The AstroEssence: Relationships challenge us, specifically over values or the way we feel, and both interactions and money matters excavate areas of feeling and intent we’ve long thought set in stone. Thoughts strive for the ‘healthy’ approach, whatever that means to the individual, but communications and our own reasoning processes repeatedly point out our less-than-positive habits and tendencies; there’s no glossing things over and ignoring the ugly parts, the potential for damage, or the dangers, which shimmer vividly before us as we light the cigarette or run toward the cliff wearing our homemade parachute. Tips for handling what comes at us: value change–that is, find the rewards in it; accept that all relationships have a dark side, and that even a dream job or earning opportunity asks us to exchange a little of our power in order to skirt ‘death’ (think symbolically); and know that all of us are trying to purge our minds and concentrate on what’s positive, what thoughts and ideas will build us up–but in purging, all that dross has to go somewhere, so step carefully (Venus qnx Pluto, Mercury semi-sq Hygeia)

Derpy_bunny_graffitiToday‘s word image is a hungry rabbit with very big teeth! Despite the cartoon-y nature of the image, what we’re seeing is something normally harmless that could take quite a bite out of us if motivated. Temperaments fluctuate, dispositions morph and change; watch for the unexpected, aggressive ‘hunger’ from a quarter that’s normally passive, or more often seen as victim than aggressor. (I promise you, I actually write the word image before I go look for an accompanying pic–sometimes it just works out too well!)

For those born with the Sun at 02 Leo:
Your year may get off to a fiery start, but soon you enjoy internal emotional harmony, which may be your biggest asset, now through to your next birthday. This kind of agreement within yourself can propel you with unusual speed and precision toward your goals, so aim carefully, as you’re likely to find yourself speeding in that direction. What’s ahead? Taking the power, status, and reach you’ve achieved (no matter how major or minor you may see this as) and doing the smart thing with it, the healing thing, the healthy thing. Good luck, Leo, and Happy Birthday!
