What do you want? You want the moon? Just say the word and throw a lasso around it and pull it down. You can have the moon. The moon, a pony, what are we talking about here? Are we talking about what you want or are we talking about what you fantasize about wanting.
Hm, big difference.
This week is a good time to sort some things out, especially where the desire for love is concerned. Remember love? The truth of love is way bigger than the moon. It has a far greater reach then the child within you ever imagined, and yet love can be as easy eating candy.
The Moon and Venus are conjunct in Scorpio and trine Neptune in Pisces while Pluto is in Capricorn. Let this aspect support an interesting perspective as you consider your heart’s desire. Notice your typically fixed pattern of behavior in response to the stimuli of “love.” Is your response driven by your sensitivity? Is it something you can feel right now? Or is it more motivated by your practicality? Is it something you think about?
Does it compel you into a mental and emotional frenzy around the acquisition of it? Some might say this could feel like walking a tight rope. And some might think that this compulsion threatens them with a fall from grace. And you know what happens when a person thinks they will fall.
This week, bridge the gap between what you think, feel, and desire. How can you bring the three experience together in a way that is useful to you? It might go something like this:
I want to feel connected. I want to feel like I belong where I am. I know that feeling. I think it is useful and it compels me to seek it out, finding a thread of it here and length of it there. Pretty soon my instinct for roping it in is pretty good.
Sort it out. What do you want? What do you fantasize about? Can you make them come into balance?
In the midst of what you see as problematic, it can be difficult to recognize the opportunities. I can help you discover a new way of thinking that will assist you in managing and negotiating life’s obstacles. You will find that this new way of thinking provides you opportunities that you hadn’t previously noticed as well as affords you the confidence and desire to live your life in the driver’s seat.
