If Your Birthday is Jan. 13
(The Day of Upward Mobility) | Capricorn Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Everyone knows that creation and destruction are part of the same cycle. Yet it’s easy to get freaked out or downright frightened by the ‘destruction’ part. What if you think of it more like ‘surrender’ rather than ‘destruction’ — as in, like some kind of tantric sex style of surrender? Some belief or facet of life that’s gotten a little rigid or dogmatic is showing you where to allow this. If you can feel some long-disregarded part of yourself coming through the conduit that opening up, you’ll know you’re on the right track.
Written in the Planets
Who do you believe? There’s a lot of bluster in the media, from all sides of every issue. Do verifiable historical and scientific facts mean anything anymore? Will what you believed yesterday mean anything next week? Mars is conjunct Borasisi in Pisces today. This is a very emotional position for Mars; it’s hard for the planet of action to get any solid traction here. And Borasisi often highlights the question of why you believe what you believe; belief is often more about emotions than it is about facts. Yet Mars and Borasisi are square a little-used object in Sagittarius: Varda, named for Tolkien’s fictional goddess of light. If you’re struggling to get a foothold today, check yourself against something like the Golden Rule. It might not tell you which news reports can be trusted; but it could help you get your bearings, in terms of whether your beliefs are guiding you toward ethical behavior. At which point, you have a choice.
