“Kindness is an inner desire that makes us want to do good things even if we do not get anything in return. It is the joy of our life to do them. When we do good things from this inner desire, there is kindness in everything we think, say, want and do.
— Emanuel Swedenborg
Inscribed inside the Statue of Liberty Enlightening the World
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

If Your Birthday is Jan. 29
(The Day of the Compassionate Combatant) | Aquarius Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
If you could do with a boost to your self-confidence, one possible way to manage that could be through fulfilling an ambition or dream. This might require more planning and effort than our fantasies tend to allow for, but the feeling of achievement is likely to be worth it.

Mercury’s conjunction with Pluto may represent the conclusion of a process begun around Dec. 19 when Mercury stationed retrograde. Pay special attention if any patterns or issues you noticed around that time crop up again: this is your chance to resolve matters to your satisfaction.
