The AstroEssence: Our confidence levels determine how adept we are at going after what we want today, and this is measured in two ways: how well we’ve reconciled our personal sense of injury with those wounds ‘approved’ by the social order (are we open about our hurt, is there shame surrounding it that makes us hide, do we feel acceptance of our injuries, perhaps through supportive foundations or groups, or do we feel no one is capable of understanding our precise wound?), and how closely connected to the ‘ideal’ (whatever that may be in your own mind) our steps to address or remedy our wounds have been. If we feel we’ve been effective at doing what we could to alleviate our pain (even if we still hold that pain), then we are likely to be highly aware of our own power within the life situation, and so wield it in the name of getting what we want/ deserve; if we’ve not, for one reason or another, been willing to see to our own health, we may find the power to affect things taken from our hands. We could call it a moment of living karma, and we could note that the degrees of successful deployment of our energy are relative, mostly to our own understanding of hurt and reward. We may be preoccupied in the moment, however, with our own actions and choices, with some of us following the dream, some allowing the ego to lead (or mislead), some allowing inspiration to flow through, and some taking creative action of significant proportions. The day holds a lot of potential; don’t be hard on yourself if you find at the end of it that you review and see many more layers to things than initially appeared (Juno sxt Zeus, Jupiter qnx Chiron, Mars conj Neptune and both sq Hygeia, Venus nov Pluto, Sun sesq Sedna)
For those born with the Sun at 10 Capricorn: Review of the past, of past accomplishments, and particularly of the things that may have kept us from doing or being is on the agenda–and it’s tremendously effective fuel to create present-day change. You are at the perfect point as an individual to use the intellect and your deep sense of understanding to transform the life; you have a clear idea of how you want to live and who you want to be, and you can make it happen. It may not be easy, but it will be immensely rewarding, especially in the way you can reinforce relationships, and all interactions based on love. Good luck, Cappy, and Happy Birthday!
