If Your Birthday is Dec. 27
(The Day of the Clever Contributor) | Capricorn Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Confidence is rarely handed to you like a holiday gift, though your astrology is describing just that. Yet to have this gift, you must receive it consciously. True self-assurance is quiet, it’s subtle and it’s mostly experienced inwardly. It’s the feeling of knowing that you’re right with yourself; that you have what you need, or you’re capable of getting it. These things are true.
Written in the Planets
The asteroid Eros, in early Capricorn, makes a series of aspects today. When Venus makes the same aspects tomorrow into Friday, you may have an opportunity to reinforce any insights that come through regarding how you express your sexual energy, and its practical applications in intimate relationships. Understanding how things came to be as they are could spur you to action; and insights regarding old sexual patterns and current fears could lend assistance toward crossing a threshold. Tomorrow’s approaching trine between Mars in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces offers integrity and heightened awareness of others’ sexual and emotional needs and desires. Use that awareness with compassion.
