30th July 2013: Uranus Under Pressure

Keep on Keeping On

As we approach the month end feelings may be running high and tensions sharpening the air around us. For the coming few days Uranus is especially under pressure from Mars and Pluto forming a T Square, and Venus and the North Node forming a Yod. In many ways these are very different energies, the former more explosive than the latter, and the latter more creative than the former, however, combined they create a powerful force with which we must contend in the coming days.

Once again the pressure cooker scenario comes to mind. We may feel ourselves being pulled this way and that, squeezed through suffocating situations which feel oppressive to the extreme, and desperate to once and for all throw off the things in life which limit and bind us. Which is quite handy, really, because as uncomfortable as all that may feel, we do have an opportunity now to break free from some old limitations if we choose to.

Chances are the real issue here is one of emotion and how we manage it. This seems to be the theme these days, with Grand Trines in Water continuing to lap upon our shores. No matter how difficult the externals of a situation may be, it is our emotional reaction to it which largely dictates how well we navigate it. If we allow emotions to rise up unfettered and rule the day we can so easily lose the very focus that we need more than ever to find our way through.

If, on the other hand, we refuse to acknowledge our emotions we lose touch with an instinctive part of us which has enormously valuable information to share. Finding the middle ground can be tough and takes practice. We may fail over and over, but the wonderful thing is, in the dance with our emotions we can always begin again.

And it is that beginning again which features strongly in the coming days. We may find ourselves thrown off track, encountering unexpected obstacles or faced with the behaviour of others which disrupts our own path. We may be full of emotion, and I’m not talking the pleasant, cosy, loving kind! Anger, indignation, frustration may be our companions now, and we are being challenged to find new ways to deal with them which allows us to keep moving forward even as we process the stresses that we face.

It is vital now, that we keep on keeping on. The cosmos is alive with energy. It’s truly buzzing and we need to stay on the move for that energy to be used in the most positive way. There’s no point leaving our car revving in the drive when we’ve filled it with fuel and we need to get somewhere. Yes, there may be diversions and dead ends on the way, and the sat nav may even give up the ghost leaving us to our map reading skills, but we still need to be on the move towards our destination.

Which is why being able to begin again when it comes to managing our emotions is so important. If we get thrown off course, blocked or challenged en route, we face the prospect of being totally thrown by the power of our emotions right now. It’s important we don’t allow that to happen. Yes we need to acknowledge and feel them. Yes they may have important information for us to take into account as we move forward, but we need to be the boss and not allow them to blind us to the potential of the moment.

So the cosmic advice for the coming few days is this: ‘Give your emotions space. Feel them. Have a bit of rant or a cry. Scribble them out in your journal or dance them out in your garden. Do what’s necessary to move through them and then move on. No emotion as so important now that it should be given precedence over progress’.

Here’s wishing everyone a positive day.

Hello Sarah,
You seem to be absolutely right with me. When does this awful time come to an end - if ever!

Sandra Smyre 30th July 2013 10:16 am

What an interesting time this is turning out to be! Good thing we all know to expect the unexpected cause that's what is happening. Wake up each day and plow thru, hoping against hope it is taking us to a better place. Am grateful for everything I have and more, but know deep down it is supposed to be so much more than we have ever known. I love you
Sarah and especially love the readers and their comments. May we all meet in the 5thD and sing and dance to our hearts content.XO :smitten:

Even though my current experience is a precarious one, I know in my heart that I will emerge victorious, and shine a little brighter because of it. :)

"We may fail over and over, but the wonderful thing is, in the dance with our emotions we can always begin again." I'm so grateful for this. I do find myself failing over & over, so it's nice to know the Universe is patient with me. :smitten:

Sarah,
Is it Uranus under pressure or pressure under ur-anus (a kick in the butt)?

Since e-motions are energy in motion, I figure we're moving BECAUSE of our emotions, not in spite of them.

No wonder this is such a "moving" experience for me.

kay 30th July 2013 10:23 pm

Me too, Cobalt. Precarious in the extreme. But what’s the worse that can happen? I guess that would be a personal response for everyone. We could lose every 3D attachment. Every plank of the foundation. We could gain every new earth advantage. There are still moments when I want the old security, but right now, this evening, I’m good with this. Keep on keeping on, as Sarah says, is probably all we’ve got to do. I know you’re right, we shine a little brighter for it.

Mashed potato and Sandra seem to be in the same boat, plowing through those murky waters. And bluefeatheryone, who feels like Gaia herself to me.

It’s damned hard to write these comments. I still say we need to be having this conversation over the dinner table with beer and wine flowing.

Mik’s dog, Kay’s cats, Shapeshifter’s cat. How wonderful that they’re sharing the journey with us. I’m so grateful that my guys share this space with me.

That was the quote you were trying to remember, Cyndy. Good one.

This is so garbled. Good night and sweet journeying to all.

BUGGER THIS FOR A LARK!!

I'd give my right teste to be out on the beach, in the sunshine, sipping mojito's with a smokin' hot babe next to me rather than deal with all this "cosmic consciousness / being" bullspit... Nothing gets better, does it? I say this is a lousy run operation, the Universe is what I'm talking about, and I say it's time we had a change in government /governing forces 'round here!

Who's with me?? :tickedoff:

kay 30th July 2013 11:12 pm

I popped back in to see who was still up, and there you were, Delanderius. I say do it. Do that thing you’d rather be doing. That’s how we’re using the new energy. Choosing . When you say nothing gets any better, you’re not speaking for me and,really, “better” is not a term I particularly care for. It is what it is, and we are where we are…at the moment.

shapeshifter 31st July 2013 8:10 am

Delanderius,
No sense offering up body parts at this point. Self sacrifice is not a prerequisite for turning the tide. Life's a beach if you shift your perspective a bit. It's a cosmic Kayak ride through the wild waves of emotion, never a dull moment. It's so much better than feeling dead inside.

Kay, I'm with you and the critters. Hunter keeps reminding me to take a snooze when things get too crazy and he places his paw over my heart when he senses that I need some calming energy. I think he's actually an angel in a furry costume. lol

bluefeatheryone 31st July 2013 10:35 am

I'm so enjoying reading everyone's comments.
Kay, I agree with the meeting over the dinner table with beer & wine flowing (or coffee with me LOL). I have a cat too that I adore. Definitely my family.
Shapeshifter, absolutely love the image of the "angel in a furry costume" & couldn't agree more. Animals mean so very much to me!
Thank you all for the warm laughs. :smitten:

shapeshifter 31st July 2013 6:08 pm

bluefeatheryone,
Don't you love this back room where we can pick up loose threads and stretch the conversation?

I smell the coffee brewing, want some?

bluefeatheryone 31st July 2013 9:05 pm

You really make me laugh, shapeshifter! ;D
I wasn't aware this was a back room. LOL. Something about that doesn't sound right. LOL.
Yes, I'll take some coffee please! :smitten:

Oh dear mashed potato. sounds like you're not having a fun time right now?? I know some who are and some who aren't and some who shift between the two on an hourly basis!! Wherever we are on that spectrum one thing we can all be confident of is that things will changeeventually :thumbs:

Indeed Sandra, although right now just having a damn good sleep would do me! :)

thank you for these words Cobalt. I, too, feel precarious right now, and your words gave me some strength this morning xx :smitten:

Oh there's always one Shapeshifter lol! Of course it's going to be you :2funny :smitten:

Sarah Varcas 5th August 2013 4:18 am

Delanderius, hang on to your testes. There's no need to make quite such a dramatic gesture! The universe is little impressed with such offerings these days. stay in tact, find that beach and enjoy... :thumbs:
