Redirect your energy

The desire to strike back is a natural human reaction that you can’t ignore. But if you can learn to harness your acrimonious feelings and turn them around into a positive force, your chances of luck making improve significantly.

People born on November 23 know how to think on their feet and their wit and grace make them much sought after, both at home and at work. They have a way with words and seem to know exactly the right thing to say at exactly the right time, whether they are comforting a friend, presenting at work or talking sweetly to their lover. When their communication skills are combined with their intelligence and originality, these people have the ability to make a significant and benevolent contribution to society.

There is a side to them, however, that seems to draw them irresistibly to confrontational people or situations. This often happens when their inspirational aims are challenged in any way; they may even go so far as to provoke unnecessary arguments to make their position clear. If they are not careful tension can become a constant theme in their lives, starting early in their childhood—they may have been in conflict with parents or teachers—and continuing right through their lives with colleagues, partners, friends, and loved ones. This can be an extremely negative and difficult pattern to break, especially as they aren’t that good at handling conflict despite their attraction to it. They can suffer greatly when others launch a counterattack on them and target their hidden insecurities.

Until the age of twenty-eight they are likely to be concerned with issues of freedom and expanding their horizons through education, study or travel, but after the age of twenty-nine they are likely to develop a more pragmatic, orderly and structured approach to life, with a powerful emphasis on achieving their professional goals.

If they want to avoid road blocks to their success, and spending a great deal of time alone, it is crucial for them to learn to avoid engaging in conflict for the sake of it. This is because once they have learned to choose their battles wisely, they can save their energy for what really matters: developing their outstanding potential for becoming authoritative, innovative, expressive, and above all, truly motivational role models.

On the dark side

Argumentative, isolated, critical

At your best

Innovative, freespirited, discerning

Love Sweet talk

People born on November 23 are drawn to strong-willed individuals who show a lot of purpose and determination, like themselves. They are extremely seductive and charming, and can sweet talk even the most unlikely of people into a relationship. However, to keep that relationship going in the long term they have to learn to be less provocative and argumentative, making sure that they don’t confuse conflict with passion.

Health Just breathe

People born on this day may suffer from sensitive skin and allergies, particularly during the winter months when central heating takes over. They would benefit from more time spent outside in the fresh air, and gentle breathing exercises would help bring greater balance and calmness into their lives. Because they can be easily hurt, they may also be prone to bouts of reactive depression and feelings of being alone. Learning not to take everything so personally will help them develop a thicker and more resilient skin. As far as diet is concerned, they need to take simple steps each day to ensure that what they are putting into their mouth is as fresh and healthy as possible. Mild to moderate exercise, preferably outdoors, will also help balance their moods and keep their weight down. Spiritual disciplines such as meditation and yoga, or studying religion, will help them stay calm in the face of adversity, while meditating on the color purple will encourage them to think of higher things.

Career Born politicians

These people have leadership potential but they need work that gives them as much freedom as possible. They may decide to go into business for themselves rather than working for a company. Other work choices include education, law, science, writing, politics, and the world of entertainment, in particular acting and music.

Destiny To point the way forward to innovative change

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to be more objective. Once they are able to take control of their emotions and exercise good judgment, their destiny is to devise or point the way to innovative options for change and progress.
