“When people come to you for help, do not turn them off with pious words, saying, ‘have faith and take your troubles to God.’ Act instead as though there were no God, as though there were only one person in the world who could help — only yourself.”
— Martin Buber

If Your Birthday is Feb. 8
(The Day of Precognition) | Aquarius Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Your consciousness is especially fertile right now. And while you may be tempted to hold tight to an established thought, consider taking a moment to weigh one or more other sides to the story. It looks like that will be easier for you today than it often can be. Sometimes the best ideas or richest forms of awareness emerge from seeming chaos. Go with that flow.
Written in the Planets
When you think about your relationships and your part in them, do they seem governed by (or based on) emotions more than on rational thought? That makes sense: love is an emotion, and the people we fall in love with (or have ‘chemistry’ with) often seem to defy prediction. Yet you can also look at your relationships as a reflection of your deepest values, put into action or mirrored back to you. Today Venus in Aries opposes the objects Logos and Makemake in Libra. The suggestion here is that there’s a certain logic to how things came to be in your most intimate partnerships. If you’re having trouble seeing it, that might signal a need to look a little deeper within yourself. The people you’re involved with present information, but not the answers.
