Can there really be a battle between the past and the present? The past exists only in our minds, though for many people, that’s compelling enough to hold them there permanently. You are being summoned to find the present, and to resolve to live your life your way. That means you will need to abandon the seeming requirements and obligations others placed on you in the distant reaches of your history. Commit yourself to being the person you are today, not the figment of anyone’s imagination, including your own.

Written in the Planets
Current aspects being made by Mars in Cancer appear to be marked by things like pushing against authorities, an urge to try a new path, or the impulse toward “aggressive caring.” Yet Venus — newly in Gemini, and opposing Ceres in Sagittarius today — seems to favor a lighter approach to interpersonal situations. For example, notice whether you find intellectual rapport, easygoing flirtation or verbal-philosophical banter to feel especially engaging now, and even nourishing on some level.
What new modes of relating do you feel like exploring? Does it vary like night and day, or like two sides of a coin, depending on who you’re interacting with? David Byrne once said, “Sometimes it’s a form of love just to talk to somebody that you have nothing in common with and still be fascinated by their presence.” Today could be one of those days.
