(April 23rd) The Day of Adopted Security
Strengths: Social, Secure, Careful
Weaknesses: Inflexible, Anxious, Repressed
Those born on April 23 seek the best haven for their considerable talents and will not rest until they have established themselves under the auspices of a recognised or powerful organisation. This does not necessarily mean that they will be employed directly by that organisation, though it is often the case, but that the organisation will serve as a kind of "patron" for them, perhaps recommending them to others and opening doors. April 23 people can often be found marrying into a family which will take them under its wing. Those born on this day care little for an isolated life; they need to exert their power within a larger social sphere. Financial success and security are paramount importance to them.
Those in the arts (writers, journalists, painters) or in business (manufactures or shopkeepers) rely on building up a following which will, year in and year out, continue to buy their books or their products. April 23 people who perform a service (doctors, lawyers, accountants) will carefully build a clientele, knowing that without it they are lost. April 23 people manage to express themselves as individuals within the family or professional sphere, but they will never want to be so outspoken as to lose the support of the group with which they are involved. In these respects they are very dependent on the good will and trust of others.
A danger exists to this much-needed security from the impulsive side of their nature which craves excitement. Those born on this day many at times act rashly, jeopardising their position. If April 23 people are able to direct a longing for change and stimulation into their work, while keeping their personal lives in balance, they will succeed; if not, they may disrupt both their business and family life with all sorts of impulsive schemes.
April 23 people are more than happy to continue in a chosen activity for a lifetime. If they repress their individuality too much, however, they run the risk of losing the interest of others. The trick for them is to regularly innovate, to bring to the fore well-though-out new projects which will move them forward. Should they settle for a contented stick-in-the-mud existence they will be working at cross purposes with their own highly creative nature.
An April 23 person often has a sharp, keen eye for the foibles of others, and a very deep understanding of human character and motives. Care must be taken to use this highly insightful and incisive bent constructively, especially if teaching or parenting. April 23 people must wield their considerable influence over others wisely and from time to time exercise control over their nimble minds and sharp tongues.
Numbers and Planets:
Those born on the 23rd of the month are ruled by the number 5 (2+3=5), and by the planet Mercury. Since Mercury represents quickness of thought and change, those born on this day must find a way to balance such energy with a strong need for security; they may have to reign in those impulses which have them driving in the fast lane, impulses which are emphasized by the influences of Mars and Venus (rulers of Aries and Taurus, respectively). Fortunately, the hard knocks that those ruled by the number 5 receive in life typically will have little lasting effect.
The 5th card of the Major Arcana is The Hierophant, an interpreter of sacred mysteries who is symbolic of human understanding and of faith. His knowledge is esoteric and he has authority over things unseen. Favourable traits conferred by this card are self-assuredness, absence of doubt and proper interpretation; unfavourable traits are moralising, bombast and dogmatism.
April 23 people must be careful to prepare for their old age. Too often they sink into fixed, repetitive habits as they get older which rob them of a youthful capacity for change, and can literally cripple them. Therefore continued mild to moderate exercise is advisable. Spending time with their grandchildren, and/or doing volunteer work with children will keep them lively and in touch with youthful energies. Those born on this day are vulnerable to arthritis of all sorts, particularly of the neck. They are also prone to hearing loss and dizziness -- in extreme case, Meniere's syndrome. Particularly with arthritis, a regular program of moderate physical exercise can stave off deterioration and stiffening of joints, and maintain a greater degree of flexibility into old age. Their tastes in food are quite sophisticated and wide-ranging, but their love of bread, butter and pastries can be fatal. This desire for earth foods should be guided in the direction of cereals, rice, bulgar and polenta.
Have more confidence in your ability to operate on your own. Beware of becoming fixed; try to be more flexible. Let your emotions out and follow your hunches. Balance your personal life. Don't be afraid to speak your mind, but be tactful and kind.

(November 9th) The Day of Earthly Temptation
Strengths: Physical, Insistent, Open
Weaknesses: Impulsive, Troubled, Materially Stuck
Those born on November 9 face a tremendous temptation to give themselves completely to the here and now, to earthly pleasures of all types, and to submerge themselves in an unremitting search for experiential highs. They are often completely caught up in the excitement of what they are doing at the moment, and thus not fully aware of dark forces that may operating behind their drives. For those born on this day to look themselves squarely in the eye is a tremendous and potentially rewarding challenge, as is learning how to direct their prodigious talents and energies in a constructive and productive way.
Temptation itself figures as a major theme in the lives of November 9 people and along with it corresponding moral dilemmas involving upbringing vs. adult experience, societal vs. personal morality, etc. Usually the ethical instincts of those born on this day are well developed, so when they sin, they are fully aware of what they are doing. Nevertheless, some born on this day may reach a point where they are only able to find satisfaction, whether mental or physical, when engaged in dangerous, shadowy or outright illicit activities.
A very positive theme central to the lives of these complex people is the joy of discovery. Often they emerge from their intense experiences having made important realisations about themselves and life itself. Those November 9 people who grow more philosophical with age are capable of withdrawing into a contemplative or meditative state where they can assess their actions and make prudent choices for the future. Still, even after acquiring a large measure of wisdom, those born on this day rarely pause in the thick of battle to ponder their direction; for them, such work is to be done afterwards, preferably in tranquility.
November 9 people live close to the edge, and therefore must learn to protect themselves. In addition it is important for them to maintain respect for their fellow human beings, and to beware of becoming mercenary in their relationships. As they are highly sensitive to rejection, those born on this day also face the danger of retreating into themselves, nursing private grudges and fears, and even in extreme cases coming to live in a dark fantasy world.
More highly evolved individuals born on November 9 use their profound relationship with the dark side to gain insight into how life and the universe work, and equally important, learn to share these insights with others. Like Orpheus rising from the underworld, November 9 people must never look back but constantly move onward and upward toward the light. The greatest danger is that they will get stuck (particularly in the physical-material realm), and for this reason should set themselves high moral and ethical, albeit worldly, goals.
Numbers and Planets:
Those born on the 9th of the month are ruled by the number 9 and by the planet Mars. The number 9 is powerful in its influence on other numbers (any number added to 9 yields that number: e.g., 5+9=14, 4+1=5, and any number multiplied by 9 yields a 9: e.g., 9x5=45, 4+5=9), and the ability of November 9 people to influence others is similarly enhanced. The planet Mars is forceful and aggressive, embodying male energy, and for November 9 people (both men and women) this is doubly true since Mars is also co-ruler of their sign, Scorpio. When combined with Pluto (principal ruler of Scorpio), Mar's potential for ruthlessness and blind ambition is augmented -- but so is the potential for meaningful and deeply transformative changes.
The 9th card of the Tarot's Major Arcana is The Hermit, who is usually depicted walking with a lantern and a stick; he represents meditation, isolation and quietude. The card also signifies crystallised wisdom and practiced discipline. The Hermit is a taskmaster who motivates by conscience and guides others on their path. The positive side of this card is stick-to-it-iveness, purpose, profundity and concentration; negative qualities include dogmatism, intolerance, mistrust and discouragement. November 9 people must beware of becoming too withdrawn from the world, like the Hermit, but perhaps can learn from his positive introspection.
Those born on November 9 at some point will have to deal with their internal emotional rollercoaster. Ups and downs might be evened out by a balanced diet and plenty of exercise; perhaps practicing yoga and meditation could also prove beneficial. Foodwise, it may be necessary to cut down on yang foods (particularly meat), and to move more in the direction of vegetarian diet. Vigorous activities that favour betterment of objective goals (gymnastics, rock climbing, surfing, etc.) may meet the rugged appetites of November 9 people. Plenty of sleep is important, but should not be abused as an escape from the waking world.
Cultivate your spiritual side. Learn to float. Don't just enjoy your pleasures -- be aware of their effect. Step back from time to time and observe yourself living. Heed your inner voice and follow your higher self.

[V Report Plus] Twice enjoys tropical fruits during music video shoot
(Naver's V app)
The fourth episode of Twice’s brand new reality show “Dance the Night Away,” named after its new single, features the band’s nine members enjoying tropical fruits while filming their most recent music video.
“This is so amazing,” Chaeyoung said, munching on a piece of pineapple. Jeongyeon liked the green mango best.
They were so focused on enjoying the fruit that they were speechless for a long while.
The tri-national girl group is having its most prolific year yet, releasing two Korean extended plays and four Japanese singles to date, with another full-length album coming this September.
