If Your Birthday is Feb. 9
(The Day of Vibrancy) | Aquarius Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
As we gear up towards the lunar eclipse, you may find yourself getting a recurring idea — one of those intuitions that hangs just on the edge of the consciousness. If you notice it, pay attention and dig deep. Somewhere within is likely to be a nugget of wisdom that could help you to see things in a whole new light.
Written in the Planets
The Uranus-Eris conjunction is aspected by both the Sun and Vesta today, drawing everyone’s attention once again to the weird displacement experience we’re all having. If your experience of this seeming alternate reality is getting a little too much, don’t forget that you always have the option of withdrawing for a little while. If necessary, take a more active approach — practice grounding your energy, or visit somewhere that makes you feel stronger or safer.
