Star rating: The stars are an indicator determining how good your day will be. I base it on moon cycles:
Nothing can stop you now. Go for the gold.
You can pretty much do as you please; it’s a good time to start new projects.
If you focus your efforts, you will reach your goals.
You can accomplish a lot, but don’t rely on others for help.
It’s best to avoid conflicts; work behind the scenes or read a good book.
