Written in the Planets
Today’s aspects involve a couple of minor planets associated with holding space: Vesta and Chariklo. Just after midnight ET, Vesta makes a trine to Chiron; a few hours later, the Sun conjoins Chariklo (mythologically, the wife of Chiron). In what ways do you hold space in your life for others’ needs, and for your own? You might consider whether you feel there’s a healthy balance; that would also mean ensuring you’re expressing your whole self in all its complexity. Real devotion means being completely free. How else can you freely give?
