If Your Birthday is March 21
(The Day of Clarity) | Birthday Readings: Pisces | Aries | Others
New day, new season…new you? Perhaps. Yet in your zest to get fired up and plunge ahead in life, it might pay to consider where you fit with the historical family pattern you were born into. What you learn might inspire you to better integrate traits inherited from your ancestors; or it could provoke you to push away and forge your own path that much more clearly. Either way, once you get a feel for your family’s traditional dance steps, your own signature moves will make that much more sense.
Written in the Planets
If your plan for achieving your dream feels at odds with some kind of ‘cosmic truth’, what does that mean? Does it mean that your strategy needs to take into account your soul’s purpose or dharma better? The good news is that this situation — if true for you — can be worked with. Currently the asteroid Pallas is making a square to the Galactic Core. Although squares signify tension, they also facilitate the integration of whatever is causing that tension. See if you can feel your way to the place where facts, wisdom and intuition come together in an ‘a-ha’ moment. Anything that nudges you toward embodying joyful service is probably a good start. With Saturn conjunct Pholus also near the Galactic Core, don’t be surprised if that ‘nudge’ bursts open of its own accord.
