“Today on some of the big issues, moral issues, (it) seems like we been so silent. Somehow we need to find a way to reclaim our position as people of faith. We don’t need to sort of give up, or give out or in, or get lost in a sea of despair, become discouraged; we just need to get out there. When I was growing up, my mother and father and grandparents used to tell us, ‘Don’t get in trouble. Don’t get in the way.’ But during the ’60s, the religious community got in trouble. We got in the way. And it’s time again for the religious community to get in the way. To get in trouble. Good trouble, necessary trouble.”
— John Lewis

If Your Birthday is Feb. 21
(The Day of Intimacy) | Pisces Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Stay highly observant — both of your thought processes and of your relationships — and you’ll likely enhance your powers of judgment considerably. In this time between eclipses, the difference between setting beneficial patterns versus falling into less helpful tendencies could partly depend on a series of simple, everyday decisions. You have reason to be optimistic at this time. Combine your faith and intuition with observable facts (including awareness of what you don’t know), and you’ll position yourself well.
Written in the Planets
Today could present an opportunity to make supportive contact between your deeper emotional realm and your physical reality. Specifically, this could happen in a way that opens a door for you to pass from one phase of awareness to another; kind of like walking over a threshold from one room to another. The aspect in play is a sextile between the Pisces Sun and an unnamed object in Taurus known as 1992 QB1. The thing about sextiles is that although the energy has a flowing quality, it can easily lay dormant if you do not consciously activate it. Listen to how you feel, emotionally and physically, and you’ll know what you need to do to move your awareness and creativity to the next level.
