We get a lot of mileage today out of concentrating on our highest priorities, some of which we can devote so much energy to specifically because we are able to compartmentalize, ignore, deny. Sometimes, there are good reasons to put some subjects or issues aside, to pretend, just for a while, that they don’t exist; this is one of those times. Why? you may wonder–the answer may be found in our need to be alert, to look out for accidents, surprises, revelations, or the revolutionary spirit itself. One or all of these may require our attention just so that we survive–and if our energy was taken up with housecleaning, with dealing with what we’ve already put off, anyway, we may not be quick enough, spry enough, or inspired enough to handle what appears quite suddenly.

Setting the table for your year ahead. Art by Peter Ilsted {{PD}}

For those who have the natal Sun at 01 Taurus. Check your natal chart for the correct Sun degree (you may want to read both the degree number and the one that follows, if you have minutes on your Sun position–that offers a more complete picture of your year ahead). This coming Solar year, Aries, will you be caught between Love and Instinct, or will it be more a matter of choosing between acting and just fantasizing? You’ll be presented with a number of dichotomies, and it will be up to you to follow the path that speaks most clearly to you–whether that’s your best alternative will depend entirely on how honest you are with yourself. Really, this year, through to your next birthday, Self-honesty should be your goal, along with understanding your true power position in life, and accepting the authority you already hold, that you may not fully embrace, yet. It’s a year that will determine the course of so much in your life–tread with care, and a hearty helping of Self-awareness.
