If Your Birthday is April 6
(The Day of the Experimenter) | Aries Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
This could prove to be one of those times when you can really accomplish something important, especially in terms of a creative project. Someone close might have a useful idea to offer. What’s clear is that you need to think outside the box. If you find yourself dismissing something as impossible, question that belief.
Written in the Planets
One possible interpretation of Saturn’s station retrograde today seems to be the importance of a healing space, whether physical or metaphorical. We all need somewhere we can go to rest and from which we can emerge refreshed. If you have a place in mind, you might consider visiting there soon, and perhaps deepening your relationship with it over the next few weeks. If nothing else, we all benefit from a little respite.
