If Your Birthday is Dec. 24
(The Day of Complex Emotions) | Capricorn Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Recognize a blessing when you see it. It could come as a compliment. It might be an endorsement. Someone might share one of your photos. A person you admire might tell you the one good thing they see in your work. Don’t brush it off or take it for granted. Rather, take it to heart, and remember who notices you. Remember who cares, and stay in contact with them.
Written in the Planets
Today Jupiter forms an exact square to the lunar nodes. If Saturn in Capricorn speaks of manifestation, this aspect represents the spiritual component, the spring from which the idea arises. Mercury has turned direct and is about to begin picking up speed once more: this is the moment to check in with your personal dharmic path and make any necessary course adjustments. A small change effected now in the service of your personal growth can be seen as an investment in your future movements.
