(The Day of Striking Deeds) | Aquarius Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Practice being open to your feelings. They are valid, and you have every right to experience and express them. As a species, we do not pay nearly enough attention to our instincts. Yours may provide valuable insights for you now.
Written in the Planets
Mars is close to the end of its sojourn in Pisces, and today it squares the centaur Pholus. Be extra cautious with your words and exercise diplomacy — though not to the detriment of honesty. Try to steer clear of situations you know to be provoking. At the same time, you may have a constructive use for the likely increase of energy.
