By Soul Level Astrologer Mark Borax
Through February the asteroid Juno presides, lining up on the opposite side of the sky from the other fourteen planets. Juno regulates Critical Mind, discerning consciousness, the razor-sharp intellect, which, like a powerful guard dog, is an instrument that must be freed from its destructive tendencies to its higher form of service.
When the guard dog becomes adrenalized, lashing out at imperfections of self and other, we get flagellated by the dark side of this asteroid goddess. But when Critical Mind gets recruited for higher service, we embody the part of Juno that wants to bring social systems into the rule of love and greater collective need.
This month, your active intelligence will be tested to grow beyond picking situations apart out of restlessness and spite, to breaking down the mechanics of positive change. This requires seeing through the shallow, frequently-manipulated consciousness of our time, and making the right corrections and adjustments for society to regain its soul and move forward. When Critical Thinking combines with soul, the bright future comes into view, because we desperately need not just the heart of humanity, but its sharp brain power as well.
