Numerology/Astrology for 1/31/15
Today is the number 4. The number 4 is associated with the Emperor card in Tarot so it is time to claim your territory but in a conscious, peaceful, and balanced way. You may feel that the opposite is happening and you are instead feeling as if you do not have control over your reality. Planning is on the board and rather than feel at the whims of fate you will want to have a constructive, realistic, and cautious way of moving through this day. Just remember slow and steady wins the race. There are moments to push but this a moment to be consistent rather than to rush. It is time to create a firm foundation and to stand by your work. The Moon leaves Gemini at 2:09 AM EST, when it enters Cancer. The emotional, protective Cancer Moon harmonizes with both Venus and Neptune – planets that are nearing a conjunction, exact tomorrow. Romantic energy is what you are feeling but with this afternoon’s Mars-Chiron alignment in Pisces, there is a little more edge to the day. You might feel a sense of mission or some fearlessness when it comes to addressing problem areas in your life, particularly related to emotions and attachments. There is a drive to take positive action, possibly to defend or help others (or yourself). This conjunction gives a more purposeful feel to the day – you are not only in strong touch with your feelings and you want to do something about them.
Be patient with sadness. Let it come closer, let it engulf you if it must. Until there is no division between ‘self’ and ‘sadness’. Until you cannot call it ‘sadness’ at all. Until there is only intimacy. Sadness keeps you soft and flexible. It reminds you, when you have forgotten, of the beautiful fragility underneath all things. In the softness of the heart lies its capacity to love. Sadness is not the opposite of joy, but its gateway.
There are moments when you find a quote that explains your life’s karma and journey. For me this one touches deeply. In numerology I am karmically challenged to understand grief and sadness that has been caught in my energy field from past lives and present situations. In a normal day as a psychic I deal with many who are going through many things that are traumatic, emotional, challenging, and stressful. But I can also see the places where others emotional pain touches me deeply. My journey to help others has naturally brought me to have to go even more deeply into my own sadness. Acceptance of what you are feeling especially sadness has acted like a meat tenderizer in my psychology and personal philosophy. Being willing to move into sadness rather that habitually move away from it and go into defensiveness and avoidance forces a softening and a deepening of all things in your body. There is such a human beauty to deep emotions and feelings.
