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.
