If Your Birthday is Feb. 5
(The Day of Quiet Eloquence) | Aquarius Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
You know what you want to express, and it’s important enough to you that advice to choose your words carefully is unnecessary. You’re aware that how your message is conveyed might be pivotal to its success, though it’s likely that your audience will be receptive.
Written in the Planets
Mars squaring Hylonome indicates possible agitation rising to the surface. Try to remain calm and diplomatic; and if someone is provoking you past bearing, ideally you’d want to exit the arena if you can. Any victory in a war of words may come at the expense of emotional wellbeing. Be alert to your state of mind, to lessen the chance of being caught off-guard in your reactions. A little self-care could go a long way today.
