IF NOV. 14 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: During the next six to eight weeks, you could be challenged to handle ambitious projects that require long hours and test your strength and determinations. Put business negotiations on the back burner and avoid making key changes or decisions because they could have unfortunate results. Your ambitions are high, but your judgment might be at a low point, so stick to the straight and narrow. In January, you can relax with friends and enjoy social activities. The first half of February is a good time to apply financial and business tactics since your insight is likely enhanced regarding material matters. In March, your ability to absorb inspiration and dwell on romantic fantasies is likely at a peak. This might mean taking a vacation or spending more time on a creative hobby, but if you are single, it might mean a romantic fling.
