The 26th: . . . how the powerful have affected us. Though initially we may ponder how authorities and those who hold power have helped and hindered us, including how much they’ve wounded us and limited our options, but we progress fairly quickly to considering how uniquely we’ve responded to these pressures, and how they have shaped who we are today. This is a highly positive experience that involves, consciously or not, cataloguing our attributes, talents, and the resiliency of the spirit–and has the benefit of showing us precisely how to shape our efforts and power expressions so that they both pay off handsomely and take us in the direction we want to go (NN nov Zeus, Venus nov Juno, Merc trine Uranus and Ceres, and sq Chiron, Sun parallel Hygeia)

Today’s word image is a snake. Look for it to draw your attention to sychronicities, to deja vu experiences, to moments when it’s vital you be alert to what’s happening at that time. It doesn’t necessarily signify danger, but rather an opportunity for ‘knowing’.

For those born with the Sun at 5 Sagittarius: Is it that you’re solidly grounded in your values and priorities, and so ready to take on a new and enhanced status, or that you need to get your footing with how you feel about what really matters, so that you can determine just what status you’re really seeking? Only you know which is your current state; be prepared for your most striking characteristic this year, through to your next birthday, no matter which state you’re in, to be a mainly intellectual stance, one of spontaneity, unreliability, forward-thinking, but possibly having difficulty connecting with others. This year is likely, probably below a conscious level, to rearrange everything in your life. Good luck, Sagittarius, and Happy Birthday!

The 27th: . . . ourselves and what we need. We have a firm grasp on our values and a clear idea of what needs to change or be eliminated, even as we indulge in our most erratic or original behaviors. We need to gain from our ambitions; this is a need arising from an even deeper need to know that our choices have been wise and/ or practical. This may cause some distress as we wrestle with ourselves and our environments, trying to answer our own questions. We should adjust what we find to fit what we know to be smart–and we may be wise to make peace with ‘the group’, as well (Venus sq Zeus, Merc sxt Pallas, the Sun sesq Uranus, trine Vesta, and nov Pluto)

Today’s word image is toast. Wow! Something’s done for, colloquially speaking. Make sure you see what needs to end, what’s truly finished, so that you can get out in front of it, or at least gain a little distance from the conflagration.

For those born with the Sun at 6 Sagittarius: You are currently adjusting your ideas and expression of your own power–and it’s not easy. The inclination is to be both much more solitary, and much more headstrong, than you really need to, to get your point across. Just remember, you’re not an island, even when you achieve your optimum level of autonomy, so make an effort to connect with others, especially in those times when it seems your feelings are hidden from everyone, even yourself. Good luck, Sagittarius, and Happy Birthday!

The 28th: . . . aligning our efforts with reality. We recognize that at least some of those impulses we classify as ‘instincts’ are instead conditioned responses that are, at the very least, unhealthy. Our focus today is on respecting reality, and making our own efforts work with, rather than against, what is. We’re more than willing to sacrifice what must be eliminated, and change what needs change, in the hope of getting a grip on our own power within the life situation–and it works, as long as we keep a steady eye on our desired destination (Hygeia opp Sedna, Chiron sesq Vesta, Sun parallel Saturn and Pluto, and sesq Ceres, this latter aspect forming a Fist of God when we fill in with the NN)

Today’s word image is a glass of warm saké. Relax. All is as it should be–and if you feel you can point to exactly what’s wrong, that could be a sign of unbridled hubris, assessing your judgment as superior to the wisdom of the Universe. Not doing so is the definition of ‘humility’.

For those born with the Sun at 7 Sagittarius: You are fully empowered to do as you please, this year through to your next birthday, but one thing you need to understand is that this doesn’t obligate others to go along with what you want. You must draw a fine line between fully enjoying your status and alienating others with your demands. It’s especially important that you tread with care at this time as your feelings will not be apparent to yourself or others, and that means you could end up regretting a choice or two once you regain contact with your emotional sensibilities. Matters of the House in the natal chart that holds Cancer could be the source of revelations. Good luck, Sagittarius, and Happy Birthday!
