‘The Discovery of Honey by Bacchus’ By Piero di Cosimo 1498 {{PD}}

On its face, that title seems a little contradictory, no? But that may be where we find ourselves today, taking firm and even daring steps forward, particularly toward ambition fulfillment, all in the name of not messing things up, of doing what’s necessary to secure our priorities and those things we find sacred. What we honor is an important motivator; it seems vital at this time that we commit our energies carefully, with attention to detail, to how and where they’ll play out. We see the world with a more discerning eye than we did just a day or two ago–and yet the smartest thing we can do with that discernment is to apply it to our own issues, and work to heal ourselves, while causing no harm to others.

(Perfecting today: The Sun and Juno enter Virgo, with the Sun and Mars parallel Vesta, Mercury sxt Zeus and sesq Chiron)

Good day to . . . Self-assess, Self-correct, and make commitments clear and orderly. Be bold, but don’t be slapdash.

For those born with the Sun at 00 Virgo. 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 Virgo, there’ll be some emotional dissatisfaction ahead for you this solar year, through to your next birthday–or will that simply be a time of clarity that reveals that you need to give more attention, and maybe more respect, to your own feelings and needs? In any case, there may also be some sorting around status, duties, roles, and empowerment options, and this could come out of crisis or a choice about whether to re-visit a past form or to strike out with a new one. There’s no one answer here that’s better than the other–it all depends who you want to allow to have authority in your life, who you want to love, and what you want to do on your own, beholden to no one else. A testing year, to be sure, but one you can come out of in much greater command of both your life direction and your emotional investments than you were when you started. Good luck!
