Vincent van Gogh – ‘Starry Night Over the Rhone’ 1887 {{PD}}

Today we are challenged, one way or another, to assess our desires: how healthy are they? how empowering? how close to our ideals? how wise? We may inherently reject the need for change, or those inevitable developments we can do nothing about–but, we would be wise to embrace, if not the actual change, then the need for it, along with that need to look again at what and where we are. Change that follows guidelines of values and honors what we truly care about is vital to our well-being; so is being willing to commit resources to promoting health and nurturing autonomy. Thoughts are confusing, and what’s wise isn’t necessarily clear (though it certainly feels like it should be!) Be willing to question yourself, your aims, and to re-evaluate them in terms of what matters–this is the only approach that will truly work (Uranus sxt Vesta, Venus sxt Hygeia, sq Juno, and contra-parallel Pluto, Merc sesq Neptune, Sun sesq Pallas)

Today’s word image is a paper cup of water. Water is Life, the material of baptism, something we can’t live without but will die from if we become immersed in for long. This symbol may be a signal to appreciate the basics, the very elements that make up our world, and to respect them, and the way they support our more complex Being, making possible a life beyond mere survival. This might also be an invitation to ‘contain emotion’ in some way that allows us to ‘take it in’, to use it and make it part of ourselves, to make it a supportive component, rather than being overcome by it.

Moon in Libra, then Scorpio (a Water sign, at 8:52 PM PDT), applies to our Water imagery; if you’re so inclined, you can support clean water for all here, or here (both check out through Charity Navigator)

Enjoy your Tuesday!
