“In any country, regardless of what its laws say, wherever people act upon the idea that the disadvantage of one man is the good of another, there slavery exists. Wherever, in any country the whole people feel that the happiness of all is dependent upon the happiness of the weakest, there freedom exists.”
— Booker T. Washington

If Your Birthday is April 5
(The Day of Consequence) | Aries Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
In what ways do your own needs and ambitions mirror the needs of society? That is, see if you can identify the ways that you can contribute positively to the world around you at the same time that you go after something you’re eager to address or upgrade for yourself. You may be able to do so at this time without kicking up much resistance (if any) from others. The more creative you can be, and the more tangible your actions, the better for all involved.
Written in the Planets
You don’t have to sacrifice yourself to the chaos of this world — emotionally or otherwise — just to be an engaged, caring being. And there are ways to show your devotion to your fellow humans that do not hog-tie you with technology, or to the PR game of social media. Yet today’s square between Vesta in Cancer and Eris (and Uranus) in Aries might have you wondering. Ceres in Taurus, in a loose sextile to Vesta, is reminding you to bring yourself back to basics: eat nourishing food; get enough sleep; move, stretch and massage your body; give your sexual energy healthy outlets (including solo). A daily yoga of self-care can offer a world of support as you give yourself in service to those you care about.
