Sunday Saturn inspiration: “Routine is freedom from time”

10866890_s

“Routine is not a prison, but the way to freedom from time.  The apparently measured time has immeasurable space within it, and in this it resembles music.”

― May Sarton

I’m afraid I have still been a bit in the Underworld after a very trying twelve months, but a bit more rest and rejuvenation and I will be back in full swing.  The Planetary Illuminations report had to go on hiatus in October but will be back in November.

Saturn is preparing to square my Moon, and as the Prince of Solitude and Structure (Saturn) applies more and more pressure to my emotions and security issues (Moon) I decided it was a good time for some Visioncrafting of my own.  As I made my lists of the things I want to bring into my life in the seven categories of human experience the thing that kept emerging was scheduling time and honoring a routine for the things that bring richness to my inner self: yoga, meditation, walks in the woods…

As a busy business person I am no stranger to calendars and schedules, but when it comes to enriching my inner life I tend to resist conforming my inner world into the rigid world of time.  Saturn sits right on my Sun and is always reminding me, as he so often does, that time is passing quickly.  So in the spiritual side of my life I often long for the space and freedom of spontaneity and the absence of regulation.

I took a break during my Visioncrafting to look for today’s inspiration post, and the first thing to catch my eye was this quote from May Sarton.  Suddenly my […]

Sunday Poetry: I am the Universe

19562115_sMy bones are mountains.
My tears, rushing rivers.
The earth’s crust is my skin.
Trees adorn my head.
The sun, moon, and stars
Are in my eyes.
The ether of the Universe is my breath.
Separateness is an illusion.
I am all things and all things are me.

-Anya Phenix

Aries Full Moon Eclipse: October 2013

eclipseThe Moon is full in Aries tonight at 7:37 pm Eastern, meaning the Moon will be opposite the Libra Sun.  The opposition of the Moon to the Sun indicates a tension between emotion (Moon) and reason (Sun), between conscious thought (Sun and instinctive drives (Moon). The word “tension” is defined as “the state of being stretched tight.”  In the Full Moon (or any other planetary opposition as well) we are being stretched to our outer limits to use all of our resources and gifts as nature intended.  Full Moons can be times of extremes, offering us the opportunity to stretch beyond our normal comfort level. When the Moon is in Aries we long (Moon) to be able to be no less than our complete and absolute selves (Aries) – we long to have our own way, to initiate actions that will effectuate our desires, to fly solo in the direction of our dreams.  This self-oriented positioning is diametrically opposed to the Libra Sun which attempts to create harmony by bringing together opposites and conflicting forces, giving up and compromising in order to bring that sense of harmony into being. The Libra Full Moon is always an interesting event because the Full Moon itself requires that we balance and integrate two opposing forces, and the Libra influence here assists in that integration.  Somehow we must find a way to ensure that we have unfettered access to our own dreams and desires (Aries) while remaining in relationship and finding compromise (Libra).  Rather like the US government over the past week! Although this is an astronomical eclipse, it is a weak one by astrological standards.  Astronomers classify a lunar event as an eclipse when the nodes of the Moon are […]

Sunday inspiration for Pluto turning direct

leaves

Sorrow prepares you for joy.

It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter.

It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place.

It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow.

Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place.
-Rumi

This beautiful writing from Rumi captures the essence of a major Pluto event that may occur in our lives.  Pluto does often act with violence, eliminating and clearing out the old and decaying patterns so that they can be replaced with fresh new growth that will inspire and bring joy.

A great trust in the wisdom of Universal cycles is required to surrender to this elimination and ripping away of things we thought we hold dear, and this kind of trust only comes with time.  But since we have no option under Pluto – we must surrender because there is no way to control the outcome – Pluto becomes the teacher and the bringer of that wisdom and our trust becomes deeper and more secure.

Far better things will take the place of whatever Pluto’s strong winds shake from your heart.

The “Freedom/Closeness” Dilemma in relationships

Breaking Pointe Breaking Pointe

My new guilty television pleasure is the program “Breaking Pointe,” a reality show about dancers in a ballet company in Salt Lake City.  They ran last year’s season on BBC America which is where I found it, and then this year’s season ran on the CW network.

One of the featured dancers, Allison, is involved in a classic push me/pull you relationship with Rex, another of the dancers.  In this kind of relationship one partner is pushing to be closer and the other one is distancing – pushing away.  However what often happens is that the roles switch and the formerly distancing partner becomes the one who wants to be closer.

In the Allison/Rex dynamic, Allison was involved with another man, Jonathan.  Then she and Rex had an affair and she broke up with Jonathan.  Rex still wanted to be with her and she pushed him away.  Then she realized Jonathan was a jerk and now she wants to be with Rex.  Now Rex is saying, not so fast – I’m not so sure I want this.

Howard Sasportas and Liz Greene coined the term the “freedom/closeness” dilemma to describe the conflict between the basic need to attach and feel safe with another human being and the need to differentiate the Self and become more comfortable as an autonomous individual.  This is a process that begins in infancy but it can become distorted and corrupted in certain family situations.  But really, those of us with this dynamic were born with a prospensity towards this conflict, and this is evident in our birthcharts.

Certain signs and planetary placements crave closeness and security, and others indicate a push for greater autonomy and freedom.  The water and earth signs tend to […]
