Numerology/Astrology for 1/28/17
1/28/17 is the number 3. With the number 3, learning to look from first position, second position, and third position will help tremendously in finding your center and looking out with an informed and objective reality. Do not let the negative side of the number 3 pull you into indifference, or create a lack of stamina and concentration. Mania is very possible with the number three so be aware of mood swings and do exercise to try to minimize the stress levels on your body and mind. It is time for you to grow up into who you came to be. It is time to be that more mature energy that is willing to take responsibility for your choices and actions. After all, you have to live with yourself at the end of the day and so make decisions that allow you to not live in denial and regret.
The Moon is in Aquarius all day. Mars moves into Aries early today, where it will transit until March 9th. Mars feels at home in Aries, and as Aries’ ruler, is in a commanding position. This may make your energy more spontaneous, forward-looking, and even courageous. Your competitive spirit is heightened, and your goal is to win! You feel active, single-minded, and confident. Instinctively, you want to find the fastest way to get from point A to point B. The shadow side of Mars in Aries is impatience, arrogance, impulsiveness, short-lived vision, unreflective ability to see how your inside is manifesting your beliefs on the outside, and self-centered myopic view of the world. However, Mars in Aries is authentic, trail-blazing, enthusiastic, and straightforward. Although you can feel in the inside that you are gearing up for standing up in a new way, the Sun forms a semi-square to Saturn today, and there can be quite a bit of self-doubt coming up finally and a conscious awareness that you are having difficulties seeing the truth from the distortion. You are beginning to see how your actions have been satisfying you ego, and they are becoming distasteful. Gratitude may not be forthcoming right now, but this teaches you to look for the intrinsic rewards for your actions at a much later date.
She liked the moon, because like herself, it shined its brightest when nobody was around to see.
I just saw the movie Hidden Figures and I was taken back to the days of my childhood where we had segregated schools in Texas. They were supposed to be desegregated in 1956 because of a ruling but as we know, old habits die hard. Texas was one of the southern states to resist enacting those new rules in the system. I remember it happening more in the 1970’s. That shows you how long it takes to make changes in the public mind. My father (an engineer with Texas Instruments) wanted to bring some engineers from back east to work in his office. He had to interview them and one of them was an African American man. If you can believe, at that time there was no hotel or motel that would allow him to stay as a guest. My father (who was from Brooklyn) was appalled but needed to find him a place to stay to do the interview. He contacted the African American churches and they were kind enough to put him up with a family while he was here for the interview. He got the job and then again, stayed with those same people until he could get an apartment/home in Dallas. My father would never tolerate racism in his presence. For that I am extremely proud. I was raised in a way where you judged someone by the strength of their character and the moral actions that they took in their life not by the color of their skin. I was very proud of this country as to how far we have come. I want to continue to be proud.
