Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn is very conservative and asks you the question of what you really need to be happy? Slow down certain things today. Mistakes happen when you have been moving too quickly. Don’t push. Allow things to happen more organically. Some enthusiasm may wane as certain realities of time and energy set in.

I would rather fail at my own goals in life
than to fit into someone’s picture
or projection of who they want me to be.
I believe that art speaks the truth
in moments when truth is hard to hear.
I believe that when a society is unwilling
to face the truth that is right in front of them
the great teachers use quatrains, metaphor,
and poetry to reach those closed minds.
Such tools work from the deep subconscious.
They do not show everything
they allow the mind to question,
wonder, wander, and explore
places in the psyche that are still growing
and that need more awareness.
