Being a Scorpio born on November 12th, you are defined by an outward shyness and inner determination. You will work tirelessly to achieve the goals you set for yourself, which is something that can be said for most Scorpios. Unlike other Scorpios, you may go about your work in a more shy manner, preferring working in the background instead of the limelight. Even your family and closest friends are not above your shy inclinations, as there are people who have known you for years without getting a glimpse of your secret self. Luckily, your shyness also makes you interesting and mysterious to others.

Water

The Scorpio's paired element is water and in fact, you are the only zodiac sign to have a fixed relationship to the element. You often dive into the deep oceans of emotions and in doing so, you gain great emotional understanding. Water's influence is key to your compassion, but similar to a forceful river, it is also responsible for your determination. Continued embrace of water's positive qualities will assist your personal growth, but be careful that diving too deeply in emotions can lead to moodiness.

Pluto is your sign's planetary ruler, but as you were born in the second Decan, or part, of the sign, you also receive planetary influence from Neptune. While it is Pluto that is linked to your need for power and growth, it is Neptune's planetary power that is reflected in your sensitivity and compassion. Your unique combination of planetary influences makes you more artistically inclined and sensitive than the other Scorpio Decans, yet just as determined. Your sensitivity is key to the artistic vision that you value so highly and makes you the nurturing and caring person that those around you appreciate so greatly. However, your sensitivity can become detrimental if your fear of being hurt leads you to becoming emotionally closed off. Open up to your loved ones, as this will help them understand your emotional highs and lows.

While choosing a career is difficult, your natural abilities can lead to success in a variety of careers. Careers that combine creativity and emotional understanding may be a fit, such as advertising, public relations, or business. Your need for artistic expression may translate into a career in music or writing, which was the case of singer Neil Young, who was also born on November 13th. If the entertainment world is appealing, look to the rising career of Ryan Gosling, another of your celebrity birthday twins.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is a woman drawing aside two dark curtains that closed the entrance to a sacred pathway. While it easy to fear the unknown, it is much more rewarding to plunge ahead into the proverbial darkness. You may surprised to discover what lies beyond your comfort zone.
