Numerology/Astrology for 2/12/15
Today is the number 4. Finding balance even as Mercury is in its shadow has been interesting. There were moments when I just had to laugh the last few days and roll my eyes and say, “Mercury Retrograde!” Now I know that some of you will never notice or care when Mercury is going retrograde but my chart with some very dominant Gemini and Virgo, well let’s just say, “It can get interesting”. Computer snafus, delayed clients, redoing videos for my Wild Women Symposium, and just a barrage of ongoing small glitches. So I am grateful that it is slowly ending over the next two weeks. The Jupiter/Uranus trine is making some wonderful positive, surprising, and sudden changes, which some of you will feel grateful for and others might feel a bit put off. Regardless, it is a day to practice clear communication (the 4) and be in balance regardless of what Mercury at throws you. The Moon continues its transit of Scorpio for almost half of the day, until 11:48 AM EST, and all that is hidden, taboo, secret, or suppressed interests us. The Moon transits Sagittarius from 11:48 AM forward, and you will begin to look outside of yourself for answers. A Sagittarius Moon is enthusiastic, forward-looking, and adventurous. However, the Moon’s alignment with Saturn brings you back down to earth. There can be some need to put a curb on your enthusiasm if you’re not considering what’s practical and feasible.
An affectionate disposition not only calms the mind, it’s good for our physical well-being too. On the other hand, hatred, jealousy and fear disturb our peace of mind, they make us agitated physically and mentally. Such agitation is disturbing, which shows that the need for peace of mind is in our blood.
Being loving is the goal in life. Love from an authentic place that is calm and genuine is a beautiful thing to be a part of. But being loving when you feel strained internally, when you are feeling desperate, or you are trying to fulfill your own identity of a “rescuer” actually causes suffering within you. Coming from a place of needing to save others or coming from a place that your own needs have to be overlooked because of another person’s desperation is not healthy. Boundaries are essential tools to help you learn to support from a place that is healthy rather than a constant, chronic override of energy which in turn not only perpetuates a feeling that you do not deserve to be happy but that is also not allowing karmic lessons to be learned in sometimes a harsh manner. Those people who are empathic and deeply sensitive are very vulnerable to those people who are carrying a form of dysfunction and neediness. But what all of us have to learn is that no one else can actually carry us. We have to learn to love ourself and take responsibility for our actions. When we manipulate others to do things for us and we do not learn how to do it ourself then we are forever insecure and deep inside we know that we are missing something and therefore incapable or lacking in some area. That is a horrible feeling. Sensitive people feel that other person’s suffering and if can become so painful that they become determined to shift that reality by helping. But there is that old saying that everyone has heard a hundred times, “You can feed a person with a fish but what is better is to teach them how to fish so that then they will never be hungry.” The same applies here. Each of us is here to learn how to become self-sufficient. Struggles teach us to value and love ourself. Challenges teach us determination and confidence. Earth lessons become embodied and that makes us feel safe on the planet and give us the knowing that we can overcome challenges and find the way through the problems. So for all you “rescuers” out there, stop. Step back. And allow the lessons to come to those who you love. You cannot save everyone. You can show them the door but they have to walk through. If you chronically choose to carry those you love through the door over and over again, you will become exhausted and break down. And even then they will still have to figure out how to go through the door. Stop now and let things fall. Let the realness of the hard earth lessons come forward. Hold the place of compassion and faith that they will find the doorway eventually. It is not your job to habitually rescue those who cannot swim but keep jumping into the water without a life jacket. Be the beacon of hope, faith, and love. Believe that something and someone stronger than you is guiding them. We want to save others from the harsh lessons of our life but we cannot. Life has to teach certain lessons. Trust life. It knows the way and let yourself find a new type of freedom.
