If Your Birthday is Jan. 24
(The Day of the Aloof Icon) | Aquarius Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Plenty of ideas about ‘the Divine Feminine’, feminism in general and women in religion have been co-opted by historically entrenched institutions. Those ideas are held in place by a curious tension many people choose (and are taught) to ignore. These ideas are ripe for revolution; today, you may feel the impulse to help break the Divine Feminine free in a way that feels true to you. Remember that liberation and integration of this sort begins within, and then ripples outward.

What do you do when you’re feeling hurt or overwhelmed, and ‘woo-woo’ messages about things like universal love just don’t resonate (or worse, make you angry)? Therein lies a challenge, illustrated by Mars in Pisces square the Galactic Core (GC) in Sagittarius. Yet astrology never presents a problem without also offering a solution. In this case, help comes in the form of two major goddess-asteroids also contacting the GC: Ceres in Aries and Juno in Sagittarius. Ceres seems to point to the first step: when you begin with what nourishes you, you’re sending that universal love to yourself. Juno is indicating that the most important personal needs are shared by all humanity; when you address emotional needs on the micro level of relationships, it’s a hologram of healing on the macro level. Juno and Mars don’t need to compete for attention when you get that connection. Got it?
