Talk tur­key. It isn’t nec­es­sary to em­bel­lish the truth to get your point across. Your prac­ti­cal ap­proach can put you in the spot­light at any gath­er­ing. Some­one might go to ex­tremes to im­press you with their gen­eros­ity.

Carve out your niche as you carve a tur­key. Share the bounty of your life with oth­ers and you may win ap­proval and ap­plause as a com­pe­tent hol­i­day host. On the other hand, you might be blessed to be a guest.

There is much in your life to be grate­ful for. Some­times change is for the bet­ter, even if it doesn’t seem so at the time. Think a happy thought be­fore bed and let your sub­con­scious solve your prob­lems and dilem­mas.

Giv­ing is more blessed than re­ceiv­ing. Give friends the royal treat­ment and rel­a­tives the ben­e­fit of the doubt. It may be ex­pen­sive to keep up­with­theJone­ses, so just keep up with your obli­ga­tions.

Pass the salt, please. Speak up and let oth­ers know just what it is you want. You can be po­lite rather than de­mand­ing when the oc­ca­sion re­quires so­cial niceties. Add a chair for one more per­son at the ta­ble.

Honor the poli­cies of po­lite so­ci­ety. Re­mem­ber to bring a “bread and butter” gift if you are in­vited to some­one’s home for a meal. Abot­tle of wine might be fine, but you don’t need to break the bank to be cour­te­ous.

Dare to play fair. Put your am­bi­tions and at­ti­tudes back in the box when you have a chance to spend time with loved ones. Make the most of pleas­ant fam­ily gath­er­ings by re­lax­ing and en­joy­ing the good things in life. You can take the high road or the low road to get to Scot­land. Travel the mid­dle road, how­ever, to re­main on good terms with loved ones. Emo­tion­ally as well as fi­nan­cially, your at­ti­tudes may swing from one ex­treme to an­other.

Fol­low group con­sen­sus. Lis­ten to sound ad­vice from friends you re­spect. You will know ex­actly which way to turn when you are in a pickle if you spend time with those who have your best in­ter­ests at heart.

Fate is fickle. You might get the big end when you com­pete for the wish­bone at a big tur­key din­ner. How­ever if you risk money on the re­sults of a sport­ing event, or place other bets, you might lose.

You don’t need glasses to see the writ­ing on the wall. Cel­e­brate the Thanks­giv­ing hol­i­day while you are in the mood for fun, and use any com­ing days off to deal with any un­de­ni­able facts and fig­ures.

Be self­less rather than tak­ing a selfie. En­joy qual­ity time with mem­bers of the fam­ily unit and con­ver­sa­tions with young peo­ple. Re­la­tion­ships may have ups and downs but true af­fec­tion will ride it out with a smile. Your so­cial con­tacts can help you ex­pe­ri­ence uplifting ideas and en­cour­ag­ing ed­u­ca­tional ma­te­rial dur­ing the next six to eight weeks. Peo­ple may in­vite you to so­cial func­tions that will help you widen your net­work of friends. In Fe­bru­ary, March and early April you will have a firm grasp of de­tails and the abil­ity to put them to prac­ti­cal use, so this is an ex­cel­lent time to fo­cus on your fi­nances. Don’t plan a va­ca­tion or a ca­reer change dur­ing late April or May, when the ce­les­tial ta­bles are tem­po­rar­ily turned in a dif­fer­ent di­rec­tion. That is a time when it is pru­dent to main­tain a low pro­file and avoid tak­ing on ad­di­tional com­mit­ments.
