“My greatest pleasure was the enjoyment of a serene sky amidst these verdant woods: yet I loved all the changes of Nature; and rain, and storm, and the beautiful clouds of heaven brought their delights with them. When rocked by the waves of the lake my spirits rose in triumph as a horseman feels with pride the motions of his high fed steed.”
— Mary Shelley (‘Matilda’)

If Your Birthday is Aug. 30
(The Day of the Rock) | Virgo Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Stay close to the edge of personal discovery. Never let yourself think that you know everything about yourself, or your past, or your family history. If you keep an open mind, you’ll have one revelation after the next. This may set you in a position of family leadership, since you would be the one driven by a questing spirit for truth. Let nothing deter you.
Written in the Planets
With Mars in Leo making a trine to Pholus in Sagittarius today, a small expenditure of energy or effort has the potential to reach far with its effects. So it’s key to bring compassion to whatever you do. That is, lead from the heart — which may feel a little different from letting your beliefs lead the way. With Chiron in aspect to both Mars and Pholus, note that integrating what you learn and what you heal along the way could very well mean that you must keep incrementally adjusting what ‘leading from the heart’ looks like, moment to moment. Don’t let that need for adjustment stand in your way, but do let it influence you little by little.
