Today’s aspects (Pallas square the Nodal axis, Venus trine Neptune and square Zeus, and Mercury trine Ceres and sesquiquadrate Jupiter) for me bring to mind the song ‘Waters of March’ by Antônio Carlos Jobim. Named for the point in the year that Brazil sees the end of summer, Jobim wrote both the Portuguese and English lyrics. This may represent the energies available after the recent eclipse set; what’s ended, and what’s begun, intertwined and in some way, in need of personal expression. Essentially the song presents a litany of day to day life, and its inexorable progression toward death, and through this list asks, how will you spend your time? If your life were a series of images, what would that list look like? Now that you’re all cheered up, ready for the way your ideas of what’s wise challenge your current life direction, ready to let flow your tremendous creative urge, ready to solve problems presented by your ambitions, and now that you’re ‘thinking like a winner’ (in part by being clear on what you don’t accept on the social scene), you may want to take a little listen. I couldn’t find a read-out of this exact version, but like it better than any of the other English versions I found.
For those born with the Sun at 26 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 coming solar year, through to your next birthday, may at least in part be spent reforming your thinking about yourself. You’re tuned in to your instincts right now, accepting that intangible way of knowing and intuiting that you’ve previously (in real terms of trusting that info) resisted or even rejected–and this acceptance paves the way for a whole new You, for bringing forward the best possible version of who you are. Will you be brave enough to make the changes, to move closer to your ideal? Yes, I think you will, because you’re also now in possession of a massive creative energy that is attuned to bring reward–and who doesn’t like that? Good luck!
