Turn the other cheek and keep your tem­per in check. It may be tempt­ing to be drawn into a con­flict dur­ing the next few days, but you would be bet­ter served to just walk away.

Fix­ity of pur­pose breeds suc­cess. It is easy to be­come to­tally im­mersed in a project or key busi­ness ven­ture to the ex­clu­sion of all else. Un­flag­ging am­bi­tions can whip you into high gear.

Have a pur­pose and fol­low a plan. Know what it is that you don’t know so you can master the right skills. It is far bet­ter to re­main quiet and learn what is ex­pected than to voice an opin­ion.

Cre­ate a cozy haven for your­self and your loved ones. Your finely trained eye knows just how to ar­range the fur­ni­ture to make an invit­ing pic­ture. You know how to make the best use of space.

Grow a thick skin. You may be thrown into con­tact with peo­ple who are ex­perts at what they do but cal­lous about how they do it. Work to­ward achiev­ing a wor­thy goal with­out step­ping on any­one’s toes.

In­vest in some­thing small that will de­light the eye and warm the heart. You won’t want to make a ma­jor ex­pen­di­ture dur­ing the next sev­eral days, but you can still ben­e­fit from good taste.

Em­pa­thy and un­der­stand­ing can raise a re­la­tion­ship to a new level. Remember to give hugs and a pat on the back to the peo­ple who de­serve them, as that can turn the tide. Real love might be in the stars. If you play dodge­ball with a problem, you risk tak­ing a hit. It might stretch you to the lim­its of your en­durance to take care of fi­nan­cial re­spon­si­bil­i­ties. Face up to ne­ces­si­ties calmly.

Slow down. The rush to con­quer the world can cause you to make mis­steps. Con­fronta­tions could es­ca­late into a per­ma­nent mis­un­der­stand­ing, so re­main even-tem­pered and con­sid­er­ate.

A smile just takes a sec­ond to share. You may be­come so wrapped up in your own busy lit­tle world that you for­get to come up for air. Don’t ne­glect loved ones or for­get to be kind.

Put your pen­nies in the penny jar. This is a time to save money rather than to spend. Rote mem­o­riza­tion can help you stay on top of the rules, but it won’t teach you how to think.

Some­times the best state­ment is left un­spo­ken. You could sell a prod­uct by ex­alt­ing its virtues, but some­times you will do bet­ter by let­ting some­one dis­cover the ben­e­fits on their own. Dur­ing the next six to eight weeks you have the en­ergy to push for­ward with a busi­ness ven­ture or some­thing that has tweaked your am­bi­tions. Be­tween midOc­to­ber and mid-Novem­ber do not take on ad­di­tional re­spon­si­bil­i­ties as you will need to work hard enough to keep your head above wa­ter. In Novem­ber you may be at your best in groups, so take advantage of an in­vi­ta­tion to take a tour or to at­tend busi­ness meet­ings with fel­low em­ploy­ees. The last half of Jan­uary is a good time to make busi­ness de­ci­sions or take advantage of an op­por­tu­nity. Make fi­nal, cru­cial de­ci­sions about your fu­ture, or launch key plans, in Fe­bru­ary, when your judg­ment is at its best.
