Numerology/Astrology for 2/9/16
February 9th is the number 11. Expansion of your old beliefs and patterns of behavior is finally happening. That kink you have been dealing with for a while is loosening and that grip of anger and resentment that has held you so tightly for so long is beginning to soften and relax. There is great relief when you finally let go of an old position or perception. There is so much that life offers and so often we cut our self off from the things that have given us joy because of feelings of betrayal, shame, or abandonment. These emotions are the key to finding freedom in this life. All of us have these emotional experiences. How we handle them and how we learn to see past that moment and into the future outcome that will have taught us something such as compassion, acceptance, understanding, and wisdom is really what it is all about. It does not matter what happened, so laboring the facts and fighting over something that happened based on your perception is rarely completely accurate. What is important is the story that you tell yourself so you can sleep at night or so you can maintain your emotional position of defensiveness, protection, and refusal to open in love. Today, let all the positions dissolve and see the wisdom you have gained based on a situation that stressed you deeply. The Moon continues its transit of Aquarius until 3:32 AM EST, when it enters Pisces. The Pisces Moon is compassionate, understanding, deeply feeling, and adaptable. Mars forms a trine with Chiron today, and you may have the opportunity to take the lead or to take action, regarding matters that lead to healing, cleansing, or teaching. This Moon heralds a change in attitude and the emotions surrounding it. You may also feel a sense of your deeper mission now. There is likely to be a feeling of fearlessness when it comes to addressing problem areas and self-confidence as well. There is a drive to take positive action, usually to defend or help others. It’s a strong period for cooperation and purposeful activity. With Venus and Jupiter moving towards a trine as well, exact early into the day tomorrow, you are more inclined to cooperate and to share your happiness with others. Integrity and loyalty are favored. Speculation, advertising, publishing, and travel are generally favored as well.
Giving away our right to choose how we wish to perceive the world serves to empower others over us. This, in essence, is the crux of social control and is the mechanism constantly used by the old mythology models of competition, conquest, and control.
The ability to see past an upset and into the good that a situation or event is essential for learning to live a happy life. In Mario Martinez’s book, “The Mind/Body Code, he talks with Centenarians about life. One of my favorite stories (And pardon me if I get some of the exact facts wrong as it was years ago I read this book.) He is talking to a man over the age of 100 and this man had lost his sight in his 60’s somewhere. They asked the man how that was to loose his sight for the last 40 years and that it must have been very difficult. “Oh, No!” The man said, “It was wonderful!” When asked what was wonderful about it, he said, “Well after I lost my sight I could not tell who people where so I got to touch them to see who it was and that was wonderful to be able to touch women at my age.” Notice that he was very good at reframing a situation into something that allowed him to find great joy in a circumstance that to others would have felt like a lose. How can you today do the same about a situation in your life? Can you see the positive in what appears to be a negative outcome?
