Collaborating with others is far better than petty competition. Still, it would be wise to watch out for those who are being over-friendly because their smiles might be a cover for a sinister plot. You don’t believe in working to a hidden agenda, yet others might be doing just that. Be careful of who you trust without letting them get any idea that you have suspicions about their motives. The middle of the year brings joyful events. When good fortune is around, your Ox personality counts your blessings. Spread around some of your feelgood vibrations with those who need some of your down-to-earth advice. Volunteering to do good deeds, or popping some change into a charity tin, leaves you feeling upbeat. Most of the time you like to let your other half do things their way, yet you’re going to stand firm on a practical matter. Think about how you can give way on something else and convince them that they talked you into it.
