The AstroEssence: in the light of the recent Full Moon, we honor our own power, we see how that over which we have dominion must be adjusted or changed, and we are able to visualize our own version of ‘perfect health’, and so implant a guideline within the unconscious; the mind is very receptive to positive input at this time, though conscious adjustment to anything too radical or unusual may be required. Visualization, spiritual practice (which is really life, isn’t it?), exploring our own inventiveness and originality, and efforts that honor our own responsibilities and our ability to affect our world are favored (Vesta trine Ceres, Neptune parallel Hygeia, Saturn qnx Vesta, Mercury opp Chiron and qnx Uranus)
Today’s word image is a stork wading in a river. As a child the only time I heard storks mentioned was with that puzzling idea that storks delivered babies in little slings, like takeout burritos; as an adult I saw them nesting at the tops of chimneys in the Netherlands, and suddenly the story that they could slip in and bring a baby made a little more sense. Is there something you find curious that might make a lot more sense if you knew its origins? And how do you sort that from something that has no explanation? If we approach everything in life as having a reason for being, no matter how obscure or nonsensical, then we in essence cast a vote for a Universe that not only makes sense but has reasons for being the way it is–which should put your mind at ease.
For those born with the Sun at 27 Leo: you may find yourself acting under an influence this year that is very difficult to pin down: you could insist on behaving in ways contradictory to what you know to be smart. The sense of unthinking rebellion, of push-back toward everything you’ve been led to believe was wise or practical, has its roots in the way you have recently consistently denied what your instincts have told you. Alienating yourself from your own inner knowing can only be remedied by trusting yourself once again–and that requires letting go of what or whomever you have substituted as guide. You can do it. Good luck, Leo, and Happy Birthday!
