Start the week off smart: with some good advice from good friends. On Monday, you'll have the clear, charismatic communication skills to chat up anybody -- but conversations with friends and those close to you will give you the most insight. You'll need that guidance going into Tuesday and Wednesday (and even Thursday morning), as you're faced with unusual obstacles and unclear expectations. From Thursday afternoon through Saturday, everything blocking your way will vanish. You'll have extraordinary energy and the kind of fun, flirtatious attitude that will liven up any room. This Sunday, don't be afraid to be selfish. Now is the time to tighten purse strings and reassess budgets.
