Numerology/Astrology for 1/17/16
January 17th is the number 9. The journey of the fool is all about understanding that life is all about beginnings, middles, and endings. In your life you will do thousands of those sequences. What is essential is to understand when you are at the point where you have to let things go. Today that is again where we are at a point of completion. This is a place where you need to see that what was is no longer and it requires of you a leap of faith to let the old go and to embrace the new, the unknown, and the unfamiliar. It is not necessarily a bad thing it is just that reminder that the cycles of life continue and in those moments of surrender you discover a deeper part of yourself. When you let go, you never let go of your essence. You are being asked to let go of a false self, a reality that is no longer true to your expansion and joy. In truth it is an opportunity to connect with the deepest part of your core. To come back to those things that are most important to you. Yes, you will have to let an illusion go but coming home to yourself is worth it. Even though the astrology is moving towards a Jupiter Square this weeks and squares tend to create irritation choose to keep a calm and cool head. It is a practice to focus on the positive qualities of life. There is always something to complain about but at this point you should be tired of hearing the whining. I choose to not let the thoughts that want to find fault to come out in my mouth. At least I try to do that to the best of my ability. Today is again a moment for practice of that art of communication. Today’s theme is to assert (Mars) compassion (Neptune). There are many out there who are holding a narrow-mindedness that is perpetuating the suffering on the planet. Choose to not be one of those contributing to the dysfunction. The Moon finishes its transit of Aries at 12:49 AM EST when it enters Taurus. Become more aware of the world around you. Pay attention to the five senses under this influence. Earthy activities and sensual pleasures appeal now more than usual. There is a sense of peace and contentment when you work with that which is familiar and reliable. This evening, Venus forms a semi-square with Mars, and is also moving into a square with Jupiter. Mars will also semi-square Jupiter early tomorrow, so that Mars is at the midpoint of the Venus-Jupiter square. This is a very sociable, fertile, relationship-oriented time, but can also be a time of some indulgence and excess. Entertaining can be in focus. Competitive feelings experienced now can be stimulating and invigorating. Feelings of elation in love or with regards to the pleasures of life can lead you to overdo, overindulge, overspend, and overstate your feelings. Mars is moving into a trine with Neptune, however, which can soften the rough edges. Creative energy is strong now. All and all this is a week were you might feel like you are making (albeit) slow but steady progress. So just keep doing what surfaces right in front of you and you will see by the end of the month the huge progress that has happened in your inner world and how that is infusing the outer world with a new and fresh potential.
“Circumstances don’t make you, they reveal you. The cards you are dealt in life do not determine the outcome of the game. It’s how you play your hand that counts. The world is filled with examples of extremely successful people who, by the hand they were dealt, should have been failures. Helen Keller, Anne Frank and Abraham Lincoln are good examples. There are no spectators in the game of life, only players.”
I am getting ready for the big wet weather here in northern California. It is hitting tonight at about 11 pm! They say it is a big one. This weather is an interest marker for all the amazing and talented people who have been dying in the last week. I always find that interesting that it is as if a doorway opens and many great souls all leave at approximately the same time. Then we have this storm with this huge energy shift of an El Nino and it makes things seem more poignant. There is a divine dance of death and rebirth happening right now. How are you dancing with that energy? How are you a part of the powers that are shifting? Can you allow this great energy to flow you into a new space? Surrender and discover something.
