‘The Dark Mountains’ By Photographer James Craig Annan 1904 {{PD}}

Our attention today may go directly to those things we see as ‘most dark’: destructive things, ones we’ve tried to ignore or deny the existence of, things forgotten but lingering at the edge of consciousness, things we fear, extremes, and those things that haunt us vividly in the middle of the night. Consciousness drags them into the light and dares us to stand up to them, and it feels like we’re alone, the only adult, or authority, or force, in the room. How to handle it? Only accept visions and expressions of power that vibe with your idea of who you are at a Soul level; remember values and measure all against them; and rely on trusted relationships, ones to which you are firmly dedicated. That should turn darker things into chances for Self-knowledge, and occasions to learn a little something about life, as well.

The table’s all set for a Happy Birthday. ‘Open Door on a Garden’ By Konstantin Somov 1934 {{PD}}

For those born with the Sun at 22 Cancer. 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 Cancer, I want to be the first to assure you that scary sh*t from last year is all behind you–but can anyone ever be sure? No, but it does look like at the very least it’s in abeyance, allowing you time to dedicate yourself to shaping exactly the future you hope for. Will this period of undistracted momentum last forever? Of course not, but it will last long enough that, if well played, you will be in a very different, and much more emotionally secure, place than you were last time things went south–and that will make all the difference. Too, you may notice a kind of contest between your emotional perceptions and your instinctual ones. You would do well to parse these influences carefully; I lean toward saying that your instincts are the ones to be followed and trusted. Good luck!
