8 November- the birthday of dark fascination
Although they are blessed with imaginative and progressive minds, people born on November 8 can come across as serious or intense. They tend to be attracted to unusual subjects that others would consider borderline, shadowy or dark. In some cases their interests may even be considered peculiar or, at the very least, out of the ordinary.
They are brilliant at concentrating their energy on achieving their goals, and this, combined with their courage and ambition, augurs well for professional success. Many will attract money their way, rise to the top of their career or make a comfortable standard of living an important goal in their lives. Sometimes the desire to achieve materially can be so strong that it becomes overpowering in its intensity; it is important for these people to remember what is truly important in life.
It is their curiosity which draws these people to the shadowy aspects of life, and a part of them longs to push the boundaries of knowledge and experience to their limits. If they are able to maintain objectivity they have the potential to be innovating pioneers; but if they can’t keep their distance, there is a real risk of their becoming too closely identified with the darker aspects of the world and the shadow side of themselves.
Until the age of thirty-three, the urge for these people to explore that unconventional is at its strongest; during these years they need to remember that, as fascinating as the unconventional is, there is also much to be learned from what is routine. After the age of thirty-four there is a turning point when they start to become more practical, disciplined and goal-oriented in the realization of their objectives. Whatever age they are, however, the key to their success is their ability to confront their inner fears rather than seeking it outside. When they can do this, their hunger to explore the meaning of life will inevitably draw them away from the darkness within to the light of understanding, compassion, love, and what is truly important in life.
Your greatest challenge is… developing a sense of humor
The way forward is… to understand that if you take yourself too seriously you will lose the sense of perspective and objectivity you need to make good judgments.
On the dark side: Obsessed, overly serious, addictive
At your best: Deep, driven, inquisitive
Love matches: Virgo, Capricorn, and Pisces
Born between November 1 and November 10- People born in the first couple of weeks of November are not afraid of obstacles or challenges in any way. In fact, they positively thrive on them and love nothing better than trying to prove that no one can stop them-and as a result, more often than not, no one can.
