“A woman who writes feels too much,
those trances and portents!
As if cycles and children and islands
weren’t enough; as if mourners and gossips
and vegetables were never enough.
She thinks she can warm the stars.
A writer is essentially a spy.
Dear love, I am that girl.”
— Anne Sexton

If Your Birthday is Nov. 9
(The Day of Earthly Temptation) | Scorpio Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Learning how to receive what others are offering you will help you grow, and will facilitate your success. Receiving requires vulnerability, and you would be well served to end your standoff with being open to others. You’ll know you’re succeeding when you consciously have to go beyond whatever fears come up, and trust others enough to nourish you.
Written in the Planets
The Sun making a sextile to Pluto is ideal astrology for moving anything that feels stuck. This might include, for example, a habit or routine that’s outgrown its usefulness. You may, from time to time, be surprised by how quickly you evolve or change on certain matters. In this there is little to fear and much to celebrate. You’re free to rise above conventions or superstition or fear of the unknown, and step into a whole new adventure.
