“The imagination…that reconciling and mediatory power, which incorporating the reason in images of the sense and organizing (as it were) the flux of the senses by the permanence and self-circling energies of the reason, gives birth to a system of symbols, harmonious in themselves, and consubstantial with the truths of which they are the conductors.”
— Samuel Taylor Coleridge

If Your Birthday is Oct. 21
(The Day of Singularity) | Libra Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
To be happy in this world, it’s essential to address the whole matter of fear. That’s not easy, because there seems to be so much to be afraid of. Yet you are bigger than anything you might worry about; and as you know, anxiety is merely frustrated creative energy. Relief from fear comes when you find the appropriate ways to express yourself. There are many.
Written in the Planets
Is it time to show your devotion in a new way? Are your traditional methods not quite getting the job done? Has the meaning of “devotion” — especially in relationships, and even more so in culturally “unorthodox” or “taboo” relationships — felt like it’s straining to be expressed more vitally? Today the asteroid Vesta in Libra makes a square to Pluto in Capricorn. Note that since squares generally indicate internally felt tension, this astrology could be pointing you toward your relationship with yourself. It also could carry some serious sexual heat given the planets involved. When was the last time you stoked your own fire as an act of self-honoring?
