The AstroEssence: Empowerment, the true ability to affect one’s environment and one’s options, comes today from two things: accessing what worked or brought balance in the past, and a willingness to dive into what we’ve been ignoring or denying, in order to confront what’s dark, or what would change us, if it could. The thing is, though it’s both admirable and tempting to go head-long at issues, it might not be the wisest thing to do. Somehow using our current position to attack things we actually do need to address will cause us to both gain and lose in unanticipated ways. As long as we’re clear on that, we can go forward, forewarned that drawing on the past, and on power accumulated there, brings a mixed bag of results. Ideas are our friends–they are brewing for the Inferior Conjunction tomorrow, where they will plant a seed or two–but action based on these thoughts, which may take defiant or anti-establishment lines, is to be avoided, at least for now (Juno conj Black Moon Lilith and trine the SN, Pallas contra-parallel Juno and trine Hygeia, Mars sesq Ceres, Venus parallel Juno, square Pluto, and contra-parallel Pallas)

Today’s word image is the color white. What does that color mean to you? Purity, blankness, cold, sterility, freshness, options or choice (as in an unwritten-on piece of paper or an untouched canvas), or do you see it with an artistic eye, representing all colors? What comes to mind tells you what’s ‘coloring’ your current viewpoint ‘lens’.

For those born with the Sun at 19 Virgo: it’s a time for action–is there really any question about that?–but hesitation may arise from perceptions that implementing what you want, your Will, or taking that leadership position will seriously sidetrack current life direction, the very momentum of which you’ve worked so hard to create. What’s a Virgo to do? Think on it, sleep on it, mull it, whatever ‘it’ is that you want to do–by the time you again feel confident and ready to move forward, half of what you’re now considering will have resolved on its own, and the other half will be ripe for your touch. It’s all a matter of choice–making the right one could take a little time. Good luck, Virgo, and Happy Birthday!

Enjoy your Sunday!
