On Monday, December 19th, a waning crescent Moon conjoined with Haumea on the line between the 1st House of Self and 2nd House of Security under Libra and Scorpio, respectively. As the shrinking Moon encourages us to let go of what is no longer serving us, Haumea pushes us to trust our instinct—they’re stronger than we often give them credit for.
What might this intuition reveal for your sign today?
Certain environments promote rest, and others promote productivity. When your body and mind are calling you to recharge, it’s vital to switch settings accordingly. Otherwise, you’re just torturing yourself with temptation. Take some time away from work, Aries.
When you start to become stuck in your past, you’re liable to start reacting to things that aren’t really happening. Be careful not to let your fears project themselves onto the present. Work on staying in the moment.
If nothing seems to be going right, then why not try going left? As disappointing as these setbacks might be, it presents an invaluable opportunity to absorb new ideas, perspectives, and techniques. There is a way to use this to your advantage.
Every single external experience stems from your internal state of being. Thus, it’s critical that you find time to maintain (or improve, if necessary) your mental and emotional wellness. Don’t underestimate the importance of this exercise.
No one is expecting you to forgo your needs and dreams, so why are you volunteering to do so? Be careful not to let your pride convince you to try showing off. There’s no point in martyring yourself for show, Leo.
While you might think self-sacrifice is required to achieve your goals, there’s a good chance it’s having the opposite effect. You must tend to your needs in order to tend to others, plain and simple. There’s no changing this fact, Virgo.
You know what you like and don’t like better than anyone, Libra. Don’t let others convince you that they are more acquainted with who you are as a person than you. Stand firm in your values and beliefs.
Despite your keen ability to read others, you struggle to reach these same conclusions about yourself. Indeed, it can be nearly impossible to see the forest through the trees. Try viewing this situation objectively instead of subjectively.
Wrapping your identity up into productivity and output is a recipe for disappointment. You aren’t a robot, Sag. Stop treating yourself like you are one and then shaming yourself when you don’t live up to the expectations.
There is no limit to the things that your loved ones can teach you, Cap. But you have to pay attention to the lessons being offered. Don’t be so quick to write off others’ opinions as less accurate than yours.
The stars are lining up in your favor, Aquarius. Keep your mind, heart, and eyes open for what’s to come. Entertain new ideas even if they wouldn’t be your first pick. You might be surprised by what you find.
You are an incredibly sensitive person, which means even minor conflict can completely derail your day. That’s why it’s so important to face these issues head-on to resolve them quickly as opposed to pretending to ignore them.
