It is a strange, almost surreal time, don’t you think?
Sometimes an aspect that doesn’t seem like it will be all that strong surprises us (me) and turns out to be quite potent indeed. We’re under such an influence now.
I’m referring to Venus at late Libra quincunx Jupiter conjunct Uranus at late Pisces. Just the words sound strange, don’t you think? (This will be hanging around through about the last weekend of November.) While these energies can be very positive at times, they can also be confusing and overwhelming.
- Overwhelm. Just too much to do or to even think about!
Yes indeed. This aspect can send the arrow to tilt easily. Can feel like Micky in the Sorcerer’s Apprentice (from the Disney movie, Fantasia).
- Feeling uninspired, tired or lacking in imagination, especially just when you really need it!
Or you may be just the opposite and be feeling so inspired that ideas are coming in from every direction and you can’t keep up! So you just ignore it all.
- Feeling unmotivated and out of focus.
Feeling spacey? Tired? Want to sleep more than usual? Or are your sleep patterns felt kind of strange? Had a few vivid and weird dreams?
- Chaos seems to be ruling the day! Things fall out of order when you’re not even looking. Again, the image of Micky trying to get control of the mess in the Sorcerer’s Apprentice comes up for me.
- Worried about finances? I’m hearing it on many fronts and seems to be up more than ever these days. It’s as though in the battle of Expenses vs. Income, the former has won.
There are two underlining energies here. One is excess to one extreme or another. There seems to be too much of whatever is going on. Too much to do. Not enough inspiration. Too many ideas. Not enough time. Too many bills. Not enough money.
The other is along the lines of “Whoa, I didn’t see that one coming!”. Meaning something is upon us before we even knew it was coming. (Quincunxes bring forward what was lurking in our blind spots).
Here are my suggestions:
One: Do not take on ONE more thing right now unless it is critical that you do.
Two: Diligently practice doing one step at a time. Put something in front of you, and only one something, and do it, otherwise you will get scattered and tangent and do nothing at the end of the day. I know this is one well. . . and under the current influences it is especially important.
Three: Say this as often as necessary: I Have Enough. I Do Enough. I Am Enough.
And finally, remember this, too, shall pass. We only have a few more weeks of this.
I just can’t end this without offering a thought or two on what might be the higher expression of this energy. Here goes:
I think this energy is here to open us, maybe even force us, to see new possibilities. Things you may have never considered. Some may be uncomfortable. Some may be bizarre. Or maybe they just feel impossible to you now. I say, just write it down. Capture it before it goes away. Think if of as writing down a dream while it still feels real.
As I said, it is a strange, almost surreal time. Yet to see new, I mean truly new, options and possibilities for our life, things have to get stirred up and seem unsolvable at times.
Remember what Mr. Einstein said? “You can’t solve a problem at the same level it was created.”
Reach higher for the solution. And do not rule out anything that comes in now. Just write it down so you can consider it later.
I will now leave you with the words to a song I think rather says it all:
There is a voice shouting in my head
And there is a voice
That is singing there instead
And there is a choice
To which one will I listen
For one the road is long and hard
The other yeah, the road will glisten
And not a day goes by that I don’t think I’m crazy
And not a day goes by
That the answers don’t seem hazy
Sometimes I’m lost and I’m down and out
But then I’m lost and lazy
But if I were lost in the middle of the Light
You know it would surely save me
And there are forces to guide you
Spirits beside you
Rivers to ride you home to the stars
Get your ticket to the stars.
May you always remember that there are forces to guide you, Spirits beside you and rivers to ride you home to the stars.
Blessings and Light,
