Sometimes you come up with a plan, and sometimes a plan reveals itself to you, and you must respond. This month you'll be at the nexus of where the two meet. You have your ideas about what you must do with your existence, and life seems to have ideas of its own. If you're not strictly the product of your environment, it's also true that your environment is only partly the product of your efforts. In order to find the correct blend, you'll need to experiment. For example, you can set an agenda with no concept of how you'll accomplish it, and watch what happens. You can let your life unfold without planning things in advance, and use your skills of adaptation and invention to develop seemingly random events into something that really works for you. One thing that remains true regardless of what approach you take is to keep on friendly terms with people in power. They are your collaborators, your facilitators, and, in essence, your sponsors. Being friendly with them, and finding the points of contact, is not about kissing ass. Rather, you do your best when you're working on the human level among other humans. Be truthful about your desires and your motives, and notice who responds supportively. Powerful people are protecting you, and have an interest in your success. Get to know them.
