Numerology/Astrology for 4/17/15
Today we are in the number 20. With this number you may feel as if you are either in great need of help or you will find that you are the one giving the help to those in great need. The polarity of positive and negative is feeling extreme and the desire to find a balance is just as strong of a need. There are moments when you have to bear the burden of karma and allow the intensity of the wave to pass you by. Do not harden your heart into the weakened position of negativity. Stay strong and believe that eventually the karma works its way through the density of ego. Remain in a state of flexible possibility. Pluto goes retrograde until September 25. This will allow you to reflect on all the changes that have taken place over the year. Between the number 20 and the transitional state that Pluto requires you to move through it may feel as if you are lost in a fog of unknown outcomes. The growth now is about acknowledging that you are in a pattern of rigorous transformation.
“The capacity to be alone is the capacity to love. It may look paradoxical to you, but it is not. It is an existential truth: only those people who are capable of being alone are capable of love, of sharing, of going into the deepest core of the other person—without possessing the other, without becoming dependent on the other, without reducing the other to a thing, and without becoming addicted to the other.”
But let there be spaces in your togetherness and let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
I love this quote. Learning how to be in the authentic space of fluid love without the neediness is the challenge of maturing in the art of intimacy. You have to know yourself before you can know what you have as a gift to offer another. When you know your own alone-ness and can stand in peaceful observance of it, then you have the capacity to dive into depth and passionate connection with another.
