Numerology/Astrology for 7/8/16
7/8/16 is the number 6. Take this moment to reflect of what is deep within you. Each of you attempts to give your greatest gifts to others and there are moments when those gifts are accepted and others where you may feel that your gifts are not fully embraced. People can only integrate and hold what they are capable of opening to and holding from the place of where they have space and flow. When anyone is over the top in stress they are incapable of being fully present so that connection is not as strong as you might like. You cannot connect on deep levels of intimacy when someone is in fear or projecting their illusions on to you or others. It is up to you to create the space inside yourself by meditation, inner work, and spiritual tools that help your souls progression in this lifetime. Days like today are designed to be reflective and allow for the silence and inner clarity to restructure your priorities so that as you know your own center you can handle the chaos and upset that is a natural part of the external world. Venus forms a square with Uranus making some of your values or tastes clash. Impulsive attractions to both people and material goods could lead you astray. Avoid impulse buys at this time. Some instability, restlessness, and rebelliousness is probable in romantic relationships. As well, both Mercury and the Sun oppose Pluto today and tensions in relationships are highly likely, particularly as you can be over-excited about an idea or resistant to changing your mind or letting others’ input in. There is a strongly competitive theme to the day. It would be wise to observe whatever powerful feelings that confrontations or conflicts arouse, as the energies of the day can have a way of pulling to the surface suppressed issues and emotions. You may be insisting on knowing the “truth” or on exposing falsehoods, making mountains out of molehills. There can be some paranoid thoughts or excessive suspicion. This energy produces either a compulsive need to talk or a desire to withhold information. You can be dealing with issues of power and competition and there can be a feeling that external circumstances are undermining your own feeling of being powerful. In the process, you may be able to get in touch with your internal motivations. Outside forces can remind you of your need to take better charge of your life but shortcuts to gaining control will not work out well in the long run. This influence can bring a tricky or buried issue to a head. The Moon continues its transit of Leo until 6:42 PM EDT, when it enters Virgo.
Forgiveness breaks the chain of causality because he who gorgives you – out of love – takes upon himself the consequences of what you have done. Forgiveness, therefore, always entails a sacrifice.
