“I do indeed believe that there is a certain contrast between, say, people in scientific professions and people working in the arts. Often there is even mutual suspicion and irritation, and in some cases one group greatly undervalues the other. Fortunately there is no one who actually has only feeling or only thinking properties. They intermingle like the colors of the rainbow and cannot be sharply divided.”
— M. C. Escher

If Your Birthday is June 17
(The Day of Artful Force) | Gemini Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Take a bold approach to resolving family matters and you will set yourself free for other priorities. You may need to dive into sensitive territory more than you would prefer, though if you take the lead rather than wait for others, you will build your confidence. You may also outgrow any tendency to avoid important issues, or to put up with people who do so.
Written in the Planets
There is so much to think about and to do; always something new on which to focus your awareness. Yet what about that thing called ‘purpose’? Do you have a sense of what really matters on a soul level — even if it feels too big to really wrap your mind around, or feels separate from you? Today the Gemini Sun opposes the Galactic Core in Sagittarius. It’s possible that you might find yourself in a position to negotiate between the typical everyday-level preoccupations and something quite ineffable. Though it might prove challenging to articulate it, attempting to do so could yield insights.
