Is it rage that powers our communications, now that the facts so clearly align with our upset, or is it that destructive thinking is in tandem with a belief that lashing out is the only way to break free, to expand? Whatever it is, we may be tempted to stick with our beliefs, priorities, and those things we honor, even as it’s clear that isn’t wise–and temperament, and the sense that we are right to indulge it, is a real problem. The issue may be that we don’t see the worth in acknowledging all that doesn’t work, that we’ve been in denial of, and how doing this will allow us to access our personal authority and ‘natural’ power. Facing what we’ve ignored will bring reward, particularly healing, and will set our minds in the direction of recognizing new opportunities–all possible, as long as we don’t let temper run the show.

For those born with the Sun at 12 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). Your personal relationship to power, and to any natural roles you hold (father, mother, sibling, child, positions of responsibility or in relationship to Nature itself), dear Taurus, may find its groove this year, through to your next birthday. Truly coming to understand your most personal powers in relation to others is vital to moving forward–no more hazy ideas of who you are and what your domain in life actually is–and once sorted out things can move very quickly. Early in this Solar year you may face a kind of emotional deficit, when you may not have the energy to spare to really feel (or so it seems), and you may be forced to deal with matters you’ve shunted to the side, or that you may be in denial about–but again, all for the good, clearing the decks for the revelations that are bound to come around your power position in life. Good luck!
Watching AG Barr answer questions in the Senate hearing today (May 1, Wed.) tests my ability to keep an open mind, calmly. I do feel emotional in a way that can blind my reason. I am very tired of people “spinning” actions to meet their needs regardless of its relation to agreed upon truth. It’s like calling cookies “crackers” when a child defends a predinner snack. Lots of bum arguments.
Agreed, Donna: spin is exhausting. I try to let it roll off me and stay concentrated on the facts–but it ain’t easy. One thing I have to remind myself of is that just because someone says something doesn’t make it true, nor does it mean others are necessarily fooled. I see it as a willingness thing: are you willing to go along with the lie? You and I clearly are not. When I’m feeling highly emotional I sometimes carve out a space and time to be entirely alone, without any input other than maybe music or just the sounds of the outdoors. It really helps–maybe you have a similar ritual you could apply. Sending a big hug!

Yes, I turn it off, meditate and relax. To back up allows me to recenter. Sometimes a “sleep on it” remedy is best. Having been gaslighted for a while has taught me to reconsider.
I adore the sleep on it method–somehow all the proportions change overnight!
