Hubba, hubba! It looks like you are starting this month out on the 1st and 2nd with a smoldering passion that suddenly ignites into a full-fledged fiery flame of unquenchable love! Wow! That is not bad. Not bad at all! Have fun with this, sugar pie. By the 5th and 6th, things have calmed down a little. Enough, in fact, that you might suddenly feel like you need a little space. Be nice, but take the space you need, at work and at home. Don’t forget that you and they (whoever ‘they’ are: Partner, friend, love bug or the person in front of you in line for coffee) have had different experiences in life and are coming at this thing from different angles on the 10th and 11th. By the 15th, you’re feeling pretty open minded, and that is only going to be good. You make some pretty incredible strides in your life, and can really enjoy watching the changes happening on the deeply fulfilling 18th, 19th and 20th. A little research in the archives will turn up some fascinating information on the full-of-surprises 25th, 26th and 27th. So get down into those archives (yes, your own emotional archives count, too). Keep your cool, but don’t shut down emotionally on the 30th and 31st.
Career & Finance
When it comes to a work issue on the 1st and 2nd, you are really deep in it. In what? Is it your desire to move ahead career-wise? Are you feeling frustrating, even though you’re getting so much incredible feedback right now that just about anybody would like to be in your shoes? Hm. So what is the problem? By the 5th, you feel frustrated it’s not all going faster. But on the 10th, maybe you need to look harder at why. Is there anything you can do to change it? Or do you maybe need to stay where you are awhile longer to learn all the tricks of the trade? Answer these questions — and any others you can think to pose — honestly on the 15th, and you will know a lot more than you did when you started the month. On the 20th, you’re going to be in a very different mode: You’re organizing everything! Especially coworkers, who are grateful for your leadership. On the 24th, be careful in your business dealings. There could be a few very nasty little details that your would-be partners are not filling you in on. On the 31st, smile! It is just a plain old good day at the office.
Love & Relationships
If you think you can’t even imagine a sizzling affair, think again on the 1st and 2nd! Because a sizzling affair is exactly what’s in store for you! Whether your eyes lock over the tops of your laptops in a cafe, or your toes touch on the sofa, you two are alive to the possibilities of love. Wow! An extraordinary impulse should not be ignored (particularly if it’s a romantic one) on the 5th, 6th and 7th. You are so smart. They are so smart. So don’t be dumb — get together! Yes, this is definitely a situation that calls for lots and lots of brainpower on the 10th and 11th. You dream big and set your hopes high and wish for the best with all your heart, and this is going to make for some pretty stellar romance on the 16th and 17th. In fact, you might think things couldn’t get any more romantic, until you experience the totally amazing romance that comes your way the ever so slightly mind blowing 18th, 19th and 20th. Need some romantic inspiration on the 25th, 26th and 27th? Why not ask an elderly relative for some of their stories? You could get a few great ideas from Auntie Maybelline, you know. You really do need to get to know your emotions, for a successful romance, on the 30th and 31st.
“‘We must have that sugar bowl,’ she snarled. ‘Let the baby go. We’ll cook up another scheme to steal the fortune.’
‘But stealing the fortune is the greater good,’ Count Olaf said. ‘We can’t let the baby go.’
‘Getting the sugar bowl is the greater good,’ Esmé said, with a frown.
‘Stealing the fortune,’ Olaf insisted.
‘Getting the sugar bowl,’ Esmé replied.
‘That’s enough!’ ordered the man with a beard but no hair. ‘Our recruitment scheme is about to be put into action. We can’t have you arguing all day long.’
‘We wouldn’t have argued all day long,’ Count Olaf said timidly. ‘After a few hours-‘
