Go with the spontaneous and original today–those things spring from the depths of wisdom, or at least from ingrained practicality that finds its best expression–and don’t be afraid to plan modifications to the ambitions, because you’ll have some good, out-of-the-ordinary ideas today–just wait until Merc direct to implement. Clues for success: get rid of any outdated or otherwise harmful ‘standards’–they’re helping exactly nothing–and look for the treasure in the wound. With that last, a gentle appreciation works better than active digging.

‘Basket of Cherries’ By Félix Vallotton 1921 {{PD}}

Today’s word image is fruit. Specifically, I’ve recently had some very negative reactions from others when I turn down offered fruit. They behave as if it’s a moral failing. Do I bother to tell them that some fruit makes me itchy and miserable, while other kinds can send me to the hospital? Sometimes, but it doesn’t seem to make any difference–when I do say why, they clearly think I’m lying. First of all, why does anyone give a rat’s ass if I eat their fruit or not? That’s just more fruit for them, right? Second, I’m not trying to be rude, I’m trying not to have a breathing emergency–so in what Universe is looking out for my own well-being offensive? This little rant is all in service to the question, Are you judging someone without either knowing the whole story, or perhaps judging them and not believing what they tell you? And if you are, you need to ask yourself, how do you know you’re right?

For those born with the Sun at 29 Pisces (check your natal chart for your Sun degree!) You’ve got some down time ahead of you, time to contemplate, to consider. Among other things, you might think about what areas of your life you’d like to heal, really, thoroughly heal, so that they function perfectly–and consider also where you might need to shake things up. When things start moving again (1-3 months post birthday) you’ll need to be ready, so having a short ‘to-do’ list will be invaluable in setting you off in the right direction. The one thing not to disturb would be emotional issues; they’ll get a fresh start, too, but that can only happen with the passage of time. When the moment comes you’ll be offered a complete ‘vision’ via the intuition. Listen to it in reference to the future of one or more relationships–it won’t steer you wrong.
