The thing we need to be aware of today is that the past created the now; if we remember that, we’ll avoid a lot of blaming, hand-wringing, or useless parsing of causes and origins that will inevitably lead us right back to the fact that what we chose and did in the past formed the present, absolutely. And, though it may sound crazy, we need to embrace the past, mistakes, foolishness, and all, for best results in the now. How does that work? Allow yourself to ‘Love What Was’, even if you hate it now, or even if you’re aware it did or does violate something you find sacred–there was a reason for it in your life, it made you who you are–how can you not love it? And ‘Love Yourself’, and especially those parts of yourself that you feel are tripping you up or interfering with smooth execution of plans–they are actually trying to tell you something, something important about what you really want, or who you really are. Be slow to act, and open your arms to all that created you, and you’ll end the day with one or more new and effective ways of seeing yourself and making your mark (Mars qnx SN and semi-sq Saturn, Venus trine SN, Merc trine Sedna, Sun sxt Juno, parallel Ceres, and sq Vesta)
