“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.” Oprah Winfrey
The Moon’s passage through “slow-moving, sustaining” Taurus inspires us to find contentment in the moment, in the simple things of life. It fosters an acceptance of where we are in our journey. The Dalai Lama teaches that when we are “discontented,” we want “more, more, more.” But, when we reflect contentment, we can say to ourselves, “Oh yes – I already have everything that I really need.” Contentment also provides us with the strength and wherewithal to continue on our journey; it replenishes our chalice.
This evening’s lunar trine to transforming Pluto (7:27 pm EST) also gives us a chance to clear away toxic emotions that have been holding us hostage. Too, it’s potentially a very sensual influence that can serve to unleash our passions, something that also naturally occurs when we are living fully in the moment. “A man who has not passed through the inferno of his passions has never overcome them.” Carl Jung
How would you characterize a “contented life?”
