If Your Birthday is Nov. 23
(The Day of Irreverence) | Sagittarius Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
We live in a political world. You must to some degree be a master of that realm. Know how people organize their structures of power and influence, and focus on the people who can actually make things happen. Then do what you can to become someone who knows how to move the game forward, the better to help yourself and others who deserve to succeed.
Written in the Planets
Today Mercury trines Eris (which also involves Saturn and Uranus). This might be a reminder that tension can often be defused if everyone treats one another with kindness and respect. This is different from being a martyr to tradition, or putting up with abuse from certain people because they happen to be related to you. Respect must necessarily include respect for yourself. That said, in these turbulent times, a little compassion and thoughtfulness is sure to go a long way; not to mention that both are decidedly needed.
