Numerology/Astrology for 8/31/15
August 31st is the number 20. The world of duality is running the show so be ready for things not being what they seem for today. You will think you are going to get a particular thing but you are in an illusion and the Moon in Pisces is going to add a dramatic flair emotionally to the situation. It is essential to remember that what you feel is not really real regardless of how it is perceived. Anyone and anything can present itself in a particular way. That does not mean that when this astrological aspect is over that it will end up being that way. Today it is essential that you remain mentally critical of anyone and anything. Do not take things and believe them from how they appear. Because shortly you will discover that you have been deceived by your desire and wants. The Moon finishes its transit of Pisces at 4:34 AM EDT, when it enters Aries. The Sun opposes Neptune and retrograde Venus aligns with Mars. This creates a powerful creative energy but expect some confusing emotions to distort the potential of this energy. It’s easy to get lost in fantasy at this time, as we feel somewhat directionless and less able to face everyday realities. You may be letting someone else take the lead but you could misrepresent yourself now by giving up on the power you have been cultivating. You will feel more sensitive and vulnerable but also quite prone to misperceiving people or situations. Even so, your passion may feel stronger than usual. Relationships can be impassioned but perhaps demanding or vaguely unfulfilling, particularly if you are expecting too much from them. Impulsive purchases and flirtations that don’t have any staying power are possible now.
The finest souls are those who gulped pain and avoided making others taste it.
Are you one of those that tries desperately to avoid all pain and suffering or are you a courageous soul who recognizes that you can become a vehicle for transforming pain on this planet and shift that energy off the planet and into something else? I look at people that have made a great impact on earth and see a repeating theme. What these unique people have is the willingness to take some energy or pattern on and be willing to find a way to transform it into a better pattern. Often then you become the target for energy of ridicule, jealousy, and projection. It is these brave souls that gulp it down instead of collapsing back into a position of acceptance of the dysfunctional world. Those souls discover that energy is energy. Even ridicule is energy that can be used as a fuel to catapult something forward. Judge nothing. Recognize that all things have energy. Reject nothing. Instead look at ways of using what the universe if offering, discover the goldmine of energy that lies latent in all things. Gulp it down and discover how to use even the darkest thing as fuel for forward progression.
One of my favorite creatures in Buddhism is a Garuda. The Garuda is empowered to hunt down and banish any obstacles or negative energies within, opening up channels for success and happiness. I have included an image of one as a metaphor for learning to transform your personal negative energy into something powerful and uplifting.
