“How can anyone expect to be understood unless he presents his thoughts with complete honesty? This situation is unfair because it asks too much of the world. In effect, we say, ‘I don’t dare show you what I am because I don’t trust you for a minute but please love me anyway because I so need you to. And, of course, if you don’t love me anyway, you’re a dirty dog, just as I suspected, so I was right in the first place.’ Yet, every time God’s children have thrown away fear in pursuit of honesty — trying to communicate themselves, understood or not, miracles have happened.”
— Duke Ellington

If Your Birthday is April 29
(The Day of the Heavy Image) | Taurus Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
If you’re aspiring to a goal of some kind and you reach a seeming limit, don’t let that stop you. You must be persistent, which is different from stubbornness. Be content with a little effort every day; and let any success, no matter how small, embolden you to keep going. Take responsibility for your actions, and let integrity be your middle name.
Written in the Planets
Remember that there are many ways to nourish yourself. For example: literally, with food; through physical activity; mentally, through the ideas you focus on and the conversations you have; emotionally, by giving your feelings room and time to be processed; spiritually, by cultivating your inner space, energetic presence and connection to All That Is. Sometimes, though, we human beings need to be reminded to focus on one of these forms above the others. Today, Ceres enters Gemini and makes some interesting aspects to minor bodies, with a clear focus on the mental sphere. Honor any difficulties or bad habits you’ve had in this realm — they’re just part of your growth process. Then get to work addressing them, using what you’ve learned in the past. Or, if you’ve been super mentally oriented lately, try redirecting your focus toward good food and some quiet meditation or exercise, as your body and spirit need. Remember that this is an act of caring above all else; ideally it will leave you feeling better than you did before — mind, body and soul.
