(The Day of Adopted Security) | Taurus Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
You may be in for some interesting dialogue with your deeper self. Most of us have a core principle or set of guidelines that we hold to no matter what. With a landscape around you that is continually shifting, you might feel the need to review at least a part of this; alternatively, you could bring some of your philosophy further into the open. You don’t necessarily need to verbalize your beliefs: living true to them is enough.

The line where feeling meets fact is probably not agreed upon by many at a time. Some suggest we should treat anything not strictly evidence-based with deep suspicion. A certain amount of skepticism is healthy. Yet there is more to instincts and feelings than meets the eye, especially in day-to-day existence. You could discover something, during the truth-revealing process that is Mercury retrograde, that might well be said to vindicate a hunch of yours.
