CAPRICORN: July 2-8
Percival Lowell (1855-1916), an influential astronomer who launched the exploration that led to the discovery of Pluto, made some big mistakes. Gazing at Venus through his telescope, he swore he saw spokes emanating from a central hub on the planet’s surface. We now know Venus is shrouded in such thick cloud cover, no surface features are visible. What did Lowell see? Due to an anomaly in his apparatus, the telescope projected shadows from inside his eyes onto the image of Venus. The “spokes” were actually his retinas’ blood vessels. This is a cautionary tale for the weeks ahead. Don’t confuse what’s within you with what’s outside you. If you can clearly discern the difference, your closest relationships experience healing breakthroughs.
