‘Mountain Peak with Drifting Clouds’ By Caspar David Friedrich c1835 {{PD}}

We see our options and our problems quite clearly, and the question becomes, will we succumb to some negative message from the past that we still carry of our unlovability or lack of assets, or will we take what we’ve learned in the past, filter it through a current ‘power role’ (even if that’s just your individuality), apply ideals, creativity, and spiritual character, and come up with an idea or three about what we should do today? Either we embrace ultimate responsibility for what we can do with our lives, or we sit back and blame the past–today there’s no in-between.

Good day to . . . take a positive approach, not just toward others or circumstances, but toward your own ability to affect and shape your life.

For those born with the Sun at 29 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). Will you serve as your own authority this solar year, through to your next birthday, or will you abdicate, out of a sense that being in charge is too much pressure? Dear Leo, I’d like to say this won’t make that much difference, either way, but that would be a lie. If you take responsibility for yourself and your life, you can open the way to an astonishing number of opportunities; if you say, No thanks, you may spend (another?) year treading water, rather than moving forward. In any case, what comes at you won’t be easy, but your response to it will make all the difference, and dictate how your life will spool out for some time to come. On your side: your instincts, when they aren’t marred by emotion, and your ability to discern what’s an actual barrier, obstacle, or ‘STOP’ sign, and what’s actually an invitation to apply yourself. Good luck!
