The AstroEssence: Our ambitions drive everything right now; we have innovative, unique, and inspiring thoughts about our desires, wants, and goals, and we see what’s impractical or unwise about the form our current aims take, and so can modify our intended direction and our efforts. Our quest to express our individuality pushes us forward, and we’re heartened both by seeing how and why things didn’t work in the past, and how we and our ambitions can fit into the social fabric now. Optimism is pervasive, but take care not to bite off more than you can handle (Pallas sesq Zeus, and Merc nov Zeus and parallel Uranus, Sun nov Jupiter and qnx the SN)
Today’s word image is unfinished knitting. What have we begun to knit together, pulling in different threads to make a coherent and cooperative whole, that we’ve lately put aside, neglected, or given up on? Whatever the project is, remind yourself of what you intended at the time, then look at things in the light of now–that’s the only way to know if it’s right to pick it up and finish, or to unravel things, and put the energy and materials to a better use.
For those born with the Sun at 13 Leo: Though most of the year goes smoothly, you are actually headed for great change; the question is, will this be forced upon you, or will you see the writing on the wall, and modify your course so that what you’re required to do fits into what you want, anyway? You prepare best by being flexible, and at the same time being as Self-responsible and Self-aware as possible; avoid being too critical of yourself or others, as this is especially likely at those points when emotions overcome you. Good luck, Leo, and Happy Birthday!
Please note that currently the Sun is reaching a new degree later and later in the day, Pacific time; it’s only by looking at your timed birth chart that you can be sure whether the degree listed for your birthday is correct for you, or whether you should read the day before or after.
Thank you, Readers!
