“There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved.”
— Charles Darwin

If Your Birthday is Feb. 12
(The Day of the Unifier) | Aquarius Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Aquarius is not one to lack the capacity for critical or independent thinking. Yet it may help you now to cultivate or sharpen this ability. Study every report with a skeptical eye. This isn’t the same as debunking whatever you hear without good reason; it’s about committing to yourself that you will draw your own conclusions.
Written in the Planets
Pallas squaring the Great Attractor looks like a comment on the limits of diplomacy. Civility and compromise are often useful in day-to-day life; yet there is also a point at which we must declare our position outright, at which it’s more important to be honest than amiable. Understand where that is for you and be clear on when you might need to raise your head above the parapet.
