If Your Birthday is Dec. 12
(The Day of Body Language) | Sagittarius Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
It’s your choice who you accept into your life and who you do not. And you’ll want to exercise that power consciously this year, allowing certain people to be close to you and keeping others at a safe distance, as you see fit. Yet even if you have a high standard, it must be one that others can meet. It must be attainable, that is, if you want to share your life with others.
Written in the Planets
This week’s astrology includes several key events as we lead up to Saturn changing signs in one week. Today, the conjunction between Vesta and Jupiter in Scorpio could take many forms; one of which is the need to expand our collective sense of devotion to sexual healing, and to hold space for that process in ourselves and in others. This might mean allowing yourself to focus more on pleasure, or on unspoken desires. Has sexual pleasure, and the deep psychological benefits that can ripple out from it, been missing for you? For many people, there’s tremendous pain and trauma to be worked through in this realm; though as with surfing, you also have to remember to look where you want to go in order to get there. Today’s Mercury-Sun conjunction in Sagittarius marks the midpoint of Mercury’s current retrograde. Hang in there — and continue to double-check the details of everything you plan to do, say or buy.
