During the first half of this month, you should be focusing all your attention on financial issues. If you plan carefully and consider the pros and cons of each decision which comes before you, you could well find yourself improving your financial situation considerably. Though you'll see a substantial amount of money coming in at this time, this is not a great time to start up with unwise spending. Go ahead and enjoy your new-found gains, but be sure to put some of this away for a rainy day, because it is possible there are storm clouds on the horizon, at least a few, and they will hover overhead eventually.
The monetary results of your hard work will definitely be noticeable, but you'll need to plan carefully in order to hang onto that money. Depending on the amount coming in, this may be a good time to hire a competent accountant or professional financial planner. There is much to be gained and nothing to be lost in seeking out the help of someone who truly understands the ins and outs of your personal finances. The impulse to spend foolishly will be strong at this time; be sure you really know what you're doing before you begin tossing cash around.
During the second half of the month, take a break from the daily grind-at least a little bit-and take part in some activity you truly enjoy. If you've been considering a small "mini-vacation," this may be the time. Load up the car and head to the country for a quiet weekend with someone special or maybe the kids. The point is, you could use some R & R at this time and a little break from all the activity that work threw your way earlier in the month.
Also in the second half of the month, you may find myriad opportunities for flirting and meeting new people of the opposite sex. You'll find dating experiences to be especially pleasant at this time and you may even discover a chance to go on a brief excursion with someone new. That could turn into something that lasts for many months, or even years. Still, it's best not to go rushing headlong into anything without considering the ramifications on other areas of your life. Consider how a new relationship now will impact your current circle of friends and even your work environment.
Whatever you decide to do later this month, be it a vacation, a bicycle tour, taking up a new hobby or sport, or even becoming romantically entangled with someone new, you will find the activity to be most pleasant and enjoyable. Not only will you be developing new skills-many of which may well transfer to other areas of your life-but you'll get the chance to hook up with new and interesting people. The friendships you make at this time could well turn into friendships that last the rest of your life, so choose carefully.
