Work hard and pros­per. You may get more ac­com­plished if you work in the back­ground. How­ever, you can make a fa­vor­able ap­pear­ance in pub­lic when you are fo­cused on busi­ness and fi­nan­cial mat­ters.

Let love prop you up rather than sweep you off your feet. Love doesn’t need to be purely an obli­ga­tion on your to-do list. Ro­man­tic fan­tasies may be put on the back burner as you tend to be more re­al­is­tic and prac­ti­cal.

Main­tain pos­i­tive mo­men­tum. The com­ing hol­i­day should only em­pha­size your de­sire for last­ing con­tent­ment. Don’t add to prob­lems by speak­ing badly of friends or voic­ing neg­a­tiv­ity in group set­tings.

Make it the best be­fore you rest. This is a good time to be “out and about,” as you are likely to ap­pear in a flat­ter­ing light. Avoid mis­un­der­stand­ings with a sig­nif­i­cant other, friend or boss by be­ing sen­si­tive to nuance.

Be wise and or­ga­nize. Ef­fi­ciency may be your best trait. Main­tain your own high stan­dards with­out ex­pect­ing ev­ery­one else to fall into line. Don’t de­liver ul­ti­ma­tums or force some­one else to make hard choices.

Pro­tect your nest egg. Plan ahead so you aren’t tempted to make ma­jor ex­pen­di­tures with­out ad­e­quate plan­ning. Don’t throw rot­ten eggs at any­one, as it is pos­si­ble to grab the good ones.

Keep in mind that hu­mil­ity is highly re­spected. The only prob­lems you will en­counter will come from tak­ing peo­ple and things for granted. Some­one close may show good busi­ness judg­ment in un­usual ways. Prepa­ra­tion saves fu­ture ex­as­pera- tion. Play catch-up with obli­ga­tions be­fore your work­week is sus­pended for a hol­i­day hia­tus. In­ves­ti­gate your op­tions to re­al­ize you needn’t be ex­trav­a­gant to lo­cate the best qual­ity.

Don’t try to con­vince any­one of any­thing. Straight facts, ugly as they may be, could be your best re­source. At the same time it is to your ad­van­tage to be less blunt and harsh and more diplo­matic.

Check the sky be­fore you fly. Mak­ing grandiose plans for the fu­ture may be eas­ier than ac­com­plish­ing them. Be sure you look ahead with a time­sen­si­tive tele­scope and clearly con­sider the long-term re­sults of an ac­tion.

The rooster who crows too proudly could end up as Thanks­giv­ing din­ner. Your pub­lic per­sona may ben­e­fit from dis­plays of en­thu­si­asm and con­fi­dence, but over­ween­ing op­ti­mism and faith can’t re­place facts.

Tip­toe away from the trendy. The most el­e­gant, clas­sic de­sign will bet­ter suit your sense of style and bring last­ing plea­sure. Con­ven­tional so­cial mores might not be ex­cit­ing but will please and re­as­sure others. Mak­ing friends is eas­ier than usual dur­ing the next six to eight weeks. You may be in­vited along to be just another brick in the wall, but could make last­ing friendships. It could be that your am­bi­tions are ig­nited or that you find you are more adept at tack­ling fi­nan­cial goals in Fe­bru­ary and March. In April, you could be in love with the idea of be­ing in love, but be ille­quipped to make ma­jor fi­nan­cial de­ci­sions. En­joy a va­ca­tion or a brief fling, but avoid mak­ing key changes that could af­fect your fi­nan­cial se­cu­rity. You will ben­e­fit from join­ing group ac­tiv­i­ties and at­tend­ing so­cial events in May.
