It may feel like we’re purposely, Self-destructively, relentlessly staring into the Sun today, out of a pressing need to figure something out: a power situation, a destructive potential, the right transformative move. We’re counting on the revelation, the surprise, the shock, or Higher Mind to send us in the right direction, but we can’t seem to shake the past, or the way our mind seems to run the hamster wheel, restless, restless, restless. If we’ll relax into it, allow synchronicities and the unexpected/ unscripted to guide us, we’ll connect a growing critical faculty to what’s smart, and come up with appropriate, even fortuitous, ideas of what to do, how to handle things.
(Perfecting today: Juno contra-parallel Zeus, Mercury enters Virgo, sesq SN, parallel and sxt Pallas, Sun sesq Pluto and trine Uranus)
Good day to . . . let go. Spontaneity and the unanticipated are our friends. We’re deep into Dark of the Moon, a time when struggle does little good.
For those born with the Sun at 06 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, this solar year, through to your next birthday, you may find yourself thinking that all this struggle, all the problems and machinations, are in service to finally gaining real power, in and over your life–and you would be right, to a point. Yes, the struggle will lead you to a more powerful position in life–but why struggle? Or at least, why struggle so much? The key this year to making real progress that doesn’t come out of chaos is to be willing to engage in a lot of critical thinking. That may sound unpleasant, until you realize it’s less about Self-criticism and more about thinking ahead, attending to details, anticipating reactions, and keeping truthful account of what goes in and what comes out. Focusing on being accountable in all its forms, in fact, will help you balance Self-focus with interaction in such a way that efforts will become as effective as they can be, and so act as the engine to drive you forward. Good luck!
