Prac­tice makes per­fect. Your crit­i­cal fac­ul­ties are at their best, es­pe­cially when you must make ap­praisals or de­ci­sions about fi­nan­cial mat­ters. Ex­pec­ta­tions will be met if a loved one has made a pledge of trust.

You can get what you want. How­ever, you must be more tact­ful. Don’t let mi­nor frus­tra­tions or misun­der­stand­ings build to a point of no re­turn. Con­cen­trate on con­struc­tive ac­tiv­i­ties and fol­low­ing the rules.

Imi­tate your bet­ters. You may be im­pres­sion­able or eas­ily af­fected by your imag­i­na­tion. Al­though you usu­ally think for your­self, you are sus­cep­ti­ble to flat­tery that could turn your head and change your opin­ion.

Put your goals in writ­ing and make a “to-do” list. You must not over­look cru­cial de­tails or dead­lines if you hope to make a good im­pres­sion. A de­mand for money may cause you to spin your wheels and waste funds.

Your am­bi­tions could start to sim­mer and stew. You might be wise to take steps so that you can achieve your dreams. Take de­fin­i­tive ac­tion, be­cause you will re­al­ize that any­thing that boils too long even­tu­ally evap­o­rates.

It isn’t nec­es­sary to buy some­thing to bol­ster your self-es­teem. You may long to own some­thing ex­trav­a­gant and as­sume that you have un­lim­ited funds. Ask for some­one’s ad­vice be­fore you dive in over your head.

Take a life jacket if you are prone to go over­board. Over­con­fi­dence oth­ers’ opin­ions or a lack of facts may­puty­our­fam­ily’s fi­nan­cial se­cu­rity at risk. Count your bless­ings and lis­ten to sound ad­vice. Nail down facts like car­pet on the floor. Your kind­hearted and sym­pa­thetic out­look can’t be ap­plied to fi­nances. Bal­ance the check­book and scru­ti­nize re­ceipts. Small mis­takes can add up in your fa­vor.

Stay on your toes. Your pas­sion for per­fec­tion might make you just a wee bit too crit­i­cal of oth­ers. If you think some­one is horn­ing in on your ter­ri­tory you might be­come un­co­op­er­a­tive and lose an ad­van­tage.

Be ad­ven­tur­ous. Your tra­di­tion­al­ist side likes a “sure thing” that is tested and true but new tech­nol­ogy might of­fer you time sav­ing mea­sures. A fam­ily mem­ber might be able to show you a few new tricks.

You may be as nim­ble and quick as Jack. You are ca­pa­ble of han­dling any con­tin­gency at work or home. Be sure to get ex­tra rest and sleep if you are burn­ing the can­dle at both ends in an ef­fort to com­plete a project.

Misun­der­stand­ings could cre­ate il­lu­mi­nat­ing dis­cus­sions. You may have the most in­formed opin­ion but could stir up a dis­agree­ment if you of­fer it. Do­nate to a good cause if asked to do so but do not vol­un­teer your time. Sud­den shifts of fo­cus may present them­selves in the four to five weeks to come. You may be chal­lenged to be con­sid­er­ate of oth­ers and may be­come overly de­fen­sive if your au­thor­ity is chal­lenged. By re­main­ing even-tem­pered and fo­cused on money-mak­ing ac­tiv­i­ties you can land on your feet in Jan­uary. That is when you are shrewder and more skill­ful at in­vest­ments and fi­nances. You can earn re­spect and per­haps even recog­ni­tion for your lead­er­ship abil­i­ties in March. How­ever, March is not a good time to change banks, make new in­vest­ments or to take on credit-card debt. You be­gin to glow with friend­li­ness in July and Au­gust and might have an ac­tive so­cial cal­en­dar.
