If Your Birthday is July 29
(The Day of Cultural Assessment) | Leo Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
As the year progresses, you will come into your own. This may not happen today or tomorrow, though all the signs are there. Don’t be daunted by the insecurities of others. You must use any friction as a source of power. If you find yourself in a conflict, use it as a way to map out where people are coming from, and get the upper hand.
Written in the Planets
As Venus nears its square to Chiron (exact Sunday), it occupies a particularly potent, and possibly volatile, degree: 28+ Gemini. You might want to notice whether any of your emotions or thoughts — or your reactions to what you’re being asked to ‘receive’ — are threatening to outpace your core values. The level of personality has a way of buffeting us when we stay at a surface level; if you’re feeling stress, Chiron in Pisces seems to suggest that diving to deeper water might take you beneath the layer where the wind whips up the waves. If it feels more like immersion into a new level of understanding rather than evasion, you know you’re on the right track.
“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

— Barbara Peaslee, on a previous Leo reading
