“I say, ‘I could not move, because history had me glued to the seat.’ And they say, ‘How is that?’ I say, ‘Because it felt like Sojourner Truth’s hands were pushing me down on one shoulder and Harriet Tubman’s hands were pushing me down on another shoulder, and I could not move’.”
— Claudette Colvin

If Your Birthday is Sept. 5
(The Day of the Fanciful Sovereign) | Virgo Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
You’re no longer bound by the fears that held you back in the past. You can now act on so much that you’ve wanted to do for so long. Yet don’t try to do everything at once. Choose one or two items from your agenda that you’ve desired the very most, and give yourself the full experience. The only way to live passionately is to live one day at a time.
Written in the Planets
Between Mercury stationing direct in Virgo today and the buildup to tomorrow’s Pisces Full Moon, today’s astrology is asking you to pay attention. To what, exactly? To what your quiet voice of intuition is whispering to you; to any sign that someone might not be giving you complete information; to any task that requires your full focus. That said, Mars moving into Virgo today is a reminder that you’ll get more done if you can keep one eye on the big picture no matter how much you want to focus on the details (and remember that not all details are equally important). See if you can stay present and aware enough to notice whether Mercury stationing direct offers a missing puzzle piece.
