The Sun On Sagittarius 4: A Little Child Learning To Walk With The Parents’ Help
The Sun today is on Sagittarius 4: A LITTLE CHILD LEARNING TO WALK WITH THE ENCOURAGEMENT OF PARENTS
For some, this is a fabulous degree of feeling nourished, guided and protected on our path. Somehow we may be feeling the need to ‘get back up and walk forward again’. We could be feeling the need to be encouraged to keep going, to keep learning. We may be helping those around us, whether younger or older, to cope with life, to get their everyday chores done, to feel like they are gaining ground in some way.
On the other hand, especially with the Sun squaring Neptune over the next few days, we may be wondering where the ‘encouragement’ or ‘guidance’ is… perhaps we feel like there is none – that we have to be our own ‘parents’ on every level. Further, in the media and on my feed on FB, all I saw for scores of posts was stories about Bill Cosby, a father-figure who should feel safe to trust… an icon that we should feel comfortable about, someone we looked up to, perhaps, in our younger years. Oh my how we can have the wool pulled from our eyes…
This Symbol implies the necessity of those older to be teachers, exemplars or guides to the younger or less experienced. The “Child” needs the “Encouragement” of “Parents” in order to feel supported or guided. At times in your life, you are likely to fulfill the roles of child or parent to others. As you learn and grow, you may move into new phases of learning that, despite all your previous experience, are surprisingly difficult. Patience and step-by-step progress is needed, as is a guiding hand and a kind word or two. There may be those around you that don’t take your difficulties or responsibility seriously, but your struggles will pay off, particularly if you care and share.
Genuine progress. Instinctive determination. Feeling mother earth under your feet. Taking delight in the smallest progress. Teachers, parents, children. Driving schools.
The Caution: Relying on skills that are not mastered. Not taking the initiative. Preferring being at risk rather than accepting help. Being left alone. Tripping others up.
