If Your Birthday is Dec. 17
(The Day of Earthy Chemistry) | Sagittarius Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Act only when you’re ready. Interposing a short delay between making a decision and taking action will almost always work to your advantage. Leave yourself time and space to prove your theory, to come up with a better plan, or for additional information to come in, and then make your move. If you’re feeling rushed, that’s the time to slow down.
Written in the Planets
The dark of the Moon can be rather tense sometimes, to say the least. Today, with the Sun forming a conjunction to Ixion, you’ll need to step with extra care to ensure you don’t accidentally tread on someone’s toes. Keep your best and most compassionate side uppermost; and be proactive in preventing any possible misconstruction of your words, by framing them as clearly as you can. If you find yourself becoming irritated for whatever reason, remember that everything passes and perspectives can change, and consider carefully before taking any action. You’ll likely feel differently tomorrow.
