Written in the Planets
Aspects by Mars today highlight the necessity of honesty and integrity. Possibly the most important thing in life is being true to one’s principles, however frowned upon by others. The urge to secure social approval is a powerful pull with biological roots. Yet the ability to overcome that urge is your privilege as a thinking, conscious human being. Don’t be afraid to wield it.
