Aquarius 

January 20-February 19

Last Updated: 11/04/2013 11:23 am

I've often pondered the phrase “authority issues.” One definition is not knowing one's place in the order of things. The result can be attempting to act with greater influence than one has, or with far less. We see manifestations of both in our society, and the particularly toxic equation of those on a power trip acting out on those on a powerlessness trip. Noticing this dynamic may convince you that you want to get out of the game entirely. True authority begins with your relationship to yourself. It becomes real the moment you recognize that no other person can dictate that relationship, no matter how hard they try and regardless of what happened in the past. This month's solar eclipse is a reminder to be on the lookout for what you might call “shadow figures” from the past who you've internalized. They may boss you around and attempt to tell you who you are and how to feel about yourself. One attribute of finding your authority will be taking back your consciousness from hijacking by these inner voices. The first step in this process is recognizing that they are not you. They may seem convincing but really, if you listen carefully, you will be able to hear the difference. Then you'll be able to feel the difference, in the form of feeling a lot better about yourself.
