Your ability to believe in your dreams is strong today. Pay attention!

Shadow: This can be a good day for socializing. But, resist taking on new responsibilities. You will, very likely, need more freedom than normal and will chafe at boundaries, structure and people who make demands on your time.

You may also feel unfocused. If so, don’t beat yourself up. It is not a day to work with details.

Quote for the Day: We must give more in order to get more. It is the generous giving of ourselves that produces the generous harvest. ~Orison Swett Marden~
