If Your Birthday is Dec. 30
(The Day of Laconic Authority) | Capricorn Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Honesty is the best policy, and the message of your birthday chart is: this begins with being real with yourself. Note carefully when you’re in denial, and quickly change your thinking and be entirely honest. This will include a careful evaluation of your work life. Are you really doing what you want to do? If not, now is the time to make some changes.
Written in the Planets
Although the Moon entering Gemini today puts an intellectual spin on emotions, Venus is getting cozy with Eros. Yet that is happening in Capricorn, the sign of things like business. One way these energies could merge and manifest is in taking a very down-to-earth approach to solving a sexual ‘problem’. Another might be to play with keeping things hot on the inside even while you’re cool as a cucumber on the outside. Play with the contrasts and see what happens.
