Numerology/Astrology for 3/15/16
3/15/16 is the number 9. The number 9 calls each of us out to let something in the past go, face your fear of the unknown future, and to find a new position where you can reconcile who you were in the past with who you are evolving into. All growth takes courage. All change is difficult at different points along the way. Face the limitations of your old self and shed that skin that is already falling away. Perceptions are just like an old skin that is beginning to flake off and peel away. Hanging on to it can make the situation worse. Let the old fall away naturally and find that new fresh reality that is right there ready to be reborn. Mercury opposes Jupiter and sextiles Pluto this morning. There can be a lot of excitement and enthusiasm about your ideas today, and some anxiousness to share them. However, you may be inclined to exaggerate or to attach greater meaning to those ideas and communications. You might overstate what you intend to say in the process. A Venus-Uranus semi-square around midday can point to a need for a change in your relationships, but you may not yet clearly see what needs to be improved or altered. Unusual attractions can figure now, to people, things, and situations. A First Quarter Moon occurs this afternoon, when the Sun in Pisces forms a square with the Moon in Gemini. There is a crisis theme surrounding any quarter Moon phase, as you feel compelled to take action. Shortly after, you are made aware of how your actions affect those close to you. Whatever project or initiative you began around the New Moon is now off the ground, and it may face its first in a series of obstacles. The Moon transits Gemini until 8:57 PM EDT, when it enters Cancer.
“In the middle of the journey of our life I found myself within a dark woods where the straight way was lost.”
~Dante Alighieri, Inferno~
“I have been studying the traits and dispositions of the “lower animals” (so called) and contrasting them with the traits and dispositions of man. I find the result humiliating to me.”
~Mark Twain, Letters from the Earth: Uncensored Writings~
There is no direct road to truth. Truth is a twisted unraveling of the kinks, beliefs, and shadows in your psyche that have been maintaining your old self. In the end, when we are at deaths door, each of us will have to surrender up totally all that we have known in this world in favor of an unknown potential. Our life gives us moments to practice that “letting go” experience because as a soul we can only encapsulate a certain level of truth for a particular vibration and density that we are still carrying. Enlightenment is a literal “lightening up” of those things that hold us in places that have outgrown their usefulness. Once again, on this day of the number 9 we get to practice the art of surrender. When you let everything go, what is truly yours will remain and what is no longer useful will float away.
