Numerology/Astrology for 8/5/16
8/5/16 is the number 4. Balance has to be fought for, to be maintained. Balance in life is a constant push and a pull. It is through addressing the tension that you learn to feel into what creates balance in your life. Pushing constantly is never what will create balance. Pushing creates overwhelm and overrides your more delicate and subtle sensibilities. From such a position you can never drop into bliss. You can never find the doorway to balance. You only find the places you have not succeeded. Balance allows for a more neutral perspective for the mind to embody. Balance allows for calm objectivity. Balance is the way of all things and when you choose a life of balance you discover a self that you always like. The Moon is in Virgo all day. Venus enters the sign today and will transit Virgo until the 29th. This is a time when you express your affection through practical means and gestures–running errands, doing detail work, or just “being there” for loved ones. Love needs to make sense and have a purpose with Venus in Virgo. Virgo is an Earth sign, which is sensual but also quite practical. How and who you love, what you decide to buy, and the types of entertainment you enjoy during this cycle are heavily influenced by practical considerations. You could easily feel guilty if you are too self-indulgent at this time. Rendering services to others can fill a need. On the shadow side, you may be overly critical of business partners or yourself, picky, or worrisome. Venus forms a minor challenging aspect with Pluto today, and there can be some underlying tensions in social interactions (looking for an ulterior motive and suspiciousness) and relationships (possible jealousies). Feelings of jealousy and possessiveness can be brewing just under the surface of things, and they are in direct proportion to your fear of losing something or someone dear to you. Manipulation can color relationships.
“In the face of distortion and judgment, she opened her heart to be eaten by the fear of the other. She knew it was only by giving the fear what it wanted would it finally taste the bitter ash of its own destruction.”
Learning to step out of personal triggers and see beyond our own agenda is difficult but essential to finding your own center and happiness. Today, step out of the circumstances that are manifesting upset in your life. Look inside to your deepest heart knowing. Feel into the love you carry and attempt to share that with others. Yes, you will fail. Yes, you will make mistakes. But you cannot live a life when you are afraid of allowing others to see your deepest self. We are all in a process of evolution. What you focus on is what you cultivate and create more of in your life. What are you obsessed with? Where is your mind constantly focusing? Does that focus allow you to cultivate more love or more separation, pain, and distortion? It is up to you to reign in the mind’s constant desire to find fault in others and to project that blame outside. After all, there is no “outside” there is only you.
