At essence, you possess an innate understanding that originality and self-expression mean having the courage to seek out the unfamiliar and the uncomfortable. Many people, especially now, are too frightened even to contemplate this. Yet bravery is not the absence of fear; it’s being afraid and still doing what you intended to do. Exploration is a crucial component of being awake and conscious; it can also feed your soul in unique ways. Stoke your sense of wonder this year.

Written in the Planets
Underscoring the potential for pleasantness mentioned yesterday, today’s Venus-Jupiter trine could describe contentment and beneficial social encounters, or a much-needed respite from stress this week. It also can relate to self-indulgence and inertia. Either way, if you’re able to perceive a pattern in your experience, you might also be able to use this energy to reap some kind of reward for related past efforts. Keep expectations low on that score, to guard against disappointment — astrology describes potentials of all kinds, but never offers guarantees — but keep an eye out for the opportunity.
Today’s square between the Scorpio Moon and Mars in Leo is brief (and early — 5:16 am EDT), but could kick up some irritation, or defensive reactiveness born of stubbornness. It should pass quickly; though notice what it may be telling you (if anything) about larger or longer-standing circumstances. Anything seeming like a persistent, unsolvable issue may be coming due for some movement or resolution. This appears particularly likely if it’s an inner situation being mirrored by someone you’re interacting with. Apparent blocks to creativity might fit this bill, and could benefit from hands-on playful exploration, possibly in a group environment.
