Adam Smith writes: Not only do many people not know
what time they were born, it’s often tricky for astrologers to get
a proper birth date. It’s Shakespeare’s 451st birthday today, for
example, but the date is based on the fact he was baptised on April
25 – and the neat coincidence with St George’s Day. So he could easily
have been born a few days earlier, making him an Aries. Right? Not
exactly. The Julian calendar then in use was 11 days behind the present
Gregorian reckoning, making Shakespeare a present-day Taurus in anyone’s
book. See what we have to deal with!
Madalyn Aslan writes:Tonight there’s a sexy Moon in Aquarius calling
for us to celebrate the fact that life exists, somehow, some way.
As I write I’m finishing my book about YOUR LUCK – how to find it,
how to hold it, how to set it free, and, above all, how to love it.
In these times when we should be making love more than ever (and making
you-know-what not at all) everyone’s luck is not by chance, but by
choice. Let’s choose well. I’ll leave you with a choice made years
ago by Helen Keller, an inspirational person I respect very much:
“Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor
do the children of man as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is
no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a
daring adventure, or nothing.” Seeing, hearing, speaking. Now.
Nick Campion writes: The current Venus-Uranus pattern is one of the most powerful in legend. It relates to the idea of the timeless love affair which passes through tragedy but then endures for ever. And on an everyday level it encourages all people who are driven by raw passion! But, turning to higher things, I found this quote from the German philosopher Immanuel Kant. He said, ‘Two things fill the mind with ever new and increasing wonder and awe – the starry heavens above me and the moral law within me’. Wise words indeed, and spoken over 200 years ago!
SATURDAY APRIL 26
Thanks to the guest astrologers
My thanks to the excellent astrologers who have been sitting in for me over the past few days. I will continue my break on Monday and Tuesday. Meanwhile, here are your weekly forecasts as usual (I wrote these before I went on my hols!).
