The AstroEssence: the reality picture (and subsequently, our attention) is focused on matters of ‘health’ (in all its forms) and the way these influence realization of our goals, or shape our ambitions and desires. In accepting and then working with the way things are, we not only find a way forward, we see precisely where our strengths and our ability to influence lies–and we use it, embracing our own authority (no matter how circumscribed or tenuous) and thereby gaining, profiting, or furthering relationships (Perfecting today: Saturn sxt Hygeia, Venus trine Ceres, Mercury conjoined the NN, Sun sxt Zeus)
Today’s word image is a small float plane lands on a smooth lake. The thing that always strikes me about this kind of transportation is how specific it is–you can’t change your mind mid-flight and toot on over to an airport! In what way are you being very particular about moving forward, so much so that you may be limiting your potentials? Sometimes we must be very specific, because we already know exactly what it takes to ‘arrive’ at a highly specialized destination, but we may become overly specific in how we move forward without having a very specific goal in mind, and so could curtail possibilities and delay progress.
For those born with the Sun at 17 Leo: (Please check your natal chart to know whether you should read yesterday’s forecast, today’s, or tomorrow’s, according to the degree of your Sun) You may have realized some important or significant ambition or goal of late, and you may be wondering, now what? You may have an almost immediate emotional crisis to deal with (possibly involving aesthetic matters or the partner), and after that you’re called upon to act and/ or to choose–and this may occur in life areas where the choices conflict with your intentions. Take your time, sort it out, and don’t act reflexively or in anger–that definitely won’t get you where you want to go. Good luck, Leo, and Happy Birthday!
I’m considering offering reports on the upcoming September eclipses (no, the one in mid-August is not an eclipse, but a near miss) in two versions, one a succinct report that concentrates on the meaning for you (no astro-details), the other including the astro-details as they contact your natal chart, and this is very important: these reports only address the impact of the eclipse–the report does not exhaustively cover everything happening in your chart, it focuses on the set of events as they interact with your chart. The emphasis will be on you, and how these might impact you, and you need to be aware, this may or may not address current issues you think are important–often an eclipse set lets you know where things are really happening, or where they’re ‘warming up’, as well as what areas may undergo drastic change, a ‘wipeout’, rather than answering matters that grab your attention currently–though of course, sometimes they do. The briefer report that offers the meaning and life areas impacted for you, based on the eclipse’s contact to your natal chart, will be $35 and run 1-2 single-spaced PDF pages, while the more detailed will run 2-3+ single-spaced pages at $50. Both are delivered by email as soon as possible. I’ll let you know right here if I decide to go forward–and those who’ve already contacted me and asked about this will be first in line, if I decide to offer them. Thanks to all who’ve inquired!
