“Whatever you proclaim as your identity here in the material realm is also your drag. You are not your religion. You are not your skin color. You are not your gender, your politics, your career, or your marital status. You are none of the superficial things that this world deems important. The real you is the energy force that created the entire universe!”

It would seem you have a rare opportunity to achieve some significant personal validation at a visceral level. It can take a lot to accept oneself — particularly those deepest emotions and sensations — but approach the matter with the same kindness and understanding you might with any other person. The result may just surprise you.
Written in the Planets
Whom do you really wish to be, and what kind of a world do you truly want? These are questions we ask ourselves all the time; but Neptune finally crossing the Moon’s South Node today could give you more than just a peek at the answer that’s true for you. In the current circumstances it is perhaps more important than ever not to allow our most sacred ideals to wither. Practice faith and trust in order to bolster yours all you can; and know that you really do have the power to create unspeakable beauty.
