“Both dreams and myths are important communications from ourselves to ourselves. If we do not understand the language in which they are written, we miss a great deal of what we know and tell ourselves in those hours when we are not busy manipulating the outside world.”
— Erich Fromm

If Your Birthday is March 23
(The Day of Curiosity) | Aries Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
It is possible, no doubt, to contain the flow of passion and emotion through strong effort. To a certain extent, we all have to rein in our stronger feelings in order to get through the day. Yet, if we don’t give ourselves room at times to breathe, the sense of constraint can feel much like trying to squeeze into ill-fitting clothes. Cherish your emotional life: it is as essential a part of you as your capacity for logical thought.
Written in the Planets
Aspects involving Mercury and Pallas suggest that a certain issue may be broader or more complex than it currently appears. There could be hidden information, or an unexpected new angle that will suddenly make itself known. Either way, it may be preferable to carry out additional research, rather than to forge ahead on what might be an incomplete understanding.
