If Your Birthday is Dec. 3
(The Day of Ingenuity) | Sagittarius Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
There’s just one imperative in your life, which is being honest about how you feel. Many people want to have influence over this most personal inner dynamic, and they have no business doing so. Sort out your sincere emotions from what family and living partners think is best for you. Before long you’ll get enough traction to assert your independence.

Are you of two minds regarding the concept of ‘freedom’ — especially your own? That might sound like an odd question. Who doesn’t like their freedom, right? But you’d be surprised by how many people willingly keep themselves chained: to old beliefs, to their parents’ expectations, to religious dogma, to lies they can see right through. Our culture seems to have a knack for espousing the glory of freedom, and then failing to notice the ways we restrict ourselves — blaming it on others the whole time. Today’s Full Moon opposition between the Sun in Sagittarius and the Moon in Gemini — square Neptune in Pluto — could bring these dynamics and hypocrisies to the fore. Meanwhile, Mercury stationing retrograde today gives everything another level of spin. Remind yourself to pay extra attention in everything you do today, especially if you tend to multitask. And keep a sharp ear out for new information slipping through.
