Communication, by definition, means the exchange of thoughts, messages, or the like, by speech, signals, or writing. If you don't communicate well, it should be made a priority to learn. Most people don't realize that bad communication is almost always the source of their frustration. Communication connects every part of a relationship (business, friendship or love).
Any conjunction is an initiation and Mars rules ‘who you are’ and ‘what you want’, while Saturn rules your definition of reality and your physical limits. If you are feeling frustrated, you may need to clarify your desires more, then take tangible, practical steps toward them.
The human part of us tends to 'think' rather than 'feel' and thus creates the illusion - that we are NOT connected to every other living organism in the Universe. The Neptune part of us KNOWS we ARE! When you get back far enough, you can see just how inter-connected we are - Mother Earth and all Her creations!
Tuning in to the energy and rhythm of the planets can serve as a useful *guide* as you move along your Individual Path. It also helps to understand your place within the context of the larger Social & Collective Story.
This month we are feeling the pressure to produce results - either from ourselves or outer circumstances (or both). Either way, you have to be extremely mindful of how you spend your energy at this time. Strategic thinking takes practice but you must make the effort to expand your mind to access additional options you may not have realized you had ... and then TRY THEM! (What do you have to lose?) Mother Earth provides EVERYTHING we could possibly need to live this life. It is all within each and every one of us.
Independent means "free from the control of others; self-reliant". To me, it means OWN YOUR STUFF - KEEP IT REAL! Everything about you - the good, the bad and the ugly - is because of you and your choices. We make choices based on the knowledge and experience we have at the time, but the choices are our own nonetheless.
This is an opportunity to connect to miracles, if you believe in them. It may be miracles, but it may also be the alignment between your Heart & Soul, that part of you that trusts your intuition and believes in a higher power or Source or Universal presence.
Life is all about choices. And if your parents were busy, like most parents are, with survival and keeping a roof over your head, clothes on your back and food in your belly, sitting you down once in a while to point out your choices and their consequences probably wasn't a priority. That's okay - you chose your parents for the lessons they would facilitate. You got what you got and you didn't get what you didn't get. The choice now is how can you use what you did get in the most effective way?
This energy activates your ability to dissolve the ego (momentarily) and allow your SoulSelf to shine through! Your Spiritual center, base or practice comes up – how is it supporting you? If you’ve gotten away from your practice, this energy will make it easier to connect to your Spirit...
How do you express your individuality? Who are you? (the REAL you) Do you allow people to know who you truly are? There is no greater gift than to feel comfortable in your own skin. So many of us only see the flaws and we constantly overlook the strengths and gifts that we possess naturally. The energy this month supports the full expression of those gifts and has no tolerance for limited thinking ... unless it's limited to thinking about your Self!
