Anxieties dissolve when you see what comes of a Herculean effort.  Thank that person who kept pushing you to push yourself when you wanted to fold.

Don’t try to razzle-dazzle a client.  This person will see right through it.  Be upfront about what you want and you’ll get a fair hearing.


(May 21 – June 20):

You know that people don’t always follow your advice.  Today you learn about someone who did and succeeded thanks to you.


(June 21 – July 21):

You feel uncomfortable tapping into a secret stash, but don’t worry because you’ll replenish it.  Besides that’s why you keep it under the mattress.

There’s no such thing as making a right decision that will please everyone.  Some will approve and others won’t.  Tap into that lion heart of yours for strength.  You’ll need it.

Pursue a venture even if it’s a long shot.  The initial return may not look worthwhile, but it will grow over time.

Follow your gut.  A supposed “expert” will try to convince you otherwise, but this person’s enamored of trends and not facts.


(Dec. 21 – Jan. 19):

The lines between work and friendship are blurring.  But instead of retreating behind a professional demeanor try introducing a more affable one.


(Jan. 20 – Feb. 17):

Sometimes you have to hold back to get what you want.  It’s not your way of doing things but it may be what others expect and respect.


(Feb. 18 – March 19):

You will always extend the benefit of the doubt, but there’s a difference between suspension of disbelief and false hope.  Don’t confuse the two.
