As per the Daily Mystic email for Wednesday’s today is cognitive dissonance to the max.
We have Venus conjunct Neptune (dreamy, surreal and romantic) versus Sun square Saturn (hard-edged, power-focal ambition.)
Venus-Neptunian Vibe is idealistic, conjuring up magical realism. It’s inspirational crushes, whimsical messaging, marshmallows, ghosts, perfume, art, and fantasy,
Sun square Saturn is ready to exile anyone who gets in their way. It is expedient and hyper-aware of time/money concerns. Choose one or opt for a weird hybrid version.
If it helps, here is a concise summary of my baseline Saturn tips. They’re particularly pertinent with an Aries Sun agitating Saturn for the next 40 hours.
Sun Square Saturn Tips
(1) In sex and money matters, anyone saying “it’s complicated” is mistaken. It’s not complicated, it’s simple. It’s just sleazy, flaky or illegal.
(2) Beauty is an inside job. For example, you can smear as much high-class gunk on your scalp or brows as you want but your hair won’t grow if your ferritin levels are low.
(3) Tax is an obligation and not worth the stress of resentment, even if you think the politicians are part of a corrupt corporate kleptocratic Ponzi scheme.
(4) Self-deprecation is an unaffordable luxury in this era. Don’t devalue yourself.
And, lest you think that Saturn aspects are a buzz-kill, no they are not. Below is the Sun square Saturn delineation from my natal Astral DNA birth chart report.
Focus and a keen sense of fighting against adversity is an inbuilt feature with this lot. They’re here for a long time – not necessarily a good time. They specialize in rags to riches and doing whatever the hell it takes to come out on top. They’re likely a hell of a lot more insecure about their innate worth than their super-together appearance suggests. Starhawk – the prototypal eco-feminist-Pagan and author of The Spiral Dance is a Sun-square-Saturn person: “Unless I have enough personal power to keep commitments in my daily life, I will be unable to wield magical power.” They often feel alienated by their very stoic powers of focus and ability to thrive in solitude.
