If Your Birthday is Feb. 4
(The Day of the Curveballer) | Aquarius Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
If you’ve been staying up-to-date with your emotional hygiene and healing process, chances are you’ll have the enthusiasm and energy to really get going on your priority goals and projects today. But what if you’ve been avoiding your emotions? Today could feel a little touchier and reactive. The benefit of this is that once tensions are brought into the open, it’s easier to see your share of the root cause and then get to work addressing it. In either scenario, aiming for a conscious balance between your will and emotions will serve you well — now and ongoing.
Written in the Planets
The first quarter Moon last night into this morning is urging you to get a move on with something. With the Sun in Aquarius and the Moon in Taurus, themes you might consider include humanitarian or group work, innovations, technology, your values, physical and emotional health, and your material surroundings (as well as anything that’s been stuck and needs a nudge). Do you recognize any of those concepts in a project, goal or personal situation? Tonight into Sunday the asteroid Ceres enters Taurus. There are few clearer metaphors for the very real connection between what you eat, how your body feels and your emotional state. Are you listening to the messages? And can you respond with healthy self-care choices in these challenging times?
