“I don’t know how to save the world. I don’t have the answers or The Answer. I hold no secret knowledge as to how to fix the mistakes of generations past and present. I only know that without compassion and respect for all of Earth’s inhabitants, none of us will survive — nor will we deserve to.”
— Leonard Peltier

If Your Birthday is Sept. 12
(The Day of the Fearless Crusader) | Virgo Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
You are liberated from many old ideas about yourself and, notably, none of them came from you. Keep an inventory of what people told you about yourself when you were younger, and what they say now, and scrutinize them carefully. Using a process of elimination, you’ll travel light-years learning how to decide, for yourself, who you really are.
Written in the Planets
Although the approaching square between the Virgo Sun and Saturn in Sagittarius (on Wednesday) could feel frustrating, the sky seems to be offering a balm to ease you into things. Today Venus in Leo makes a trine to Saturn. Although Saturn in this aspect may temper your tendency to be demonstrative in relationships, it can bolster loyalty. Notice whether you feel steady and stable emotionally. You can use that sense of stability and responsibility to put yourself in a good position for what develops later in the week.
