(Jan 21 - Feb 19)
We are all aware, in the 21st century, of a seemingly endless number of options. We all know that we could be here, or there, or could be doing this or could be experiencing that. But if you're to fulfil the right ambition for the right reason this year, you've got to weigh 'could' very carefully, and ignore 'should' almost completely - and overcome the sense of guilt that seems to fill you with horror the moment you contemplate the suggestion. That will do you no harm. There are certain emotional issues that you have been carrying around with you for a long time. It is as if you have been a hiker walking round with a backpack which you believe to be full of essential items. You never really open it though. You never have time. Then one day, you finally open it up and look inside and see - boulders! Bricks and bits of rubble.
In a series of little revelatory moments throughout 2005, you will gradually discover that you no longer have to keep feeling as though you're doing something wrong. Nor will you have to keep wondering whether or not you're doing the right thing. You'll free yourself of a psychological burden and, as you do, you'll become able to take advantage of a series of amazing worldly opportunities that have been hanging around on the edges of your life, just waiting for you to notice and take advantage of them.
We also know, though, that you can think yourself rich as much as you like but you won't ever pay the rent by writing the words 'I believe' on a cheque. But when you are putting in the effort and energy AND the positive thought, magic really can happen. And it will happen for you this year. This year's biggest opportunities won't necessarily have the words 'opportunity' written on them. Nor will they necessarily come wrapped up in glittery bows and be presented to you on silver platters by smiling pop stars and assorted celebrities. Indeed, you may look at the developments that represent your biggest financial opernings this year and at first feel inclined to say, 'Oh no! Not that!'. The issues they raise or the propositions they involve may point towards activities you don't especially enjoy - or processes that annoy you or people you can't stand or situations that get your back up.
But that's the extent of the bad news. The good news is that you've got the ability to rise to any challenge that arises. Summon the willingness and soon, whatever looks so dauntingly difficult will become surprisingly easy. You will become significantly better off, as a direct result of embracing an opportunity you don't much fancy and turning it into something you can really work with, run with and be proud of.
That's not necessarily good for either of them... for both are becoming further entrenched in roles they need to be coaxed out of. Relationship therapists know all about this. One of the first things they have to do when helping a couple is help them work out whose 'emotional stuff' really belongs to who!
Sedna, the newly discovered planet of emotional intelligence, is now passing through the part of your chart that governs 'home and family'. The strong suggestion here is that in 2005, your love life will improve dramatically as fast as you start thinking harder about why certain dramas keep playing themselves out in your life.
Thinking harder does not mean going over the same old ground a million times. Nor does it mean wasting endless hours bemoaning events that have now taken place and can't be changed. There isn't time to look at all the things that could have been different 'if only' this had happened instead of that. But there is, always, time to take a difficult past and, through understanding it better in the present, turn it into a much easier future. You'll find there's always plenty to worry about this year but as long as you refuse to succumb to that, not only will your currently complex love life get simplified, it will also get a lot more enjoyable.
The new world which is having such an impact on your world is called Sedna, after the ancient Inuit goddess of ice and ocean. Sedna's story is complex and challenging. It obliges all who hear it to think hard about what is or is not 'acceptable' in life.
Sedna is currently positioned in the part of your chart that governs home and family. That's why you are now so concerned about 'what's appropriate' in this area. You set yourself high standards because you want so much for the people around you. A degree of tension naturally ensues from this and you can no more remove it from your life than you can take away your own sense of humour. It's a part of who you are and what you are. It's a fine part, too, as long as it is kept under some control. Sedna insists you can, this year, develop greater choice over when you allow yourself to hurry and worry. And when you are just going to sit back and not bother. Her main influence on you will be to enforce a good look at the word 'should' - and the way it gets used and abused in your life. In the coming year, as this process unfolds, a lot of what currently seems to be a source of pain or frustration may yet become a source of pleasure. And there's pleasure in store of another kind too, as we shall explain in more detail in Part Two when we look at your love life forecast.
