The AstroEssence: We resist preoccupation with those things that linger in the shadows, that distress us and distract from what needs to be done; we instead rush headlong into the future–at least in our own minds, if not in the actions we pursue. Not having our minds on the present can signal inspired thinking that takes us forward, or inattentiveness that kills efforts on the vine. Relationships and finances take their most healthy forms–and that means that any ‘falling away’ we experience at this time is really the best course for us, and that unpleasantness or lack is meant to foster better approaches and methods in us–so one way or another, we benefit (Venus parallel Hygeia, Mercury semi-sq Black Moon Lilith and trine NN)
Today’s word image is a single page from a book. It flutters down from the book shelf, you read it and would like to know what book it comes from as it’s intriguing, but none of the books on the shelves match the page! This image reminded me of those memories that pop up and seem not to fit anything about your life–maybe it’s a way you behaved once, maybe it’s something that happened that seems like a dream now, so unlikely did the events play out, but whatever it is, it doesn’t have a place within who you are; instead it’s an outlier that can make us uncomfortable, as it hints at either unacknowledged facets within ourselves, or that life is much less predictable than we suppose. If you’ve had some kind of memory like this ‘visit’ you lately, welcome it, because it probably tells you about something, some quality or inclination, that lingers just below the surface, and that you might be smart to take a stand on before it influences things again.
For those born with the Sun at 17 Sagittarius: Opportunity and desire will serendipitously come together for you this coming Solar year, through to your next birthday–so what more do you need? An awareness both that time is passing, and that the unexpected could play a big role in what occurs after you take advantage of those chances to get what you want, and in being aware that the time frame for modifying and fine-tuning the Self is over–it’s time to work with what you’ve got, perfected or not. Good luck, Sagittarius, and Happy Birthday!
