Lady luck is an inconsistent hostess. She may greet her guests warmly and cozy up to serve them, but if they stay too late at the party, she retreats to her room, leaving them to see their own way out. On this first full day of the Sagittarian sun, ingratiate yourself to lady luck by realizing her limits and appreciating the brevity of her attention.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). When humans lived as tribes in caves, if you were the center of attention, then there was a strong chance you were under attack. Public presenting is a primal fear. You'll bravely do it anyway.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Learning occurs through action, not telling. Because you want someone to remember how to do a job or show up in a way that helps you, you'll take the time to go through the steps together.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your responsibilities are important but they don't have to be heavy burdens you carry by yourself. Think this through. Assign tasks to yourself as though you were assigning them to a best friend.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You've been doing a dance around a bit of information because you weren't sure you wanted to know. Ask for a straight answer now. You'll get it and know exactly how to proceed.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). This crew would have intimidated you not too long ago, and look at you now. You can hang in, mix well and be proud of what you contribute. You've earned your seat at the table, and you belong.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The day unfolds like a story. Take pictures so that one day, weeks from now, when the spell of the weekend has long been broken you can once again conjure the magic.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Things improve because you assume a power position. This one isn't at the front of the line, rather you'll influence from inside the group, motivate from the middle and raise all from the lowliest to the top.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Remember when you were sure it would all go wrong and then somehow it went mostly right instead? The worry is unnecessary. You can handle life and for moments you'll even master it.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Fiction has healing properties. A good story in any form can build your imagination in a way that helps you see yourself as stronger and experience your world as more manageable.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You knew it wasn't a good choice but made it anyway. You had your reasons. Different things were weighing on you back then. Now you have the chance to right it.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Experience has led you to this point. You'll make the power move that a less mature version of yourself wouldn't have been capable of. No matter what happens, take a victory lap. The move itself is the real victory.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your synchronistic superpowers have felt a little off lately. It's not always true that the same person you're thinking about is thinking about you, but it's very true today.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 23). You are a lucky presence in the lives of others. It makes you even happier to see them succeed than when it's your turn to soak up the accolades. This trend of interconnectedness pumps joy into your experiences. Someone invests in you in early 2020. Frugal and focused efforts will pay handsomely in April. Libra and Scorpio adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 16, 3, 33 and 47.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "I was born Nov. 20, 1952 at 2:15 a.m. I have always felt like I am always a day late and a dollar short, in the wrong place at the wrong time. Am I destined to spend this lifetime learning?"
Aren't we all? With Saturn conjunct to Neptune in your first house (self-image, personality), I can see why you are particularly hard hit by life's lessons. This aspect implies that you always feel you are in debt, either monetarily or karmically. Because you're so busy trying to make up for your supposed shortcomings and slights, it's hard for you to feel in the moment. But, of course, that's where life's sweetness lies. Furthermore, you've never experienced learning as something fun. What to do? What every Scorpio is best at... transform! 1. Forgive yourself. Don't you think you've suffered enough? Wipe your debt clean. The past is over. 2. Learn to meditate. This will bring you back to the now moment. 3. Turn your life into a celebration. You have forgotten to celebrate for many years now, and there's much to make up for. I'm imagining you in revelry, and, my friend, you wear it well!
