Libra

The problems you are having with a new member of your circle of friends or a new member of your family are nowhere near as awful as you think they are, so cheer up! Your active imagination, along with a few of your fears, is combining to create a version of reality that is simply not accurate. Interestingly enough, this anxiety does indicate how important this person is to you -- and once things are back on track, you two are going to be better than ever.

The bad news is that you are probably going to get bored with your company today -- and few things are less fun than getting stuck in a conversation with someone who just isn't that interesting. But you can avoid being in their company for very long if you skip past pleasantries and forget your good manners for the time being. Sure, you hate to be rude, but sometimes it's better to come off as rude than it is to endure someone going on and on and wasting your time.
