Happy birthday, November-30 born! And can I just follow that greeting up with a hearty “whoa!” and an impressed “wow!” I’m floored by the level of talent found in people born on this day, though I’m not in the least surprised. It is well known in Swami circles that this day carries a heavy vibe of creativity and ambition, so naturally you are born today. I would also like to point out that people born on this day are fairly tenacious; they often are extremely focused and determined—just look at your fellow birthdayers! We have Madame Grès, who sacrificed her personal life for her art; Gordon Parks, who never accepted what was expected; and Omahyra, who continues to break barriers and push the expectations of what it means to be a model. And this is where your Stylescope comes into play. You’ve got a huge year ahead of you, 11/30ier. When I was channeling your Stylescope, I saw a lot of support from the universe for your upcoming endeavors and projects. But I want to make sure that you maintain a balance of focus and clarity—too much ambition can result in too much tunnel-vision, a case of not-seeing-the forest for the trees. So promise me you will reserve downtime as well as drive-time, m-kay?
As for your style, I want you to go for it. Much in the way that I’d like to see you push your ideas and inspirations, I want you to think of your appearance as an extension of your passions. So eschew the little black dress for an electric blue one. Rip the hem of your skirt higher. Wear flats when heels are expected. Forget “think pink;” you should “think zinc.” My point is that I want you to stretch expectations and assumptions; you don’t have to offend (if you don’t want to). I just want to see you make double-takes. This is your year, Sagittarian. And I can’t wait to see how you express it. —The Style Swami
