“Happiness in this world, when it comes, comes incidentally. Make it the object of pursuit, and it leads us a wild-goose chase, and is never attained. Follow some other object, and very possibly we may find that we have caught happiness without dreaming of it.”
— Nathaniel Hawthorne

If Your Birthday is July 4
(The Day of the Group Representative) | Cancer Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
You must look to the future of your relationships, not backwards at the past. The temptation will always be there, though by now you know that the Sun rises in the east and sets in the west. Your life is about beginnings, and if you want some of those, draw any incomplete endings to a sincere close, and welcome new experiences and new people into your life.
Written in the Planets
So often people think of ‘surrender’ as being synonymous with ‘giving up’ or ‘defeat’. Yet surrendering to love is the act that lets you receive love (and share it). Similarly, surrendering to serving some higher cause — or to the soul’s calling — is generally what allows a person to do their most fulfilling work. If you think about it, this is really quite a subversive concept in our ultra-competitive Western capitalist society. Vesta, which is approaching a conjunction to the lunar North Node in Leo, makes a trine to Eris in Aries today. How might serving love be a subversive act in your life?
Astrology can help you. In the right hands, astrology can provide you with a new perspective on your life. My readings are designed to help you consider all of your possibilities, your greatest potential, and to help you see your problems in a new light. I’m about to record the Cancer reading for you. If you order now, you’ll get the best pre-order price of $33. Shortly before publication, it’ll be $44 and then the final price will be $55. These readings condense 22 years of my counseling experience, nonstop reflection on the human condition and lots of excellent astrology. They are in plain talk, easy to follow, and paced gently. They are some of my best work; these readings are an invention. And you can have all the benefits. I plan to do this reading very soon — so get on board before the next two price increases. Here’s how to pre-order. If you’re seeking a private consultation, here’s that link.
