departs from the sign on or about the 21st of November. The Sun on entering the sign should be given six days

These people are allied to the great powers of the ocean of this planet, and are possessed of a wonderful
vibratory force, which gives them a great vitality through electro-magnetic influences. So marked is this power
that they are able to benefit all who are closely connected with them. Their personal presence is a healing. They
possess indomitable will and self-control, and remarkable skill in the use of their hands. Their touch is so firm
and delicate, their observation so keen, their poise so perfect, that they make the best surgeons in the world.

element under all circumstances, however trying. Such persons are often considered unfeeling and unsympathetic,

One strong characteristic of these people is a silent, dignified superiority of appearance. This is a very
important factor in their success. They are usually courteous and affable when not engaged in serious business;
then they can be blunt to cruelty.

and show as their Cancer neighbors. They are especially fond of outdoor sports, and are natural lovers of ocean
travel and ocean views.

and devoted to humanity. The reverse of this is also true.
They usually have so much business of their own to carry to success that they are not curious concerning the
affairs of their neighbors.They have large self-esteem and approbativeness to match. Flattery is the most powerful
weapon that can be used with the average Scorpio person.
