“You do not need to know precisely what is happening, or exactly where it is all going. What you need is to recognize the possibilities and challenges offered by the present moment, and to embrace them with courage, faith and hope.” Thomas Merton
While most of us do require a fair amount of certainty in our lives – if only to root us more firmly in the ground – the notion of fresh, new, creative possibilities swirling around us can also be something that is very sustaining, if not mandatory, for our spirit to feel more fully alive. It’s like once we identify a target to aim for, something inside ourselves immediately starts to spring into action, and in this process, we can become instantly energized and transformed, even though we know that we probably still have a long way to go before we reach our destination.
Today’s cosmic lineup really has that kind of burgeoning flavor about it with the waning “adventurous” Aries Moon, still in its Full phase, and coming off of a rare, galvanizing lunar eclipse. Too, eclipses can often bring us the answers or confirmation that we’ve been seeking for our lives, which can be very energizing in itself. As mentioned in yesterday’s blog post, last night’s eclipse may especially shed insights on how to better navigate our relationships while also teaching us about how to be truer to ourselves.
The Moon’s square to transforming Pluto today (11:56 am) also helps us with some detox efforts – if we’re so inclined to go in that direction – and we may very well want to seriously consider that option now, so we can move about a whole lot lighter and more contentedly in our being. Of course, it’s up to each one of us to decide what might constitute “purification” for our soul, at the moment. It could be, for instance, something as simple as deleting backlogged email messages – which is something that I finally did the other day and felt so much better about. In my case, though, this wasn’t really a simple task as I purged over 800 emails!
Then, later on tonight, it’s back to full-speed, razzle dazzle when Luna meets up with spontaneous, non-conforming Uranus (9:30 pm), which is an opportunity for us, among other things, to break out of our mold and do something maybe quirky just for fun.
