The 10th sees Ceres enter Cancer and our thinking runs up against a brick wall; we become obsessed with having power over (that is, having control, or having a significant say in the action involving) what we care about. This may feel instinctual and so right, but what we need to do is stop and measure the validity of our own feelings, in terms of whether they entitle us to have our way in others’ lives. Do we have the right to oversee, command, require, or even give a nudge? Our values, and our sense of our own empowerment, are off the mark today. Let’s conclude with a quote from Carl Jung: “Where love rules, there is no will to power; and where power predominates, there love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other.”
