If Your Birthday is Sept. 26
(The Day of Patient Practice) | Libra Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Measure your words carefully, because they count. Take care of your community, because your efforts make a difference to many. Be true to your spiritual commitments, because your inner relationship dictates the course of every other facet of your life. Finally, recognize your need to do good work as one of your most basic purposes of living.
Written in the Planets
With such astrological fireworks in the sky (see Eric’s Astrology Diary for the full run-down), you might be wondering how to harness all the energy — or even just how to hang onto the ride. Today, in the midst of it all, Mercury makes a T-square with the minor planet Chaos in Gemini and the centaur Ixion in Sagittarius. Here’s one possible reading: If you’re trying to decide what to do, and there seem to be two or more equally valid (and fertile) options, you might need to look more closely at them. Ixion’s presence here is a reminder that you may be more capable of behaving unethically than you’d like to believe, and that urge may feel compelling. Choosing well could mean the difference between accessing the richest creative source available, and just making a mess.
