Do your own thing. Be a little selfish and focus on the activities and goals that you want to rather than on what is expected of you. You can accomplish a great deal if you are off on your own without meddling and interference from others.
Don’t overdo it. Others may think it strange or insincere if you pile on too many compliments or are overly gracious. It may be less time-consuming just to handle things yourself than to rely on several favors from several people.
Intuitions are on the mark. You are able to act quickly and decisively if you simply follow your instincts and do what feels right. If you sense that a friend or loved one may have a problem, don’t hesitate to find out.
The truth can be brutal. Honesty is the best policy, but you can spare someone’s feelings if you keep hurtful facts to yourself. You may want to hold off on signing on the dotted line, as conditions may soon change.
A promise is only words unless it is kept. Someone will show their true colors by coming through for you, revealing that you have a valuable friend. Chasing after your heart’s desire may lead you to interesting places.
Keep your enemies closer. Get to know those who are at the other end of the negotiating table. You may gather key information that can help you gain the upper hand. Impose a maximum when shopping for gifts,
You can’t please everybody. Kind words that brighten one person’s day may make someone else think that you are sucking up or greasing the wheels. Keep in mind that you have no obligation to explain your intentions to anyone.
Be mindful of the company you keep. If you drift into unfamiliar territory, you may soon discover that you have gravitated toward the wrong crowd. To stay on top of things stick to people and places that you know.
Take nothing for granted. If you rely on others to lend you a few dollars or grant you a favor, you may end up being disappointed. Don’t assume that you know what a loved one is thinking as you may be way off the mark.
It’s not whether you win or lose, it’s how you play the game. While the results may not be what you wanted, it’s the way that you worked at it that will earn rewards. Avoid impulsive purchases as you’ll likely regret it later.
Think outside the box. A problem may be nearly impossible to solve by conventional thinking. A more creative approach can save the day. Jot down ideas, as there may be a time in the future when you can act on them.
Make the world go away. You may find that you are in no mood to deal with other people’s issues and problems. It may be in your best interest to find a nice quiet place where you can concentrate on what is important. You may have plenty of get-up-and-go but nowhere to travel in the next three to four weeks. Avoid making false starts. You will get your chance to shine in December and January. That is when your judgment is at its best and when you can put plans and ideas into motion that will benefit you for years to come. Embrace any opportunity for improvement and it might grow into something substantial. January is the best time to address health matters. It is also an excellent time to make key decisions that will add to your general contentment and have a permanent effect.
