Gemini into Cancer New Moon
"No matter where you go, there you are." I know that statement has been said a gazillion times in just as many different ways, I believe, however, that it is very appropriate for the reality of the now of this time frame. I once did a self portrait of me looking in a mirror, while the me of the future ran before me, looking backward through time at the me in the mirror of that present time. It was an amazing metaphor for me to swallow, yet it was and is, so appropriate as to what I see, in the now of today. We are constantly looking backward for answers as to why we are doing something, always trying to understand through our past experiences. I find this ironic. I wonder how it is that we have come to think that the person of yesterday could be anything at all like the person that we are today. We have learned lessons along the way that
the person of yesterday could only imagine. Our decisions then, were based on what we knew then, and not on who and what we are and know in the now. Where has this circular motion of decision making come
from? The group mind is easily directed toward one objective, which is usually utilized to control.
"The past is a cancelled check, the future is a promissory note, and the present is cash in hand." Which means that we can use it in any way that we see fit.We do not need permission to love our lives. Perception is reality. What is yours trying to tell you? Challenges are wake up calls to "do" something. If you find a situation uncomfortable, slow down, take a moment, and really ask yourself, why you find this particular thing, person, place, or objective offensive. What is it stirring in you? Why are you not at home in the moment that you are living? What exactly do you need to change or do to fix it? How much do you have to give up to please others, and how much do you expect them to give up to please you? What is your comfort zone? What disturbs it and why do you ignore it if it does? Your personal space is the most important place there is, and the things that surround you should be a very real reflection of who and what you are and not what is expected of you. The reasoning for this is that this is where you go to recharge your batteries and retreat from the tensions of the world. It should not be a place where you have an open door policy to the things you need to do, take care of, finish, or any obligations that are not volunteered by you, but expected of you, either. Your home is where your heart should be given full reign, and that place should be sacred to you, and anyone that you allow into it as well. If it is not cherished, it will not be supportive of your needs, instead it will house your fears, and you won't be able to hear your heart. Respect and connect, protect and reflect, your focus becomes your reality. In order to be clear on your objectives you must honor your self, and your place.Get rid of anything that does not fit this criteria, forgive yourself, and move on.
"As a man was driving around a dangerous hairpin mountain curve, a woman in a little red sports car tore around the bend from the opposite direction, cutting him off and forcing him to veer off the road. To add
insult to injury, as she sped by, she yelled, "Pig!" Furious, the man shook his fist at her and shouted, "Sow!"
He kept going around the curve, where he ran into a pig sitting in the middle of his side of the road." -Alan Cohen-
There are those who follow, and there are those who lead, almost always through osmosis, like Johnny
Appleseed. These few scatter their gifts across the land, blown by the idea, from a free and giving hand.
They are always moving, never reaping what they sow, although, almost always, there is a bumper crop
harvest, from what they do, say, or know.
Their burdens are heavy and the water continually flows, they don't think about it, they're just doing what
Enjoy the moment and the fruit along the way, don't bank on tomorrow, or fall for today. Believe in the promises, and utilize the cash on hand, always be mellow when ever you decide to take a stand. Remember always, and in all ways, that we have been gifted as a classroom, this wonderful playground, that we call the promised land. We are here for a few reasons; To grow and enjoy the moment, to love with total abandon, to trust in the truth that knows instinctively to be real, and to have faith beyond reason, that we can trust the way we feel.
