“We must recognize the full human equality of all of our people before God, before the law, and in the councils of government. We must do this, not because it is economically advantageous, although it is; not because the laws of God command it, although they do; not because people in other lands wish it so. We must do it for the single and fundamental reason that it is the right thing to do.”
— Robert F. Kennedy

As the Sun moves through the final degrees of your sign, it’s making an aspect which implies tension, emotional conflict and the sensation of not knowing what’s true. This looks like a playback of confusion you’ve experienced many times before, particularly around your birthday. If you’ve never quite arrived at the point where the confusion became your teacher, now is a great moment to let it be just that. The space of not knowing is a vital one to enter fully. Usually we react with denial, which often comes in the form of false certainty. The thing you want to watch out for these days is false uncertainty. You know you’re pushing certain issues a little more than some people who say they like you would prefer. Don’t worry about being popular. Don’t argue for your cause. Pause and walk away before you respond or react in an emphatic way. You may think that others challenge you at their own risk, but if you overreact, the peril is yours and yours alone.

Written in the Planets
The conversation between Psyche and Asbolus is one that speaks to the progress of the human soul. One by-product of not being an omniscient species is that, occasionally, our ambitions clash with our circumstances. It is tempting to engage in flights of fancy and ignore the challenges with which we all too often must deal. There is nothing wrong at all in exercising the imagination: it can give rise to breakthroughs of importance and substance. There is just enough magic and mystery in human life to make it enchanting. Yet remember that going the scenic route strengthens the character and sharpens the mind. Challenge is really another word for gift.
