“I think we as people struggle for what is meaningful in our lives, and I think that modern, contemporary life is as easy as it’s ever been, for many, many people, and the amount of physical exertion, for most people, is less than it’s ever been. I think that there is something about the ritual of making things more difficult that people find meaning in.”
— Carrie Brownstein

If Your Birthday is Sept. 27
(The Day of the Ambiguous Hero) | Libra Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Today’s meeting between the Sun and the meaningful asteroid Vesta are reminding you to be true to your calling. Devotion is perhaps the most deeply necessary form of love in a world that seems to be unraveling at the seams, or fixated on the latest bright, shiny object. Day by day, week by week, rise to the calling of the purpose that has chosen you.
Written in the Planets
How consciously can you hold space? As in, for your own thoughts and emotions; for the needs and desires of others; for the ways in which a person’s spiritual, sexual or relational evolution (including your own) might seem to fly in the face of what is ‘proper’ or expected? The Sun’s conjunction to Vesta in Libra today shines some light on these questions. Even so, some ways of crossing a threshold are easier or more constructive than others (even if you didn’t fully realize you were ready). So with all the high-energy astrology this week, including today’s Mercury aspects (detailed here), you’ll want to keep your mind clear of substances, open like a parachute, and dialed into a discerning wavelength.
