If Your Birthday is July 13
(The Day of Taken Opportunity) | Cancer Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
To be effective, spirituality must have a practical approach. It has to be about more than an ideal. That said, you are feeling a calling to go beyond your current beliefs, and to understand your connection to the greater whole. To do that, you will need to forget many things you were taught in the past, and take a more creative approach. Travel will open many doors.
Written in the Planets
Today’s skies are relatively uneventful, suggesting you have an opportunity to digest the more potent astrology of recent days, and to take a little space to breathe and heal. The Sun and Moon are both in water signs, aiding this process. Give yourself room to acknowledge — and then release — any less-than-elevating emotions you may have encountered during the Full Moon, such as petulance or jealousy. These are a normal part of the human condition; yet Pluto has shaken something loose, enabling you to pursue a different course.
I’ve now completed your Cancer reading, which is infused with the energy of the Full Moon conjunct Pluto. I describe this in detail, taking it back to the beginning of Pluto in Capricorn. As the reading developed organically, it built up an intensity I was not expecting, ultimately describing the relationship between you and the very wide world that surrounds you.
The reading consists of two, 35-minute downloadable sessions. They can also be played on any device, or added to iTunes.
Thank you for trusting me as your astrologer.
