If Your Birthday is May 21
(The Day of Unfailing Vision) | Birthday Readings: Taurus | Gemini | Others
It may seem somewhat paradoxical, but exploring new territory is a lot easier when what is familiar is reliable. That is to say, feeling secure in something or someone close to home can make you bolder. This is pretty much what’s been happening for you. You’ve come to know what you can truly depend on. Now’s your chance for an adventure.

Orcus stationing direct (among other astrology) could bring up similar themes to a Mercury station; mainly that the truth will out. Orcus was named after the underworld deity whose specific province it was to bring oath-breakers to justice. You might say it represents the idea that all lies are discovered in the end. If something appears mysterious or the facts seem incomplete, a key to the puzzle may be revealed. Meanwhile, be as clear as possible in your communications, and strive for absolute transparency.
