Baltimore Sun Sunday - - NEWS -

Put sev­eral irons into the fire. There’s no rea­son to limit your progress when you are ca­pa­ble of han­dling mul­ti­ple tasks this week. Your creative ideas may come to the fore­front, but you may need some­one else’s aid to make them work.

Stick with what works. Don’t waste time wor­ry­ing over ar­eas and as­pects that you find dif­fi­cult when you can ex­cel by sim­ply do­ing what you do well. Be aware that you will be the cen­ter of at­ten­tion in the week ahead.

Speak from the heart. If you just say what you feel and don’t try to over­think an is­sue, you’ll have no prob­lem mak­ing a good im­pres­sion in the week to come. De­vote ex­tra time to a hobby to pro­vide a much-needed es­cape.

You can’t have it both ways. This week both business and fam­ily may de­mand your at­ten­tion and you’ll need to de­cide which has the greater pri­or­ity. A close friend could be counted on to come through for you.

Don’t get emo­tion­ally in­volved. Some­one’s ir­ra­tional be­hav­ior may have you ready to lose your cool this week, but if you can keep your tem­per in check the so­lu­tion should be­come clear. Main­tain an ob­jec­tive view of ev­ery­thing.

A good chess player an­tic­i­pates his next move. Make de­ci­sions care­fully in the week ahead, keeping in mind that fu­ture events could af­fect what­ever choice you make. Cre­ate a pleas­ant en­vi­ron­ment.

Build it to last. As this week un­folds, when you make a com­mit­ment to some­thing, your word should be as good as gold. Avoid just telling some­one what they want to hear, as no one will ben­e­fit in the long run.

Con­ven­tional wis­dom may not ap­ply. You may not get to the bot­tom of a prob­lem un­less you come up with a creative so­lu­tion. Put good ideas to work this week, as they’ll do lit­tle good stuck in your head.

Share your thoughts. You may find sat­is­fac­tion by ex­press­ing your­self through creative or artis­tic out­lets this week. Oth­ers may gain in­sight into what makes you tick when you en­gage them in deep, mean­ing­ful dis­cus­sions.

Put your own spin on it. While some­one else’s meth­ods may not work for you, there may be cer­tain as­pects of their ideas that you can put to good use. Don’t be too quick to make a final judg­ment this week.

Give a loved one a long leash. Give some­one near and dear the space to do what they want in the week ahead. Mak­ing too many de­mands could re­sult in a re­bel­lion. A dream may not be too far-fetched.

March to your own beat. What works for ev­ery­one else may not work for you this week. Fol­low your in­stincts and in­tu­ition. Oth­ers may mean well, but the ad­vice you re­ceive could steer you in the wrong di­rec­tion. Your ro­man­tic na­ture may be in full swing in the com­ing three to four weeks. You may eas­ily mis­take a new friend for a po­ten­tial lover and lose trac­tion. Wait un­til De­cem­ber, when your judg­ment is at a higher level, to make cru­cial de­ci­sions, changes and com­mit­ments. Any op­por­tu­nity that comes your way might be well worth pur­su­ing, espe­cially since your business sense and fi­nan­cial ex­per­tise are at a peak in Jan­uary. Work hard in March and by April you will be poised to find a bet­ter job or to re­ceive recog­ni­tion. True love might be yours as well.
