November 22 to December 21

As long as there is no secrecy or pretense, this can be an intense and passionate union.

Luck maker

Luck loves openness

Expressive and open people are appealing and more likely to get offers of help than people who are self-contained and closed. Because they are alive and energetic, helping them makes us feel alive and energetic.

People born on November 21 love freedom and live by their own rules, but they also have a strong sense of justice, their mission being nothing less than to change the world. Regal and refined by nature, they are natural leaders who have no trouble working with the best, and more often than not being the best.

Those born on this day bring a quality touch to everything they do, and a major theme in their lives is refinement, and an insistence on creating and surrounding themselves with excellence. This finesse can manifest itself in their bewitchingly stylish appearance or approach, and it can manifest itself internally in the fine-tuning of their ideas. However it manifests itself over the years, they will be constantly improving and refining themselves in some way and, in the process, attracting considerable success and respect from others. This will not just be for their ability to learn from their mistakes, but also for their ability to make the impossible seem possible. The only downside with this careful, detailed approach is that it can make them a little too self-reliant, smooth and serious; they run the risk of losing their sense of humor and spontaneity along the way.

Until the age of thirty these people may find that they want to experiment and broaden their horizons; these are the years when they are most likely to make mistakes professionally or choose professions to which they are unsuited. After the age of thirty, however, there is a turning point when they are likely to take a more disciplined, determined and serious approach to life, ensuring that they make fewer and fewer mistakes professionally.

They need to beware of making the biggest mistake of all: denying themselves the happiness and fulfillment of close relationships with their fellow human beings. But once they have got in touch with their own feelings and the feelings of others, they have the ability to rise above any difficult situation and solve problems—perhaps even change the world for the better—with their inspired thinking.

On the dark side

Workaholic, closed off, depressive

At your best

Disciplined, elegant, influential

Love Keeping a distance

People born on November 21 like to be their own boss, and their self-reliant search for perfection can make them loners. Intimacy can be a problem, and they may use their ironic sense of humor to keep everyone smile, but at arm’s length. For the sake of their happiness it is important for them to reconnect with their childlike vulnerability, not allowing their intense focus on achieving their goals to alienate them from the love of the people they seek to inspire and impress.

Health Crank your energy levels up

People born on this day are prone to moods swings, depression and bouts of self-pity when life doesn’t go as planned or people don’t respond to them in the way that they had hoped. They need to understand that feeling sorry for themselves is a waste of their energy because it is likely to push people away rather than make them gather round to offer support. When it comes to diet, they need to eat little and often throughout the day to keep their energy levels up, and to spend more time cooking and less time shopping. Regular moderate exercise is extremely beneficial, especially team sports or social forms of exercise such as aerobics or dance classes which can crank their energy levels up and encourage them to interact more socially. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color orange will encourage them to be more spontaneous and open, as will carrying a turquoise crystal.

Career Born editors

These people are hardworking and adaptable, tending to rise to positions of power and prominence. They may be drawn to the world of business, to advertising, publishing and the media, or they could find themselves excelling in politics, charity work and the healing professions. They may also express their creativity in teaching, writing or the arts.

Destiny To inspire others to make positive changes

The life path of people born on this day is to get in touch with their own feelings and those of others. Once they are able to reveal their vulnerable side and express their fun and creative side, their destiny is to inspire others to make positive changes in their lives.
