That may be the choice for us: create something of our own, or burn what already exists to the ground; give the impulse boundaries and shape, or restrain nothing, contain nothing. It can be argued that in order to create one must remove something to make room, whether that’s in a physical or a psychic sense, but the reality is that there is always a place for something created, just as we can make a void without automatically filling it. This may also play out as the modern and new v. the ideal and imagined, or as the individual v. the Collective–but in any form, we will be required to choose a side–there’s no integrating the two forces at work here (Uranus contra-parallel Neptune)
Or is it a showdown between goddesses? We may merely witness this, or be right in the thick of things, a participant wielding all the power of Love or Money (Venus) or one who feels status and position are what count, a ‘who you know’ stance (Juno). It’s a stand-off over some very important factors, so don’t be tempted to put this disagreement down to temper or irrationality–these two ladies know something that seriously affects the future is being decided here. No matter what this argument dresses up as (and no matter what the tension seems to be about on the surface) this decides something about valuables and power–it may even establish authority over a domain or subject–so give it your sensitized and oh-so-gentle attention. Hint on how to handle it: the party fixed on status and position may become ruthless or vindictive if thwarted (and may wield the ‘Truth’ as a weapon), while the party wielding Love or Money may think a ‘consolation prize’ will do the trick–it will not (Venus opp Juno, Venus sesq NN)
Will this be easy? Probably not, though it may take nothing more than a willingness to adjust where we put our attention in order to see the situation clearly. What happens today will affect the reality picture, and could cause modification to familiar and already-in-place structures, rules, boundaries, or to whom we consider an authority (Sun qnx Saturn)

Today’s word image: you’re sitting in a car, in the driver’s seat; you look in the rear view mirror. What do you see? This is something you need to give your attention to, before you put it behind you.
