25 June

indexOriginality consists in returning to the origin.

Nothing is invented, for it’s written in nature first.

Antoni Gaudi, born 25 June 1852, Sun in Cancer, Moon in Libra, Ascendant in Virgo.

The architecture is the arrangement of light, the sculpture is the play of light.

Yann Martel, born on 25 June 1963, Sun in Cancer, Moon in Leo, Spanish-born Canadian novelist.

I must say a word about fear. It is life’s only true opponent. Only fear can defeat life. It is a clever, treacherous adversary, how well I know. It has no decency, respects no law or convention, shows no mercy. It goes for your weakest spot, which it finds with unnerving ease. It begins in your mind, always … so you must fight hard to express it. You must fight hard to shine the light of words upon it. Because if you don’t, if your fear becomes a wordless darkness that you avoid, perhaps even manage to forget, you open yourself to further attacks of fear because you never truly fought the opponent who defeated you.

 

George Orwell, born 25 June 1903, English author, Sun and Moon in Cancer, Ascendant in Virgo.
