MINDFUL MOTIVATIONS

Forecast of Friday, June 26th
Virgo Crescent Moon; Part 2

One of the most intelligent Virgoan attributes is to assess and reassess, especially toward the mental health and livelihood within that which is serving higher ideals… if your mind is overwhelmed, or your heart feels beaten—tend to these needs and allow yourself a respite.

❝No live organism can continue for long to exist sanely under conditions of absolute reality.❞
——Shirley Jackson

As the moon is still crescent, this is the ideal time to gain a little rest before reality so quickly picks up and goes beyond any sense of control… should you press yourself to unreasonable standards now, you’re potentially tainting an entire lunar cycle. This is not efficient, nor does it make any sense.

Virgoan energies are practical to a most alchemical degree—eat when you are hungry, sleep when you need rest. Breathe in and out. Come from a place of light and love, with a reverence for learning and self-care.

That is all.

Today Virgoan energies might be overcompensated for, as well—meaning, to be somewhat overwhelmed—as Mars in Pisces is squaring the Nodes (Gemini/Sagittarius) exactly through the twenty-ninth degrees… this mutable t square alignment may naturally try to balance itself through the seeking of a fourth point—a point to be found in Virgo.

All the more reason to be most practical—practical to alchemical degrees.

Today’s moon will only move to the twenty-second degree, while tomorrow’s moon will make it to the twenty-ninth degree and officially achieve the fulfilling of this fourth point… today could be used as a practice round for this effort.

Virgo never rushes.

The ideal, itself, can never—and mustn’t ever—be rushed.

❝To finish the means of acquiring knowledge is the greatest benefit that can be conferred upon mankind. It prolongs life itself and enlarges the sphere of existence.❞
——John Quincy Adams

There’s much to think about, and appropriately, Mercury governs today’s moon; Mercury begins connecting to Uranus today by sextile—a connection which will be complete June 30th through the inferior conjunction while also squaring Chiron: all of these celestial connections occurring through the ninth degrees of the zodiacal signs of Cancer, Taurus, and Aries—spiritual awakenings abound.

Where to begin, and through what means you will choose, will likely begin to consume your thoughts, and again, answers to these questions mustn’t be rushed… and all the more reason to gain your momentum now, if it’s needed.

Associating the specificity of a particular something or other should be deliberate—simply a detail within the process of clarification and connection.

❝I always wanted to be someone, but I should have been more specific.❞
——Lily Tomlin

Something more, if not more practical—if some of the details or reality of your ideals and bluer than blue horizons have been somewhat tarnished by recent awakenings or illuminated actualities… you may need to tend to this mental and emotional mess, as well, before forging forward any further, whatever this may entail—again, before the energies become too strong or more intense or just purely unmanageable.

Astrologer Dane Rudhyar associates the degree through which all of this building of Virgoan overcompensatory energy occurs with cosmic practicality—that “after a crisis one should seek to realign the renewed consciousness with the primordial revelation… any revolutionary movement, once it has succeeded in over-coming the inertia of the past and in toppling obsolete structures, needs to tap the most essential realities of what man represents and signifies in the universal Order; or else it merely re-embodies in a superficially altered manner the very things it has destroyed—this is the crucial moment.”¹

❝All human knowledge takes the form of interpretation.❞
——Walter Benjamin

Another way of looking at today’s energies through “the myths and stories that are the base elements of our humanity… it is, however, the ability to translate knowledge into a practical set of lessons for our day-to-day life that assists our progress as we grow and mature… stories from the past and from mythology are the verbalization of our inner archetypes.”²

Defeating feelings and disorienting thoughts can work you now… but you have the practicality now to render these distractions as just that—you’re much too measured in mindful motivations toward the work of your future… to reassess the wisdoms within your personal ideals, and the overlying motivation within your own authentic truths.

❝True freedom is impossible without a mind made free by discipline.❞
——Mortimer J. Adler
