If Your Birthday is Feb. 19
(The Day of the Explorer) | Birthday Readings: Aquarius | Pisces | Others
Your creative brain seems poised to deliver a few golden nuggets; there might even be a moment of sublime inspiration. Keep in mind, though, that even magic beans need soil, water and proper nutrients to grow a stalk. Whether or not you experience the sudden flash, keep feeding your grey cells.
Written in the Planets
Today, Venus squares a centaur named Amycus. A few ideas arise from this. One possibility is that you might discover a hang-up regarding notions of “proper” behaviour, particularly to do with relationships. Another is that you might find yourself rebelling against an opportunity, such as the chance to get closer to someone. If you encounter something of this kind, it’s probably worth taking the time to find the root. Be patient with yourself, if time is indeed required.
