The ideas are golden, clear and crisp, and very exciting–but somehow, if we were to materialize them just as we are imagining, they would conflict with our ambitions (or at least, the goals we’ve set) and undermine our personal authority. That’s no fun. We prevent Self-sabotage and get our ideas on the map in three ways: we don’t do anything that chips away at our health: physical, spiritual, financial, emotional; we accept reality, and the current authorities, even if they are wrong and we don’t like them, because we don’t have to like them to see What Is; and, we can use the social sphere as a handy measure: what they revere, we reject, what they say we can’t do (in the ‘you’ll never succeed’ sense), we see the possibilities and see how we can pursue the goal or solve the problem. We won’t change the world today, but we’re building the structures, mechanisms, and alliances that will.

Today’s word image is a beautiful, full lavender plant that curls in upon itself–is it dead, you wonder?–but that then unfurls as soon as it’s planted. This is about understanding how important the right environment is, and it’s also about not being upset with ourselves if we’re not in full bloom–we just aren’t at the right spot, we haven’t created the optimum environment, yet. Look to your Earth in the natal chart (it’s always, always, always located directly opposite the Sun) for clues as to what environment you need to help you become the fullest, highest, and best expression of who you are.
For those born with the Sun at 25 Gemini. 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). Your strongest ally this solar year, through to your next birthday, dear Gemini, may be your own very clear sense of what’s right, your instinctual knowledge, and your willingness to call out destruction and even evil for what it is. Accepting that ability in yourself makes your way forward evident, and consistently gives you both the power to change things and opens up choice, no matter the circumstances. In some sense this may be a ‘heavy’ year, but it’s also an empowering one, and could lead to bringing some ideals to reality, and to some truly creative, imaginative, and inspired actions and thinking. Good luck!
