“I am a woman and it is not worth so much to a company for me to write a letter as it would be for a man. Well, the world is quite satisfied with the present arrangement, and we can only protest against such a state of things, and strive to arouse the minds of others to their state of servitude and dependence on the caprice and whims and selfishness of man.”
— Sarah Bagley

If Your Birthday is April 19
(The Day of Solid Control) | Birthday Readings: Aries | Taurus | All Other Signs
You seem to be closing in on something. Whether that means winding down energetically, finalizing logistics and putting last pieces into place, or releasing attachment to something (or another variation on the theme) will depend on your individual circumstances. It’s possible this could have you feeling a little edgy. Luckily, a little will go a long way right now. You don’t have to push as much as you might think you do. A small nudge and a prayer could do the trick.
Written in the Planets
Today is the last quarter Moon: a square between the Aries Sun and Capricorn Moon. And it happens with both luminaries in the last degrees of their respective signs. This could feel a little edgy; like you’re wearing work clothes you’re ready to change out of when you come home from the office after a long day. Yet you don’t need to rush the process. It will all unfold in good time, and possibly with less effort than you anticipate. The last quarter Moon also relates to bringing projects to a close — especially anything you began around the last New Moon a month ago, and which peaked with last week’s Full Moon. Take inventory of what you have going on. Later tonight after the Sun moves into Taurus, see if you can feel yourself shifting into a steadier pace.
