Numerology/Astrology for 9/22/16
9/22/16 is the number 4. Today will take the qualities of patience, devotion, endurance, and mastery to build solid foundations for you to move forward. The level of personal commitment and determination you are going to need to get through to the next level is astounding so take it one step at a time and do not let the long term goal overwhelm you in the short term steps you are going to be required to constructively break through. It is going to take a lot of hard work and conviction to find the passion and drive you will need to complete the steps needed to break through. Sometimes you need a situation to be disrupted completely to see how you were still not growing in the way you need to become your soul’s potential. Only when you accept the changes that you are resisting completely and surrender your egos belief that it knows better can you break out of this gridlock that is paralyzing your movement forward. There is that phrase, “Argue for your limitation and sure enough it will be yours.” Take a look to see if you are fighting to hold onto your dysfunction in favor of a better and freer life. Only the place of objective balance can allow you to move out of the old and into the new. When you are unable to adapt in life you slowly begin to die. To have a life you have to move out of the places of complacency and into new things and be willing to change. Let change become your souls “home” base. Let change be the haven of your being. In that way you will put ideas into form and work becomes significantly productive. Thank goodness Mercury is finally out of retrograde and this frustration of dealing with one more thing that goes wrong will finally begin to shift. Just remember that we are still in the shadow of Mercury for 3 weeks and so there might be a few more glitches before the clarity completely comes into place. The Moon is in communicative Gemini all day. Gemini’s ruler, Mercury, turns direct today after retrograde motion that began on August 30th. Over the coming weeks, problems with communications and decision-making you may have encountered while Mercury was retrograde should start to improve. Plans or projects that have stalled might now resume. You might be flooded with energies that are hard to make sense of as the change takes place today, however, and thus critical decision-making might be avoided for the time being, as your thinking can be skewed. The Sun enters Libra today, where it will transit until October 22nd. Libra rules relationships with others as mirrors of yourself. Try meeting others halfway. Be willing to compromise. And recognize that negotiation is a better choice right now. The focus is on balance. Work to find the balance and harmony through art and relationships with others. Libra is the sign of the peacemaker. However, life is not always peaceful with Libra, as often it is attempting to restore balance. Decision-making can be more challenging while the Sun is in Libra. Libra weighs both sides of any situation, and sometimes this process seems endless! In Libra, the Sun is concerned about not rocking the boat and not rubbing others the wrong way. Tactfulness, style, tolerance, and sociability are some of the keywords for Libra. On the shadow side, Libra can be self-serving, indecisive, passive-aggressive, and superficial.
“She had no words that would lead those suffering out of the self created darkness that they were existing in. All she could be was the light shining in that darkness showing the doorway out. Yet there were those that preferred the screaming pain of their wounding repeating again and again in their mind over the quiet beacon showing the way out. She could not tell them that it would be okay. As long as they chose the old blame and suffering over the peaceful surrender of their past in favor of their potential they would remain stuck with a hurting heart. She could offer her hand but they had to be willing to walk through the door.“
What is change but to surrender the known
And allow yourself to explore alone.
There are doorways that only you can move through.
Only in that way can you be renewed.
Take a moment to let yourself see
Where your anger has turned into a banshee.
You can wail and you can howl but into the shadow you went
Choosing to let all your wounds ferment.
Yes, there is a death but not the one you think
It is the death of the ego that refused to shrink.
You cannot see what was lost in the storm
The wind and the rain still attempts to transform.
Only you can choose to open all eyes
And allow that deep wisdom inside to advise.
If it sounds like the old then the ego is still in play
If you attempt to justify you will keep the truth at bay.
Perhaps tomorrow you will tire of this game
And allow a new possibility to break through in the rain.
Yes, you will grieve and yes, you will cry
But the only way through is to let go of the lie.
That lie that limits your true heart from being seen.
That lie that needs to be removed and cleaned.
Only when you accept your fate
Can the crooked path of your life become straight.
