A pref­er­ence for per­fec­tion is a pow­er­ful policy. Pol­ish the re­sume, bal­ance the check­book, take the car in for an oil change or clear your desk. Reg­u­lar main­te­nance and or­ga­ni­za­tion keep things run­ning smoothly.

Dis­play a friendly smile to gain a friend. You’re adept at busi­ness strate­gies to­day, so do your best to win friends and in­flu­ence oth­ers. You might dis­cover a life­long friend or ally lurk­ing in a group meet­ing.

Au­then­tic friend­ships are few and far be­tween. There may be a friend, a goal or an idea that you feel you have out­grown. You won’t be at peace with your con­science if you sac­ri­fice a friend­ship to make a few dol­lars.

Ex­er­cise the mind as well as the body. Stretch a lit­tle fur­ther than you think possible and don’t be afraid to con­tem­plate suc­cess in your ca­reer or busi­ness. Friends might help be­hind the scenes.

The pur­suit of pros­per­ity may be your pet pas­time. You have a flair for fi­nan­cial ma­neu­ver­ing, but won’t want ev­ery­one to know that your main goal is to make money. Make an ef­fort to main­tain friend­ships as well.

Your good taste and sense of style can put you at the fore­front of a fash­ion pa­rade. Peo­ple may value your ad­vice and knowl­edge. This is a good time to speak to oth­ers in a group set­ting or to make some new con­nec­tions.

Bring on the bar­bells or ten­nis balls. Good ath­letes know that it is wise to warm up be­fore par­tic­i­pat­ing in a sprint or a race. Put some mus­cle into mak­ing cer­tain things a bit bet­ter in some way and you will be glad you did. Dream of what you can ac­com­plish by be­ing con­sciously creative. Any­thing you can dream of do­ing is prob­a­bly en­tirely possible. Al­low your mind to work faith­fully in the back­ground un­en­cum­bered by neg­a­tiv­ity.

A so­lu­tion could lead to a rev­o­lu­tion. Just be­ing in­vited to make a comment doesn’t mean you should of­fer an opin­ion. Don’t be dis­tracted by friends or so­cial af­fairs when there is a dead­line to meet.

Keep a pen and notepad close to your hand. You might be in­spired by a friend or some­one’s friend­li­ness to do some­thing worth­while. Write down your ideas so that they can in­spire you again when you have more time.

Use logic as lever­age and it will never let you down. Rather than gam­bling with re­sources, look for the safest and surest thing. Friends and co-work­ers could dis­tract you but teach you some­thing at the same time.

A mil­li­liter of pre­ven­tion is worth a liter of cure. Head off prob­lems be­fore they oc­cur by of­fer­ing a com­pro­mise or an apol­ogy. Be hon­est about your lim­i­ta­tions and only make prom­ises you are sure you can ful­fill.

Get all your ducks in a row dur­ing the com­ing six to eight weeks while you feel en­er­getic and are ca­pa­ble of ex­ec­u­tive de­ci­sions. You can de­velop a great sup­port sys­tem in Oc­to­ber by par­tic­i­pat­ing in or­ga­ni­za­tions, clubs or group ac­tiv­i­ties. In the last half of Oc­to­ber and early Novem­ber your wishes could come true or an un­ex­pected op­por­tu­nity could open the doors to a much more pleas­ant life­style. Your judg­ment will be at its best, so this is an ideal time to set cru­cial plans into mo­tion or to make a key com­mit­ment. Don’t make cru­cial de­ci­sions or start any­thing of im­por­tance in the sec­ond half of Novem­ber, when your gulli­bil­ity is at a high point. Wait un­til Fe­bru­ary to make in­vest­ment or ca­reer changes.
