Do you fear that someone's drive for success has been taking him or her down a very dangerous road? Get some quiet alone time with that person today and talk about your concerns. Be careful not to come off as preachy or as a know-it-all. If you come from a place of compassion and acceptance, you will be easy to confide in. If your advice isn't followed, don't look at it as a failure. You can only lead this horse to water. You cannot make it drink.

In bizarre situations, you tend to play it safe and keep to yourself -- which is very wise and has served you well throughout your life. But today you don't have to be careful of others when the confusion level gets high. No one is wishing you any harm, and no one is going to get in your way. You should look to others and see them for what they are: Sources of comfort and alliance. Being alone right now might feel like the right choice, but it's a shortsighted one.
Be very careful about getting involved in any business dealings right now, no matter how promising they may seem. Circumstances beyond your control are holding you back, and you don't have all the freedom you need in order to make the right choices or investments. You can try to negotiate with the things or people restraining you, but your time will be better spent accepting the situation the way it is right now. Wait for another chance -- it is coming along soon.
It may seem like rushing around is what's required to get everything done, but if you think things through, you'll realize that's not necessarily true. Keeping cool is going to save you much more time in the end so think long-term. Relax, organize your mind and give yourself the time you need to deal with these problems correctly. You'll soon see that they are neither as big nor as terrifying as you feared they would be. Elevating your adrenaline is not wise right now.
Is someone in power getting a bit too self-important? Don't let the arrogance of someone like this get under your skin -- you'll end up frustrated, and the egomaniac will remain blissfully ignorant of how annoying he or she is being. If you can see this person's behavior as amusing, you'll be able to create a day with periods of comic relief, rather than exasperating encounters. People who feel powerless to make themselves happy often use arrogance as a shield. Learn from that.
If you go for romance today, go all the way! Have fun, be outrageous and understand that flirting isn't the same as a marriage proposal. No matter how serious you are about someone, today is a day to take absolutely nothing seriously. Goofy jokes, silly slapstick, and groan-worthy puns will be woven throughout your day, reminding you to lighten up and enjoy each day as the gift it truly is. World peace is something to work on achieving some other, more somber day.
If you start the day feeling a bit depressed, try to get outside as soon as you can for a brief stroll. No matter what the weather is like, a big dose of fresh air will make you feel better. A blue mood is nothing to worry about -- it could just be your mind telling you to slow down a bit and ponder some new emotions that you're feeling. Taking a short walk will give you the time you need to reset your brain and start feeling like yourself again.
Having everyone like you is overrated -- as well as impossible. There's way too much compromise involved in being everyone's friend and never making waves. And what do you really get out of it, anyway? Be ready to be contrary, and don't get upset if someone says you just aren't his or her cup of tea. Getting along well with others is always preferable in life, but getting along with everyone just isn't realistic.
If someone ticks you off today, why beat around the bush by being diplomatic? It's a waste of time, and you might send the message that you don't know how to stand up to confrontation. Conflicts are no one's idea of a great time, but they are a part of life, and they're a big part of your life today. Save the candy coating for another day. Today, make it clear that you don't like the way someone is behaving. If you use a gentle but direct manner, you will make your point.
A nervous friend will probably come to you for encouragement today -- give all the time you can, and convince this friend that things will work out just fine (even if you're not quite sure they will). Good results cannot always be ensured, but they can always be hoped for. No one can tell the future, so why should you choose to think that it will turn out to be anything other than what you want it to be? Positive thinking is never a bad suggestion.
Are you living a balanced life? Your drive for success has taken you far, but has it forced you to leave anyone behind? Reach out to the areas of your life you've been neglecting (probably for longer than you realize) and realign your goals and focus. Family members are waiting to hear from you, and you have some good news they'd love to get in on. Take a day off from heavy-duty thinking and put your family first. Even some mass emails would be better than nothing.
You will win an unexpected victory today, and you might not be prepared for the prizes that are in store. Look to your coworkers or professional allies for assistance, and they will amaze you with their suggestions. You are especially open to ideas right now, and your mind is open to innovative thinking. The joy of winning will carry you through the day, and will keep you blissfully unaware of the burden of managing the responsibility -- until tomorrow.
