“It is said that truthfulness alone constitutes the spiritual discipline of the Kaliyuga. If a man clings tenaciously to truth he ultimately realizes God. Without this regard for truth, one gradually loses everything.”

If Your Birthday is Feb. 18
(The Day of the Complete Picture) | Birthday Readings: Aquarius | Pisces | Others
Do you believe you can dance around your karma, rather than deal with it straight on? Are you dancing around the idea that you might even have any? In about a week, there will be a partial solar eclipse that might emphasize something you’re ready to release, heal and move on from. Why not get the process started now? It’s okay to improvise your metaphorical dance steps; you may find a better pattern emerges as you go along.
Written in the Planets
Today the Sun enters Pisces. A few hours later, the Moon enters Sagittarius for the last quarter Moon. This signals the midpoint between last week’s penumbral lunar eclipse and Leo Full Moon, and the Feb. 26 Pisces New Moon and partial solar eclipse. Between now and the solar eclipse, you’re being asked to give up something that does not work. It’s amazing how reluctant we can be to give something up even when we know it’s not working for us. Human beings take great comfort in the familiar, often to our own detriment. Yet you may be able to make this process less of a resistance-trigger for yourself. Sagittarius Moons are known for a love of freedom; last quarter Moons are known to be helpful in moving things toward completion. Tapping into one or both of those energies consciously — really let yourself imagine the ease you might feel — could grease the wheels a little.
