If Your Birthday is Nov. 25
(The Day of Sustained Effort) | Sagittarius Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
You are the one person in your life who can make room for an honest conversation about sensitive subjects. That’s your role; that’s what people count on you for. Focus your efforts on healing a family matter that has been nagging you for the past year or so. You know everything you need to know, and you have a true advantage: people trust you.
Written in the Planets
When you hear the phrase “anyone is capable of anything,” how do you interpret it: as an acknowledgement of creative potential, or as a warning to beware of unethical behavior? Today’s astrology would seem to indicate that both interpretations could be valid. Mercury’s trine from Sagittarius to Uranus in Aries suggests great inventiveness and originality today. Yet Mercury is also conjunct Ixion, a centaur planet with a reputation for representing amoral behavior. You’ll want to run any sudden brilliant ideas through the “would I still do this if everyone knew?” test; or, even better, the Golden Rule. It seems you have some help in this, thanks to Saturn conjunct the Galactic Core. No matter what your relationship to earthly authorities (including parents — real or imagined), you know there’s a higher power to which you answer. Love, honesty and respect will rarely steer you wrong.
