Everything makes more sense now that you’ve arrived a place of quietude and relative stillness. Now that you’re observing the world from a slower vantage point, you’re able to notice beautiful little nuances that usually go unnoticed. The constitution of nature is comprised of some timelessly intricate patterns and they are sure to leave quite an impression on anyone who takes the time to notice and appreciate them.

Just as you are cognizant of life’s simple pleasure, you are also painfully aware of the painful complexities, such as oppression, injustice, and discrimination. It hurts your head to think that such cruelty exists, whether or not you experience it personally. Why can’t life be rainbows and butterflies?

Good companions are a god-send. Communicate your appreciative sentiments. Look out for them like the look out for you, because there are lot of people out there who suck.

If there’s a gathering, go! You are likely to encounter someone with a fresh perspective that could totally shift your orientation. Bouncing ideas could lead to collaborative experimentation, materialization of musings, or just a quick connection.

New acquaintances might know somebody who knows somebody who could help you advance toward the fulfillment of your wishes, so be open to putting yourself out there and expressing yourself in a way that demonstrates your qualifications. Continue reading

traveling mercies: saturn in sagittarius [#StarsAndSymbols]

Since I’ve moved cross-country to LA, making genuine connections seems at times like mission impossible. I just remembered Saturn [the planet of obstacles], is in Sagittarius [the sign of long distance travel]. May explain why I haven’t effortlessly acquired a whole slew of BFF’s.

In other words, anyone who has journeyed long distance, whether it’s long-term or for a quick getaway, is susceptible to some sort of setback with Saturn in Sagittarius. I send you all traveling mercies 🙂

On the plus side, Saturn’s delays and difficulties are just a reminder that real rewards do not come overnight. We’ve got to work and make an effort and leap over hurdles and learn lessons if we want long-lasting, substantial results. Where we find Sagittarius, we always find opportunities, but Saturn makes sure they are well earned. Dues must be paid.

Slow your roll freedom fighter, there is business to be handled. No, you don’t have to abort your mission, but for the sake of your ultimate objective, it is imperative that you are conscientious of what you’re doing. Although being tied down is the last thing you want to be, you have to make sure that your responsibilities are taken care of now so that you aren’t stuck paying for your procrastination later.

As you make progress along your journey, it may be tempting to put off your duties for another day, choosing instead to chase the temporary highs of quick stimulation with reckless abandon. Forgetting that there is work to be done will lead to needless emergencies, so save yourself the trouble and balance pleasure with discipline. Yes, you are in a new place where there is new information to take in, but focusing on the priorities with which you are faced will yield more rewards than giving into scattered fits of flightiness.

If you were a bit indecisive or scattered yesterday, you have arrived at a conclusion today. You probably had some time to rest, reflect, meditate, pray, think things through, weight your options, and most importantly listen to your heart. Now you know exactly what needs to be done to advance to the next level and intend to get to work immediately. The question is, will you do it?

You may be tempted to withhold your verdict to avoid a response of rejection, but remember that jumping to conclusions and projecting your assumptions is a surefire way to miss an opportunity to connect. A closed mouth simply does not get fed, just as a closed heart is unable to receive the love and support it so desperately needs. How can you expect to grow and if you’re holding on to the skin that you are meant to shed for fear of being cold and exposed?

If you feel something, say something. Speak up.  Being vulnerable and revealing your emotional truth doesn’t make you weak or any less competent. If anything, it makes you relatable, which will garner support. Yes, there is a possibility that you may not get the feedback you anticipated, but life goes on.  Continue reading

The atmosphere is electric. The vibe is genius. The people in your immediate environment are doing things you didn’t know were possible and doing them well. Even better, those same people are genuinely interested in your energetic offerings, even those weird, experimental projects about which you’ve kept quiet. Now you’re thinking new thoughts and speaking new languages with new friends who listen, observe, and respond in new ways. These stimulating exchanges are inspiring you to make exciting moves based on impulses you would’ve never dared to act upon in the past. Well, that was then, this is now, and your new journey is just beginning.

The abundance of possibility pervades the space, and you are ready to receive it all. Make sure though, despite all your excitement, you see clearly what you are getting yourself into. Be optimistic, but read the fine print. Continue reading

Moon [in Scorpio] opposite Venus [in Taurus]
Moon [in Scorpio] trine Chiron [in Pisces]

Gone are the days when you would allow an outside source take control of your affairs. You have your own voice and you are no longer afraid to use it. In all actuality, you don’t have to say much at all to get your point across. The poise you exude, which is both regal and fierce, speaks volumes. If there is work to be done, you are more than capable of calling the shots and handling your business.

confidence

If you were known previously as someone who was more passive than aggressive, The Others may be inclined to challenge, mock, or react defiantly against your attempts to assert yourself more directly. Conflicts may arise in your most intimate relationships, as you are evolving beyond the person you used to be. This evolution could pose a threat to the foundation of your partnership, as you have now outgrown the role you initially agreed to play. Allow not these interferences to deter you from expressing yourself freely, as this process is beneficial in the most therapeutic way.

“Love is made up of three unconditional properties in equal measure:

1. Acceptance
2. Understanding
3. Appreciation

Remove any one of the three and the triangle falls apart.”

There is something on your mind, but you’ve been hesitant to say it. If you’re not careful it could slip and cause a whole commotion, the very ruckus you were trying to avoid. Once it’s out, there’s no looking back, so be ready to stand by your word.

Fortunately, the atmosphere is buoyant with humor and provocative playfulness, so the likelihood of any significant verbal spars is small even if you say too much. Disagreement, if it comes to that, can be therapeutic, as expression is always better than repression. To be safe, dedicate a moment or two to meditative silence and stillness so that when you do communicate what’s been on your heart, you are able to speak from a place of total purity. The most important thing is that you radiate truth in all you do, because when you engage honestly with The Others, you have the potential to awaken alternative perspectives and provoke thoughts that could totally change someone’s life. Isn’t that a radical idea?

space-between-your-thoughts

Despite the interpersonal awareness that defined the recent past, you have little patience for people pleasing or superficial pleasantries today, which means that you will be you as unapologetically as possible. “Come as you are” is your mantra, and if they don’t like it, you don’t really care. Now’s your chance to live for yourself, because way too much time has passed with you putting other people’s needs before your own. Continue reading

The waters are choppy, but you have the power to steer your ship in the right direction, and you look good doing it. Your shipmates, including your own crew as well as the passengers you’ve picked up along the way, are amazed by your ability to go with flow and maintain some sense of direction. These people are likely to come to you to help them stabilize their own stormy situations. They trust you to guide them when they are lost at sea.

Man With Moral Compass In Head

Despite your apparently confident composure, your certainty as a captain may waver. Can’t these people see it’s a struggle for you not to swim in circles? Don’t know they that you too are blown away when there is too much wind in your sails?

If ever you are unsure of which way you are supposed to navigate, remember that the most accurate compass is your intuition, which will always be with you no matter where you wander. Continue reading
