Secrets of the Heart -- in Love and in Art

"We have to recognize that there cannot be relationships unless there is commitment, unless there is loyalty, unless there is love, patience, persistence."

-- Cornel West

When the communication planet (Mercury) receives pressure from the cosmic taskmaster (Saturn) on August 11, you can bet that communication takes on supreme gravity and intensity. Saturn can be restrictive and we will be very aware of the boundaries surrounding our secrets and our passion.

Using this influence constructively, we have the opportunity to give depth and form to our creative voice. Time is of the essence and we will feel the significance of putting our creative expression into crystallized form. If we've been hiding in the shadows, this planetary tension will force us to step into the spotlight. If we tend to hang out on the private side with a fear of being seen, this influence may provide us with the opportunity to put ourselves out there despite our pride and fear of disapproval or judgment. Do it anyway, says Saturn in Scorpio.

With two fixed signs involved in this planetary squabble, we are being challenged to commit to our creativity and passion in a way that we're not allowed to back out. This is a strengthening aspect and a chance to take our creativity seriously. The test is to do what you're most afraid of and watch how powerful you feel afterwards.

Creative courage is the theme now -- in art and in love. Are you ready to totally submit to your heart's desire, no excuses, or are you still trying to keep one foot in and one foot dangling out in order to "save face"? This is not a time to dabble. Do it all the way or don't bother doing it at all.
