Seize any chance to be spontaneous, whether this involves straying from a tedious work-related routine or where affairs of the heart are concerned. Sticking rigidly to boring systems or traditions is unlikely to interest you and something more fun and exhilarating can come from daring to be different. If your heart encourages you to try the untried or break up whatever has become too regimented, then go for it!
Avoiding tense or awkward conversations might be tricky, but it can be done. It could be in your best interests to turn the other cheek or simply walk away from anything or anyone that gives off a vibe of tension. If getting drawn into any heated exchange becomes unavoidable, then making an effort to count to ten and summon as much positivity and kindness as you're able to will ensure any tense interactions are brief. Don't make any mountains from molehills.
There can be no harm in playing it safe at this time, especially if you sense any discussions with certain people can head straight into tense or unpleasant territory. Choose your tasks carefully and avoid any that encourage opinions to be made forcefully on either side. A recent decision needs time to become consolidated, and instigating or being part of anything that disrupts that will shake a new arrangement that is ticking along nicely otherwise.
Nobody can deny or ignore the passionate way you convey yourself at the best of times, but especially now. Although there are numerous benefits to making at least one person fully aware of what you're thinking or feeling, it's important to recognize when you've said enough. Laboring a point doesn't reinforce your belief in what you're saying, it only annoys further the recipient of your words!
The desire to learn, explore and broaden your mind, possibly through travel, could be strong but don't be deterred by someone who doesn't share your enthusiasm. You could be dealing with someone who wants to remain deeply entrenched in a comfort zone and attempting to remove them from it will only frustrate you and them. Remain focused on grand plans that excite and inspire you. By the time you launch them, one stick-in-the-mud might feel more inspired.
Doing what feels right or suits you might be more of a priority than usual, but that doesn't mean you're a selfish so-and-so. One situation in your world might require you to lead by example, and this could also involve you pursuing something solo that you might normally encourage others to assist with or take part in. There can be no harm in looking after Number One for a change, especially if doing so helps others to spot what they could be doing more of themselves.
Speaking your mind or conveying a particular home truth to someone might feel necessary and appropriate, but try and filter your words mentally before releasing them. You could be prone to saying more than is necessary and could also take a conversation or exchange down an unnecessarily tense avenue by doing so. Saying nothing, for now, is not a sign of weakness.
It's possible to make a delightful change to your abode without breaking the bank. You could be amazed at what some basic DIY or a lick of paint can do. If you believe a more dramatic change is needed domestically to feel more comfortable, then try to curtail your impatience. Just a few, small or minor alterations could be all that are needed!
You might hold more influence than you believe you possess and could be surprised at how you can help to turn one tense scenario into something easily manageable. You're being listened to, even if you think your words are falling on deaf ears. Your input and opinions count, so don't hold back. One or two others in your world could be glad you stepped in to offer both.
You might be requested to increase your efforts or show more initiative to someone whom you believe you've done enough to placate for now. Before you go above the call of duty, you understandably want to know that effort made already is appreciated. It might suit someone else for you to show more willingness to please or impress them, but the final say regarding whether or not you meet their request - or demand - is yours, so don't feel obliged to rush straight in.
If the social scene beckons, then try to heed its call. There are many benefits waiting for you if you're willing to meet and mingle, with both old and new friends alike. Something helpful and encouraging can come from increasing any effort to interact, so make yourself available, even briefly. A chance encounter definitely isn't out of the question!
Normally, you're finely tuned in to the needs of others but could find you don't connect with someone's needs instantly in a way you might have usually done. Don't beat yourself up about this oversight; it's up to someone to come to you rather than rely on your psychic or mind-reading abilities. Once it becomes apparent how you can assist or support someone in need, you'll be superbly placed to step in and make their world a cheerier place.
