Numerology/Astrology for 5/22/16
5/22/16 is the number 9. The number 9 is calling to your artistic self to find a new expression in your life. It is time to slow down and to connect to the deepest voice in your soul and find a way to turn that voice, that idea, that insight, into something inspirational to you and others. Life calls out for you to make something out of all this energy exchange that is happening to you right now. What needs to be born, completed, and opened? Take the time to let that feeling manifest into action and discover your hidden talents and hidden self. It will be a beautiful journey. The Moon is in Sagittarius all day, and you want to do things in big ways that expand your awareness and insight. With the Sun in opposition to Mars this morning and with a Full Moon just having occurred yesterday you can be rather hot-headed now so watch your temper and think before you talk. Careless or impulsive behavior can be a problem under this transit. It’s easy to feel thwarted or to not be in touch with what it is you really want at this time. Even if you do know what you want, how to go about getting it doesn’t come naturally right now. However, through the events or the tensions of this time, you can ultimately get to a better understanding of yourself, and particularly of your desires. Complicating matters, Mercury stations direct. While Mercury’s direct motion can bring increasing clarity over the coming days and weeks, the station itself can initially magnify problem areas or confusion. The Sun’s sesquiquadrate with Pluto this afternoon can stimulate or aggravate fears and any feelings you may have of being powerless or overlooked. A tendency to want to control your life through some form of manipulation is strong during this influence. Experiencing obstacles in your path can force you into the position of using all of your resources to fight back and you can discover a part of yourself that you never knew was there.
The divine itself is life in motion. The divine is using the situations of our lives to accomplish its own awakening, and many times it takes the difficult situations to wake us up.
The irony is that most human beings spend their lives avoiding painful situations. Not that we are successful, but we are always trying to avoid pain. We have an unconscious belief that our greatest growth in consciousness and awareness comes through beautiful moments.
We may, indeed, make great leaps in consciousness through beautiful moments, but I’d say that most people make their greatest leaps in consciousness in the difficult times.
Let the pain break down the old personality that is no longer useful in your life. Yes, letting it go is very hard and the ego fights to stay in control, which causes even more suffering. Let go. Surrender into the unknown and allow what is truly you to surface after the explosion and destruction of the old self. Pain is only a symptom of awakening which the ego is attempting to stop. Let the pain move completely through the body without judging it. Allow all the chakras to touch that suffering and give you insight, advice, and perspective. When you allow all parts of yourself to touch and love that pain, that pain will change and it will become something wonderful, I promise!
