‘Bullfights- Banderillas with Firecrackers’ By Francisco de Goya 1923 {{PD}}

Ideas will be like firecrackers today, ones accidentally, spontaneously set alight–and though the creative energy that pours from it is not only valid, it’s highly empowering, those ideas may also be shocking, come out of left field, or could be radical, taking the imagination to new, previously not considered heights. That means that the most important thing we can do with these ideas is think them through, taking adequate time to examine potential implications, and to vet impact. We’ve got a strong creative impulse overall today, and one that operates free of our normal roles or constraints; the trick is to glean all the best from ideas and impulses that present, without blowing anything up.

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

For those born with the Sun at 18 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 year, dear Taurus, you’re a bit of a genius when it comes to ways of acting effectively, to empowering yourself on the current scene. This comes from taking your highest values and applying them to healing–and you may do this unconsciously, simply enjoying the results of this application. But we save the best for last. This Solar year, through to your next birthday, you also have a spectacular mandate: you can be a pure conduit for the creative, specifically so that it can be applied to ambition or desire fulfillment. So, one of your most important energy investments to make before the year gets started is to really think about what you want–because this year, you have the juice to make it happen. Good luck!
