“The artist must elect to fight for freedom or slavery. I have made my choice. I had no alternative. The history of the capitalist era is characterized by the degradation of my people: despoiled of their lands, their true culture destroyed…denied equal protection of the law, and deprived their rightful place in the respect of their fellows.”
— Paul Robeson

If Your Birthday is April 9
(The Day of Excess) | Aries Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Growth is a journey. It’s natural enough to feel frustrated when things don’t go as speedily as planned or snags get into the thread. Yet errors, tangents and obstacles provide the relish of life, so long as they can be seen as solvable challenges. We get past them, move on and often find they contained invaluable gifts for the path ahead.
Written in the Planets
Mercury’s station retrograde is accompanied by an intriguing T-square involving the archetypal lovers, Eros and Psyche, along with Nessus. This is palpably suggestive of a potential big healing moment in relationships. This could include your relationship with yourself, especially how you view your personal attractions. The trick would seem to be taking everything at a more leisured pace and ensuring clear, careful, deliberate communication. Take all the time you need to think before speaking, and be prepared to listen attentively.
