The AstroEssence: We may have difficulty dealing with the reality picture or the demands of the material world or authorities, and this would be rooted in a too-strong conviction that the past offers us the answers to the present. It does not; what does
tell us how to handle things are relationships, values, and/ or our financial state. All offer informational or fact-based standards by which to navigate–and that’s a really good thing, because our instincts are definitely on the blink (Mars nov SN and Semi-sq Saturn, Venus nov Hygeia, Mercury opp Sedna)
Today’s word image is the first lemon off my greenhouse lemon tree, ready for election night cocktails. Aside from any jokes (yes, we’ll all need alcohol to get through this!) its readiness said to me that it’s time to look at those smaller things we are providing to ourselves and note, however insignificant it seems, the added degree of Self-reliance, as well as gratitude for what could easily be overlooked or dismissed. Focus on small things not only leads to greater appreciation of what we have, it leads us toward awareness of what we can do, and so toward building much larger and more effective accomplishments.
Update! The actual lemon–and not one but two!
For those born with the Sun at 17 Scorpio: You’ve made some big changes of late, and now, brace yourself, because you’re going to experience the repercussions of going after your ambitions and desires, specifically through having to face all those things you may have ignored, denied, or avoided by going after your dreams. That sounds terrible, doesn’t it? Don’t worry, it’s really about removing those issues that may stand in your way of achieving–and dealing with them offers a kind of healing, one that opens the way to your ultimate success. Bonus: some of what you experience emotionally may belong not to you but to the Collective, so sort feelings before reacting to them. Good luck, Scorpio, and Happy Birthday!
