Numerology/Astrology for 8/29/19
8/29/19 is the number 4. Sometimes the way to balance is by extreme imbalance. That seems to be the pattern of the world at this time. As we careen more and more into chaos and the destructive tendencies of the human condition and as we allow those in power to destroy this world in which we live, the precarious balance that had already been on a thread finally breaks and only now as the destruction of our future is clearly in sight do we realize the folly of our inaction. Wise ones have warned for centuries. Wisdom keepers in this present time have been trying to tell humanity that the course of their actions are killing this beautiful world. It is amazing that no one listens until the destruction is so vast and horrific that the egos finally relent as the recognize that the future of their children is now in doubt. Perhaps now, there will be a shift beyond acquiring money and wealth. Perhaps now, there is a moment when sanity demands action from the complacent. Perhaps now, the blind can see what really matters.
On Thursday, mental Mercury moves into Virgo to join the Sun, Venus and Mars. It is a perfect time to cleanse and purify your body, home, and office. For some you might finally be letting go of an upset, circumstance, personal relationship, or pattern that has been difficult for you to let go. As you let go you will notice the next amazing thing that shows up in your reality. It is by letting go completely that we discover what the universe had in store for us all along. It is our attachments to things in the past that limit our perceptions and choices as we move into the future. Notice what you are putting down and notice how much lighter you feel because of that. Just walk in the freedom of that feeling for as long as you can.
The Moon enters Virgo this evening bringing an even more critical eye to things. Notice what is your responsibility and do that.
The Moon in Virgo conjuncts Mercury in Virgo. This brings in some fresh approaches to those projects that you have been wanting to do.
Sun trine Uranus. Brings confidence and an independent free spirit. Let your personality shine bright and your individualism and self-expression focus you towards your goals.
While there is a Sun/Pluto challenge, you may feel the need to take control. But it is not quite in your hands yet.
Body is the bodhi tree
Mind is like clear mirror stand
Strive to clean it constantly
Do not let the dust motes land.
Bodhi really has no tree
Nor is clear mirror the stand
Nothing’s there initially
So where can the dust motes land?
Epic Battles from Chuang Tsu Stories – Translation by Derek Lin
Once upon a time in the Warring States period, the King of Wei was angered when he learned that the King of Chi had betrayed their alliance. Desiring revenge for this betrayal, he wanted to send an assassin to kill the King of Chi.
