‘Alamedan i Cádiz’ By Anders Zorn 1887 {{PD}}

Will the mind, informed by the instincts, succeed with values reform, perhaps pulling down some false gods or exposing the Truth behind something we’ve been seeing as sacred? Or will it be that sheer power is put behind commitments and what we honor, changing both the pay off and the rules of the game? Either way, powerful change comes to the physical via modifications to the spiritual and intangible. The influence seeps in, whether we are aware of it or not. Act and choose, or be swept along with the currents.

‘Woman Sleeping in a Landscape With a Letter’ By Bernard Gaillot c1800 {{PD}}

Good day for . . . sleeping in. How many of you read the headline that way? If you did, you may be seeking shelter, calm, or rest. Here’s your permission to retreat. The opportunities offered today will only work out if the mind is in sync with the instincts. The exception: if you have a lot of Air in your chart, the mind can often override instincts, and if you’re tired, today might be the day for you to go forward, simply because the mind won’t have the juice to jump in and resist what the instincts tell us!

For those born with the Sun at 17 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, during this coming solar year, through to your next birthday, it may feel as if the past, rather than the future, hangs in the balance. Your attention may repeatedly be drawn back toward what’s already transpired, especially as it has affected your current opportunities and social position. Of course, this isn’t for nothing–it’s meant to prompt you toward changes you need to make, to ‘correct’ or otherwise modify what at the time you felt you couldn’t help–now you can. Now is the time to alter commitments, to learn or tell the Truth about what you’re truly dedicated to, and to make the changes that allow your daily life to approach the Ideal, or that allow expression of your vast creative energies. Good luck!
