If Your Birthday is Dec. 9
(The Day of Flamboyance) | Sagittarius Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
In order to take charge of your life, you must set aside a desire to be liked or appreciated. The desire to be popular too often implies you will act like the people whose values and priorities you don’t share. Being the master of your own life might make you unpopular with others. You have your agenda and nobody but you has to approve of it, or of you.
Written in the Planets
What do you want? If you know, are you willing to ask for it? How deep does this desire run — emotionally, physically, sexually, spiritually, creatively? Mars entering Scorpio today suggests a newly refreshed ability to recognize and go for what you desire. With Scorpio being a fixed sign, it also warns against being too strong-willed and stubborn about it. Remember to listen to the responses you’re getting — from other people, from within yourself, from your environment, from your intuition — and adjust accordingly. With the Sagittarius Sun trine Ceres in Leo, you can express the twin flames of heart and spirit in ways that nourish.
