I’ve been feeling quite weird since the referendum’s result yesterday. (UK leaving the EU)
But I think, mostly, I am tapping into the collective confusion.
I know that, because my life has been quite messy and unclear for over a year now. Since I left my “stability” I’ve been working hard on a stronger sense of solidity and strength. (The kind that does not come from any temporary situation)
It really seems like I have truly understood that everything is so changeable that if we attach our happiness/security/meaning to anything outside ourselves we are bound, sooner or later, to be in despair.
I don’t see any other way to achieve inner peace than achieving it through some serious personal work. What else can we do really?
How can you stop life from happening? (in a larger sense)
Everything inevitably has an end and that causes suffering.
(No news for the Buddhists)
Places, countries, jobs, relationships, economy, you name it. There is always going to be the birth, development and then death of something. That’s the natural law.
And our ego self isn’t necessarily our wisest source of guidance, most of the time I find it to be just the opposite really.
Vanity, pride, greed, selfishness… the unconscious fear of disappearing is very often a guiding force to our ego. Fear of not being good enough, fear of not having enough, fear of the fear..
There must be a way out!
And for me, the way out is only through finding Me.
I really don’t know what the future holds. Even when I look at future planetary transits (that so many times can be counterproductive as it easily becomes a source of fear and anxiety) I don’t truly know what is going to happen.
It might be this, it might be that.
In this way, I don’t feel I have much power over the future really.
My power is over myself, is over how I learn to master myself. Not about how I suppress my emotions but, more perhaps, about how I can work with these powerful energies. CONSCIOUSLY.
It’s about finding ways to keep yourself centred so nothing (am I deluding myself?!) can throw you off balance. Nothing!
Feeling fearful or anxious won’t make any situation better.
And so I’ve practiced yoga twice today and I’m really paying attention to boundaries. It feels good.
The funny thing is that retrograde Saturn is making an exact trine to my MC and I ended up, surprisingly, leading a yoga practice here in the mornings. Tomorrow is my third day doing it..
congrats on leading the yoga! wow. found you through jbuss! xo
Thank you! Wonderful! ♡ xx
You can’t stop life from happening, but you can direct your path through it. Having power over yourself and mastering yourself means you also have power over the future – Your future, and that you will cause yourself to take a ‘high road’ through a transit that affects you (a transit has many possible manifestations) – not a ‘low road’ caused by excessive fear and anxiety……
Exactly, that’s totally how I see also! The revolution and change must happen within first. ♡
Saturn is a wonderful teacher if we can work with his lessons. Then he is like thr comfort of a kindly (but still strict) grandfather. He makes us strong for our own good but owowowowwwww it’s hard work! Best wishes 🌙🌟 Asha
Yes, mastery is under the dominion of Saturn I think. For sure. We can only ripe it’s fruits through hard work and somehow I do appreciate that too. As I grow older I’m finding out that Saturn does have a strong influence in my psyche/chart. Thank you for your comment ♡♡
Saturn has a strong effect on my chart and it has taken me a long time to make peace with him! 🌟🌙
Saturn always takes time! ♡
How beautifully put! So true. Amazing how far one has to travel to understand the really basic truths you’ve expressed, isn’t it? Shine on!
Thank you so much for your lovely comment! 🙂 ♡
