If Your Birthday is Dec. 5
(The Day of Confidence) | Sagittarius Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Most people want to leave the past behind, which is how they wind up living there permanently. For you, important matters related to your family history will surface this year, and you can make actual progress resolving them. Learn as much as possible going back three generations. Take the time, and be a sleuth. You will be amazed what you learn.
Written in the Planets
You may find yourself revising a plan you’ve been developing, regarding establishing your identity in some way. Longstanding (and perhaps unarticulated) emotional needs in a relationship seem to be the factor pushing you to make some adjustments. With retrograde asteroid Pallas in Aries square asteroid Juno in Capricorn today, this process of review and revise is in great harmony with retrograde Mercury. Think of it less as making a concession, and more like getting all your ducks in a row. If you do, you’ll be in a much better position for strategic forward motion once Pallas and Mercury both turn around later this month. Note also the conjunction between the Sagittarius Sun and the deep-space feature called the Great Attractor. Be aware that how you express yourself today could have effects you’ll never see, so be sure to stay aligned with your ethics and sense of purpose — even if it seems to polarize those around you.
