If Your Birthday is Nov. 19
(The Day of the Reformer) | Scorpio Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
If you’re ever worried about money, focus your precious mind on something more creative and you’ll work out both at once. Financial thoughts often masquerade for self-esteem issues, so invest your energy into feeling your strength, your beauty and your purpose. Make that a habit, and spend your time only with people who support you.
Written in the Planets
Given the fact sexual abuse is a prevalent theme in the public discourse, you might be considering how power dynamics in general could affect past or present relationships. Mars squaring Pluto serves as a possible reminder that we don’t exist in a vacuum. We are all part of a complex web of social structures, which include gender norms; and this influences how we perceive and interact with one another. Mitigating that influence means, in the first place, being conscious of what it looks like. That involves understanding the various reasons why you do what you do. Then, if so inclined, you can make an informed decision to try a different approach.
