“I was forced, through seeing the error of their foundation, to abandon all belief in every religion which had been taught to man. But my religious feelings were immediately replaced by the spirit of universal charity — not for a sect, or a party, or for a country or a colour — but for the human race, and with a real and ardent desire to do good.”
— Robert Owen

If Your Birthday is May 14
(The Day of the Modern Irrepressibles) | Taurus Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
It would seem certain desires and feelings that might not be fully conscious are striving to be heard. The easiest way to bring them to light is probably via creative means; although you can also simply pause and listen. It’s likely this process and its results will prove enriching, possibly exciting. You may, however, be sure of this: you have nothing to fear from knowing yourself better.
Written in the Planets
The extent to which human beings are masters of ourselves — in the sense of being completely conscious of our motives and actions — is debatable. We like to believe we’re in control. Certain religions definitively assign us rulership over all living things (which may be partly responsible for our consistent underestimation of animal intelligence). How far does this reflect the real truth? Certainly we are self-aware (in a broad sense); yet, particuarly at present, the effects of not being aware of who one really is, and acting for the most part on impulses, are clearly visible. Aspects involving Mercury today serve as a reminder that we all contain a primal side, which must be acknowledged and reconciled within us. Hiding from anything makes it more powerful. Respecting it is a part of understanding who we truly are. Embrace your whole self.
