Begin your solar year by celebrating everything you value about yourself. This goes deeper than the cultural ritual of the birthday party: it’s about you looking within and honoring all that you bring to the world. We may all be minuscule on the grand scale of the cosmos, but each of us contributes something unique to humanity that is irreplaceable. Be proud of your share in this, and keep on being yourself.

Written in the Planets
Prepare for your mind and your mouth to begin moving a good deal quicker today. The Sun enters Gemini this morning, and then Mercury — ruler of Gemini — follows just a few hours later. With two such expressive planets moving from deliberate (yet sometimes blunt) Taurus to a sign that runs on multiple tracks at once, keep your hands firmly on the wheel as you lean into any curves the day throws you. You may in fact be able to grasp multiple sides of a story of concept, and that sense of clarity could be very useful. It’s also a great reminder to ask others their thoughts on any issue at hand — and then truly listen — just in case they can see something from their vantage point that you’re missing.
On a much less cerebral level, an opposition between Venus in Taurus and Typhon in Scorpio offers an image of confronting strong emotions, either your own or those of someone you’re close to. No matter how intimidating that kind of vulnerability may feel, remember that there is tremendous strength in emotional honesty. The thing is, it’s the kind of strength that reveals itself most clearly as — or after — you step into it to express what’s been going on beneath the surface. When you show up in this way for yourself, you might be surprised to discover how willing the other person is to rise to the occasion.
