“Creativity is paradoxical. To create, a person must have knowledge but forget the knowledge, must see unexpected connections in things but not have a mental disorder, must work hard but spend time doing nothing as information incubates, must create many ideas yet most of them are useless, must look at the same thing as everyone else, yet see something different, must desire success but embrace failure, must be persistent but not stubborn, and must listen to experts but know how to disregard them.”
Twelve Things You Were Not Taught in School About Creative Thinking (The Creativity Post, December 6, 2011)]”
Activity is spontaneous and encouraging, which helps to build hard won confidence. Today does not necessarily offer an easy road but our capacity to quickly sort through options — figure it out and move forward — can be quite intoxicating. We may find that we can shine brightly today but should be aware that we arrive at the Winter Solstice tomorrow, further emphasizing the conservative, contracting principles of Capricorn that are already extremely powerful in this environment. There is very little room for pride and hubris here. Nonetheless, capabilities, effectively deployed, will provide powerful legitimacy as we go forward.
Venus is newly in Aquarius and today the moon is in Libra, Venus’ home sign—highlighting our relationships, and a need for balance and harmony among the collective. This begins with acceptance for oneself and others, our differences, and similarities.
In the morning, the Libra moon forms a sextile with Mercury in Capricorn, bringing conversations, information, and choices. Both Libra and Sagittarius are asking for balance, temperance, and honesty. Keep the big picture in mind and you can make wise choices.
As the day progresses the Libra moon squares Saturn and Pluto, bringing (perhaps) difficult choices. But we’re turning a corner, moving to the new moon and solar eclipse in a week, and this is a chance to make choices that take you further toward a goal. Squares ask for an inner resolution, and this is a chance to reclaim your authority and power to make choices that work for you. Then trust what you care about will find a natural balance.
