If Your Birthday is June 24
(The Day of the Blissful Wizard) | Cancer Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
A spectacular New Moon on your birthday is encouraging you to live courageously, and to push your potential past any limits you think hold you back. At this stage in your life, all the old hang-ups and points of hesitation are gone. Step past them like they were never there, and teach yourself what life is all about. You don’t need certainty; you need adventure.
Written in the Planets
You know how, when you have a clearly defined space, container or structure — such as when making art of any type — that sense of boundaries can actually help you to focus your creativity? You can then sometimes get even wilder and more experimental than you would otherwise, because your impulses are not so scattered. You may even feel ‘safer’ while pushing those boundaries. A trine between Saturn in Sagittarius and Eris in Aries could have a similar effect, related to your beliefs and sense of identity. One particularly ripe area for exploration is the realm of love, lust and sex: today also features a trine between Venus in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn. If anything sets the stage to go deep into your sensual side, your body, your cravings, your raw erotic power, your magnetism, Venus-Pluto is it. Oh, yeah: it could be great for profound relationship insights and art making, too.
