I’m asking you to nurture something without knowing what it is–will you do it? Mary Cassatt ‘The Young Mother (Mother Berthe holding her baby)’ c. 1900 {{PD}}

Though we have the urge and ability to reach out, and we have a clear picture of the past, what we really need to do is think about it. I mean that in the largest sense: sit back, close mouth, ruminate, not on a specific problem or goal, but in a way we might characterize as ‘mindless’–that is, a meditative state that is centered in the mind but not dependent on its functions. We aren’t thinking about anything; and in doing so, we include everything. That allows us to create a fertile mental space for the gestation of ideas–but be prepared, we won’t know just what those are. This requires a sort of faith in the unconscious, or in the Universe, to sift through relevant material and plant the right ‘seed’. We’ll know what it is come 23 March–until then, we trust (Ceres sq Sedna, Vesta contra-parallel Pallas, Mercury trine Jupiter, semi-sq Neptune, trine NN, and meeting the Sun in Inferior Conjunction, Sun and Merc trine Sedna)
