If Your Birthday is Jan. 30
(The Day of Take Charge) | Aquarius Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
You have more strength than you realize. Much of it may be dormant until summoned, but it’s there notwithstanding. Don’t be afraid to face head on whatever challenges this year might hold, or to take your development to the next level. You are a survivor and you have guts of steel.
Written in the Planets
Today will involve a variety of aspects from inner planets to centaurs. This suggests a general theme of alchemical transmutation: taking past struggles and difficulties and making them into something new and better. Sometimes we allow ourselves to become fixated on particular injuries. When that happens, we temporarily cease to evolve and to remain open. Yet as the saying goes, we each have the divine spark within. By moving forward we can honor that part of ourselves, and be the hero we were always meant to be.
