Numerology/Astrology for 6/23/15
Today is the number 10/1. And let’s begin again. Yes, we are in the new beginning position and the doorway to personal power. You are required to stand up and take your place in the sun. We are officially in Summer and the warmth of the sky compels a new attitude of gratitude to open and flow. You create your own potential by your willingness to give things a try. Enthusiasm is naturally flowing and you will feel a deep desire to make a shift. For some of you that might be easier than others. Just remember that what you think you are going for is rarely where you end up. If you know that then you will not get upset or stressed as the universe continues to teach you some very valuable lessons. Those lessons are not about putting you in your place but more about putting things in their place. While the practical Virgo Moon today suggests a need for clear answers, Virgo’s ruler, Mercury, forms a hard aspect to Neptune. The kind of confusion and evasiveness this energy breeds is not a comfortable energy for a Virgo Moon, which likes to see everything in its place. You may not be thinking clearly under this influence, and technical facts can be glossed over today. Needless to say, it’s not a good time to make a presentation, to ask for what you want or to formalize agreements. An additional influence today is an awkward angle between Mars and Saturn, a quincunx, adding some hesitancy, guilt, or unrest to the mix. There can be awkward, stop-and-go energy. Attempts to force an issue tend to be thwarted. Indecision can hold you back from taking direct action, and this can be a good thing, as adjustments may need to be made.
“If you knew your potential to feel good, you would ask no one to be different so that you can feel good. You would free yourself of all of that cumbersome impossibility of needing to control the world, control your mate, or control your child. You are the only one who creates your reality. For no one else can think for you, no one else can do it. It is only you, every bit of it you.”
How often do you see someone in public do something that causes suffering for another and cause your own body to contract in shock and pain? What do you do about that? Today is the day to stand up for the innocent and to say something that is appropriate to interrupt the process that you are witnessing. I find the easiest way is to not engage in an argument but to notice the stress or suffering of another. If someone is lashing out they are hurt somehow inside. My first phrase is something like, “Wow! You seem really upset. Are you okay? Take a breath, slow down, and tell me how I can support you.” When you come from the place of acknowledging their hurt then they often shift. Remember anger is almost always deeply buried insecurity and hurt. Anger hides the hurt and feels more powerful to an insecure person than expressing depression or sadness. I often say (if they continue to rant), “Oh, my goodness! I am so sorry you are feeling so hurt. You must be just totally overwhelmed today.” It is shocking how fast that line of communication interrupts the pattern. Almost always we react to anger in defensiveness and that perpetuates the game and allows for the illusion to continue and then conscious awareness cannot come into the mix. To heal something you have to interrupt the knee jerk reaction and help them see their own suffering. Only by acknowledging the truth can healing happen.
