If Your Birthday is Nov. 16
(The Day of the Boss) | Scorpio Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Your life will tend to run in cycles this year, and you must make the most of those. A metaphor would be to plant when the growing season begins, and harvest at the end. These natural cycles are far removed from the thoughts of most, though you must be in harmony with your true nature, as you grow, change and become on a continuous basis.
Written in the Planets
The Moon isn’t technically new until it reaches the Sun’s position in the zodiac (that will happen on Saturday). However, today the Moon enters the relevant sign, Scorpio, and as it does so it forms a potent conjunction to Vesta, while the Sun trines Chiron. One effect of this might feel like the New Moon starting a little early, and quite palpably; you may find you have a pretty clear picture of where you wish to direct your energy over the ensuing month. There’s no reason why you can’t begin making plans or, at the very least, dreaming dreams.
