If Your Birthday is April 22
(The Day of Established Presence) | Taurus Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
They say sharing is caring. And today, when you share yourself through self-expression, it will be clear to those you’re sharing with just how devoted and caring you are. This includes when you share how much you are hurting, or when you share the steps you are taking to heal an emotional issue and to take care of yourself. You’d be surprised how much strength people can take from witnessing your process, and the inner strength you display in doing so. If you can express yourself creatively — such as through art, music, writing or theater — all the better.
Written in the Planets
It is possible that what you write today could have significant emotional impact. Indeed, it might seem to equalize a field that might otherwise be difficult to be heard amongst. Retrograde Mercury in Aries today squares Varuna in Cancer. Mercury’s inward-looking or backward-looking influence could mean that the impact your words have is primarily on yourself, or on some facet of yourself from the past that you are just now coming to understand. Whichever direction your words find their mark, note that the point Cupido in Sagittarius is making a trine to Mercury. Speak with love — straight from the heart, no matter what you say — and the universe will likely offer support.
