Today, as Pallas enters Virgo, we find wisdom in the details, that critical thinking is smart thinking (especially if it’s divorced from our fondnesses and expectations of reward, as that’s the only way to see and assess things objectively), and that honoring what we care about will make everything else fall into place. The one thing we might need to watch for is that plenty of other things (prejudices, fears, the desire to punish or reject) might be masquerading as instinct, and so steer us seriously off course. It’s a day to pay attention, ground perceptions in facts, be as accountable as possible, and never forget who and what you care about. (Venus sxt Vesta, Merc contra-parallel Venus and sq Sedna)
