December 21 – January 19
Salt of the earth, they’ve always called you. These days, though…Most of the time the substance beneath your feet feels more like quicksand or a fault line than terra firma. And who knows who or what you’re going to see in the mirror. You’re as surprised as the rest of us by the cast of characters passing themselves off as you.
Take heart. You have the astro-right, indeed the imperative, to switch out faces and personalities now. Think of it as long-overdue adolescence, testing boundaries and limits. (Okay, so some of them are disintegrating without your help.) Shirking responsibility is actually good and healthy, if it frees you from an obligation or way of thinking that is stifling you.
Letting a lighter, looser you out is part of the cosmic plan that’s been unfolding since 2008. It hits measurable, welcome milestones before summer. Maneuvering room on the home front is part of the picture. So is rebalancing the whole home life vs. outside world seesaw. The marvel you pull off in that equation involves slamming a chapter shut and rewriting your public life.
Also in store: resetting — which is to say, banishing — the assumption that you have to take care of everything and everybody. Including siblings and neighbors. Especially siblings and neighbors. Scoff at that suggestion, but you know you want it.
Expect March and June to be hopping. Allocation of duties on the home front will be a hot topic. Bring up what’s been bothering you, or let the power surge through you and watch the chips fall. Either way, that landscape is up for reshaping.
By the fall, the morph-a-thon that has been your life since 2012 is scheduled to begin stabilizing into more consistent parameters. Until then, experiment, wildly. Actually, feel free to experiment after then, too. Experimenting could well be part of the new you. Self-knowledge is certainly a component. How do you truly know unless you explore? Now’s the time.
