Use com­mon sense to rule the roost. Make sure that all the I’s are dot­ted and T’s are crossed be­fore the work week ends. You may ride high on a wave of en­thu­si­as­tic de­light where a cer­tain some­one is con­cerned.

Main­tain a del­i­cate bal­ance be­tween a lofty vi­sion of the fu­ture and the prac­ti­cal ap­pli­ca­tion of your skills. A lucky break could be as mun­dane as a lower gas or wa­ter bill. En­joy im­proved work­ing con­di­tions.

If you can cope with it, there is hope for it. Even if you are dis­cour­aged by some­one’s lack of en­thu­si­asm for your project or idea, a sil­ver lin­ing may ap­pear in the near fu­ture.

Your sit­u­a­tion may shift. Gain­ing a foothold to make an up­ward climb de­pends upon your abil­ity to ob­tain the fa­vor­able opin­ion of those in charge. Keep your own coun­sel where fi­nan­cial se­cu­rity is con­cerned.

Blend into the back­ground like a chameleon. If you find a way to fit in you will avoid jar­ring mis­un­der­stand­ings. Sus­pend crit­i­cisms and po­lit­i­cally in­cor­rect state­ments, and avoid dwelling on what you see as an in­ad­e­quacy.

You may be look­ing through a kalei­do­scope. Put the binoc­u­lars to your eyes and see the true pic­ture. Mis­con­cep­tions may linger and taint an on­go­ing re­la­tion­ship or ne­go­ti­a­tion. Hold off on mak­ing ma­jor de­ci­sions.

Bob and weave with fancy foot­work. Your ex­tra en­ergy can be used to up­grade your sur­round­ings, or you may find ways to make im­prove­ments to your fi­nan­cial as­sets. Stay in touch with sib­lings and neigh­bors. Pa­tience is a virtue. It may some- times seem that you work mostly be­hind the scenes, and you may think your ef­forts are in­vis­i­ble. Some­one could no­tice your tal­ents and make a note to con­tact you at a later date.

You might feel like the ring­mas­ter of a fam­ily cir­cus for a few hours. Re­solve doubts and lin­ger­ing prob­lems by be­ing de­ci­sive and ob­jec­tive. Avoid mak­ing prom­ises or sign­ing con­tracts un­til next week.

There is a time and place for so­cial rit­u­als, so do not fight them. In the public eye, send thank-you notes and make the ex­pected con­cil­ia­tory noises. In pri­vate, rely on in­tu­ition to guide your hand and heart.

Put a sense of per­sonal ideals into ac­tion. En­dur­ing friend­ships and eter­nal beauty are the best things to ap­pre­ci­ate. Put the yoke of re­spon­si­bil­ity aside this evening and show some­one how deeply you care.

Lis­ten to words of wis­dom, let it be. The world sim­ply isn’t ready to give you the recog­ni­tion you de­serve. Mis­un­der­stand­ings may oc­cur, so de­lay mak­ing an ir­rev­o­ca­ble de­ci­sion or start­ing a cru­cial new project. Make im­por­tant de­ci­sions and put key plans into mo­tion in the com­ing two to three weeks Since your wis­dom is at a peak and your per­sonal ap­proval rat­ings higher, this is a good time to start a new job or make progress with ca­reer mat­ters. Don’t bite off more than you can chew in Jan­uary and Fe­bru­ary, when un­re­al­is­tic ro­man­ti­cism may over­power your com­mon sense. Health prob­lems may be mis­di­ag­nosed, since your body may be overly sen­si­tive to in­no­cent sub­stances in Jan­uary and Fe­bru­ary. Your busi­ness acu­men is en­hanced in March, so that is a good time to eval­u­ate your fi­nan­cial stand­ing.
