If Your Birthday is Nov. 12
(The Day of Sensual Charisma) | Get Your Scorpio Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
You seem to have the ability and desire to express your emotional needs in relationship to a group of people. Better yet, it looks like you can do so fairly, in alignment with some higher philosophy or guiding principle that you aspire to. Yet how do you know where the line is between ‘assertively contentious’ and ‘simply speaking your truth’? Stay in touch with your humanity (empathy), your responsibility for your emotions and the idea of cooperation, and discerning the difference should be easier.
Written in the Planets
Although Venus — one influence on emotions — moves into the more restrained sign of Capricorn today, we’re still drawing toward an emotional and energetic peak. That would be Monday’s Full Moon. For some, the instinctive response to heightened emotions or confrontation is to withdraw and avoid. Yet other factors in the sky indicate that allowing some form of emotional flow (especially around any secrets, sexual themes, financial questions or a sense of loss) could be quite healing. It might help to seek some creative or artistic outlet for that release; anything you’d consider to be a process of ‘documenting’ counts. With Mercury entering Sagittarius today as well, you may notice that a sense of the big picture emerges to help you along — but keep the details in view, too.
