“I have really no religion, for my God, being a spirit shown merely by reason to exist, his properties utterly unknown, is no help to my life. I have nor the parson’s comfortable doctrine that every good action has its reward, and every sin is forgiven. My whole religion is this: do every duty, and expect no reward for it, either here or hereafter.”
— Bertrand Russell

If Your Birthday is May 18
(The Day of Established Activism) | Taurus Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Seek cooperation from your friends and colleagues and you’ll be able to attain your highest goals. It will help if you present them in their most idealistic and altruistic light, since that’s what’s most likely to motivate people. Of course, make sure that you’re compensated fairly and get to have your fun, though the common good is your common ground.
Written in the Planets
If you have not already started, today is a prime day to get traction on resolving some persistent difficulty in your life. Physical ailments and spiritual concerns — and combinations of the two — are the primary areas to focus on. It’s easy to forget in our overly digitized world just how intimately connected our bodies are with our emotional and energetic states. Yet how many times have you had an upset stomach when stressed out, scared or anticipating emotional pain? That’s just one common example of how our bodies talk to us about our spiritual health needs. Today, listen to your body and act on what you hear. The sextile between the Taurus Sun and Chiron in Pisces offers you support in your pursuit of health.
