Numerology/Astrology for 7/14/16

7/14/16 is the number 3. Yes, it is difficult to stay positive right now but that is what you need to do. Learning the art of temperance is difficult but the moment to work towards that is right now when it is the most difficult. There is a reason for everything in life and just because you do not like what you see in the outer world does not mean that there is not method to the apparent madness. It is only much later that you can see the subtle energies that wove through your challenges so that you could discover a part of yourself that you did not know you had. You learn to value what you work towards. You value what was difficult to create and maintain. Learn to create a positive mind in a negative world. Learn to value the effort it takes to find the gem that is hiding in the mud of your life. Do not deny the negative but do not give it more value that it deserves. Mars and Uranus form a quincunx early into the day, and your efforts to satisfy your desires can miss the mark, and you may need to make the necessary adjustments to your plans. The Moon continues its transit of Scorpio all day, aligning with Mars and harmonizing with Pluto, Jupiter, the Sun, and Chiron. These influences are stimulating and supportive. Good energy is with you for connecting, healing, research, family and domestic matters, and purposeful work. The Sun and Mercury are parallel today, so while there is a strong focus on feeling things out, you are also placing quite a bit of importance on the mental plane.

Here is Ralfee Finn’s Weekly update. I thought it was valuable to share.

July 13 – 19, 2016

The tsunamis of change just keep pounding the shores of daily life, and finding higher ground continues to require enormous effort, both individual and collective, effort that needs to occur simultaneously in several dimensions—physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Very few are unaffected by the initial rush of these powerful waters. Most of us experience a deep impotence as we face the emergency tasks at hand. Yet where we are needed most is in the aftermath as the waves recede and the destruction becomes visible.

All of us have the power to change the world—all of us—because as we know, the world changes one heart at a time. There is no way to rationalize away violence and its consequences. The best use of our concern is to understand the causes of violence and do our best to eliminate the conditions that feed it. This is something each and every one of us can do, because we can all eliminate violence in our individual lives, the violence that lives in our emotional bodies and is expressed through our thoughts, words, and deeds.

To place our current situation in an astrological context, we need to review history. We are in a cycle that began in the mid-Sixties, when Uranus and Pluto formed a conjunction in Virgo that was exact in l965-1966, a time we recognize as a period of enormous upheaval in all areas of life, but particularly for the Civil Rights Movement and all the movements for social justice. (For those interested in correlating astrological cycles with historical ones, Uranus/Pluto signatures are always present at times of social unrest—you can read more about this in Cosmos and Psyche by Richard Tarnas.) Uranus represents revolution, and its presence catalyzes stagnant waters in need of change. Pluto represents change at the core—it signifies the process of transformation from one substance to another. And when Uranus and Pluto work together, they facilitate the necessary upheaval to engender a new paradigm. The consequences of this dynamic and difficult conjunction can be seen in the aftermath of the exact contact: During the late 60s and 70s, culture shifted around the world. We are still reeling from those changes.

In astrology, conjunctions between and among the outer planets, such as Uranus and Pluto, commence a cycle. (To place this in the reality of what we can see, think the cycles of the Moon.) From June 2012 to March 2015, there were seven exact squares between Uranus and Pluto, and those squares are the equivalent of a first quarter Moon in the cycle that began in the 60s. Squares signify friction. We are now in the aftermath of the fractious changes that occurred during this period of squares. The seven tsunamis of those three years are receding and the debris is what we are dealing with today as we struggle to cope with extremism becoming mainstream and the violence that engenders. While some are still reeling from the debris of the conjunctions of the 1960s, even more are reeling from the debris of the last couple of years.

One significant factor unique to our current situation is how rapidly information is shared on so many platforms. We witness these events in present time—they are no longer happening somewhere else. They are happening right before our eyes. We can witness the death of another human being, the blood of a fellow traveler as it spills out on our smart phone. It is horrifying. It is terrifying. It is unbearable.

Our fear and grief ought to be a call to action, not a call to reaction, but a call to marshal our forces for non-violent solutions. We know that the causes are far deeper than one issue—racism is real and has causes on both sides of the divide, causes that are fundamentally economic and educational. The cynical, amoral, capitalist political perspective that is only interested in preserving power is aimed at keeping poor people divided against each other on the basis of color. You can exploit everyone—white and black, young and old, male and female—if you can turn someone else into an enemy. When people are divided against each other they can be manipulated on the basis of fear. Those of us who recognize this must find positive ways to inspire the courage it will take to remedy this polarization.

Gandhi said that poverty is the worst kind of violence, something we should all think about as the gap between the rich and poor continues to widen into an abyss. According to Pat Buchanan in the documentary The Day the Sixties Died, the Republicans knew they had lost the culture war but they were clear that they had won the political battle of the 60s, 70s, and 80s, particularly as many Democrats, disturbed by change, attached themselves to the Republican Party to form the silent majority.

History repeats itself. But as the Maya knew, history repeats itself along a spiral, which allows for variation and, I hope, growth. We encounter the same situations but we don’t have to react habitually. We can reach for greater understanding, which we must do if we are to survive these waves and their aftermath.

I know many read this column as a kind of weather forecast, and so each week I try to provide a look at the astral currents. But we are in the midst of a gigantic storm and we need to remember that our individual lives are affected by that storm. We also need to remember that each of us affects the storm by our ideals and intentions as well as how skillfully we integrate our principles into action.

As the tsunamis and their aftermath continue—and these storms will continue for a while—do your best to hold fast to the notion that you can affect positive change simply by turning your respect for life into compassionate action, even when that means stepping into the shoes of the ‘other’—a refugee, a child, a black man or woman, or any person of any color, or a cop, or your enemy. We are all in this together and violence against each other simply won’t work. Love will. And while most of us know that, we need to turn that knowing into action.
