The happy souls who celebrate a birthday this week are born on the cusp of Scorpio and Sagittarius. Now that is an awesome combination of principals. The intense, emotional Scorpio combined with the free-spirited Sagittarius produces an outstanding human being.
Not only do those born this week have a sensitive nature, they also have the need for plenty of freedom.
This cusp birthday individual offers a double edge to their friends. They have the intensity of the fixed Scorpio and the gentle openness of the Sagittarius.
The combination of these signs offers us a love of the outdoors, of nature and also the sexy feeling that intimacy can bring into your life. So walk lightly when you first meet anyone born this week.
Good advice would be to expect a grand experience in relationships with anyone born this week.
People born this week: Rock Hudson, November 17, 1925; Owen Wilson, November 18, 1968; Meg Ryan, November 19, 1961; Bo Derek, November 20, 1956; Troy Aikman, November 21, 1966; Jamie Lee Curtis, November 22, 1958; Miley Cyrus, November 23, 1992; Sarah Hyland, November 24, 1990.
The best day this week is Thursday, when the moon is in Leo and making good aspects to both Mercury and Pluto. One day to stay under the covers and hide would be Sunday when the moon will be void of course from 5 to 8:16 p.m. That is no time to make a big plan. Remember that Mercury will be retrograde starting in the early morning hours on Thanksgiving Day. It stays that way until mid-December.
Sagittarius birthday people have been warned that there is change coming. So this week Brad Pitt, who is a Sagittarius born on December 18, 1963 announced this week he will retire from movie making in just three short years. He is about to be 48 years old, so there you are. He says he has no idea what he will do next.
Aries (March 21 to April 20) With a mere week until Mercury is retrograde it might be wise to get new projects started as soon as possible. Otherwise, shelve them until mid-December. But since most Aries people are pushing for something new to happen, try and get started. A new friend could turn your life around; just make sure that is what you want to happen now.
Taurus (April 21 to May 20) Don’t waste any of your precious time this week getting upset with anyone. With Mars now in Virgo you can move ahead into a totally new arena. Try making your dreams start to happen. Don’t look back and you won’t be disappointed. Move on and take advantage of the expansive nature of Jupiter.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) You will be radiant if you just tune into the vibrations all around you. This is the time to make things happen in your life. Mars in Virgo promises energy and stimulation to force issues you may have been ignoring. Do you want a new job, lover, home? Whatever it may be, get moving.
Cancer (June 21 to July 20) If you are feeling slightly disconnected from the rest of the world, so be it. Just pick yourself up and try a new route to where you really want to go. Take a page out of Helen Keller’s book. She was deaf, mute and blind and was also a Cancer. Just keep moving along and this week could be the best in your life.
Leo (July 21 to August 20) Focus on the positive side of every situation and move yourself along the road. Life will calm down a little but you like the chaos, so the answer is get out there and find some. A new friend could really turn your life around if you let him. So stay alert and alive to every event taking place around you. There is real fun just ahead, so stay awake.
Virgo (August 21 to September 20) If your life is dull you had better wake up and get out where the action is, because Mars is moving your life for you and you need to watch it. Don’t get caught up in details because the total picture around you is engrossing. Remember, if you get caught up in the nonsense you will miss the fun.
Libra (September 21 to October 20) One of the things in life that make us blissful is making a promise and then keeping it. Reflect on your life now and count how many times you have promised something and followed through. Keep track and the more follow through the more joy you will experience. A new friend could turn your life around.
Scorpio (October 21 to November 20) Keeping a promise is important this week. Check your records and make sure you have been in touch with important people in your life. After all, your life is changing whether you all like it or not. You will have more money, time and energy than you ever expected, so get busy making some new schedules for you and your pals.
Sagittarius (November 21 to December 20) Make some big decisions about your future soon. Mars will be forcing you on with your life from now until July 2012. Try keeping your thoughts to yourself and you will do much better than if you start talking too much. Remember, you are known to say much too much.
Capricorn (December 21 to January 20) The exhilaration you feel all around you is exactly as it should be if you have done your homework. Your money goals will start to move closer and your partnerships will expand. If you have changed your ways and are serious about making some moves you are right on the ball. Continue making progress and finding answers to questions you continue to ask.
Aquarius (January 21 to February 20) If you have been busy learning new lessons then you have had a total change in attitude. Stop trying to make anyone live life your way. Once that lesson is learned you can help people with no strings attached. Helping just to help is divine and you of all people will love it. A new friend could be really important, so show some interest.
Pisces (February 21 to March 20) The challenge of recent weeks shows you that you are tougher than you ever thought. So keep up the good work. Your creative energy will be booming along now. Take some time to develop new skills. Don’t let anyone force you to do anything you would rather not do. Once that lesson is learned you are on your way.
