If Your Birthday is Nov. 14
(The Day of the Investigator) | Scorpio Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Understanding your own motives is the key to your happiness. What exactly drives you? What do you want? What do you need? Once you’re clear about these things, you’ll be able to follow them, or make any necessary adjustments. Yet you must not live in any form of denial, or treat yourself like a cryptic puzzle. This will take some mental discipline.
Written in the Planets
Today Mercury enters its pre-retrograde shadow phase in Sagittarius. This is not a reason to panic; but it is a reminder to begin tying up any loose ends you may have — particularly in terms of things like finances, major purchases and contracts. With Mercury in the sign of big-picture thinking, it’s also a reminder to be especially intentional when it comes to the details. Mercury will not station retrograde until Dec. 3. Use the next couple weeks to back up your computer and tend to car maintenance or other repairs you’ve been meaning to get around to.
