The AstroEssence: Subtle undercurrents of ambition, lust, want, and the urge for dominion (a slightly different expression than a straight-for-power grab) will flow beneath the social, creative, and fact-based realities, today; be aware that every interaction is a statement, and believe every statement for the power need/ want it expresses. Look out for the ambitious, and Artists, look to Nature for inspiration (Jupiter parallel Zeus, Neptune semi-sq Ceres)
Today’s word image is a child’s drawing, of the child-artist and her best friend. Imagine the child-artist is you, right now–who would be in that picture with you, your crayon hands linked, a bright Sun shining down on you? How successfully do you nurture that inner child in the present? You’ll likely see how crucial the connection to this individual is, once you look at it in these terms.
For those born with the Sun at 25 Capricorn: You may feel like you’re flying blind this year, but don’t give up; this is an elaborate mechanism you’ve devised in order to bring those things hidden, denied, or that enrage to the surface to be handled, and it’s in the handling that you learn your greatest lesson: You have what you need to know deep inside, and what occurs this Solar year, through to your next birthday, will require you to both trust your own instincts and learn not to suppress or ignore input you don’t like. Now that doesn’t sound too hard, does it? Assets for the year include the way you will develop enhanced critical thinking, the way you will find spiritual sustenance, and, after a struggle, the way the creative urge will serve you. Good luck, Cappy, and Happy Birthday!
