If Your Birthday is Jan. 20
(The Day of the Freewheeler) | Aquarius Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Sometimes it is hubris to see what one has created and assume it will last forever. Other times, it is hubris to assume that things must change to reflect oneself. How can you solve the puzzle? One way is to be sure that you are looking beneath the surface-level glamour of self-image. Image is not all that matters in life (if, indeed, it matters much at all). You need not worry that your deeper emotions are ‘monstrous’. Use them deliberately to push yourself toward growth and transformation, and you can stay humble while making great strides.

There’s a pair of interesting aspects involving the signs Capricorn and Pisces today; together, they seem to suggest that anyone looking to subvert the dominant paradigm has some energy they can tap into. First up is Venus in Pisces sextile Pluto in Capricorn. On one level, this speaks of intense sexuality and deep, passionate emotions. If you try to get under the surface of something today, you’ll likely succeed. You could get real (and really hot) with a lover under the covers. Or, you could go deep with friends to evolve something like your worldview, or how you interact with ‘the establishment’. We also have Mercury in Capricorn sextile Pallas in Pisces. Can you communicate your most idealistic, egalitarian strategies in focused, concrete detail? More simply, are you broadcasting the message of ‘the love warrior’?

Exactly what I was hoping to convey, Linda Rock! I suspect we’ll need to help remind each other on a regular basis.
