If Your Birthday is Oct. 14
(The Day of Moderation) | Get Your Libra Birthday Reading
If there is something you’ve been bursting to tell someone, or perhaps something you’d simply feel more comfortable having out in the open, this is a good window for speaking up. Remember the lesson of Mars retrograde earlier this year: that honesty about your feelings really is the best policy.
Written in the Planets
The Full Moon we’re approaching will probably shed some light (quite literally) on the questions of identity and technology that have been at issue during this era of Uranus-Eris. There could be epiphanies of various kinds, both individual and collective. Today’s astrology is suggesting you pay attention to where you feel a certain visceral discomfort, perhaps cognitive dissonance. This might just supply a key to the puzzle.
