If Your Birthday is Oct. 17
(The Day of Precarious Balance) | Libra Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Understand the ways you’ve been hurt in the past and you can set yourself free from them, and experience a whole new life. This is a process of self-discovery, which requires an unusual depth of honesty with yourself. Once you get the hang of that, you’ll discover there’s no turning back. As a great philosopher once said, an unexamined life is not worth living.
Written in the Planets
Today’s move of Mercury into Scorpio puts the planet of the mind and communication into a very intuitive sign. But that also comes with a reminder to use carefully what you intuit, perceive or dig up — for the highest good of all. Mercury in Scorpio can get secretive at one extreme, and sharp or critical at the other extreme. Notice if you find yourself defaulting into one of those modes. The Moon moving into Libra could help smooth things out, at least on the surface, especially as it sails past Venus. Speaking of Venus in early Libra: what is the story or logic of how your current relationship balance came to be the way it is? Let Mercury help you uncover its deepest roots.

As always, your reading is spot on and validates what I am experiencing in life at this time. The sheer acknowledgment that as a Libra I need balance, beauty and aesthetics in my life to make me tick on, balanced, in my day-to-day endeavors and consequently some very huge endeavors for the year was just what I needed to keep going.
