The AstroEssence: The Moon’s left idealizing, drifting, confusing Pisces, and moves through clear, first-person point-of-view Aries–and now our feelings, and our thrust toward the future, condense and take shape. We know just what kind of future we want to create, and we have a precise idea of how to empower ourselves, and of where real-world power (that is, the power that lies externally, and that can affect more than just ourselves) lies. Action, we realize, is itself power, as is choice, no matter how seemingly minor, and this fuels pursuit of ambitions even as it draws our attention to those matters that should no longer be ignored or denied, or toward those subjects that enrage us–all are in prime space not just to pull our notice, but to enable our efforts to bring equity and balance. It may seem like we’re just putting out the worst fires at this point, but in reality we are creating the future–and careful adherence to ‘the rules’, physics, the dictates of authority (even as we work to change them), and to what’s established or solidly reliable, all facilitate gain, with positive potential for diplomatic solutions, sudden insights, the creation of new and lasting relationships, and profit of all kinds. If we’re awake, this period shows us where we actually want to go–and illuminates the way–the rest is up to us (Uranus parallel NN, Mars sxt Juno and parallel Pluto, Venus enters Capricorn and nov Black Moon Lilith, Mercury semi-sq Juno and nov Zeus, Sun conj BML)
Today’s word image is this: a false wall in an old house is removed; beneath this, on the original wall, is a mural, a master artist’s piece. Renovation and re-styling, when done carefully, is a good thing, but did you long ago cover up something, walk away from something, repudiate or ignore something, that is actually one of your most important qualities, possessions, skills, talents, traits, or attitudes? Whatever it is, it’s been covered with something ordinary, in the name of ‘updating’–tear down the false barrier, and see what you’ve got.
For those born with the Sun at 19 Scorpio: Your deepest, darkest secrets, those things you’ve pushed down or denied, need to come to light this coming year, through to your next birthday–if they don’t you run the risk of having unconscious forces take over, and that allows them to orchestrate circumstances you just can’t ignore. Never fear, though: you have the perfect mindset to handle these matters, and, though there will be a few surprises (and those aren’t necessarily bad), you may get assistance from established relationships or resources, and from forward thinking groups or your own original ideas–and these can lead to much bigger rewards in the future. Good luck, Scorpio, and Happy Birthday!
