The AstroEssence: Unreality, distortion, the imagined, the deceptive all permeate thinking, reasoning, and perception today–and yet, we’ll know something’s amiss, we’ll sense the fun-house version of reality we’re receiving, filtered through minds that are confused about the difference between fact and fiction. This may distract us from more conventionally productive efforts, but could also supply some amazing inspiration or a deeply moving spiritual experience (aside from that one we have all the time, of course) (Mercury sesquiquadrate and parallel Neptune, Sun semi-sq Saturn)
Today’s word image is a child’s piggy bank, from which the coins can only be extracted once it’s been shattered. What ‘treasure’, resource, talent, positive have you been storing away, saving up, hoarding, or accumulating that you now would be wise to access, even if it takes a ‘shattering’ change? It’s time.
For those born with the Sun at 28 Libra: You may be too concerned this coming year with the idea of ‘fate’, as if your free Will could be overpowered at any moment by the pre-planned, the Destined, or the inescapable. It would be a mistake to believe this, but the mere existence of the idea may cause you to react passively to challenges and obstacles. Though it’s true a proactive stance won’t really bring you what you want at this time, neither will complete abdication of Self-responsibility. You’ll need to compromise your expression, thinking of progress in terms of building blocks rather than sweeping accomplishments; but it is the time to frame goals for the future, and to dream so that you can incorporate your most inspired desires in your real-life direction. Good luck, Libra, and Happy Birthday!
