“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost.”
— Martha Graham
What is the Great Attractor? This article by Eric from December 2008, near Planet Waves’ 10th anniversary, breaks it down. As he writes: “We know that it broadcasts across every spectrum except the visible ones. Its gravity is so powerful that it’s drawing toward it a million galaxies, including our own, at the rate of about 24 million miles a day.”

If Your Birthday is May 11
(The Day of the Frequent Flyer) | Taurus Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
As a thinking adult, you have the freedom to sculpt your own life. Some aspects of society in particular try to impose strict narratives: we often find that our circumstances, or our choices, are expected to result in rigidly specific consequences, and that breaking the mould is to warp the social fabric. Ignore this concept. You’ll feel better for it.
Written in the Planets
Aspects by Mars suggest an exaggerated tendency to be polarized or provoked by certain issues. It might be worth taking note of any strong feelings that spring up, especially anger, especially if it seems overpowering. Most situations are more complex than two fixed, opposing positions can really express. One thing you can do is use the energy to root out the details and the facts. Try to discover the source of the emotional trigger. Go by the idea that no true information is worthless, and that any learning is helpful somewhere.
