Top reasons to be excited about the astrology right now…
* Change is constant, but we forget this and we tend to live our lives as though our ideas, our beliefs, our relationships, our talents and abilities, are capable of lasting forever…the truth is that with Mars coming through and igniting Pluto/Jupiter and Uranus in the weeks ahead we are about to be reminded, powerfully reminded, that change occurs everywhere, running through everything, and however destabilizing this might be, its blessing is that it awakens us to the flow of energy and life all around us….it reminds us that we are part of the flow of life and that we are being lived by powers of life that both animate and destroy every last thing that we believe ourselves to be or that we believe reality to be..rather than curse this, we can say yes to it and trust beyond rationality that this change is necessary….not necessary because of an end goal we need to figure out or will eventually reach, but necessary simply by virtue of it happening at all….
* Practically speaking, this is a fantastic time to allow our power or authority to be checked and balanced by others…to come into a much deeper understanding of our responsibility as we recognize more fully the diversity surrounding us. A powerful person is one whose direction of energy incorporates and empowers the passions, talents, and experiences of others. A powerful person is one who trusts others authority and others inner resources and vision. A powerful person is one whose power stems from their total confidence in the abdication of their power. A powerful person recognizes the effectiveness of other people’s power AS a function of their power too. A powerful person is one who recognizes that all power is in some ways impersonal…they recognize that great character and tremendous personality emerge like a strange flower in garden that absolutely does not belong to them.
* This is a day to watch as circumstances change, as doors close, and as portholes to new ways of being present themselves all around us. Which one will we step through today? Where do we place our hopes and which particular fear will we start to recognize as nothing more than a joyous invitation to the inevitable?
* This is a good time to remember that we live on a planet where each day we perceive two equally sized lights in the sky, despite the fact that they are radically different distances away from us. These two lights predictably eclipse one another. If we think about this long enough, with open hearts, these basic symbols tell us everything we need to know.
So hey guys….let’s kick the shit out of this eclipse day. Or let’s welcome it slamming us on the nose or whatever else it wants to do. Let’s dare to say, “more please,” as though all this craziness is one big, never ending “yes.” Why not?! Once in a while, why the hell not?!
Prayer: Eclipse us!!!! Woohoo!!!!
