Graduating to a higher grade of mastery always follows a test of some kind. This week may present such an opportunity. Trust in yourself and in your goal: what your endgame means to you and why you’re fighting for it. Recognize the difference between self-importance and self-acceptance. The more you push against what’s ‘out there’, the more defensive or controlling you become, the less power you’ll have to act effectively.
If you’re wishing to make a fresh start on any facet of your life, a New Moon in your sign is always useful in some way to that end; though this particular conjunction may be significantly more so. The act of making a beginning, and of getting yourself out of any situation where you feel stuck, will require you to take the initiative.
It’s time to bring the full truth of who you are out into the light, for everyone to see. This revelation, dramatic as it sounds, might not require any sort of fanfare. In fact, it may well represent the culmination of a gradual process of evolution, in which you’ve come to recognize that you can no longer veil your power or your emotions so that others can feel unchallenged.
You are making your mind up about something, though you may not know what it is yet. This is a deep and somewhat mysterious process that is difficult to name, though the decision may involve your commitment to a healing process that you’ve been concerned about for some time. It’s one of those lurking things that are difficult to get underneath, though you’re in a moment when you can do that.
One of the most unusual Mercury-goes-direct moments I’ve ever seen is now in progress, and is taking place in your sign. You’re probably aware Neptune is gradually making its way across Pisces — a gas giant that at times orbits more slowly than Pluto. Now Mercury, the fastest of all the planets, is moving retrograde into a conjunction with Neptune.
One of the most important things you can do at present is to hold firm the line between truth and lies. Among the fallacies pervading our modern era, one that really stands out is the confusion of social media personas with actual people; another is the concept that nothing can be trusted. This sort of thinking is eroding honesty, and causing many people simply to abandon integrity.
