If Your Birthday is Jan. 12
(The Day of the Wild Call) | Capricorn Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Take time to focus and get your head in the right place. Your plans will keep, and they will probably be all the better for the ripening. Use your energies as wisely as you can, and check often to ensure you are not pushing yourself harder than necessary. There’s more than one possible route for this journey.
Written in the Planets
Today’s Full Moon involves a relatively rare aspect that astrologers call a ‘grand cross’, meaning four objects at 90 degrees apart around the circle. In this case, that’s the Sun, the Moon, Jupiter and Eris, all at 22+ degrees of their respective signs. Eric spoke of this pattern in Tuesday’s Planet Waves FM. This could pan out in a number of different ways, though it would certainly help you to indulge your creative side today, where possible. Keep a pen handy, so you have the means of recall if clever ideas start cropping up. You may get some surprising ones.
