‘Mountainous Landscape’ By Albert Bierstadt 19th century {{PD}}

Our ideals or what we honor meets some sort of ‘immovable object’ today. This is something that forces us to acknowledge that what we find sacred may not be universally seen as such–or maybe it’s that we’re committed to something wholeheartedly and yet the reality picture is telling us it’s just not possible to go forward without modifying our commitment. We may feel we’re being told we not only can’t have what we want, that what we value is a worthless investment. The real issue may be a message we’re avoiding hearing, by occupying ourselves with what we’re currently being denied. We want opportunity, but we want it in the form we demand. The reality is this: we can have change, absolutely, we can have new outlets and ways to express, but our beliefs and our ideas about what constitutes the kind of change that offers opportunity must be adjusted to fit reality. In other words, there’s opportunity out there, we just aren’t seeing it because we have expectations about how it’s supposed to look.

If we’re smart we’ll let go of expectations and try to see things in a new way, or at least, try to see things free of our usual lenses and assumptions. We do even better if we’re able to see that beliefs are things we choose, not based on any objective fact but on an explanation that fits our world view at the time. Be willing to consider: there’s not just another way, there are many other ways.

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).
