That post title sounds like some sort of fishing terminology, doesn’t it? ‘Fisherman and Son in a Boat’ By Emilio Sánchez Perrier 1907 {{PD}}

The things that bother us about our relationships and/ or our finances are simply pointing to what we need to fix, do something about, pay attention to, or (here’s a novel approach) fight with, for, or against. What draws our attention is the way this Venusian subject violates our Highest Values, and action, defense, or making a choice is called for. Luckily, we have the pluck, energy, and Will to tackle it as we need to.

Because a single degree doesn’t fall evenly within each day, every so often I have to list more than one degree. If you’re ever looking and the degree you’re searching doesn’t fall on the day you expect it to, look to either the previous or following post.

Happy Solar Return to those born with the Sun at 08 Pisces! (See your birth chart for your Sun degree!) This coming year, visualization powers are strong, and you have the inner harmony to act and make what you see a reality. Reaching for what you ‘see’ is key, as your vision serves to stimulate all power you or others hold, and so make obvious who wants what, who can actually make things happen, who to take seriously (hint: this year, it may be you!) and who could be destructive, possibly without even realizing it. The more you actively use your energy, the more you’ll understand the power structure in your life, the more you’ll be able to command and transform, and so the more you’ll be in control of things, and your own talents and abilities, by your next birthday. And remember, exaggerating your emotions won’t have the effect you think it will–instead, use feelings to make solid contact with what you ‘know but don’t know’.

Happy Solar Return to those born with the Sun at 09 Pisces! (See your birth chart for your Sun degree!) This year, through to your next birthday, may feel like it’s all one big test of your autonomy, of how well you can stand on your own two feet–and yet it’s much more than that. If you look closely, you’ll see that you’re being offered a promotion, of sorts, one that puts you in charge of a distinct territory where you’ll call all the shots. Does that sound exciting? Then go for it–you’re more than ready. Does it sound a little scary? Don’t say no immediately–you may be surprised at how you’re equipped to handle more than you think you are. In any case, communications surrounding love and/ or money are key this year, defining one or both of these areas in significant ways, and offering support, some of it quite surprising.
