Success in any form — whether personal, professional or in some abstract sense of the word — usually calls for a bold approach. The message of your solar chart this year is fearlessness about being different. Often concern around standing out is one of those lurking debilities that most people never overcome. Yet it’s inevitable that you will, so you may as well get over yourself sooner rather than later. You’re not like the other kids. Cash in on that fact.

Written in the Planets
Do you feel like getting physical, or do you just wanna flirt with someone? Is ‘the usual’ a total turnoff today, and are you in the mood for adventure, the unusual, or the unexpected? Would a part of you be perfectly content engaging in these urges from the comfort of your own home? While the Sun newly in Cancer speaks to the homebody option, a couple of other aspects are putting a spin on what you may feel like doing there.
For one thing, today’s Venus-Jupiter opposition could contribute to just hanging out, laying back, and indulging in whatever’s enjoyable (with Neptune in Pisces adding to the daydream believer / armchair traveler vibe). Yet Venus and Jupiter are in signs that are pretty mentally active and crave stimulation: Gemini and Sagittarius. This ups the conversational potential (and the likelihood of flirtation), along with the need to seek new experiences.
“New experiences” is also a theme of today’s Vesta-Uranus conjunction in Taurus. This aspect feels more intimately personal and less broadly social than Venus-Jupiter, though as Eric wrote this week, “Vesta conjunct Uranus is a revolutionary aspect. The time has come to question sexual conventions and expectations, which so often lead to dark, unloving places. In the spirit of Uranus, every person has their individual sexual orientation and ‘identity’ — which means their distinct journey.”
Even if you’re not quite up for a full-on revolution in your bedroom (much less your psyche), you may consider staying open to surprises — whether in the form of unexpectedly enjoyable physical sensations, an urge to disrupt a long-held sexual habit, or a sudden shift or question about your core values around sex, relationships or your body. Maybe this is something you feel like talking about; maybe it’s something you prefer to hold close to the vest and mull for a while. Either way, you can hold space for yourself to find out.
