If Your Birthday is Jan. 25
(The Day of Destiny) | Aquarius Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Aquarians are famous for tending to take an intellectual approach to emotions and sex. Today’s astrology, however, suggests a way you can avoid getting stuck in the head-trip on your way to connecting with some erotic energy in your local environment: dance. Certainly, if you’re self-conscious, you can dance solo behind closed doors. But for maximum access to your body’s heat-generating abilities, get your groove on in public or with a small group of friends.
Written in the Planets
Do recent events like the Women’s March have you feeling something like “an orgasmic fusion with the cosmos”? That’s one way that Barbara Hand Clow describes conjunctions between Venus and Chiron. She also suggests that this aspect indicates “relationships which bring in the spiritual dimension,” and a “strong desire to mix sex and religion.” Yet it’s also possible that today’s conjunction between Venus and Chiron in Pisces is highlighting a strong sense of injury or lack of trust that’s related to being female (or related to your inner feminine side). If that’s the case for you, know that it is being brought to the surface for the purpose of deeper understanding and healing. It’s okay to seek help or support in that if needed.
