The AstroEssence: Getting our way hurts, or at least leaves us very uncomfortable–whoda thunk? It may be because, as we reach out for what we want, we do so in ways that are already defunct; that is, we try to gain through relationships and interactions, financial situations and value expressions, that are no longer valid, that expired and oops–we didn’t notice, or have time-traveled ourselves, and so forgotten how they evolved, crumbled, or just plain faded away. Don’t get me wrong–they work for obtaining what we want in the moment–but may taint the well, so to speak, as a result. Maybe funnel energy instead into reconsidering relationships and financial situations, and into thinking about what you really want in your life, because current conditions put a glaring spotlight on what’s in play that also contradicts values and/ or is unwise (Chiron sq Juno, Venus conj SN, Sun contra-parallel Vesta and semi-sq Pallas)
Today’s word image is a cup of coffee–but you don’t drink coffee. What’s being offered to you right now that you believe isn’t to your taste–or that you’ve actually sworn off of, for one reason or another? Consider that it may be time to try something new, to shake things up, and to realize that there’s no actual virtue in making hard and fast, but ultimately irrelevant, rules for living.
For those born with the Sun at 17 Capricorn: Was it you who transformed, or did your whole world just fall from beneath your feet? If the former, good for you, you’re on to your next stage of life, little butterfly–but if the latter, you have to triage your life during this Solar year, through to your next birthday, so that you can understand (and so permanently, emotionally release) why what happened happened. In either case, bringing forward with you what’s worthwhile from the past is important; so is recognizing that there’s only so much mulling to be done–then it’s time to accept and move on. Also, beware being too aggressive, or accepting to much interference from others–a balance is definitely needed. Good luck, Cappy, and Happy Birthday!
Have a great weekend, everyone!
