Sunday inspiration for healing a wounded heart

Today the Sun is in a harmonious sextile to Chiron, the planet of wounding and healing.  Chiron in the natal chart shows where each of us have been wounded, and where the key to our reclaiming the soul lie.

When the Sun shines its brilliant light of self-realization into the wounds of the soul we have the opportunity to release our bondage to the past and gain greater wisdom.

“A pearl is a beautiful thing that is produced by an injured life. It is the tear [that results] from the injury of the oyster. The treasure of our being in this world is also produced by an injured life. If we had not been wounded, if we had not been injured, then we will not produce the pearl.”

Sunday Inspiration for the Mars/Pluto square

Over the next few days Mars in Aries will be aligning in a challenging square formation to Pluto. As I wrote yesterday, Pluto is particularly powerful right now since its motion has stalled as it changes direction to travel retrograde for the next six months.  Mars fuels our desires and the expression of our needs – it inspires and motivates us and provides the enthusiasm that helps to keep us going.  In its own sign of Aries it is most powerful, and the desire nature is very strong right now which makes the square to Pluto that much more challenging.  Pluto says “Whoa! not so fast there buddy.  You can’t have everything you want, and I’m going to make sure of it.”

Because Mars and Pluto both deal with personal empowerment – Mars on a personal level and Pluto on a transformation level – any conflict between these two planets can cause us to feel blocked and our anger and frustration can become intense.  I love the way astrologer puts it: “Instead of fighting & amplifying the inner battle, then exhausting yourself. Be still and the path opens up to you.”

So today’s inspiration comes from Sarah MacLachlan from the song “Fumbling Towards Ecstasy”, one of the most spine-tingling songs ever:

All the fear has left me now
I’m not frightened anymore
It’s my heart that pounds beneath my flesh
It’s my mouth that pushes out this breath

And if I shed a tear I won’t cage it
I won’t fear love
And if I feel a rage I won’t deny it
I won’t fear love

Companion to our demons
They will dance, and we will play
With chairs, candles, and cloth
Making darkness in the day
It will be easy to look in or out
Upstream or down without a thought

And if I shed a tear […]

Sunday Inspiration: the beauty of mystery

Inspiration

“The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of true art and true science. Whoever does not know it and can no longer wonder, no longer marvel, is as good as dead, and his eyes are dimmed.”

– Albert Einstein

Sunday inspiration: You are already naked

Tomorrow I’ll analyze the riots over the weekend in London and how they tie in with the global unrest that is unfolding as Uranus moves closer to a square to Pluto, fulfilling all of the astrological praophecies.

But today, I’ve gone to an unconventional source for inspiration, Steve Jobs:

Sunday inspiration

“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

Steve Jobs, commencement address, Stanford University 2005.

Sunday inspiration

I haven’t posted anything inspirational for awhile, and in light of the drama unfolding in Japan I thought perhaps today would be a good day to do so.

This morning I used music by Douglas Spotted Eagle in my yoga practice and it reminded me of the tragedies that form the underpinning of the (mostly) comfortable life we have in the United States today.  Yet the Native American people possessed such natural wisdom and grace, despite the decimation of their population.

In their honor, I offer you  wisdom from Chief White Eagle of the Ponca tribe who died in 1914.



When you are in doubt, be still, and wait;
when doubt no longer exists for you, then go forward with courage.
So long as mists envelop you, be still;
be still until the sunlight pours through and dispels the mists
— as it surely will.
Then act with courage.

Ponca Chief White Eagle (1800’s to 1914)
