If Your Birthday is Aug. 8
(The Day of the Roleplayers) | Leo Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Financial matters will take on a new level of spiritual significance. You might say that money is the meaning of life, but not in the way that most people think. Your resources are a vehicle for your most sincere intentions, and you must become a master of them. Doing the right thing is more important than personal gain, though both are possible at once.
Written in the Planets
Plan deliberately. That is, go step-by-step, and with a firm grasp on what already exists in some concrete way, and what is currently physically possible because of that. Listen to the wisdom of your body — such as your energy level when you think of certain tasks; any weird sensations when you encounter something you’re not 100% on board with; physical signs of stress or excitement. Mercury in Virgo is slow and powerful, preparing to station retrograde on Friday. Today it makes a trine to Pallas in Taurus. The more tangible your sources of wisdom and strategy, the more stability you create for your thought process as you move forward from yesterday’s lunar eclipse.
“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.”
