25 January our own Willfulness can cause problems, and erratic behavior by ourselves or others in relationships or with money creates negative changes to our life direction. It’s good to know that difficulties are seated in imprudent action, rather than in anything we can’t prevent—the odd thing is, we have a clear picture of the current reality, and our thoughts and plans are centered on what we value and care about—so why does doing something, anything, seem to go so wrong? Temper and irresponsibility play their parts; so does Merc retro, which means that, though we think clearly, succinctly, and plan successfully, we can’t adequately convey that, nor are we suited to going forward in any way with implementing these thoughts. Take note of thoughts and plans, for they can be very informative and useful later, but save taking action for another day. (Perfecting today: Mars quincunx Juno, Venus semi-square Uranus and sesquiquadrate the North Node, Mercury parallel Venus, Sun parallel Saturn)
Today’s image is a trapeze artist, blindfolded. Of course, that makes sailing from one bar to the other that much tougher–but presumably, those who engage in trapeze work are so familiar with what they must do, that their bodies can carry out the right moves at the right time, without too much conscious interference. What are you being called to do that seems a little scary, a little tricky, but that if you allow sense and muscle memory to do their thing, it will go very well?
