The lucky folks born this week are known as cusp babies. In other words, they are born on the cusp of Scorpio and Sagittarius and so have the vibe of both signs.
Since the Scorpio is intense and the Sagittarius is freedom, the personality of those born this week sometimes shifts from an intense nature to a happy-go-lucky attitude. To combine the two is the challenge of anyone born this week. The Sagittarius is a fire sign and the Scorpio is water. So there are many who feel the water signs tend to put out the fire.
Because of this, anyone born this week might want to watch that personality trait. When the individual tends to put out his own enthusiasm or his own fire by not having enough trust in his core belief, it is like throwing water on a fire. This can make mixing Scorpio and Sagittarius together a problem.
People who were born this week: Georgia O”Keeffe. Nov. 15, 1887; Maggie Gyllenhaal, Nov. 16, 1977; Rock Hudson, Nov. 17, 1925; Owen Wilson, Nov. 18, 1968; Jodie Foster, Nov. 19, 1977; Bo Derek, Nov. 20, 1956; Goldie Hawn, Nov. 21, 1945; and Scarlett Johansson, Nov. 22, 1984.
The full moon in Taurus is on Sunday, Nov. 17. That means this week life will be – for some people – rather emotional. So watch what you say and what you promise or pay the price. The price will be getting involved in commitments you don’t want to keep or projects you don’t want to do. So at the time of the full moon it is best to avoid unnecessary promises.
Mars, the planet of action and excitement remains in Virgo until Dec. 8. This promises continued excitement for Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces and Gemini.
Aries (March 21 to April 20) You would be wise to direct your enthusiasm toward your own goals instead of getting involved in the issues surrounding some of your pals. You have tried that in the past and it didn’t work then and it won’t work now. So keep your eyes on your future and let your pals do the same.
Taurus (April 21 to May 20) If you missed the recent big moment, avoid fretting and try, try again. You are known for your patient nature and now is the time to play your strongest card. Just smile and calmly wait until others come to their senses. If you are able to pull this off, you will be the big winner.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Remember, when we feel unappreciated, it is just a passing moment in our beloved’s life. All we need to do is wait for the negative to pass and life will look a lot better. So if any phase of your life looks bleak this week, know it will change in a heartbeat if you just do your part. Don’t fall victim to nonsense.
Cancer (June 21 to July 20) With Jupiter in Cancer just know it is going back to offer you more opportunities. Wake up to the good things in life and keep yourself in line for the good life of Jupiter. It is time to work for what you want and avoid any complaints which, by the way, hinder your success. Your good luck has arrived. Grab it with both hands.
Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) Just because there have been a few dark moments recently does not mean you need to continue dwelling on the negative. The wise Leo pulls out of any problem and moves on fast. This fixed sign also takes all the good experience with him and smiles. So try that method this week. No more looking at the glass half full.
Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) Everything possible has been done to put you in the right place at the right time. It is up to you to make things happen both at home and work. Remember Mars is in Virgo until mid-December so you have plenty of time and energy to win the game you are now playing. So grab the prize and run. Do that and you will win.
Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) Take a break and reflect on the goals you wish to accomplish in the next six months and then set out to do the work. You need a reason, a goal and a partner and there is no stopping your success. Now is the time to get started and don’t let anything or anyone stand in your way. You need some change and it is right in front of you.
Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) If you understand you are in the midst of your cosmic payoff, you will break from the routine of life and go for it. It is time for you to cash in on all you have given in the way of time and effort. It is time for you to reap the top player awards and get a prize. So take your place at the head of the line.
Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) The past few months have been a time of change for this fire sign. You are coming into your own and learning to ignore what others have to say. The people in your life now have your best interests at heart. Your own partner will turn up as soon as you are really ready.
Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) No one can say you have not done your part in ignoring the negative and working toward the positive in the past year. Now that you are back in your own good graces, look for new people to bring a totally new business and romantic nature into your life. If you have really made the change complete, expect some spiritual clarity.
Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) The very nature of your life is turning upside down. If you don’t understand just what is happening, you would be wise to take some time and find out. What used to be acceptable to you is not any longer. You need a new set of boundaries for you life. Without them you will sink. Look for new faces and new ventures along with everything else.
Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 21) Your creative life should be moving along at a nice clip and you should be happy with it. A new face in your world could have some new meaning to you. The more you listen to your inner voice the happier you will be with Neptune. Your life is turning around so listen to what it is saying.
