The energy is intense out there today. We know this. And not just the Eclipse (wouldn’t that be enough?) but Mercury (communications) retrograde (askew) square (difficult) Neptune (confusing) in Pisces (rose-colored glasses).
Were you looking for clarity? Were you looking for truth? Sorry! Here’s some emotional intensity instead 🙂
I am thinking about my mortality, about the body, about aging, about love, about Chiron in my 8th House (Scorpio’s House). Ya know, the usual around here, and I’m home, at my desk, looking at the weather. It’s rainy in the Big City and if I had to characterize the astro-weather, I’d call it rainy too 🙂
Let’s draw a few cards for the day…
1. You are taking on more than your share of the burden. This could be work, literally what is happening at work, and telling me that need to reframe your work! Someone once advised me to master the art of being elusive. I want to tell you the same. Slip through the eye of the needle. It could save your sanity. Of course this could also apply to worries and worrying. Same advice. Put it down. Actually see yourself doing this. A little escapism goes a long way…
2. And then, once you do that, your strength and focus can return. You release what is not yours so that what IS yours, what you are supposed to be doing, can come home.
3. There is a conversation you are supposed to be having with the Divine. Today.
And speaking of the Divine and in honor of the New Moon in Scorpio, this is what Isabel Hickey has to say about the 8th House, which is associated with Scorpio:
“Every Eighth House operation is a celestial messenger in disguise and a challenge to penetrate this disguise and become the recipient of the blessing he bears. In the wake of an Eighth House storm, there is always a rainbow if we but lift our eyes to perceive it.”
I am working on my Readings page, trying to explain better what I *do* here. Take a look!
