The AstroEssence: We act and choose against our own instincts–why? We are resisting reality; following ideals and going for dreams doesn’t seem to have paid off, and now we are feeling let down, betrayed, unsupported by our personal Universe. Let’s shake off that myopia and align our thinking with the facts: it’s not that reality has failed to serve us, it’s we who have failed to respond to the true state of what is. We must re-examine dreams to see their real worth, what they’ll actually cost us, and willingly modify them to fit our real-life circumstances; do that, and genuine progress won’t be far behind (Mars opp Sedna, Venus qnx Neptune, Sun contra-parallel Saturn)
Today’s Word image is soft-serve vanilla ice cream in one of those cones that taste like paper. Love this or loathe it, it’s supposed to be a treat. What in your life that’s supposed to be a reward doesn’t feel that way? Are you going along with something as a reward, when it’s no reward for you? Or what do you like that could be loads better by just upgrading the ingredients? If it’s supposed to be a positive, don’t just accept what’s handed to you–you should do everything you can to make it enjoyable.
Those born with the Sun at 29 Cancer are on the verge of discovering a new strength, a new purpose, or a new pleasure, and the coming Solar year, through to your next birthday, will bring this to light through some kind of material conflict or struggle. That isn’t necessarily bad; it only means you may have to work for it, or assert your right to it over the objections of others. The empowerment you receive by going for it will turn over a lot of old ground, uncover a secret or two, and definitely will re-make life as you know it. Good luck, and Happy Birthday, Cancer!
