‘Self-portrait by Anna Dorothea Therbusch-Lisiewska’ 1777 {{PD}}

Speaking as an empowered individual is the only way to go, today. The reality picture is crystal clear, and as such may appear daunting or immovable, but this is a kind of illusion we suffer at points when our perceptions are exceptionally sharp: we see obstacles, problems, or denials as having a deceptively solid character–solid now, solid in perpetuity. But that’s not so, and an active awareness of this is necessary so that decision-making isn’t done through a fatalistic lens. Anima-tinged power struggles (read in ‘passive-aggressive’ here, if you like) may also be on the menu, and we may see Money or Love struggle (perhaps unnecessarily) with the Powers-That-Be. Stay calm, use the clarity of perception available to your advantage, and remind yourself of the transitory nature of all things–a good thing to remember, when dealing with the now and planning for the future.

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

For those born with the Sun at 21 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–together these offer a more complete picture of your year ahead). It all may turn for you this year, dear Taurus, on a series of what seem like random fortunate (and unfortunate) events. This will likely feel scary and chaotic to your security and surety loving Soul, but I assure you, it’s all multi-purpose: to bring you opportunities you would otherwise not have enjoyed, to create a more amenable reality picture for you, and to put you in the path of the aforementioned random events, as these will be instrumental in shaping your future. Try to relax and enjoy what will likely feel very uncertain–in the end, it’s all got a very positive purpose, as the Universe works to support all that’s best for you. Good luck!
