Daily Horoscopes: 02/12/2011
Health problems will occur if you keep driving yourself so hard. Take this opportunity to rest and relax. You can do any Christmas shopping online. Do your best to resist the hysteria surrounding this time of year. The important thing is spending time with friends and family. You don’t have to put forth a perfect performance. If staying in town is too stressful to bear, you may want to take a holiday instead. There’s no point in subjecting yourself to stress.
Beware of playing extreme sports, or you could break a bone or pull a muscle. If you’re in a sexual relationship, be safe. Your health is delicate, and you should take every precaution to protect it. Bills are piling up, causing you great anxiety. You’re the type who needs to be on stable financial ground to be happy. Think about returning expensive purchases and making homemade gifts instead. Anybody can go shopping; it takes care and effort to make something with your own hands.
Take extra pains to keep poisonous materials, flammable substances, and sharp tools locked away. Accidents can happen on a volatile day like this. Tempers are running high in an intimate relationship. You’re tired of your best friend or romantic partner’s egotism. You must be more assertive if your needs are going to be met. Remember, your loved one can’t read your mind. Don’t be so quick to agree to unappealing plans, just for the sake of preserving harmony.
Technology has a way of breaking down. If your computer, phone, or car starts malfunctioning, send it in for repairs. Meanwhile, you might want to consider living without such conveniences for a while. These days, simple pleasures like taking a nature walk, reading a good book, or enjoying a tasty treat may seem silly. Nothing could be further from the truth. It takes time to train yourself to slow down and smell the flowers, but the resulting peace will be worth the temporary discomfort.
Keep your valuables under lock and key, as there is a danger of theft. You wouldn’t want to lose something precious because you didn’t take a few extra seconds to secure your possessions. You may feel pressured to buy a loved one an expensive gift. No matter how hard you try, you won’t be able to buy their affection. The best way to make inroads to your relationship is spending more quality time together. Find an activity you’ll both enjoy.
Just because you’re the most efficient, intelligent member of your family doesn’t mean you should always get your way. Refrain from criticising a relative’s plans, even if they seem juvenile. Some of your favourite activities seem dull to your nearest and dearest, but they wouldn’t dream of spoiling your fun. Try extending them the same courtesy. You don’t mean to be difficult; you just want to make the best use of your time and abilities.
Don’t get involved with secret intrigues. Engaging in gossip will only hurt your reputation. You’re too kind and considerate to do make fun of somebody who can’t defend themselves. Still, the lure of fitting in can tempt you into making some indiscreet comments. It may be a good idea to change your password to a more secure code. You wouldn’t want an unscrupulous person to read confidential messages. The stars are prompting people to poke their noses where they don’t belong.
Remember the power you have to form people’s opinion. Stirring up trouble could derail a tense situation. Instead of making provocative statements designed to undermine someone’s authority, maintain a tactful silence. It’s hard to sit by and watch someone who is less talented than you take the helm of an important situation. If you’re patient you’ll be given the reins. In the meantime, take note of the mistakes your boss has made, and devise ways to avoid them when your turn comes.
No matter how hard you try, you won’t be able to force people to do your bidding. If you sense some resistance from the team, make a strategic retreat. State your reasons for following a certain plan. The more logical and persuasive you are, the quicker everyone will fall in line. Even if nobody cooperates, you can still move forward and take care of your portion of the project. As soon as everyone sees how much progress you’re making, they’ll follow suit.
This isn’t a good time to take an overseas trip. If you’re already far from home, it might be difficult to get back. Mechanical breakdowns and flight delays will slow your progress. You’re better off staying put and waiting until all the confusion clears. Now is not the time to get embroiled in a legal battle. You’re better off settling out of court or dropping your case altogether. Sometimes it’s better to save yourself the aggravation than trying to prove a point.
If you owe somebody money, take pains to pay it back as quickly as possible. It’s more important to reimburse people than credit agencies. Consider how much your creditor is struggling to make up the difference. The sooner you fulfil your obligation, the better your relationship will be. Resist the urge to confess a crush. The object of your affection doesn’t return your feelings. It may not always be this way, but for now, you should focus your energy in a different direction.
Conflicts with a business or romantic partner are causing a great deal of stress. You’re tired of being the victim of their bullying. You’ll have to train yourself to fight back. That can be really difficult for someone like you, who hates confrontation. Still, until you learn how to assert yourself, you’ll continue to experience difficulties in all of your relationships. Remember you have a right to your opinions. Stop apologising for feeling so deeply about things.
