents than you realize!
Always a good communicator, this week you’re even better than normal. Write difficult emails or have awkward conversations, safe in the knowledge that you will say the right thing at the right time to the right people.
Lots of shopping and errands are on this week’s agenda but don’t run yourself into the ground. Preparing for the holidays is a big deal for you, but remember, these are your holidays too. You don’t have to do everything!
It’s a lively week with a fun, party atmosphere – perfect for hanging out with friends, colleagues and family, but not so great if you’re up against deadlines and need to focus. Try to limit the leisure time if you have to concentrate. Work first, play later.
Your home becomes open house this week for just about anyone to visit. From very welcome family and friends to those who are less welcome but just about tolerated, you won’t have much time to yourself. Fortunately, you’re feeling sociable!
It’s the perfect week to catch up with people you haven’t seen for ages. If relatives or friends live a long way away, don’t forget to use technology to make communication easier. In this online age, there’s no excuse for not talking!
Other people may start winding down for the holidays, but you’re in full speed mode at work. It’s a good time to show how valuable you are or to take on extra responsibility – but check with your sweetheart first if you’re doing overtime!
You’ll want to express yourself loud and clear this week and by and large you will have a willing audience. Where someone does not want to listen, however, don’t force the issue. You cannot force someone to think the way you do.
You’re feeling quite insular this week and could really do without having to socialize. Despite the jollity of the approaching holidays, you would be happier with just one or two close friends or family members. And that’s OK – don’t try to be who you’re not.
The holidays are coming and you’re in party mode for sure. You’ll want to spend at least part of this week working in your local community, however, making sure that those less fortunate than you also have something to look forward to.
Don’t feel under pressure to have the most beautiful home decorations or the most exquisitely prepared dishes for guests. The holiday season is not a competitive sport. Be yourself, relax and enjoy time with your family as special days approach.
