The plans you keep secret are the ones most likely to succeed in September. Decide who among your most trusted confidantes you'll reveal your tactics to. While you are at it go beyond that and prioritize when and who else to include as things are finalized. You may be surprised that you temporarily end up where you didn't want to be from the 1st to the 9th. It is simply a minor hiccup that you'll find actually helpful soon. If anything it offers a fresh mindset. Between the 8th and 12th, with the different frame of mind you have a perfect time for creative brainstorming -- complete with answers to elements of a puzzling issue. Beginning on the 16th and through the end of the month, you have the opportunity to explore new territory. The 23rd is the time to begin to share a few of your strategic ideas. Your lucky days are the 27th and 28th. If job-hunting, check out opportunities and send resumes. A fortunate day is good for asking favors. Did you know that after lunch is considered the best time, as long as the answerer is in a mellow mood? You will be operating in high gear in October.
