Self-actualization is not merely doing something meaningful or useful. It’s about following your calling, which is likely in some way to be different from the expectations formed on you, both as you grew up and today. People do this a lot, and have a hard time letting go; but that’s not your problem. As an adult, you can decide your own path. This sometimes requires unlearning early programming, though if you look within yourself for long enough, you can feel the pull of your soul.

Written in the Planets

For most of the day, both the Sun and the centaur planet Pholus will be in the last degree of their respective signs: Libra for the Sun (the Sun enters Scorpio tomorrow), and Sagittarius for Pholus. Not only does this describe a potential sense of edginess (like wanting to get on with something but the timing not quite being right), it means these two objects have a direct relationship. One way to look at it is that anything you do or express today that relates to your relationships, seeking balance in something, or taking creative initiative could ripple out further than anticipated.

This can be very useful, particularly with creative endeavors. Not all art (whether deeply personal or overtly political) needs to be grand in scale or loud to have profound impact. Sometimes it’s simply about making contact with the right audience at the right time, or connecting with collaborators with whom more emerges than the sum of your individual talents. The point is to take the step toward a goal, no matter how small, to tap into today’s potential.

Remember that when seeking a new equilibrium in a relationship (or with almost anything, really), swinging to an opposite extreme rarely gets the desired result; it simply catalyzes a counter-swing. A little give and take might actually open up the space you’re looking for: that place in the middle where minor adjustments are able to blossom down the road into a wholly new vision. At 5:49 pm EDT Pholus enters Capricorn (again), uncorking issues relating to things like business, government, structure, foundations, limits and leadership. If anything in those realms lights up or takes off for you tonight and in the coming days, take note.
