Numerology/Astrology for 4/28/16
4/28/16 is the number 5. The number 5 helps all of us to feel a bit more grounded which is helpful as the astrology (specifically Mercury) is going retrograde later today. It is always better to have your feet firmly planted on the ground if you know there is going to be a shift happening. Today is a day to feel downward and into your feet. It will feel as if there is so much to do so don’t let the energy get ahead of you. Just do what is right in front on you. If you notice the house is a mess then begin to clean that up. If a closet is bothering you with its lack of organization it is time to de-clutter and clear it out. If you feel inwardly stressed it is probably a great idea to go for a walk and put your feet in the dirt. What you notice is the next thing on the list to do in the earth plane. And while you are doing it, relax. Life is always about one more thing to do. This is not an ideal day for clear decision-making. A semi-square between the Sun and Chiron can undermine your confidence as you may fear being different or doubt your experience. Venus in dynamic aspect with Jupiter can serve to exaggerate your feelings, wants, and perceived needs. You might overstate your feelings or promise more than you can deliver. Cloudy thinking or experiencing confusion can figure strongly today with Mercury moving to a station and turning retrograde. Communication can be tricky, and it can be hard to focus on cold, hard facts, especially if you have been fuzzy in recent days. Mercury will remain retrograde until May 22nd. During this time, your thinking is turned inward, as you review and re-assess matters. Mercury retrograde periods can be times of heightened inner awareness, when meditation, benefiting from keeping a journal, reworking old plans, and reviewing past work are favored. Minor breaks in the mechanical aspects of communication can actually re-connect you to other, and possibly more meaningful, ways of communicating. The more difficult times are the periods of the shifts themselves which is where we are at today. After this moment you can grow more as you become accustomed to the new energy pattern.
He believed that if he took apart her wings she would have to stay. That if he filled her head with thoughts of a better tomorrow she would never leave. What a fool he was to believe she needed wings to fly.
I woke up this morning to the soft pitter-patter of rain on the roof. It was so lovely. The crisp clean air caught my breath and the clouds enveloped the house like the protection of angel wings. There is so much about life that is hard but there is also so much about life that is a miracle and when I look at both I see the balance innate in nature. Then I strive to find the acceptance of that balance within myself. What is calling for you to spring into? What does your soul want to expand more of into your life? And how can that journey become a daily adventure into learning how to thrive while being alive?
