If Your Birthday is May 9
(The Day of Moral Courage) | Taurus Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Take the lead in your relationships, and let the future take care of itself. So much is in flux that there’s no point trying to control destiny. Let each day bring its own purpose and pleasures, and keep your mind on the present and the people you’re with. You are indeed headed for an unusual destination, and the universe will reveal its secrets in due time.
Written in the Planets
Don’t shy away from intense experiences today; chances are they are exactly what you need to get the inside scoop on some facet of your life. Your deeper motivations, in particular, could be worth investigating — especially as they relate to changes you’d like to make (or feel compelled to make). Today the Sun in Taurus trines Pluto in Capricorn. Yet the Sun is also about to be opposed by the Moon; the Moon enters Scorpio overnight into this morning on its way to full phase tomorrow. You could make a very strong impression on somebody without even trying. Therefore, keep one finger on the emotional pulse of any encounter you have today. That could be key in staying sensitive while still getting the work done that you need to do. When in doubt, be upfront about your side of things, yet open to discovering what the other person brings to the table — and how it might influence you.
