Be careful not to exaggerate your survival needs. In fact, take care to sort out needs from desires. There’s a difference. Needs are on the level of oxygen; desire is on the level of what you might choose on a menu, or what outfit you might wear. One place this shows up specifically is “emotional needs,” which are almost always exaggerated and, consequently, dramatized. It would be better for your happiness in relationships, and your happiness overall, to say want when you mean want, and to set aside the concept of need (except, of course, things like the bathroom, water and sleep). You have a gift not only for survival, but for getting what you want. You can even afford to open your ears to the desires of others and pass forward some of your good fortune.

If Your Birthday is June 6
(The Day of the Visionary) | Gemini Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Everyone and everything in your world seems to be moving faster than you can track. Even with your futuristic mind, you missed certain imminent changes. Yet if you relax and look around, you’ll see a pattern that nobody else can see, and that will reveal your many options. Remember, you’re the one making the decisions. You’re steering your ship.
Written in the Planets
Barbara Hand Clow says of Mercury sextile Chiron, “This is the salesperson who can sell underwear to people who live in a nudist colony.” You may not be a salesperson by profession, but if you need to convey meaning to someone, take advantage of today’s sextile between Mercury and Chiron. With the signs Taurus and Pisces involved, anything to do with the body, the senses, material objects, and how we feel about all of it (emotionally, sexually, spiritually) could be especially ripe for your efforts — which need not be commercial. You might take a more therapeutic tact with this energy; Clow also says that it’s great for counselors and healers, “because they have an immediate sense of what technique to use.” This looks equally true for self-healing efforts. Once Venus leaves Aries for Taurus today, see if your approach softens yet stays effective.
