If Your Birthday is Dec. 28
(The Day of Simple Sophistication) | Capricorn Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
If you’re feeling playful, then play. If you’re feeling creative, make art. If you’re feeling sexy, have some of the fun. However, you cannot just sit around and wait for these things to happen. They all depend upon your initiative: that is, on your choice to say yes to life. That involves taking a chance; though, as the old saying goes, nothing attempted, nothing gained.
Written in the Planets
Pisces tends to be a sign associated with seeing the interconnectedness of all things, and today’s trine between Mars in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces has that flavor. Scorpio might intensify your sense of the importance of that interconnection, or could lend a ‘circle of life’ flavor that may aid you in your quest. Use your insights and your energy to help others today. This is not an ideal aspect for being self-serving; your integrity and compassion can be put to humanitarian (or simply neighborly) use much more effectively. The Moon entering Taurus offers grounding in emotions and the senses, and an orientation on values.
