What bothers us in relationships or finances at this time isn’t readily apparent; it’s seated in matters we may have already forgotten, in what we’ve ignored or denied, or in what so enraged us we had to turn away–but now we’ll be thinking about that past, almost obsessively, and how it’s affected the reality picture. There’ll be some interesting results from all this; here’s how to approach things: ignore the power picture, especially how it seems to be playing out or shifting–it’s not something you can change, and may not even be relevant for your purposes; accept that much of what you’re moved to do today is exceptional, whether there’s a genius idea behind it or just the purest of action-urge intents, and that no matter what drives it, it’s likely a very smart thing to do; be willing to adjust ambitions, goals, and desires to the ‘new reality’ you’re perceiving; and quit picking at your psychic scabs! Let them heal.

‘Sudden Shower, Newbury Marshes’ By Martin Johnson Heade c1870 {{PD}}

Today’s word image is the old phrase, “When it rains, it pours.” In what area of your life have you had one thing after another, an inundation of something that may be a bounty, or may be a mountain of issues, one after the other? Has yours been an embarrassment of riches, or a cascade of problems? Or has it been more subtle than that? For me it’s been a series of what seem like bad events, that have actually been blessings in disguise. I believe that the Universe is always working in our favor, and that if we take the time to look, we’ll see the bullet we dodged by not getting what we wanted, and another opportunity presented, that suits us much better.

For those born with the Sun at 26 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). Dear Taurus, This year you may find that you are closer to accepting and incorporating into the psyche your instinctive knowledge and intuitive perceptions more completely than ever before. It’s a threshold moment, stretched out over the year between this birthday and the next, and as such, may hold a number of world-altering surprises. Certainly, what occurs this coming year will connect you more strongly to your life purpose, your reason for being here, and that alone will change the direction of your life, as you fine-tune your way forward. Expect to feel lost, and even lonely, now and then, as changes to honor your path will inevitably mean you leave some things and people along the way. But, the result will be personal empowerment of a higher order, rooted in what you genuinely care about. Good luck!
