“We do not ask for what useful purpose the birds do sing, for song is their pleasure since they were created for singing. Similarly, we ought not to ask why the human mind troubles to fathom the secrets of the heavens. The diversity of the phenomena of nature is so great and the treasures hidden in the heavens so rich precisely in order that the human mind shall never be lacking in fresh nourishment.”
— Johannes Kepler

If Your Birthday is Dec. 27
(The Day of the Clever Contributor) | Capricorn Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
We learn all our lives, and you’re likely to have an opportunity to experience that truth more literally than usual. If you have wishes in terms of education, formal or otherwise, this seems like a good time to start planning toward their fulfillment, or to take a step forward. Doing this will almost certainly give impetus to your creative powers.
Written in the Planets
It is a simple fact that human beings are social animals. We cannot live without at least interacting with one another, and our existence is immeasurably enriched by practicing love, generosity and compassion. As we prepare to round off 2016, Vesta is suggesting that each of us examine how we might increase or refine that practice. Is there a cause you want to speak up for, a particular person in your life to whom you want to lend extra support, a charity for which you would like to volunteer? One thing is certain: just now, there is an abundance of possibilities.
