Friends are made by many good deeds, but lost by a single rash blunder. Good advice is never cheap, but cheap advice is never good. You should meet both good and not-so-good experiences head on and react in a stable, consistent manner whether you are rewarded or penalised. Be wary of showing your emotions this week.
A little scar spoils the overall beauty. Know that one who indulges in excessive libidinous pursuits will soon become unhealthy. Learn to discern an advantage even when hedged about with disadvantages. A friend’s frown is worth more than a fool’s smile. Never permit doubts to arise about your good name, which is more valuable than riches. Eschew defilement and profanity.
Discouragement promotes inaction and inaction guarantees nothing but a life of ignorance. Do not confuse a drop of melancholy with persistent depression. This week, focus on developing self-discipline. It may appear as self-limitation but the wise know it is self-expansion. Limit yourself wisely, and you will see your value reflected in the favour of others.
Time allows all things to happen at once, but to unfold differently. You already know that reaching agreement with others is an excellent method for improving social relationships. Now remember that you can alter your life by adjusting your attitude. The advantages of self-nurturing are unquestioned, but your self-indulgence should be limited judiciously. Remember that every heart to love must come.
Learning to take charge of yourself will involve a whole new thinking process. Keep in mind the effect of spiritual wheel-clamping as a check on the negative emotions in your life. Set up your own rules of conduct for yourself and approach the unexpected with a smile. Be calm when dealing with problems and be sure to confirm your promise. Others may be relying on you even more than you rely on yourself.
Demand self-discipline, quality behaviour, personal responsibility and mature responses, first of yourself. Maximise your propensity for right action and the mastery of external events. Develop your introverted skills of concentration, depth and introspection. The examination of both objective and subjective viewpoints should offer a clearer perceptive. Your heart should be motivated and stimulated.
Offer more substantive information and less small talk. Know that intuitive perception is insight gained without conscious reasoning, but is no less true for all that. Try to develop the characteristics born of that insight that can make you more imaginative, theoretical, future-oriented and creative. Integrate your world view into the big picture so that its meaning can change your life for the better.
It is an iron rule that all paths that lead to happiness pass through pain. You should not have to choose between money and prestige, but strive to see the hidden meaning in all your actions. The most humdrum workaday task could harbour profound meaning. Any satisfaction that may be derived from life’s small victories must be balanced in a wider cosmos. Emotional health is essential in life.
Learn how to tap the inner potential of your mind. Know that life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood. If you need a motto, keep in mind that vision without action is daydreaming, but action without vision is mere Brownian motion. Your boldness has a certain power to sway emotions in others, but be wary of trying to impose your ideas. Save string.
Stay alert for signs and omens, for your path this week takes you through a thicket of risk. But take courage from the knowledge that though the path is narrow, it is also straight, and slightly downhill. Hazards may arise at any moment, even arising from your own best efforts, and golden fortune ever lies between the devil and the deep blue sea. Break free from emotional games.
Challenges will require you to overcome irrational fears and demand the strenuous deployment of your innate abilities. Think deeply before making a move to a different climate and consider the reason for the move. Foster the practice of mental assimilation above rote memorisation – only fools confuse the two. Know that a good listener may be more popular than a glib talker.
No problem can withstand the assault of sustained thinking. It is clear that without successful entrepreneurship you will not enjoy good fortune. Avoid doom and gloom predictions, while being sceptical of those who promise jam today. You should know when to say “enough”, even as a feast is set before you. Labour to develop your management skills and observation experience.
