“It suddenly dawned on me one day, when I was reading in the paper about a woman wrestler, that being a curmudgeon was the last thing in the world that a man can be that a woman cannot be. Women can be irritating — after all, they are women — but they cannot be curmudgeons.”
— Cleveland Amory

If Your Birthday is Sept. 2
(The Day of the Businesslike Attitude) | Virgo Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Most of our lives, we’re told we cannot be the person we really are. This is enforced by all kinds of conditioning, from dress codes to rules of appropriateness to the presumed responsibility for keeping the peace. What if none of that mattered? What if the heat and momentum of your consciousness could burn or push through all of that padding? Well, you can.
Written in the Planets
Today’s trine between Mars in Leo and Uranus in Aries favors trying what’s new and exciting. Although, this seems to come with a caveat, regarding identifying too closely with your ideas and your ego’s stake in things. Mars and retrograde Mercury are moving into a conjunction in Leo, exact tomorrow. What are your true concerns? What is honestly a matter of integrity, and what is not? Both Mars aspects are activating the recent eclipse degree; between that and Mercury’s retrograde state, it seems some reflection and connecting of the dots is in order. Watch also for defensiveness — your own, or in projected form — and handle it with care, from the heart.
