Geez, what made everybody so mad? Mostly, it seems, it’s about facing various power structures and finding how really hard they are to topple, change, talk to, eliminate, make an impact on, overcome, or wrest power from, for our own use. Yesterday, and/ or our own thinking, set us up to think this would be easy, and it’s anything but. We may have to take a step back, for our own health and safety, and look for the payoffs that aren’t quite so power and reality focused–which sounds disappointing until you realize that our perceptions of things are what matter. Our upset at not achieving all we’d hoped in the blink of an eye must be put into perspective–that is, we must credit ourselves with all we do accomplish, and then use our agile minds to plan, because the reality is change happens in steps; only accidents and earthquakes happen without anticipation, and you don’t want to be in charge of one of those, do you?

For those born with the Sun at 28 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). Dear Gemini, your empowerment is on the agenda this solar year, through to your next birthday, but it’s only fair to warn you that the kind and shape of power you’ve longed for (and this applies even if all you want is dominion over yourself) is likely to come through crisis–that’s where you’ll prove your ingenuity, that you care, and that you are more than capable–and it will be rewarded. So, it won’t come to you the way you’ve dreamed of it happening, but it will come–and then you’ll need to make peace with how you got it, with your position, with your personal sense of authority, with your true reach, and there’ll be an inevitable reckoning of your abilities–all in preparation for the next shift. Big aids include the ability to think it and act on it simultaneously, and to bring creative notions into real-world forms adeptly. Good luck!
