The Raven September 22 - October 22
Raven Character Harmonious and peaceful interaction is very important for people born under the sign of the Raven, and that's why Ravens are often diplomatic and accomodating. They have a strong sense of fairness and justice. These qualities make them ideal mediators.
Being alone is particularly difficult for them. This accounts for the fact that they usually feel safe and more comfortable in groups and larger communities. They also dislike confrontations and would prefer to walk away from tricky situations than deal with them. Raven people always make an effort to see both sides of an issue and are masters in the deliberative processes. These traits, however, often keep them from making spontaneous decisions and forming opinions, which could mean missing important opportunities. In addition, Raven people have a tendency to be influenced by others.
People born under the sign of the Raven usually have a well-developed sense of beauty and aesthetics. It is not uncommon for them to have musical and artistic talents. They have a great need to be well-groomed and elegant, often concentrating too much on externals. They observe people and things very carefully, at least in terms of outward appearance, but sometimes fail to discover what's inside.
Love Ravens seek out company and, therefore, need to have relationships more than people born under other signs. Turning to and showing devotion to a partner is an important key to their happiness. Charming and obliging as they are, they are masters of seduction, blessed in the art of living and loving. Flirting is a favorite preoccupation of Ravens.
Long live love and relationships! The single life was not invented by Ravens. They suffer a great deal when they have to live alone and will muster as much charm as they can to please and hold on to their partner and to avoid differences. In matters of the heart, Ravens give importance to all things relating to harmony and cooperation--even if they are totally submissive. They know what they want and have a great need for diversion and social connections.
Career Since Ravens are very cooperative and approachable, they rarely try to go it alone. They prefer working within a group or team. They are people who, to a great degree, contribute much to a comfortable working environment. But Ravens would do well, every now and then, to promote their own interests in a more spirited and energetic way. Because of their propensity toward the creative and beautiful things in life, they feel particularly comfortable where these criteria are met--such as in fashion, art, antiques, architecture, or engineering.
Vitality Ravens also should make sure they stay fit with consistent physical or athletic activities. Especially important are exercises that strengthen the back and pelvis, helping them stay in balance both physically and intellectually.
The Young Raven Even at a very young age, Ravens display a style and charm that is simply delightful. Generally speaking, these fledglings don't need to resort to temper tantrums or angry outbursts to get what they want. All they have to do is let people see their beaming smile. Since Ravens hate friction, regardless of age, they won't be much trouble to parents or teachers.
There are, however, some things that are difficult for the young Raven, making concrete and resolute decisions. It does not matter if the subject is homework or choosing what sweater to wear. The young Raven needs a lot of time for simple, everyday decisions. This can be nerve-racking for parents. They will do their child a great favor by giving simple, straight-forward directions, but not all the time. Young Ravens need to learn how to decide for themselves.
This also applies to the child's powerful need for peace, which leads him to avoid open confrontations. He will always try to be conciliatory, which, of course, does not always work. Sooner or later this child must learn that weighing both sides is not always possible. Sometimes it is necessary to stand up for one's own needs and interests. Young Ravens must learn not to say yes when they mean no.
