“The very corner-stone of an education intended to form great minds, must be the recognition of the principle, that the object is to call forth the greatest possible quantity of intellectual power, and to inspire the intensest love of truth: and this without a particle of regard to the results to which the exercise of that power may lead, even though it should conduct the pupil to opinions diametrically opposite to those of his teachers.”
— John Stuart Mill

If Your Birthday is May 20
(The Day of Prolific Expression) | Birthday Readings: Taurus | Gemini | Others
You must trust your intuition. There will be times when you don’t have time or opportunity to get the facts, and in those situations, you must have faith in what your heart tells you is true. This will be unlikely to feel like fear. Your reminders of what to avoid will feel like a little tug away from something, and what to approach will just feel good.
Written in the Planets
With the Sun entering Gemini later today, see if your outlook on life doesn’t feel refreshed. You might pick up on an option that did not seem to be there before, or another side of a story. If you sense that the point of resolution or satisfaction between the possibilities you’re now considering is just out of reach, don’t fret; this moment shall pass. Earlier in the day, Jupiter in Libra square Eros in Cancer suggests that expressing your erotic or loving feelings could very well help to create more of them.
