If Your Birthday is Oct. 6

Today’s Moon-Saturn conjunction is a reminder to prioritize business over pleasure. But it’s also a reminder to have fun, and to keep your sense of humor. Ultimately, your heart’s desire is to be driven by passion, and to be passionate about everything you do. When you get there, what you’ll discover is that work and play morph into the same thing.
Written in the Planets
We live in genuinely interesting and strange times; but for reasons related to that fact, many people simply don’t notice it. Here’s why I think that is. I call it the GPS phenomenon. Most people are familiar with this thing that gives you directions from the astral plane. It’s like the voice of a digital spirit guide telling you where to go. With GPS you always know what to do next, and you usually get to your destination just fine, but you have no context for where you’ve traveled. The past and the future disappear. The here and now — supposedly the most spiritual state — exists with no wider context. This is the story of our lives right now, living under digital conditions.
