HAPPY BIRTHDAY PRINCESS ÉLISABETH, DUCHESS OF BRABANT | 25 October 2001

Even today, lives are shattered by war. Fathers, mothers and children are suffering or are separated. But their misfortune also teach us about courage and dignity. The willpower in their eyes invites us to take a stand for a better world of justice and peace. It comes to us, the youth, to keep our torches high and, like today, form a light front.

R4R Zodiac Royalty: Scorpio (Sun)

23 October- 21 November

Element: Water

Scorpio is the sign of mystery, intensity and passion. It is sometimes referred to as the “sexual sign” because its inhabitants often seem to ooze sex appeal. They are dedicated friends and excellent partners… for the most part. Scorpios have a reputation for straying to other beds, but have an uncanny ability to keep it covered up. They have an innate charisma and a certain X factor that is hard to put a finger on, but that is just the way Scorpios like it. They have a quiet intensity that makes an excellent leadership quality. Scorpios stay very well-informed about others while only allowing what they want known about themselves. They prefer to operate in stealth mode while gaining leverage on those they view as potential threats. Their passion runs deep and can border on obsession, whether it be with a hobby or an old flame. Scorpios rarely forget an insult and will wait years for the perfect opportunity for revenge. Their power isn’t boasted or thrown around gregariously, but reserved until the exact moment of execution. Scorpios always get what they desire.
