“The Patriot Act was used against me in total contradiction to its stated purpose. Or perhaps it was the most logical use of the law, since it establishes a legal framework to crush free thinking and interrupt individual questioning of the government. It is the beginning of all dictatorship in America.”
— Susan Lindauer

If Your Birthday is Jan. 11
(The Day of Evaluation) | Capricorn Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
When was the last time you surprised yourself? Picture this: you’re going along as usual, when suddenly you express something (perhaps even in a dream) that runs counter to your professed belief system. Yet it feels less like something new, and more like something you’ve always known but never acknowledged, or even noticed. If something like that happens to you, it does not have to throw you into chaos. See if you can let it fire you up to be a little freer regarding your emotional needs, and observe where that leads.
Written in the Planets
Energy is building toward tomorrow’s Full Moon in Cancer. You might be feeling this as some kind of tension, emotional pressure or interpersonal stalemate — or even as heightened awareness of some type of cycle in your life. Yet this Full Moon is also part of a grand cardinal cross: an exact lineup of planets in Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. The sky is emphasizing the idea of taking initiative, particularly action that connects you with others in your environment. Aspects to the Sun today suggest you can successfully move ahead with some project you might have thought was ‘too much’, and in the process you’ll gain some level of self-understanding. Mars and Pluto are emphasizing the effectiveness of working cooperatively toward group goals.
