Aquarius (January 20-February 19)
It’s taken you a long time to figure out what you’re about to discover. Like many inventions or developments, be they spiritual or technical, the breakthroughs are preceded by a long, seemingly endless process of trial and error that doesn’t really get underway until we are completely at home with the experiment. From that place of equilibrium, the results can be surprising, and it would seem an understatement to say this is the direction you’re headed. The main thing I see beginning to work itself out for you is a feeling of doubt that has nagged you for years. Years of Neptune in your birth sign has been relentlessly eroding your confidence, and taking you through many strange spaces where you seemingly had to deny who you are. Chiron arrived more recently (in the mid 2000s) and that pushed the issue in another direction entirely: you could say, a crisis of over-focus, and of pushing the questions of identity to the surface faster than anyone but you would be comfortable dealing with them. In the coming weeks and indeed through this season, the story begins to make a lot more sense. Your past begins to make sense. Your future takes on an odd new dimension: as something real.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
Yes, everything seems to happen at once. Perhaps it would be awesome if the benefits of life arrived when we felt like we needed them the most, but what comes to you this month is quite literally coming home to you. The emotional and psychological place you discover within yourself looks like finding the seat of your soul; your true inner orientation. What shows up as the most beautiful discovery is how the most exalted states of mind, and the true clarity of your awareness, is just one thin veil beyond normal consciousness; one thought away. As you begin to find your place in the world, you may begin to realize the extent to which you’ve been crimped and hobbled by a lurking sense of insecurity and isolation. What you are seeing is a contrast, and that quality of thought or vision can be one of the most useful tools we have, while we need it. I suggest, though, that you begin to take stock of all that your anxiety and insecurity have taught you. This amounts to more than you may think. I would also propose that whatever may have transpired in the outer world in recent years, you have grown to know yourself to a depth that is truly unusual for this world. As the once-in-a-lifetime events of this spring unfold, I trust you will recognize this is the gem you sought, and the one you found.
