Regard this as a waiting phase of a few weeks, when you plan, ponder and prepare for what is about to come nearer your birthday. Do not be discouraged by what is not working out as quickly as you expected. Nothing comes together spectacularly well at this time of the year for you. Just have patience and what you want will all come right. You may feel happier in your own company than usual, and could be a touch overwhelmed by having too many people around, so give yourself space.
