This leg of your journey is about concluding old business and getting clear about how you want to show up in the world. You’re poised on the brink of a new era. Your birthday chart looks like a map of what you must engage with consciously, in order to get there. You’re ready to pull back the curtain and really question who, or what, you feel has held power over you, and what needs you have denied. You’re tearing through paper tigers dressed up like fear, and seeing how much easier that is than you thought. In fact, it’s a blast.

Mars on Galactic Core: Finding Your True North
Mars is still aligned with the Galactic Core at 27+ Sagittarius. Over the next few days it will clear the last few degrees of this sign, before entering Capricorn on Feb. 16.
To my ear, this is about tuning your desire nature to your most sincere ethics.
In other words, making sure that what you want matches what you think is right. Or better, what you’ve discovered from experience is right for you. There are many measures of that; you will have to use your own. I think, though, that everything deserves to be verified against the standard of “the greatest good for all concerned.”
Often, people want what they want, and that’s that. Just as often, people get trampled by the desires of others that are not in harmony with the greatest good, and don’t know how to stand up to something they recognize is wrong.
Both count for aligning with your True North.
Side note, Mercury is slow and powerful right now, about to turn to retrograde motion in approximately four days. Make sure you verify what you believe to be true, and check three times before you assert what you believe to be a fact. Correct your errors promptly.
