‘La Primavera’ (Spring) By Walter T. Crane 1883 {{PD}}

What’s smart today is whatever fosters your own authority and power (and by power and authority I mean those areas where you take full, and I mean full, responsibility–not the ones where you like to think you do, but those where you carry the entire load–sometimes it’s a fine line, but you know, right?) From this comes perceptive thinking that builds a positive future and lets us know through our own instincts and what we ‘know but don’t know’ what will be worthy, payoff, bring rewards, or gather love. It’s a choice, really, between being our ‘best Self’ (even if we aren’t really ‘feelin’ it’ or if we balk at faking it–go ahead, the attitude will ‘fit’ in no time!) or succumbing to those troublesome qualities that cause chaos (rebellion, erraticism, hypochondria, pessimism, and a refusal to cooperate or ‘be there’ for others, comes to mind). Eyes on your own autonomy, plus the vetting of original impulses and ideas against one’s Highest Values, guarantees a positive outcome.

Happy Solar Return to those born with the Sun at 07 Pisces! (See your birth chart for your Sun degree!)The energy, Willpower, and focus available to you this year is outstanding, and is best used in a disciplined way that is mindful of material consequences. It’s not a time for pushing forward, but for moving in a considered way–and that may, on occasion, be hard to do. You may find some of your biggest challenges around the need to test and discard outmoded ideas regarding personal power; you need to take a good look at who you are, and what territory is really yours, and ask yourself, Is this where I want to put my energy? An honest answer brings emotional illumination and good intuitive guidance.
