If Your Birthday is May 7
(The Day of Devotion) | Taurus Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Ideally, life is about more than simple survival. If you find yourself in need of a calling, or even a temporary project, start looking. Chances are you’ll find one that suits. Ignore any wet-blanketing by others; pay more attention to those who will support you in your growth. If they’re not already obvious to you, you’ll find them by pitching your idea.
Written in the Planets
Beliefs are an essential part of the human structure. They assist our imagination, and help us to form a moral framework; though you don’t need a divinity to do that. It’s important, however, that we deal with the potential consequences of our beliefs for ourselves, and for other people, especially if a specific idea prompts certain actions. Religious positions that involve sexual repression are an obvious example, though there are others. It’s up to all of us to ensure that, whatever our vision of the ethereal realms, we make life on earth as peaceful as we can all round.
