If Your Birthday is May 28
(The Day of the Innovative Trailblazer) | Gemini Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
You’re in the process of freeing yourself and your ambitions to approach new heights. That means standing in your own power, which might feel a little scary, especially if it’s a relatively new sensation. However, the more you act in accordance with your integrity and ethics, the easier your newfound independence will become.
Written in the Planets
Adherence to laws and social norms is viewed in certain circles as an indicator of moral character. Like other such indicators, it’s only partly reliable; the history of civil disobedience and the civil rights movements make that clear. If progress is to occur at all, sometimes we must break the rules; and this in itself can be a moral imperative. Aspects by Mars today serve as a reminder that you have, at minimum, the right to question a precept if it conflicts with your sense of justice or your conscience. It’s called democracy.
