‘Breakfast II. The Artist’s Family’ By Gustav Wentzel 1885 {{PD}}

We have two basic choices today: take action, use the impulse that flows through us, because as long as the brain is engaged the outcome is smart and practical, or immerse yourself in Love or Money, and become acutely aware of exactly where it hurts! In either case, thinking isn’t aligned with values, and focuses a little too much on what we’ve been trying to ignore, so that a wee smidgen of guilt and a sense of being a bit lost may be the result–and since that will be so no matter what, if you choose action you’ll at the very least come out of it having done something wise, in spite of our detached and possibly distressing mental state.

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

For those with the Sun at 3 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). Difficult or trying circumstances this year, dear Aries, will inspire you; creativity will flow from frustrations, misunderstandings, imaginings, even deceptions. Of course, no one wants to have to wade through the fire if they don’t have to, but in your case, that might be the only way out. Consider that as you experience all the pain that issues around love or money have brought you, you also learn what your true priorities are, and that being kind and honest with your communications will prevent any issues in future. So, even though much of what happens will be less than fun, it will also foster a priceless new maturity and sophistication in you that will lift you and your expressions to a new, beneficial level. Good luck!
