If Your Birthday is July 20
(The Day of Ups and Downs) | Cancer Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
If you make healing your top priority, many other facets of your life will come into focus. Healing what, exactly? Anything that has lingered around unresolved; any matter that needs attention; and in particular, how you relate to your spiritual and emotional needs. You are being called to go deeper into your self-understanding, and to be scrupulously honest with yourself.
Written in the Planets
There’s a busy sky today, including Mars being the first of a line of planets to enter Leo. Things may seem rather turbulent, though this setup could be particularly useful for creative projects, or simply for fun and adventure. Either way, try to find constructive outlets for your energy; and be on the watch for anything that looks like an opportunity, with a view to taking it up if possible.
“Ah Eric — just listened to your reading. I was moved to tears by your closing words. Your passion, deep care and love always shine through; and you have the gift of all great teachers, of making one feel that one is being personally addressed, respected and taken care of.”
— Liz Glanville
