“Growth is exciting; growth is dynamic and alarming. Growth of the soul, growth of the mind; how the observation of last year seems childish, superficial; how this year — even this week — even with this new phrase — it seems to us that we have grown to a new maturity. It may be a fallacious persuasion, but at least it is stimulating, and so long as it persists, one does not stagnate.”
— Vita Sackville-West

Creativity may be a product of the imagination to a great degree, but it is also inspired by what you know and by deep, fundamental truths. Friends, your wider community or your social life in general could be a potent source of this inspiration at present. Hang out with those you appreciate, and who appreciate you.
Written in the Planets
Mars entering a new sign can encourage a shift in how you use your energy. With Mars in Taurus, you may find yourself focusing on maintaining something you’ve begun; or you could experience a general slowing or settling of pace: tenacity as opposed to overt speed. Mars’ contact with Pholus shortly before changing signs may, however, provide a little extra burst of power.
