Reach for what gets to the essence of you, and bypass everything else. Your birthday this year is accompanied by some truly astounding astrology. Compromising on the things you value the very most is no longer an option for you, because you can clearly see that only leads to an impasse. Eventually, all routes converge on the one you know you need to follow, and you have every reason to skip the sidetracks and head right for the goal.

Written In The Planets
About seven-and-a-half hours or so after Uranus changes signs today, there will be a New Moon in Pisces. If you’ve been feeling on edge lately, or like you’re waiting for something to crest or emerge but you’re not sure what, Uranus finally making its move may offer the shift you’ve been needing. That said, it could still come with a surprise that calls for some flexibility; which, in turn, might be easier to exercise if you can give yourself a little space to feel what’s going on, and to see all your response options.
When the Sun and Moon conjoin in Pisces for the New Moon, they’re also conjunct Neptune and the asteroid Vesta. On one level, this is a reminder of the need to hold space for yourself, and for whatever emerges into your awareness through conscious means (such as external things you encounter) or through your dreams and intuition. What does it mean to “hold space for yourself”? It can be as literal as just giving yourself some dedicated time alone, without distractions (such as your phone), and noticing what thoughts and emotions are present. It might mean something more structured like meditation or a ritual. You can also think of it more figuratively: such as practicing not judging yourself for whatever you’re going through right now.
This could prove especially helpful if you’re feeling the building square between Pluto in Capricorn and Eris in Aries. Yes, it’s necessary to respond to deep, foundational changes — especially the internal kind — with some kind of action. However, creating total chaos is not your only option. Staying in communication with those closest to you about what’s going on should help in that regard. Just be aware that with Mercury retrograde in Pisces (as of yesterday), the emotional tone, energy, or general impression of how you say what you say might convey even more than your words do.
