You’ll ac­com­plish much more by be­ing friendly and out­go­ing than by hid­ing in a cor­ner. Avoid the urge to be too heavy-handed with a loved one who may re­quire some ten­der love and care.

No­body can ar­gue with the truth. There may be an in­cli­na­tion to color the facts to your ben­e­fit. Sim­ply be­ing hon­est will be far more ef­fec­tive. Hold off on ne­go­ti­a­tions or sign­ing con­tracts.

What comes around goes around. Karma will re­turn your char­ity in kind. You shouldn’t per­form kind or gen­er­ous acts sim­ply to ex­pect a re­ward. Side­step con­fronta­tions when pos­si­ble.

Aim to please. You’ll find sat­is­fac­tion in putting the needs of oth­ers above your own and of­fer­ing a help­ing hand. Go out of your way to treat the ob­ject of your af­fec­tion to a thought­ful gift or ges­ture.

Don’t jump to con­clu­sions. There may be a ten­dency to look at only the down­side of sit­u­a­tions and to think the worst. Talk mat­ters over with a loved one be­fore as­sum­ing you know what is go­ing on.

If it isn’t bro­ken, don’t try to fix it. Your am­bi­tious na­ture may have you mak­ing plans to make the world a bet­ter place, but you may only make life more dif­fi­cult for those around you

To each their own. Don’t take it as a per­sonal af­front if some­one views an is­sue dif­fer­ently than you do. When it comes to opin­ions, there’s no such thing as right or wrong, so just change the sub­ject. Don’t make waves. Be diplo­matic when try­ing to get your way or risk seem­ing pushy. You could un­der­mine plans that are al­ready in mo­tion. It may be to your ben­e­fit just to leave things as they are.

Don’t take it per­son­ally. You may have a knack for per­ceiv­ing slights when there re­ally aren’t any. Avoid a ten­dency to be de­fen­sive as what you see as crit­i­cism may be some­one try­ing to help.

Let sleep­ing dogs lie. Get­ting your dan­der up over some­one’s past trans­gres­sions only serves to open up wounds that are healed. Take a day or two to think it over be­fore mak­ing ma­jor pur­chases.

Bowl them over with a great first im­pres­sion. Get out your best out­fit and add a bit of spit and pol­ish to your ap­pear­ance. You may not have all the an­swers, but you can cer­tainly look the part.

When trou­bles come they come in pairs. Stay out of a po­ten­tially volatile sit­u­a­tion or it could get worse be­fore it gets bet­ter. Be cau­tious when mak­ing im­por­tant de­ci­sions as you may not have all the facts. Your clear vi­sion of an im­proved fu­ture will be re­warded with fa­vor­able re­sults dur­ing the com­ing six to eight weeks. This is an ex­cel­lent time to ask for ad­vice or launch plans. Em­brace any op­por­tu­nity that comes your way, as it sure to bring last­ing con­tent­ment. Your abil­ity to make money or to an­a­lyze in­vest­ments is en­hanced as well, mak­ing Oc­to­ber a per­fect time to re­assess your re­tire­ment plan or to put busi­ness af­fairs back on track. Don’t be dis­tracted or taken in by a pass­ing fancy in Jan­uary.
