If Your Birthday is April 15
(The Day of Human Definition) | Aries Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Your body remembers what it wants. At the same time, we live in a society that dishes out insults to our physical and sexual health, safety and confidence on a regular basis. It’s important to honor the memories of what your body has lived through. Yet it’s equally important to feel your desire fully, and to let all five senses (to the extent that you can engage them) inform your experience in the present. You’re in an introspective moment; there are ways to be persistent in pursuit of what you want without being stubborn, and while inviting healing along the way.
Written in the Planets
Today Venus stations direct in Pisces, concluding six weeks of retrograde motion. For some, much of Venus retro felt a lot like a Mercury retrograde. Eric often says that when Mercury stations direct, it can be marked by “the truth coming out,” or some missing bit of information finally appearing. With emotionally rich Venus in sensitive Pisces, see if you notice some element of “emotional truth” coming out. It might be related to sexuality or creativity; it could be related to some long-buried hurt that’s ready to be brought to light. Maybe it’s something altogether softer, or something more urgent. Whatever it is that you hear whispering to you today, remember that Chiron tends to reward documentation. Write it down or make some art about it, and see what develops.
