Can romantic idealism compete with a thirst for power?

At 5:36 a.m.: Venus is sextile Neptune

In the morning, Venus in Capricorn sextiles Neptune in Pisces, a compassionate and romantic aspect. This tender influence is ideal for relating to others. We treat partners sweetly, deepening bonds or reconciling after disagreements. Although we are inclined to over-idealize loved ones now, that might not be such a bad thing. Forgiveness can be a sign of spiritual growth. Fostering supportive spaces where others feel safe to let their guard down can prove that vulnerability is a sign of strength, not weakness. This can also be an excellent opportunity to make tactile creations or immerse ourselves in a visual arts project. 

At 8:22 a.m.: The moon is conjunct Chiron

After sun-up, the Aries moon aligns with Chiron, stimulating insecurities. No matter how we assert ourselves, our efforts seem to fall short. Others don’t take us seriously or cause us to feel less than. However, if we could get some distance from the problem, we would see that we are our own worst critic. Our refusal to stand in our truth is perpetuating our pain. Unfortunately, at this time, the only way out is through. We must feel it to heal it.
