“The Constitution they wrote was designed to protect the rights of white, male citizens. As there were no black Founding Fathers, there were no founding mothers — a great pity, on both counts. It is not too late to complete the work they left undone.”
— Shirley Chisholm, advocating the Equal Rights Amendment in 1970. There still isn’t one.

If Your Birthday is Nov. 30
(The Day of Measured Attack) | Sagittarius Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
You may find yourself especially attuned today to social attitudes and motivations, and how easily they can act like a runaway train. Often that is not productive. However, this phenomenon can take a beautiful twist when we’re talking about attitudes of gratitude, love, a sense of soul’s purpose or cosmic oneness. If you can tap into that message, feel free to spread it far and wide.
Written in the Planets
With Mercury conjunct both centaur Pholus and the Galactic Core in Sagittarius today, consider popping the cork on that bottle of universal truth and love you’ve been holding for a special occasion. Pholus suggests that small ideas can often have surprisingly big effects. With the center of the Milky Way Galaxy right there, things take on a potentially profound tone. It gets hard this time of year to slow down and be still. But if you can take a moment, see if you feel yourself tuning into some higher vibration or the better essence of humanity. We are part of something far vaster than what most of us can even conceive. When you think, speak and act with that in mind, it can ripple out further than you’ll ever know.
