Astrology of Thursday, January 23
The past and the future remain locked in a tug of war, but there is movement. Ad adjustment, a realization that an unforseen event or jarring news is introducing a new reality. Something has to be let go to make room for the new. Women may be a little quicker to understand this. Tension remains between the sexes, but I think, in general, it is because men are a little more stuck in denial that the old world order has not passed away permanently. A practical and pragmatic approach is required. Get on with letting old, outmoded ways of being go...a door must close before another opens.
Hold tight, though, to the highest principles and ethical standards, and the Universe will provide what you need to undertake the work of letting current realities go. This affects a broad swath of the population: anyone with planets in mid to late degrees of Capricorn, Aries, Cancer and Libra and at early degrees of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. You can look up your planets for free at www.astro.com under the tab "All About Astrology".
Although, we are looking at personal issues, there are country wide issues, too. The US Sibley Chart show we are a Cancerian country, deeply affected by issues that will re-echo issues that led to the American Revolution. We each have to decide who we are, and what we are going to stand for. And the country does, too.
