If Your Birthday is May 10
(The Day of Lone Movers) | Taurus Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
You must treat every door like it’s potentially open. Walk up to it and turn the knob and see. If it’s locked, knock a few times. Be the one who takes the initiative, rather than waiting to be invited or waiting for the world to come to you. Present yourself in your best possible light; though make sure you’re willing to do the work to deliver what you promise.
Written in the Planets
Today’s big astrological event is the Scorpio Full Moon. On the most basic level, this looks like a confrontation with something to do with physical pleasure, sexual secrets and the place where body-knowledge meets emotional intelligence. You can read a little more about it in Monday’s Astrology Diary, but consider starting your day with this question: If you knew that you could make progress in evolving some element of a sexual/physical/intimate relationship today just by starting a conversation about it, would you? No matter how daring it feels? Note that a few hours before the Moon is exactly full, Mercury (now in direct motion) makes its last of three exact conjunctions to Uranus in Aries. The original idea that prompts an unexpected impulse to speak your truth could open the way for some surprising developments. Looks like this Full Moon will be shining in all kinds of intriguing nooks and crannies. Follow the light.
