If Your Birthday is May 27
(The Day of Driven Dedication) | Gemini Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
As frustrating as it is to go head to head with someone who seems illogical and holds power, remember that there’s always the possibility to take another approach. This moves beyond the mantra, “If they go low; we go high.” It’s more like, “If they set limits, I get creative.” You can still fulfill your legitimate responsibilities (have you figured out which ones those are yet?) and be you. If an authority figure does happen to let their ethics slip, you have the option to stay in your integrity rather than following that lead. That can feel combustive, but remember: there are worse things.
Written in the Planets
With the Moon moving into Cancer today, notice whether your more domestic, nesting tendencies come out — including and especially your emotional sensitivity. With Mars in Gemini moving into its opposition with Saturn in Sagittarius, the urge to confront those in authority (especially if that authority is ideological) increases. You might be feistier than usual or feel provoked to react, or could meet someone fitting that description. Your emotions, represented by the Moon, are important indicators of your reality, though they’re not the only ones. Even so, expressing them can be key in establishing where you stand — and, therefore, who you are.
