Numerology/Astrology for 2/8/16
February 8th is the number 10. The new beginning that is happening with the numerology is associated with the patterns that are activating astrologically. The new beginning is about someone or something from the past that ended badly but now has come back around to heal. When you love someone you open to that person and that is an invitation to allow their energy to help you change and shift. Love does not say, “You have to love and accept me exactly as I am.” Love peals away layers of garbage that you somehow got attached to and it is the vulnerability of love that allows another to change us in sometimes dramatic and deep ways. Today is a day to reflect on those who changed you utterly. It was your love of them and the vulnerability that so powerfully opened you to another reality. But things don’t always go as planned and even though some people in our life are there for only a brief time the impact that they had creates an attachment to a potential future possibility that may or may not unfold. Spiritual families are those that have impacted you greatly. But we are all human and down here doing our own karma. Sometimes it is our own karmic path that pulls us out of one situation and forces us to move in a new direction. That does not negate the power and connection that we have had with others. It is just the nature of living in a human body and on a limited linear time level. Today, you see something from the past not with the eyes of attachment or of not getting the outcome you wanted but from a place of acknowledging those people were spiritual family. They have always been and will always be. So it is time to reconnect from a place of love and seeing that connection and letting go of how that relationship dissipated. None of us are enlightened yet, and all of us have said things and done them in a way that did not reflect our highest potential. Forgive yourself and then forgive others and you will find the peace and appreciation that you so desire. An early morning sextile between Venus and Chiron softens your disposition and it can give you a chance to heal personal relationships from the past. You can more easily see beauty in human weaknesses and the journey that each soul needs to take for its own evolution. A semi-square between Mercury and Neptune, may point to some tendency to see what you want to see and gloss over facts. A New Moon occurs in the sign of Aquarius at 9:40 AM EST, marking the beginning of a new cycle. There is a strong focus for friendship, brotherhood, group activities, social pursuits, group projects, trying something new, humanitarian efforts, or joining a group. This can feel like a major shift and a move towards clean new beginnings. Take advantage of this potent Aquarius energy, as it gives you the chance to make progressive changes that release you from an old burden or upset. It is time for all of us to pay attention to the things from the past that have mattered greatly but have not worked out the way we wanted or planned. Today, gives you insight into the larger overview of some of these patterns that allow you to step out of your old position and into a more flexible way of seeing yourself and others. This New Moon’s square to Mars emphasizes the impulsive energy of a New Moon. However, you have the opportunity to come up with very workable ideas that are also innovative. The Moon is in Aquarius all day.
Nobody will protect you from your suffering. You can’t cry it away or eat it away or starve it away or walk it away or punch it away or even therapy it away. It’s just there, and you have to survive it. You have to endure it. You have to live through it and love it and move on and be better for it and run as far as you can in the direction of your best and happiest dreams across the bridge that was built by your own desire to heal.
Your desire to heal has to be stronger than your desire to be right, seek revenge, or to enroll others into your distorted position. Take the time to notice your words that you share with others and see past the emotions of this moment and into the deeper psyche of yourself. When you can learn to see that what you say is reflecting your selfishness, immaturity, or distortion then you can begin to change it. If you look at your words and they seem like they are whining and complaining, stop, and take a look at your own wounded child that is still not grown up enough to take responsibility for your choices. Then internally seek out an adult aspect with better overview. Yes, it is often our inner child that was wounded and damaged. Yes, many of us do not realize that we are allowing a wounded, frozen aspect of our consciousness to control and comment on the reality. But it takes discipline to see that it is not healthy for yourself or the world to live your life from a damaged part of your psyche. Cultivate a more mature part and learn to let that voice with more perspective to express what you are feeling. Only in this way can that wounded child begin to heal. Only by being protected by a more mature perspective within you can that child feel safe. That wounded child did what it did to stay safe in a very unsafe moment. Stay aware of that child’s feelings inside but do not allow fractured parts in the subconscious to be in control of your life. When you mature past that reactive place of no impulse control of a child, then you discover that you can think before you react and your responses will be met with better understanding from others and inside your inner child will feel safe with you, be able to relax, and finally heal.
