If Your Birthday is April 16
(The Day of Cosmic Comedy) | Aries Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Recent events might have you wanting to say, “Beam me up, Scotty!” Today’s astrology, however, suggests a slight edit to that phrase: “Beam me in.” As in, the Sun is making a most harmonious aspect to the very center of our Milky Way galaxy. See if you can tune into the cosmic message. Whether you think you can or not, there’s an excellent chance you may channel some expansive energy the more aware you can be of humanity’s gifts.
Written in the Planets
With Venus in direct motion as of yesterday, today it makes exact contact with Chiron in Pisces (the third of the whole retrograde process). Whether you’ve been blissing out or struggling with a crisis, emotional healing of one form or another (including sexual healing) looks like the order of the day. You truly do have the capability to heal whatever is hurting or is demanding your attention. Ask for as much help as you need, take notes (Chiron rewards documentation) and consider bathing yourself in music or art along the way.
