The AstroEssence: Saturday’s the day we’ve got it going on, and Sunday’s the day when we meet (and reassess) the results of all those Saturday choices. Initially we’ll be impulsive, spontaneously inspired, and hooked in to instincts; at the same time we’ll be immersed in a perverse inclination to de-value what’s smart, argue with what we’ve learned from the past, disbelieve what issues we’ve ignored or denied are telling us, and engage in hurtful communications, in one form or another. By Sunday we try to sort it out, and there are a few guidelines: the reality picture just won’t reflect your actual values, so don’t try to make them match, and don’t take your cue from what’s in front of you–what you honor should be your guide; you can’t rely on what others tell you, or what you yourself hear or think–so just don’t count on your mind as reliable–but, and it’s a big one, if you can align thinking with what is indisputably the wise choice or option, things can work out a-okay (Saturday: Vesta sesq SN, Uranus contra-parallel Juno, Venus sq Pallas, Mercury parallel Chiron and contra-parallel Ceres, Earth qnx Black Moon Lilith and nov Sedna; Sunday: Saturn sesq Vesta, Mercury sesq and parallel Pallas)
Saturday’s word image is a drake, a male mallard duck, with his iridescent green head and neck, black and white neck rings, soft gray body and brown vest. He’s a beauty, especially next to the more modestly colored female–but there’s a good reason for her camouflage (protecting her babies) and a good reason for his flash (to attract the ladies). Sometimes we don’t realize that the flash or modesty we see in others is just natural to them, and that they have good reasons for putting themselves forward, or hanging out in the shadows–try not to judge them for it.
For those born with the Sun at 16 Libra: This year it may feel as if you are sneaking up on your ambitions and desires–and really, this is the time to do all the preparation, positioning, and networking necessary to put you in just the right spot–because sometime in the year following your next birthday, you will be handed the chance to have, attain, or accomplish exactly what you’re aiming for–and your job now is to get ready. Good luck, Libra, and Happy Birthday!
Sunday’s word image is a Commodore 64. Yes, an antique! We may encounter things when they’re brand-spankin’ new, and not realize that as time passes they are not just no longer current, they are so outdated that they can’t interact with the current scene. Look around for something in your world that needs updating, in spite of it still doing the job–it’s not a bad thing to improve functions and effectiveness, and relegate something rather creaky to fond memory–and that goes for personalities, goals, skills, and relationships, too.
For those born with the Sun at 17 Libra: You are your ambitions and desires this year, Libra, and you let them show through the personality. This can be very very good, if you have a winning way about you and have done the necessary prep to meet your goals, or could come across more like a crazed Cookie Monster, if you simply go after what you want without giving it much forethought. You can see which of those is better, as in more effective, right? Good luck, Libra, and Happy Birthday!
