If Your Birthday is April 17
(The Day of Serious Purpose) | Aries Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
You seem to have a real grip on the general thrust of your life, and a mature understanding of what’s important. You recognize the worth of clarity and honesty in communications. All this means you can be an excellent example for others to follow if they wish to live and act with integrity. Keep on being true to yourself; and remember to have a little fun from time to time — there are many ways you can relax without relaxing the really fundamental standards.
Written in the Planets
Astrology understands that each of us contains some of each gender. Juno squaring Jupiter today may serve as a reminder to check in with that and ensure everything is working in concert. If there is disagreement, try to find out where and why. There might be a real question or dilemma to which you need to seek the answer. There could also be a part of you that is not getting a fair hearing. If you suspect that, the thing to look for is a feeling of confinement. Let all of you speak, and allow yourself freedom in your mind from shame and guilt.
