“Until that time I had always felt like a weirdo, the only person who felt out of step with the world around her. I knew we needed a women’s movement. This is what I had been waiting for.”
— Dolores Alexander

If Your Birthday is Aug. 10
(The Day of the Velvet Voice) | Leo Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Don’t fall for the trap that others are standing in the way of your dreams. They are not, as long as you don’t give them that role. You will build the life you want by applying your imagination, mixed with discipline and a touch of flexibility. It’s time for you to design the life you want, so don’t let your current attachments or anxieties get in the way.
Written in the Planets
Given the current state of the world, it wouldn’t be at all surprising if you’re feeling a little nervous. However, the state of the sky today is much more pleasant, including Mercury sextile Venus and the Sun sextile Jupiter, among other aspects. All this points to a possible way to channel your fears into something constructive. As our friend Amanda Moreno recently pointed out, “Prayers for peace, calm, level headedness, objectivity…or making a point of hugging a friend, wishing a stranger kindness and health, planting a damn tree or basil plant…your efforts ripple out.” Send ripples of love today.
“I have just listened to your Part 1 and Part 2 readings and I am amazed at how accurate it has been. Like you have a telescope watching me shed a skin and transform into a totally changed person in the last 10 years.”
— Pauline Jones
The reverberations from these two eclipses will keep rippling out and developing through the next six to twelve months — and Eric’s 2017-18 Leo Birthday Reading is designed to guide you through it all.
“The past few years have been very difficult on many levels and it has been the readings I get through you that keep me going. Always, absolutely right on, every one of them.”
