IF NOV. 20 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: The next three to four weeks may be the best time to break through the glass ceiling with your career. Launch your most important business plans and ideas while your passion for success is at a peak. A relentless drive and determination can keep any venture rolling forward. Late December and early January can bring inspiring experiences and is a great time to relax on a romantic vacation. Friends and a widening social network should keep your social calendar filled in January. Focus on honoring obligations and fulfilling crucial requirements in February, when your every move may be scrutinized and mistakes could be amplified. Wait until March, when your judgment and practicality are enhanced, to engage in intricate business dealings. Pass up a new romantic hookup or investment opportunity in April when you could be much too trusting.
