If Your Birthday is Feb. 2
(The Day of Class) | Aquarius Birthday Reading | All Other Signs

Written in the Planets
With everything going on recently, it’s pretty easy to feel stretched. Mercury’s aspects today suggest a possible solution: shoring up real-life relationships. Spend time with friends or loved ones in person. Practice the disappearing art of listening. Make time to step away from the relentless flurry of ever-changing distractions. It might be useful to keep up with the news, but we all need a break now and then.
