If Your Birthday is Dec. 6
(The Day of Extraction) | Sagittarius Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Normally you would rather not have your space crowded, though it’s time to acknowledge that you need some loving contact with your fellow creatures. That will mean more closeness than you’re accustomed to. If you think this will shape up your life, even a little, you’re correct. When intimacy is offered to you, you’ll be happiest if you go toward it and not away.
Written in the Planets
Retrograde Mercury is sliding back over its recent contacts with Saturn, Pholus and the Galactic Core. You may find yourself reconsidering insights you came to last week, especially regarding parent-child dynamics or your authority over your life. Or you may find yourself diving deeper into whatever ‘cosmic message’ came through. Listen carefully to that inner voice; notice any parallels, echoes or inversions; and be sure to take notes. ‘Ah ha’ moments that come with contacts to the Galactic Core sometimes have a way of getting forgotten, so it’s nice to leave yourself a bread-crumb trail to follow. This will be especially useful come early January, when Mercury moves through the territory for a third time. By then, the landscape will have shifted somewhat — but the lessons gleaned now are likely to still be useful.
