If Your Birthday is Dec. 21
(The Day of the Great Enigma) | Birthday Readings: Sagittarius | Capricorn | Others
Today’s magnificent conjunction of the Sun and your ruling planet Saturn, in your birth sign, on your birthday, is a blessing from the cosmos. For one thing, you know that if you set a goal and are willing to work toward it, nothing is out of reach. You can feel good about yourself, and you can reach the financial success you aspire to.
Written in the Planets
Today’s extraordinary astrology invites you to begin a new era in your life. It might not feel so very momentous right away; but once Mercury has turned and is once again flying forwards, the picture will likely start to become clearer. Consider this a phase of review and evaluation, which is as much about recognizing and preparing to discard what you don’t need, as inviting in what you do. Start deciding on the ground rules and your aspirational goals. These are the foundations on which you can then, if you wish, build an entirely new way of being.
