These days it may seem as if it has never been truer that the probability of survival is equal to the angle of arrival. While it may have been said that flying is the second greatest thrill known to humans, landing is the first!
We have a lunar eclipse pending in Leo tonight. I am looking forward to it. I could use a lift from the same old news and Leo is just the creative entrepreneur I want when I am figuring how to get around the turbulence of my old patterns and history.
Saturn is aspected in Sagittarius for this eclipse. Argh! What a drag. My “around the world, free as a bird, solo flight” will now be chaperoned with the harsh judgments of a “straighten up and fly right” kind of bird. This is going to require some major wind beneath my wings in order to make any progress.
I hear you, why is there always a drag? I know, who wants a drag? But that drag serves purpose in the aerodynamics of ascension. It creates a necessity to welcome one thing while embracing another. The trajectory forward is found through the resistance of the two opposed energies. The resistance can provide balance until we have momentum in what can be, the choppy blue yonder.
Mind feeling that resistance as a force against you, particularly one that you imagine you need to defend yourself from. Instead, remember that the resistance is going to allow you to move forward. It is not what you think. It is not holding you back, it is there to get you up and going!
This month, consider practicing in tandem with the resistance and take off and land from the high ground.
- Change your mind to feel comfortable with the benefits of resistance.
- Mind thinking about changing other people’s minds until you have changed yours.
- Get clear AND curious (no judgment) about what you want.
- Simotaneously respect your ideas and those that seemingly oppose your ideas.
- Find the tension between the seemingly opposed and utilize that tension as common ground for take off and landing.
Afterall, flying is undoubtedly an adventure in discovery, but a good take off and a safe landing can’t be beat.
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.
