(December 22-January 20)
One theme of recent years is whether people can take your intensity. It’s not like you try to come on so strong—I would guess you’ve done a fair amount of toning yourself down, though to little avail. Pluto working through your birth sign coupled with Uranus cooking the home and security angle of your chart sometimes comes with the sensation that you live in a microwave oven. You need people in your life who have a large perspective. You need people whose wisdom exceeds the petty worries that so many obsess over and that it’s so easy for you to obsess over. What’s dawning in your chart is the ability to recognize such a person when you see him or her. You might think that it’s impossible that you could ever have a meeting as equals with someone who can see life through a very large lens. I suggest you ask yourself why that would be, assuming it’s true. How do you respond when someone who is actually offering you something, someone who is generous and protective, shows up? In particular, the question of trust is one to focus on. You may be concerned that anyone who can offer you something can also take it away. That may be more power than you want to give over to anyone, though if you want to exchange with others in a meaningful way, you’ll need to address that question—which falls under the general rubric of trust. Now for the last question: When you have good reasons to trust, how do you respond?
