Pick one difficult and important problem, solve it, and put it to rest. It may take a while, but there's no rush. The satisfaction from completing any major project or challenge is worth it, and you have all the patience, tact, and social skills you need. If people or circumstances resist you in early winter, smile graciously, be persistent, and perhaps in the process catch the eye of a sincere special someone. By spring you will wonder why it seemed so hard. Many rewards, including social and romantic opportunities, await you before the end of your birthday year!
