“I don’t want to be considered a hero. Imagine young people would grow up with the feeling that you have to be a hero to do your human duty. I am afraid nobody would ever help other people, because who is a hero? I was not. I was just an ordinary housewife and secretary.”
— Miep Gies (who helped hide Anne Frank and her family)

If Your Birthday is Feb. 15
(The Day of Inventiveness) | Aquarius Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Like many others just now, you are being called to practice devotion to your personal truth. In an age of so much falsehood, there are few qualities more important than authenticity. You are more capable of fulfilling that requirement than you know.
Written in the Planets
By the end of the day, both the Sun and the Moon will have formed the same harmonious aspect to the cosmic homing beacon at the core of our galaxy. Alignments like this tend to be moments of magic and beauty in the best sense, as we catch a glimpse of the majesty of the universe. It may take a little conscious effort to harness and fully experience that inspiration. That’s well worth doing.
