The proof is in the pud­ding. Peo­ple ad­mire the re­sults of your ef­forts as well as your ap­pear­ance of pro­fes­sion­al­ism and expertise. You may be chal­lenged, how­ever, to prove your ca­pa­bil­ity un­der com­pet­i­tive cir­cum­stances.

Your per­sonal mag­netism at­tracts plenty of at­ten­tion. If you fo­cus on co­op­er­at­ing with oth­ers you can make some very good friends. Ask for help in achiev­ing a wor­thy goal.

Ex­press your­self. This could be a good time to take up a new hobby or to be­gin the ed­u­ca­tional process in a cre­ative ac­tiv­ity by en­rolling in, for ex­am­ple, draw­ing classes. A part­ner or loved one might not be en­thu­si­as­tic.

Han­dle some­one’s hid­den am­bi­tion. Some­one you meet might down­play their im­por­tance or ap­pear hum­ble. Don’t be fooled into think­ing that self-es­teem and pride aren’t lurk­ing be­hind some­one’s def­er­en­tial de­meanor.

Make progress step by step rather than leap­ing to con­clu­sions. Start the day off on the right foot by ap­proach­ing prob­lems in a me­thod­i­cal way. Prove that you aren’t too proud to get your hands dirty or to roll up your sleeves.

Your best bet is to strive to dis­play in­ner dis­ci­pline. Fam­ily mat­ters may re­quire a firm hand. You can still in­dulge in the things that bring you joy and let your en­joy­ment spread out­ward and touch those you love.

A brief run of luck might brighten the day. Bring strong points to light rather than point­ing out short­com­ings and you may win a friend for life. Avoid a power strug­gle over a fam­ily mat­ter or home­re­lated pro­ject. Flat­tery will get you some­where. You can pay some­one a com­pli­ment with­out stretch­ing the truth. Afewkind words and pos­i­tive re­in­force­ment will smooth the way and help you im­press some­one with your sin­cer­ity.

Stick to the straight and nar­row. You might be riv­eted on some­thing you must have or want, but don’t jeop­ar­dize your fi­nan­cial se­cu­rity with a risky in­vest­ment. The safest gam­ble is not to gam­ble at all.

Your am­bi­tions are more pow­er­ful than a laser sword. You hope to be Luke Sky­walker when you are only a Stormtrooper. You must pay your dues and gather more ex­pe­ri­ence be­fore you can run the Em­pire.

You can rule the roost if you use a ruler. Help some­one bal­ance a check­book, get out the yard­stick to mea­sure for new floor­ing or cal­cu­late the size of a gar­den. Show some­one how much you care in prac­ti­cal ways.

In­dulge your cre­ative whims. Show peo­ple you can be true blue and will keep your prom­ises. Mak­ing a force­ful play for power through an in­vest­ment scheme could cost you more than you bar­gained for. The next four to five weeks could be an ex­cel­lent time pe­riod to prove you are re­spon­si­ble and dili­gent. You may be highly am­bi­tious, but should avoid be­com­ing ob­sessed with power or con­trol as it could dis­rupt your life. In Novem­ber and De­cem­ber you have the ca­pac­ity to en­vi­sion your best fu­ture and can de­velop and im­ple­ment ben­e­fi­cial plans. Avoid be­com­ing in­volved in power strug­gles and don’t be­gin any­thing of great im­por­tance from Jan­uary through March. You might be tempted to burn the can­dle at both ends and be­come ex­hausted. Dur­ing April you can suc­cess­fully launch key plans, might be given a chance to prove your lead­er­ship abil­i­ties and can meet some­one who has your best in­ter­ests at heart.
