If Your Birthday is Aug. 29
(The Day of Structured Action) | Virgo Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
You may be driven or even obsessed by an idea. This may relate to a personal discovery, a business plan, an invention or a creative project. Still, no matter how much energy you invest in that seemingly external thing, you will be guided again and again into the realm of your inner being. Don’t be afraid to go there: self-knowledge is the freedom of who you are.
Written in the Planets
Hanging on to hurts from the past and how they came to be — especially in relationships — is rarely an efficient or effective path to healing. But what if you feel like it’s impossible to heal your fixation on what happened? Or what if you feel that moving forward, getting your needs met or getting ‘justice’ can only happen with the help of another person or through some form of relationship? The asteroid Juno in a square to Psyche and Makemake in Libra seems to pose these questions and the tension that goes with them. Retrograde Mercury in Virgo, making a slow trine to Juno, suggests there’s a difference between looking within and fixating on the past. The difference being: eventually you integrate what you’ve discovered and use it to look, think and move forward again.
