“It is unjust and absurd of those advancing in years, to expect of the young that confidence should come all and only on their side: the human heart, at whatever age, opens only to the heart that opens in return.”
— Maria Edgeworth

If Your Birthday is Jan. 1
(The Day of the Emotional Organizer) | Capricorn Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Too often, our childhood aspirations are quashed, determinedly, by an adult figure. This is a time for you to discard that programming and revisit your youthful dreams. Don’t listen to anyone who tells you to be realistic when what they actually mean is ‘just give up’. Being realistic about an ambition need only require understanding that getting there is a process. Knowing this, you’re ready to take the next steps.

Where relationships or intimacy are concerned, don’t be afraid to experiment or use your imagination. Provided there is always care to respect personal boundaries and safety, it’s not only acceptable but important to express your deep desires. Don’t be afraid to try new ideas, too — even if only in the recesses of your mind, although two heads are usually better than one. Exploring creatively is a key part of enjoyment that is sometimes missed.
