One thing I'm working on personally these days is discerning between attachment and connection. It's easy to confuse attachment with connection. Connection is mostly love. Attachment is mostly fear. Connection is magnetic. Attachment adheres by grasping. I've heard that one path to freedom is in letting go of attachments. Well, it's something to try.
The sun is in Sagittarius, the moon in Aries and the fire sign energy is ablaze. What does it mean for you? This could be an exciting day. Make something happen.

One key difference between a narcissist and someone with full levels of empathy and social awareness is that the narcissist is incapable of entering another person's world. They only see and relate to themselves.

It's a favorite number for some who decide to marry or make major decisions on this day. Ellen DeGeneres even named a company Eleven Eleven. Do you have an 11/11 story? Would love to hear about it in the comments!
The Libra lunar influence brings a collaborative spirit to the day's events. This air-sign aspect also adds some much-needed levity to the Scorpio sky. Everything does not have to be intense. It could go that way if you choose to take it in that direction, but know that intensity is optional. If you're willing to look for it, there will be a light version to try on.
and in that spirit... this is my daughter and my absolute favorite silliness:
