The 4th: You know that phrase, ‘to strong arm’ something or someone? Today every interaction may feel that it carries an element of compulsion, of someone or something trying to force us–to do what almost doesn’t matter–or even that we are compelled from some internal need, for Truth, for power, for ego gratification, for action where there has been none. It’s a pushy-shove-y vibe, one where we could end up tearing down what give us security out of our own personal insecurities–and then there’s the question of who’s in charge. What we need to remember is that no matter what, we are in charge of ourselves, and that’s so even when options have been narrowed by externals. Proceed with care, and find outlets for energy that refrain from blowing things up.

The 5th: After all that ‘firm’ interaction yesterday, we find some soft arms to fall into. It may mean dealing with what we’d rather ignore, but it leads to a peaceful mental state, or to some gem of an idea, to something of worth in what we were ready to discard–so why not face things? We come out ahead if we do.

For those born with the Sun at 12 Leo. 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). Intention and effort go hand in hand for you this solar year, dear Leo, and you’ll recognize opportunity on the horizon–but first you have to deal with all that you’ve ignored, denied, that angers you, or that you’ve kicked to the curb, thinking you’d never have to do something about it. First, don’t make the mistake of taking an attitude; this isn’t punishment, it’s the Universe’s way of removing obstacles that would definitely keep you from accessing most of those opportunities. A psychic housecleaning is needed, and you’re ready to do that–and well done, this may change your ideas of what’s wise, what’s practical, and may even change your fate. Good luck!
For those born with the Sun at 13 Leo. 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 Leo, getting ‘more’ is right over there–and you’re probably putting all your attention on how to get to it. I’m here to help. You’ll need to accept the emotional realities of your relationships; you’ll need to allow certain unanticipated events to heal you (and it may be difficult to let go of the idea that if you don’t work for it, you can’t heal–the reality is, you absolutely can); and then, as you move toward getting more, you’ll need to simultaneously acknowledge that there are currently limits, and that to pass beyond them is to potentially gamble away your gain. OK, go get ‘um, and good luck!
