“To say that a thing is imaginary is not to dispose of it in the realm of mind, for the imagination, or the image making faculty, is a very important part of our mental functioning. An image formed by the imagination is a reality from the point of view of psychology; it is quite true that it has no physical existence, but are we going to limit reality to that which is material? We shall be far out of our reckoning if we do, for mental images are potent things, and although they do not actually exist on the physical plane, they influence it far more than most people suspect.”
— Dion Fortune

If Your Birthday is Dec. 6
(The Day of Extraction) | Sagittarius Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
If you’ve felt slighted at all recently, consider where you might be locating your power. If you’ve placed it with someone else, consciously realizing that offers you a fantastic opportunity to reclaim it. You have the ability to envision a different way of expressing and meeting your emotional needs. In fact, if you pay attention while journeying in the dreamtime, you might notice at least two options.
Written in the Planets
Today’s the day to break out of any kind of rut or routine that you might be chafing at. If you’re not sure where to begin, start with your social circles: by seeking out your more stimulating, eccentric or unpredictable friends, you’ll be more likely to spark up your day in a satisfying way. Mars in Aquarius is sextile Uranus in Aries, piquing your restlessness — and the stamina to support it. In fact, that aspect also suggests the ability to make practical use of whatever insights result from your adventuring. Meanwhile, the Pisces Moon conjoins Neptune today. Put all that visionary energy and emotional sensitivity to some newfound creative use.
