"You have the rare ability to recognize ability in others."

"Your self-confidence shines and makes a great impression on others."

"Listen to the wisdom of the old."

"The wheel of good fortune is finally turning in your direction!" (So what is the wheel of bad fortune doing?)

"Your dreams are never silly; depend on them to guide you."

"Seek happiness for its own sake and you will find it."

"Friends long absent are coming back to you."

"Depart not from the path which fate has you assigned."

"An empty stomach is not a good political advisor." (If only Anakin had been fed more tasty meals...)

"Keep your feet on the ground even though friends flatter you."

"It is most enjoyable to talk with you."

"To love and win is the best thing; to love and lose, the next best."

"Plan for many pleasures ahead."

"No harm in putting all your eggs in one basket - just watch it closely."

"You have a keen sense of humor and love a good time."

"Failure is the mother of success."

"Be most affectionate today."

"Enjoy what you have; hope for what you lack."

"The best times of your life have not yet been lived."

"You are domestically inclined and will be happily married."

"A lifetime of happiness lies ahead of you." (Always tomorrow, never today...)

"A lifetime of happiness lies ahead for you!"

"Someone from your past has returned to steal your heart."

"Your fastidious nature has much more fun this year!"

"You are a traveller at heart. There will be many journeys."

"Be careful! Straight trees often have crooked roots."

"Your heart will always make itself known through your words."

"You make people realize that there exist other beauties in the world."

"You never know what you can do until you try."

"It's a good thing that life is not as serious as it seems to the waiter."

"Ignorance never settles a question."

"Your ability to juggle many tasks will take you far." (My ability to walk will take me even further.)

"A good time to finish up old tasks."

"Pray for what you want; but work for what you need."

"Good news of a long-awaited event will arrive soon."
