Here’s a Daily Rave – some thoughts on what’s going on now:-
The current astrological themes are very interesting – with an emphasis placed on relationships of all kinds along with realisations and breakthroughs that can come now about our place in the scheme of things. Taking some time out today to really think about what you want to be doing and how you might go about welcoming or accepting some changes in your life can bring some very interesting insights. Especially as…
The Sun degree is Pisces 16: IN A QUIET MOMENT, A CREATIVE INDIVIDUAL EXPERIENCES THE FLOW OF INSPIRATION
This Symbol shows the ability, or the need, to be able to quieten the mind, to spend some time in “Quiet’ contemplation, to allow for the “Flow of Inspiration”. Inspiration is a stimulation of the mind or emotions to a high level of feeling or activity. During many times in your life, you’ll find the flow of inspiration coming through if you allow it to and the more creative you allow yourself to be, the more inspiration will be in the messages. You may find that with each idea or creative inspiration there follows another and another. This signifies taking time to relax and go with the flow neither fighting against nor pushing forward. Closed minds and fixed attitudes will not help.
Inspired creativity. Openness to higher forces and ideals. Inspiration realized.
Dreams. Art, music, writing. Messages from higher self or from God. Meditation. Quiet moments.
The Caution: Being too tired, only sleeping. Lots of ideas that don’t translate into reality. Loud voices in the head. Wild goose-chases. Schizophrenia. Shutting off from others.
Mars and the Moon’s south node are conjunct (together) on Aries 11: THE PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC, OR THE RULER OF ONE’S COUNTRY
This can bring about some very deep and transformation realisations about the need to be in charge of your own life. There can be some insights and breakthroughs about how you (or someone close to you) have perhaps given away your power to others, or to situations, events, memories or whatever, and these things can keep you locked to the past. Mars is saying it’s time to break free of these outdated situations, memories or relationships, and to find a sense of personal power in amongst it. There can be a very strong ‘karmic’ feeling about this period with Mars and the Moon’s south node together. It’s time now to rewrite the book, to rewrite the story.
This Symbol shows that it’s time to take charge, to expand your base of operations and to show that you have the integrity and the necessary energy to get things done. It’s also about bringing a sense of order and discipline into your life – physically, spiritually or emotionally. Find your sense of inner power and make it work for you so others don’t lord it over you. Be in control of your own destiny and individuality.
Developing willpower. Receiving recognition. Discipline of thoughts, emotions and actions. Being in charge of your own life. The democratic process.
The Caution: Taking control, lording it over everyone, being overbearing. Egotistical and self-centered. Undermining others through a lack of awareness or self confidence.
For many, there’s a need to rise above feelings of failure and wasted energy. There can also be a need to reassess your life. What could you be doing to improve your life? To make your chances at success and happiness for more likely to bear fruit.
Mercury is on Aquarius 21: A WOMAN DISAPPOINTED AND DISILLUSIONED, COURAGEOUSLY FACING THE FUTURE
This Symbol shows the ability, or the need, to be “Courageous” in the face of “Disappointment” or Disillusionment”. The “Woman” may have always thought things would be different but one day she wakes up to find that her dreams have not born fruit as yet. Still, there’s always hope and faith that things will turn around and get better. There can be feelings of wasting energy, and thoughts of failure, but being strong and vigilant against negative thoughts can turn situations around quickly. It always helps to look on disappointment as a teacher. Reconnect with what is available and possible, and, although it requires courage to get back on track, we always return with greater wisdom and understanding.
Breaking through illusions. Facing reality. Loneliness and depression overcome. True grit. Maintaining a sense of purpose. Positive outlooks. Counting one’s blessings. Rebirth.
Caution: Wallowing in failures. Feeling all is lost. Not seeing the joy and beauty in your life. Giving up. Relationship battles. Staring into space. Being a sad, old person. Loss.
Contrary to how the above degree reads, this period does not have to be about failure and loss, it is most likely more about reassessing, fine tuning, making decisions, deciding that you want the rest of your life to be happier, more fulfilled, freer – perhaps safer in some way?
On top of that lot is Venus on Aries 17: TWO PRIM SPINSTERS SITTING TOGETHER IN SILENCE
This Symbol shows that quiet withdrawal might be just what you need, but it is easy to become isolated in conservative, albeit moral, ideas. You may find that there is only a select, restricted group with whom you wish to associate. Be wary that this false sense of security doesn’t isolate you from change and growth. Unresolved issues can lead to stunted emotional responses. Look for opportunities to open up to new possibilities.
Loosen up emotional blockages. Holding onto ones original identity. Not wanting to compromise because of social expectations. Relationships that have a “quiet knowing”.
The Caution: Emotional insulation. Refusing relationship. Pretending to be something. Disapproval of younger, more vital energies. Being fussy and judgmental.
Is there someone or are there situations where you feel you are not being heard? That you can’t communicate with someone? Perhaps you should be communicating more with someone? Is it that you keep having the same old conversations with someone, leading to boredom and not talking about the real issues that are facing you or them?
Jupiter and Uranus are trining each other now… this is fabulous… seeking freedom and the ability to express your individuality can lead to all kinds of good things.
The trick is not to fall into the traps that Mercury and Venus can be presenting now… rather, be encouraged and put forward a very positive energy – change any thoughts of loss and failure and disappointment into gratitude and enjoyment and hopeful anticipation that the future is full of all kinds of good things.
The time is now… we are leaving the Uranus/Pluto square that’s been with us for almost three years. De-stress and feel goodness and hope filling you up and see what happens…. the coming new Moon is a fabulous solar eclipse containing all kinds of promises – and – it’s smack on the Equinox – what a way to launch head long into the future.
