Numerology/Astrology for 5/7/15
We are in the expansion potential of the number 11 or you could contract down into the number 2. It will be your choice but I suggest always taking the higher road. As I look forward, I think it might be a good idea to practice now as June is full of a lot of retrogrades and so the energy is intense. I believe that the universe is always teaching us and giving us a foreshadowing of things to come and for some June is going to feel like a bit of a backslide. I like to think of it as a test. You learn something and then have to get retested to see if that is really the way you want to set some foundation stones in your life. So get ready as there is a bit of fine-tuning needing to go on right now. Do your best to stay in an expanded state of awareness. The Moon continues its transit of bold Sagittarius until 2:17 PM EDT, when it enters industrious Capricorn. Venus leaves Gemini and enters Cancer today, where it will transit until June 5th. In Cancer, Venus is nurturing, protective and self-protective, cautious, and fertile. You may experience many emotional ups and downs that affect those you love under this influence due to increased sensitivity and impressionability. You may feel tender-hearted, romantic, protective, and attached. Cancer love is dedicated, warm, and devoted. You may want to show your love through your devotion, care, and concern. Remember you are at your best when you feel safe and secure and your remind others that they too are safe and secure when they are in your presence.
Your light is seen, your heart is known, your soul is cherished by more people than you might imagine…If you knew how many others have been touched in wonderful ways by you, you would be astonished. If you knew how many people feel so much for you, you would be shocked…You are far more wonderful than you think you are… Rest with that. Rest easy with that. Breathe again. You are doing fine. Better than fine. You’re doin’ great. So relax. And love yourself today.”

This one really touched me today. I hope that you too can feel beyond this moment and feel into the love that constantly surrounds you. Re-discover your connection to a larger whole. Look back at the purity of your heart and soul. Know that you have made mistakes but that most of the time you were trying to do what you believed was right. Whenever you try to do something that makes a difference in the world there will be those who create conflict and controversy. I wish we lived in a world where that was not a truth but humanity resists change and we become attached to our perspective and our way of seeing the world. In the world of psychology the first step when presented with a new pattern or way is to resist, make wrong, or to find fault. Some people will never work their way out of that particular pattern and will spend their entire life only searching for the things that validate their perspective. They will ignore the facts when they are presented and will not want to move into another possibility. You can never make someone open to the possibility. You can only present that option and when they are ready allow them to see beyond their own experience and limitation. Only by seeing the possibility can change begin to unravel the present mindset. There is a true story about the Native Americans when they saw the first tall European sailboats. They had never seen a sail and so they only saw large canoes. It was only the shaman (those who were trained to look beyond the obvious and into alternative realities) who could see the sails. But if you took the people onto the boat and allowed them to touch the sails, only then could they actually see them. In this moment I want to remind all of us that we are blind to what is beyond our own knowing. We are defensive to anything that is outside our experience. We become stressed and exhausted when we are stretched outside of our box or of our normal reality. Instead of labeling it as bad and wrong, why not just say this was a stretch and it was exhausting to be pulled by an energy that was bigger than my reality set point. We are all tested by situations and circumstances that are beyond the norm. It is never easy for anyone. But it is also not bad. People are not bad if their circumstances move me beyond my comfort zone. And yet, humanity unfortunately constantly reacts in that way and from a place of righteousness. What can you do today to allow into a possibility? What can you do today to let go of your rigid control patterns that you project onto the reality and allow for an infinite possibility to emerge? Holding onto the patterns of control and right and wrong take a huge amount of energy. Find the freedom that openness brings. Find the renewal of your energy and spirit when you stop resisting other positions and perspectives. Then you can find that impassioned position of adventure and discovery again.
