“We have a lot more work to do in our common struggle against bigotry and discrimination. I say “common struggle” because I believe very strongly that all forms of bigotry and discrimination are equally wrong and should be opposed by right-thinking Americans everywhere. Freedom from discrimination based on sexual orientation is surely a fundamental human right in any great democracy, as much as freedom from racial, religious, gender, or ethnic discrimination.”
— Coretta Scott King

If Your Birthday is April 27
(The Day of Self-Sufficiency) | Taurus Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
You may feel like you’re living on the edge, or have reached a transition point in your life; both are true, though the edge you’re traveling along is an actual beginning that’s starting to gather momentum. Rather than push the wind or the river, ride along with it, though as a wilderness traveler, make sure you’re careful with your resources.
Written in the Planets
Aspects by the Sun and Vesta indicate that today might be a good one for honing intuitive or empathetic skills. However, take care to check your facts before acting on any conclusions. Listening and gathering information are almost always helpful where there is any uncertainty. If you should feel inclined to make contact with the spiritual realm today, it could be closer and more accessible than you might think.
