“One day work is hard, and another day it is easy; but if I had waited for inspiration I am afraid I should have done nothing. The miner does not sit at the top of the shaft waiting for the coal to come bubbling up to the surface. One must go deep down, and work out every vein carefully.”
— Arthur Sullivan

If Your Birthday is May 13
(The Day of Natural Appeal) | Taurus Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Notice what garners your intense appreciation today, particularly in the arts. Is it works (or people) that are especially sexual, or emotionally intense, or worth a lot of money? Are ‘poetic’ dark themes or secrets drawing you in? Conversely, do you feel deeply appreciative of friendships, close female bonds, or what you have to share with a relationship partner? By noticing and seeing clearly what you are meeting on the outside, it’s often possible to trace its existence within yourself, too.
Written in the Planets
Today the Moon travels through late Sagittarius. Travel and freedom of movement — including emotional freedom — could be calling your name today. Along the way, the Moon aspects Uranus-Eris, which could feed an urge to shake things up. There’s also a reminder to keep your actions ethical; it’s amazing what people use their emotional state to justify. Note that as the Moon conjoins retrograde Saturn and the Galactic Core late in the evening the tone could shift to something more somber, yet also more tuned in to what you might call ‘cosmic truths’. Watch out for dogma, and adjust your spiritual antennae accordingly.
