Keep your tem­per in check to re­tain the re­spect of your peers. You may hope to lead the way or be tempted to make snap de­ci­sions. You may be too force­ful and im­petu­ous for your own good.

The best de­fense is a good of­fense. Deal­ing fairly and hon­estly in a busi­ness sit­u­a­tion strength­ens worth­while ties. Some­one who op­poses your wishes might be put on the spot.

Unique un­der­tak­ings un­fold. Money and fame might elude you, but by re­fus­ing to bow to convention you can carve out an orig­i­nal niche. Don’t say the first thing that comes to mind.

Chat when you’re at bat. Peo­ple who seem to be com­peti­tors may ac­tu­ally be on your team. Avoid work­ing at cross-pur­poses with others by mak­ing sure that there is an open line of com­mu­ni­ca­tion.

When ma­te­rial gains are scarce it isn’t wise to spend. You might be over­con­fi­dent about your bank ac­count. Don’t take on a risky in­vest­ment or gam­ble with re­cent gains.

The de­mands of ca­reer and fam­ily might come into con­flict. By keep­ing a cool head, re­main­ing neu­tral and re­fus­ing to get in­volved with dis­putes you will be able to side­step trou­ble.

You can make some­one’s day with a gen­tle word. Pay com­pli­ments as you see fit and you will find the thought­ful­ness re­cip­ro­cated in a pleas­ant way. You can make a dif­fi­cult sit­u­a­tion dis­ap­pear. Toot your own horn. The words you ut­ter will ring with orig­i­nal­ity and others will lis­ten to your busi­ness ad­vice. Peo­ple are look­ing for the best pos­si­ble bar­gain so of­fer dis­counts.

Drive and de­ter­mi­na­tion can drive some­one crazy. You may feel pres­sured to do some­thing in a huge hurry. Del­e­gate your time and ef­fort to the most im­por­tant projects first.

Use com­mu­ni­ca­tion as a tool to pound out a com­pro­mise. Your in­tu­itions might be off tar­get, but an ad­vi­sor’s ad­vice brings clar­i­fi­ca­tion. Suc­ceed by think­ing about the other guy first.

Pay at­ten­tion to your ac­tions. Some­one may ac­cuse you of be­ing brash or rude when you are sim­ply pre­oc­cu­pied. Money could burn a hole in your pocket if you don’t hide it away.

The pea is hardly wor­thy of con­sid­er­a­tion. The princess of a chil­dren’s story was hy­per-sen­si­tive to an ir­ri­tat­ing pea. Some­one could find you prickly when you pri­or­i­tize a pri­vate pas­sion. Things may not go your way for the next few weeks, but by late Novem­ber your en­ergy and en­thu­si­asm will have plenty of places to shine. Between now and the end of Novem­ber keep your head down and give no one any rea­son to crit­i­cize your ac­tions. Pay close at­ten­tion to any of­fers or as­sis­tance that comes your way in early De­cem­ber as chance en­coun­ters can lead to long-term im­prove­ments or cre­ate per­ma­nent abun­dance. You will have the pas­sion to suc­ceed at what­ever you start. In late Jan­u­ary it is easy to be mis­led by a new love in­ter­est or in­vest­ment idea.
