The AstroEssence: We’ve been immersed in a great deal of healing energy for a few days now, and if you haven’t availed yourself of it then you’ve almost certainly found yourself, intentionally or not, lashing out, hyper-sensitive to some perceived hurt. The keyword here is ‘perceived’; all that sensitivity, that understanding of where to apply something soothing, unless directed at flesh or spirit in need of healing, sits on the psychic skin like a rash, irritating us until we reach our limit. Things we’ve been ignoring in relationship or finances are the most likely catalysts; awareness that our thinking is off, in terms of real-world perception, is vital to responding in the most effective way. To review: efforts toward healing, guided by values and instinct rather than circumstances, are the best way to handle this over-stimulating influence (Mars trine Chiron, Venus sq Black Moon Lilith and nov Vesta, Saturn contra-parallel Mercury and sesq the Sun, Sun sxt Sedna)
Today’s word image is two unripe apples plucked prematurely from the tree. This is an obvious and somewhat suggestive symbol of having ‘harvested’ something before it was ready (we’re far too quick to associate an apple with sin, aren’t we?) The number two implies cooperation–and are we ever ‘willing’ before we’re truly ‘ready’? What are you feeling impatient over? And is it too late to stop yourself from taking (or taking advantage of) something that really needs more time to develop?
For those born with the Sun at 25 Cancer: recent times have been busy, and the pace won’t slow anytime soon. There’s demand over the coming Solar year (through to your next birthday) for you to demonstrate your unique gifts and a requirement that you step up to mend a long-time rift or wound; don’t put this off, as it’s a vital part of both honing your instincts and honoring your values. Expect an emotional shift partway through the year that will make you more restrained, more contained. Happy Birthday, Cancer!
