Financial muddles are more than likely today so be careful if you're going shopping. You might be accidentally short-changed or there could be a misunderstanding about how much something costs. This isn't a good day to lend friends anything valuable in case they don't return it or they damage it in some way. Better safe than sorry.
Financial Outlookvery good
Time is hurtling towards Christmas Day and it seems that you're in a panic about how you're going to get everything done in time. You may even have reached the stage where you've ground to a halt because you don't know what to do first. So take a deep breath, calm down and do things one at a time. Otherwise you'll end up feeling confused, tired and tearful.
If you're currently keeping something secret it will really start to prey on your mind today and you'll worry about blurting it out at the wrong moment. It's one of those days in which you're absent-minded and completely wrapped up in your own thoughts. As a result, it will be hard to concentrate on anything else and this won't go down well in certain quarters.
If you're busy with a last-minute Christmas shopping trip it will be easy to lose track of how much you're spending, particularly if you're in a panic and desperate to tick off every name on your list. However, you might be in for a nasty shock later on when you total up the massive amount of money that you parted with. So try to keep a running total in your head or stick to a strict budget for each gift.
If you ask someone to give you a hand today, don't be surprised if they make a mess of it. That's probably because their mind isn't on the job, but it might also be because your instructions aren't as clear as usual. So before you get angry, check that what you said made sense. Relations with someone older or more influential than you could also be blighted by confusion or doubt now.
Be careful that you don't end up doing someone's work for them today. They might try all sorts of little tricks to persuade you to take pity on them, from pretending to be ill to making such a hash of everything that you can't bear to watch them struggling on for a moment longer. You are likely to be asked to put in some overtime at the sacrifice of your social life.
Take things gently today Libra, because mistakes and misunderstandings are rife. It will be especially easy to get the wrong end of the stick with a loved one or to get in a muddle over a financial matter. If you're out shopping, you should check your change carefully or make sure you've been charged the right amount for whatever you're buying.
It's easy to let things get on top of you today, especially if you're already feeling rather tired and listless. Do yourself a favor and keep away from anyone who often makes you feel fed up or defensive, because they're the last person you want to be around at the moment. They'll make your spirits sink, and who needs that?
Be careful about what you eat and drink today. Your body is in a very sensitive state, so you'd be well advised to steer clear of anything that might upset you or to which you're sometimes allergic. You should also try to avoid anyone who's a one-man germ factory, in case they generously pass on a few bugs to you. Right now, you could do without such things.
You're swayed by your emotions today, making you highly susceptible to other people's machinations. For instance, you might be putty in the hands of your beloved, willing to do whatever they want simply to keep them happy. Or you could be strongly influenced by someone's dour mood, so that you soon start to feel as wretched as they do. Luckily, this strange mood won't last long.
Unfortunately it won't take much to get you in a muddle today, especially if you're trying to keep track of your Christmas preparations and work out what still needs to be done. It won't help that a member of the family has their head in the clouds or is being completely fanciful about something, because their behavior will make you feel anxious and possibly even rather depressed.
You're lacking in energy and resources today, which will soon slow you down and make you feel as though you're wading through treacle. The only way to cope is to have as many breaks as possible, and not to set yourself impossible goals that you could never hope to meet. You're also very susceptible to the criticisms or put-downs of others, but do your best to ignore them.
