If Your Birthday is Dec. 14
(The Day of the Selective Exhibitionist) | Sagittarius Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
There’s nothing like some good planning to direct an expansive impulse, and to keep the metaphorical engine running in a controlled, even-paced way. That said, you’ll still need to listen to the riddles posed by your emotions. You might be tempted to think emotions ‘aren’t part of the plan’. But if they’re causing you to question whose plan you’re actually running in the first place (or why), that’s a mystery you’ll want to solve. If the answer results in redirecting your efforts, chances are it’s for the best.
Written in the Planets
When the Moon enters Cancer today, see if you don’t notice a clear urge to nest begin to emerge. Should you need to catch up on some holiday preparations or non-holiday domestic tasks, a Cancer Moon could help. As an extra bonus, spiffing up your nest — or the emotional equivalent: a little self-care or caring gestures toward loved ones — is excellent preparation for another aspect today. With Neptune conjunct the asteroid Eros in Pisces, imaginative sexual expression or exploration (or even art-making) could be on the agenda. The more emotionally connected you are — solo or otherwise — and the more boundless your fantasies, the better.
