* Although exploring these hidden non-physical realms
can be transformational now,
don’t lose touch with the real world in the process.
* We might try to keep our feet firmly on the ground today
now that the cautious Capricorn Moon
combines determination with ambition.
However, the Moon’s alignments with relentless Pluto
and rebellious Uranus make it difficult to slow down and stay on task.
Talkative Mercury joins expansive Jupiter,
tempting us to exaggerate the importance of our analytical skills.
Unfortunately, too much self-confidence over-inflates our plans for the future.
*The Wheel keeps on rolling, churning events in a ceaseless progression of ups and downs,
either way freeing us from the past.
No one can escape its cyclical action, which can feel somewhat terrifying — no matter whether we are rising or falling.
When one is balanced on top there is a moment of crystal clarity,
but the only part of the Wheel not going up and down is the hub,
which is your eternal Self >>> the Source of Freedom.
Every one of us will occupy all the points on the wheel at some time or another.
The cycle of the wheel is >>> its lesson —
and we can learn to take comfort in it (as we do when we celebrate our birthday).
If you don’t like the look of things right now, just wait — things will change.
Of course, if you do like the look of things right now, enjoy it while it lasts, because that will change too!
*It’s all about challenges of choosing a partner!
At a crossroads, one cannot take both paths.
We have had so many ways of looking at sex and relationships across cultures and centuries.
Classically, that reminded us of the real challenges posed by romantic relationships, with the protagonist often shown in the act of making an either-or choice.
To partake of a higher ideal often requires sacrificing the lesser option.
The path of pleasure eventually leads to distraction from spiritual growth.
The gratification of the personality eventually gives way to a call from spirit as the soul matures.
The feeling of romantic love with today’s image of energy, showing Adam and Eve at the gates of Eden when everything was still perfect!
This interpretation portrays humanity before the Fall, and can be thought to imply a different sort of choice –
– the choice of evolution over perfection,
or the choice of personal growth through relationship –
– instead of a fantasy where everything falls into place perfectly
and is taken care of without effort!
What a thought!
* When treading among sleeping tigers — or slippery stones — step gingerly and don’t stumble.
