The AstroEssence for the 3rd: We may find ourselves in the midst of multiple tug-of-wars (or is it tugs-of-war?), with our own sensibilities seemingly coming down on BOTH sides of the conflict. Ambitions echo the past, dreams lead our efforts toward empowering ourselves, and relationships seem to present the most vexing challenges, as we reject the social sphere, those in authority, and our peers! What’s left? Our inspirations are real; hold tight to these and let them guide you. Know that what draws our attention contains the needed wisdom or shows us the ‘smart move’; and accept that choices and actions are going to feel as if they violate our standards, though inspection later should reassure us that they did no such thing (SN parallel Zeus, Neptune trine Juno, Mars qnx Vesta, Venus contra-parallel Jupiter, Chiron, and Ceres, and qnx Ceres, Sun parallel Pallas and sxt Black Moon Lilith)
Today’s word image is a crow. Crows, we’ve recently discovered, are very very smart birds. They recognize individual humans, and will even share knowledge of what kind of human that is (source of food, mean to birds, etc). In what non-verbal way have you received knowledge lately from the group, and what knowledge was it? Were you conscious of it, or did you just soak it in? How did you use that knowledge, and if you’re just becoming conscious of it now, how will you use it in future?
For those born with the Sun at 11 Virgo: pure and inspired creativity, especially that which is drawn from past experiences, is yours this year, as long as you do one thing: confront every issue you have avoided, denied, or that has enraged you. You can’t keep your upsets to yourself any longer, nor can you expect to create success if you continue to refuse to deal with issues. It’s that simple, and that complicated, all at once. Good luck, Virgo, and Happy Birthday!
For those born with the Sun at 12 Virgo: I can offer you only three things, but if you use/ understand them, you will have all you need to make your year a success. 1) who you are shapes your fate, nothing, and no one, else; 2) relating to others emotionally will build the bridges you need; and, 3) don’t hesitate to look into the abyss, to deal with what you’d rather not, and to express your rage/ outrage when it is warranted. Good luck, Virgo, and Happy Birthday!
