The AstroEssence: It’s a contrary day where we achieve our ends in round about or backward ways. We do this by: finding the empowerment in a hurtful situation or healing some facet of our effectiveness to 100%; ignoring nature, authorities, or the need to negotiate and in doing so finding something of value we normally would see as contrary to our standards; and noticing how exaggeration tells us exactly what the real message is. Imagination doesn’t serve us right now–it may only confuse communications and distort creative ideas–but if we draw our inspiration from solid, material matters, things that fill our environment or that we can hold in our hands, we’ll find a kind of genius to what they inspire in us (Chiron trine Juno and contra-parallel Ceres, Venus contra-parallel Vesta, Mercury parallel Jupiter and qnx Neptune, Earth nov Neptune)
Today’s word image is something blue. Let the color be a marker that draws attention back to the present, and tunes awareness to that moment, again and again throughout the day.
For those born with the Sun at 20 Libra: Healing is on this year’s agenda, Libra, but only if you are willing to modify your own attitude enough to forgive. It’s your own rebellious nature that’s kept things from becoming whole again, and it’s time you see that, rather than thinking it’s the stubbornness of others keeping you apart. This healing thing is such a big deal, in fact, that opening yourself to this will bring a sensitivity, emotional creativity, and spiritual attunement beyond anything you’ve ever expected. Good luck, Libra, and Happy Birthday!
