Fixed Fire Sun trioctiles Neptune (still opposing Venus)
So even if you stand externally confident and together, even if you have some amazing opportunities for new growth and for your ego’s enticement, it is the development within you that are the key during the coming days, as you are compelled to internally question and search to answers as to why you feel no longer sure of yourself despite the work you have done to become someone. You are not necessarily who you have had to become. You are not merely the person that provides, works and earns. You are not your past, even if it has motivated you to move beyond what took place. You are more than that.
As your perception is hyper-attuned to the messages you are now receiving from those in your world (those addictions, escapist tendencies, delusions and deceptions), remember that most do not understand the complex inner world from which you are trying to simplify. The core of you is embedded within this web, a core that is immutable and unfathomable, even if you have had to compromise and make concessions within your external world in reaction to what has taken place. It is the quality of your core that is the focus of the coming Solar Month and even if you feel less whole and less defined than usual, it is a time that can yield amazing opportunity for strengthening and defining your core, as you gather yourself not to react, not to defend, not to berate and not to belittle yourself. There are times when the external world is merely giving you an opportunity to see through the distractions so that you do not compromise your integrity and you stay on your path. This is one of those times. Be as opposed to become.
