Today success depends on being both wise and totally ourselves–and the challenge may be not to use temper as a go-to when we find our uniqueness being undervalued or our priorities being dismissed. We (and everyone else) open our mouths and out comes a kind of x-ray of the unconscious. Stay awake; thinking and communications need to remain firmly grounded in our highest values. It’s the only way we’ll be able to navigate relationships and money, which will both require us to face matters ignored or denied, as well as our own anger–and we’re back to the caveat about indulging in temper. Put your energy behind and attention on the positive; for once this isn’t just a way to get through the day, it’s actually the most effective way to handle it (Uranus sxt Pallas, Mars sesq Uranus, Venus sesq Black Moon Lilith, Merc nov Vesta, qnx BML, sxt Sedna, Sun contra-parallel Chiron)
Today’s word image is a crow collecting beads and baubles and bringing them back to the nest. Small, dazzling things may stir a kind of acquisitiveness that is uncharacteristic of us (and these may be ideas, the promise of relationship or reward, or tantalizing experiences, as much as they may be actual things)–how we respond will determine whether we convert the impulse into something useful, or end up with a little bowl of sticks and grass full of shiny bits.
