“Life is about choices, and the grace or lack thereof with which you execute them is a make-or-break moment in anyone’s life. So in terms of an example of how a woman in power could function, I’m very proud of what I put out there.”
— Gina Torres

If Your Birthday is April 25
(The Day of Physical Substance) | Taurus Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Have you ever noticed that even when your mind feels confused, your body knows what’s up? The thing is, Western society has done a great job of separating the two, especially now that we live so much of our lives via digital technology. If today you become aware of how much influence a difficult-to-heal psychological hurt has had on your bodily wellbeing, take heart. Your physical senses likely hold clues as to how to begin addressing it.
Written in the Planets
Chaos was the supreme Greek creation deity — the forebear of the primary gods including Gaia (Earth) and Eros (the love that softens hearts; also the creative/sexual life-force). It’s possible for the object Chaos to indicate in astrology the kind of crazy making we all dread; but most often it represents an access point to the fertile void. Today, Chaos and the asteroid Eros make a conjunction in Gemini. It’s a fascinating image, and calls to mind primordial single-cell organisms splitting themselves or fertilizing themselves to bring forth new life, and a new order. Or maybe it describes how there’s more than one way to love yourself, and that when you do, you essentially birth a new you that never existed before. Play around with all the possibilities.
