Making a better world, one thought at a time.

9.3.2015 Look to the season ahead. Don't get stuck in the past.

Be realistic about what you can do. Take necessary precautions.  If you have been hard on yourself, let some of that stuff go -- especially the part about not forgiving yourself for mistakes.
Moon opposing Saturn brings harsh scrutiny, and sometimes a downer mood. Brush it all away with rational, uplifting hope.

9.2.2015 Be happy. Things are going well. Avoid confusion, though.

"The stars align" to bring some practical answers.  Neptune opposing Sun stirs up some hazy understanding, so clarify precisely what you want to understand.

Enjoy Taurus Moon. It enhances music appreciation. It's usual to find yourself singing during Taurus energy.

One thing you need to look out for: being 'at the top of your game' isn't what it's cracked up to be. Awareness and humility are better goals.

9.1.2015 Anxiety? Trust yourself.

Those unsettled emotions under the surface could be about lack of trust. Maybe it's fleeting insecurity, or maybe it's chronic post traumatic residue. In any case, the key is trusting your ability to solve whatever problem comes along.

Gentle, genuine self concern is good today. There is a lot of good energy to be had, if we realize how to incorporate it. (Aries Moon|Uranus trine Leo Mars|Venus.)

As for the Saturn, Pluto and Neptune challenges: Don't let yourself get cranked up. Personal renovation doesn't have to be volatile. It can be cool, calm and successful. Disable eruptions before they occur.

8.31.2015 Sometimes it's better to absorb rather than overdo.

Today, Aries Moon may bring the need to avoid pushing too hard against the obvious 'grain'.
Saturn offers a solution. You can still be active, which is a highly motivated desire, but it may be better to be active in observation rather than participation.  This is very hard for a lot of us, as it feels as if we're pulling back a highly spirited horse who wants to run.
Discipline isn't easy. But it may be practical.

8.30.2015 Step back. Anchor yourself in this spinning world. Appreciate.

How many worlds are there? Which ones can we access from our simple consciousness?

We contemplate other planets and visiting them.
But we have our own precious planet.

This Earth is filled with splendid life forms, matrixes for survival and varying degrees of awareness. There is so much learning here.  It's a big school.

What is your lesson today? How about consciousness?
Can you wake from the trance of the mundane? The truth is, nothing is mundane. Being awake to the splendor around us ties us together with every living thing, and we see the usual in unusual ways.

Sun+Jupiter expands contemplation, but limitations (Saturn and Neptune aspects) must be transcended.

Whatever your limitations, sink your thoughts into this planet as the miracle it is. You may begin to feel the magic of being one with all things. Anchored, here, now.

8.29.2015 Just do your best. Movement is better than stagnation.

The mutable full Moon (Pisces-Virgo) can mean universal renewal. But can also bring tendencies for depleting resources quickly. With Jupiter in the mix this year, expanding your world view is helpful, but reign in over-estimation. Be realistic.
To reduce rigidity, keep moving. Literally or figuratively.

8.28.2015 Every creative idea you have will be manifested at some point in time.

This is the message for today, addressing the necessity for patience.

"Don't fret about how much or little you can make those wonderful dreams reality. When you consider the Universe, and how it all works, one lifetime is like one brush stroke.
Be patient with your process. It could be going on for eons. Why be upset if you can't make it all happen now? Who can?
Be part of the flowing unfoldment and you'll feel better about what you are able to accomplish."

-- a calming message for a frustrated artist.

Moon opposite Venus|Mars: emotional tensions
Sun|Jupiter opposite Neptune : confusion…miscalls
Solution:  Sun trine Uranus: be inventive.
