Emit a new signal

What you are suspicious of, you tend to attract because you are powerfully focused on it. To change your fortunes for the better, go within and emit a new signal with your thoughts and feelings.

People born on November 15 have an air of the unexpected about them. Smooth and slick but with the deadly accuracy of a cobra, they can strike out suddenly and unexpectedly in defense or attack.

These people never have a straightforward existence and their life appears to be a series of unforeseen encounters, challenges or confrontations; but instead of crumbling under this kind of intensity, they thrive on it. In fact, these people are unlikely to avoid any kind of conflict or challenge, and once engaged in an argument they will never be the first to back down. They are brilliant at defending themselves and finding the weak spot in their opponent’s arguments or situation—they are enemies to be truly feared. They also know how to wait until the moment is right to strike; when they do, their timing is typically perfect.

What these people often fail to appreciate is that not every situation in their lives is a battle. They can be suspicious or covert when they don’t need to be and this can alienate others or create negativity when there is no cause for it. Sometimes, too, their love of challenge and change can make them create conflict just for the sake of it to enjoy the “excitement” it generates.

Until the age of thirty-six their risk-taking tendencies will be at their most intense and there will be many opportunities for them to take chances, some of which will pay off, some of which won’t. After the age of thirty-seven, however, there is a significant turning point when they may start to become more disciplined and realistic. This is a positive development but, whatever age they are, injecting a healthy dose of optimism and self-belief into their lives to balance out their undercover tendencies will give them the courage to keep their spirit of adventure alive. It might also give them sufficient confidence and trust to put down their sword so that their heart of gold, and clear potential for happiness, success and fulfillment, can come out into the open.

On the dark side

Wary, volatile, defensive

At your best

Courageous, exciting, brilliant

Love Fascinating attraction

When it comes to affairs of the heart, people born on November 15 can be highly skeptical and noncommittal, preferring to keep their feelings to themselves, but they can also be extremely affectionate and seductive. Although this can send out very mixed signals to potential partners, it can also add to their fascination and attraction. The right partner, however, will be able to teach them that love is about letting go and being free to trust.

Health Your own worst enemy

People born on this day may expend a lot of energy on resisting the “attacks” of others, but their greatest enemy is themselves. They create an incredible amount of stress and tension for themselves and, if they could learn to be more trusting and open, they would find that their emotional well-being changed for the better. As far as their physical health is concerned, they tend to be fighting fit but can be accident prone. When it comes to diet, they should cut down on saturated fats, animal products, sugar, additives, and preservatives, increasing their intake of whole grains, fruits and vegetables. Vigorous exercise is highly recommended, in particular martial arts—as long as they exercise caution—as they will safely release pent-up energy. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color orange will encourage them to be more spontaneous, trusting and open.

Career Born secret agents

These people will tend to gravitate toward roles where they can be constantly challenged, and to careers that involve plenty of travel and change. The secret service and military careers may appeal, as might the work of a bodyguard. Business, politics and law are other options, and they may also have a gift for writing, acting and music.

Destiny To prepare others for the unexpected

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to trust and let go more. Once they have become less suspicious of everyone and everything, their destiny is to keep the spirit of adventure alive and help others prepare for the unexpected.
