Numerology/Astrology for 8/3/16
8/3/16 is the number 2. There are always challenges in the mind when reality and your perception do not align. It is tricky at best to navigate all the energies as they move through life. The mind cannot be trusted to remember things or completely recall situations in life. That is because when the ego is creating fear in the body it will make up a story about a feeling to justify and validate that story. The feeling is an experience that you are having but is that experience real? The Buddha’s say, “You are not what you feel, you are not what you think, and you are not your body. You are a soul having an experience in a body. Bodies will die, feelings will change, and the mind will not exist beyond this dimension. That is why you have to learn to let things go. It is hard when you are attached to a black/white, good/bad reality. But it is essential for growth. Learning to let situations be what they were and to release the past as a process for your growth helps tremendously as you move forward in life. Yes, you see the duality but do you see how you have exacerbated some situation and how can you handle it with loving kindness and compassion? The Moon is in Leo Moving into Virgo and this hopefully will allow some structure and organization to move into the emotional flow that you are presently experiencing. Deal with the facts and make decisions on what you are really willing to put your time and effort into. Ask the question, “What is best for my body? Learning to let something go or pushing into something that will be a waste of time and energy?” The Moon continues to transit Leo all day, and you may be riding on the positive energy of yesterday’s New Moon much of the day. However, an early morning Sun-Neptune quincunx can leave us feeling a little out of step. Fear of being ineffective can undermine your confidence temporarily when it comes to making clear or definite decisions, and for doing new things. Others may seem to be draining your energy, especially if it’s unclear what they want from you. If we’ve neglected your spiritual needs, you may feel vaguely discontent now. As the day advances, confidence rebuilds. A Mars-Pluto semi-square can be felt as pressure placed on having your desires met. Desires can be on the intense side and difficult or complicated to satisfy.
“When you think everything is someone else’s fault, you will suffer a lot. When you realize that everything springs only from yourself, you will learn both peace and joy.”
~His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama~
What would happen if each of us began to recognize that blame is a crippling emotion that infects all those that it touches in a greater or lesser degree? What would happen if we each woke up and saw that often things that we think are being done to us are actually just illusions of our mind and that often the meaning of a situation that we feel caught in actually has another meaning other than the one we have given it? It is so very hard to step out of our own mind and ego and see from the eyes and experience of another. We become so attached to believing that we are right and needing to be right, and then needing to be validated that we are right. But I have found even once I get there, being right does not give me what I expected. Because each of us can misinterpret signs and signals and it is really impossible to have the whole picture. Slowly over time more and more pieces of information come together and we see that being right is a very narrow band of truth and that the greater truth is more vast and complex than just one person’s perception. Learn to relax, let go of what you think is happening and decide to transform your mind into its expanded potential. That will give you greater joy that being right in a singular moment.
