Once mo­men­tum is built up it is dif­fi­cult to stop for­ward mo­tion. Even if other peo­ple of­fer re­sis­tance, con­tinue to plug away. Ig­nore a flir­ta­tious in­di­vid­ual who might dis­tract you from the things you should do.

Nur­ture team spirit. Be gra­cious when a gift, fa­vor, or as­sis­tance is of­fered by a co-worker. Be con­tent with what you have earned and col­lected through­out the years. Take pride in own­ing taste­ful possessions.

Birds of a feather flock to­gether. This may be a good time to be­gin to par­tic­i­pate with a lo­cal group or or­ga­ni­za­tion. Shoot some bas­kets or run a few laps around the track, but avoid mix­ing busi­ness with plea­sures.

Ask nicely and you will re­ceive. Good man­ners and a friendly bear­ing may earn you brownie points as well as a few ex­tra dol­lars. You will find your for­tune by co­op­er­at­ing rather than by com­pet­ing with oth­ers.

Cul­ti­vate a farm of friend­ships. This is a good time to ex­tend your hand to oth­ers by join­ing a group, club or or­ga­ni­za­tion. Although peo­ple will not nec­es­sar­ily be more than mere ac­quain­tances, you can share your ideas.

Put your hands to­gether. The dif­fer­ence be­tween right and wrong is as clear as the dif­fer­ence be­tween your right and left hands. But if you put them to­gether you can make a loud noise that sounds like ap­plause.

Where there is a will there’s a way. You must per­se­vere even if peo­ple are too busy to help. You will find as­sis­tance, or at least sup­port, if what you are do­ing is worth­while. Ex­er­cise good taste and dis­crim­i­na­tion. Teamup­with­anac­com­plishedco-worker who can fill the gaps in your knowl­edge. Spend time with those who im­prove your out­look rather than spend­ing money.

You might be your own harsh­est critic, so give your­self a fair re­view. Con­cen­trate on be­ing a per­fec­tion­ist with­out be­ing picky. If you work hard to make ends meet it is only fair to play hard and meet new peo­ple.

Fo­cus on a bet­ter fu­ture, not the fail­ures of the past. There will al­ways be some­one less for­tu­nate or more skilled than you. Ev­ery mis­take will teach you what you did wrong and build a store­house of ex­pe­ri­ence.

There are times when you can­not see the for­est for the trees. If you are fo­cus­ing your time on some­thing dif­fi­cult you might not be able to ap­pre­ci­ate or take ad­van­tage of an op­por­tu­nity to make a profit.

You may be a team player, but not the cap­tain. It could prove costly to of­fend some­one or over­re­act to crit­i­cisms. Drive more slowly and de­fen­sively than usual, be­cause some­one else on the road might be in a bad mood.

All your en­ergy and en­thu­si­asm may be eas­ily mis­di­rected dur­ing the next six to eight weeks. Ac­com­plish what­ever you can and work to­ward a goal, but wait un­til after the first of the year to make ma­jor changes. Next Fe­bru­ary is the best time to launch im­por­tant plans or to seek a newjob as the world in gen­eral will see you as trust­wor­thy and ap­peal­ing. This can be an ex­cel­lent time to make a ro­man­tic com­mit­ment or to find the per­son of your dreams. If you work with the public this is a prime time to make public ap­pear­ances, as you will be more pop­u­lar than usual. Watch your p’s and q’s in May, when the boss won’t cut you any slack and your abil­ity to bounce back from chal­lenges is some­what com­pro­mised.
