If Your Birthday is April 30
(The Day of Dutiful Overload) | Taurus Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Strive to keep yourself in balance; you will — and you’ll reap the benefits. Remember that there are many sides to every story, and if you feel an urge to second-guess your own desires, settle down and listen to what your heart is telling you. Rather than debate with yourself, feel inside for who and what you’re drawn to.
Written in the Planets
Today’s iteration of the Saturn-Chiron square, among other aspects, may relate to how we view authority and the people on whom we bestow it. We are all capable of free thinking; yet many people choose to delegate part of their moral prerogative to someone else. Whether or not you feel attuned to a particular set of beliefs, being true to yourself means retaining independence when it matters. Cherish yours, and if necessary bolster it.
