‘African Riddle’ by John Mainga, Photo by Todd Schaffer CC BY-SA 3.0

Here are our guidelines, and they will bedevil us: what’s beautiful, attractive, of worth, supports our health and the overall balance of our lives, but in some way to indulge in it right now is unwise, impractical, or may require skills we don’t have. It’s like a riddle with no right answer, as for each individual it will fit in some very particular way their life scenario at present. We may be able to get more specific by looking at what Venus rules in the natal chart, and/ or what subjects are covered by the House it’s currently transiting. These energies or subjects should have at least some involvement in the puzzle we face today. Another hint: having just undergone a Lunar eclipse, the feeling experience of that event may have a great deal to do with, may even have directly precipitated, the dynamic of beautiful/ healthy vs. unwise.

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 25 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, this solar year, through to your next birthday, your instincts involving material matters will be spot on–it’s the emotional ones that may be unclear to you. And that’s okay–you don’t need to make any pronouncements about your feelings right now, no matter how it seems–it’s much more important for you to get the material landscape of your life into good working order, so that it supports your needs and your wants. It’s vitally important that you trust those instincts in all areas–your health may depend on it–and acknowledging that your mind temporarily isn’t as sharp or receptive as it needs to be will only work in your favor, steering your efforts in their most effective direction. Good luck!
