Today reality itself has the drawing power of a drain, and our choices are: circle around it and go down by disrespecting our own values and by struggling to keep the future at bay (good luck with that!), or embrace that what you once thought sacred needs review and revision. It may seem sacrilegious, but even values must change as experience accumulates, morphing perceptions, and so our beliefs. The future is foreseeable, if we are willing to squint and adjust; this foresight can give us the power and judgement to affect real-world events in smart, even genius, ways. Take advantage of this to make your reality at least a little more as you’d like it to be (Pluto semi-sq Vesta, Saturn nov Ceres, Sun qnx NN and nov Saturn)

Happy Solar Return to those born with the Sun at 26 Aquarius! (this year roughly in effect late afternoon Pacific time of the 14th through late afternoon of the 15th–see your birth chart for your Sun degree!) Your instincts and sense of inner knowing are both your bête noire and your saving grace in the year ahead. If you can ignore that shadow right behind you, ignore that the past still lingers like a bad taste, and concentrate on willingly adjusting your Path so that the future you’re heading toward matches all the positives you sense it can be, you can make this year one of the most fortuitous and productive you’ve ever had–and you’ll end up going very much in the right direction, surrounded by what you need in the present, as a bonus.
