The AstroEssence: We may insist on a bit of psychic housecleaning today, urged on by thoughts of the future, and particularly thoughts of where our relationships and/ or financial situation are taking us, and also by those matters too long hidden, ignored, denied, or that enrage, and so must be addressed. We’ll be intent on sweeping out the corners, on ridding ourselves of illusions, on airing out all that’s been sequestered, forbidden, or that seems unjust–and we must be aware of and ready for the potential for this action to bring change to relationships and/or material matters and earning. There is also the matter of our being faced with exactly which dreams are feasible, and which must be let go. Whatever shifts occur, whether they appear so or not, will be done in the interests of what’s to come; we may not see it this way right now, but changes that happen will, eventually, be seen as having been in our own best interests (Venus sesq NN and sxt Black Moon Lilith, Sun-Earth axis sq Neptune)

Today’s word image is a pair of scissors where the blades just don’t meet effectively anymore. How many things are we holding on to that aren’t capable of ‘doing the job’ any longer? In other words, what in our lives just doesn’t ‘cut it’ at this point? This symbol offers hints as to where to begin that housecleaning.

For those born with the Sun at 9 Sagittarius: It looks like you’ve got your sh*t together, and it’s a good thing, as you meet a point of fate at some time this Solar year, through to your next birthday. In time you’ll recognize this as-yet undetermined event as a major life turning point–so keep that in mind as things go down. You may also be faced with either going after that Big Dream or letting it go, once and for all. None of this will be easy or completely pain-free, but what it will cost you in loss of fantasies and an uncomfortably clear look at the reality picture, will end up benefiting you in terms of your ability to apply critical thinking to making your dreams come true. Good luck, Sagittarius, and Happy Birthday!
