If Your Birthday is Dec. 15
(The Day of Expansion) | Sagittarius Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Sometimes, when you’ve had a bit too much coffee, it’s necessary to go for a fast walk to burn off your excess vigor. As the universe seems about to give you a triple shot of espresso, it could well be worth making plans for the energy boost that will almost certainly follow. Where you direct it is entirely up to you.
Written in the Planets
There is palpable tension in the air, the same kind that accumulates before the breaking of a storm. If you’re at all feeling this, I suggest you take some deep breaths and waft yourself gently into a more centered state. Do something pleasant that you know you’ll enjoy. Once the metaphorical skies are a little clearer, you’ll likely find that you are able to consider a certain matter with a fresh perspective. In the meantime, even small gestures directed toward serving the higher good could develop surprisingly helpful results.
