“Every day we slaughter our finest impulses. That is why we get a heartache when we read those lines written by the hand of a master and recognize them as our own, as the tender shoots which we stifled because we lacked the faith to believe in our own powers, our own criterion of truth and beauty. Every man, when he gets quiet, when he becomes desperately honest with himself, is capable of uttering profound truths. We all derive from the same source. there is no mystery about the origin of things. We are all part of creation, all kings, all poets, all musicians; we have only to open up, only to discover what is already there.”
— Henry Miller

If Your Birthday is Dec. 26
(The Day of the Indomitable One) | Capricorn Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Pause when you feel like you’re under pressure that you don’t understand. Notice when you feel as if you’re being pushed around, especially by the influences of your family. You’re at a stage in life when your single most important mission is taking charge of your life in a fully conscious way — which means being aware of “unconscious” influences.
Written in the Planets
Today’s first quarter Moon amid other astrology is a reminder that we all have something unique to contribute to the world. This starts, more often than not, with learning to express your personal truth. That means identifying your passions and aspirations, and finding ways to pursue them sincerely and with integrity. Not only does this help fulfill your calling; it ignites the courage of others to follow your example. This can be done gradually: one task, one day, or one brush stroke at a time.
