Astrology/Numerology for 2/1/18
2/1/18 is the number 5. Keep your feet firmly planted on the ground. During times of intense transformation, you learn that grounding is more essential than the projection of what you want. When you learn to deal with one thing at a time and to live in the moment, you discover the small victories are very satisfying. Life is life. Life has elements that want to pull you into suffering. But suffering is a choice and a decision to fall into a place of hopelessness and powerlessness. You can just as easily recognize what is happening in the moment and choose to believe that from this moment there will be a type of growth and new awareness. It is always about having faith in your ability to move through difficult times regardless of your circumstances. Believing in yourself and your adaptability is essential to find the hidden pathways that are in any type of situation or circumstance. The path is found by having faith and belief in this life’s journey. All karmic suffering can be worked through at a certain point when you give your heartfelt, authentic self to the moment and are willing to look at all moments with a compassionate eye.
The Moon is in Leo and Virgo today. The Moon continues to transit through Leo until mid-afternoon. You might experience a quicker response to your emotions and getting things organized and done. The Virgo Moon is exacting and extremely discriminating as to the process and progress that needs to be accomplished. Expect to feel tested by some life circumstances around the Moon’s square to Mars in the evening. You are torn between wanting to take care of details and a desire to break free of old habits and patterns. Today is a constantly changing environment because you will need to make minor adjustments to your plan as you move throughout the day. You may feel that your judgment of what you feel you should do seems to be in conflict with your basic morals, values, and ideals. However, express that inner generosity to others and learn to be more accommodating of others’ needs, behaviors, and patterns.
Did you become what you used to dream?
Or did life carry you along a foreign stream?
Life understands that your hopes and fears
stop you from hearing the music of the spheres.
All you can do is align that dream
in the crosshairs of your hearts beam.
And project that light beyond this time and space.
and open your soul to the greatest divine grace.
I had my dream as a child, which was to be a professional dancer. And (thank the stars) I was able to achieve that dream in this lifetime. But when I was young I could feel intuitively the map of my life all the way up to 35 years old. But no further. I actually could see the sequences of my life and the major stepping stones that would get me from here to there. It gave me a great deal of confidence in the face of the harsh reality and potential disappointments of the highly competitive world of ballet. And I am very grateful for all that. But from 35 years old on, life was an unknown. I embarked on my own version of a hero’s journey into the darkness that was beyond my dream and into my soul’s potential. If anyone had ever told me I would be a published author, I would have laughed in their face. I had no degree in literature. I had limited college education. What on earth made me think that anyone would be interested in what I thought or what I had to say? As a dancer, I was used to pantomime as a way to express my feelings. Words seemed too easy to construe and to have others twist out of the position of their intention. Body language seemed solid, clear, and congruent. And yet, there was this voice inside that had to share and express and when the cycle of dancing had its natural death and ending there was still this driving force inside that wanted to share feelings and deep truths with others. So, the only way was to reconnect to that talent I had as a child in writing poetry and prose. I am grateful to all of you that enjoy my musings as I share thoughts, moments, feelings, and impressions with you. Thank you again for listening.
