Numerology/Astrology for 1/7/16
January 7th is the number 8. Take a breath and let it go. Let go of the upset, dysfunction, betrayal, or any other emotion that hung you up yesterday. Again, you are human and your human self is going to feel slighted by the choices of others but most of the time those choices have nothing to do about you and everything to do about the other person. Each of us follows our unconscious destinies to expose our karma, where we are still learning something, and where we are still caught in insecurity and fear. Then those choices we make are designed to bolster ourself and we allow our ego to create walls of protection and we push people away. Yes, you are feeling like one of those at the moment. Yes, you are pissed off but underneath that protective feeling of anger is hurt and betrayal. Instead of feeding the anger, go down to the deeper layer and feel the loss, the hurt, and the deep sadness that those you respected and gave a lot of energy to do not do the same in return. That is the way of life. There are those who have to make everything about them and others are just tools that give energy to them. Take a look at where you gave something very deep and precious to someone who did not respect or deserve this gift. Notice that they used your energy but did not acknowledge the great value of that love and gift. Now, it is time for you to recognize the great gift that you are and see that you wanted them to value you when in actuality you needed to value yourself first. The Moon is in adventurous Sagittarius all day. The Sun forms a square with Uranus this morning. Just know that you can’t expect much of anything when the Sun squares Uranus except the unexpected! Disrupted routines and plans are very possible, and these ideally help to stimulate the adoption of new approaches. During this transit, you feel the need for action, but if you don’t know where you’re headed, you might take the wrong turn. Unexpected changes in plans or events can test your patience and in general life feels a bit out of control. This moment is trying to stimulate you to try new approaches and break you out of that place where you have felt a bit stuck. Sometimes anger is a great approach to initiate a change but it is like a fire that can be short lived. Think things through before you just as you don’t want to make hasty major decisions right now. Jupiter stations and turns retrograde today and will retrograde until May 9th. During this cycle, slowing down projects or plans may be appropriate in order to gain perspective. It can take a minute to adjust to a Jupiter retrograde as it can make you feel as if you have a little less faith in the universe and your expectations become more realistic.
Like water, be gentle and strong. Be gentle enough to follow the natural paths of the earth and strong enough to rise up and reshape the world.
Can you feel that pinch? Already things are heating up in 2016 and as I take a long, slow, cooling breath I remind all of you that you are going to be doing a lot of that over the next year. And since we are just at the beginning it is good to pace yourself and this energy as you continue to gear up and gear down for different events that are conspiring to happen all around you. The motto this year is: “Think first and find a clear, calm mind before you act so that you are not constantly responding as ‘reacting’”
