“The right to discuss freely and openly, by speech, by the pen, by the press, all political questions, and to examine and animadvert upon all political institutions, is a right so clear and certain, so interwoven with our other liberties, so necessary, in fact to their existence, that without it we must fall at once into depression or anarchy. To say that he who holds unpopular opinions must hold them at the peril of his life, and that, if he expresses them in public, he has only himself to blame if they who disagree with him should rise and put him to death, is to strike at all rights, all liberties, all protection of the laws, and to justify and extenuate all crimes.”
— William Cullen Bryant

If Your Birthday is Nov. 3
(The Day of the Long Breath) | Get Your Scorpio Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
It’s essential that you keep emotional control this year. Situations may take you by surprise, that you might never have suspected would get under your skin. There is an advantage here: the more self-aware you are, the more you will be able to call the shots in any situation involving an understanding of psychology. And that will count for a lot.
Written in the Planets
Psyche, an asteroid, describes the sensation of a problem that will not resolve or a spiritual injury that will not heal. While the experience is real, healing is indeed possible, though that requires seeing your situation for what it is. With Psyche opposite Neptune, that might be challenging, since Neptune makes things difficult to perceive. Yet it also describes a possibility of direct contact with one’s divine self, which is accessed through faith. Not hope, but an intuitive gesture of actual trust.
