‘A Storm in the Rocky Mountains, Mt. Rosalie’ By Albert Bierstadt 1866 {{PD}}

The 9th is a Good Day To . . . surrender to whatever it is you’ve been fighting, resisting, denying, or afraid of. In surrender we see how little power the ‘thing’ actually has. All choice resides in us, including and most especially the choice of how we will see, frame, and react to our surroundings both tangible and intangible. Really, it’s the only way to find peace in this moment.

‘Himalayas, Tibet’ By Nicholas K. Roerich 1932 {{PD}}

The 8th is a Good Day To . . . realize that the past, what we’ve learned or been taught over the years, and our beliefs and philosophy loom large–and that those experiences have not necessarily conveyed an accurate picture of reality, especially as it stands now. Our awareness is edged around by fears and an awareness of the darker elements, it’s a bit fantabulized (is that a word? It is now!), maybe weighted with the constraints and expectations of ideals and wishful thinking, possibly shaped by our creative and power-oriented impulses, and certainly looking for a way forward that limits our costs and preserves our Love and material well-being. Our aims aren’t unreasonable, but this may not be the time to address those things we believe threaten our priorities and our goals. Our perceptions are distorted, maybe even pulled out of shape by the upcoming Lunar eclipse, or pressured as stationary Uranus readies to take apparent direction (if it’s in hard aspect as it sits at 2 Taurus to some natal placement or point, then it’s definitely exerting an effect through Higher Mind and/ or chaos or rebellion). No matter the cause, do your best to rise above the current fray, both to avoid a misstep and to soothe your own sanity.

‘Washerwomen of Seville’ By Charles Frederic Ulrich c1887 {{PD}}

The 7th is a Good Day To . . . look at all the things we’re doing right, especially concerning our health. Too often we’re focused on what’s wrong, and particularly on what’s wrong with us–and that’s no way to go through life. Consider the ways you can change it up, adjust, try something new, and in the course of it learn something beneficial, acting to effectively expand your well-being and your world.

“Old Man’s Treasure (The Little Kitten)’ By Karl Gussow 1876 {{PD}}

The 6th is a Good Day To . . . derive a reward perfectly appropriate to our pursuit of ambitions yesterday! Funny, right? Who expected things to pay off so soon, and so well? Creativity is high, and so is idealism; only a little effort is needed to make them an active part of the day. And perhaps best of all, healing comes effortlessly and in unexpected and clever ways, mostly in the course of earning, relating, or making Art or Love.

‘Vase of Flowers’ By Hans Memling 1480 {{PD}}

The 5th is a Good Day To . . . go after ambition and desire fulfillment, and don’t wait to feel sure inside, deep down to your bones–if you do, you’ll miss the opportunities that currently exist. Stick to values, don’t do anything unhealthy–the usual admonitions, this time with the added assurance that pursuing your wants will coincidentally unlock some fortuitous coincidences and bring forward just the help you need.

The 4th is a Good Day To . . . lay low, at least until the Moon is well into Taurus (enters Taurus 8:15 AM PST/ 11:15 AM EST, out of range of described issues probably by sometime after 3 PM Pacific). We technically start the day under a Void Aries Moon, which is like an invitation to frustrated energies and emotional discomfort as it is. And, as Luna enters Taurus, it quincunxes Mars at 00 Sagittarius and moves quickly on to conjoin Uranus. That spells anger that leads to impulsivity, or action that brings on the unexpected, even chaos–and all of it backed by emotions, the feeling nature, intuition, or senses stirred and driving choices. Add to this that as the Moon approaches Uranus it semi-squares Neptune and semi-sextiles Chiron, and what occurs could have origins in a misperception (or, in more fortunate circumstances, be inspired by spirit), and may relate to the wound–with the question being, will we heal or hurt ourselves with our spontaneous acting out?

‘Mont Sainte-Victoire and the Viaduct of the Arc River Valley’ By Paul Cézanne {{PD}}

There’s been a glitch around the post for the 2nd ever since I wrote it; please click here to find it!

The 3rd is a Good Day To . . . use our current empowerment options to mine those areas we’ve been ignoring or denying for the rewards, positives, relationship payoffs, and benefits they can offer. ‘Use what you’ve got’ may be our motto, and what’s been learned in the past and from past experience can be especially useful, with one exception, discussed below.

Mars moves into Sagittarius, and we head for the horizon. We want to know, to expand our reach, to learn or teach, and our initial impulse may be to believe that what we thought yesterday can still guide us today (Merc conj SN)–and in this one area, action propelled by curiosity and the need to explore, we find the one place we must rely more on reading the current reality than on accumulated knowledge or experience.

If we have any other watchword, it might be, ‘Keep it healthy’. Our habits and behaviors carry a bigger impact than usual, right now.

The 1st is a Good Day To . . . remind yourself that the past wasn’t actually easier than what you face now, it just seems so. There’s also the matter of being hyper-aware of all the restrictions, barriers, and ‘no’s you’re currently being served in the ambition and desire fulfillment areas. Don’t worry–it’s just that today shadows and negative elements seem more prominent than opportunities and positives, but that’s just a perceptual trick of the light. It’s a time to rest, recover, and recuperate–discomfort should point you toward things that really will hold you back, if not attended to–everything else can wait while you get things, and yourself, ready for tomorrow.

Happy New Year to One and All!

The 31st is a Good Day To . . . proceed with care. Our New Year’s Eve temptation will be to indulge in something unhealthy that is specific to our past. This develops only because our instincts are off, corrupted by all those things we’ve been ignoring or in denial of. They’re like whispers urging us to backslide, give up, not love ourselves. We do best to listen for and be open to the genuine Love around us, and to offer this to others in our communications; the challenge is that what’s authentic may not look as we expect it to, and what we usually see as loving may take on a very different hue today. We have to be open to seeing interactions and expressions for what they are, and to seeing what they actually mean. We benefit by thinking–a simple formula, but one we may consider dodging for any number of reasons! Just don’t. Have a very happy and safe start to the New Year!

The 30th is a Good Day To . . . engage in radical and radically original thinking. Spontaneous communication is the most enlightening, informed as it will be by Higher Mind. Apply what’s most unique within a situation or even within yourself to understanding the present and its connection to the past. Carry on!
