Know who you are before you go forward, Sag! 15th century wall hanging {{PD}}

Know who you are before you go forward, Sag! 15th century wall hanging {{PD}}

You may have spent some time last year embroiled in irritating nonsense, or possibly being deceived–or was it simply confusion? but you are out of the fog now, and looking forward to being and expressing yourself, 100%–but are you really sure what that means? One of the hangover effects of last year’s draining or disorienting atmosphere may be a strong desire to get back to your own interests and goals, but a failure to take into account how recent experiences may have changed you, and so changed what you want. Go slow, at least in the first few months of this coming Solar year, through to your next birthday, dear Sagittarius, and make an effort to sort feelings from thoughts–confusing the two may be another thing that plagues your progress–because until you’ve sorted things out and become acquainted with the person you are now, you may continue to operate under an image that’s no longer valid–and that will of course bring you things and life experiences you no longer want. Get things in order and there are big possibilities for both healing yourself and earning–and those are good things, right? Happy Birthday, Sagittarius, and good luck!

Don't let a too-emotional outlook take you off course, Sag. Bonaventura Peeters - 'Fortified Harbour' c1646 {{PD}}

Don’t let a too-emotional outlook take you off course, Sag. Bonaventura Peeters – ‘Fortified Harbour’ c1646 {{PD}}

You and the Collective may not be getting along well this coming Solar year, through to your next birthday, dear Sagittarius; is it because you feel that going along with the program may mean you’ll lose your individuality, or is it because it seems that what the group demands precludes you exercising your creativity in the most genuine way possible? In either case, what you think you know about both Collective energy and your own creative options may be an illusion based in emotion, so before you go into full blown escapism or sabotage in protest, re-evaluate–what you may find is that your true power lies in and through relationships, finances, and your ability to negotiate these, specifically because successful interaction with either money or people requires that you recognize the autonomy and integrity of each; with people the benefits of treating them with respect are obvious, while with money, a thoughtful stance means you send your assets to causes and put them behind ideas that represent your ideals, what truly matters to you–and you’ll glean unexpected benefits from such behavior. Take the time to take a second look at what it is you believe about your reality, and then put your energy behind people, money, or both. Happy Birthday, Sagittarius, and good luck!

You may go on a creative bender this coming year, dear Sag, through to your next birthday, but this attempt to translate a primal, generative energy into your life scenario may cause a great deal of conflict. It’s something you must do; but you must also be prepared for the way expressing yourself will bring the past, in all its technicolor sturm und drang, to glorious life once again. Relationships could be tough and others might not ‘get it’, making for a potentially lonely year. Understanding how difficult this will be is a good start; knowing that what will eventually emerge from all this will be, in some real sense, your masterpiece, should help you see that the struggle, and yes, pain, will be worth it. Facing those buried issues and claiming your strength, wisdom, and your own Self-respect will gain you the respect of others, and will clear the path to that seminal creative moment–so what are you waiting for? Happy Birthday, Sagittarius, and good luck!

Fernand Khnopff - 'I lock my door upon myself' 1891 {{PD}}

Fernand Khnopff – ‘I lock my door upon myself’ 1891 {{PD}}

Sag, it looks to me as if the feelings you feel this coming year, through to your next birthday, may be contrary to (and judgmental of) your natural inclinations, as well as those things you want to accomplish and be. This internal strife may lock you in place and make it very difficult for you to aim successfully for what you want. The most effective approach may be to ground communications and thought in instinct, and by acknowledging things you might otherwise overlook. It’s what you don’t know about or recognize as important that might trip you up this year; focus the mind on facts, real-world circumstances, and effectively dealing with barriers, and you may strike a note of genius in implementing your Will and in taking action that gets you where you want to go. Happy Birthday, dear Sagittarius, and good luck!

What's an Archer to do? Sir Joshua Reynolds 1768 {{PD}}

What’s an Archer to do? Sir Joshua Reynolds 1768 {{PD}}

Memory exerts a strong pull this year, dear Sagittarius, through to your next birthday, and that may take you off a track designed to make the creative, or matters of the House ruled by Neptune, the centerpiece of your attention for the next phase of development. That’s not the only problem: you may also find that matters long ignored can’t be put aside any longer–what’s an Archer to do? Face those previously abandoned issues, and even as you deal with them, draw inspiration from them. The creative is not just about making things, it’s about taking a responsive and resourceful approach to life itself; you have the opportunity to fashion something uniquely inspired and uniquely you in your world this year. Don’t be distracted by what was, particularly by obligations or restrictions; look closely and you’re likely to find that the circumstances that created those ties have either morphed into something else or are long gone–and that means you are free. Happy Birthday, Sag, and good luck!

Deal with your issues, Sag, and you could be feeling brand new soon. Gustav Klimt 1917 {{PD}}

Deal with your issues, Sag, and you could be feeling brand new soon. Gustav Klimt 1917 {{PD}}

This year, dear Sagittarius, you’re a New Moon baby! That means you are offered, one way or another, a fresh start, especially in matters of the natal Houses ruled by the Sun and Moon, in the House where the New Moon occurs, and in matters of identity and life purpose. You’re moving into a new phase of creative expression, especially in terms of your Soul’s purpose and intents, but first you must define the facets of Self-expression, preference, taste, and focus that will guide you in a fresh direction–and that may not be as easy to do as it sounds. The past, memory, and your own rebellious nature threaten to distract and put you off track, at least temporarily, and you may suffer deeply from unwarranted guilt or unresolved rage. The only thing to do, Sag, is deal with it, head on–don’t hide, and what you may find is that difficulties that seemed insurmountable dissolve in the face of your Willingness to see things as they are, not as they once were. Repudiating the past’s hold on you will go a long way toward making you free in the present, so don’t hesitate. Happy Birthday, Sagittarius, and good luck!

John William Waterhouse 'Echo and Narcissus' 1903 {{PD}}

John William Waterhouse ‘Echo and Narcissus’ 1903 {{PD}}

26 November actions and choices follow our highest values, and dealings with both money and relationships come from a position of personal strength and sureness in our unique worth—and yet what we do somehow comes from hurt, a kind of ‘making up for the past’ impulse that, for all our success, may leave us a little sad, and may subtly undermine our choices. We can avoid this ‘past echo’ effect if we can free the mind from any residual embarrassment over expressing our own uniqueness, and if we can avoid falling into the delusion that we are in complete, conscious control of our lives and the direction they take. (Mars parallel Vesta, Venus square Chiron, conjunct Ceres, and trine Uranus, Mercury sesquiquadrate Uranus, Neptune square the Sun-Earth axis)
1 AM PST of the 26th the Capricorn Moon trines Sedna. We may be able to successfully combine intuition, emotional perceptions, and instinct to firm up and make final some important choices or agreements to our advantage–do it if you can. 5 AM PST the Moon sextiles Saturn and catches Vesta at the midpoint. We may find ourselves swayed heavily toward supporting a reality that respects what we care about–choices made at this point, then, can’t help but be good ones. 7 AM PST the Moon sextiles Mercury; thoughts follow feelings, feelings follow thoughts. 10:30 AM PST the Moon quincunxes Black Moon Lilith in the 29th degree. We may meet sudden emotional crisis in the form of things too long ignored. Now that you know, don’t ignore them! Void begins at 11:11 AM PST; the Moon enters Aquarius at 11:23 AM PST. 6:30 PM PST the Moon trines Earth. Surroundings are likely to be hospitable–if they’re not, make them that way.

Fire Grand Trine Venus-Ceres/ Uranus/ Juno=Efforts that empower, show individual uniqueness and originality, and that draw on one’s natural roles or on Nature herself will be highly successful at this time. Pour your fire into a form that reflects you.

Today’s image is a large knife with an oddly bent tip. Does this imperfection ruin the knife? No, it may not matter at all, depending on how we want to use the knife. Don’t overemphasize in your own mind those imperfections we all have and are aware of–they don’t, and can’t, stop you from doing what you were made for.

You can get this delivered to your email each and every day for the next 7+ months for the price of a 6 month subscription! Subscribe now (no more subs will be accepted after 1 January 2015) and reserve your free copy of ‘We Are All Vessels: Vesta in the Natal Chart’! And have a great Wednesday!

No need to hide or feel bad, Scorpio, if you'll just tackle that darkness. Fleury-François Richard - Valentine of Milan Mourning her Husband, the Duke of Orléans 1801 {{PD}}

No need to hide or feel bad, Scorpio, if you’ll just tackle that darkness. Fleury-François Richard – Valentine of Milan Mourning her Husband, the Duke of Orléans 1801 {{PD}}

Normally there are no shadows bothering you, dear Scorpio–so why is there a darkness lurking near you now? There are issues, problems, disparities in your world that cannot be ignored any longer–and many of them contain the seed of some serious anger you are carrying right now. You may have felt ashamed of your potent feelings, hiding them and so avoiding dealing with their cause, but no more–you’ll discover that rather than feeling shame at your reactions, it’s time for you to speak out, to insist on the place, and the respect, that you’ve already earned. Not calling for this is the source of every difficulty you’ll meet this coming year, through to your next birthday, so the sooner you recognize the legitimacy of your claim, the sooner you can clear the air and take your rightful place. Happy Birthday, Scorpio, and good luck!

If you were born on the 21st but your Sun is in Sagittarius, please see the forecast for the 22nd. Thanks! And subscribe, while you’re at it!

Joining the group can be fun, Scorpio. Boki and Hekili (Kahekili Keeaumoku II) with two unidentified chiefs on the sloop Kamchatka 1818 by Mikhail Tikhanov.

Joining the group can be fun, Scorpio. Boki and Hekili (Kahekili Keeaumoku II) with two unidentified chiefs on the sloop Kamchatka 1818 by Mikhail Tikhanov.

You’ve got some big decisions to make this coming Solar year, through to your next birthday, dear Scorpio, decisions about being Yourself, about going your own way or reconciling yourself to a place in the group, about originality, about Self-respect, about matters you’ve been ignoring, about personal rage at the way you’ve been treated, about what you can do to break away from what ails you, and about how you can gain a complete sense of freedom that allows uncensored expression. That’s a lot to handle, but here are some pointers: don’t confuse just doing whatever you want whenever you want with freedom–they’re not the same; the key to gaining respect from others is to have respect for yourself–and don’t confuse this with reverence for yourself, a humorless stance that takes the Self very seriously; remember that the past is past; recall that you don’t lose who you are by cooperating or being part of the group; and know that things always go better when you face them directly, rather than putting them off and waiting for them to sneak up and catch you at a disadvantage. If you refuse to be wobbly and instead really apply yourself this year, Scorpio, you can make some amazing progress, and learn not just about who you really are, but successfully show others who you are, too. Happy Birthday, Scorpio, and good luck!

Charles West Cope 'A Night Alarm: The Advance!' 1871

Charles West Cope ‘A Night Alarm: The Advance!’ 1871

You’re entering what in some ways may be a deceptively quiet period, dear Scorpio; deceptive because once you emerge from the cottony-dark meditative quiet you’ll be forced to deal with all those issues you’ve been turning away from, just hoping they’ll disappear. Nobody blames you for not tackling them–and knowing they’re ahead needn’t disturb the contemplative state you can enter and enjoy for about 3/4 of the coming Solar year, through to your next birthday. This can be a highly productive time, as your internal world finds its spiritual center and organizes around it–or it could be a period when you wander, lost, hoping for rescue or an obvious signpost directing you . . . where? That’s really the crux of this: that you need to take this time to look inward, come to know yourself in the present, and then choose the course you want to follow when you re-enter (in a sense) the world, because when you do, some serious matters of relationship, rage, and Self-respect will surface–and you need to be ready. Happy Birthday, Scorpio, and good luck!
