Numerology/Astrology for 8/22/16
8/22/16 is the number 3. Positivity abounds and there is a change in the intensity and stress level that has been affecting you for a long time. Things are finally looking up and there is the feeling like something better could begin to come your way. There is still a lot to do and there are many things on your plate but dealing with them seems more natural now. Mercury aligns with Jupiter this morning, which can help you visualize in broader terms and see the “bigger picture”. You feel much more optimistic than you have in a while, allowing you to attract positive circumstances, although your enthusiasm might lead to exaggeration of facts. Expressing yourself verbally comes easily, and public relations and negotiations run exceptionally smoothly. This is a time for making long-range plans, seeing the big picture, and thinking about what is truly important to you. The Sun enters Virgo shortly after midday, where it will transit until September 22nd. Your focus shifts to dealing with the pieces of the puzzle–the little details that need to be handled. It is now time to take care of practical concerns. Tending to the details of daily living may not sound like loads of fun, but it can certainly free you from unnecessary stress that results from “collecting” odds and ends of unfinished business. This is an ideal cycle in which to get organized and to improve communications on the job. There can be some tension this afternoon and tonight with the Sun in minor challenging aspect with Pluto and a tense aspect between Mars and Uranus close to exact. You could find yourself questioning others’ motives, and restlessness can take hold if you haven’t been pursuing your desires.
There is power in your potential but to access it you have to step into that space.
You cannot love without those moments of pain. It is the love that opens us up and in that openness is innate vulnerability. That vulnerability is the cost of openness. That open heart is what makes love so special. You cannot love and have a protected heart. You can have affection but not true love. Can you see where you are being fully loving? Are you aware of where you are still protecting your heart? What kind of depth do you want to experience in this life? To die with never experiencing the fullness of love would be like never eating a fully ripe peach. Your soul should become unafraid to be obliterated by the power of love. You want the refining fire of your love to burn away all things that are the self deceiving illusions that keep you small and afraid. Yes, it will be at times a painful process. Letting go of the egos protective lies is always a painful lesson to learn.
