Numerology/Astrology for 2/5/17
2/5/17 is the number 8. As the planetary sadness continues to escalate it is a moment to put your feelings into perspective and find a place to stand in resolution with it all. The reality is that deep emotions are being felt and are going to continue to be felt. The only way through is to chip away at that stone structure that you believe is your truth and get to the underlying real truth that you have been avoiding. For each person that will be different but the external world reflects your internal unresolved self. This will be a long path of exposing the faces behind the masks, the truths from the lies, and the illusions from the reality. Some people have been living in a non-reality bubble for so long that they believe their reality is the only one. But that is never the case and it is the honest confrontation of our ego’s self-deception and sabotage that can be shocking. What you project onto others if often what you are doing internally to yourself. When you finally realize that it can be a humbling experience. It can make you question all the rules of reality that you believed existed. And that is a good thing. Often sadness is the only thing that can break you out of ego and into the compassionate heart that you have been afraid to show. Sadness shows the fear and vulnerability that you have been afraid to recognize.
The Moon is in Gemini all day and stimulating your mental curiosity. The Gemini Moon harmonizes with Mars in Aries this morning, awakening your impulses and stirring our passions in pleasant ways (which is especially good after the last few days of intensity). This influence encourages taking action on your feelings. Take your time because today you are both resourceful and independent. The Moon’s square to Neptune late afternoon can stimulate wistfulness or emotional confusion. You make a detour from the middle road now. Jupiter moves to a station as it gets set to change directions. Jupiter’s retrograde starts early tomorrow and will last just over four months. During this cycle, slowing down projects or plans may be appropriate to gain perspective. Jupiter retrograde can feel a little like a prominent Saturn until you adjust to its energies, wherein you place a little less faith in the universe and more into your efforts. Your personal actions are going to be what makes a difference. Having faith is great but right now it is not about being passive but active in your values.
“When you do not stand for something
you become a soul tossed by the sea of chaos.”
I felt the Aesops Fable about the Bat was appropriate today. Enjoy.
The Bat, the Birds, and the Beasts
A great conflict was about to come off between the birds and the beasts.
When the two armies were collected together the bat hesitated which to join.
The birds that passed his perch said, “Come with us.”
But he said, “I am a beast.”
Later on, some beasts who were passing underneath him looked up and said, “Come with us.”
But he said, “I am a bird.”
Luckily at the last moment peace was made, and no battle took place, so the bat came to the birds and wished to join in their rejoicings, but they all turned against him and he had to fly away.
He then went to the beasts, but soon had to beat a retreat or else they would have torn him to pieces.
“Ah,” said the bat, “I see now.”
He that is neither one thing nor the other has no friends.
