Some­one who knows which rules to break will rule. Con­ven­tional wis­dom can only get you so far. To truly achieve some­thing great you’ve got to think out­side the box and put your cre­ative ge­nius to the test.

The coin you are tempted to toss has two sides. You have just as much chance of los­ing as of win­ning. The odds are not in your fa­vor for ini­ti­at­ing a project, start­ing a new ro­mance or mak­ing a new com­mit­ment.

Ig­nore the urge to form a new li­ai­son. The grass isn’t greener on the other side of the fence, and even if it is there could be slip­pery slopes that will set you on your ear. Don’t make new com­mit­ments, prom­ises, or agree­ments.

There is a ten­dency to re­act to the un­pre­dictable in knee-jerk ways. Avoid mak­ing ma­jor changes in busi­ness or fi­nances even if your part­ner is en­thu­si­as­tic. Do not waste sym­pa­thy on those who don’t de­serve it.

Quit be­fore you test a quest for ex­cite­ment. A sense of ad­ven­ture might drown out your com­mon sense. You may seem ap­peal­ing to the new guy or gal in the neigh­bor­hood, but this is not a good time to pur­sue a ro­man­tic hookup.

Put your money where your mouth is. Act quickly on of­fers, ad­vice and knowl­edge. A valu­able op­por­tu­nity will only knock once and you don’t want to look back in re­gret over a lost chance to profit.

Value qual­ity over quan­tity. Don’t buy some­thing in bulk or cheaply if it won’t give ad­e­quate ser­vice and en­dur­ing plea­sure. You will have bet­ter re­sults if you do one job thor­oughly than many tasks hap­haz­ardly. Be­ing part of the crowd isn’t your forte. You per­form much bet­ter if you have a chance to work on your own. Put so­cial events aside and con­cen­trate on ful­fill­ing your obli­ga­tions and mak­ing your dreams come true.

Some things may be more trou­ble than they are worth. Avoid mak­ing key fi­nan­cial com­mit­ments or per­sonal prom­ises that could put your peace of mind at risk. A grace­ful re­fusal is bet­ter than an awk­ward agree­ment.

Take a deep breath and fo­cus. You are filled with plenty of en­ergy, but it will do you no good un­less you con­cen­trate on con­crete goals. Don’t cham­pion one side in an ar­gu­ment be­fore facts are made clear.

Stay in the loop. Don’t for­get to keep in touch with loved ones and let them know just what you are do­ing. A new fi­nan­cial ar­range­ment may con­tain some draw­backs that are hid­den be­neath the sur­face

You could fol­low wher­ever the path may lead. If you are on the right path you won’t have any prob­lem ar­riv­ing at a promis­ing des­ti­na­tion. Avoid dis­cussing sen­si­tive sub­jects as some­one may mask their anger. Strate­gic plan­ning and com­mon sense with fi­nan­cial mat­ters could pay off dur­ing the next two to three weeks. Put your busi­ness or ca­reer am­bi­tions into ac­tion. In De­cem­ber you can put your vi­sions of suc­cess into mo­tion with­out in­ter­fer­ence from oth­ers. A new ro­mance might not be one that ends up hap­pily ever af­ter, but it will be fun. Too much fun, how­ever, could high­light your gullible na­ture, so watch your pen­nies. In Fe­bru­ary you may be in a test­ing phase and your achieve­ments might be placed un­der scru­tiny. Wait un­til March, when you are more prac­ti­cal and an­a­lyt­i­cal, to make cru­cial de­ci­sions about your fi­nan­cial af­fairs, busi­ness or ca­reer.
