It is said that a person is known by the company he or she keeps. You might be able to rationalize your actions, but not your friendships. Show your loyalty and support even when someone is having a very bad day.
The turtle wears a shell to protect his sensitive spots. You may be feeling vulnerable and apprehensive about exposing yourself. Maintain a professional demeanor and remain above reproach in public.
The more certain you are right, the more likely you are to be wrong. What you think is the best decision might turn out to be the worst. Just get the job on your daily planner completed on time and honor all your obligations.
Impatience can be impractical. There could be something you want to buy, but a bargain found today might be of dubious value in the long run. Keep your pennies in the piggy bank and watch out for banking errors.
Choose to fly, to flail or to fail. The past can affect the present only if you let it. You may use the past as a building block to create a solid foundation or let it become a ball and chain that prevents you from making any progress.
Knuckle down and tackle trying tasks. You may prefer to work all on your own, in isolated splendor, where you can daydream in leisure. Family members and the boss, however, are looking for results, not excuses.
Pass a few tests before you are certified as an expert. Don’t take a day off or launch new initiatives and be a stickler about honoring responsibilities. Concentrate on business rather than pleasure, as new romances might fizzle out.
Maintain a stiff upper lip. Someone might rebuff your advances or seem unrelenting. Everything will turn out for the best if you respect other people’s privacy. Hold off on major purchases and financial decisions.
Hold up your end. Don’t worry about anyone else’s actions, since your own performance will be scrutinized. Concentrate on fulfilling your own responsibilities. Be punctual to prevent animosity from developing.
Take the high road when dealing with issues of moral standards or ethics. You will earn respect and help your reputation by adhering to the highest principles. Complete existing projects rather than starting anything new.
You don’t need a fireman to put out fires. Small problems that could create friction within a close relationship need your immediate intervention. Fatten piggy banks by adding to savings rather than investing.
There is no reason to make a mountain out of a tiny molehill. Healing words can put things back on an even keel. Acting on faith without asking for concrete proof or evidence is likely to work out to your advantage.
In the six to eight weeks ahead you will probably be ready to change your goals as well as your outlook. You may be focused on making a success of something new that is near and dear to your heart, and if you stick to it like glue the results can be tremendous. November might be the best time to launch a major initiative or ask for advice from trusted advisors. However, if major investments or a business is involved you should wait until February to make key decisions. That is a time when your business sense and shrewdness about financial matters will be at its best.
