New ideas and ways of improving your status seem to flow freely into your mind now. You are inspired and ready to ‘change your stars’. Do not let delays, distractions, and competition thwart your resolve. You are at the beginning of a new cycle which can bring a positive change into your life; allowing interruptions to unbalance you is counterproductive. Focus on what you must do and leave some room for inevitable changes. This way, your emotions will not hamper your progress as you will be mentally prepared from the beginning for the possible adjustments to your course. To pursue your passions effectively, you need to know who you are, be certain of your path and in control of your feelings. You cannot let people or circumstances unsettle you to such a degree that you would fight every conflict on your way. Choose your battles very carefully, so you can use most of your energy on the things you want to manifest in your life. This does not mean that you should avoid people all together or that you should become an unfeeling robot. Be compassionate and caring, just not easily vexed. Let your dedication to display your creations and talents guide your moves. Follow your heart and be successful.
