If Your Birthday is Aug. 27
(The Day of Social Ideals) | Virgo Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Whatever may be your direction of travel in the world, your real journey is to be headed inward. This thing called “inner awareness” has become increasingly elusive in the digital age, yet it’s currently the purpose of your life. You have many interesting things brewing, but at the moment, none of them is as interesting as who you’re discovering you are.
Written in the Planets
Jupiter and Saturn might be thought of as the two planets in astrology that are mainly associated with leadership or authority. Today they meet in a sextile, which has been long in the making. There are likely several possible ways you can put this harmonious and productive aspect to use: one might be taking the opportunity to move a specific project forward; another could be bringing your expertise, power or privilege to bear on a social justice issue that you care about. Since Mercury is retrograde, however, one caution: choose your words with care, and take particular pains to speak truthfully.
Leo Eclipse and Beyond
On Aug. 21, a total solar eclipse in Leo signaled the second stage of whatever life-shifting process you’re engaged with.
This is a unique year for you, Leo. In addition to the current eclipses (and the double New Moons in your sign), your birthday reading will cover such astrological heavyweights as Chiron finishing up its journey through your 8th house; ever-surprising Uranus; and Saturn leaving your fellow fire sign, Sagittarius — plus more.
Are you navigating changes in your relationships or family paradigm? Do you find yourself at a career crossroads? Are you seeking clarity, encouragement and new perspectives on your creativity, self-esteem, sexuality or healing process? You’ll find ideas and reassurance in this reading.
"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
