If Your Birthday is March 5
(The Day of Heaven and Hell) | Pisces Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
You may discover a fact that has previously been concealed or obscured, and which may shine a new light on a belief you hold. If this requires you to alter your perspective, take all the time you need. Gather as much relevant information as possible, and reach whatever conclusion seems appropriate. The one thing to avoid is any attempt to bury your head in the sand. Everything else is entirely up to you.
Written in the Planets
Mars’ aspects suggest today could involve something of a grounding experience. If things have recently been a little too fast-paced or out of control, you’ll probably start to experience a more normal tempo. It might even be useful for you to try an exercise in ritual or psychological grounding, which can be as simple as going somewhere you feel safe, or doing relaxing things at home.
