Numerology/Astrology for 2/18/15
Today is the number 10. You should be feeling lucky today. Your energy will be up and you can recognize the needs of others around you and your capacity to make a difference. Your personal power and individual creative instincts give you the confidence, independence, and determination to succeed in the ways your heart wants to express itself. A New Moon occurs today at 6:47 PM at the very tail end of the sign of Aquarius, and the Sun enters Pisces within the next minute. A New Moon occurred on January 20th at the very beginning of Aquarius. It is a great time to extend a friendly hand to others, receive support, and express love for those in your life; give your intense emotions and passions a temporary “break”, as it is time to develop more objectivity and some detachment from the past situations that have been haunting your mind in a continual loop of emotional drama. Instead learn how something (or someone) works; revitalize your energy through experiences that are new or simply different; reach out to people in your immediate social circle and recognize the value of your friendships. With this potent Aquarius energy, you have the chance to make progressive changes in your life. It might be time put an end to something. A New Moon brings a fresh start, but as it occurs so late in the sign of Aquarius, there can be a real sense of urgency to make a quick decision or to end a matter so you can move forward. All New Moons are impulsive, and this one may be especially so. The Sun transits Pisces until March 20th. With the Sun in Pisces, you will feel guided by altruistic feelings. You will feel less motivated to do redundant things and are likely to want to feel, imagine, and dream instead. A “what will be, will be” attitude reigns, and you are guided by a sense of universal correlations. Pisces rules empathy, selfless love, devotion, and wisdom. If you let the shadow side of Pisces rule you will feel self-pity, a feeling of being victimized by life, passivity, and elusiveness.
“I sit before flowers hoping they will train me in the art of opening up. I stand on mountaintops believing that avalanches will teach me to let go. I know nothing but I am here to learn.”
In life you do not need to know how to do something you only need to be willing to learn. Sometimes just being willing to learn is a very difficult step. To do that you have to let go of what you think you know and step out of your ego and become like an hollow bamboo, receptive, bendable, and in the flow of the energies all around you. I love the metaphor of the hollow bamboo. It is a Buddhist metaphor and I love to contemplate what being still, grounded, hollow on the inside, in the flow of nature, and in connection with the winds of change all around me, would feel like. In my life feeling that emptiness and holding that place where I am willing to be filled is a challenge. Today, feel into that place of open and empty. Let the universe fill it. You do not always need to know. Most of the time you just need to be open to what the universe is offering.
