If Your Birthday is Dec. 9
(The Day of Flamboyance) | Sagittarius Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Be open to intuitive hints — the more surprising the better. If you find yourself particularly eager to put your energy into some larger cause or a group activity, chances are your time will be well spent. This is especially true if you have the opportunity to learn from someone ‘in authority’, or if you feel like you’re fulfilling a responsibility. No matter what, you have the potential to benefit from virtually anything you choose to focus on today.
Written in the Planets
As if tuning into the news was not enough to get the hint, today’s astrology suggests you get to work on social justice issues — especially the ‘surprise’ issues of this year. With the Sagittarius Sun exactly sextile Jupiter in Libra today, the idea is to aim high and think big. As in, act on your conscious awareness of your role in some cause, project or activity that is larger than yourself. With Mars in Aquarius contacting both Eris in Aries and Black Moon Lilith in Scorpio, notice if any facets of the ‘shadow feminine’ are facilitating (or provoking) what you want and how you go about getting it, including sexually. Specifically, watch for any marginalized parts of yourself asking for attention. How is it showing up (or insisting on being recognized) in any groups you participate in?
