If Your Birthday is Dec. 8
(The Day of Abandon) | Sagittarius Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Most people are wary of change, sometimes even when it looks positively glittering compared to the status quo. Yet everything in the universe is in flux, and so are you. Don’t be afraid to embrace the mutable in you; it’s essential both to your growth and to the creation of a brighter world.
Written in the Planets
The inner planets aspecting centaurs today suggest that we’re starting to feel the new paradigm we are about to enter. By that, I mean personally, in our daily activities. I know you may be concerned, to say the least. Remember, though, that we’re in this together. In our individual lives, often we have to make the best of things; though we always can (and should) help one another. Collectively, we have the power to make things better. The two approaches are by no means mutually exclusive.
