Numerology/Astrology for 8/7/15
Today is the number 5. It is time to get grounded and to really listen to your body. The number 5 is all elements that involve the physical world and in this moment your body. The stresses of the past few months have gotten you out of balance and now your body is letting you know that to move optimally you have to realign some structures in your life. It is not about pushing and shoving your way forward as much as it is about making yourself the priority. If you are drained then you really have nothing to give back to others. They when they ask you for help you are at your edge and the tendency to snap increases. You definitely do not want to do that so it is time for some TLC. Do something that allows your coping mechanisms to come back naturally. It would be wise to not have conversations if you are feeling exhausted or overwhelmed. Today, just let that call go to voice mail and get it when you are rested and ready to navigate the next energetic flow. Mercury aligns with Jupiter early into the day and our ideas are large. Today, you will see things in big ways. Mercury leaves Leo this afternoon, entering Virgo where it will transit until the 27th. With Mercury in Virgo, precision in speech, thought, and process is now important. This is a time when you analyze and decide what is useful and what may be impractical. Mercury feels right at home in Virgo, one of the signs that it rules. Dealing with details is natural and easy now. However, you need to be careful that you don’t lose perspective. Try to not get lost in details. You should also be aware of the possibility of expressing yourself in a too factual manner, so much so that you come across as dry, critical, or unimaginative. The Moon is in practical, sensual Taurus all day.
We gain strength and courage and confidence by every experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face… We must do what we think we cannot.
Boundaries are the topic today. Are you aware of where you are taking energetic hits from others? To me there is a huge difference between someone dumping his or her energetic stress or someone sharing his or her process and experience. On the first one you feel slimmed and it can literally feel like you are getting punched in the chest. Often the person does not realize that they are doing it. They are so upset that they cannot see how their energy is infecting others around them. They are desperate to get rid of this feeling or experience and so they unconsciously spew it in all directions. We have all been in a room with a person who is upset and even when you have nothing to do with the situation someone’s energy and mood can shut you down, make you stop breathing, or trigger you into some physical sensation or reaction. So, after that event, do you know how to let that energy go? Or do you somehow get stuck with that energy and instead it takes you time to figure out how to shift it and feel better. I have discovered in my life that there are particular types of energy that because of my own wounding are more difficult to let go of. So much so that even years later you discover that you are still carrying someone else’s energetic problem or signature. Today, really look at situations in which you find yourself. Notice if you are taking energetic hits. Then find ways to let that stress and energy go. Learn that those moments are there to remind you of where you are still healing. Pay attention and do the work to let those old wounds heal. When you do then you will no longer feel slimmed or feel that you are taking that energetic hit because it is no longer a reflection about you. It will become an observation only of another’s experience.
