If Your Birthday is Dec. 2
(The Day of Larger-than-Life) | Sagittarius Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
If you find yourself trying to reconcile opposites today (be they beliefs, desires, creative impulses, emotions or something else), consider looking to the dreamtime. It’s astonishing how often our dreams embody paradoxes and merge the impossible, offering clues to waking-life dilemmas. Should you prefer something more ‘embodied’, travel (even just to a different neighborhood) or physical exercise could help you shift perspective enough to find your way to some newfound optimism. Take full advantage of that energy.
Written in the Planets
Mercury enters its pre-retrograde ‘shadow’ or ‘echo’ phase today, while in late Sagittarius. As it does, it aspects a couple of interesting minor objects: Salacia and Typhon. Together, the trio seems to suggest a situation where emotional placidness may actually be causing some intellectual tension for you — tension that might be assuaged by letting your ‘inner monster’ erupt in pursuit of justice. Just for a moment. We live in a culture where so-called negative emotions (like anger) can be ‘scary’. But that is only because we forget how to use them as constructive tools. Later in the day Mercury will enter Capricorn, offering a more grounded frame of mind.
