“It is dangerous when you start calling people from one part of the world terrorists or fanatic, and you reduce them to some abstract notion. If evil has a geographical place, and if the evil has a name, that is the beginning of fascism. Real life is not this way. You have fanatics and narrow-minded people everywhere.”
— Marjane Satrapi

If Your Birthday is Nov. 22
(The Day of the Liberator) | Birthday Readings: Scorpio | Sagittarius | Others
As a Sagittarian, you are naturally an independent person, who loves having all the space you need. You will go a long way in that direction by working toward financial independence: your own income stream, your own bank account, your own credit card and your own financial agenda. You may be surprised how much better this helps you feel about yourself.
Written in the Planets
You might investigate today certain tendencies and patterns you have in your love relationships. If you feel like there’s probably a ‘better way’, what is it that stops you from it? Is it simply a fear of the unknown? Do you lack a positive model of loving behavior, or of the vulnerability required by true intimacy? Have you been jaded by past hurts, and feel reluctant to open your heart again? Are you attached to cultural expectations of relationship that ring hollow when you try to pursue them? Today Venus in Scorpio squares the lunar nodes (a pair of hypothetical points). The North Node, representing dharma or the way forward, is in Leo conjunct Ceres (nourishment). The South node, representing karma or comfortable patterns that you’re outgrowing, is in Aquarius. Following your heart and leaving the crowd behind can be scary, and it’s easy to let disillusionment in love make you bitter. But what if one of the secrets to better relationships is to offer to yourself what you’d like to receive from others?
