If Your Birthday is Nov. 2
(The Day of Transformation) | Scorpio Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
You must be realistic about what you’re willing to offer to partners. You don’t need to prove your affection to anyone. Yet at the same time you may be willing to make sacrifices for the sake of a partner’s happiness, or for the greater good. Seek companions who are equally generous, and who are able to see their best interests as an extension of yours.
Written in the Planets
Since late last year, Saturn has been in an on-off square with Chiron: an aspect that speaks of learning to stand in one’s own authority. Today the square happens for the final time before both change signs and Saturn begins to creep ahead. In the past 12 months or so, in what ways have you claimed your independence — whether from parents, or parent-like figures around you? Letting go of strictures that may have been imposed on you from an early age is no easy task; nor is thinking for yourself in an age when conformity is fashionable. Yet in reality, you are the only one who can truly determine what is right for you.
