We came to lose our leaves
Like the trees, and be born again,
Drawing up from the great roots.”
— Robert Bly

If Your Birthday is Dec. 23
(The Day of the Groundbreakers) | Capricorn Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Many of the worries you’ve faced for so long are a thing of the past. Yet if you find yourself experiencing any emotional residue of the past, address that directly and honestly. First, that means never blaming others for how you feel. Monitor carefully the words you use, and the stories you tell yourself. And for maximum happiness, avoid gossip in any form.
Written in the Planets
Saturn conjunct Quaoar today in Capricorn brings home the ways that your own family’s patterns may mirror those of big business or the government. If you’re not sure you like what you see, how can you choose differently? What other rhythm could you dance to, and what would you bring into being in the process? When the Moon enters Pisces this morning, it harmonizes with all of those early-Capricorn planets. “Peace on Earth, goodwill toward all beings (human or not)” could well be the vibe of the day — especially if you take the initiative to embody it yourself and offer it to everyone you meet.
