IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: As the next three to four weeks unfold, your believability increases, so people are more likely to trust your ideas and decisions. Interview for a new job or meet influential people during this time period while your skills and talents are more obvious. In October, be more circumspect than usual about business deals and financial transactions -- you are personally charming, but now is the time to take a step back and observe. To make your dreams come true in December, you will need to demonstrate high standards and adhere to a disciplined work ethic. Wait until January, when you are more discerning, to make business and financial decisions. February is an excellent time to put your most crucial plans into motion or to make major decisions about the direction of your life. This is when you can lock in favorable conditions for almost anything you initiate.
