If Your Birthday is Aug. 3
(The Day of the Dangerous Quest) | Leo Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
It is said that faith can move mountains, and you can discover that in the coming year of your life. Faith is not hope. It’s not ‘aspirational’. Rather, it’s about a deep acceptance of your relationship to existence. Then there’s the forgiveness aspect, which is the true key to opening up one’s spiritual connection. Yet you can only find out through direct experiments.
Written in the Planets
The movements of Uranus and the Moon today suggest that lasting alterations generally happen in stages. Often, to change a habit or routine completely requires planning, perseverance and determination. Even the most inspired of epiphanies needs some groundwork in order to manifest the wonderful idea. If you have a vision for something new in your life, by all means have faith in it; just be prepared to back it up with operational details.
“Ah Eric — just listened to your reading. I was moved to tears by your closing words. Your passion, deep care and love always shine through; and you have the gift of all great teachers, of making one feel that one is being personally addressed, respected and taken care of.”
— Liz Glanville
